Easter Mini Sessions | Jersey Shore Photographer | Ocean County Photography

Easter is almost here!

For everyone who has been asking here is the Easter set up for this year!!! SOOO super cute! My perfect private studio will allow you and your family to come take Easter pictures with out the crowds, the waiting, and the stimulation from many commercial studios. Everyone who has their session up to and on April 17th will have their edited photos to them by April 19th so that they will have them in time for Easter

Note: The bunny shown in pictures is fake. There will be no live animals during this set up. As many states in the US it is actually illegal if you do not have the proper licensing plus very dangerous (to the animals and children).

Traveling to Disney

Phew!! I think I can finally say it will out jinxing it, goodbye winter and goodbye SNOW! Gosh, as I get older the snow gets less less fun, haha! But watching my princess think that she is a Queen and can freeze everything is honestly the most joyous feeling in the world. I thought Disney movies and Disney World was great when I was little but golly it is SOOO much better as a Mommy!! Quinn and Emerson watch all sorts of Disney movies, and tend to get stuck on one and we watch on repeat for a good amount of time and then on to the next haha, but sharing this time with them has been amazing.

In the beginning of October, we as a family, both set of grandparents as well, went to Disney World for our first family vacation. As there was always something going on and pretty crazy, it was great to watch the magic in their eyes. Some may say that they were “too young” but I would not have changed it for the world. Quinn still to this day asks about it and asks for Elsa when she gets her hair cut because we got her first hair cut there and they of course made it so so special!! I can’t wait to book a vacation to head on back there to have some more family time. The best part of planning to go is that one of my great friends just became a travel agent, for Disney! Say whattttt! How cool right!?! Many people think that using a travel agent will cost them money, and it doesn’t! Same price you would pay with out a travel agent but some extra love and help planning. Next time we go we will be using Deanna to help us set everything us! Hop on over to her page to take a look to see how she can help you with your traveling!!

Prints | Not Just Digital Photos | New Jersey Photographer

Do you ever print your digital photos?!

Here at Smile Photography we know how important it is to many of our clients that they receive digital copies of their photos. But we have been finding that these amazing quality digital photos are being printed at locations with poor quality or worse yet, not at all! We have done extensive research into professional labs to bring the best quality at the most affordable pricing! We stand by professional labs therefore if any products are purchased through us we GUARANTEE color. Starting today we are having an introductory rate of 15% off our already amazingly affordable prices on our a la carte products AND PACKAGES!! All prices below include shipping for average shipping and processing fees. If you need something quicker, there would be an additional fee. Our introductory sale will be from now until June 15th. This is for any photo that Smile Photography LLC has taken for you from any session, not just current sessions. (If we do not have the photo any more we may need you to send the high resolution photo back to us as we do not guarantee holding on to files passed a certain time from session.) So contact us now to get those beautiful images printed for your home and loved ones.

Cake Smash Bucket List | South Jersey Photographer | First Birthdays

My Favorite Session

One of my favorite photography sessions is a cake smash.  You may ask why; I prefer to ask why not!?  -  Cake smash photo sessions are so so so much fun!  I love celebrating such a great milestone with a family.  It's not just about the child, as much as it is about the family as a whole.  So after thinking about it for a while, I have created a bucket list of cake smash themes that I would love to do in studio.  I'm so excited to try these new themes so I am offering them for a discount.  The discount is first come, first served so please contact me quickly to reserve a spot for your family.
