Chic Lifestyle Newborn Session Princeton, New Jersey

This chic lifestyle newborn session was photographed at the family home in Princeton, New Jersey.

The Meier’s are good friends of my husband and I. In November, they came to my studio for a holiday mini-session and I was told that they were expecting another baby! I was so excited that they mentioned wanting me to either come to their hospital room or their home after the baby was born for some family and newborn photos. 

Unfortunately, the timing did not work out for a hospital session as I was photographing a wedding but I did come to their home once they were settled and took some lifestyle images, as well as, some posed images of baby.

Daniela was 3 weeks old at the time of the session. That morning Mom said baby was very fussy and almost cancelled the session. I talked them into keeping their scheduled appointment because the baby is just going to get older and I didn’t want them to regret not having the photos at this time.

Afterward, Mom said she was so glad we didn’t reschedule as I was able to calm the baby in several instances and it made everyone more at ease.

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!
