NYC Baby Halloween Party 2017

Baby's first Halloween in New York City! Last week I photographed 18 ridiculously adorable babies in amazing costumes at a Halloween party on the Upper West Side hosted by fab mama, yoga instructor and doula Amanda Rose Walsh. I set up a soft mat in Amanda's beautiful backyard and brought a few festive props. The babies ranged in age from about 2 months to 11 months and we had everyone from Llama Llama Red Pajama to a caticorn (a rare and beautiful cat-unicorn hybrid creature sure to steal your heart). The mamas clearly put a lot of hard work into these fun and creative costumes, so my goal was to capture the costumes and their baby's sweet features. While I adore babies smiling at the camera,  I seriously love babies gumming props and being their slimy, silly selves. These kids did not disappoint. Here are just a few favorites.
