Images is Everything Studios, LLC came about when we, Stacy Cortese and Desiree Miller, decided to intertwine our individual portrait businesses to better serve our customer’s needs.  We first opened a small studio in Franklinville in 2009, but then moved to a larger location in Clayton the following year. During those first few years, we were blessed with many new and returning clients, which eventually led to the opening of our current location at the historic John C. Rulon house in downtown Swedesboro (2013).

 Our goal is, and always has been, to provide a photographic experience like nothing else in the area.  Together, we have over 20 years combined experience. We specialize in Maternity, Newborn, Baby and Fine Art portraits, but also photograph sports and schools as well.  Education in the portrait industry is ongoing for us. We both attend, as well as teach, classes often to improve our skills. We are both highly experienced and emphasize the importance of newborn safety at all times. Our approach to photography is pure, simple and fresh.

 Desiree and her husband have two beautiful children, Justin and Brooke.
 Stacy and her husband have two beautiful daughters, Jacelynn and Emma. 

About the Artists

Desiree & Stacy

The historic John C Rulon house in Swedesboro is the home to our quaint studio. The historic home dates back to the early 1800's. It's one of the few properties on Kings Highway business district that sits back from off the road.

We are able to utilize multiple rooms in the house for a variety of sessions. We have a studio lighting room, a natural light room as well as a fully stocked newborn room. Our newborn room is dedicated only to the newest members of the Image is Everything family. We do not photograph other children in this room on the day of your session. We are able to also keep the room temperature controlled for to keep your baby warm and toasty! 

Our expansive studio offers the largest selection of maternity gowns, newborn props and accessories, as well as limitless background and set choices.
