Family Portraits ~ What Are You Waiting For?

As professional photographers, Desiree and Stacy at Image is Everything Studios have clients in and out of their studio daily and tend to see the same milestones being photographed time and time again.  Maternity sessions and newborn portraits are always captured.  Parents photograph their babies first year of life and possibly each birthday following until they reach preschool.

“After that, we often don’t see these cuties again until their First Holy Communion or beyond.  Parents rely on school and team sports portraits to be their yearly photo,” says Desiree.

“However, it’s these same families who stepped into the studio that first day we met and admired our framed family portraits. They complimented the beach sessions, hanging as gorgeous framed art throughout the studio.  Our canvases highlight one clients’ growing family during the gorgeous fall months, and it’s finish is breathtaking.  These families  exclaimed that they’d be back, they wanted the same for their families.  But alas, the babies grew into children and the family portrait was put off. Forgotten. Pushed to the wayside because life happened.”

In reality, the family portrait should be the MOST important thing.  It’s so overlooked and undervalued.  Research has shown that it is a large self-esteem boost for children to see themselves as a valued and important part of a family unit.  It lets children learn who they are and where they fit.   When your children see a family portrait with them included in the photograph, they say to themselves, ‘These people have me as part of what they are, that’s why I belong here. This is where I come from.’  - Krauss and Weiser – “Photo Therapy and Mental Health”

Don’t put off your family portraits any longer.  If you don’t think you have anywhere to put it, Image is Everything can help you with their complimentary design services.  They offer both in studio and on location portraits, at their location or yours. Friendly pets welcome too!

Introducing Diva Tonight ~ Special Occasion Jewelry Rental

There’s a new business in town!  Introducing Diva Tonight- a special occasion jewelry rental company that gives you the opportunity to look like you’re wearing thousands of dollars worth of jewelry…without buying  thing!

Meet JoAnne TozziJoAnne Tozzi

Diva Tonight is owned and operated by Mullica Hill resident (and mom), Joanne Tozzi.  JoAnne has over 20 years of experience in the jewelry industry and has a Graduate Degree (G.G.) in Gemology from Gemological Institute of America in NYC.  Translation: she’s something of an expert when it comes to diamonds and gemstones!

After watching the Oscars and admiring a pair of emerald and diamond earrings that Angelina Jolie had rented from Harry Winston, JoAnne was inspired to create an opportunity for “regular women” to do just the same.  That sparked the beginning of her journey to develop a line of jewelry for everyday women to rent that looked expensive, but was affordable.

Diva Tonight offers you a chance to wear “red carpet” style or “statement” jewelry – something that you probably don’t own – when you have a formal event to attend.  It’s an opportunity to wear expensive looking jewelry without the financial commitment of investing in jewelry that you will likely only wear once.

Diva Tonight looks and feels luxurious, but it’s totally affordable. It’s crafted from Sterling Silver with 14k Rhodium (white Gold) on top.  The stones are a specially formulated Cubic Zirconia which is used as a diamond replicate. They look so similar to real diamonds that none of your friends will know the difference (unless you tell them!)

Diva Tonight features two different lines of jewelry, the Queen Series and the Princess Series, to appeal to a variety of social situations.  Rental fees range from $15-$50 per item.

Diva Tonight’s Queen Series features big, bold designs that are sure to get noticed.  They are perfect for a formal wedding, black tie gala or other formal evening event.

Choose from a variety of gorgeous earrings and necklaces that really make a statement.

How it Works

Browse the selection of gorgeous jewelry online at www.divatonight.com  You can rent your jewelry for as long as you need, whether it’s for a weekend away or a night out on the town.

  1. Select your date- use their calendars to reserve your jewelry for the time frame you need
  2. Receive your jewelry- two days before your event through you local post office
  3. Look Amazing- own the room and take lots of pictures!
  4. Return the jewelry- the next business day after your event/rental period using the prepaid USPS packaging

It’s simple…you will not be charged anything until after you go to your event!  When you book your jewelry dates, Diva Tonight will reserve the rental fee and the security deposit of $100 on your credit card.  Once the jewelry is safely back to them, the security deposit will be removed and you will only be charged for your rental.

Mulllica Hill Mom, New Jersey DealsSince Diva Tonight is based in Mullica Hill, JoAnne will offer local customers the opportunity to try the jewelry on before renting.  Just email her your jewelry selections and contact info to set up an appointment.

LuLaRoe in Mullica Hill

LuLaRoe Ashlee Hemphill LuLaRoe Logo

LuLaRoe is now in Mullica Hill! MHM’s own, Ashlee Hemphill, is now selling these sought after clothes from her home in South Harrison township. 

What is LuLaRoe? It’s comfortable, reasonably priced clothing for women and children. The company, which started 3 years ago out of California, is quickly growing across the country. What started out as a woman making maxi skirts for her daughter turned into a national company showcasing dresses, skirts, tops, and their now signature butter leggings.

What makes it unique? Lularoe only prints limited quantities of each pattern. If you see a print you like grab it! Chances are you won’t see it again and no one else will be wearing that print in your area.

How do you check out the clothes? Contact Ashlee directly to set up a time to visit her at-home boutique. She currently carries leggings (adult and child), maxi skirts, pencil skirts, tunic tops, and dresses. You can also visit her Facebook page to find information on the styles she carries and online sale information. You can purchase the clothes here and she will deliver in person if you’re local. You can also get information on local pop up shops that she’ll be hosting in town.

Want to get free clothes? Have a party at your home and earn free clothes just for hosting. She currently has dates available in May and June.

Once you try on your first pair of leggings you’ll be hooked. Who doesn’t want to be comfortable while looking fashionable?

For more information contact Ashlee at lularoeashleehemphill@gmail.com or visit her Facebook page here.
