"Alina is the most amazing photographer! From the initial consultation until the receipt of our photos, everything was seamless. Alina is truly a baby whisperer. We have never seen someone be able to put a newborn completely at ease, so much so that we went through the whole photoshoot without our baby crying once. Truly remarkable. Not only was the process terrific, but the photos came out amazing. Everyone who sees them is mesmerized, nobody more than mom and dad. Go to Alina if you want the best baby photo experience." - M. Toro

How Does Booking A Newborn Session Work?


Once you book your session and are on our calendar, you will contact our studio as soon as the baby is born and we will schedule the exact date of your session within the first 2 weeks.


During your session, your newborn will be in my skilled hands safely posed in my baby-led poses to ensure comfort for your baby.


All props are provided by the studio so you don't have to worry about bringing anything unless there is a family heirloom that you'd want to include, which we would discuss prior to the session.


After your session, you will receive your online gallery where you'd be able to view, select and purchase your favorite images!


Following your order, your products will be ready within 2-6 weeks depending on the product type.




Hey there!


My name is Alina, I am a newborn, child and family photographer on Long Island. I am a proud mom of 4 amazing kids and a loving wife to the most wonderful husband. I discovered my passion for photography in 2010, when I was pulled to try my hand with a digital camera when my third child was born. With an art degree, I was excited to embark on this journey. It wasn't long until newborns was all I photographed. From a young age, I have had a special love for babies. You could always find me carrying around a newborn doll or two. It is no wonder my life journey led me to documenting these precious times for families. I find immense joy in capturing tiny newborn details, new connection between baby and parents and all of the fleeting moments for families to treasure forever.


In addition to my photography work...

I cannot rave more about the dreamy newborn session we had with Alina! She was the sweetest and handled our baby girl with the utmost care. It really felt like hanging out with family and getting some beautiful pictures in the process! She went out of her way to make us comfortable, especially since I’m recovering from a c-section. The studio itself is beautiful, warm and welcoming. It has a great relaxing atmosphere which is wonderful for baby and mama (and anyone else!) I love all her personal small touches around (which I won’t spoil, you have to go in to see for yourself!) I’m so happy we found her and can’t wait to come back!

I do however love to include a family heirloom if it is appropriate to use for the session. We can discuss all of this prior to your session.


When should we book the newborn session? Anytime. But I book up pretty fast. Parents usually book their session as soon as they find out they are pregnant. But if you are late in the game, no worries, contact me and I'll see how I can accommodate you.
