Thank you so much for taking the time to inquire! Custom newborn photography is unlike any other type of photography. It is very special and requires an investment of trust in the person that will be working with your precious new baby. Your photos will be cherished memories forever and heirlooms to future generations.
The actual session is only the beginning of creating these precious memories; after your session I will spend an extensive amount of time selecting and editing the best images to showcase in your gallery. I can say without a doubt that working with newborns is my passion.
I am a professional photographer serving the Central Jersey area. I specialize in custom portraiture of newborns and my studio is located in Red Bank, NJ
Careful consideration has been given to price so I am able to offer each and every client the very best customer service, creativity for your session and most importantly, a great experience.

Newborn Session takes place. This session can take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours.
One to two weeks after your session, your gallery will be complete. You will have 30 + images to choose from.
BOOKING YOUR SESSION: The best time to book your newborn session is during your 5th or 6th month of pregnancy (or earlier) to ensure I’m available when your little bundle of joy arrives. I average 3 - 4 sessions a week and my schedule fills up very fast.
The best time to photograph your newborn is between 10-14 days while they are still in that sleepy and curly stage. After two weeks of age, they tend to be disturbed while sleeping. They can also become colicky or baby acne can start to flare.
PREPPING FOR YOUR NEWBORN SESSION: I ask that you nurse or feed your baby right before you leave to head my way. A full baby = a sleepy baby.
If at all possible try to keep your newborn stimulated a couple of hours prior to our session so he/she will be ready to fall asleep in a cuddly and warm blanket. The best way to photograph your newborn is in their birthday suit. Clothes tend to be bulky and awkward.
SIBLINGS/FAMILY: I do welcome sibling/family shots during a newborn session; however, I prefer sibling shots be taken at the beginning of the session.
PROPS: I supply all of the props. In light of COVID-19, I am no longer allowing use of outside props. I am always open to new ideas! If you see something you like in any of my galleries, be sure to mention it before your session.
EQUIPMENT: I take pride in my work and only shoot with top of the line equipment. I currently shoot with a Canon6D, 50 1.2, and Tamron 24 - 70 2.8
TURNAROUND TIME: Turn around time is about 14 - 21 days after your session.
