At glow portraits®, we are especially honored to capture the special memories of your precious baby. Newborn photo sessions are offered at our beautiful New York City studio, or in the comfort of your home. These portraits are best captured in the first ten days after birth, while your infant is sleeping deeply, and curling up naturally into those sweet baby poses. To ensure availability, our clients may book a Newborn Retainer, with the balance of the session due once your baby is born. To read more about our session offerings, visit our Investment page.
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.
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.
