In 2007, I opened Ava Martinez Photography; a boutique photography studio that has been capturing portraits for teens and families for over fifteen years. What started off as an idea , big dreams and a ton of passion, developed into a thriving full time business. After graduating NJCU with a Bachelor in Arts degree, I interned for NBC in their photography department then having many in between jobs. My heart was always with photography and helping people leave their legacy through art. I began building my business at the age of twenty four.
My company went from an at home operating studio to my retail photography studio where I sharpened my skills, became confident as a business owner and gained many client relationships. There are so many aspects to my business, it certainly isn't just one niche. I'm an artist at heart and love creating many things. Let's create something beautiful together.
I reside in Bloomfield, NJ (although growing up in Kearny, NJ) with my husband Frank, daughter Amelia & son Marcus as well as our five year dog Harley.
