Staten Island Newborn Photographer | Carlo

Staten Island Newborn Photographer

I made my way to the Staten Island home of Crista & Rob on a beautiful Thursday in February. I would be photographing baby Carlo who was born right after Super Bowl Sunday. This was my first newborn session with my new assistant Gab. I’ve known Gab for a few years through a good friend of mine. She is a trained makeup artist with a specialization in bridal. She’s done my makeup a few times and is really amazing at what she does…well anyways it was her first time working a newborn session with me. You would have had no idea though. She was on top of everything and ready to go. We also lucked out with such an amazing baby. I made sure to warn her not to get used to this type of session. It must have been beginner’s luck =) Carlo slept the whole time, let us pose him any way and didn’t pee or poop on me. This was a “GOAL” in my book. The only thing we weren’t able to get was a sibling shot. His older brother Robbie is only 2 years old and what I like to remind my clients is that sibling shots are never a guarantee. You can have a 5 year old that doesn’t want to cooperate; especially a toddler under 3 is almost next to impossible. Besides that, Carlo made for the cutest bear in my new favorite prop and pose.

Here’s a peek into his gallery:
