Motherhood is such a special time in a woman’s life that it deserves to be documented with an experience that you’ll never forget

Our maternity photography sessions are offered in our modern NYC studio. We use a combination of artistic lighting, combined with both modern and classic backdrops to create our signature style. We have a wardrobe of gowns, dresses, lace robes, bodysuits, and silks to accentuate your curves for maternity portraits.

We use our expertise in posing, lighting and artful image editing to turn your vision into a reality. Let our natural style of portraiture bring out the beauty of motherhood in celebration of your little miracle of life.

Your Happiness and Safety

Let’s address the elephant in the room shall we… yes, I’m male. I’ve been photographing boudoir and maternity for about 10 years. Your safety, wellbeing and happiness whilst in the studio is my highest priority. It is for that reason that we adhere to the a strict Code of Ethics.

We will have at least 1 female on set to assist with every shoot, usually 2. With these 2 amazing women on set I should never have a need to come close to or touch, and so my promise to you is that I will never do either without your express permission, each and every time and with the confirmation of verbal approval from one of my assistants. We encourage you to speak with our previous clients and to be bring your own chaperon if that would make you feel more comfortable.

One model said to me ” You’re the only photographer during my 15 year career that I’ve ever let adjust my clothes during a photoshoot”, I was both humbled and appalled by this statement. This was of the reasons I became a Consent Guardian and teach consent workshops in a non-judgemental, if you haven’t been taught, how can you know, kind of way.
