Welcome! I'm Rhiannon, I was named after a Fleetwood Mac song & I am engaged to that handsome dude on the left, Ryan. I am a natural light and on-location photographer based in Bergen County, New Jersey.. specializing in Family, Maternity and Lifestyle Newborn Photography. You will quickly notice I am inspired by the magic of families & love. I am committed to tell your story in a genuine way. Photography to me, is all about connection and interaction. I LOVE when families are snuggling together, having a tickle party, or your little guy is telling a joke. Those real moments are what speak to me. Those in-between moments are what make up your life & they deserve to be photographed for you to remember.
My love of family photography stems from my own family. Ever since I was young, I understood the importance of being together and making time for one another. Each Sunday, my dad cooks dinner for our immediate family, and when I say immediate, I mean 18 people sitting together at one dining room table. Sundays at the Livardo's are filled with laughter, eating, reminiscing, drinking wine, playing Telephone with the kids and passing my Goddaughter, Emma around the table kissing her goodbye. I love meeting families like mine, who take the time to be with one another and value their family and preserving their memories.
There isn't a generated formula to get the same images for each session because, each family has a different story to tell. Your family connection is different from the family I photographed the day before. And, I love that! Each person walks away with a custom photography experience. From the moment you inquire, it's important for us to to build a relationship, that way our session together is seamless, fun and true to your story! Your gallery of images will be filled with quiet, silly and authentic moments of your family playing, laughing and snuggling together. Using a combination of my creative eye, skillful use of light and step-to-step guidance through our session.. together we will create timeless portraits.
