Free Halloween Portraits – Montclair

October 31, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Halloween Portriats by Michael Stahl


Trick or Treat Portraits

The annual tradition of photographing trick or treaters continues at Portraits by Michael Stahl.


Halloween is a magical night. Children can dress up as their favorite tv character, superhero or heroine, or fully embrace creative ideas. Michael Stahl will be creating ghoulish portraits of your costumed trick-or-treaters in exchange for a full bag of groceries.


If you want your son or daughter’s photo to be documented by Portraits by Michael Stahl, visit Commonwealth Club at 26 Northview Avenue in Upper Montclair on Halloween, Thursday, October 31, 2019, from 2:00 – 6:00 PM for professional Halloween portraits.


An annual tradition, he has offered the community to photograph those in their Halloween costume and he posts the photos on his Facebook page which can either downloaded or shared with family and friends. As payment for these photos, all you will need to do is bring a bag full of food donations for Toni’s Kitchen and the Human Needs Food Pantry. Please do not bring any jars or food past its expiration date. The number of families in our area for whom regular meals are a challenge is growing. Please be generous with your donations. In past years, the Stahls were able to deliver an SUV full of groceries to the food pantry following this event. 


While there is no minimum age for the free professional Halloween portraits, minors have to be accompanied by an adult. Appointments are not needed, so come this year prepared with a bag to donate  and your little ones wearing their costumes.
