South Jersey Photographer :: Tygh Family Portraits

I love that Jill found me online. Googling “Photographers in Mullica Hill”…. and my website came up! We’ve lived here 3 years now; SEO is finally on my side! And it was love at first email.

Being a boy mom myself, I knew her little family would be so fun to work with. And I was right. From the first moment, we were hand in hand, “off to an adventure” and taking photos while we explored. Big brother was patient and loving, and such a good example to his little brother. We walked in the park together, and grabbed a number of spots along the way. Can’t forget their favorite part of the park: the playground!

I love that my husband got a job at Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ to bring us back east to the beautiful fall leaves. The leaves are just starting to change, and I love the golden tones of the last set in this portrait session. Washington Lake Park is a goldmine for photographers. <3

A lot of families, especially with young kids are hesitant to do photos with a professional photographer. There can be a lot of anxiety investing that much money without knowing if your little angels will turn into little monkeys. But here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Choose a photographer whose style you love. If they can get genuine smiles from lots and lots and LOTS of clients, chances are, they’ll do just fine with yours too.
  • Figure out what is important to you to remember this time in your life. Do you want an album they can hold in their hands, and sit with you to look at when they’re 16 and a budding adult? Do you want all the digital images to put in the cloud so they’ll never be lost? Find a photographer offering what you know is important to you.
  • These sweet/crazy/awesome/wild kids will never EVER be this small again. Don’t put off recording their little hands, their shoes, their crooked smiles. My oldest is 12 and my baby is now 4, and I will forever be grateful to the family photos that I have had done over the years. My children will always know who they are and where they came from. We are FAMILY.

Love what you see here? Let’s chat.

Do you love these images? Do you feel like we could already be friends, just from reading my words? You’re probably right 😉 I often travel for family sessions, personal branding (for businesses), so even if you’re not out here near Philadelphia, PA or Mullica Hill, NJ, shoot me a message! I can’t wait to hear from you.

Can’t wait to meet you, my new friend.

Born in Denver, CO and raised in Upstate New York, I have traveled the world and now happily live near Mullica Hill, NJ in South Jersey with my 3 boys and baby girl on 4 acres of woods. I've enjoyed shooting since 2001, officially becoming a business in 2006. Although photography brings me much joy, I try to find ways to craft and create in other mediums too!
