“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.

“Mac is a ridiculously talented photographer and my children are mesmerized by him during the photo shoots as if he was the pied piper. It's as if he's got a bag of pixie dust and my children are under his spell when he takes their pictures. I cried when I viewed the photos from my last shoot. The images Mac captures of my kids are just indescribable. He captures these unbelievable split-second moments and it's all in their little eyes and their smiles. I have no idea how he does it, but I just keep coming back for more. This was my third shoot and I am already booking my fourth.

Hartshorn Portraiture is probably the best photography studio I have ever used and I have used quite a few. Can't say enough about Mac Hartshorn and his photos, not to mention the superb team that gets it all done. I can't wait to get pregnant and have some great pictures taken. I can't wait for beach pictures and xmas card season. How can you resist not having these kind of memories. This was my mother's day present to myself. The best gift I could buy for myself. Love it and love Mac and love his wife Jennifer! She's a riot and the team is off the charts professional.”
