Welcome! I am Amy Ortiz, a Cherry Hill, New Jersey Custom Photographer specializing in natural light and studio portraits for maternity, babies, newborns, children, teens and families. Here you will find my latest works of arts, contest information, news and more.
My love and passion is capturing special moments and memories that last a lifetime.
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. But if you really must know something about me, you should know that I value my Faith, Family and Photography. I think that I am fun to be around, and most importantly, I take wonderful portraits and can't wait to start creating some ART for you.
I am a photographer in South Jerse

"Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I'm going to take tomorrow. - Imogen Cunningham
The cutest New Jersey newborn baby girl came to our Cherry Hill studio! Ada was 8 days new when she came in for her newborn portraits. You might remember her mom because they had come in for maternity portraits a couple months prior. Ada had gorgeous dark hair and cheeks you just want to squeeze!
This beautiful family came into the studio with a beautiful Indian Shari that I fell in love with. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.. It was made for a princess!
2017 Has been a wonderful year for Saje Photography. Our Cherry Hill Studio has been working hard, but I must admit that I have been horrible on posting on my Blog. And per your request here it goes... Back at it.
As a New Jersey Mother Baby Photographer, I get to meet and photograph so many amazing women and there beautiful Newborn babies. I met this beauty mama to be a few years back when she was pregnant with her baby boy, and now I have the privileged to photograph her again with her princess baby girl coming any day now.
I must say Maternity photography is a special genre of portrait photography. There are moments that you witness that are so special. That is how I felt when I met maternity photography client, Tara and her beautiful family. Here are just a few images that amazed me during her maternity session.
And I must say her Maternity Milk Bath was so much fun and something I will always remember.
I can't tell you the memories I had as a child about playing dress up. I remember I use to think I was one of the Disney princesses. I think every little girl does. Weather it is the little girls playing dress up of a princess like this beauty here. Or a little boy acting out other Disney characters like Peter Pan or Pinocchio (which I have to say was a favorite of mine).
When this beauty was little I always wanted to recreate a mermaid. Maybe because of her beautiful red hair. So that is what we did we took the Disney little Mermaid and recreated it.
Meet Ariel... And her little Dinglehopper....
Thinking about creating Art with your Child. Weather it is Snow White for a 1 yr old cake smash session or another princess. Let Saje Photography help you capture that special moment.
I will never forget that day my beautiful baby sister texted me and said.. "I love those maternity photo shoots you do in the Milk Bath, do you think I would look great in a session like that?" It was 7 am in the morning mind you, and I had just woken up. I didn't understand the question so I picked up the phone and called her.. She repeated the question to me. I replied "Why would you want to wear a maternity dress for a milk bath photo?" I was puzzled...And just then it clicked... I am going to be an aunt... I should have said that my baby sister & her husband have been trying for years to have a baby and for years they thought it just couldn't happen. I am sure like many.. As soon as they decided to stop trying to get pregnant that is when it happened. I immediately started sobbing. I was so happy that my baby sister was soon going to become a mom. That she would be able to enjoy all the special moments that I was able to enjoy in life with three little girls. I think I cried for a whole 5 min.
The moment I know she was pregnant I knew I wanted to capture her pregnancy though the months.. She is now 6 months and there isn't a moment that I am not ready to pick up a camera and take a photo of her beautiful glowing belly so we can remember this moment forever. It doesn't hurt that she is stunning...
Boy do I wish I did this for myself when I was pregnant with my now 20,15,10 year old daughters. So I will live through her.. And the best part I will be an aunt of a little girl very soon.. I am the aunt of 3 handsome little boys but finally we get a girl in my family!
If I could say anything to all you moms out there that are pregnant and thinking of getting pictures of yourself.. YOU are Beautiful. It doesn't matter if you can or can not afford a photographer, pick up any camera and remember these moments.. This will be your one and only pregnancy with this child.. Remember everything about it, the good the bad and the in between. Even if you take those photos and you hide them under a pillow. Remember these moments because when your children are grown they will never remember you for being heavy or any other hang ups that us women put on ourselves. What they will remember are the moments. The Love that you guys shared. Children love us unconditionally. We need to make sure to remember that as women.
Thank you my beautifully amazing sister for allowing me to photograph you during this special moment, and I am not done.. Be sure to check back for more amazing images to come. This journey of pregnancy will be something you will never forget..

s a New Jersey family, newborn, senior and child photographer, the start of each year often leaves me a little more unorganized than I hoped. While I have grand ideas of how to make sure I am always "on top of it" and start off the next chapter organized and ready to go, most times I am still taking, editing, and delivering sessions so I find myself always finishing off things from the year prior. I do make sure that even with the hustle and bustle of the holidays that people celebrate and the end of the year. That I always take some time with the family to just enjoy us to before the next year starts.
2016 was such a great year for Saje Photography. Not only were we voted Best Child Photographer of Philadelphia and South Jersey by Philly Hot List
, but we also had to pleasure to photograph 143 sessions. 48 newborns, 44 maternity sessions,16 cakes smashes/birthdays, 2 senior portrait session, 6 head shot sessions and 27 family sessions. I had several sessions with the same family, had many repeat families that I am honored to continually capture year after year and met so many new clients as well. But more than that, you all allow me to continue to pursue a job that is less of a job and more of a passion and THANK YOU doesn't see to be enough.
From last minute changes, rain, snow and sickness, to photographing a Hair Salon Joseph Kenneth (Marlton NJ) with 18 employees at there location. As crazy as things could have gotten you all were so amazing and took everything in stride.
Thank you, to all my amazing clients and families for choosing Cherry Hill NJ Saje Photography. I only hope I can continue to watch your families grow and capture memories for years to come. Let's make 2017 even better than 2016. Some great things are coming up for us and I can't wait to share them with all of you. But more importantly, I look forward to capturing more of your families, babies, and children for many years to come!
P.s. Not all photos are show below. I just picked some of my favorites
