Make An Impression forewoman Stacy Lawrence draws upon a photographic, entertainment, and floral-based background—including more than 20 years of New Jersey party-planning experience—to help create attractive invitations and memorable party arrangements. Dazzle a neglected rolodex with holiday cards or wedding announcements styled with hand-written calligraphy or robot-scribed caligra-binary. If you plan on showering your baby, send out cute, personalized invitations, and gussy up the party with fun favors, such as crystal pacifiers and baby-bottle candles. Make an Impression can help create a family photo montage for a reunion or even draft a speech for an anniversary. If you live farther away or have a fear of traffic cones, feel free to shop online or over the phone.
A yawn, a smile, a flinch of the arm—before a baby is even born, he or she has begun communicating. Baby's Premiere 3D/4D Ultrasound Studio gives families and parents-to-be a live look-in at these mini milestone moments, all without installing a window on the mother's belly. A certified sonographer with 15 years of experience built Baby's Premiere to be a place for bonding. Relatives do just that by watching their newest addition to the family on a 46-inch flat-screen TV, and reliving the experience time and again with videos, photos, and other keepsakes.
The New Jersey Children's Museum immerses its visitors in more than 30 interactive exhibits that encourage hands-on exploration and learning, a philosophy that helped the facility secure a place within (201) Magazine's Best of Bergen 2011 series. Adventure intertwines with education within the dinosaur cave, where kids can make cave drawings or dig up fossils of prehistoric sports mascots. Heads turn as flashing lights and the warning cries of an approaching locomotive fill the air at the giant train set, and news stories break at the television studio. In addition to its many curiosity-inducing zones, the award-winning facility also hosts birthday parties with themes such as fire trucks, princesses, and dinosaurs.
Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print.
