Unique Ideas for New Jersey Sweet Sixteens | Je Revele by Natalie Licini

March 20, 2013 /


Turning sweet sixteen is not what it used to be. It’s still the first of life’s major milestones for American girls, but it’s become so much more than a right of passage. Many young girls approach their sweet sixteen celebration like they would a wedding, and while everyone loves a GREAT party, we wanted to create a new experience to give the next generation a fun and fresh way to celebrate in style.

As always, we set out to devise something truly unique and memorable. The result? The Je Revele Portrait Party: a fabulous fusion of pampering, partying, and hi-fashion photo shoot, set against the backdrop of a gorgeous castle. This is not your average photo session!

How does it work?

  • Customize your package options. Choose things like professional hair and makeup, designer wardrobes, a 5-star dinner at the castle, and even chauffeur transportation.
  • What’s your style?  Would you like to high-fashion photos, glamour or beauty portraits?      All of the above?
  • Have the birthday girl gather her closest friends for a day of relaxation, beauty, and celebration.
  • Allow our staff to indulge your party with complimentary refreshments and hors d’oeuvres.
  • Watch the girls live out their superstar fantasies as they strike their best poses for the camera. We’re open to different themes—creativity is welcome!
  • Leave feeling fabulously refreshed, with gorgeous images of the day to relive over and over again.
  • Relish in the success of sharing this amazing day with the birthday girl and her guests.

What’s the point of having our studio in a castle without playing dress-up and celebrating like The Royals? It’s fun for us to watch clients laugh and let loose with their closest friends.

The experience alone is exciting, liberating, and unforgettable, but even when the day is done, it all continues in choosing which incredible images to print and having that gift to treasure forever.

If you love making a mark and stepping up old traditions, this is for you. We still have a lot of love for traditional sweet 16 parties: many clients, including the one featured here, choose our Portrait Party as an addition to having us shoot their formal event.  And as a special bonus we offer a large 12×18 portrait of our birthday girl which can be displayed at her Sweet 16 party and in her home for many years (inquire about terms & details for this special offer).

Even then, we photograph new jersey sweet 16 parties with a modern twist. Check out the photos below for a glimpse of how we spice it up with imagery as energetic as the party itself.

Can you envision a day of decadence amongst friends? What kind of shoot would be your ideal? Share your thoughts with us below!
