Lifestyle newborn and family session

Photography at your home, documenting the true dynamics of your family, using natural light. Lifestyle newborn photography is different from posed newborn photography.  It is more free flowing with a focus on simplicity, connection and storytelling.

Fresh 48

Those special sessions are for families who want the first few hours of their newborn life captured without having the entire labor or birth documented. Taken at the hospital within the first 24-48 hours of your baby's life, those lifestyle seasons are perfect for remembering those first couple of days forever.

I specialize in family, newborn baby candid children portraits, photojournalism, commercial, theater, on-set, event & real-estate photography. An established professional with a discerning artistic eye and a low-key journalistic approach, capturing a true, unique vision of you and the people who touch your life.

I started photographing portraits of children and adults on the streets of New York City while attending photography school & found myself drawn to candid photography of the people around me. After graduation, I traveled extensively with my camera photographing various people who I came across while traveling around the country and the world. I opened my first studio 23 years ago.
