Hi!  It's so nice to meet you!

- Avery Brighton



I am a New Jersey and NewYork-based photographer and fortunate to be living on the beautiful North Jersey Shore.  Just an 45-minute ferry ride from Manhattan, we have the most beautiful beaches and open land.  My studio is located in a carriage house of a 1920s estate in Rumson. 

I offer a wide range of photography services focused on professionalism, creativity, high energy, and originality.  I am committed to providing the highest quality service.  My work is guaranteed, if you are not satisfied with your images we will re-shoot or, if you would rather, I will return your investment.

I believe the ideal image captures the convergence of light, moment, and composition.  And when everything aligns, it’s beautiful.  My images have been described as sun-drenched, warm, and vibrant; classic and timeless. 

 I strive to create images that capture the essence of family.  My style is modern and photo-journalistic, although, I admit, I am a sucker for the “all-smiling-and-looking-at-the-camera” family picture.  After all, I am a Mom myself who understands that you want that *one* good picture of your kids.  

Each shoot is unique and I strive to create something truly individual for every client.  As a naturally shy and un-photogenic person myself, I know it can feel uncomfortable to be in front of the camera.  My considerable experience has taught me lots of tricks and poses to make you and your family look your best.  

Shine Bright Studios has been in business for ten years.  In that time I have photographed everything from the USA Women’s National Soccer Team at the World Cup Finals in Frankfurt, Germany and Vancouver, Canada to the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington (Palm beach), Florida and many Families and Weddings in between.  All this experience has afforded me the expertise to produce beautiful high-quality images that will stand the test of time.
