From commemorating spirited family vacations at the shore to welcoming the newest addition to your family in an intimate, at-home shoot, we document all of the beautiful milestones in your family's life. Our relaxed approach means that in addition to the gallery of images you receive, the sessions themselves become a treasured memory.
never forget this time in your life.
We capture romantic, soulful imagery full of light, color, and natural tones, so you can see the details and remember the feeling of each moment, forever.
Receive a one-hour session and an online gallery of high-res, edited images delivered within four to six weeks of your session date (normally about 75-100 images). Enjoy unlimited downloads or peruse our print options via your online gallery. Portrait session pricing begins at $850 to work with our team.
After you inquire via our contact page, we'll reach out to choose a date, time, location, and photographer. We’re happy to help guide you in choosing the perfect spot or selecting outfits for your family.
These sessions book quickly during the summer, so we recommend booking your session three months in advance to guarantee your date.
Once we’ve locked in the details, you’ll receive an appointment booking link and instructions for payments. Now you can sit back and relax until the day of the shoot.
On your session date, please arrive a few minutes early so we can start right on time! We schedule our sessions based on the time the sun sets to achieve the best lighting.
We love capturing candid, natural photos of you and your family, but we will provide subtle, laid-back direction to encourage you to feel comfortable, have fun, and be yourselves.
Approximately four weeks after your session date, your hi-res images will be delivered via online gallery to your email address. In your online gallery, you can download, share, and print any and all of the images. Additionally, you can choose to have a leather-bound album created or print your photos through our high-quality, professional print lab that is calibrated with our studio for exceptional results.
Over the years, our lifestyle portrait sessions have taken our team around the world to document new chapters of many past (and new!) clients’ stories. Whether it be a branded editorial for the launch of your company or an intimate, at-home session with your expanding family, we’re always open to new ideas, locations, and inspiration. We are grateful to be trusted with your story, now and always.
Our all new white and bright studio space in Ocean City, New Jersey is perfect for photographing family, branding, maternity, newborn, boudoir and other sessions.
Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, a birthday, or a family reunion, preserve your Jersey Shore summer memories with a beach portrait session. Based in Ocean City and endlessly inspired by the sand and sea, the Magdalena Studios Team adores the fun, relaxed atmosphere of sessions on the beach. We only book one family per day and there is no limit to the number of shots we will take. We have plenty of location suggestions and are happy to help guide you in choosing what to wear for your photos. While we have our favorite spots, we will travel to any location on the beaches of South Jersey. Contact us to see if a date during your stay is available!
“ONE of MY favorite THINGS ABOUT WORKING WITH MAGDALENA STUDIOS IS THEIR ABILITY TO CONNECT WITH THE PEOPLE THEY'RE CAPTURING. THEY MAKE THE SESSION fun AND RELAXED, WHICH COMES THROUGH IN THE PHOTOS.”
