beauty portraits are for all women!

Beauty photography is more than just sensual and inspiring photos of yourself. It’s a life-changing experience that teaches you to love the skin you’re in and embrace it. Boudoir photos are exciting! You get to dress up (dress down), get your hair and makeup done, wear the sexiest clothes, and rock out your session. It’s the moment you rediscover how lovely you are, inside and out. If you’re tired of hiding in the shadows and not living life to the fullest, this could be your first step towards breaking out of that. It’s time to manifest your sexy side!

There are so many occasions to treat yourself to a boudoir session.  As NYC’s premiere portrait photography studio, we specialize in capturing your most gorgeous self as exquisite works of art.  Please contact the studio at 212.868.1076 to schedule your own custom photoshoot, and we can discuss the vision for your portraits.

artistic editing of newborn portraits

As portrait photographers, our passion is creating beautiful custom imagery that will be
treasured by your family for generations. As parents, we want you to remember your newborn
as being tiny, adorable, and perfect in every way. This is your sweet angel, your bundle of joy
and happiness that you’ve anxiously waited for months to cuddle.

As you can see in the before & after sample below, our style of artistic editing is natural, soft and dreamy.
After color correcting for the perfect skin tones, we carefully minimize temporary elements that are distracting
from the overall appeal of an image to enhance the natural beauty. For example, newborn rashes,
skin discolorations, bruises, diaper marks, eye crust, dried milk around the mouth, or patches of dark hair
on the back and shoulders. These are all conditions that will fade away naturally within a few weeks.

Every baby is unique, and that’s what we strive to capture with my portraiture. We want you to be able to
enlarge every image from your gallery as a 40×60 work of art to be displayed proudly in your home.
Of course NYC wall space is limited, but a photographer can dream!Newborn Photographer Natural Editing

newborn home photoshoot editing

newborn portraits showcase sweet snuggles

The first few weeks with a new baby can feel exhausting. The sleepless nights and endless cuddles. The hours of crying but also the fleeting little giggles and smiles. It feels like you’ll never get a full night of sleep again, and you wonder how in the world you’re surviving on fumes. That’s one of the reasons we love studio newborn sessions, so you’ll have a place to get away from the chaos for a moment and soak in all of the good parts of this special time in your life. They’re only little once, and we’re here to help you remember every sweet detail. The cuddles, coos, and newborn kisses.

It’s amazing how quickly babies grow and change until it’s hard to imagine how they could have ever fit so perfectly curled up asleep on your chest. But every time you see a photograph, it takes you right back to that moment. These little details fade so quickly from memory. We want you to savor all these magical moments with your newborn as custom portrait photography.

Our signature style is soft, simple, and pure. We love to capture the sweet expressions, tiny details, and tender emotions of this special time.

Welcoming a newborn baby is the most special time in a family’s life, and a professional photo shoot is a wonderful way to preserve these memories forever and ever. Our cozy Midtown studio offers a variety of soft blankets, cozy wraps, and knit accessories. Our years of experience in handling and soothing newborns ensures that brand new parents can relax and enjoy the experience. With our expertise in artful lighting and editing, we are dedicated to producing heirloom artwork to be enjoyed for generations.

Capturing your bundle of joy within the first two weeks of life can make all the difference in your newborn portraits. During this time, babies sleep deeply and curl up naturally into those adorable womblike poses.  Since birthdays are unpredictable, we reserve only a limited number of sessions per month based on your due date.  We simply ask that you contact our Manhattan studio as soon as possible after the birth, so we can offer a selection of appointments to accommodate your family.  Preemies are sometimes postponed till any concerns about health and birth weight have been taken into consideration.  Every case is unique, so please call us at the studio to discuss once your tiny miracle has arrived.

A newborn photography session wis a wonderful way to capture this momentous life-changing event.  Our specialty is creating timeless, beautiful portraits that capture the sweetness of this fleeting time.  We believe in authentic, natural photography to preserve these meaningful memories in your life.  Your baby will only be that tiny for a few short weeks, and you’ll want to remember how she looked when you first met her.  You’ll want to capture how perfectly she fits in your arms, your intense emotions, and the way you gazed at her in complete wonder and adoration.

We’ll start with portraits of your baby in adorable curled-up poses on different blankets.  We use knit accessories and wraps to add variety, while keeping the focus on the beauty of your tiny bundle of joy. Afterwards, we’ll capture some intimate concepts and cuddles together with Mommy and Daddy.   Our clients generally purchase prints, wall art, and handmade albums to display their gorgeous newborn and family portraits.
