I love baby cheeks! And this adorable little newborn has the most scrumptious cheeks. And baby toes, lips, eyelashes…pretty much all newborn features are super adorable. I am sometimes in awe over how tiny and squishy newborns are when they are just under 2 weeks old. I love that I get to capture these precious first moments of their life for their parents. Best job ever!

  • Mandy levine - Hi

    I’m interested in having a newborn photoshoot done. My little man is 8 days old and would love to have it done before 12 days if you can fit me in your schedule. Can you send me your rates and your address?

I’ve decided this session definitely deserves the title “Where the Wild Things Are” since these boys were definitely adventurous and full of energy. They sure did keep me on my feet and chasing after them to get the shot. It was by far one of the most challenging sessions since the youngest decided he did not want his picture taken and was intent on shielding his face every time I came near. But with some help and bribery from mom we got some awesome one on one shots just as the sun was setting. I loved this family’s spirit and their playfulness and I hope I captured that here.

I am so excited to share this session from my photo shoot in Central Park. The cherry blossoms in late April made the prettiest backdrop for this family session. I had the honor of first meeting this family at Luc’s newborn session back in November and here he is at 6 months! Time sure does fly! Luc totally rocked it by sitting up all by himself and even flashing a little grin.

I really enjoy capturing babies at all stages of their first year of life. They really do change and grow so fast and it’s so fun to watch them start smiling and learning to find their feet! This next little lady was a joy to photograph! Roman was just about 4 months when we shot this session in her beautiful Park Slope home. Mom and dad love simple no prop photography so we photographed Roman in her birthday suit on a white bed and I love the results. I think the saying less is more is definitely appropriate here…

A few weeks ago I got to meet and shoot another amazing couple for their maternity session. These are my absolute favorite sessions. I am so lucky because the moms I shoot are just gorgeous and Adrienne is no exception. I love the way the sun gives her a beautiful hair light and her skin that perfect glow. Best of luck to this couple who will welcome their baby boy soon!
