Kristy Abellar, of Gigglebug Photography by Kristy, is paving the way for professional birth photography in the state of New Jersey. Kristy is a member of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers and is one of the first female professional birth photographers in New Jersey. In celebration of the grand opening of Gigglebug Photography by Kristy, all birth story sessions booked through the end of 2010 will be discounted by $200 off the regular birth story session prices!!
Most expectant mothers in New Jersey are not aware that professional photography during their labor and the birth of their child is a possibility. But birth story photography has been around for quite a while and is quite popular in other areas of the country.
Birth Photography provides an amazing opportunity to capture the first moments of your new child’s life. It is a photojournalistic experience and all moments captured are true and authentic first moments. Your first touch, the expression on your face, the reaction of family members – all of these moments are priceless and are over in the blink of an eye. Kristy strives to capture them in all their authenticity and preserve them as a keepsake for you and your child to have forever.
About Birth Photography, in Kristy’s own words:
“It is truly amazing to witness a child being born. I have three young children of my own, so I know all about going through labor– the fear, panic, excitement, and joy you seem to feel all at once. My goal is to be unobtrusive. I am not there to pass judgements, or even to look at anything private and graphic. I’m simply there to capture your journey as you bring your child into the world. You don’t have to look wonderful, or even be concerned with that because this is your authentic story. Captured for you and your child.” “I actually do not photograph anything graphic. My emphasis is on relationships and emotions.” “These are amazing moments to be able to show to your child…your expression as you first saw him, your hands reaching out to touch him for the first time, grandparents holding him for the first time; it’s all so priceless and beautiful!”
In addition to birth photography, Gigglebug Photography by Kristy also offers family portraiture, including Jersey Shore beach sessions and special themed portrait sessions. Sessions are held on-location at your home, a park, or the beach. “Most people don’t realize that their own backyard or living room can be more than adequate for a photo session!” Kristy remarks. All session prices include digital files. “It is important to me that my clients are able to have the images I take. That’s the entire point of me taking the pictures in the first place!” Kristy replies. Kristy is available for sessions within 2.5 hours of the Jersey Shore area. Please contact her for more specific travel details.
Kristy is a graduate of Rutgers University and a certified elementary school teacher. “I used to teach second grade, but resigned when it became too emotionally difficult to balance out my full-time work life with raising my babies,” Kristy says. Kristy has always had a talent for capturing authentic moments and has been studying photography for the past few years. “The beauty of life lies in the tiniest of details and interactions…a daddy reaching out to hold his child’s hand, the giggles between siblings, those are the precious moments in life that I strive to capture.” “Our children grow so fast, and these tiny moments are so fleeting. You don’t get a second chance to preserve these moments.”
