Summer Sun captured on the beautiful Jersey Shore.


Nothing feels quite as good as a day on the beach.  Shine Bright Studios specializes in family beach portraits.  Our location is just a half mile from the beach. 

Many families also choose to have their photographs taken at their home or another location where they enjoy time together.  Fun photo shoot location ideas I have done for families in the past have included on a sailboat, in a stable, in a park, at an athletic event, while skiing, while on vacations, at a birthday party, and at family reunions.




Headshots: studio and natural light


First impressions and the ability to grab someone's attention is critical in today’s market. Those few seconds are priceless.

When you present yourself in the market, you want to grab attention and leave an impression. My goal is to capture your image in a way that will leave the most impactful and lasting effect from the very first glance. Whether your headshot is intended for modeling, acting, personal branding, or professional development, we will collaborate together to create the right image that suits your needs. When I hold the camera I am your biggest fan and I will help you find a captivating moment that is uniquely and remarkably...You.  As a photographer, I see a headshot as more than a portrait, it is an impression of trust and approachability.  Full service and mini sessions are available.



A collaboration with a local business is a win-win for tweens and retail store



Shine Bright Studios has been partnering with Moon Child Boutique in Fair Haven, New Jersey since its opening 3 years ago.  Each month local tweens enter a raffle in hopes of being selected to model for the store.  The larger-than-life posters are featured in the store and the girls' images are used in advertising.  The coveted photo shoot is the "real deal" with music and clothing changes.  Each girl is invited back a few days later to be treated to a personal slideshow of just her images.  There is no obligation to buy anything.  However, many of the families select a souvenir book to celebrate the experience.


To Be Bright:  NYC Fashion Blogger is a NYC fashion blog. Tilden collaborates with major brands such as Henri Bendel, Hamilton Watches, Macy's, AT&T, ASOS, Nike, Absolut Vodka, Steve Madden, Rebecca Minkoff, West Elm, and Coach.  High-profile companies such as these expect and demand excellent imagery to promote their brands.  Shine Bright Studios has been entrusted to capture creative and beautiful lifestyle images for

Interior Design, Staging, and Real Estate Images


Selling a house is much more than selling four walls.  You are offering a new home to a family.  Artistic photographs that allude warmth and capture a home's unique character will set your listing apart.

Capturing the interiors is an art.  Lighting and perspectives can be tricky and the right equipment is essential to capturing the best images.  Shine Bright Studios is equipped with the best cameras, lenses, supplemental lighting, and knowledge to capture any situation.  Services include High Definition Range (HDR) images that can capture the interior and through-the-window views simultaneously, corrective perspectives and straightening for wide angles, and white balancing to correct for yellowing tungsten lighting.  We also possess advanced photoshop skills that can enhance your images.

Packages include a full set of optimized digital files, sideshow and copyright.

Here is an example of how we can use photoshop to enhance an Image:

Equestrian and Pet 

I grew up on a large horse farm in Colts Neck, New Jersey.  From fox hunting with the Monmouth County Hunt to photographing at the Winter Equestrian Festival near Palm Beach, horses are still part of my everyday life.  Be sure to drive by Little Silver Animal Hospital to see our 8-foot tall images in the windows.  As a person who is comfortable with all sorts of animals, I love capturing the special bond between owners and their pets.

The Monmouth County Hunt Club has kept the spirt of fox hunting alive for 128 years

We are so excited about our newest collaboration with Lotus Way and with By George Baby in Fair Haven, New Jersey.

Kathy Goullet the proprietor of Lotus Way, has impeccable taste.  I love her collection of sumptuous cashmere sweaters and wraps in yummy colors.  She also has a wonderful selection of jewelry and gift items -- all perfect for that special occasion.  Kathy Swan, the owner of By George Baby, has a charming selection of toddler and baby clothes.  The new location is in the Lotus Way store.  It was so fun to use her beautiful granddaughters as models.  Be sure to stop in as we will be having some promotions with both stores, including a raffle for a Family Photography Session!
