Jens new Garden spring 2008


Good things come in small packages! This is certainly true about Jennifer Hartshorn’s lovely garden in Hoboken. Last year, Jennifer transferred her favorite perennials and shrubs from her beautiful garden in Park Ave, Hoboken, to her new smaller garden in Bloomfield St.

In true British style, with the help of  her parents, she created a romantic english garden to entertain in, complete with stone flags, brick paving, a swing chair for her girls and hanging baskets of fuschias. What this small plot lacks in size it makes up for in charm. Candles, lanterns and flares illuminate the compact garden at night, the air scented with honeysuckle. Jennifer and Mac regularly bbq during summer evenings and dine at the wrought iron table surrounded by flowering clematis, hydrangeas and colombines.

This year, Jennifer has switched the whole garden, changing the dining area so it sits beneath the shade of the birch tree. As soon as the snow melted in Hoboken, she and Mac moved all the shrubs, dug up the perennials once again and transferred all to their new resting spots. Watch this space for the floriferous results in the coming months.

Fundraising Event for HFA Philanthropy

by & filed under Events.

families07Missed it last year? THE HARTSHORN PORTRAITURE COMMUNITY FUNDRAISER is on again for 2009!
It’s time for our annual paring with the Hoboken Family Alliance.
Hartshorn Portraiture is happy to offer our services at a significant savings, with 10% of each session fee to be distributed to local charities through HFA Philanthropy.

This offer includes a 30 minutes photo session, after which you will receive a print package of one 8×10 print and two 5×7″ prints. The flat fee for this session will be $395.00. The regular cost for these artistic portraits is over $900.00.

We will be offering these reduced prices by appointment on the following dates: Friday, March 27th, Saturday, March 28th and Sunday, March 29th, 2009.
This event is available only to HFA members, friends, and families. There are a limited number of spots available, and the weekend spots are likely to go quickly.

Representatives from Hartshorn will be available at the Cabin Fever Festival to take bookings and consult with clients regarding wardrobe and how to prepare for the shoot.

In previous years this event has raised several hundred dollars that funded the Kids’ Fun Run portion of the Hoboken 5K. Nearly 100 children enjoyed an afternoon of games, arts and crafts, pizza, and a race around Pier A. The Hoboken 5K raised $10,000, which went directly to the Jubilee Center and the Boys’ and Girls’ Club of Hoboken.

Call the studio today to schedule your shoot.

This is a fantastic way to support our community and get fabulous pictures of your family!
