The Perfect Age for Newborn Photos
The ideal time for newborn photos is within the first 14 days of birth when your baby is still sleeping deeply and naturally curls into those precious newborn poses. After two weeks, babies become much more alert, less flexible and things like colic and acne can develop, making ‘newborn’ portraits more challenging. I do also photograph older babies (up to one year old) so don’t hesitate to contact me if your baby is older.

Maternity photo sessions generally last about 1.5 hours. There is plenty of time for an outfit change, and some portraits together with daddy-to-be. click on the image bellow for view gallery

All portraits are respectfully photographed in good taste, and nudity is always optional and discreet. The best time to schedule a pregnancy session is between 32-36 weeks. The idea is to come when you have a full round belly but are still feeling good and comfortable enough to move around. I photograph maternity sessions in studio and outdoors at any time of year.

I love doing maternity sessions in Central Park and since I live on the park, there is no additional fee for this location. I have a collection of maternity wraps and gowns for my clients to use. It’s not necessary for you to purchase anything for this session unless you choose to.

When to Schedule Your Newborn Session
If you would like a newborn session, please contact us prior to your baby’s birth so I can reserve time for you. We book your due date, not the session date. I can only accept a limited amount of ‘due dates’ per week to be able to accommodate when babies are born early, or late. It’s best to call early in your pregnancy to ensure availability, but I only schedule an exact day and time once your baby has arrived. The only way to reserve your due date on my calendar is with a paid deposit. Most of my clients book several months in advance to ensure availability.

Older Babies (1-12 months)
I photograph babies of any age up to about one year old. Good times to photograph are when they can hold their head up (around 4 months), when they can sit confidently on their own (around 8 months), and one year.

Special Needs Babies
I have a lot of experience with a variety of special needs and medically fragile babies. Please don’t hesitate to contact me to photograph your baby.

How Long Does A Newborn Session Take?
It is typical for a newborn session to last 3 hours, allowing plenty of time for feeding, changing, and rocking baby to sleep. I do not rush the session. I make every effort to create a relaxed and peaceful environment.

My priority is always the comfort and safety of the new babies. These sessions are calm and peaceful, as I gently and patiently take the time to perfect each pose. My experience and patient approach allows me to capture those precious moments that will be cherished for a lifetime.
