I could bore you by sharing my favorite foods (Italian), my favorite flavor of ice cream (mint chocolate chip), and describing my dream vacation (which would be a trip to Hawaii for a month with the hubby), but like I said, that would be boring.

Collingswood NJ Family Photographer

Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2015  |  Families
Photographs preserve our memories, our history, our family & friends. They are passed on to our children and, like fine wine, will be cherished more with age. They can bring tears to our eyes and smiles to our faces. Our lives are captured in these images.  
Choosing the right family photographer is a very daunting task. Just performing an internet search on "Family Photographer" or "Newborn Photographer" for your area and can be difficult. There are going to be hundreds of options.You've probably have even seen a studio located on a main street in your town, or seen friends on Facebook tagged or blogged by their professional photographer in their own family sessions. And finally, there is no end in sight to the number of friends and family who say they have a "great eye" and decided to pick up a camera and call themselves a photographer. So then the question is where do you begin in choosing a photographer? 
Consider the following tips on selecting and working with a photographer for your family's portrait needs: 
Interview several photographers. They should be willing to take the time to listen to what you want and ask questions about you and/or your family. A photographer needs this information to create images that tell the story of who you are, or who you would like to be. Keep in mind that you are not hiring someone to simply take a picture, but to tell your story. 
Ask about style. Do you like photo journalistic images? Or is your style more classical, whimsical or romantic? Let the photographer know what you have in mind, and ask if he or she has experience in that area. You want them to use the style that best captures your personality. 
Look at samples. Ask to see some of the photographer's work. This will give you an idea of both the style and quality each photographer provides. 
Communicate. Make sure the photographer has a clear understanding of your expectations. Take the time to discuss the services and fees involved. This helps avoid any future misunderstandings. 
Ask about credentials. Membership in a professional association, certification or a photography degree shows a certain level of commitment to the profession. These types of credentials can help you determine which photographer is right for you. 
Check references. A friend's recommendation, the Better Business Bureau and professional associations are excellent sources of information. 
Once you've hired a photographer, he or she should take the time to talk to you about your family and their favorite activities, as well as offer suggestions on location and coordinating clothing and colors. The photographer will use this information to create a photograph that tells your family's unique story.

Why I want to photograph you and your family

Tuesday, Sep. 15, 2015  |  Families
Having children have to be the best thing that has ever happened to me in life. I love all of my kids, but having my second child with health issues made me look at life so differently. I always loved photos but never to extent that I currently do.  
Because of not being about to be with my daughter for more then two weeks of her life I missed a lot of things. For the 1st month of her life her father had to do so much for her. I have made up for it since believe me! - I couldn't feed her myself, something I regretted for a very long time. Once I came home I could only hold her for a short time. I couldn't have to many visitors because I needed to heal and needed a germ free home.  
But as a result we also gained a unique sense of perspective. 
We didn't worry about the little things any more. We saw very clearly that there were things that truly mattered and things that didn't. 
Now, you might be wondering what all of this has to do with my wanting to photograph your family. 
Well! I saw, all too clearly, how quickly things can change. Children are only children for such a short time. We never know when we will leave there side. They grow so fast and all too soon the only record of how small they were is our memories and photos. 
Somehow I'm now the mother of a eighteen year old, fourteen year old teen and a eight and a half year old. How did that happen? When? They were so small not so long ago! Now my daughter is in college and talking about the life she wants to build.  
For a long time I couldn't look at the photos I took of Julia and I in the hospital. I would look at them and cry because I wasn't able to be the mother that I wanted to be to her. To be able to see all these other mothers sharing in the joyous occasion. At the time I didn't know if they'd be the only photos my daughter would have of me.  
This beautiful new camera that my husband got me was suppose to capture adorable shots of our new life with two little girls. Yes, the photos had a lot of medical machinery in the background,but that didn't change the fact that they were photos of this journey we were beginning together. This inspires me even to this day.  
And that is why I want to photograph your family. To capture the smiles and the personalities, the laughter and the memories so you can keep them forever. One day they'll mean even more than you realize.  
So Day they will be all your child has to remember us by. They will never look at that image and say "wow my mother was a size 12" Instead they will remember the memories and love you shared with them.  
So Give my New Jersey Studio a call. I will be more then happy to photography your family.

Fall Mini Photo Session

Monday, Sep. 7, 2015  |  News
Fall IS HERE! IT'S one of my favorite time of the year... Fall Mini-session Days! Get your family together and join us on one of these upcoming dates.  
This year I will have 2 days available. Both will have a nature setting so we can take advantage of the beautiful New Jersey October.  
Saturday, October 3rd (LATE AFTERNOON)  

Sunday, October 4th (LATE AFTERNOON) 
PS. Refer 3 friends who book a mini (deposit paid for) & get yours for FREE! 
What is a mini session? 
A mini session is a scaled down portrait session, typically themed, that lasts about 30 minutes. These sessions are perfect to get updated photos for end of the year cards gifts for family & grandparents, etc. Since the shooting time is much less than your average portrait session, the sessions are discounted and bundled with some products providing a fabulous savings! 
Who are they for? 
Families, children, and couples. Up to 6 people (immediate family members) are included in the fee - additional family members are $25 each. (Newborn, maternity and senior photos are excluded from mini sessions) 
Where will they be held? 
The sessions will be held at a beautiful location within 15 minutes of Cherry Hill NJ 
What do I get? 
Your session fee includes a 30 minute session, 10 digital files of your choice with printing rights. Print packages also available. 
What do I wear?  
Anything that makes you and your family feel comfortable! I always suggest picking a color palette and building off of that. Some colors I think look great with fall colors are browns, blues, tans, etc. No need for everyone to wear the same color, feel free to mix it up! Please avoid overly busy patterns as they distract from the images. Also, please keep an eye on the weather and dress accordingly.  
How do I book? 
You can book your session by emailing amy@sajephotography.com. All sessions are booked on a first come, first serve basis. Session fee is due at the time of booking.
