newborn baby girl in rose pink alyssa joy photography New Jersey

My husband and I could not be happier that we selected Alyssa for our newborn photo shoot! Given the covid situation, Alyssa made us feel very comfortable by taking every precaution seriously to keep herself and us safe before/during/after our shoot. Alyssa welcomed us into her lovely new studio and had various color schemes and accessories – blankets, props, headbands, etc. – ready for us to choose from for our photos. Our baby girl was around 1 month old for the session, making her a little “older” than the typical timing for newborn photos, and Alyssa was so kind and patient in working to adjust her in the best positions. Alyssa was very professional and detail-oriented, taking her time with each shot to ensure it was perfect; she also demonstrated a lot of grace in dealing with our baby’s bathroom mishaps. We love the final photos we received; they are so beautiful and have become instant family treasures. We’re so grateful to have captured our sweet girl during her first days of life and have Alyssa to thank!

Alyssa is everything you could want in a personal family photographer. When our daughter was born in April, it was not possible for us to move ahead with our scheduled newborn shoot due to covid concerns and restrictions. Here we are a few months later, and Alyssa went above and beyond to make sure we were able to schedule a lifestyle shoot in our home! Alyssa is wonderful to work with. Her portfolio speaks for itself in quality, style, and talent, but most importantly she made sure that our photos captured this special time of bringing our daughter home. Can't wait to work with her again in the future!

I recently worked with Alyssa to do a newborn shoot for my son and could not be happier with the results! She truly gave us photos that we will cherish forever. I cannot wait to get them framed and on the wall in my house (& sent out on Holiday cards)!
Alyssa went out of her way to do an introductory call with me to explain her photography style and all the props we had the option of picking from before I booked her. The day of the shoot went seamlessly and she had a ton of options to pick from to style the photos. She is very professional and truly has a gift working with newborns.
When our photos came back it was hard to choose our top 10 as they were all so good! I definitely recommend Alyssa and already plan to work with her again for all of my future children!!

The name says it all! She was a JOY to work with! When we first arrived she had a sign welcoming our baby girl, which set the tone for our amazing shoot. She was beyond prepared, and had set up tons of props, headbands, swaddles, and much more. Everything looked so beautiful. We had discussed a special prop for my little girl, and I kid you not....Alyssa ordered it special and then tracked down the FedEx man to make sure it was there in time for the shoot!! She was so patient with our baby, and I felt so comfortable leaving my two week old in her charge. Needless to say my husband and I (and the whole family) were in awe of the beautiful moments Alyssa was able to capture. These pictures are a snapshot of a moment in time that is so special to us, and she 100% understood that. It was worth every penny, and I am so glad we did this shoot! I will be using her again, and I seriously suggest you do too!

Alyssa was an absolute pleasure to work with - super friendly

our daughter's life.

Our experience with Alyssa was amazing in every way. From the minute we got to her in home studio, Alyssa made us feel so comfortable and effortlessly connected with our 2 week old son. Alyssa is a natural when it comes to newborns— she was so gentle and patient with our fussy baby which allowed her to capture the most unbelievable photos of him that we will cherish for a lifetime. Alyssa has such a sweet, calming, professional demeanor and is unbelievably talented. We couldn’t be happier with our experience and are so thankful we found such an amazing photographer to capture this most special time in our life!

For newborn session we visited Alyssa's home studio .My baby was awake as soon we reach the studio and Alyssa was so patient and helped us calm our baby.She took all our requests/ideas and every picture came out so well.We are so pleased with Alyssa's newborn photography.

Alyssa is a true artist. She is able to capture the emotion in a moment and it shines through in each photograph.

Alyssa did such an excellent job with our daughter's newborn photoshoot. Particularly since our baby was very squirmy and she was extremely patient with her and us. She makes the environment welcoming and inviting. We will forever have those memories to cherish. Look forward to having Alyssa document our daughters growth in the years to come!!!

Highly recommend her. She has a lot of accessories which is great since I was very unprepared being a first time parent.

We have worked with Alyssa twice and she is an amazing photographer!
She is the real deal--a true artist, ranking well above and beyond other photographers in terms of the beauty of imagery she captures and style of imagery. She is very professional and patient and her attention to detail and camera "eye" are unbelievable. You will get the most amazing memories to have forever.

We loved our experience with Alyssa! With our active 5 and 2 years old children, she was able to adjust and get the best out of them throughout our session. Perhaps most noteworthy was the ease we had in working with her. We look forward to sharing future milestones with her.

I have used professional photographers before, but I have never had the experience I had with Alyssa. To meet someone who so genuinely cares about the pictures she takes and the families she photographs, is so refreshing—Alyssa made us all feel so comfortable during our photo session. When we were presented with our photos and gallery, we were completely blown away. The talent that Alyssa has is tremendous, and I am so sincerely happy to say that we will always be using alyssa joy photography to capture our family.

Let me begin by saying that I was on the fence about getting newborn photos done beyond the photos taken at the hospital. But after just giving birth to our first child and staring at our little piece of perfection, I knew it was an opportunity that I could not pass up. By a stroke of luck, I found alyssa joy photography and boy am I glad that I did. Our photo session
together was very memorable. My baby was 3wks old and by photography standards that is beyond the ideal newborn phase. I was so nervous that he wouldn’t stay still long enough for a good photo shoot. Alyssa was professional and extremely patient with my baby (and me too!). She took her time, had a very soothing affect on my little guy, and without a doubt she went the extra mile for us.

Our photos turned out absolutely amazing as a result. I truly admire the work that she did and there’s not a single day that I regret my decision to work with her. I would highly recommend alyssa joy photography to anyone who is looking to capture the same moment in time. I can’t wait to work with her again in the future!

Alyssa was fantastic! My baby was born early and in the middle of winter. As a result, she worked with me to create a custom at-home session that I was comfortable with. The morning of the shoot she arrived early and took absolutely gorgeous pictures of my daughter. After the shoot Alyssa was always in touch with teaser photos and access to my custom gallery. I have gotten so many compliments on the photos and birth announcement. Thank you again Alyssa!

Alyssa is professional, gentle and truly gifted at capturing the most tender, beautiful pictures. The day was so enjoyable and the pictures prove it. I’d give 5+ stars and HIGHLY recommend her to anyone for capturing these precious moments is our lives. Xo She made it happen with ease with my daughter who is 8 weeks old, which can be very difficult to do! I look forward to many more photo sessions in our future with her!
