What a little peanut! Say hello to this tiny six-pounder. She did great for her newborn mini session. Mom and dad hung out with me the whole time in the studio and watched their little princess get her close ups for the first time. We had a great time chatting as well.
I can't believe this is my last in-studio session until my little one comes! I will be taking a few weeks maternity leave to just recover and hang with my little ones but I am returning pretty quickly in September due to some amazing newbies being born and their mommies wanting me to take their pictures! So, stay tuned. And of course I'll be doing my own newborn session within two weeks of my little one being born too. So excited!
Well, until the next session - enjoy this cutie!!
What an adorable family. I had an absolute blast hangin' out with these new clients Sunday night here at the studio. We then ventured down to the lake for some golden hour, sunlit pictures. My favorite. Big sister Gracie and little brother Mark were just awesome! Mom and dad were so down to earth and easy to photograph - just a great a little family that made the trip from Westchester to come and see me for their summer family pictures. I am so lucky and honored to have the referrals run deep in Westchester from my original home base and still love my work enough to come and travel to me here in New Jersey. I appreciate it MORE than I can say!
Enjoy these sneaks!

This little cutie girl! IS TURNING ONE next month! We celebrated her birthday a little early in the studio so mommy can use her pictures for her invitations! Mariella was sooooooo fun. SO GOOD. So, so HAPPY. She rocked her session and how amazing is this little cake? Donuts & sprinkle theme played through from the cake to the bow to the tutu. Loved how it all came together. Enjoy her little sneaks!
Looking to book a cake smash + bubble bath milestone session for your almost ONE year old? It's never too early to put this session on my calendar! I recommend doing them at 10 1/2 months or even 11 months so you don't have a runner trying to escape the studio room ;) and you get to use the pictures for the party/invites etc. too!
Sweet, gorgeous ADDISON! Addison was here just a couple months ago for her modeling head shots and now she was here for her cake smash & ONE milestone session. The theme for her party is JUNGLE - she's having her 1st birthday party at the ZOO - how freakin' cool is that! So leopard bow, green frilly onesie and a little jungle themed cake was in the works for this cutie for her smash. Daddy helped her out but really, she dug right into it immediately and loved her cake! Her traditional milestone shots came out fantastic - those big beautiful eyes staring directly into my camera is perfection. Her eyelashes - she is just so dreamy. So cute. She didn't love props this session and wanted to just be on her own and do her own thing! Typical one year old in the studio, love it. Well, enjoy this cutie's sneaks!
9 WEEKS. Almost 3 months old already! I really can't even call this little babe a newborn anymore but I will, because she slept like a little newbie for me! It took a little bit for Miss Stella to fall asleep (totally expected that with a 9-week old) so when she was alert and smiling and cooing at me for about 45 minutes - I just let her hang out and get comfy and cozy with me. Once she fell asleep though, this little mini session went quick. The last part of the session - on the beanbag/fur - she woke up and gave me the best looks and smiles! Something you definitely cannot guarantee or hope to get during a traditional newborn session from a 5 day old! So that was pretty awesome and I just know mom and dad are going to love those candid'ish pictures of her smiling!
Enjoy this little sneak. If you're interested in a newborn session - contact me HERE!
GIRLS. GIRLS. GIRLS. Meet the three newest triplets - Kate, Fiona & Rory. All now home with mom, dad and big brother & doing just fantastic - weighing in around the 5lb mark but they sure had a little journey in the NICU to get there. These gorgeous girls were born on May 2nd and there is a little snapshot of the three of them at birth! They have come such a long way and I am so, so lucky and fortunate to have been able to document and capture this newborn session for this family. Shannon's pregnancy story is really an amazing one and I think she is ONE BADASS momma! Check out this new family of SIX!
Another LRP newborn - ONE YEAR LATER. How. How? HOW?! This here is Miss Celia. If you want a little recap of her adorable newborn session - click here! Then come on back and see how much she has grown UP! The red hair of course is still gorgeous and eye-popping as ever. Her little smile and those little teeth are adorable. I had a blast with mom, dad & grandma "behind the scenes" getting these smiles and teeth to show for the camera but she was pretty much a natural. She gave me all the looks and put her hands in just the right places for her poses. Made me a very happy photographer!
I love simple, no fuss - no prop milestone sessions. ALLLLLL the focus is on the baby and when your baby looks like this - well, it's no wonder mommy didn't want any props. Just focus on my beautiful baby girl! Yes, ma'am. I would love to.
Enjoy Celia's milestone session - she rocked it.

"I had seen her work on Instagram and knew right away she was the person I wanted to take photos of my newborn! Lynda was amazing! She knew all the tricks to make my little one sit perfectly for all of the photos. She made my husband and I feel super comfortable as her studio has everything you need to have a great experience and an amazing outcome for your photos. I loved all of the props she had to choose from and all of the creative ideas she had to make our newborn shoot as unique as we are!
The studio is so cozy, warm, and inviting. She had an area with supplies for all of your baby needs and an area for all of the parents needs. She had many options in terms of back drops and props." - Lindsay, NJ (Newborn Session)
I would describe my experience with LRP as: Comfortable. Easy. Exciting. Memorable. Lynda allows you to feel at ease and be yourself. She comes up with ideas and has an eye for things you wouldn’t think of making the end product so anticipated. And most of all she creates an atmosphere for memories to be made. What I loved most about working with Lynda was how relaxed but driven she is. She makes you feel so comfortable like nothing is going on yet gives her all into getting the perfect picture without you even realizing. If I had to describe LRP Studios I would say: It’s perfect. You feel at home, cared for and welcomed. She has everything you may need from coffee to diapers to a couch with the games on so your husband, if he so chooses to come, can sit back and relax on. It’s clean, organized and filled with pictures and love from her clients, family and friends. It’s beautiful. - L.K NY (Newborn & Milestone Session)
My biggest fear was having a newborn and the unknown of how the session would go as they are unpredictible!
I chose LRP because of viewing her blog and galleries, reading the amazing client testmonies, and seeing her passion for what she does! She has an amazing gift of patience when working with these little ones! My biggest fear was him not cooperating and when that started to happen, she made me and my son feel so calm. She really let us customize the props we wanted, made sure she knew what we were looking for! When we couldn’t get the family photos done she was so accommodating by coming to our home on a second occasion so we could get them! She goes above and beyond to make you feel special, and well, her work speaks for itself! She loves what she does, she is patient, calm, gentle and accommodating! She is exactly who you want working with your little one when capturing these precious memories! - Nicole, NJ (Newborn Session)
I had been actively looking for a photographer in the area to grow with me and my family. Lynda had a model call for a sitter and after looking at her website, I felt her style was exactly what I was looking for. Her photos really capture personality - which is what I wanted more than anything! Luckily we were selected and after our session, I was extremely happy. I have a family / milestone session coming up this month and can't wait for the results! Lynda as a person is very relatable. She is a NJ mom just like me so we were able to have real conversations. It made me so comfortable to tell her what I was looking for in my photos. She also takes the time to edit and select your photos for the gallery - and even does a reveal session in person to make it personalized!- Katelin, NJ
***** 5 Stars! What made me choose LRP was her availablity, flexibility and price. The experience with LRP that was so unique was the ease of reviewing photos online and downloading afterwards.The most important thing someone should know about Lynda is that it is so easy to communicate with her during and after the photoshoot. - Jaymie, NJ
During a newborn session for my second daughter she made my older daughter feel super special and important during the shoot. This was extremely touching to me because my older daughter went from being the star, single child, sole grandchild on both sides of the family to having to share the spotlight with her new sister and new cousin who are 11 weeks apart! Lynda is caring and compassionate. As a current teacher I see the former teacher in Lynda come out when she works with children. Most of the qualities you want in a teacher is almost everything you want in a photographer, too- PATIENT, calm, enthusiastic about her work, patient, knowledgeable, friendly, loving and oh did I mention patient? - Maria, NY (Newborn Session)
I wanted a fresh take on my photos and had promised to give her the opportunity. She definitly delivered. It was so easy!! Nothing felt rushed or forced. She knows exactly where to place you, and has tons of patience. It was a pleasure. I didn't have to think about anything...except how I'm going to choose my favorites from all the awesome shots she got.She really knows how to get the perfect shots with light, etc. and makes it so easy (even with a 2 yr old in the shots! - Stephanie, NJ (Family/Maternity Session)
I have used Lynda Renee Photography for my wedding and my daughter's newborn pictures. I had no fears for my daughter's pictures but my wedding I was a little concerned that Lynda's specialty was babies not weddings, but I should have known I should not have any fears because the pictures were perfect. I am not someone who likes to take pictures. I needed someone who I knew to gently but firmly take the pictures I needed to remember my wedding. For my daughter's newborn pictures I just knew Lynda was the one to take the best shots of her so we could always see how amazing she was as a newborn. - Krista, NY (Wedding & Newborn Session)
I’m sure everyone feels this way about her (so it may not be too unique) but it’s amazing to find someone who has been a part of your journey of starting a family, adding to it, and everything in between! Lynda is truly one of kind who makes you feel comfortable and captures moments which you will cherish forever! -Melissa, NY (Maternity/Family and Newborn Session)
What a great experience! The studio is beautiful and Lynda was extremely gentle and patient with my newborn. The preview photos were sent before we returned home and came out beautiful. I highly recommend! - Taryn, NY (Newborn Session)
