redecorating the studio

There’s nothing Sophie loves more than redecorating,
so when Design Aglow reached out to feature our Midtown studio,
Sophie jumped at the opportunity. What do you think??

Here’s a little excerpt from our wonderful feature on Design Aglow, which can be viewed HERE.

What makes your studio special?
We love that clients feel right at home when they walk in the door. The natural light is incredible with two walls of large windows, and the bright glow makes the studio feel bright and cheery. The small and cozy space is perfect for capturing intimate maternity and baby portraits. Our decor is in line with our styling recommendations of getting creative with different textures, and accessorizing with pops of color. We keep the decor minimalist, so the attention is drawn to the colorful wall art, keepsake albums, and slideshow of portfolio images.

How has it helped your business?
It’s been wonderful to separate our business from our personal lives. As a husband-and-wife team, we found it difficult to shut off from work when our studio was in our home. Not to mention, as our children grew older and more active, they desperately needed a play area rather than a room filled with light stands and backdrops. Having a studio also allows us to have a dedicated space to display samples of our products, which has been very helpful for clients. Not to mention, babies enjoy an epic view of the Empire State Building from the changing table. 🙂

What products do you sell the most?
Keepsake albums and gallery wraps are some of our clients’ favorite products. Most of our clients come back several times each year, so they appreciate Michael’s hands-on approach to designing custom artwork for their homes.

Do you have any tips for opening a studio?
Everything always takes longer than you’d expect, and finding a studio space is no exception. It took us almost a year of searching and many headaches before we found the perfect space. Finding the one that’s perfect for your budget, location, ceiling height, natural light, and personal preferences means that you’ll really have to commit yourself to the process. Beware that commercial leases are quite complex, so it’s best to hire a real estate attorney to review the document for any terms that may not be in your best interest. With a minimum of three years for most commercial spaces, it’s not a commitment to take lightly. On the bright side, we’ve had a wonderful experience with our space, and we actually just renewed our lease yesterday!

giggles amidst the cityscape
(professional photography New York)

We had the pleasure of capturing this beautiful family on their first visit to the city.
They flew halfway across the world from a small town in Australia,
And it was so fun to see little boy’s reactions to all the skyscrapers.
If they look big to adults, imagine how they must look from a baby’s perspective!!

Family visiting from Australia requested Central Park and glimpses of the cityscape as the perfect backdropPhoto of baby boy playing in the grass, and giving genuine expressions

As a husband-and-wife photography team, they specialize in maternity, newborn, baby and family portraits. Their style of baby photography is fresh and authentic. They strive to capture genuine expressions and interactions. With two young children of their own, they understand the challenges of working with babies, but also appreciate the rewards. There’s nothing more fulfilling than capturing the true essence of childhood, which passes far too quickly. A photography session generally lasts 1-1.5 hours, which allows plenty of time to explore different settings while capturing a variety of styled and candid portraits of your baby and family. Michael and Sophie work together to create a relaxed and fun experience for their baby photography sessions
They avoid stiff poses and cheesy expressions, and encourage you to just be yourselves and enjoy the playful experience.

Fresh & Modern Maternity Photography
As parents ourselves, we believe that maternity portraits should be just as breathtaking as your bridal portraits. This moment is so meaningful, and the emotions are just as intense as your wedding day. Nine months may seem like an eternity, but the time somehow passes by in an instant. We want to capture the anticipation, the excitement, and the incredible love for the precious life growing inside your belly. A maternity photo session is such a special way to preserve this magical time in your family’s life.

We recommend capturing maternity portraits around 32-36 weeks in your pregnancy, when your belly is beautifully round and curvaceous. We offer maternity photography sessions in our NYC Midtown Studio or outdoors in the natural splendor of Central Park. You’re also welcome to have a portrait session in the comfort of your home, so we can incorporate the nursery and other meaningful settings. As a husband-and-wife photography team, we’re known for our intimate approach to fine art maternity portraiture. You’ll spend your morning getting pampered with hair, makeup, and manicure. During your afternoon maternity photography session, we strive to create an enjoyable and comfortable experience during which you’ll feel like a supermodel for the day!! Michael uses his expertise in post-processing to make each maternity portrait into a unique work of art. If you’re interested in scheduling your own NYC maternity photo session, please contact Sophie by email or at our Midtown studio. We look forward to hearing from you, and capturing your family’s memories for many years to come!!

Fresh & Modern Maternity Photography
Professional NYC  maternity photographer Michael Kormos specializes in creating fine art maternity portraits. His maternity portrait photography is artistic, classic and timeless. His fresh and modern approach is balanced with Sophie’s attention to detail, and together they use posing and lighting to create beautiful works of art. You’re welcome to bring along a style change, and they also have stretchy fabrics on hand for more conservative portraits.

There’s nothing cuter than lifestyle couple’s maternity portraits with a favorite children’s book. As a NYC & San Diego maternity photography husband-and-wife team, Michael and Sophie are passionate about capturing this special time in families’ lives as beautiful works of art.
