NEW YORK CITY PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURING LIGHT, BRIGHT & authentic MOMENTS OF YOU & YOUR FAMILY.

nyc Family Photography

My goal as your NYC lifestyle photographer for families is to guide you through a fun, easy family photo session that results in images you will love for a lifetime. While we will always get a few classic, looking-at-the-camera shots, the emphasis is on candid, real moments and creating images that show you and your family as your authentic selves.

I guide you through the photography session from start to finish in a variety of ways - from helping you choose the best location for your photos, to assisting with outfit selection to ensure you all look your best, to providing you with prompts during the session that get everyone smiling and interacting in a natural, laidback way.

My style is organic and natural - the images I create for you will feel timeless and classic. I'm here to bring out the best in what's already there between you and your family - the real smiles, the sweet laughs, and the genuine emotion and connection you share.

Your kids grow and change so fast - in the flurry of busy, everyday life, I want to make sure you have something beautiful to enjoy now, as well as treasures to look back on in the years to come.

As an NYC lifestyle photographer for families I have lots of tricks up my sleeve for getting kids’ attention and keeping them engaged - from snacks to games and songs, I pull out all the stops to make sure we get those genuine smiles and expressions from your kids.

No stiff smiles, no “say cheese” - my approach is about cultivating authentic moments that reflect the true personality and spirit of your little one. 

We had absolutely the BEST session with Jackie! She made us feel so comfortable and was so patient taking photos with our 10-month-old. Our photos came out absolutely stunning and were way better than we could've imagined! I'm so grateful for her ability to capture these sweet moments of our little family. We will definitely be reaching out to her again for more family sessions and cannot recommend her services enough. She's amazing!

Jackie did a wonderful job photographing my daughter's first birthday ceremony ("dohl") and also capturing all the extended family members who were present. She was great getting the kids' attention and found all the spots with amazing natural light around the house. Even my husband was commenting on how great of a job she did after looking at the photos. We will definitely be working with Jackie again in the future!

We had a wonderful experience working with Jackie for our family session in Central Park with our 6 month old. She made us feel so comfortable and put us at ease instantly - she was an absolute joy! Jackie was extremely professional and communicative before and during the session - she even suggested moving our time up so that we could capture the best lighting. We will absolutely treasure the beautiful photos forever and cannot recommend her enough!

We had a wonderful family photo session with Jacqueline in June in Central Park and could not have been happier with it. Although it was our first time meeting her, Jacqueline put us all quickly at ease with her warm and friendly demeanor. She was patient with us when my infant daughter got fussy. Our photo gallery was received less than two weeks later, and we are thrilled with the results. We plan to use Jacqueline for our family photography needs moving forward.

Jackie took beautiful family photos for us and captured all the sweet in-between moments. She tried to make sure that we had a great session, right from sending a questionnaire making sure she knew what kind of photos I wanted to placing a monkey on her camera to entertain my toddler! She is very skillful in bringing out genuine smiles and laughs. She also knows so many wonderful locations in NYC for photos.
I highly recommend her for your family photos!

What a great experience! I'd been wanting some family prints for a while now but studio sessions just aren't our thing. Jackie is thoughtful, prepared, and I highly recommend booking with her! We'll definitely be booking again soon! She's a gem!

Jackie made taking photos so easy. We are not the most photogenic couple and can be super awkward at times, but she made us feel comfortable and relaxed. We came out of our photoshoot laughing and thought to ourselves, "even if the photos don't turn out, at least we had a great time!" But our photos turned out beautifully and more than what we expected. She is very professional and has a great eye for lighting and background. I can't say enough about how happy we are with how the photos turned out.

- emily and zack

I worked with Jacqueline to take some photographs of our then 7 month old baby. Those photos turned out absolutely wonderful and we decided to work with her again for my daughter's first year photos. Once again, the photos were outstanding and we loved every one of them! We'll definitely find another opportunity to work with her in the near future.

How it works

Before your NYC lifestyle photography session I will send you a questionnaire so I can learn about you and your family, and your ideas and preferences for the session. This way I can tailor the experience specifically to your family's needs. I'll help you pick out the perfect outfits by sending you Pinterest boards with links and inspiration, as well as offering personalized guidance and my best tips and tricks honed from my years of experience. I'll also help you with picking the best location for outdoor sessions. 

Before the session

1

During the session, it's all about relaxing and interacting with your kids! You'll never be left standing there wondering what to do in front of the camera - I'll keep you feeling comfortable and supported as I guide you through the session with prompts and laidback instruction. My goal is to keep everyone feeling relaxed - no stiff posing, no fake smiles. Yes, we'll get that perfect shot looking at the camera - but the majority of the session will be about creating joyful moments between you and your little ones. That's when the real magic happens!

Within two weeks of your session, I will be in touch to set up a time for you to view the edited photos from your session. You'll have a three day window to choose your favorites and purchase your digital file package and/or artwork. I'll be there to help you decide how you'd like to enjoy your lifestyle photos in terms of artwork. If you're interested, we can put together a custom heirloom album, design a gallery wall and order framed artwork, create a custom matted album or folio - or you can just purchase digital files. The choice is yours!
