NJ Newborn Photographer | Twin Newborn Photos | Welcome to the world Sebastian and Isabella

September 26, 2013 /

NJ Newborn Photographer | Twin Newborn Photos

This morning I had a moment of epiphany.  Amazement.  Awe.  As we welcomed twins Sebastian and Isabella to our studio.

We had a shoot scheduled for a couple, Heriberto and Fausto and their three-week old twins.  When we spoke to them prior to the shoot, we learned of their amazing story. Heriberto and Fausto, whom are very much in  love, decided to extend their love for each other and build a family.  The men located an egg donor whom was impregnated with two embryos, each carrying the sperm of one of the men.  So she was pregnant with their twins, and carried them to term. Now I find this gorgeous couple sit before me, each with their beloved son and daughter nestled in their arms.

Just seeing this couple sitting on the sofa, preparing for the session, I was struck by their dedication- to each other and to their children.  Each held a tiny wriggly infant, and each doted on his daughter or son with the intensity of a new parent.  If there was ever a time for stereotypes to be broken right before me, this was it.  Heriberto and Fausto each emanated a bond with their children that most of us see primarily demonstrated by a mother.

It was interesting for me to see this dynamic without a woman present.  Then I realized what I had not until now.  These men were truly everything to these precious babies. 

Both mother and father. 

Beginning and End. 

To have and to hold.

Isn’t that what love is?  Does a baby have to look only into the eyes of a woman to feel like it’s secure, loved, nurtured? Can a man provide what a woman so traditionally has, according to biology?  Spend a moment in my shoes this morning and you’d realize the answer is clearly no.  Love is what matters.  It doesn’t matter the giver’s gender, affiliation, skin color, or age.  Waist lines are not measured here.  Tradition doesn’t dictate what love has to look like. 

I couldn’t help but feel grateful for the time I spent getting to know this couple.  Such fortunate babies!  As the morning extended through lunch into the afternoon I captured the most precious moments between parents and children as my heart swelled with pride.  The best things in life are so uncomplicated.  When the heart speaks, follow it’s pulse.

We should all love each other…without definition or restraint.

Here are some of my favorite portraits of this beautiful family.

As if these beautiful babies couldn’t get any cuter, look at their beautiful

The best part about meeting this beautiful family is watching them grow as we document Sebastian and Isabella’s first  year (and hopefully 2nd and 3rd year and 4th year hehe)

Je Revele Photographers | World Renowned Jessica Crespo

September 5, 2013 /

A One-One Interview with Jessica Crespo,

Photographer Extraordinaire at Je Revele


When you look through the lens of your camera, is what you see different than what one might see from normal view?

While I feel like I can identify with most of my clients, I connect often with women who are mothers and wives.  I can really relate to them.  Sometimes when you become a wife or a mother you feel like you have become someone else- not the cute self you used to be.  Being the subject of a photo shoot allows a woman to reclaim herself in a way she may have forgotten who she was and is.

If you could go back and change something related to your education or your life as a student what would you change or what would you do differently?

I think the biggest evolution for me has been that I have transformed from  a shy, “little mouse” conservative person into an edgy outgoing, more self-confident and self assured person.

What kind of photography do you do? Do you enjoy it? Why or why not?

I enjoy doing weddings and boudoir photography.  I feel as though I have developed a “super power”  of empathy and intuition.  Having experienced these themes in my own life, my intuition is keenly on-point.  I feel a strong connection to my clients during these shoots.

What are the pros and cons of being a photographer? Please be specific.

Being a photographer is very empowering.  I have the opportunity to bring so much joy to people.   I love being an entrepreneur and taking control of my own destiny.  I get to meet lots of interesting people and see wonderful aspects of life. If there are cons, I suppose it’s what people do not realize.   Photography isn’t only glamorous.  There is a lot of editing, billing and paperwork involved.

If you weren’t a photographer, what would you want to be? Why?

I used to think I wanted to be a teacher or a lawyer. Now I know I’d love to be a travel blogger!  I’d be able to travel the world, enjoy the cultures and wines of each region and capture my experiences in photographs and in words.

What would you say is most important: good knowledge or good equipment? 

It’s not the camera that takes the photograph.  Capturing a look requires more than just technique. I like to think that I take photos with my heart.

If you could work alongside of any photographer, who would it be?

I feel privileged to work with Natalie Licini, owner and head photographer at Je Revele.  She is a fabulous mentor, full of humility, kindness and patience.  And she has a sharp eye!

I also follow and admire the work of Jerry Ghionis, a renowned photographer, based out of Australia.  He is known as one of the top 5 wedding photographers in the world.   His work is an inspiration to me.

What genre of photography do you least like and why?

I am not a  big fan of traditionally posed photographs.  For me, it’s like painting.  A creative artist enjoys picking up a brush and allowing the brush to be a tool on the canvas.  What results, hopefully, is a unique expression.  Such a painter would not enjoy the kind of painting one dies when painting a room in a house.  Although that kind of painting requires skill and precision, it leaves little room for creativity on the part of the painter.  That’s a bit what it’s like for me.  Merely positioning people for a traditional, stiff portrait pose does not always allow room for the artistic signature of the photographer.  I like to capture each person’s personality, which is often seen through movements and mannerisms, not in sitting still like a statue.

August 17, 2013 /

This past week, we’ve received a surge of calls asking about men’s portraits in New Jersey popularly called dudeoir.  This is not exactly a trend as some may think, although the term is relatively new to many.

The artists at Je Revele desired to create a new experience for men to take center stage and become the object of everyone’s admiration. As always, we set out to devise something truly unique and memorable.  The Je Revele Adonis Experience: a fabulously masculine session which includes wardrobe selection, grooming and a complete stylish and sophisticated photo shoot, set against the backdrop of a historic, stonewall castle. We are so excited to offer a truly customized photographic opportunity in one of the few studios that offer fine art men’s portraits in New York City and the Metropolitan area.

Men have Stunning Bone Structure.  Piercing Eyes.  Sexy Smile.  Chiseled muscles. These are only some of the qualities you will surely notice when you check out our new genre of portraiture:  Men.  See for yourself.

With our recent surge of calls asking about dudeoir photos in NYC or in our New Jersey studio, our client’s are planning sessions for their loved ones.  Whether its a wedding gift for their wife or their husband, or an anniversary or Christmas gift, some of our clients are simply planning these sessions for themselves to celebrate a milestone or new chapter in their life.  These award winning fine art photographers recently received accolades for their men’s portraits here:

Are you considering a gift for a loved one? for yourself?  Here’s some helpful info… but as always, call our studio.  Natalie & Jess can answer any questions you may have.

What to Expect:

Chauffeur transportation: Start your one of a kind experience with optional chauffeur transportation for you and your loved one.

Grooming: If you’d like to feel pampered, add hair and subtle photo-ready make-up to your portrait experience! We have talented in house stylists available by appointment. Just let us know during your booking, and we will make all the arrangements.

Gourmet dinner at the castle: How do you conclude such a spectacular day? Consider having our chef plan a luxury dining experience at the castle with dinner served on our terrace.

Selecting Your Portraits:  Return to the castle to select your favorite portraits, another memorable and exciting experience.

If you desire to make your mark and redefine old traditions and definitions, the Je Revele Adonis Experience is for you!  The experience alone is exciting, liberating, and unforgettable, but even when the day is done, it all continues in choosing which divine images to print and having those gifts to treasure forever.

Pregnancy Photos New Jersey | Maternity Photos | Je Revele Studio

August 15, 2013 /

Expecting What Will Be

Pregnancy, as many have described, is a magical time.  It is a time in life when hope and dreams lie in wait and new possibilities are imagined.  To be able to look forward to an event so important, realizing that much of what will happen is yet to be determined.  So exciting!  I connect pregnancy to many themes in life; not just the gestational period before birth.  When something is up and coming, a next step in life ready for foothold, a vision prepared for action, a dream ready to be birthed.  Once it arrives, nothing is ever the same.

For these reasons, some of my favorite sessions are maternity shoots.  Tatiana, our maternal beauty queen, wanted to capture this special time in her life and share the experience with her new family.  Her family includes a vibrant red-headed 6 year old stepdaughter.  Witnessing the variety of skin tones, hair colors and body sizes in this family gathered together is such a wonderful example of the great diversity of our country.  Each member of this family is expectant.  Looking forward to a new baby, a new life together, and for one little soul- a new baby sibling! I began to wish that everyone could see this marvelous moment.  Thankfully, the essence of this time has been captured in print.


What are you expecting for yourself?  What new life event lies on your horizon? It’s coming…
