Family Love & Beautiful Light.

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

The way a mother looks lovingly at her little boy...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!
