Now and always, the health and safety of our clients' families as well as our own remains our top priority. In the interest of ensuring that we maintain a safe environment for everyone who visits our studio, we appreciate everyone’s thoughtful consideration.


Our precautionary measures:

• Disinfecting all door handles, elevator buttons and surfaces at our studio before and after each session.

• Mask and gloves available for our photographer to wear for added safety

• Hand sanitizers in building lobby and studio

• Limiting our studio to four sessions per week.

• We ask all clients to thoroughly wash their hands and remove their shoes before entering the studio


We are a custom photography studio that serves clients by appointment only, and are staffed by a single photographer. At present time, we remain open and committed to fulfilling our clients’ sessions, while maintaining a clean and safe working environment.

We are personally avoiding public transportation, shopping centers, and social gatherings to avoid exposure. We have elderly family members, so this matter is of utmost importance to us. We strongly encourage our clients to do the same. Please stay healthy and try to minimize stress whenever possible. If we all make a concerted effort, we can get through these challenging times together.


Our best wishes to you all!

every newborn baby is


We've been photographing newborn babies for over ten years, and we have the patience and expertise needed to safely pose and photograph your little infant. Our photos showcase the sweet angelic features, adorable facial expressions, and tiny nuances of your little bundle of joy. We love to use a macro lens for those tiny details that may not even be obvious to the naked eye. Every baby is unique, and every newborn photo session is one-of-a-kind. During your portrait session, only natural blankets, wraps and accessories are used. While your baby is more awake, we will also focus on a variety of family portraits. There is nothing more wonderful than preserving the loving bond between brand new parents and their newborn baby as beautiful works of art.

Newborn photography is a very delicate art, requiring years of practice and expert skills in safely posing and handling newborns. That’s why we’ve been doing this for over ten years, and that’s why more New York City parents trust us than anyone else. Our blankets are sanitized after every use, and our studio is swept daily to ensure a safe, hygienic environment for your infant. The low-power flash we use offers an extremely fast duration of just 1/63,000 of a second, ensuring that nothing disturbs your sleeping baby. Newborn Photo Sessions generally last around two hours, allowing plenty of time for diaper changes and feedings to keep your little one in a calm and happy mood.
