in the comfort of your


We understand that it's challenging to travel in the first weeks after baby arrives, so we offer Signature and Luxe Newborn Sessions in the comfort of your home. We'll bring along studio lighting, space heater, blankets, knit wraps and accessories to set up a "studio" in your bedroom. We can use a bare wall as a seamless backdrop for intimate family portraits, and/or incorporate meaningful settings within your home for added variety. Especially perfect for clients with sweet little nurseries that are camera ready.

Central Park


The perfect option for clients who would like a blend of fine art studio maternity portraits and lifestyle outdoors photography. We offer our Add-On Central Park Mini Sessions at golden hour for the best natural light. Scheduled for the same day as your studio photoshoot, we recommend arranging a date night with your loved one to complete the photoshoot experience. Make the very most of your professional makeup and hair styling for a memorable afternoon together!

every newborn baby is


As your children grow in the blink of an eye, this is your chance to embrace the special moments that will bring you joy and lasting memories.

portrait sessions

Preserve the innocence of childhood and beauty of motherhood with a family photoshoot in our Manhattan studio. We provide a relaxed and enjoyable experience, while delivering portraits of the highest quality. Our style of baby photography is soft, simple and pure to focus on your connection.




Your portrait session is only the start of creating your custom artwork. We carefully curate the best images from your session based on lighting, background, focus, pose, facial expressions, and overall appeal. One week after your session, you'll select your favorite images for editing. We pride ourselves on providing finished works of art. Unedited images are not provided. You are always welcome to order additional digital portraits from your proofing gallery.

Once you've finalized your favorites, we will artistically enhance each image in our signature style. As you’ll see in our Before & After Gallery, each image is tastefully edited into a unique work of art. For every minute we spend together, we spend hundreds more behind the scenes to make your final photos and overall experience truly exceptional.

your digital portraits

All Portrait Sessions include a select number of artistically edited images in high resolution. As professional newborn photographers , we take great pride in our craft. We do not release RAW unedited images, since they are not a finished product. You're always welcome to purchase additional digital portraits to download, share and print to your heart's content!


your artwork

We strive to provide a luxury experience from start to finish. Within weeks of your photoshoot, you'll be able to download your artistically edited portraits in high resolution and order custom artwork. We're always happy to accommodate a shorter timeframe if you need your portraits ready in time for a special occasion. We offer a curated collection of Fine Art Prints, Gallery Wraps, Floating Metal Art, Velvet Folios and Keepsake Albums.

You’re welcome to share snapshots of your wall space and home decor, so we can design a beautiful presentation of your most special memories.

Keepsake Albums

Breathtakingly beautiful, our albums will find themselves passed down from generation to generation. Each handcrafted Album is custom designed to tell the story of your family’s most special memories. Children love browsing through these Albums, and guests can’t get enough of them. Thick, lay-flat pages are finished with rounded corners to create a seamless look that will stand the test of time. Covers are vibrant and durable, printed on polished, high-gloss aluminum. Each Album is created with the same love and attention to detail that goes into the newborn and maternity photos that we create.


pampered & empowered

Enjoy an afternoon of well-deserved pampering, and a celebration of everything that makes you feel gorgeous. Amidst the chaos of everyday commitments, taking time to focus on yourself is life-changing. Our studio offers a personalized experience for women to freely express and rediscover themselves through a luxury beauty & boudoir portrait session.
