The Studio

If you are booking a studio session, you will be traveling to my home studio in Chadwick Beach. (Toms River, NJ 08735).

Here, you will not only feel right at home because I am able to provide you with the simple amenities of a home (boppy, bottle warmer, changing table, fridge, couch, etc...); I believe it also provides an unparalleled level of trust to those that may not know me personally prior to our session because my studio is on the same property as my home.

I do not take my career lightly. Handing your brand new baby that you have been carefully caring for since you found out you were pregnant to a new person, professional or not, can be a little unsettling.


Rest assured that I am thoroughly trained to be handling your little one safely throughout the session. I am also fully vaccinated & insured.

Welcome to my happy place! 

Infuse the walls of your home with custom designed displays featuring fine art prints, metals and/or acrylics.
Add keepsake collection boxes and/or albums to your coffee table or even on the mantle.

Prints starting at $190
Collections starting at $990

The products that I offer are unique pieces that I believe best preserve and showcase your images
for you & your family to cherish for decades.

You’re welcome to book a complimentary planning & design consultation so that I can assist you in selecting the perfect sizes and materials to display and preserve your family's special milestones. Contact me today to begin planning your session!

I'm Marianne

ARE JUST A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

Lemonade, hand lettering, & shiny objects

tell me more

My name is Marianne Bley.
Some refer to me as a Professional Wedding Crasher, others The Baby Whisperer.

I have been building relationships and delivering spectacular wedding experiences to couples for the last 13 years. I have photographed over 350 weddings and have an extensive list of testimonials across the web.

5 years ago, I took the leap into specializing in newborns as well. I have spent this time working side by side with doctors and nurses in my local hospitals, as well as, taking private training lessons with various newborn specialists and leaders in the newborn photography industry to learn everything I can about these beautiful little people. Since then, I have photographed over 3,500 babies!


My work doesn't stop there, I assist clients in designing stunning displays to grace the walls of their home and/or business. By utilizing your personal style and color palette when planning your session, I am able to create displays that fit seamlessly into your  current home decor. 

Whether you are looking to show off that new flashy engagement ring, celebrate the growth of your family or a milestone, I am your girl!

Hey!

I invite you to continue to explore my site and if my work speaks to you, I would love for you to contact me to discuss a custom portrait experience for your family.

“Photography is a way of feeling,
of touching, of loving.
What you have caught on film is captured forever…
it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
