Where do I begin? So, my childhood friend just had her first baby girl! Her sister and I paced around all night, last night - waiting for the phone call to tell us to come to the hospital. That phone call finally came in at 1:30am - just when we closed our eyes. Up we got and we headed straight for the hospital - only to get there and wait. We waited for quite some time for this little girl to be welcomed to the world but we had a nice crowd (we usually do - it's a little on the crazy side). Miss Gabriella was born at 6:25am, weighing 6 lbs and 5 oz. She and her mommy and daddy are doing so great - I just love that I get to capture these first few moments of life for families. Even the pictures of the "waiting and waiting" and that one moment when daddy walks out telling the family members "She's here!" or the moment when he hugs his parents and can't believe that he is now a father or the moment when the grandmother holds her grandchild for the first time. These moments are moments that should be captured and I am so honored that I got to do that for this family. Enjoy!
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)
