I loved this family…they were fun, relaxed and the conversation came easy. The kids were adorable and we had no problem getting them to laugh and play and even strike a dapper pose or two. The little guy was one and half, so when you put him down, he was on the go! And I followed – hey, it’s part of the job description. Then I finally smartened up and asked his brother to catch him, which made for some cute shots.
For this session, we visited the beautiful NJ Botanical Gardens, and this was before the freak snow storm wreaked havoc on many of it’s trees and plants. But our timing was good and the grounds were such a picturesque backdrop for this beautiful family…I just love the results.

Well, with Hurricane Irene upon us, I thought we could use some sunny beach pictures to brighten things up… These boys got so big since the last time I saw them for a newborn & big brother session. Look at them now – all kinds of adorable. And what a change in just eight months!
Beach sessions for children are some of my favorites. Mom and Dad dressed them in great beachwear and brought colorful, wooden beach chairs which made for awesome props. At the end of the session, we were joined by the whole family… for a beautiful finale!

I love that I get to encourage laughing on the job! It doesn’t always work, but it certainly did for this session. These four kids were awesome…they were engaging, interesting, and just delightful. They laughed easily, especially the girls, which not only makes my job easier but more fun. And I’m all about fun on the job. These portraits are a surprise Father’s Day gift from their mom to their dad and I just love that idea.
It’s always fun for me to try to capture each child’s unique beauty and I think you can see the different personalities shining through in these images…

This spring we have some exciting new plans in the works here at Christine DeSavino Photography, and earlier this month we announced the first bloom of the season with our Baby’s First Year Plan. Well now with our second bloom we have the perfect compliment to a baby package or a newborn session. In fact it’s the perfect companion to any portrait session that celebrates a special event in the life of a child…
Blossom Two: a Custom Gift Registry
And keep checking back as there are more buds about to burst here at our studio!
Here at Christine DeSavino Photography we’ve been working hard at putting together some exciting new plans to better serve our clients,
and we’re ready to start announcing what’s now in bloom…
Blossom One: Baby’s First Year Plan
Many of you who follow my photography know how much I adore newborn sessions….there’s nothing more special to me than capturing the purity of a new little one. The first few days of an infant’s life are so precious and endearing, but equally remarkable is the baby’s entire first year. From holding up their head to rolling over, from beginning to crawl to walking and eventually cruising all over the house, a baby will grow more during this first year than any other time in their life. And it goes by so quickly…
So to commemorate this treasured time, I’ve created a brand new plan that will capture and celebrate each milestone of a baby’s first year.
Here are the details of my Baby Plan:
- one full newborn session within the first 10 days of birth
- one full 6-month-old session (or around the time your baby begins to crawl)
- one full 12-month-old session (or around the time your baby begins to criuse, this is the perfect time for a Cake Smash Session!)
- optional mini-sessions at 3 & 9 months (or when your baby holds their head up & when your baby begins to walk)
- optional maternity-mini-session
- each full session is priced at a discount
- each full session comes with a $100 complimentary Fine Art Canvas Credit, mini-sessions come with a $50 credit
- the completed baby plan comes with a $300 complimentary Album Credit
- over $600 worth of built in savings!
And in order to help our plan to grow…
the first 5 people who book my Baby Plan during the month of May will receive:
- 1 free box of Birth Announcement Cards at completion of their Newborn Session
- 1 free 20×20 Storyboard commemorating each stage of their child’s first year at completion of the baby plan
For full details and pricing, please call me at 917-697-1835 or contact me here.
And keep checking back as there are more buds about to burst here at our studio!

I had the pleasure of meeting these two adorable children not long ago…when it was a little too cold to venture outside. They were beautiful, and I love the expressions they gave me… For me it’s not always about the smiles… I mean, smiles are great and I do my best to capture some at every session, as you will see below. But there is also something special about catching a more thoughtful expression that shows another side of your child’s personality. I find these shots beautiful! I guess for me it’s about capturing genuine expressions…nothing forced…no “say cheese” for example. This older sister was a little shy at first. She started to come out of her shell little by little and then once I started to photograph her brother, she got a renewed interest…funny how that happens with kids, right?
Anyway, this first one is one of my favorites…
An adorable smile…
…but I just love her expression in this one!
This little guy is so adorable and also gave us a variety of expressions…
What a beautiful pair!

I met both these kids as newborns and it blows me away to see how quickly they’ve grown! This little girl doesn’t like to be away from mommy’s arms for too long, but we did manage to get some winning smiles while she sat all by herself! She looked just beautiful in the Crewcut dress mom put her in for the shoot, and had lovely accessories to match. I am loving her wind-blown hair, her little hands and that gentle smile in this first shot. This is my third time photographing her older brother – he gets more gorgeous every time I see him. Just check out his big brown eyes. Love the ‘do, too!
