NEWBORN session

Our Signature Newborn Session captures your baby's first days of life in a creative and unique way. There is nothing more beautiful than newborn photography, and we know the importance of preserving your family's most precious moments. We are proud to provide an unforgettable experience and create stunning portraits that celebrate you and the beautiful life you created.


Our Style

Our approach and style to newborn photography is clean, timeless and minimalistic, with an emphasis on your baby as the beautiful artistic subject. As a newborn photographer, Lola Melani loves to use soft colors such as white, creams, grays and pastels. 



We recommend capturing newborn portraits in the first 4-12 days when your baby is very sleepy and flexible. This is the best time to capture those precious curled-up poses. While beautiful images can be captured at any stage and we work with newborns up to 6 weeks, keep in mind that once beyond those first days we will not be able to get the sleepy, curled poses. If you are sure you want specific poses, please ask about those during your consultation. As Lola’s schedule fills up months and even years in advance, please contact us as soon as possible to ensure availability.



All newborn sessions are tailored specifically to you and your baby, and include a consultation session with Lola. You will discuss ideas on style, colors, props and wardrobe. We will work closely with you and learn from your ideas and expectations to make sure that you will have a relaxed newborn photo session. Once your session is booked, we will send you a Newborn Guide with plenty of tips on how to prepare for your baby’s first photo session.



Our studio uses natural materials for props and accessories that are gentle to your baby`s skin. Most of the hand knit soft props and wraps are made of 100% natural organic yarn. Everything is washed after each session with detergents that are free of harsh chemicals.


Your Newborn Session

We love keeping newborn portraits simple without overpowering them with props or unnatural posing. All newborn sessions are done at our beautiful state of the art studio in New York City. It has an elegant and comfortable lounge area to unwind and feed your baby, and is also equipped with a changing table stocked with organic baby products for your convenience. Your baby's comfort and safety is far more important than achieving a pretty pose. 



Professional photo retouching is included in your newborn session. We specialize in the most comprehensive and detailed editing, and while we focus on a natural look we will edit to your liking. 


Displaying Your Art

Our studio offers high quality fine art prints, gorgeous gallery wraps and elegant framed wall collections for a spectacular presentation of your most beautiful memories.
