I’m Debbie, a Scotch Plains Family Photographer specializing in capturing candid and emotive images for families seeking a relaxed photo experience.  

Emotion. Connection. Family Love & Beautiful Light. These are the things that inspire me to photograph families and tell their stories. 

The way a mother looks lovingly into her little boy’s eyes...The smile on a dad’s face when he holds his daughter close...Siblings sweetly snuggling... These are the moments I want to capture for your family!
