All of our clients are very special to us. But one in particular, is our movie star.
Monica, our fabulous over fifty, is someone we always refer to as our movie star. It’s not just about her timeless glamorous looks that look straight out of a film noir. It’s also about the story of a woman who began to transform her life on the day we met her. Monica’s story is what beautiful, tear-jerking movie scripts are made of.
Each of our sessions begins way before the actual session, sometimes months before in the pre consultation call. During that call, Monica shared her story (in her most beautiful Argentine accent, I might add).
As a mother, Monica had suffered a tragic, unthinkable loss in the days before her son’s birthday. After years of bereavement, she had an awakening and wanted to make a change in her life. She believed that seeing herself in a beautiful light would help her rediscover herself as the beautiful woman; a woman who had been steeped in the darkness of mourning for so long. Monica contacted us in the hope that doing a photo session could be the very first step as she began her new life. We of course were honored to commit to that goal and to help begin the journey with her.
On the day of the shoot, Monica sat in the makeup chair as Michelle helped her transform into the epic beauty of the old Hollywood era.
Before the shoot began, we raised our champagne glasses and made a toast to her late son. “To new beginnings,” we said, and we raised our glasses up to heaven. Michelle and I could barely fight the tears.
Our session was one of joy, laughter and rediscovery. Her positive energy, gorgeous worldliness and outward joy were infectious.
And all while all our clients are special to us, Monica will always be set apart in our hearts and minds. She’s our movie star.
There’s always something special going on at the Je Revele Castle.
“I had an amazing time and I am a little sad it’s over to be honest. I would do it over and over again if I could. You made me feel so comfortable and beautiful. I actually felt like a model which was really cool and kind of a dream come true.”
Boudoir photography can mean many things to many people. Meredith’s session, was a bit high fashion and glamorous with a splash of boudoir. Cate and I refer to these sessions at Intimate Portraits.
Our sessions are all about our clients — experiencing art-in-the-making. When we talk to our clients, we ask them to imagine stepping inside a painting. Your portrait will be not just be revered for your beauty; but also, for the exquisite gifts you brings to the world.
Not every session will be high fashion, some clients love the 1920’s and 30’s. Each client is so unique and we try to plan something special, something they’ll never forget.
I loved Meredith the moment we met. Her spirit and energy was contagious. She’s one of those bright lights that makes you smile and brightens up a room. She was a little shy at first, but you’d never know it seeing these beautiful pictures below. This was one of my favorite sessions in October.
Meredith had so many sides to her… fierce, tender, and loving were just a few that I captured.
This girl is absolutely gorgeous! My guess is that she’ll be deciding upon 5 marriage proposals by years end!
Meredith told me she felt like a model, and boy did she look like one. She is a natural beauty!!
Wish we could post a hundred more photos of this beautiful woman… if you’re interested in planning a boudoir or intimate portrait session call us at the studio anytime (732) 964-3773.

As a child growing up, I loved celebrations, family events and parties and have so many albums filled with memories of my family. I have few photos with my grandparents and even fewer photos with my dad who passed when I was just ten years old. Family is so important to me, to Catie as well…
My gorgeous client Carla asked me to photograph her grandmother last year on her 100th birthday. It was such an honor to meet this lovely, talented and strong women born on April 5, 1911. I can’t imagine what life was like living through the great depression or a world war, but her spirit and energy were contagious. Her love for her family, her granddaughter Carla and her namesake great-grandson was overwhelming. Nani had 4 children, eight grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren. Nani passed away just two short months later, but the photos we took are ones that Carla cherishes.
The Staten Island Advance celebrated for Nani’s 100th birthday as well here: http://blog.silive.com/inside_out_column/2011/04/nani_vincenza_vitali_celebrates_her_100th_birthday.html
