Photographer Cari Arena: Focusing on the beauty of newborns and babies

“She discovered with great delight that one does not love one’s children just because they are one’s children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.” 
— Gabriel García Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera

I absolutely love newborn photography and adore taking pictures of infants, babies and children. I have always worked in the world of Communications/Public Relations, so I just love being around people. I feel truly lucky to be able to work with so many wonderful families in doing what I love to do!

I have three beautiful children; Jackson, Grayson and Brooke and feel so blessed to be their mommy!

Ok, I am sure you are asking yourself...where did she come up with TuLeaf Photography??

Well, ask my mom! She has called me by that nickname since I was a baby and I don't think she even knows why! It stuck though and I love it, so that is why I decided to name my photography business TuLeaf Photography! :)

I specialize in newborn photography and have a beautiful, boutique-like studio at my Delmar home with a variety of unique and timeless backdrops (blankets), props, hats, headbands, etc. They are available for all of my clients to use. I have studied and mentored with some of the best in the newborn industry and love translating all that I continue to learn into beautiful images for my clients. I just wrapped up a newborn workshop with one of my very favorites and am so excited to get my hands on our 2016 newborn babies!

Our services are also listed on some prestigious sites.
