Portrait Sessions

$175 Creative Fee

​Life is filled with moments and emotions to celebrate and treasure. My portrait sessions for individuals, couples and families:


Memorialize the joy of milestone occasions such as engagements, pregnancy (maternity session), and the birth and welcoming of a child.
Create lasting memories of special birthdays and graduations.
Capture the love between you and your family, the laughter or silliness of your children, and the special bond between grandparents and grandchildren.

Each portrait session is individually designed to bring your dream session to life, with great attention to detail. I offer indoor or outdoor options throughout northern NJ, and Rockland and Westchester counties in New York. 

Whether you would like digital images to share online with your family and friends or a beautiful canvas of your family portrait to display in your home, I offer heirloom-quality products to cherish forever.

Treasures that will last a lifetime


"The photos were so beautiful! Charissa took full advantage of the scenery and the sunlight. She was so professional and warm. My kids loved her immediately, and they felt so comfortable. After our session, Charissa treated me like a rock star. She presented the photos in such a special and unique way. The quality of her work is really unparalleled. I just re-watched the slide show she prepared, and it brought tears to my eyes…the music, the memories, it was really perfect. Thank you Charissa!" - Amy D


“Charissa is a gem! We worked together for my engagement photoshoot and everything came out perfect! Charissa was always polite and responsive right from the beginning. She took time to get to know our story and she was helpful and accommodating every step of the way. Our session was fun and she made us feel so comfortable. Our pictures are the best and we can't wait to share them with our family and friends. Thank you, Charissa, we'll come back soon!!” - Irene P.


"Charissa is extremely professional, so sweet, and such an absolute pleasure to work with! My newborn was having a very fussy day on the day of our newborn photo shoot so I was pretty nervous but you could never tell from the images Charissa captured. They came out absolutely stunning and amazing!!! I loved them all! I can’t wait to use Charissa again as my baby girl grows. Thank you so much!" - Allison O.


"Charissa took extended family pictures with many poses and grouping, 13 of us! 7 adults and 6 children under the age of 10! She was so professional and patient. The pictures came out amazing, we are so very pleased with our photo shoot! She is wonderful to work with from the start, very calm personality that puts everyone at ease and the photo video shown at the end was accompanied by a wonderful lyric of song, took our breath away. Thank you so much Charissa." - Janice L.


"Charissa was a gem to work with! She is very sweet, and as a mom herself, she was comfortable working with families. My 5 year old is in a somewhat uncooperative stage, and yet she worked with him so well that the photos she captured of him were beautiful and caught the essence of his personality." - Jennifer W.



I invite you to schedule a complimentary no-obligation consultation first. I believe finding the right photographer whom you feel comfortable working with is very important and it will reflect in your images.



When you are ready to book a session, I will send you the contract and invoice for the retainer to make it official.



I will send a questionnaire for you to complete and then we will plan all the details of your photo session together.
