Sunset Maternity Shoot in Brooklyn Bridge Park

This couple from Hudson County enjoyed a sunset shoot at Brooklyn Bridge Park. They had never been and being adventurers and seasoned travelers that was reason enough to make the sojourn across the iconic bridge to another borough. It was really neat photographing them with the “love locks”- apropos symbols of love everlasting since they cannot be unlocked once their keys are thrown into the river. This is a tradition carried to Brooklyn from France. I believe this couple will have love everlasting too as they spoke of their love together and dreams for the future with their baby. Can’t wait to meet the little one!

Welcome newborn Shorya!

Welcome to the world baby Shorya! This little guy was absolutely precious! Check out those macro shots of his hands and lips, absolute perfection in the smallest package! Mom and dad were world travelers and wanted a travel and safari theme for this newborn shoot. We dressed Shorya in our lion and elephant outfits and he just looked so precious. His parents also brought a sign with details about Shorya which we incorporated into the shoot. I photograph families from all over Jersey City, Short Hills, Millburn, Edgewater, and Hoboken and this family was one of the kindest I have met.

One of the reasons I feel newborn shoots are so important is that after a year of sleep deprivation, many parents forget the little details and struggle to remember the earliest moments of their baby’s lives. With Shorya’s photos this family will never forget not only how small and sweet their little lion once was, but all of his birth details! I look forward to seeing his roar as he grows into a toddler in the coming years.

 

Maternity Skyline Photos on the Newport Boardwalk

Celebrate happily ever after…and then there were three! this couple was so in love and an absolute pleasure to photograph. I photographed them on the Newport, Jersey City¬† boardwalk- the same p

lace they did their engagement and wedding photography, two other very important days in their lives. It is a great location close to Short Hills, Manhattan, and Hoboken to have beautiful skyline photos. We customized their session together using some of the same poses and locations as their wedding and engagement photos used.

One of my favorite parts about maternity photography is seeing couples connect and suggesting new ways for them to connect- a hand brushing her hair away, kissing her belly, staring into her eyes like it were the first time they fell in love…it is amazing how a small cue can create a positive memory of their session and reinvigorate a lifelong connection between people. stunning dress part of our collection of gowns by Mii-Estilo .

Nautical Newborn Session

“Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.” -C. Sagan

It was a pleasure using our imagination to transport this summer newborn to the beach using our sailboat backdrop and the many shades of blue wraps and props in our studio. While we cannot photograph newborns at the beach because of the risk of sand blowing in their eyes, we captured the essence of the joy of beach summers here in our Jersey City studio! We love capturing newborns from all over northern New Jersey including Short Hills, Millburn, Hoboken, and Edgewater.

 

Check out all the angles on those precious little feet! Can’t get enough of these sweet newborn details with my macro lens.

Styling a Maternity Shoot

“Style is something each of us already has. All we need to do is find it.” – Diane Von Furstenberg

One of my favorite things to do is style an expectant mother. Everyone deserves to feel beautiful and while pregnancy is one of the most naturally beautiful stages of life some of the changes can upset a woman’s confidence and sense of self. I like to help women through the transition of discovering the new side of their self as a mother while honoring the selves they brought to motherhood.

This maternity shoot was really fun because the mom loved bright colors. She brought her own yellow dress we incorporated into the shoot as well as two of our dresses- a bohemian light pink dress from Fillyboo maternity styled with one of our own floral headbands and a bright blue maternity dress I matched with a blue stone necklace both from our studio. The result was a gorgeous maternity shoot in Jersey City at Liberty State Park.

A lifetime of love in two hands

When an expectant mom comes to Newport Babies Photography for her maternity shoot, she isn’t just photographing her pregnant belly- she is photographing a lifetime of love that for only a brief period can be held in two hands.

This mom-to-be and her husband loved minions and came to my Jersey City studio from Hoboken to capture this special memory. We went to Branch Brook Park to capture this time with the beautiful cherry blossoms. The mom was stunning in two gowns i provided- one by Sew Trendy Accessories and one by Mii Estilo. Maternity clients choose from over 30 gowns on offer as well as bohemian gowns. She brought her minion toys and we had fun photographing them!

Skyline Car Themed Cakesmash

This beautiful family came all the way from Princeton, New Jersey for a skyline car-themed cakesmash at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. It was worth the drive, and when they finished driving it was time for their little one year old to start driving! I have never had such a smiley one year old, and another delight was how he kept saying car the whole cakesmash! His parents really picked a theme that he loved, so curious to see if it becomes a lifelong interest for him! Look forward to seeing him grow. Book your cakesmash here with Newport Babies Photography.

Cherry Blossom Maternity Shoot

One of my favorite times of year is April when all the cherry blossoms start blooming in New Jersey and New York City. I photograph moms to be and babies at Branch Brook Park in Newark and in Hoboken and Jersey City depending where the blossoms are in fullest bloom. I had so much fun photographing this dad and mom-to-be who are expecting twins. They enjoyed swinging on my custom floral swing and wearing couture outfits I own from Sew Trendy Accessories and Mi Estilo. Head over to my website for Newport Babies Photography

to check out my portfolio and book your session. There are lots of beautiful flowers between April and September blooming!

Where the Wild Things Are Cakesmash

What a pleasure to see this little one turn one! He came to us for christmas mini sessions for his sitter milestone shoot and now returned to celebrate his first birthday in Jersey City at our studio! His parents had a great idea of a where the wild things are cakesmash- fantastic inspiration from a storybook. There was certainly a wild rumpus, and everyone in the room wanted to eat him up they loved him so! (a line from the book- we don’t eat babies here). We concluded with family photos which is an add-on option in our studio. A very happy birthday to this little guy thanks for coming to us in Newport for your cakesmash.
