The Studio

Welcome to my home studio! If you are booking an in-person consultation or a studio session,
you will be traveling to my home studio (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, TV, etc...); I believe it also provides an unparalleled level of trust to those that may not know me personally prior to our session.

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 stranger can be a little unsettling. Rest assured that I am thoroughly trained and certified to be providing tips and tricks for preparing baby for the session and handling your little one safely throughout the session.

My calendar does fill up quite quickly. Expecting clients should reserve their place in my calendar as early as possible before the baby is born to ensure there is room on my calendar. It's is never too early to book in order to ensure a spot during the recommended time frame. I typically book 2-3 months in advance.

My custom maternity & newborn photography sessions are all about the experience.
Clients will receive access to my client portal with all of the information on what to expect, what to pack, what to wear, etc. Clients will also complete a questionnaire where props and colors can be chosen prior to your session so that your photo session sets can be designed and ready when your little one arrives.

Newborns sessions are most successful when performed during the first three weeks of life . However, I do offer newborn sessions up to eight weeks of life. 

MOST SOUGHT-AFTER newborn photography photo studio in NJ

I am honored to capture the first special memories of your precious baby. Newborn photo sessions are offered at my beautiful New Jersey studio, or in the comfort of your home. Studio newborn sessions take place at my home studio located in Chadwick Beach/Lavallette (part of Toms River), NJ 08735 on select days at 10:00am. I love to create images that are natural & timeless by photographing newborns & their families in a combination of neutrals & soft tones so that your baby is the primary focus of the image. All outfits, blankets and props are provided to ensure that your final images are consistent with my warm, natural and rustic chic photographic style. Maternity clients , as well as, new mothers may have access my maternity gown collection for their photos. 

Each collection offers a print credit that can be applied to the purchase of heirloom products.
The credit is valid for 30 days from proof gallery delivery.
I offer a large variety of unique items including: prints, canvases, heirloom albums, accordion books, custom wall designs. and more. Clients are not required to purchase products; however, on average my clients tend to invest between $250-$1,500 on beautifully crafted heirloom products. 
All clients are offered a complimentary planning and design appointment once their proofs are ready for review.
We will discuss in detail what you envision your final images looking like & we will work together
to achieve the images you imagine hanging in & around your home. 

SCHEDULING YOUR
newborn photography SESSION

meet Marianne

Some refer to me as a Professional Wedding Crasher, others The Baby Whisperer.

I have been building relationships and delivering spectacular wedding experiences to engaged couples for the last 12 years. I have photographed over 150 weddings and have an extensive list of testimonials across the web. Go ahead and Google me :)

3 years ago, I decided that I wanted to specialize in newborns as well. I have spent the last 3 years working side by side with doctors and nurses in my local hospitals, as well as, taking private training lessons with other newborn specialists to learn everything I could about these beautiful little people.

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

ARE JUST A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

Lemonade, hand lettering, & shiney objects

Why Choose me?

EXPERIENCE

I have photographed over 2,000 babies! 
I have worked side by side with doctors, nurses and lactation consultants for the last 3 years inside and outside of my local hospitals. 
I am continuously taking newborn safety training to care for your little ones while they are in my hands. With my expertise in artful lighting and editing, I am dedicated to producing beautifully styled images and heirloom artwork to preserve this precious time in your family’s life.

PRIVATE STUDIO

Clients love that I have a private studio on the first floor of my home. This means there are no interruptions during your session and you can make yourself right at home. I offer light snacks and drinks and a place to sit back and relax while your baby is being photographed.

TIMELESS STYLE

My photographic style is warm, natural and rustic chic. I prefer to use neutral, soft colors and earth tones when styling your session. I often incorporate unique vintage and antique props like baskets and crates that I have hand selected from around the globe. These elements allow the focus of the photos to be on the simple and natural beauty of your new baby. 

PERSONALIZED 

Prior to your session, clients have the opportunity to provide set-up, color and pose preferences via an online questionnaire and (optional) phone consultation. I love to work with my clients when styling their newborn sessions using their favorite colors and poses.
