New Jersey Newborn Photography Specialist

Happy New Year to all of my loyal subscribers!

I have been so anxious to share this first newborn gallery of 2020 because not only was this baby just fantastic and gorgeous, I photographed Mom and Dad’s wedding several years ago!

Since then, I have spent over 3 years learning alongside Dr’s and nurses in my local community all there is to know about newborns & safely posing them for professional photography.

When Mom reached out early in her pregnancy, I started my own countdown to meeting this sweet little girl. They actually booked me so early on, they did not know the gender yet so I had a lot of fun anticipating their gender reveal.

Being able to follow their journey into marriage and now parenthood is a truly special bond that I will cherish forever. Parenthood is really such a scary and amazing gift. We are always scared of the unknown but there is nothing more satisfying than snuggling with your little babe.

Being able to discuss everything from labor and delivery to breastfeeding and functioning half asleep is a breathe of fresh air; knowing that all parents can relate to the struggles of having a new member of the family and the common adjustments that we all have to make creates a very relaxed atmosphere.

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!
