Brooklyn Newborn Portrait: Baby Amelie by Denise DeBelius

Baby Amelie was born five weeks before her December 23rd due date, so this Christmas baby reinvented herself as a November arrival. However, the Grinsteads scheduled her newborn session approaching her due date and we accented with some festive Christmas shots to celebrate the season and mark her extra days with them!

Brooklyn Newborn Portrait: Baby Parker by Denise DeBelius

Shawn and Rachel had me over to their place bordering the East River one November weekend to capture their first portrait as a family of three! Parker is just about six weeks old in these photos; very much still a sleepy baby, but one also starting to reward her parents with those first gummy smiles. 

New Jersey Newborn Portraits: Baby Judah by Denise DeBelius

I visited the Todds at their home in Jersey City during late October, when Baby Judah was ten days old. He was very interested in watching the world around him, but we snuck a few sleepy shots. Congrats to the new parents!

I took the Steinwand family portraits back in July along with Joann’s maternity portrait. We returned to the same spot over Thanksgiving week to update their family pictures with their newborn, Alexander.
