Every great dream begins with a dreamer

Specializing in children, maternity and family photography

Welcome to shooting Star PHotography! 

WHere we bring magic to life. BRinging almost over 7 years of magic and even teaching other photographers! We service the Philadelphia, new jersey and delaware region.Our studio is out of Haddon township,  New Jersey.

We are the music makers and the dreamers of dreams.

Our goal is Happy Clients!

Hi there, Dream client!!! I am so glad you appreciate good art! I totally believe in leading you through the shoot with fun prompts (and we get that perfect smiling shot at the beginning of the shoot while we have the kids attention!) but I make it fun and not a chore for the kids- speaking from experience, my kids need direction too, or they get bored and whiny quick. I’ve also been known to pretend to hit myself in the head just to get a smile from the more stubborn ones, haha!

I fully customize styling prior to the session so we know your color palette will work great with the location.

I specialize in offering a full service photography experience. I send style guide/wardrobe suggestions and can have a consult in studio or via zoom to discuss details, if you like. I can also mock up your images on your own walls to help you choose your wall art and how you want to display it (framed, canvas, wood prints, etc..).


life is full of magic!

Sometimes we need a little music... in our lives.
