Be Creative Photography Mother’s Day Special

Mother’s Day is only 1 month away (May 8th). Do you have a gift for your Mom yet? A gift certificate for family photography is the perfect way to say “Mom, you are amazing! Look at this beautiful family you have created!”.

We are giving away 3 discounts to the first customers who book
a spring photo session or purchase a gift certificate for Mother’s Day.
Hurry and email us or call 201.540.9779 to receive a $200 print credit.

The spring landscape is luscious, colorful, and the mood is just right for capturing beautiful moments of your family. Flowers fade away as quickly as they blossom so there is no time to wait. Spring was our absolute favorite time to shoot last year which is one of the many reasons we are so anxious to get outside and do what we do best! Not to mention the cabin fever we are all suffering from over the longest winter EVER. We discovered amazing new locations including mansions, gardens, farms and forests that are glorious in the Spring. So please contact us for a fun photo session.

If you did not receive our newsletter and wish to sign up please let us know via email and we’d be happy to add you to our list.

Constantine Maroulis + Angel Reed Introduce Daughter Malena James

In February we got a call from Constantine Maroulis and Angel Reed to schedule a photo shoot for their 8 week young, gorgeous little baby.  We were absolutely ecstatic to meet the Rock of Ages stars and photograph this special time in their life.  You may also know Constantine from American Idol Season 4.  Constantine and Angel were wonderful subjects but I have to say that Malena stole the show with her big, brown wide open eyes.

Constantine called last week with the wonderful news that People Magazine had the exclusive to publish the first pictures of Malena and they wanted to use our photos.  Yay!  The next day People called and four days later the issue was released.  Geesh they work fast!

Be sure to check out the April 4th issue which will be on the stands until this Thursday.  And if you miss the publication you can find it on People.com

Congratulations to the proud and loving parents, Constantine and Angel, on your sweet little girl.  It was a pleasure to photograph your family.

I have no word to describe your blog.

They are just beautiful.

Are these pictures available in form of Postcards?

Thank you so much for these beautiful pictures!

Toddler Photo Session: Bergen County NJ

Ok so this was a first – Eric took the first few photos in our YARD!  Wow, who knew our neglected backyard would be so beautiful.  Aiden and his parents were return clients from last year and that always makes us so happy.  Although, I cannot believe that the baby we photographed last year has turned into this sweet little boy so quickly.  I can’t imagine Marlie toddling around in such a short time.  But it’s bound to happen I suppose.  Thank you to our lovely clients who see the value in our photography and enjoy coming back to us year after year.  With much gratitude, Brooke and Eric! Be Creative Photography

Bill Baker - Really beautiful moments with this little guy. And you captured him so sharply! He looks like he was active and you got him well.

Welcome Shannon! Newborn photo session in Bergen County

When baby Shannon was born I was busting at the seams to get over to my friends to meet her.  Afterall, she is the newest member of our hood and Marlie’s future bff.  I was able to meet her today – 7 days old and so precious I could melt.  I didn’t tell mom and dad that I was bringing my camera.  I didn’t want them to feel any pressure to dress up, clean the house etc.  I’m so happy with this impromptu photo session!  What a perfect little subject.  Congratulations Sean and Liz!  Shannon is one special, little girl.

Harry Who - Lovely pictures. Can’t get enough of those sleeping baby pictures. So cute.

Ruth Silver - Such a beautiful family! You did an amazing job with the portrait session. What a cutie!

Deedra & Dennis Dowling - What a precious little angel! Congratulations again.

Barbara Buckles - What great pictures and what a BEAUTIFUL Family
