  • Slideshow presentation appointment showcasing Mac’s favorite shots from your shoot.

A week after your photo shoot you will meet Mac’s wife Jennifer in their Hoboken studio to view your images and choose your favorites.  This is the moment you choose your image for your holiday cards and any other images to be created into prints for wall artworks, albums or dvd from our a la carte brochure.

Mac suggests wearing clothing in solids or subtle patterns in pastels, neutral, denim, khaki. Soft colors photograph well against the fall colors. Mom’s and girls in skirts or dresses always look pretty.

He also suggests not to match up..ie don’t all wear khaki or deinim bottoms, mix the colors and textures up a bit. Toning and co-ordinating is good. Most important that you all feel comfortable and at your best.

Day time makeup is perfect.

Blue Hill at Stone Barns

by & filed under Our Favorite Things.


Fall is the perfect time for a trip into the country and the Pocantico hills are the perfect location of the justly famous restaurant and working farm Blue Hill at Stone Barns.

The Fall festival each October was made famous when Martha Stewart judged the pie competition in 2005 & 6. Now this rural festival is firmly on the must go map! Though you need to book early for this one day event, tickets sell out a month before the date so look out for the online tickets at the beginning of September.

Parking is plentiful in surrounding fields so bundle up the kids and stroll amoungst grazing sheep and cattle, wander through greenhouses growing herbs and veggies for the restaurant kitchen. No need to tell the kids that the cute ducks, geese and chooks end up in the pot too ’cause they look so contented in their rustic surroundings. There is farmyard theatre, hayrides and ‘too die for’ BBQ  sandwishes’ along with local produce and stunning coffee and fresh baked goodies too warm you up if its still chilly out.

Stroll the grounds, browse in the quaint store or take in the pie cook off prizegiving. Whatever you choose to do its a wonderful way to get the family a little closer to nature.

Check out their website all year round for kids events.
