Sunset Views of the City Skyline
(nyc family photography, family photographer long island)

It’s always a super special honor to photograph the family of a fellow photographer. There’s no one who appreciates this craft more than someone who does it herself on a daily basis. There’s always a lot of effort that goes into sessions beforehand with the discussions about settings, styling, hair, make-up, best time of year, etc. It’s always worthwhile when everything falls into place so perfectly for an absolutely EPIC session. We laughed; we jumped; we skipped; we acted goofy – whatever it takes to capture those perfect moments. I have to admit that my personal favorite is the couples portrait. We’ve started making an effort to capture these at sessions, when we came to the awful realization that we haven’t had a good picture of ourselves in over a year!! As Moms and Dads, we don’t get in front of the camera often, and even more rarely together. This is magic to us. This is what it’s all about. Love. True love. Even during the madness of a family session with three energetic kiddos running around, lol. Hope you enjoy the peek!!

glimpses of the cityscape

This gorgeous family will soon be moving out of NYC,
so they’d requested the cityscape as the backdrop for their family portraits.
We took them for a walk through one of our favorite spots in Central Park.
Although their little boy may be too young to remember his first years spent in the big city,
he’ll always have these gorgeous portraits to remind him of this special time.

You did a great job making a harsh city scape soft and beautiful to add to, but not overpower these beautiful family portraits.

This family was an absolute dream to shoot… for the third time!!
Already looking forward to baby’s one-year portrait session,
when he’ll be taking his first steps on the cobblestone streets
and exploring the awesome graffiti walls of Dumbo.
Always one of our favorite locations!

behind-the-scenes maternity experience
(nyc maternity photography, pregnancy photographer long island)

Pregnancy is such a special and memorable time. Becoming a mother, bringing new life into the world,
is one of the most precious times in our lives. Through the morning sickness and swollen ankles,
the aches and pains and sleepless nights… no other job on earth compares. It’s both rewarding and relentless,
and the most exciting thing you’ll ever do. We’d love to welcome you into motherhood with a maternity portrait session
celebrating this quickly passing season of life. These are your first moments of motherhood, and they are priceless!
A professional portrait session is the perfect way to capture your gorgeous glow and intense emotions as timeless art.

Scheduling Your Maternity Photography Session
Maternity portraits are best captured around 32-36 weeks, when your belly is beautifully round and curvaceous. Timing can be different for everyone, so please be in touch as soon as possible to book your appointment.

A Day of Pampering
A maternity portrait session is more than a photo shoot. It’s a day of well-deserved pampering. Get your hair done, make-up perfected, and top it off with a manicure. We recommend natural make-up with accented cheekbones and plenty of mascara. Soft natural curls are a wonderful way to add volume and frame your face in a flattering way. We want you to enjoy your special day, and feel your absolute best!

We aim to provide the most relaxing and comfortable maternity photography experience from start to finish. We photograph fully clothed maternity portraits, as well as tastefully implied nudes. Many clients like to capture a combination of both, so you’ll have intimate portraits for your bedroom and more conservative silhouettes for the nursery.

Capture Every Curve
We understand how to pose a pregnant woman in the most flattering ways, and we take time to carefully perfect each pose. We will be guiding you throughout your session, adjusting your hair, perfecting your styles, and making sure you feel comfortable and relaxed. An abundance of natural light and professional studio lighting allow us to capture a variety of timeless glowing portraits and beautiful silhouettes.

Our style is elegant, classic, and timeless. We love to capture intimate moments that showcase your inner glow and beautiful journey into motherhood. You are more than welcome to bring your husband, significant other, or siblings to include in your shoot. This is the beginning to another chapter in your family and we know that you will want to include everyone involved.

What to Wear
Some pregnant mothers choose to showcase their bare baby bump, while others opt for a more modest session. Whichever option fits you and your personality, we will create beautiful portraits to forever save this special time of your life. We have a variety of wardrobe options in our Manhattan NYC studio, such as sheer draping, lace robes, form-fitting gowns, and flowing skirts to accentuate your curves of pregnancy. If you’d like to bring along your own styles, some flattering options are maxi skirts with a bandeau bra, flowing empire-waist dress with a cute belt, and lacy lingerie.
