"Joanne is so talented! The portraits she took of our newborn are unique, precious and priceless. She genuinely cares about getting the right shot, the "keeper", and never once got frustrated waiting patiently for our son to quiet down and settle (not even when he peed on her pretty white blanket). Joanne came to us and was prepared for anything, with several backdrops and props. She dedicated her time and was just as excited as I was when the right shot seemed to come together...she even got goosebumps! I was so touched. But words cannot say how we will treasure our portraits. I, of course, cried when we got them and didn't even recognize myself. I still don't know how she managed to pose me so I didn't look like the hormonal, sleep-deprived mom I really was just 10 days out from giving birth. We have gotten so many comments on them and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. She takes what in a chain portrait studio is a nice picture of everyone in coordinating outfits and captures instead nuances of spirit and special moments. I know the saying is: "A picture is worth a thousand words," and each of Joanne's portraits tell a story. Thank you, Joanne!"- Susan K- Cranbury, New Jersey
"Working with Joanne on my daughter's newborn photos was an absolute pleasure. My husband and I didn't realize that the optimal time to take newborn shots is within the first 2 weeks, and so our daughter was closer to 7 weeks for the shoot. She was more awake and cranky than we had hoped. Joanne was so patient and never got frustrated at the fact that we were almost 3 hours into it before a single picture could be taken. She stuck with us through multiple feedings, diaper changes and a crying, fussy baby. Joanne was completely professional, but was also so warm and caring that she jumped right in to help us soothe and calm our daughter. She had so many options for us to choose from in terms of props and backgrounds, and captured so many beautiful candid and posed shots. In the end, the photos were so beautiful and beyond our expectations. We look forward to working with her again as our daughter grows!" Tiffany C.~ Princeton, N.J.
"BEAUTIFUL and AMAZING are just a few words I would use to describe Pierini Portraits. When I had my son, who is 3 1/2, photographed, I knew I wanted something different. Not the typical mall stylepictures. Joanne surpassed my expectations. She had such wonderful ideas for locations and pictures. Each photograph is so unique and tells a story. I truly was blown away. I received so many compliments on his pictures and everyone wanted to know where they were done! Besides each picture being great, my son had a wonderful time. Joannemade this experience so much fun and enjoyable for him. I highlyrecommend Pierini Portraits to anyone who is in search of a great photographer. Joanne is a natural and you are sure to LOVE each picture"! - Shannon Schiavi, East Windsor, NJ
"Pierini portrait artist Joanne takes photography to a whole new level. The subtly elegance and natural effortless touch that is brought to each photo makes any person who feels pretty embrace their beauty. For a good time, a great gift, and an even better feeling I definitely recommend a day with Joanne". - Rikki Pincus, East Windsor, NJ
"We found Joanne when we saw the gorgeous pictures she took of our friends daughter and we knew she was the one we wanted to take the pictures of our daughter. She didn't disappoint. The pictures were so unique and special and my daughter LOVED working with Joanne. She was so patient and a great resource for our daughter who is also interested in photography. I highly recommend Joanne for her quality of work and professionalism". - Cindy Meiskin, Robbinsville - NJ
"We LOVE our family pictures! As you know having a family picture done with kids is hard. Joanne made it easy, fun and stress-free. We highly recommend having Pierini Portraits do your pictures, she does such an amazing job!" Leah Weber- Hamilton, NJ
"We know Joanne through several photo shoots our children have done with her. We decided to do a family portrait; 6 people and a dog. It was a blast. We were positioned quickly, she kept everyone engaged including the dog and made us laugh so much that our smiles were just perfect for the pictures. Posing for pictures is not my favorite thing to do but this was a lot of fun." - Bruce Ackerman- East Windsor, NJ
"I would definately recommend having Pierini Portraits as the artist for all of your heartfelt pictures. Joanne was the artist for my daughter, Nicole, who was photographed as an incoming senior in Hightstown High School. Her pictures were awesome!!! As professional as Joanne is, she creates a very comfortable environment with the young adults, is flexible with their schedules and takes them to some very creative places to shoot! Nicole always felt extremely comfortable working with Joanne, whether she was indoors or in the middle of a corn field!! I would highly recommend Pierini Portraits to anyone looking for a creative photograper who produces AMAZING images and prints!!!" - Linda Trulby- East Windsor, NJ..
"Just wanted to thank Pierini Portraits again for the amazing photographs we received of our two little girls. Joanne did an excellent job capturing the essence of my two little girls, as individuals, and as sisters. I was really nervous. Having a newborn and a rambunctious 5 year old, I was afraid we wouldn't get good shots. Joanne was great, the session was totally relaxed, and she was really patient. I am so pleased with the photographs and I highly recommend Pierini Portraits". Nicole Carlo- Hightstown, NJ
