Love Notes

Cassandra and Renee are two amazing talents. They have been capturing my family since before my son was born at my baby shower, and over 3 years later my walls are filled with the most beautiful photographs from them! They are patient, and caring, they have become part of our family and are always around to capture our biggest milestones and life events. From event photography, to our outdoor, indoor, holiday and fresh 48 sessions, our experience is always organic, fun, and comfortable. I have recommended them to countless friends and family over the years and everyone is hooked once they experience a session and receive their photos! They are our family photographers and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Their studio is beautiful, comfortable, and filled with props, backdrops, and outfits. They have everything you need for a wonderful session. Thank you both for being the best to us, and for always going above and beyond for your clients!

Cassie and Renee are amazing at their craft! The studio has everything you can think of and it is comfortable for the parents in the waiting room – so comfortable that my husband took a catnap! They are patient, professional, and have such a care for their clients. The pictures from the newborn shoot are AMAZING! I can’t get enough and my family is obsessed with them. These memories are captured for a lifetime Thank you Giella Barbara!

I was very impressed by Cassandra and Renee during the photoshoot. They had great ideas for poses and outfits/wraps/props and were great at directing myself and my husband in the family shot to make sure we took the best photos. They are pros at calming and soothing a newborn in order to get them into the adorable poses. In fact, my husband and I ended up using some of their techniques to calm our daughter when she gets fussy at home. I also liked how they didn’t charge separately for their digital images, unlike other photographers in the area. We are very pleased with the photos that resulted from the photoshoot and would highly recommend them to others.

We’ve worked with Giella Barbara Photography 4 times now. A maternity shoot, newborn shoot, a holiday shoot & another newborn/family shoot. I just can’t trust the special moments to anyone else. (I only wish I knew them when our first child was born). They are so fantastic – SO talented, so sweet & offer such a comprehensive experience. You really can’t beat it. So grateful that I’ll have their gorgeous photos to treasure forever & look forward to having them capture more magic at our next shoot.

Our most recent photo shoot with Giella Barbara Photography, by far has been my favorite. This speaks volumes because I have loved each and every shoot with them for all different reasons. I reached out to the ladies wanting to capture the essence of childhood memories. We decided on our favorite spot.. ” The Backyard” and had an amazing time playing with bubbles, hula hoops, baseballs, ice-pops, sprinklers, and chalk. Cassie & Renee have developed such a beautiful relationship with our children over the years. We never feel stressed or rushed, and our final product is always 10 times better than I envision. I HIGHLY recommend Giella Barbara Photography to ALL of my friends and family. From start to finish the professionalism, support, and over-all experience is always astounding! Thank you again for documenting our Crazy, Chaotic, and Beautiful Life!

Cassie and Renee are amazing. I’m in awe of their talent, patience and creativity. They took my daughter’s newborn photos in 2016, and we just went back for my son’s photos this past September. Their photography studio is warm and comfortable, with refreshments and a tv to occupy older children while the session is taking place. The props and outfits that they use are absolutely adorable, and it’s incredible to watch their creative process. I’m thrilled with my gallery and will cherish the moments they captured with my family.

Working with Renee and Cassie was an absolute pleasure! From preseason to postsession their professionalism and raw talent was obvious. Choosing a photographer for your newborn isn’t always easy because you can never get those moments back. But working with Giella Barbara Photogrpahy makes the experience effortkess mand truly enjoyable. I loved that they have a full wardrobe of quality outfits to choose from and were able to pick up on my style so quickly. They managed to keep my little girl calm for almost three hours, and even changed her diaper when she needed it.. and then let me know her diaper changes so I could keep track. I couldn’t have hoped for a better experience and look forward to doing future sessions with them!

Such an amazing experience from start to finish! We worked with Renee for our daughter’s newborn photo shoot and she was so caring and gentle with her. Not only were they amazing with the baby, they even entertained our 3 year old and managed to get some amazing giggly shots of him. The pictures came out better than I could have ever imagined, our family and friends have been raving about them. Last but not least, Tara, their assistant, is on top of it! Communication was excellent and she was helpful every step of the way. Can’t say enough good things about these ladies. Pick them, can’t go wrong!!

I can’t say enough good things about Giella Barbara Photography! I got the package that includes newborn, sitter and 1 year photographs and I’m very happy with my decision to do so. Renee and Cassandra warmly welcomed my new family into their studio and made the experience very calm and pleasant. My son was a bit fussy the day of and as a new Mom , it was easy to get stressed out! They calmed my son down and were able to capture the most perfect pictures . They are both very artistic and even though my vision was quite simple with few props, they were able to deliver exactly what I wanted. The pictures came out gorgeous and they look beautiful in my home. I am excited for my future sessions with them in the upcoming year and for family sessions years to come! Thank you Renee and Cassandra!

Once again I am blown away by Giella Barbara Photography! The level of professionalism and passion for what they do is second to none. We have had several photo shoots with Cassie and Renee and each time we are just amazed by the moments they’ve capture of our daughter. This past session, her cake smash, was not only STUNNING (the set up, the decor, the cake, the outfits, I could go on and on) but so much fun! Thank you for helping us savor these precious moments.

A friend had referred me to Giella Barbara Photography and I am so glad she did. We had a great experience for our photo shoot. My 18 mo old was acting up a bit and they knew exactly what to do to calm him down and capture some really great photos of him with my newborn despite his ‘attitude’! I was so impressed and am really happy I purchased the newborn, sitter and 1 yr package so that they can help me to capture my little ones grow over the next year. They were both easy going and super professional and I would recommend them highly!
Lauren Rodabaugh

These ladies are amazing. I came to them with my one month old twins who had just been released from he NICU the week before and they put me at ease from minute one. Not only did they handle my babies with love and care ( they fed them for me too!) they got the most amazing shots. They even managed to get my husband and six year old to smile! The pictures are beautiful memories of our twin edition to our family. Thank you ladies for your wonderful work.

Renee and Cassie are simply amazing! After seeing some of the newborn photos they did for friends, we knew they were who we wanted to do our photos too. At our consult, they not only took the time to understand who was going to be in the photos (siblings, pets, etc), but also the style and colors we were looking for, and the decor in the rooms where we would potentially be displaying the photos. The day of the shoot, they made sure the whole family was comfortable — extra warm temperature in the rooms where our newborn was going to be photographed, and a bit cooler in the room where the rest of the family was relaxing (eating snacks, playing with toys and watching cartoons). They made sure that every position they placed our baby girl in, both looked good visually AND were safe for her to be in. They took their time with us, and were completely understanding (and even recommended) when I needed to nurse our daughter. We just had our photo reveal meeting, and are absolutely in love with the final results — the newborn photos, the sibling photos, and the family photos came out better than we could have hoped for!

Beyond amazing experience with Giella Barbara. Their professionalism is unsurpassed. They walk you through the process step by step and make you feel extremely comfortable. There are no surprises you get EXACTLY what you want.
The studio is so cozy with refreshments and television to keep busy during the shoot in between takes. The sets are totally customized before hand to your taste so that they work quickly and efficiently, because little ones tire quickly. Cassie was beyond patient when my little guy did not want to take a pic. The end result is literally like a work of art! Priceless pictures to cherish for a lifetime. Because they work with you to find your exact style you cannot go wrong! Our pictures were classic with a modern twist and I was speechless when they sent over our gallery reveal. Bottom line you can’t go wrong with Giella Barbara – they make your dream shoot a reality!

We had wonderful experience working with Giella Barbara Photography which started from inquiring about birthday pictures, to our phone consultation to plan the cake smash theme, to feeling like family when we arrived for our session, the fun we had in the session itself, and finally the preview presentation a week later. Giella Barbara photography exceeded our expectations with our vintage travel theme cake smash session! Renee took absolutely beautiful pictures of our family, our Giulia Antonia, and truly captured the essence of “Our Greatest Adventure.” Each picture was more beautiful than the next, that it brought tears to my eyes. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing such a special moment in time for us!!! We will definitely be using Giella Barbara Photography to capture all of our future memories!! – Jennifer, Gene & Giulia Antonia

Having Giella Barbara Photography take pictures of my newborn and family was the best decision ever! Their talent and passion is definitely seen throughout the pre session, during the session, and post session. They took their time and were very patient from beginning to end. Both photographers were also great with my 3 1/2 year old (active) boy. I would highly recommend Giella Barbara Photography to anyone who is looking beautiful, timeless, and unique photos that will be kept for a lifetime.
Sabina Sessa

Cassandra and Renee are absolutely wonderful. The quality of their work is incredible. These ladies have pure talent. They have true compassion for what they do and it shines through their beautiful pictures, gorgeous studio and professionalism. Cassandra and Renne took the most precious pictures of our baby and of our family. They were kind, loving and patient with our little girl and we cannot thank them enough. We will cherish these pictures for all the years to come. Joey, Gianna and I are looking forward to having them capture our growing family over the years. We HIGHLY recommend Giella Barbara Photography.
Jessica Macchione

Most definitely the best photography experiences we have had. From setting up the appointment, giving our vision to seeing it all happen was seamless and more than we could have hoped. Renee and Cassandra’s professionalism and expertise speaks for itself in their pictures. Behind the scenes, they were warm, loving and patient to my baby and made her (and my family) very comfortable throughout the session. I couldn’t have hoped for a better experience and I look forward to having them capture more amazing pictures of my family in the future.
