artistic editing
(nyc newborn photography studio, westchester newborn photographer)

As a portrait photographer, my passion is creating beautiful custom imagery that will be
treasured by your family for generations. As a parent, I want you to remember your newborn
as being tiny, adorable, and perfect in every way. This is your sweet angel, your bundle of joy
and happiness that you’ve anxiously waited for months to cuddle.

As you can see in the before & after sample below, my style of artistic editing is natural, soft and dreamy.
After color correcting for the perfect skin tones, I carefully minimize temporary elements that are distracting
from the overall appeal of an image to enhance the natural beauty. For example, newborn rashes,
skin discolorations, bruises, diaper marks, eye crust, dried milk around the mouth, or patches of dark hair
on the back and shoulders. These are all conditions that will fade away naturally within a few weeks.
Every baby is unique, and that’s what I strive to capture with my portraiture. I want you to be able to
enlarge every image from your gallery as a 40×60 work of art to be displayed proudly in your home.
Of course NYC wall space is limited, but a photographer can dream. 🙂
You’re welcome to view additional samples of newborn portraits in the Gallery and Blog sections of our site.

Our favorite NYC settings
(nyc family photography, family photographer westchester)

Fall is finally here!! With cooler temperatures and colorful foliage, here are some of our favorite locations for capturing holiday portraits!

Central Park: Located in the heart of Manhattan, Central Park offers a beautiful blend of natural settings uptown and cityscape backdrops downtown.  People tend to spend more time indoors and holiday shopping in the Fall months, which means the park is far less crowded than usual. Not to mention, earlier sunset times means happier babies (who aren’t out past their bedtime) and amazing photos!! Large open fields allow children to roam free and act like the silly kids they are! We love to also incorporate iconic settings such as Bethesda Fountain and The Mall.  For visiting client who wish to capture the NYC cityscapes and Fall foliage, we always recommend Sheep Meadow for the best of both worlds!

Gantry Plaza Park: Located just across the bridge from Midtown Manhattan, Gantry Plaza Park is a hidden gem! It’s far less  crowded than Central Park, and offers lovely boardwalk settings with modern benches and stunning views of the NYC skyline. We lovephovtographing here at golden hour for the most beautiful glow, and even once the sun goes down as all the lights come on in the Chrysler and Empire State buildings!

Brooklyn Bridge Park: Shooting in the trendy neighborhood of Dumbo Brooklyn is always a fun adventure.  Perfect for residents of Lower Manhattan, the beautiful skyline views are the perfect backdrop for family portraits.  The beautifully restored Jane’s Carousel is always a favorite amounts children of all ages.  As an added bonus, there are epic views of both the Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge to add some fun NYC flair to portraits!

Coney Island: The creative possibilities here are endless! You have the boardwalk, the amusement park, the beach, and all the fun surrounding areas!  Coney Island sessions are wonderful for older children who can get playful with a giant lollipop, cotton candy or even a New York classic Nathan’s hotdog! Coney Island has so many fun and colorful settings to really make your session unique!

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

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!!

Decor Tips for In-Home Family Photography
(newborn photography nyc, westchester baby photographer)

It can be nerve-wracking to let a photographer come into your home for family photos. Many families worry about how their homes will look as the backdrop of their photos. So today, this post is all about how to let your home decor style shine and get your place in tip-top shape for your session. Don’t worry though, all of these tips are very easy to implement!

We love to photograph baby and family portraits in meaningful settings within the home. The nursery is always ideal, since parents have decorated the room with so much love and anticipation for the arrival of their little one. You can just feel those emotions when you’re in the room, and we love to capture those tender moments. Decor pieces can often lend to that sentimental feeling and we love to photograph special details such as a handmade baby blanket or toys passed down from previous generations. Don’t be afraid to tell us the story behind your decor!

The master bedroom and living room are also lovely additional settings. We ask parents to clear any clutter, and photograph with creative angles for the most flattering backdrops that are free of distractions. This goes for your decor as well. Try to limit yourself to just a few favorite decor pieces that really express your style in each room to avoid a visually cluttered look. This also allows the pieces you do display to really pop in photos.

One important detail to think about when you’re preparing your home for photos is the proportion of the furniture in your rooms. If your furniture is too big or too small for the room it’s in, it is going to be glaringly obvious in photos.

Step back and take a critical eye to your room layout. Is your rug the correct size for your space? Is your coffee table way too big next to your couch? Changing up the proportions of your furniture can help your room look more balanced. Instead of your eye being drawn to an out-of-place piece of furniture, your decor will grab the attention. This can sometimes be difficult to gauge, so don’t be afraid to enlist the help of professionals like the interior designers at Havenly. They’re an interior design service that’s available completely online, so it’s quick and easy to get some advice before a shoot.

There are plenty of easy, finishing touches you can give a room to give it a quick refresh before a shoot. We love to add a fresh cut flower arrangement to help perk up any area of the house. You can put some of your child’s recent artwork in a frame for a unique personal touch that won’t clash with the rest of your decor. A few books stacked up on an end table can give an interesting pop of color. These are all easy decor choices that can make a big impact on your space.

So don’t be afraid of inviting a photographer into your home for a family session! We’d love to capture your family and your home so those memories can be preserved for years to come. To book your own portrait session, please reach us at our Midtown studio!
