Those first few days of a child’s life are incredibly special but also so fleeting. That’s why newborn photography sessions are so popular, enabling parents to freeze that moment with all of its tiny gorgeousness.

Brooklyn-based parents don’t have to go far to find exceptional newborn photographers, with several well-reviewed studios in the district. Read on to be inspired by the work of 10 of the best photographers specializing in newborn shoots.

Jennifer Young Photography

Considering her dad was a photographer, it should come as no surprise that Jennifer Young also chose to pursue a creative career. Her newborn images are authentic, natural, and flattering, with sessions that are just as relaxed as Jennifer is. She says that she does what she does because she wants her kids to remember what growing up in her family was like and so that they have photos to share with their own kids one day. In making her photography skills accessible to others, she is helping other parents to capture their family at that moment in time and have images to pass on to future generations.

Brooklyn Baby Photography

Based out of a studio in Brooklyn, Brooklyn Baby Photography works with new parents throughout the New York metropolitan area. When you book a shoot with the owner and lead photographer Rosie, you can take advantage of the studio’s high-end wardrobe and diverse range of props to style your session with the aesthetic you desire. In addition to maternity shoots and newborn sessions, Rosie also captures first birthdays at her Brooklyn studio and receives rave reviews for her patience.

Kimmie W. Photography

Kimmie Washam is the woman behind the camera at Kimmie W. Photography and has been described as professional, patient, and an extremely gifted photographer by previous clients. She has a gentle touch and intuitive nature when working with babies, as well as being talented at photographing families as their children grow.

Kimmie says that she has always loved taking pictures but it wasn’t until she was working as a nanny and started seeing the images she had taken appear in frames around the house that she knew she had a natural talent.

Shirly Schvartzman Photography

Shirly Schvartzman Photography specializes in newborn and child photography for clients in Brooklyn and the surrounding areas. Based out of her Park Slope studio, Shirly has an aesthetic that has been described as organic and earthy. She provides everything you need for a newborn session, including a warm and relaxing environment, plus plenty of props. Her shoots can be tailored to your personal needs and requirements while her images will capture the “sweet essence of your newborn” so that it lasts a lifetime.

Rochel Konik Photography

Originally from Lithuania, Rochel Konik moved to New York more than a decade ago and now calls Brooklyn “home.” She says that she is “passionate about small humans and getting creative,” which is why she has chosen to specialize in newborn and baby portraiture.

As a mom to three children herself, Rochel understands the importance of documenting those precious first moments and all of the tiny little features that make new humans so incredible.

Justine Cooper Photography

Justine Cooper says that as a photographer, she just wants to “put it all together for you” during sessions that are fun and real. She believes that modern family and newborn photography is all about creating what you need, which is different from family to family. Ultimately, she wants all of her subjects to “feel at ease, connected, and in good hands” and it’s this that her team delivers again and again. Justine works alongside associate photographers Petra and Ryan to deliver work that their clients rave about.

Vee’s Vision Photography

Maternity and newborn photography is the specialty of Vee’s Vision Photography, which offers everything from black-and-white newborn sessions to family portraits and boudoir. “Uniquely playful and timeless” are the goals of the owner and lead photographer Vanessa Velez DeGarcia, a classically trained artist who holds a BFA in photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Vee’s Vision operates out of a 120-year-old yellow brick townhouse with amazing views of the Manhattan skyline.

Abby Cope Photography

Abby Cope is an award-winning maternity, newborn, and family photographer who serves clients throughout the New York metropolitan area. She has worked as a professional photographer since 2006, drawing on her formal training in the prestigious photojournalism program at the University of Florida and in the advertising and studio program at Syracuse University. Abby’s approach to newborn photography is not only technical, however, with the artist having a gentle nature and a true love of children.

Lauren Colchamiro Photographer

Lauren Colchamiro grew up at a time when family photos meant one thing - going to a studio and being perfectly posed, then all smiling at the camera with a big “cheese!” Thankfully, things have changed and her take on newborn photography is more of a documentary approach while still being infused with all the nostalgia of family portraiture. Lauren says that sometimes the best shot of the day is a “perfect, smiling portrait” while on others, it’s “one of the goofy outtakes.”

Andria Lancaster Photography

Andria Lancaster is not only a Brooklyn-based newborn photographer but also a mother who understands the urgency of preserving those first moments of a baby’s life. She offers a full-service experience for families living in Brooklyn and the surrounding areas and creates beautiful images that can be transformed into wall art or displayed in family albums. Originally from St. Georges, Grenada, Andria loves to laugh and aims to capture the joy and fun of family life in her imagery.
