NATURAL LIGHTING FAMILY PHOTOJOURNALIST FOR NEW YORK AND SURROUNDING AREAS
Your baby will change so much during that first year. In what seems like the blink of an eye, a tiny helpless bundle is transformed into an active and inquisitive toddler. Baby portrait sessions are a wonderful way to capture your child’s first milestones and blossoming personality. From quirky smiles and giggles to the excitement of sitting, crawling, and… walking!!
SCHEDULING… I recommend planning your baby portraits around the following milestones:
• 6 Months: Sitting, smiling, and starting to show their personality.
• 9 Months: On the move! Crawling, rolling, and giggles galore.
• 12 Months: Standing, cruising, or even taking first steps. We love ending sessions with a cake smash to celebrate their very first birthday.
HOW LONG WILL MY SESSION LAST?… Sessions typically last 1-1.5 hours. There is plenty of time for diaper changes, snacks, and cuddles to put your baby at ease. We encourage you to bring along a change of outfit and accessories to add variety to your child’s portraits. Our spontaneous and silly approach allows us to capture those unexpected moments that become the most beautiful, meaningful portraits.
STUDIO, OUTDOORS, OR ON-LOCATION?… Baby portraits may be captured in our studio, in your home, or at the outdoor location of your choice. My studio is my home where is a warm and cozy environment with an abundance of natural light. I love love love photographing baby and family portraits in the natural splendor of the outdoors. The vibrant colors and textures provide a stunning backdrop. Choosing a location that is special to your family is a wonderful way to add a personal touch to your images. I have lots of favorite locations, and I’m always happy to help you select the ideal setting for your shoot.
WHAT TO WEAR… Clothing is a key element for beautiful, timeless portraits. I love to photograph babies in a cute diaper cover, well-fitting favorite outfit, or a simple onesie. Clothes that have texture, like cable-knit sweaters, corduroy, lace, and ruffles photograph beautifully in baby portraits. As for Mommy and Daddy, we recommend simple, classic apparel that reflects your style. Have fun with accessories and layers to add dimension to your portraits.
