Nature Provides the Best Back Drop of All! Let's Use It!

WELCOME!! Thank you for your interest in Hot Shots Photos! Before I tell you what we ARE, I'll tell you what we are NOT. We are not your typical photography studio. First off, there's no studio. We don't use bulky backdrops or fake lighting. Your pictures will not turn out like your average "shopping mall" photo studio portraits...and we're proud of that!

Instead, we come to you or a special location for your unique photo shoot*. You can choose your own location - your yard, a favorite park, etc. - or we can make recommendations! We believe that nature provides us the best backdrop of all…so let’s use it!

Unlike typical studios where everything is "cookie cutter," your photo shoot is as unique as you are. Each shoot is customized to suit YOUR needs.

From the new little angel in your life to your prized antique car, we specialize in photojournalistic pictures that are fun, natural, artistic and, most importantly, reasonably priced! And, unlike those shopping mall studios, we'll take as much time as we have to (though we've found an hour is about all takes).

Choose from 1 of 3 packages that include:
- Private access photo gallery that can be shared with friends and family to view and purchase pictures and gifts
- Your 5 favorite pictures provided electronically for sharing via social media (low-resolution & watermarked)
- Choice of glossy or matte paper

Additional photos can be purchased a la carte, including black and whites, black and white with pops of color, photo gifts and more!! General interest photos are also available for purchase so feel free to browse our galleries!

So, remember...if it's studio photography you want, we're not for you. But if you're looking for something unique, fun, and affordable, give us a call!

About the Photographers:

Niki Alberti is a former marketing professional who left the corporate life to be a stay-at-home mother. She has a passion for photography that goes back years to her early childhood (you know...back when 35mm film was "The Thing"). The concept for Hot Shots! came while waiting for nearly two hours with 7 kids, ages 6 months to 15 years old, at one of those shopping mall studios...despite having an appointment.

Adam Alberti is a professional firefighter who specializes in spot news and fire apparatus photography, with pictures published professionally in countless magazines, books, advertisements and newspapers. For more examples of his work, visit

Niki and Adam are married with two kids, and reside in Kenvil, New Jersey (Morris County).
