Christmas Photo Sessions – Book Them Now

Monmouth County Family Photographer

Christmas Photo Sessions?  Yes, it’s that time of year.  Honestly, it’s hard to believe. And, I know you HATE thinking about Christmas before you have even picked your pumpkins and purchased your Halloween candy.  But, if you want to have some truly awesome  Holiday pictures, now is the time to take them.

Understand, when I say Christmas photos, I KNOW that different images appear in each of your minds. Some families dream of beautiful, traditional Christmas children’s photos featuring Santa Clause. On the other hand, others may want a different experience. At Photos By Glenna, I offer a photo shoot tailored to your specific wants and needs.


Magical Santa Experience

This year, Photos By Glenna is offering the opportunity to participate in Christmas photo shoot “experience”. First, your children will visit with Santa in his cozy, and local workshop. Then, Santa will share milk and cookies and the magic of the holidays. Finally, this private experience, which lasts 30-40 minutes, will be captured on film. From this shoot, I will create beautiful custom portraits and a Storybook Album. In the end, these custom art pieces will be yours to treasure forever.

As a professional photographer, offering this beautiful experience has been a goal of mine for years. So, bringing this opportunity to Marlboro, Freehold, Manalapan and all of Monmouth County is the realization of a dream. That said, I cannot wait to share this joy with you, your children and your grandchildren. Without a doubt, it will be a  photo shoot experience you will never forget.


Holiday Photo Sessions

While I am thrilled about my Santa Experience photos, I also realize that it may not be the first choice for everyone. Let’s face it, we don’t all have little children, and don’t all celebrate Christmas.

That said, I am ready to leverage my years of experience taking holiday photos. I cannot wait to help create a personalized shoot for you. Do you want a formal shoot in the studio? If so, we can create  fine art photos that make the most beautiful holiday gifts.  Or, perhaps you want a more relaxed session? We can shoot outdoors at the location of your choice. We can even sneak it a holiday prop or two, which could make for a super-fun holiday card!



Schedule Your Holiday Photo Session Today

In short, whether you are interested in a Magical Santa Experience or a different type of holiday photo shoot, contact me. As a Monmouth County professional photographer, I have extensive experience taking children’s photographs, couples pictures, family photographs and more. So, let me use my experience and creativity to develop a unique holiday photo shoot for you.

Above all, holidays mean family. Take every opportunity to capture yours, on film.

Fall Family Photos

Fall Family Photos

Monmouth County Professional Photographer

Fall Family Photos. It’s finally fall in Monmouth County. In a word, the weather has been weird. Eighty-plus degrees at the end of September is simply confusing to me.  You see, I’m ready for the change in seasons. Honestly, I LOVE fall — the cool, crisp air, the changing color of the leaves, and the Halloween and Thanksgiving holidays.  In my mind, fall is synonymous with family

On-location Photo Shoots for Fall Family Photos

Without a doubt, this time of year is perfect for a kids outdoor photoshoot. We are blessed to live within a short driving distance of some of the most amazing locations. Looking for ideas?  How about one of these.

Pumpkin Patch Family Photos


First, consider having your family pictures taken at one of the many local pumpkin patches; there are soooo many. Once there, we will take pictures among the pumpkins, with bales of hay and even with those silly scarecrows! Even better,  kids LOVE a pumpkin patch. Have you ever been to A. Casola Farms in Holmdel? Honestly, it is amazing! Consequently, a pumpkin patch is a natural ice breaker; your kids will immediately be comfortable.

Family Photos in an Apple Orchards

Secondly, think about taking pictures in an apple orchard.  Clearly, apple picking is a fun, family activity and our local orchards are beautiful.  For example, drive through Colts Neck and look at all the apple trees at Delicious Orchards.  Or, check out Battleview Orchards in Freehold, another wonderful choice.  In short, your family can enjoy a morning or afternoon of apple picking, and I can take some awesome pics! And, If we’re lucky, we can all enjoy a donut and some yummy apple cider when we are done!

Pictures in Local Parks

Finally, we are blessed to have some the most amazing local parks in Monmouth County. Filled with multicolored trees, places like Holmdel Park and Allaire State Park both serve as excellent photo shoot locations. Just imagine a huge pile of fallen leaves, all the fun we can have and the amazing pictures we’ll take.

Sanibel Island Beach Sessions

Sanibel Island Beach Sessions

It’s that time again. I’m planning my next trip back to Florida. Clearly, Sanibel Island is calling my name! It’s so funny, we had one “cool” day and I’m already craving time back at the beach.  Without a doubt, Sanibel is my happy place.


A Working Trip – Sanibel Island Beach Sessions

While I’m on vacation, I am offering some awesome Sanibel Island beach sessions see above. Understand, I ALWAYS have my camera. You see, it is almost like an extension of my being. In fact, the one time I didn’t have it with me, this summer, I was at the beach. In July in Asbury Park, one of my favorite beaches in New Jersey, a WHALE swam past me, not far from the shore. Truly, it was beyond amazing. And, guess who had to use her IPHONE to photograph it.  Yup, that would be me.  Of course, the one day I did not bring the camera.

So, I digressed. I will be in Sanibel and WILL have my camera. That said, if your vacation corresponds with mine, consider scheduling a Sanibel Island beach session!

Vacation beach photo shoots are some of my favorites. Everyone is relaxed and ready for some fun. Take advantage of having your family together in a new environment and capture the essence of your vacation on film.  Even better, these sessions are perfect for holiday photos. We can incorporate your entire family – and even a holiday prop to make things a bit festive.


The Perfect Location For Sanibel Island Beach Sessions

Without a doubt Sanibel (and Captiva) provide the perfect backdrop for a photo shoot. We can visit the beach of your choice, Bowman Beach is one of my favorites (there are some awesome shells to be found there). The combination of the cool white sand, the beautiful blue gulf and sunny skies make this an ideal place for photos.

Also, if you are settled at your hotel and your family is having a great time, there is no need to disrupt their fun. You see, I’m happy to head on over to you.  Looking for a hotel recommendation? Sanibel has so many.  For example, I’ve always been a fan of the Sundial Beach Resort and Casa Ybel on Sanibel.  However, if you are headed to Captiva, visit the South Seas Island Resort.  It has something for everyone and tons spots for fun and fabulous photos.

My Sanibel Island  Favorites

As long as your planning your Sanibel Island vacation, let me share some awesome places to visit when you are on the island.  First, head over to The Over Easy Cafe for breakfast (or lunch or dinner). Truly, it’s been a favorite of mine for years.  In fact, I used to take my girls here all the time when they were little!  Also, I’ma HUGE fan of the Mad Hatter restaurant. Their presentations are simply beautiful.  Finally, if you are looking for a casual spot to grab a drink and appetizers, visit Doc Fords. You cannot go wrong with the mussels and an adult beverage. Trust me, call ahead and confirm there will be live music – the perfect end to a vacation day.

Clearly, I love Sanibel.  And, as a Sanibel Island photographer I look forward to capturing images of you enjoying this truly magical place in my Sanibel Island Beach Sessions.

So, give me a call today, we can chat about the opportunity to take some fun, family photos. I love my working vacations in Sanibel. And, I promise, this short and sweet Sanibel Island Limited Holiday session will give you some time to enjoy yourself and capture your entire family together enjoying one of the most beautiful places on earth.
