Where are you?
I live in Brooklyn but am available for sessions within the metro NYC area. (Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, etc including Jersey City, NJ.)
How much does a session cost and what do I get?
Go to my pricing page to look at the prices and packages. I provide edited high resolution pictures in an online password protected gallery with a print release. I also provide prints and albums if you are interested for additional fees.
What are your COVID precautions?
Take a look at this blog post to see what practices I am putting in place.
How do I get the pictures?
All pictures are delivered via an online gallery. You receive access to be able to download, share and print them whenever you want.
Can you change how I look?
I edited in a natural style to capture the beauty and realness of who you are. I want you to look at your pictures and be in love with the life you have with those you love. If you are looking for a makeover or to lose 10lbs in your pictures, I will not be the photographer for you. If you need some more extensive editing done that will be at an additional price.
Where should my session be?
This is something I am happy to discuss with you to be able to give you the best fit. A few favorites – your home, your favorite park, your favorite area of the city, your favorite outing together. Several of the major city parks are great locations too.
If you don’t do “posing” won’t I be awkward?
My goal is to make your sessions as relaxed, authentic and enjoyable as possible. While I don’t do lots of posing (aside from a few photos for Grandma), I do LOTS of direction. Guiding you, cheering you and giving you the knowledge to relax!
I don’t want my photos online.
No problem. Some of my clients do not want me to use their photos online and I am very happy to serve you in that way.
What time should I schedule my session?
For outdoor sessions golden hour is my favorite. The first 2 hours after sunrise and the 2 hours before sunset. The dreamy light you get is what makes most sessions pop. Here in the city morning golden hour allows more freedom with out the worry of lots people around.
For in home sessions I ask for you to watch for what time your home is filled with the most light and then we discuss form there as to what works best for your family!
For NEWBORN session
These are in your home. I come to you so you don’t have to worry about leaving, exposing your newborn to a unfamiliar environment and allow you to relax. One window will allow us the light we need to do a lot!
When should I schedule?
With newborn sessions, contact me as soon as you know you want a session. We put a “guess date” in the calendar and then after your newborn is born we’ll discuss from there. Newborn sessions are best within the first 6 weeks.
All other sessions I prefer to schedule 4 weeks in advance but I am flexible so contact me and see if the date you want is open!
