“You will never have this day with your children again. Today is a gift, breathe and notice. Study their faces and feet. Relish in the charms of the present, enjoy today mama, it will be done before you know it.” -Jab Hatmaker

Frequently Asked

What is your photography style? 

I am all about capturing authentic connections. This includes getting you interacting and focusing on those in-between moments, all while having fun together, that’s where the magic happens.

What time of day should I schedule my session?

Sessions are done at golden hour (1-2 hours before sunset) or during sunrise.

When should I book my maternity session? 

Maternity sessions are best when done between 30-34 weeks.

What if my kids won’t engage?

That’s okay! I don’t require kids to do anything they are not comfortable doing. I prompt, ask lots of questions and act silly to lighten the mood which in turn gets them engaged. 

Where do sessions take place?

Sessions take place either in the comfort of your own home or a location in or around the New York City area.

What if it rains? 

Rescheduling is always an option. 

When will I receive my images?

I have a two-week turnaround time. Once your gallery is ready, you will receive a link and password to access your images.

Do you offer prints/albums?

Prints, albums and other products can be purchased separately through the online gallery.

How long do sessions last?

Session typically lasts anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes, newborns usually longer since we stop for feedings and changing.

What should we wear?

You will have access to my client closet, my style guide and a service I use to help pick and coordinate outfits (Style & Select).

How do I pay?

I will send you an invoice and contract. Once you pay the $100 nonrefundable retainer, you will be all set.

"We had an amazing experience at our family photo shoot. She made us feel so comfortable that it didn't even feel like a session. She told us to just be ourselves and enjoy. Looking through the pictures it is obvious she loves what she does. She has a gift of capturing emotions naturally. I highly recommend her."

AN AMAZING experience

"...We absolutely LOVED our experience with Anastasia! The photos came out amazing! She has such an unbelievable talent and an incredible eye for catching the most beautiful moments. Right from the start we were so relaxed and comfortable with her. If I could give her more stars I would."

I just can't say enough

"Being a mother of three, I was a little stressed about having the shoot to begin with. She put me at ease knowing she’s also a mother of two. I love her modo, go with the flow. You begin to realize the more natural things flow, the better your pictures will be. She did just that and she truly caught some of the most beautiful shots I’ve ever seen. Thank you so much for your time and excellence."

"The best part about working with Anastasia is that she is a professional around crazy hectic families and really knows how to work within that dynamic. I was certain shooting with our newborn son and our anxiety-prone dog looked a hot mess, but the photos really came out beautifully."

Brilliant, really.
