Life with Zoe

Zoe Hiigli | New York Newborn & Maternity Photographer

Hi, I'm Zoe, and this is my son, Max (when he was just 6 months old-he's 16 now, see below). We're obsessed with creating memories with our family, good food, the beach, and anything having to do with art.

There is nothing more exciting than the arrival of a baby. My baby is 16 now, but it feels like yesterday I brought him home from the hospital. Everyone told me that time would fly, but I never anticipated just how fast it would go until the moment was long gone. That's why I'm so passionate about what I do. In the end, all we have is our pictures.

ZHS is MY baby. The day I realized I wanted to be a newborn photographer, I had a 20 year career as an art director. Even though I was in a creative field, I didn't love my job. Everything changed when I found my incredible school, Creative Live. Through them, I found my way to becoming a fully-trained newborn & maternity photographer and small business owner. Becoming a photographer felt a lot like giving birth! lol Beautiful, scary, expensive, painful, completely awe-inspiring, and worth every penny. My studio is a beautiful & cozy, well stocked haven for your newborn, baby and maternity sessions. I love that I wake up every single day excited to do my job.I can't wait to be YOUR photographer and preserve a special memory for you!

With Love, Zoe
