Hi! I am Tamara…

I am the photographer behind the Lullabies for Josephine Photography lens. Born and raised in a beautiful island called Puerto Rico, now living in Lincoln Park, NJ. 

Five years ago I had the biggest blessing of my life, giving birth to my rainbow baby twins, Michael & Alexia! Instead of returning to work, I decided to stay home with my babies. Soon after, I started a hobby that developed into a newborn photography prop store named Arcadia Lullabies. I truly loved being creative and designing outfits and accessories for little squishy babies! But, with that came my curiosity and hunger to learn more and more about newborn and family photography. It is fascinating to me how capturing a moment with my camera can be so similar to paint on a canvas like I did when I studied at a school for art gifted students back in PR. So, with the help and support of many friends and my beloved husband I decided to start my photography journey.  Every day I get to know new families that honor me with the beautiful task of photographing all their milestones from maternity to babies to even the whole extended family!

Who is Josephine?

The name of my studio comes from my grandmother Josefina. She was one of the most loving people I have ever known. She was always trying to help people and make them smile.  I wanted to honor her name and her spirit. Every time I make my clients smile with my photos I feel it’s a lullaby I am singing to her, making her proud of who I have become following her guidance, values and wisdom.

Love note

Wow! Nothing short of amazing! The overall experience we had with Tamara was fantastic. The level of professionalism, skills and expertise was top notch. She is super responsive and accommodating and gives you a great understanding of what to expect for the shoot. The way she handled our newborn was comforting and something only a seasoned mother will be able to naturally do. During the shoot she shows so much patience and care and makes the experience very pleasurable even for a frustrating task of constantly trying to pose a newborn into the most perfect positions.. then to top it off you get these absolutely stunning photos as an end product!! I’m a photographer myself who also had my own studio, but newborn photography has a level of skill and patience many folks can’t replicate but Tamara is as good as they get and going through this experience I have a whole new level of respect for. We have amazing photos that our friends and family are in awe with and memories for a lifetime that our son will surely appreciate in the future. Thank-you so much Tamara
