About Ava


While I specialize in photography, I'm a multi passionate entrepreneur and believe all types of art defines who I am. Creating lifetime images for you and your family truly fulfills me, I honestly can't imagine doing anything else.

The Studio

my creative Space

Having a storefront retail studio to my at home garage that serves as my shooting space, fine art shop and client meeting area. This is my creative zone and I love when clients come in.

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.

The Studio & Shop

After closing the doors on my retail studio, my heart always tugged to have a designated space. For the past 5 years, I've been photographing clients in my home studio and proudly launched my fine art gallery and shop in 2021
