New Jersey Newborn Photos:  Baby Photography Ideas & Suggestions

We have New Jersey Newborn Photos and Ideas with a range of styles for expecting parents.

If you’re pregnant or planning to start a family, you may be thinking of baby photography ideas for your little one.  It’s one of the first questions our clients ask when they call.  Every family is so different. Some of our clients like:

  1. babies sleeping soundly, curled up with hands and feet ever so sweet
  2. babies photos in timeless newborn props, bowls and handmade outfits
  3. candid portraits with mom, dad, grandparents and siblings nuzzling the baby

Here are some beautiful ideas for your newborn shoot including  sleeping baby photos, newborns in props and photojournalistic portraits.

NJ Newborn Photos:  Behind the scenes of a Newborn Shoot

Are you considering taking NJ Newborn Photos of your little one on the way?

If this is your first baby (or fifth) and you are looking for baby photography ideas, here’s a helpful behind the scenes video of a newborn photo session with New Jersey based photographer Natalie of Je Revele.  This video is courtesy of FYI Philly with Alicia Vitarelli and her beautiful family.  We filmed this in Alicia’s Philadelphia home early this year.

Watching this video, you’ll see and hear some answers to popular questions our new moms ask all the time.

Some of our clients ask:

“How long is a typical newborn session?”  

We reserve four hours for all newborn sessions, to allow babies to fall asleep comfortably.  With our very relaxed pace, we only photograph for an hour or two of that time, and our priority is keeping our babies cozy, clean and well fed.

“My baby isn’t sleeping well.  How can we get those adorable sleeping baby photos?” As a mother of three very different children ages 13 months, 4 and 6 years old, I realize every baby may need different soothing techniques.  Whether its feeding, burping, rocking or swaddling these beautiful babies, using a white noise machine in a warm home, we are experts in comforting your little ones.  Last year we photographed 4 sets of twins.  You’d think it would be impossible to get these littles ones to sleep at the same time, but it happened every time. Thankfully! If you’re consider taking NJ Newborn photos – or have questions, call us anytime.

If you’re expecting your first baby, give us a call to reserve two potential photo dates for your NJ Newborn photos.  It’s ideal to photograph little ones under ten days old.  We recommend setting one date 5 days after your due date and the second date about 7-10 days after you due date.   If you’re looking for the best newborn photographer in NJ for your family, give us a call anytime and we’d be happy to invite you to our studio to give you a tour of our newborn props and blankets and much more.

NEW JERSEY & NEW YORK MATERNITY PORTRAITS in Highland Park

New Jersey & New York maternity portraits:  Reflecting on the gorgeous maternity photo shoot in Highland Park we had with the lovely Lisa, I felt inspired to think of the typical maternity experience and what it brings out for so many mothers to be. Thank you Lisa, for displaying the deepest of all truths. When we give birth to another, we find ourselves reborn.  We hope you’ll consider a New Jersey & New York Maternity Portraits shoot with us.

A Letter to My Expectant Self

Dear Maternal Me,

Hello Gorgeous.

You are blossoming with hope, wonder and awe. Literally full of love. Bursting at the seams!

People look at you and say they see a glow. You can actually feel it, warming up your thoughts as you dream all day and night.

Others glance at your body and you know your growing girth is no reason for shame, but instead but of great admiration.

You are more beautiful than you have ever been.

You many have never felt this way or even slept as soundly, or fretfully, as you do now.

This child is teaching you that your body is a sacred home, defying definition by size or flaw.

This time has brought you back to yourself. As you plan for and dream for your new baby, you are redefining what your own dreams are for yourself.

You are learning patience and trust, recognizing that all wonderful things come in time.

The love you already feel for this unborn child is a birthright we all have.

There was once a time, when you too, were waited for, with pride and hope. That was a time the whole world, as much as you knew of it, celebrated every aspect of your being, no matter how it sounded, (or smelled!).

You once were cradled. Protected. Engulfed in love.

And now here you are again, from the other point of view. Full circle.

You’re discovering that your heart is able to expand far greater than you thought possible.

Waiting, at this precipice, you demonstrate a simple grace. This is the most YOU that you have ever been.

All in the anticipation of a child. Your child. Yourself. You.

With Love,

Radiantly Reflecting Me 🙂

Farewell to 2013 | New Jersey Photographers Je Revele

December 31, 2013 /

“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he’s always doing both. ” James A. Michener

 

New Vision

It all started with a dream in 2008.  Je Revele originally Natalie Licini Photography was once merely an aspiration, birthed in the mind of a focused businesswoman whom envisioned the idea of combining photography with fine art.

As artists, we have found that one of the secrets to success is discovered when taking time to reflect upon progress made and then setting goals for what is to come.  And in our studio at Je Revele, we proudly do this with our clients during every photo session.  We help clients realize their greatest aspects, traits and strengths so they can be visualized in timeless works of art to be admired by future generations.

We’re not huge fans of typical New Year’s Resolutions, instead, we create action plans based on specific goals allowing us to see our plans through to completion.

To begin the process, I like to think about the different things that have happened in the previous year as well as in the years prior leading up until this point. It’s important to reflect on both the good things that happened and things that weren’t so wonderful. For the latter, rather than dwell on them, we take note of anything we learned or ways we could achieve a better outcome in the future.

Most importantly, we believe we should celebrate our successes. We have learned that such positive vibes set an energy, which attracts more success.

Some favorite highlights from our sessions in 2013 relate to the following areas.

 

New Genres of Photography 

Over the course of 2013, we are so pleased to share that we conducted over 200 photo shoots.  60% of these shoots were boudoir/beauty shoots.  We fondly refer to boudoir and beauty shoots as intimate portraits, which has proven to be, year after year, our most popular genre. Our newborn/maternity sessions continue to grow year after year. We had the great privilege of photographing FOUR sets of twins at our Highland Park studio.

We also expanded our genre repertoire.  Je Revele launched a whole new category of men’s portraiture in the summer of 2013. Several of the photographs seen on the website won awards at WPPI later in 2013.

We also, upon the requests from some of our clients, launched the pet-ography genre, which animal lovers will find to be delightful focusing on our furry little friends.

With cameras in hand, we excitedly photographed famous singers, a basketball star and a news anchorwoman this year.  “Talk about being nervous – ahh” ~Natalie

We are always so grateful to clients for traveling from near and far to be photographed by us.  But we felt so honored when clients flew from Dubai/France and California to be photographed at the castle.

 

New Renovations

Our Highland Park studio has undergone a transformation over the past year. The castle was the former home of the Johnson and Johnson family and as you can imagine, required the skill and expertise of someone meticulous who could transform my space yet maintain the old world charm.   Under the direction of our talented interior designer Rose Abby, gorgeous wall paper, custom drapery, chandeliers, crown moldings, wardrobe, a fireplace in our viewing room was installed…and that’s just for starters. Now it really is a fairy tale modern studio set in a historic castle.

 

New Videography

In 2013, Je Revele has released its second commercial.  This newest installment, filmed on location, can be found on the Je Revele website or by clicking here:

New Professional Development

Natalie second-shot a wedding with her mentor Bambi Cantrell.  She is still gushing over this honor!

Natalie taught a photography course for gifted students at Middlesex County during the early part of the spring.  She also co-presented a workshop with world-renowned photographer Nik Pekridis.  Pekridis soon after joined Je Revele to lead our Wedding team in our NYC studio.

Team Je Revele embarked on a weekend getaway to The Lodge at Woodloch for an office retreat. It was a surreal experience for each participant.

We truly celebrate our professional development knowing that training and personal development is paramount for our team’s successes.

 

 

New Studio!

An opportunity arose albeit a little earlier than we dreamed.  We acquired a second property in the Upper West side of Manhattan to serve as our second studio.  Je Revele has expanded to serve clients in NYC!

To help with the launch of the new studio, Natalie was able to utilize the talented resources of Zoe Richards, a British based photographer and entrepreneur.

 

New Staff

Je Revele proudly welcomed new additions to staff in 2013.

Jessica Crespo, Lead Photographer

Charity Fues, Director of Social Media

Cara Schwab, Director of Client Experience

Nik Pekridis, Lead Wedding Photographer

The uber talented Lara Saggese, Kristin McCandless, Hannah Ho and Tatiana Rodriquez also joined the team with Natalie and her right hand Michelle Ernest.

 

New Baby

At the start of Spring, Natalie gave birth to her 3rd child.  This time it was a boy!  Welcome to the world Luc Declan!

 

New Clients

We at Je Revele are so appreciative of all of the clients that we have met over the year and in years prior.  We look forward to meeting your future photographic needs.   We are committed to you, our communities, and our families.  Please keep us in mind if you’d like us to consider sponsoring your organization for special fundraisers in 2014.

 

New Year

As we embark on a new year, remember to reflect on all you have learned from last year.  Count your blessings. Learn from your mistakes.  We hope you will join us as we follow the advice of Howard Thurman, when he wrote,

Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

 

Here’s to a wonderful and lively 2014!

Charity Fues
