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.

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.

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 .

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.

I would have picked it also, my daughter’s and my mom have been doing it for years.

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!

Changing the face of beauty, NJ photographer


   Changing the face of beauty,

NJ Photographer this Session Melted my heart.


Changing the face of beauty, NJ Photographer   I am beyond blessed. Not only do I get to photograph people but as a NJ photographer I am going to try to help. Although for the life of me I can’t image how anyone could look at these faces and not see the beauty?  Since many years ago I have always loved children. Before having three of my own I worked for the school system with children who had Autism , somehow that lead into working as a sign language interpreter for deaf children. Anything I could do to  help in  Changing the face of beauty.  would make me proud.

I have learned about a Network named “Network21”  If you are a Parent or a Care giver of a child who has that beautiful one extra chromosome  and are not aware of this organization  reach out to them. I have met some beautiful human’s thru them. Also learning a lot IE: I have learned that there are ways of speaking about people, which resonated with me on so many different levels. I use to be the “September 11 Widow” and my beautiful friend Debbie use to be known as “the one with Cancer”.

With people, FIRST LANGUAGE, kids are kids are kids-same with adults.  Don’t define people by their diagnosis. We don’t say, oh there’s so and so, he’s a cancer kid.  We say oh, there’s so and so. Same for Down Syndrome.  Logan is a child.  Not a Down Syndrome child.  DS has a lot to do with his make up but it doesn’t define him. He has his mother’s complexion, eyelashes and veins, and he’s the spitting image of his father. He s active, kind, loving and the most empathetic person you’ll ever meet. Logan is a sweet, smart, witty little boy who happens to have Down Syndrome .

As my own children started to grow up I decided to document their childhood with my camera and then I fell in love with photography all over again. So, with all that being said I am here today with Logan and his amazing family who were  an absolute joy to be with, much less to have the honor to  photograph.

                    I believe what Changing the face of beauty is doing is wonderful. In a world where everybody is different we should celebrate. That is exactly what I did. I am so beyond thrilled that I had the opportunity again, to photograph a Child with Down’s Syndrome. You can view the other photo’s on my page just click here.

                                               To contact us for your childs photography needs or any other sessions please click here.

Monmouth county family photographerI can’t end this blog without mentioning Logans beautiful soulful sister. She is just as sweet as Logan and LOVED posing for the camera!
