CENTRAL NEW JERSEY'S PREMIER NEWBORN & FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER IN WALL, NJ
MATERNITY | MOTHERHOOD | MILESTONE
Greater Joy Portrait Studio is a newly launched sister company to the well-loved Kristen Barker Photography & Design™
We create the most beautiful pictures of the people that are most important to you.
My family and I are taking the social distancing and self-isolating very seriously. My primary concern in this crazy, yet temporary, time is my family’s heath, and YOUR family’s health.
As it is, I am postponing all upcoming sessions until non-essential services are permitted again.
When we hear that we can start work/life as normal, I will happily work countless days in a row to get everyone in in a timely manner.
Stay home, stay safe! And let’s stay in touch.
Whether you are expecting a new child or preparing one for graduation, we know just how much these moments matter to you, and just how quickly they come to pass. This is why we photograph with the highest regard for the outcome, celebrating each milestone with an unforgettable portrait experience, and preserving each timeless image in print, for you to love now and treasure always.
Hi, mama! I'm Kristen.
I am a wife, mother of 3, and a published maternity, newborn and family portrait photographer based out of Wall, NJ.
For over 10 years, I have had the honor of photographing for hundreds and hundreds of moms and their families. I am so passionate about creating gorgeous portraits of your pregnancy, your baby, your family, and YOU, and to providing a luxurious experiences that makes it easy to have printed memories of the moments you wish could last forever.
My love for documenting life with portraits goes back to childhood when I received a little yellow 35mm for my sixth birthday. Years later, I was a young mom and owned a dance studio. I wanted to learn how to take pictures of my son with a blurred background, and capture sharp images of my ballerinas leaping. I purchased a DSLR and began practicing daily. Soon after, I had business cards and in 2010, started a family photography business.
we begin with the end in mind. Every portrait session starts with a plan of what the final outcome will be. I will guide you as we consider where you will display your portraits, your home decor and color preferences, and how you want to see these priceless photographs 5, 10, 20 years from now. The result is always a simple, enjoyable experience that gives you exactly what you hoped for - a timeless piece of printed art for you and all the people you love.
Our breathtaking studio located in Wall Township is now open!
After nearly a decade, it's time to begin a new chapter and continue doing what I absolutely love in ways I couldn't prior.
Kristen Barker Photography & Design is now a "big sister" company to a newer, luxury brand that speaks even deeper from my heart and provides superior service and breathtaking keepsakes for you to display your images.
Our beautiful space was carefully designed for you and your family's comfort, complete with a dedicated area for professional hair and makeup services, a roomy and comfortable observation lounge that doubles into a viewing room to view your gorgeous portraits for the first time, convenient kitchen amenities, including a microwave, refrigerator and Nespresso machine, as well as a large studio area cozy enough for the tiniest newborn subjects and expansive enough to accommodate extended families - and a vintage claw-foot tub!
As you have shared your journey with me to capture for you, I am so excited to share this part of my journey with you.
It's not too late to schedule a personalized portrait session to commemorate the achievements of your child's high school or college experience. KBP&D will guide you in the styling, location and timing of the session to create timeless images you and your family will cherish for a lifetime.
