Newborn SESSIONS
Just when you think you know love, something little comes along to remind you just how BIG love really is.

Newborn sessions are held weekdays only in Zoe's Midtown Manhattan studio. 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 design guide & prep guide containing all the information you need to prepare for your session. In the meantime, here are just a few basic tips...

Book your session early! I offer a limited amount of sessions so my calendar fills up fast.

Notify me the DAY your baby arrives so we can set your appointment date.

When you get your design guide send me pictures of the nursery, and if you feel like it tell me about your journey to becoming a parent. What are you excited about? Was it planned, did it happen unexpectedly, or did it take forrrrrrever? I love getting to know all about my clients so I can create a session that is unique to you!

After you fill out the design guide, I pick out props and coordinating outfits to use at your session. My internationally sourced prop collection is stocked to the brim with beautiful custom-made outfits, props & digital backgrounds. If you give me enough notice, I can commission one of my prop artisans to make something especially for you!

You will also receive a prep guide that is important to read leading up to the session. I will be arriving ready to assemble my setups and equipment in the space already cleared and provided by you for me. After feeding and completing my setup its time to make some magic! My sessions are designed to capture beautiful, timeless, and creative memories of your newborn in the most fleeting time in their life. And if we're lucky, we might get a smile or two!

Watch your pictures come to life! Your precious memories are edited to perfection and meant to be hung on your walls to enjoy every day. Decorate your home with a curated selection of custom designed wall art and heirlooms available exclusively through my studio.

MATERNITY SESSIONS
WHEN THE BABY IS BORN, THE MOTHER AND FATHER IS ALSO BORN.

Maternity sessions take place weekdays only in Zoe's Midtown Manhattan studio or on location. 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 design & prep guide with all of the information you need to prepare for your session.

Maternity Sessions are photographed at 32-36 weeks when your belly is nice and round, and right before you get too uncomfortable.

Browse my Maternity Closet and choose from a gorgeous selection of maternity gowns, body suits, tutu's and fabrics. If you have something special you would like to wear please feel free buy it. If not, all you need is a nude strapless bra and matching undies in your skin tone.

Whether you like to be natural or glammed up, put your best face forward and add on a professional makeup application with a hand-picked, professional makeup artist. My girls are experienced in ALL face types and use only the best cosmetics & tools.

The session is mostly about you and your gorgeous glow, but family is always welcome too.

If it is warm out or you are brave (because its cold out), I love to take maternity sessions outdoors and have a list of favorite places to shoot.

You will also receive a prep guide that is important to read leading up to the session. If I am coming to your home, I will be arriving ready to assemble my setups and equipment in the space already cleared and provided by you for me.

BABY SESSIONS
Babies have a special way of putting joy in every day.

Baby sessions take place weekdays only in Zoe's Midtown Manhattan studio or on location. The only way to reserve your due date on my calendar is with a paid retainer & submitted contract. Upon booking, I will send you a design guide & prep guide containing all the information you need to prepare for your session. In the meantime, here are just a few basic tips...

Book your session early! I offer a limited amount of sessions each month so my calendar fills up fast.

I photograph babies anytime between 3-12 months but the ideal age is THE SITTER STAGE. This is when they are sturdy enough to sit but right before they can crawl away. This is such a fleeting moment. I love capturing their rolls, wide-eyed curious stares, and big belly laughs. There's nothing like it! And if I'm lucky, they fall asleep and I capture newborn poses on the beanbag. THIS makes me melt!

For sitters, we plan the session in advance but the actual booking comes within days of hitting a milestone. Since every baby develops differently, contact me immediately when your baby is sitting.

When you get your design guide, send me pictures of the nursery and tell me about your baby & family. What do they like/dislike? What kind of personality does he/she have? Is baby shy, serious or all smiles? Is your house full of family and noisy, or calm & quiet? I love getting to know all about my babies so I can create a session that is not only unique to you, but also one that makes the baby feel safe.

For sitters, I have a growing collection of props and outfits available for the session. If you want something I dont have, and if give me enough notice (6-12 weeks), I can refer you to one of my prop artisans who can make a custom designed outfit especially for you!

You will also receive a prep guide that is important to read leading up to the session. If I am coming to your home, I will be arriving ready to assemble my setups and equipment in the space already cleared and provided by you for me. Then the magic begins!

Watch your pictures come to life! Your precious memories are edited to perfection and meant to be hung on your walls to enjoy every day. Decorate your home with a curated selection of custom designed wall art and heirlooms available exclusively through my studio.
