Ting Yi Studio JOURNAL

Introducing Ting Yi Studio | Waterfront Studio for Women’s Photography Sessions

Filed in: Portraits, Studio

Looking for a “photography studio near me?” Ting Yi Studio is excited to announce our new, fully-furnished waterfront photography studio! Far more than a small space with good light, our studio on the lake in Jefferson, New Jersey, offers a full lake house retreat. You have plenty of room to spread out.

I’ve had a vision for the perfect photography studio for years. After photographing over 800 weddings since 2009, I miss the bride’s I’ve had a privilege to work with. Women’s studio sessions allow me to reconnect with theses amazing brides and continue telling their story through photography. The wedding day was just the beginning. These strong women have so much more to tell.

I’m excited for this opportunity to photograph more chapters of their stories with personal branding photos, headshots for their blossoming careers, maternity photos, empowering boudoir pictures, and more!

I knew I wanted a quiet, private space, a gorgeous outdoor area, and a variety of rooms for different types of photography sessions. As soon as I saw this stunning lake house, I knew it was exactly what I envisioned and more! The spacious New Jersey home has a fabulous open-concept kitchen, living and dining room, and four bedrooms for various styled shoots.

Our new studio feels like a much-needed getaway with views of the sparkling lake, tree-covered hills, and mountains beyond. It’s so much easier to relax and take amazing photos when you’re in your happy place—and this is it! I block out half a day for each session. You have time to unwind, settle in, and enjoy every minute without feeling rushed.

Finding the right location was another big factor in my studio search. I wanted the studio to be convenient for local clients in Jefferson Township and Oak Ridge, New Jersey, but I also wanted a waterfront property with mountain views that’s still close to the city for my NY clients. It seemed impossible at first, but this gem of a studio is just an hour from New York City, a couple of hours from Philadelphia, PA, and an hour and a half to Allentown, PA. Make a day of it and escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

Sessions at DP Photography Studio, NJ

DP Studio specializes in all types of women’s photography. Whether you envision bold boudoir portraits or fun, laidback branding photos by the water, my goal is to bring your vision to life. This studio gives you space to create art through photography, and I’m here to guide you through the process and help you embrace your inner model.

As women, most of us have very few photos ourselves because we have our hands full with life or don’t feel comfortable with how our bodies look. But you deserve fantastic images where you are the gorgeous focal point. There’s no need to “shed a few more pounds,” “tighten your core,” or “wait until a better time.” Now is the perfect time to invest in yourself with self-portraits. You’ll be amazed at just how beautiful others see you when you look through my lens instead of a mirror and your inner critic. I’ll help you drop those insecurities at the door and fall in love with your body, just as it is.

A Portrait Experience That Feels like Self Love

All you have to do is choose the type of photos you want and show up for a day of pampering and fun. Some women need pictures for work or other specific purposes. Meanwhile, others simply want to try something new and invest in a day of self-care (with gorgeous portraits to boot). No matter your style, I promise your session will boost your confidence and refresh your soul. We will have a blast together. Plus, you’ll end up with beautifully crafted portraits you can’t wait to show off (because every woman needs more of those). Let yourself relax, let go, and have fun.

Women’s Portrait Sessions | New Jersey + New York Portrait Studio

Portrait sessions vary by season, style, and personalized needs. But in general, most full portrait sessions include:

  • In-house studio hair & makeup included
  • 4-hour photography session with Ting Yi
  • Multiple wardrobe and background changes
  • Posing guidance
  • Session planning & photo reveals

Ting Yi Studio Aesthetic and Décor

We’ve styled with studio with subtle, natural boho accents. We can add or remove props and background elements as needed. This studio is a full-sized residential home, so we can use the kitchen, living and dining areas, fireplace, balcony, and bedrooms. The waterfront studio is furnished with several queen-sized beds, a day bed, twin-sized beds, and a cozy living room lounge area.

Windows on all the outside walls let in lots of natural light, and shades and sheer curtains allow us to adjust the light depending on the time of day. Modern wood beams, bead board, oak floors, built-in shelves, and seating areas add warmth and ambiance to the studio. (One of my favorite parts of the home and studio is the balcony overlooking the lawn and lake.) Inside, greenery, Monstera plants, wicker furniture, throw pillows, and other versatile furniture and accent pieces make the studio feel like a home away from home.

During our planning call, I’ll ask you to share a mood or inspiration board so I can style the studio accordingly.

Outside, the waterfront studio features a lush green lawn patio, dock, and private white-sand beach area. We also have a small boat and kayak for unique spring and summer sessions if you find that fits your style and brand. Don’t forget to check out the gorgeous ivy-wrapped swing! We can style the studio up and down depending on the season and your aesthetic.

Best Time to Book a Studio Session

The beauty of this New Jersey photography studio is that you don’t have to push off your weekend plans. You can book your session during the week at a time that works best for you! So take a much-needed personal day and come relax in the studio with me while you have your pictures taken. We’re open during business hours every weekday!

Are you ready for some “me time?” Get in touch with me today to reserve your date and start planning with me. You deserve it! Don’t hesitate to reach out with questions, and I look forward to working with you.

PS–If you love this studio so much you’d like to vacation here, you’re in luck! It’s available as a vacation rental when we aren’t shooting. View our lakefront vacation rental on Airbnb.
