New Jersey Family Photographer

first birthday cake smash

Cake smashes with me are anything but typical... they are a family affair! We start your session off with a normal family session flow (but slightly shortened and with extra photos of the birthday kid). Then we end with a cake smash. The birthday kid gets his/her chance to shine first before the whole family gets to join in.

If you are all about making amazing (and messy) memories with your kids, this session is for you. PS-- I know cake smashes are all the rage for one-year olds, but I am open to any-age birthday session ending with a smash!

Your NJ Family Photography

Do you find yourself constantly posting parenting memes about the days being long but the years being short? Do you want an exceptional client experience where the process is simple and seamless, and then a session filled with fun, laughter and adventure? If you answered yes to these questions, then look no further: I am your girl and you can trust me to take care everything from this point forward.

My Family Sessions are called Connection Sessions because they are all about your family interacting and playing together. This is NOT a session where you will be spending a lot of time looking at the camera and smiling. I will help with prompts and poses, but a lot of the time, I am just letting you be together while I am clicking away.

Are you ready to let me freeze time for you? Let's preserve your family's story for generations to come.


Let's get the ball rolling! Reach out and let me know the type of session you are looking for and bit about your vision. I am excited to learn everything about you and what makes your family special. 

We will find the best date and location to bring that vision of yours to life. My number one priority is for you to be thrilled with your NJ family photography session from start to finish-- that means from our first "meet" all the way to you sitting back and admiring your photos on the wall!

1. Say Hello

2. planning & styling your session

Once you are locked in for your session date, the fun really begins! I offer all of my clients access to my style guide as well as my membership to Style & Select, a shoppable style guide that helps you choose the perfect outfits for every member of your family-- and purchase items directly from the online stores. There is absolutely no need to stress about what you will be wearing!

I also send my clients a questionnaire that helps me to understand your vision and your family dynamics so that together, we can plan the absolute best family session.

I want you to know that I am here for you throughout this entire process. Right from the start, I offer to all of my clients to hop on a video call. I can explain my sessions, my style, my prices. You can show me the rooms in your home and ask me if I think there is enough light to do an indoor session (I am sure that there is!)

You can send me your outfit choices and ask for a second opinion. You can further explain tips and tricks to get your little one to smile. I am always here to answer any questions or discuss your session with you.

3. ask me Anything

I call my sessions "adventures" because I like to make everything fun. Your session day is here, woohoo! My job is to make everything feel easy. I want you to head home from our session together feeling confident that I captured amazing images of your family and that you had a great time. 

Kids will be playing and exploring. And of course, there will be lots of laughing-- regardless of anyone's age! 

4. let's go on an adventure!

We had our session together and now I know that you cannot WAIT to see your photos! Within one day, I will send you or post sneak peaks and within one week, I will send you your proofing gallery. There, you will choose your images, collection, and any upgrades.

Once you have made your choices and paid your final invoice, I will deliver your perfected gallery within one week and your products, shortly after. I always strive to get my clients their images as soon as possible because I know how excited you are to get them into your hands and homes.

Kristine was recommended by a friend after she had done their gender reveal and newborn shoot. Safe to say she did NOT disappoint when we booked her for our own newborn shoot with our daughter!

Kristine was not only super professional but also made us feel so comfortable. Our photos came out incredible! We loved them so much we decided to use her again for our fall family photoshoot. We have gotten so many compliments on how beautiful our photos are. 15/10 recommend! You will not be disappointed!

My husband and I had adopted our son without any notice (24 hours) and needed to get newborn/family photos booked asap. I’m so lucky that it was a slower time of year and Kristine was able to squeeze me in. Not only did she work us into her schedule with little notice, she drove down to my house an hour away during a snow storm…now that’s commitment! She was very patient with our son and was able to capture the perfect moments of our family. We were obsessed with all the photos and she really did capture all the best moments using just natural light. We couldn’t have been happier to work with this wonderful young lady. We plan on working with her on all future family photos now. If you're still looking, look no further as you won’t be disappointed.

Kristine was such a pleasure to work with so soon after the birth of our son. She made the newborn photoshoot experience so perfect and amazing. It was really helpful that she came to our house for the photoshoot, rather than us traveling with a newborn while we were still getting used to our bearings and adjusting to having a newborn. The turnaround in receiving the edits was also very quick - we were very impressed with how fast the whole process was and how quickly we had the final edits in our inbox/hands. The pictures were absolutely beautiful and we have received so many compliments!! Thank you so much for capturing such a beautiful time in our lives so perfectly! We also love the keepsake of the album that we received in our package. We highly recommend Kristine for any family photograph needs, we know we will definitely be reaching out to Kristine for our next family photoshoot. Thank you so very much Kristine 😊

Kristine was referred to me by a friend and she took maternity and newborn photos for us. She is very friendly and easy to work with, edits the pictures quickly, and our pictures are absolutely beautiful. We will definitely be using her in the future for more family photos! I would highly recommend.

Colleen & tom

I would highly recommend Kristine! My tough cookie husband‘s exact words were “wow these rival our wedding photos as the best photos we have from our 14 years together!” Kristine's work is such a gift to our family. She was able to capture our little guys’ light and smiles and the fun we have together as a family. Kristine has a wonderful eye for artistic angles and great light. She worked wonders with our high-energy toddler, and was accommodating, quick, and professional when we needed to reschedule due to illness & when we asked for a follow-up retouch to a photo. Five stars! Hope to use her again!

Kristine is super creative, accommodating, and a pleasure to work with. I was lucky to have been gifted a newborn shoot by my friend and I am so happy that I had the chance to work with Kristine. We wanted timeless family pictures with our newborn and she really captured the sweetest moments. She came all the way to our house, she brought everything that was needed for the shoot, and gave us some really useful tips to prepare ahead of time to help make the session a smooth experience, given a newborn schedule :) Highly recommended!

Maria & Dan

Where do I even begin! From start to finish Kristine was accommodating to our schedule, flexible, kind and made us feel so comfortable! Our session was filled with so many laughs and the pictures were amazing! We can’t wait to do another photo session with Kristine!! Highly recommend!!! Truly worth the investment and memories!

Kristine is amazing! I first met her at the Mother’s Day photo shoot and she took the most beautiful pictures of me and my little one despite us dealing with a cranky baby who had just woken up from a nap :D! I have the Mother’s Day pictures hanging all over my house and always get compliments from visitors saying they are so beautiful, natural and earthy. I recently took my maternity pictures with her and again the results were amazing. She really knows how to work the lens and capture some beautiful images full of love and light. I can’t wait until our newborn shoot in April. I highly recommend her for any of her shoots.
