it's lovely to meet you <3
i am a new jersey born + raised in-home lifestyle newborn photographer and educator. i specialize in natural light and i have a knack for showcasing your beautiful family without the use of props. i'm here for the emotion, the love, and of course those tiny toes. i am very into making people laugh, so my sessions tend to be breezy and fun (even for difficult partners who maybe aren't into getting their photos taken). i love plants, animals, babies, thrifting, looking at the sky, spooky stuff, cheap coffee, and music.
thanks for considering letting me into your home to hang out and take pics of your family and sweet new baby, i hope to hear from you!
kind words from kind folks
“Elyse did such an amazing job capturing our baby boy and this moment in time! She has a great energy and made the session fun, laid back and easy right in our home. The pictures came out BEAUTIFUL, she is so talented I don't think there is one we didn't like. We had wanted a natural feel as opposed to structured newborn photos and Elyse does that perfectly. Highly recommend, don't hesitate, just book her today!”
“I cannot recommend Elyse enough. She captured beautiful photos of my family. Not only is she a very talented photographer, she is truly a baby whisperer. My newborn was so relaxed and slept peacefully throughout the shoot. I am a shy person and hate taking photos of myself. However, Elyse has a welcoming and warm personality that made the session painless and fun! I was also nervous to have a stranger come to my house, she took all the precautions to keep my family, and most importantly my newborn, safe.”
“Absolutely amazing. Elyse was very kind, professional and fun to work with! It was so easy, not stressful at all, and she knew exactly how to soothe our baby, how to position her, etc. TRULY a professional in newborn photography. When we received the photos, I was so in love... she captured our daughter so well, I am so happy with the results. You will not be disappointed with her and we plan to use her services again for our next baby.”
