“For families who want to experience the beauty of their changing family as art, Hartshorn Portraiture is the portrait studio that celebrates all those perfect imperfections because we believe that family is your masterpiece.”
By fusing his experience in fashion and editorial, award winning portrait photographer Mac Hartshorn brings a fresh perspective to fine art family photography. Our family owned, sunny Hoboken studio is the perfect setting for family portrait shoots, but a stone’s throw from New York and New Jersey’s unique cityscapes and beach backdrops. Mac’s candid and relaxed approach to pregnancy & newborn portraits and vibrant family and children portraits allow him to capture your family’s unique personality through images. Using our signature light style and with the focus on who you are, your relationships and emotions, allows Mac to create a memory of your changing family that will live as art in your home and in your heart – from our family to yours.
Mac’s clients have included celebrities in television and the music industry and he has been featured in numerous periodicals. New Jersey Life Magazine as a Readers’ Choice Winner, Bergen Mama, The Ridgewood News, The Hudson Reporter, The NJ Record and The Jersey Journal to name a few.
“As any even slightly perfectionist parent might imagine or know, having family photos done, with kids at a young age, doesn't usually start out to be the joyful, carefree experience we hope to capture and project in the final photos. The intentionally spit perfectly coiffed hair, spankin clean and perfectly pressed shirts, happy, smiling children at 8 AM isn't a guarantee even though we idealize it to be.
What Mac Hartshorn brings to the environment is a laid back casualness, a fun loving and affected goofiness that sets the mood, makes everyone at ease and allows him to capture the magnificent images that he creates. Not knowing Mac well, i think that that is who Mac is and it works. He shows up at the beach with flip flops and shorts, a happy disposition and a playful spirit...that works with kids.
He worked with ease having us run through the waves jump off rocks and race through the sand.
That relaxed spontaneity is what I wanted to project in the images and he made it happen.
Thank you Mac!”
