NYC Maternity & Newborn Photography Studio

the importance of newborn photography

Newborn sessions hold a special place in our heart. The ridiculous amount of love and happiness that fills the home always brings back a flood of memories of our own special time. There’s nothing more exciting than a brand new bundle of joy, and despite the lack of sleep and endless diaper changes for baby, everyone just can’t stop smiling and laughing. Our cheeks generally hurt by the time we leave the session, and then it starts all over again as we’re curating the images to share with clients.

That perfect mini mohawk, little button nose and newborn wrinkles are the best part of your new baby, but they only last those first few weeks. With all the sleepless nights, seemingly endless feedings and diaper changes, those sweet details can go by so quickly. We love to capture those precious beginnings for you to cherish forever. As a full service luxury boutique family portrait studio, we will spend time with you during a consultation to learn all of your desires for your session.  We will also discuss creative ways in which to display the beautiful artwork in your home, whether it be as floating metal art, handcrafted album or showcase box of matted fine art prints.  The possibilities are truly endless!

newborn photography in the comfort of home

Newborn shoots are ideally captured in baby’s first two weeks.  This is the optimal time for capturing the essence of your tiny bundle of joy. Our sessions take place in the comfort of your own home, and we bring professional lighting equipment, blankets and accessories to create a timeless and magical gallery of photos that you’ll cherish for generations.

Capturing your newborn session at home is wonderful for many reasons. Many families would like to include their cute puppies or other pets in the family photos, showcase baby’s nursery design, and incorporate meaningful settings in the home and yard. We also understand that the home environment is generally ideal for baby’s comfort and safety.  We photograph on-location in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island, Westchester, Connecticut, Long Island, and surrounding areas in NYC. We also offer our Midtown Manhattan studio as an alternative for parents who are in the process of moving, or cannot photograph at home for any other reason.

If you’re interested in scheduling a newborn shoot, please reach us at the studio for updated availability.  We look forward to hearing from you soon!

classic studio newborn photography

Newborns are truly our favorite little subjects to photograph, and our passion for capturing these precious first days of life shines through in the portraits we create for brand new families. We keep our approach simple with a neutral palette and soft lighting that allows focus to remain on all the perfect tiny details of your brand new bundle of joy. Our signature style is soft and pure to create timeless works of art that will stand the test of time. The experience in our studio or comfort of your home is calm and relaxing, as we soothe and carefully pose your baby as they were curled up naturally in your womb.

Newborns change so quickly in those first weeks, so we strongly urge clients to reserve availability around their due date as soon as possible during their pregnancy. Of course we try our best to allow flexibility for urgent bookings, but nothing breaks our hearts more than being unavailable to capture these moments for families when we’re already fully booked. Please feel free to find details of our packages in the Investment section of our site, and we look forward to hearing from you when you’re ready to reserve your due date on our calendar!

Sweet little Angelina. I can’t believe it’s already been a few months since you were in the studio for your newborn session. We are so far behind on blogging and social media, as our maternity and newborn clients keep us busy beyond our wildest dreams! This baby girl was an angel for her newborn portraits. We couldn’t stop gushing about her chubby cheeks and lush lashes. An absolute doll. Thanks again for blessing us with the honor of capturing these priceless memories for your family. Hard to believe that we’ll be capturing her six-months portraits soon. Always so incredible to capture baby’s blossoming personality at this special age. We’re so thankful for the continued support and referrals from all our clients. It really means the world to us!!
