Centrally located on 30 manicured and secluded acres in the heart of New Jersey’s business corridor, just minutes from Interstate 287, The Palace at Somerset is a unique, elegant and incredibly flexible facility for everything from small brainstorming events to training and continuing education sessions, to gala awards ceremonies and milestone celebrations. It can accommodate groups of fewer than 10 or more than 700.
Only 10 years young, The Palace at Somerset Park harkens back to the Gilded Age with its 72,000-square-foot mansion designed in the style of a Neo-Palladian villa. While the full span, with its central Grand Foyer, embraces large gatherings, each of the mansion’s two wings is designed to function as a free-standing facility for mid-sized groups, and the second-floor conference center offers a third separate space with a dozen meeting rooms and a pub-style dining and entertainment area called Gatsby’s. |

Saba Photography

SABA photography resized

Mahvash Saba was always fascinated by images.  Her enthusiasm for recreating a likeness led her to study painting and sculpture.  But it was photography that would become her art.  Mahvash began documenting social issues as a photojournalist, eventually becoming a Kodak International award winner.  As she grew as an artist, she began to see the light and beauty of the people who participated in her projects.  That is when she realized that each of them had a truth that she wanted to uncover on film. It wasn’t long before she discovered how much she loved capturing the beauty of people.
Mahvash believes that your unique beauty as a person is much more than just a pose or a smile.  The focus of her sessions is to capture your energy and the essence of your personality.  “To have someone open up and for a moment, just be themselves in front of my camera is a beautiful experience.  There’s nothing like it.”  When you stand in front of Mahvash’s lens, she wants you to share in the excitement of that moment. It’s your chance to show the world who you are.  Mahvash has helped artists, executives, and families tell their stories, providing them with a visual narrative that documents their lives, whether it’s a wedding, family portrait, or her specialty—creative headshots.
Mahvash wants your photo session to be a fun, exciting and authentic experience. She doesn’t just photograph people.  With just one click, she captures what beauty, life, and love look like.  Smiles are welcome, but they are not mandatory. |
