Baby Eliza–Upper West Side, NY, NY

I photographed newborn baby Eliza in May and just loved this little doll!  Her mom chose some great props and lots of adorable pink clothing to jazz up our photos.  I always choose to do newborn photos in my clients’ home rather than in a studio for several reasons–the family and newborn are most comfortable in their own space, I like to photograph the nursery and small personal details (we posed Eliza on blankets knit by her mom and her grandma), and most importantly, the photos often exude a bit of the environment and family personality. This was definitely the case here, as Eliza’s big brother filled our shoot with happy action while their adorable dog, Sydney, supervised.  We managed a few family photos (yay), but Eliza was the real star–gazing out the window in awe of her new world and then snoozing comfortably as I snapped away.

Ellen, Patrick, Luke, Eliza, and Sydney, it was a pleasure to photograph your growing family, and I can’t wait to see how much Eliza has changed when we return from our travels!
