I have been celebrating milestones, and the moments in between, with families in and around New York City for almost 20 years! 

A mom to two teenagers, I know first hand that life happens way too fast. While we are thrilled with each and every new adventure and achievement, wouldn't it be nice to freeze time and hold onto some of the ages and stages just a little bit longer? 

That's where I come in! Sit back, relax and let me tell your story. Together we will create images that will fill your home and your heart with seasons of love.

I look forward to meeting you!

I met my husband on a blind date - a quarter of a century ago!
My daughter is a freshman at the University of Michigan - Go Blue!
My fifteen year old son keeps me on my toes.
Yes! Our ten year old Goldendoodle was named after Miley Cyrus.
Because we take so many, we have family selfie positions. 
I am proud to say I am from Staten Island.
I still have a crush on Jon Bon Jovi.
Beware! I randomly break into show tunes.
I am a Jets fan living in a Giants world.
I will miss Olivia Pope but not nearly as much as I miss Jed Bartlett.
I can recite every word of the movie Almost Famous.
Nutella is my kryptonite. I cannot even have it in my apartment.
My biggest pet peeve is when people spell the word stationery wrong.
If you've spoken with Eve, you know she runs the show.
The best advice I ever got from a friend:

Jennifer has been taking pictures of my children for the past 14 years. She gets the perfect shots every time. It is always easy and fun working with her. Jennifer HAs always been able to get all FOur of my children to look great, no matter their age. They actually look forward to, and enjoy, THE annual SESSIONS!

I would give anything to have Jennifer's talent! She not only takes stunningly beautiful photos of my young children, but she also totally captures their personalities. The photo shoots are so fun, easy and natural - and Jennifer even knows just what to do if your baby starts to cry! it is also so exciting and fun to sit with her to look at her incredible work and select your photos!

FROM NEWBORNS TO NOW, I'M SO GRATEFUL TO HAVE MY HOME FILLED WITH MEMORIES THAT MEAN SO MUCH TO OUR FAMILY. IF ANYONE IS EVER LOOKING FOR A PHOTOGRAPHER FOR THEIR FAMILY AND KIDS OF ANY AGE, THEY SHOULD RUN AS FAST AS THEY CAN TO JENNIFER! SHE IS AMAZING.

Marni

Not every stage of life is pretty but with Jennifer we have the most beautiful moments of each and every one. She has a relaxing manner that brings out the most beautiful you, even when the kids are pulling each others hair out.

Emily

If I could hit rewind, I would have met Jennifer before my kids were born. then I would have an entire lifetime of beautiful memories instead of just one decade. She captures the beauty, love, energy and mood of everyone she turns her lens towards whether in the chaos of an event or at a posed shoot.
