Our gallery is located in the quaint coastal town of Brielle on the Jersey Shore and specializes in Children and Family Portraiture, as well as portrait oil paintings. Whether you choose a portrait on the soft sand by the ocean or a Creative Gallery Portrait, we will capture the unique and beautiful relationship of your family.
An appointment is set to meet with Theresa and discuss the type of look and feel of the portrait. Part of the creative process is color and tones of the clothing as well as the location, and where it will compliment and adorn the walls of your home. We start with the end in mind. After careful planning, an appointment will be reserved to create your first step... creating your portrait by camera study.
Whether you are a new client or a long-time client, a design appointment is very important. This is where the planning and fun begins. We make an appointment for you to visit our gallery to plan in advance all that is involved for your portrait. We believe in learning about you, your family including your tastes and styles, and your home decor. Clothing options will also be discussed at this point. You will view a beautiful presentation set to music through a large screen projection which will inspire further ideas for your portrait. At this time, we will choose a convenient day for your portrait and everything will be planned so your special day will run smoothly.
VIEW & CHOOSE
After your camera study, a "View & Choose" appointment will be scheduled for you and your loved ones. This will take place during a a convenient time for you; approximately one week from your session. At this time, you will enjoy a slideshow of your images via large screen projection. (We do not supply paper proofs, CD's, or internet display or digital files)
GALLERY SESSION FEES START AT $175
OUTDOOR LOCATION SESSION FEES START AT $250 (photos not included)

I treasure the family picture you took many years ago when my crew was so young . Now they have blessed me with grandchildren and it’s so time for a new picture to treasure .just beautiful work Theresa!
There's and Michael are superior photographers. I can't say enough good things about them!!
I have now worked with Theresa twice! Each time has been such an amazing experience. She is efficient, friendly, funny, energetic, and is clear and concise with her directions. She's always creative and innovative with her posing, and she makes you feel at ease from the moment you walk in the door. Then once you see the product of her creative eye, you are always blown away. She has done an outstanding job on both of my visits and exceeded my expectations, and I could not possibly recommend her anymore! More...

Teresa Artigas is an amazing Photographer! Creative and Professional. I highly recommend them. They capture life's special moments with a great eye!
Stunning photography, I recommend her Highly! I always go to her for my portraits. Theresa has such great imaginings.
I went to Theresa to do a boudir shoot for my fiancé for our wedding. I was completely nervous. I went in for a consultation. I met with her assistant Jen. Sweetest girl. So nice. She showed me ideas with the albums for outfits and ideas. She told me about a good place for outfits and gave me a 10% off coupon for the outfits. The next week I met with Theresa. She was so nice that you forget you're even half dressed! I honestly had such a good time. I was in a bit of a rush to get my album for my wedding so they assured me that they would help me out. We picked out all my photos for my album. It was so hard to go down to 20 pictures! I wish I could keep them all! They are amazing. I would recommend anyone to go her! I will probably go back for another one in a few years. She's amazing and so welcoming and nice! Thank you so much Jen and Theresa! More...

I have been going to Theresa Artigas for portraits for over ten years. Her talent never ceases to amaze me as she has captured memories of my family that I will treasure forever. From baby pictures to communion portraits, she can take a moment and freeze it in time for you to hold on to for a lifetime. Currently, she is transitioning into painting and again, she excels in capturing the beauty in her subject. An absolute joy to work with. More...
I used Theresa Artigas Photography for a Sexy Amore boudoir shoot. I went in for a consultation prior to the photo shoot to pick out backgrounds and talk about outfits. I was assisted by one of Theresa's younger trainees and she showed me a slideshow of what other women have done at their shoots. It gave me lots of great ideas!The photo shoot was great! I've never had a photo shoot before and Theresa made me feel extremely comfortable even though I was in my underwear. The sets were great and there were about five or six to choose from. After the photo shoot and the photos had been edited, I came back to the studio one more time to pick out the pictures I wanted to put in my book. The pictures came out so good!I would definitely recommend Theresa and I will definitely return next time I need a portrait done. More...
