Family Jewels: Small Product Photography Assignment

While putting the finishing touches on my small product photography studio, I got a call: A family wanted photos of the estate of the recently-deceased matriarch. This would be both for insurance purposes, to help them sell the jewelry, and to create keepsakes of these items, many of which the family members closely associate with the woman who wore them.

So, in addition to creating a comprehensive photographic catalog of the family jewels (yes, I went there), I also photographed each in a manner suitable for display in the family's dining room so they could always feel Nana's presence.

Family Photos: Visiting Grandchildren, Working Fast

Most kids melt down within 15 minutes of the beginning of a photo shoot, so I have to work fast. Fortunately, a lot of great photos can be had in that time!

Here are the family's favorites from a shoot I did a few weeks ago in Edison, NJ.

I am available to photograph your family! Email me at for details!

Event Photos: National Night Out, August 6, 2014 in Highland Park

Last night was National Night Out, and as always, Highland Park NJ gets into the spirit of things with citizens and first responders—especially the police—able to enjoy a wonderful evening in a relaxed atmosphere.

Here are some of my photos from the event, starting with Congressman Frank Pallone, who was wandering around at the beginning.
