Modern Maternity & Newborn Portrait Studio
glow portraits® is a NYC boutique portrait studio specializing in timeless maternity and newborn photography.  Conveniently located in Midtown Manhattan, the portrait studio attracts clients from Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, New Jersey, Connecticut, Westchester, and the surrounding areas.  You’re welcome to browse additional samples of our pregnancy photography and baby portraits in the maternity gallery and newborn gallery.

At glow portraits®, we have years of experience in capturing maternity photography and newborn photography. We specialize in artistic lighting, tasteful posing, and artistic cropping to ensure you look your best.  We recommend professional make-up and hair styling to ensure a timeless look for your portraits. Natural make-up, fake lashes, and soft curls are generally preferred among our clients. Our signature style of post-processing includes tasteful smoothing of skin and body contours to put the finishing touches on your portraits. 

The best time to capture your maternity photos is 32 – 36 weeks into your pregnancy. Your belly is beautifully round, but you are still feeling comfortable for kneeling and lying down poses. We offer a wardrobe of fitted maternity gowns, silk fabrics, lace robes, and crop tops for a variety of beautiful concepts.  You can view styles featured in our portfolio.  Clients are also welcome to bring their own lingerie and styles if they have a particular concept in mind. As you’ll see in our portfolio, we love to get creative!

As NYC’s premiere portrait photographer, we would love to photograph your pregnancy as exquisite works of art.  If you’d like to book your own nyc maternity photography session, please contact the Manhattan NYC portrait studio at 212.868.1076.  We look forward to capturing these precious memories for your family!

The Value of Custom Photography

The arrival of your little one is an incredibly exciting time in your lives. You’ve prepared for months – reading every parenting article you can get your hands on, shopping for goodies, stocking up on diapers, and decorating the nursery to perfection. Arranging for a portrait session is an often overlooked part of the nesting months, but it’s an invaluable way to celebrate and preserve these precious memories for your family.

The teeny tiny newborn phase passes in the blink of an eye, and there is a small window of time for these portraits to be captured successfully. Although a photography session can be planned at any time in your baby’s first months, those sweet womblike poses can only be achieved within the first two weeks after birth. Selecting the wrong photographer could cause you to lose the opportunity to have your newborn baby professionally photographed, so we strongly recommend finding the best photographer for your family at least several months in advance of your due date.

At glow portraits, we recommend ideally capturing newborn portraits in the first 4-10 days. Beyond the first two weeks, baby’s bones and muscles start to strengthen, and and she’ll stretch out more with her limbs, which makes those womblike poses no longer feel natural and comfortable. Besides this development, baby will also experience a growth spurt and become more alert after the first two weeks.

With the convenience of phone cameras at our fingertips, many parents think they will have a chance to capture beautiful portraits of their baby. However, with the whirlwind of getting adjusted to life with a baby, you’d be surprised how challenging it is to get high quality pictures on your own. Newborns are very delicate, and getting each pose perfect requires endless practice, patience, and a trained eye. As you’ll see in our newborn gallery, the quality of images from your professional newborn photo shoot will outshine those from even the best digital camera.

We specialize in working with newborns, and boast years of experience. We’re familiar with the perfect lighting equipment, camera, lenses, calm environment, and blanket setup to capture your baby in the most artistic and flattering poses. Safety is of course always a priority, and precautions are taken at every stage of your session to ensure your baby is feeling calm and comfortable. We also use artistic post-processing to eliminate any blemishes and enhance each portrait into a beautiful work of art. It warms our hearts to provide clients with timeless images that will exceed your expectations, and be cherished for a lifetime.

We strive to create a relaxed and peaceful environment for newborn sessions in our Midtown Manhattan studio, so parents can sit back and enjoy the experience. We understand that your home in a state of chaos, while you get settled into life with your brand new baby. We want you leave that behind, and have a chance to simply enjoy your baby and focus on this little miracle.

With newborn portraits, you can freeze those very first days with your bundle of joy, capturing all of the tiny details, curled up poses, and sweet facial expressions. You’ll have many opportunities to take photos of your child as she grows up, but you will never again have these first days. The professional portraits from your newborn session will be the perfect images to share when you introduce your newest addition to all your family and friends. Whether you use a birth announcement, custom keepsakes, or an online album – the possibilities are endless with your beautiful gallery of newborn portraits that you will cherish forever.

We use our expertise in newborn posing to create portraits that will be treasured for generations. If you are expecting a baby, please be in touch as soon as possible to schedule your maternity portrait session or newborn photo shoot. We can be reached at our Manhattan NYC studio 212.868.1076, or anytime by email at info@glow-portraits.com. We can’t wait to capture this incredible once-in-a-lifetime milestone for your family!

dreamy and ethereal

We loved getting creative with this gorgeous mama-to-be in our Midtown studio. We capture a variety of ethereal concepts to be displayed in the nursery, and sultry concepts for the bedroom. Although we offer a full wardrobe for maternity portraits, we always encourage clients to bring along a few favorite items of their own. These concepts with the lace crop top were absolutely divine, and the black Calvin Klein underwear with blazer was a classic look that can easily be shared with family and friends. We’re excited to design a keepsake album that will be treasured for years to come!!
