Allaire Village Family Photo Session | Monmouth County NJ Family Photographer

Tim, Stephanie & Ella are back on the blog after their fall family photo session! This time, we did their family photo session at Allaire State Park / Allaire Village on August 25th of this year. Their daughter Ella has gotten so big, she was one of my very first newborns models and I have been watching her grow, along with my business!

The weather was perfect and the natural setting at Allaire was a gorgeous backdrop for their fall family pictures. I loved the scenery! Fall weather in NJ has a special place in my heart. I love the weather in the fall, the clothing options that we have and the beautiful colors of the trees at this time of year. Fall is by far the busiest time of year for my business because everyone wants to have their photos taken in this climate. If you are interesting in taking on location fall portraits, please contact me today for my availability.

Here are a few pictures from their family photo session at Allaire State Park with me.

    Loved pics from Allaire State Park wanted to get family photo for Christmas card. Seek picture for this purpose only, do not want invidual candids, 1 group shot only. Not sure if what I seek is below what your typical appointment is. To be honest usually to get this photo we work w a photography for 10-20 mins.
    Pls let me know if you can help and what the cost would be.

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 12 years. I have photographed over 300 weddings and have an extensive list of testimonials across the web.

4 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 3,000 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 their personal style and color palette when planning their session, I am able to create displays that fit seamlessly into their current home decor. 

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