Newborn sessions are held in my Morris Park studio only Monday, Wednesday and Friday starting at 11am. The only way to reserve your due date on my calendar is with a paid retainer & submitted contract. About a month before your due date, I will send you a prep guide containing everything you need to prepare for your session. In the meantime, here are just a few basic tips...
It is VERY important that I be notified the DAY your baby arrives so we can set your appointment date. Please do not wait several days as it makes scheduling within the narrow newborn window extremely difficult. Babies that are in the NICU may be an exception to the maximum age rule. Please contact me to discuss it.
The studio is kept at 85 degrees to keep your naked baby nice and warm. It gets very hot in the studio so I recommend dressing in layers. Babies pee and poo on everything...including me, so please dont worry about it. It doesn't bother me as it is part of the job, and everything gets washed after a session.
Newborn sessions typically last four hours, so please plan accordingly. Bring something to eat and drink or you can order take out. You are welcome to bring a grandparent or relative, but it's okay to come alone too. Enjoy the 'free' time to rest...I will not be offended if you nap! Newborns are delicate and require my full attention, please make other arrangements for siblings during your newborn's session. Cameras of any kind are strictly prohibited on set.
There is no need to bring props or outfits to your newborn session. My internationally sourced prop room is stocked to the brim with adorable outfits and props for your session. If you have something of sentimental value or a specific idea please discuss it with me prior to your session so I can incorporate it into the shoot.BOOK A SESSION

Maternity sessions can take place on location or in my studio Monday, Wednesday and Friday, starting at Noon. The only way to reserve your session date on my calendar is with a paid retainer & submitted contract. When you book your session you will receive a, prep guide with all of the information you need to prepare for your session. In the meantime, here are just a few basic tips...
Maternity Sessions are photographed at 32-36 weeks when your belly is nice and round, and right before you get too uncomfortable. I have a gorgeous selection of maternity gowns and fabrics that I utilize during your session but if you have something special you would like to wear please feel free to bring it. If not, all you need to bring is a nude strapless bra and matching lace undies. The session is mostly about you, but family is welcome to be in the pictures. If it is warm out (or you are brave) I love to take maternity sessions outdoors and have a list of favorite places to shoot.

I photograph babies at two milestones only: 4 months and 7 months. Just as precious as the newborn session, 4 & 7 months is the last time your little one will sit still again. I love capturing their rolls, wide-eye curious stares and big belly laughs. There's nothing like it!
I have a collection of props and outfits for the session but I welcome anything you want to bring.
"Im very happy I went to Zoe. She is extremely professional, patient and truly a people person. On top of being creative beyond belief. I highly recommend her photography services."
