Help us donate to families in need


Over the years our stu­dio has been involved in var­i­ous fundrais­ers. After con­sid­er­ing sev­eral dif­fer­ent options Mac and I have decided on Baby Buggy for 2015. Founded by Jessica Seinfeld, Baby Buggy pro­vides essen­tial cloth­ing, gear and ser­vices to fam­i­lies in need. Baby Buggy’s prod­uct dis­tri­b­u­tions are com­bined with com­pre­hen­sive social ser­vice assis­tance, such as job train­ing, finan­cial lit­er­acy classes, and par­ent­ing sup­port & edu­ca­tion. For exam­ple: A father receives a crib after par­tic­i­pat­ing in a 16-​week father­hood pro­gram that includes com­plet­ing an infant CPR class and a healthy rela­tion­ship workshop.

During the months of February, March and April we will donate the funds to pro­vide a stroller for a fam­ily in need for every ses­sion booked.

The event pack­age is $250 and includes:

*A 30 minute in stu­dio por­trait ses­sion at our Hoboken Studio

* One 8 x 10 stan­dard print

Price: $250 (a $400 value)

Clients are invited into our stu­dio to view a slideshow pre­sen­ta­tion of their images a few weeks later.

Help us enrich the lives of young fam­i­lies by sup­port­ing this fundraiser. Call us at 201−610−1199.

Hartshorn for the Community

Hoboken Photographer Helping Hands

Mac and Jennifer Hartshorn believe that sup­port­ing the com­mu­nity is a great way to give back to those who have sup­ported Hartshorn Portraiture. Volunteer groups, as well as non-​profits do so much to help our com­mu­ni­ties, but they can’t do it alone. Schools are suf­fer­ing in every state and chil­dren are in need.

Mac’s pho­tog­ra­phy pack­ages are donated to schools and orga­ni­za­tions in the sur­round­ing com­mu­nity that focus on edu­ca­tion, health and well­be­ing. The IDEAL School, Stevens Co-​Operative, CASA and Summit Speech School are a few of the schools that the Hartshorn’s were able to sup­port this past year. Foundations such as HFA, The Help for Children Foundation, MDA and Hoboken’s Homeless Shelter, received pack­ages to auc­tion at their fundrais­ing events. Winning bid­ders receive up to $2000 each of Mac’s pho­tog­ra­phy ser­vices and artwork.

The Hoboken Family Alliance was one of the first foun­da­tions that Mac and Jennifer sup­ported back in 2005, this year, their num­ber of recip­i­ents rose to nearly 50! In 2014, the cou­ple donated their pho­tog­ra­phy ser­vices and art­work to the value of over $160,000 in a very dif­fi­cult year for fundraisers.

For me, giv­ing back is a vital part of a full and reward­ing life. What could be more ful­fill­ing than doing what you love to do (Photography) while con­tribut­ing to the qual­ity of life of oth­ers in need within your own com­mu­nity?” says Mac. ”Hoboken and its sur­round­ing area have been great to us. We love liv­ing and work­ing in this vibrant community.”
