I am so Grateful to be on Sanibel to say the least !

I am so Grateful to be on Sanibel to say the least ! I am on Sanibel Island, with the people who I love in the place that bring’s me peace. I have a job that I find amazing. I have met some wonderful client’s that have become friends. My three kid’s under my roof and for the moment life is good.

    Sanibel is most accurately known for its surplus of beautiful shells, crystal clear water and its colorful sunsets. But what do you do if it is your first Sanibel sunset? Not to worry, I  have set up the ultimate sunset checklist so you won’t forget a thing!  First things first, the best way to enjoy watching the sun go down is by making yourself completely comfortable. Be sure to grab a couple of lightweight beach chairs and a few blankets or towels to set yourself right up on the beach perfectly. Next, you will want to make sure you bring a light snack and possibly something to sip to make the mood just right. A pair on sunglasses are necessary for right before the sun goes down, and of course a camera to capture all the beautiful moments with your favorite people!

The essence of a black and white photograph.

The essence of a black and white photograph.

 

 Ted Grant said “When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes.

But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!”

I really do believe that.

The essence of a black and white photograph.  Black and White portraits are an incredible way to create family heirlooms. I photograph black and white photos  in a “studio” setting in  Monmouth County NJ.  I have  studied Black and White Photography right here in New Jersey. It is truly my passion. For me it’s real human emotion being able to  photograph what the person is feeling at that moment in time. It doesn’t matter if your child’s hair isn’t perfect or if they just lost their first tooth – in black and white everything is perfect RAW emotion! Too see my black and white photo’s please click here. This beautiful family decided to surprise Mom with a mother’s day portrait.

This beautiful little girl

Just kind of happened to be so relaxed and ready. She was able fort that one second to help me capture her innocence and wonder. She is so beautiful inside and out and it show’s. If she were my daughter I would have this framed or up on the wall in a gallery wrap HUGE! As a matter of fact I have a 40×60 of my family up on top of the fireplace that I had done with a photographer who only shoot’s in black and white. The essence of a black and white photograph really does last forever.

These precious children, how they changed me.

These precious children, how they changed me

. I have also always worked with children. When I was 20 I had a job in NYC with the Board of Education working with children who had autism. I started taking college classes and some how was blessed enough to have gotten into an American sign language class. Which lead to being a sign language interpreter for deaf children. The two children that I was with are still a part of my life. That in itself speaks volume’s.I then went on to have my own children and that ended my career as an interpreter.

But then I met These precious children, and I can’t believe how they changed me in such a short time. This is “S” she was in no mood to sit still but then, there was that one second. Look at her eyes they are full of soul. “S” has just one extra chromosome which makes her special 🙂 To learn more about Down Syndrome click here.

monmouth_county family photographerThis little boy stole my heart. He was the most well mannered young man I was lucky enough to get to know. He  has chromosome 9 q duplication. To read about it click here.

monmouth county family photographerWould you look at this outfit! She is certainly a daddy’s girl, her entire face lit up when he came around. She has the most loving family and the most beautiful siblings. “Ce” is stunning. Too see more of my photos of children click here.

I was lucky enough to get a phone call from this dapper young man’s mom. She told me about his personality and  I immediately “saw” a top hat and cane in my head. Honestly, I feel blessed to have been introduced to all of these wonderful families thru reaching out and asking for a model call.

Monmouth county family photographerI really hope to become a small part of this group by documenting these beautiful children through photo’s. I always knew that I wanted to do something different with photography but I had no idea that These precious children, would change the way I work .To get in touch with me regarding any type of photo session please contact me here.

Sanibel Captiva countdown. 5 more days!

I am on the Sanibel Captiva countdown. Thanksgiving, has always been one of my favorite childhood memories. Walking up at noon and smelling the turkey in the oven meant that my dad was up very early in the morning prepping. The best part that was my family would be around. Sometimes if we were lucky it was both sides of the family, all of my cousins!  I miss those days dearly. I am confident that one day we will all get to do this together again. My cousin Gab and I use to go into my parents room where my dad would have at least 10 cakes and pies and all  of those cakes were from a bakery in Brooklyn named Lord’s. OMG!!! I can taste the middle of that black out cake now Gab and I would eat the chocolate right out of the middle.

But this year as in the last few years I am going home. “Home is where your heart is and also where your mom is”.  So that is what I am rambling on  about this morning.

I want to swim in the gulf of mexico in SWFL Sanibel and Captiva Island and find the treasures waiting for us. Whether it be finding  the elusive Junonia shell or sitting on the pier watching the dolphins and manatees We will be going  bike riding  until my girls scream at me that I am going to fast ( yup my almost adult children can’t keep up with me ). Then we are going to eat at our favorite breakfast place the Over easy cafe. But most of all I am going to be waking up on Thanksgiving morning to the smell of the turkeySanibel Captiva Island family photographerWhich my Dad will be cooking my mom will be keeping us all laughing Needless to say I am on the Sanibel Captiva countdown. I said I wasn’t going to advertise anymore but I do have one spot left for a family photo Session at an amazingly LOW PRICE. In the event you will be on the Island’s during the holiday .My one and only remaining day is Friday the 24th.If you are interested in a family or child photo session on FRIDAY  NOVEMBER 24 click here.

Why hire a Proposal Photographer?

With the holidays coming up I just know a very lucky couple will be starting their lives together by getting engaged. I guess the question is

*Why hire a Proposal Photograher?

Marlboro NJ Proposal Photographer

You are about to ask what is arguably the biggest, most important question of your life, e the decision to spend your life with another person. Most  likely you  have purchased a ring, or are currently on the hunt for one. Maybe you are even planning a secret event with your future fiancée’s family, friends to celebrate the occasion. However, one aspect of your proposal that you may not have considered is hiring a professional photographer to capture it all happen . Here’s why we think you should!

*It goes by so fast 

Monmouth county Family photographer

If you hire someone to photograph your proposal for one reason alone, it should be to have the memories saved forever! The moment you’ve been waiting for only lasts just that long a single moment! When you are swept up in the experience of getting down on one knee, and your partner is in a whirlwind of surprise and excitement, you will want someone there to document every second so you can relive it again and again. Being that it is such a quick moment in time  it is important that your photographer knows how to help you, whether it be, where to stand etc.

*Never forget a moment 

Monmouth County Proposal Photogrpahy

 Whether you’re inviting a few close loved ones to celebrate. Or maybe keeping things intimate by popping the question with no one around, there are going to be people who want to see your proposal who simply weren’t present. Having photos allows you to enjoy those first moments of a newly engaged couple by yourselves.  While still having something to show your parents, your best friend’s and your whole social media network after the fact.

* It’s the start of your life together

Chances are, you plan to hire a photographer for your engagement photos and wedding. Each of these experiences is so important to the greater story of your life together, and your proposal is no exception. Wouldn’t it be nice to have record of this chapter of your lives from its start?

It will also make amazing gifts to your parents and grandparents to remember the occasion

Are you still wondering Why hire a Proposal Photographer? Click here to contact me. We help plan by pulling out your memories of your first date, how you met or what may have made you fall in love. One of these photos was taken in one of  Monmouth counties   High School

Photos By Glenna What is happening for 2018?

HELLO EVERYONE!

Photos By Glenna What is happening for 2018?

 How can it be Thanksgiving already, didn’t the year just start? Time is moving so fast I honestly wish t would slow down. With that being said I guess its time to move forward. I created my business quite by accident or fate, either way this passion of mine has become my “baby”. This year PhotosByGlenna has grown in leaps and bounds.

We have a Brand New Website along with a new way to do business. I want to cater to my client. I want the adults to feel as if they are on a fun relaxing hour break. From the first phone call to the very last I want you to feel 100% comfortable with me as your photographer and along with that comes knowing exactly your family dynamic. I will be sending out questionnaires after a deposit is given so I can get to know your family IE:  Which child shouldn’t be next to each other 🙂 Trust me I KNOW all about this.

We are starting what is called in the photography industry as IPS, which is “In person sales”. Whether it be in your home, my office, or if you want a cup of coffee at, a local coffee shop. Just please keep me away from chocolate 🙂

This will be when I show you the  color corrected and very minimal edited images. This way, you pick your photo’s. Let me explain further. If you click here you will find various different images. Some I would look at and never pick to be in your gallery. As a couple, or a Parent or  Grandparent you know your loved one’s facial expressions. They may have a look that reminds you of when they were a baby. I know sometimes when I go into my daughter’s room and she’s sleeping I really can still see the baby in her. Or the way that he/she looks at you and you just ” know” what the look mean’s without saying it .

Monmouth County Photographer Photos of Senior Citizens Session

Look at this photo underneath. This is my oldest daughter who has had 21 years of a camera in front of her every move. I can’t get a serious photo these days unless I bribe her. ( I know bad parenting-Im over it ) the point is, look at her face there are tear’s running down her face and I was so angry that she wouldn’t sit still. Then the magic in my head happened,  THIS is the perfect photo. That is my child hysterical laughing she is happy, safe and making me laugh.

marlboro NJ Momouth Family photograherOr this photo, even though this little girl’s face isn’t showing  her parent’s picked THIS photo because she is doing the “Sanibel Stoop” click here to see what the”Sanibel Stoop is”. I would have picked it also, my daughter’s and my mom have been doing it for years.

Sanibel captiva family photograher
Okay so you pick your high-resolution photos on a screen that has been calibrated to show you exactly what It will look like on your wall. I will also be working with Frame Decor and Gallery in Marlboro NJ click here to see Denise’s framing store. This way you get to pick the photos at your leisure. I will help you design how the photographs will look and bring you happy moments each and every time you look at them. I have too many clients and friends who have purchased the digital files and NEVER printed any of them. Which is fine however this year PhotosByGlenna is going to try it this way. To help you by being there !

  We also are very happy to continue with the movement of Changing the Face of Beauty. Click here to learn more about it.

There will be special Luxury Sessions that will be announced in a few day’s. Now, if you made it this far down the blog I will give you for  FREE one extra pose, however you must mention this NOW or Before your Luxury Session! So to end this long blog this is what will be happening at Photos By Glenna What is happening for 2018!

siblings are your first best friend

In fact, siblings are our first friends. They are usually raised together, so siblings understand each other better, even without a brief explanation. Relationship between siblings is a bit complicated especially in childhood. They fight and argue with each other every now and then, but at the end of the day they can’t live without each other. At some point we believe them to be our biggest rival and at other moment feel immense love for them. With time as they mature, they understand each other much better and learn to respect more. Please click here to contact me for a photo session.

                                                                             Siblings may look strangely alike, have the same mannerisms, but a much deeper bond exists that cannot be explained. Though it is easy to get on one another’s nerves, the underlying truth is that we continue to have trivial arguments because we know we can. With friends, petty fights can turn into larger issues, and can damage a relationship. With siblings, however, the lasting connection can never be completely shattered, no matter how harsh the disagreement is.

Everyone says that siblings become better friends through the years. The lucky ones are those who are friends with their siblings.

Go call your brothers and sisters and tell them how much they mean to you. Whether or not you see one another regularly, or only speak on occasion, family is family, and a sibling is forever someone who will pick up the phone.

Having a sister or a brother is like having a best friend you can’t get rid of. You know whatever you do, they will still be there. This is for you Leslie. We may not be related by blood. But I will always have your back. You will always be my sister from another mother. Lets take photos!  If you would like to see my Pinterest page click here.
