Petite Studio Sessions

Petite Studio Sessions are weekday portrait sessions for maternity or mommy & me portraits at Nicole’s Upper West Side photography studio on West 96th St. Your session fee includes:

45 minutes of studio time

High end wardrobe for mama, babies & children up to age 5

10-15 fully edited and retouched portraits as high resolution digital files with print release

You can add on hair and makeup with my incredible stylist, Liza Ray, to ensure you feel great and look luminous in your portraits. Liza will come to your home or meet you at my studio prior to your session to create any hair style of your choice, give you flawless skin, and gorgeous lashes that look stunning (and natural) in photographs. Look like the most polished, well rested version of your usual self, or opt for a touch of glamour or bohemian flare.

Please note that petite studio sessions do not include an in person viewing and design appointment. If you are looking for a completely custom portrait session, or boutique services such as guidance on fine art prints, custom framing and heirloom album design, a full portrait session would be ideal for you. 

To secure your petite session, 50% of your session fee is due at the time of booking and the remainder on or before your session date.


Petite Maternity Studio Session - $600

There is no feeling like waiting to meet your baby. These relaxed studio sessions are designed to capture the joy and excitement of waiting for baby’s arrival and celebrate mama’s beautiful form. Your session includes use of over 35 incredible dresses and lace robes, all of which are proven to be flattering and photograph beautifully. You may use as many as you wish during your 45 minute studio session and all pieces borrowed during your session are professionally dry cleaned afterwards for others to enjoy. I highly recommend booking Liza’s optional hair & makeup services to have you feeling and looking your best during your maternity session. Please note that maternity minis are for portraits of mama only; if you would like to include your partner or children, please upgrade to a custom portrait session. Maternity sessions are best held when mama is between 32-36 along.    

Mommy & Me Studio Session - $800

Mommy & Me Sessions are for classic portraits of you and your baby or child aged 100 days or older. These sessions capture the precious details of your little baby, celebrate baby’s milestones, and document your beautiful relationship with your baby. While mama is not required to participate, I promise you will never regret getting in the images for a few snuggles with baby or laughs with your child, and when your little one is grown he or she will treasure those images the most. I make preparation super simple by providing beautiful, flattering dresses that will make you feel gorgeous and let you focus on your littlest love. Simply Baby Sessions include one baby/child and one parent; if you would like to include your partner or additional child, please upgrade to a custom portrait session.
