PORTRAIT FACTS


A Be Creative Photography children's photo session begins with a phone consultation. Please give us a call at 201-540-9779 or fill out the contact form here. We photograph newborns, infants, children and families on location. The experience is relaxed and fun. The results are beautiful images of natural moments with your children. After your photo session we schedule an in-person meeting to showcase your images and create your order.

How long have you been in business?
We have been in business since 2005

Where are you located?
We are located in Wyckoff, NJ 07481. Available by appointment only

Do you have a studio?
No we do not. Together we will choose a location that's best for your family. Sometimes it's at your home. Often it's at a beautiful park with stunning landscapes and backdrops. After the session you will meet with us in our home consultation space.

What is your style?
The experience itself is a blast for the kids. Eric is super goofy and pulls out all his silly tricks to get the kids laughing and feeling comfortable. The images are of a storytelling nature, real moments and a lot of laughter! You will not find fake smiles, awkward poses, or ugly backdrops with us. The kids think the photo shoot is a playdate and often ask for Eric to come back again to play. Our goal is to capture the authentic laughter and the true nature of your children that warms your heart on a daily basis.

When should I book my session?
Family photo sessions are usually scheduled between January and November to ensure you have pictures for holiday gifts. You should book your session 3-4 months in advance for best availability. However, if our schedules allows for it we do take last minute shoots. For Newborn sessions you should book a date while you are still expecting. It is strongly recommended that the session takes place within the first 2 weeks of the baby's birth. We will pencil in a day for you around your due date and once the baby arrives call us right away to confirm the date for that week.

What do I need to do to prepare?
Not much, which is a great thing. Mostly we need you to show up and be yourself. But a little pre-planning goes a long way. We have an over the phone pre-planning consultation with you to get to know each other. We will discuss location, clothing, and style of photography to help us prepare for your photo session.

When is the best time of day for our session?
We will discuss the time of day based on your children's schedule and when the best light will be during that time of year. Generally we like to shoot in early morning light or just before sunset.

What should we wear?
This varies from person to person which is why we discuss it beforehand. Generally we suggest that you and your children wear what you feel you look the best in and expresses your personality. Do not be afraid of vibrant colors and accessories. As a family your clothes should coordinate but they do not have to be matchy matchy. We love fun props like hats and shoes or coats for your children.However, for newborn sessions we suggest a soft and simple color palette.

We want to use the images as decoration in our home but we are not sure which images to choose, can you help us?
Absolutely! This is the most common request from our clients. Our in-person meeting is very helpful in this area. We will help you choose the best images to showcase in your home. It's our specialty.

Can you come to my house to help me decide where to hang images?
Consultations at your home are available for a small fee.
