Newborn & Maternity Sessions
You’re slightly obsessed. You’ve pinned 273 photos of sleeping newborns to your Pinterest board.
You go goo-goo ga-ga over those ridiculously sweet poses. Like…
The tiny angel who fits snugly in her daddy’s oversized hands.
Or the curled-up sweetie with the naked baby buns.
Or the darling whose little fingers curl loosely into a fist.
We’re obsessed too.
We love to photograph those endearing baby gazes that make your heart turn to mush. (And make you wonder if you gave birth to a real angel.)
When you work with us, here’s what you can expect:
YOU GET THE FULL-SERVICE LUXURY EXPERIENCE
Unlike other photographers, we don’t just take photos of your baby, email you a link, and say buh-bye. We’re a full-service boutique photography business. We choose quality over quantity, booking only one client per day so we can give our thoughtful and dedicated attention.
To us, photography is an art. It should be valued more than pixels on a computer screen. We create and design photographic art and heirlooms that’s meant to be touched, cherished, and preserved for generations.
We thoughtfully walk you through the photography process – from consulting you and finding out your needs – all the way to designing your final art pieces. In the end, your photographs will have true-to-life colors on high-quality, archival products.
YOUR BABY IS 100% SAFE
The ideal time to photograph your baby is when she’s between 6-12 days old. We’ll place her into those sweet, curled-up poses. And we’ll do this gently and safely in our cozy Cornwall, NY Studio. We practice extreme vigilance, so we always have an assistant nearby when we’re photographing away. Worried about yucky germs? Not on our watch. Our studio is sanitized after each session, and our staff are CPR-trained and fully vaccinated. We’re also licensed and fully insured. With over 8 years exclusively working with Newborns, your little one is safe with us.
YOUR PHOTO SESSION: LAUGHS, GIGGLES, AND RELAXATION
Those first days with Baby can be a challenging time of adjustment. That’s why we want Mom and Dad to soak up the sweetness of those days too. During the session, our parents can stand right next to their angel, squealing at every adorable pose. Or they can relax in our cozy parent lounge, read a magazine, or have a warm coffee. (Or take a nap. Yes, parents have done that!)
