Your son's sweet, shy smile...that gap where his front teeth used to be... Your tween/teen's joyful grin when your husband hugs him close...
I see beauty in those little, everyday expressions of family life and connection. So, whether it's the quiet and sweet moments or the silly, lighthearted ones that come with all the chaos and craziness of family life, I'll capture your family's moments and turn them into treasured memories that you can display beautifully in your home.
Hi there! I'm Debbie, a New Jersey Family Photographer specializing in lifestyle maternity, newborn and family photography in the Westfield area. If you want a relaxed, stress-free and fun photography experience and beautiful, natural family photos, I'd love to tell your story through my lens.
As a mom to a teenage boy, I know just how fast kids grow and how fleeting each season of childhood is. However little or big your kids are are right now, there're things at this stage of your child’s life you want to remember.
Your baby nestled cozily in your arms... Your toddler's windswept, wispy curls as they sparkle in the sunshine..
Besides photographing the beauty in ordinary moments, I find inspiration and serenity in spending time outdoors. I'm a baseball momma and love watching my son play ball. I can't live without hugs and hot tea. Yoga and meditation keep me calm. Pretty flowers make me smile and summer is my favorite season because in New Jersey it means beach weather, Jersey berries, and tomatoes. But I also love fall foliage, crisp air, cozy sweaters, and snuggling on the sofa with my family and our crazy cats Bella and Luna, no matter what the season.
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

Debbie is a true artist and just a warm, sweet, beautiful human! Our little family takes lots of phone photos, as does everyone else; but finding Debbie to capture our real moments was truly the biggest gift to us. [We have] stunning photos of our sweet little family. Our baby is growing so fast, and now we have this dreamy moment to look at and enjoy with a grateful heart for decades to come.
