The first few weeks of my son’s life feel like a sleepless blur, but there are few moments that I will remember for the rest of my life. One of those moments is the day he had his newborn pictures taken with Jena Rae. I knew I had to preserve his tiny little feet, fingers, and that beautiful little face the best way I knew how, so I immediately started searching for a photographer. Searching “best photographer in south Jersey” led me right to Jena Rae and I am forever grateful that it did. As a new mom I had all the anxieties, worries, and fears and I cannot put into words how that all dissipated about 3 minutes after walking through the door of Jena’s studio. Something about her made me feel more comfortable with my son in her hands than I was with most family members, so comfortable that I almost fell asleep on her waiting room couch! Since then we saw her every month for his first year, for his six month pictures, one year, Halloween, and for Santa. The pictures she took have been turned into books that made my family members cry, they’ve been blown up into pictures on his grandparents walls, they have been turned into banners and posters for his birthday and baptism, they will be something we can proudly show him when he’s older and brag about to his future girlfriends after that. Jena Rae’s work has been and will always be such a huge part of our life and I can’t thank her enough for her talent and the love she shows my son every time she sees him. He loves her just as much as we do.
Thanks Jena Rae <3 you really are the best!
