Documenting family magic...
and finding ways to foster community
What we do...
intimate and casual maternity photos
One of our favorite Kinship sessions to offer. We want to help you document this crazy time in your life. Your body is no longer just yours, and your duo is about to become a trio. Or maybe you are about to add a long awaited sibling. Whatever the situation, this is the edge of a new experience that you will not want to forget. We understand that maternity photos are not for everyone, but keep in mind that Kinship aims to make them relaxed and about more than just the belly. It's about you, and your partner or your family and who you are before this baby.
candid and cozy moments with your babe
Our newborn sessions won't pose your baby with blankets and props. Rather we want you to soak up this moment with them. Feel how soft their little feet are, or how delicious they smell. We focus on interactions with you, your family and your new little one. These sessions are slower paced to allow for breaks and feedings when necessary.
focused on fun and personalities
Family sessions with Kinship are more than just photo sessions, they are fun! I want your kid to feel like I am the cool aunt coming over to play and hang out. We will go with the flow of your kid, and include some of their favorite activities. I wont rush them to be friendly, or to smile right away. I will get to know them and let the joy come out naturally through play and interaction with their family.
a little love from some of my favorite people
Amy was such a pleasure to work with! She immediately connected with our three-year-old which made the entire experience truly stress free. He had so much fun (and still talks about her!) and in turn, we did too! We couldn’t be happier with how the pictures turned out. She really does capture the little moments in life that we never want to forget and our son’s personality and energy came through in every single picture. I can’t imagine having anyone else document our family in the future.
My family had such an incredible experience during our session with Amy. She arrived to the location early and was ready to start shooting immediately. We felt completely comfortable and loved the way she shot so clandestinely. We were definitely looking for more candid, less “pose-y”, style of photos, and she totally nailed that. The photos were gorgeous and exactly what we wanted. A million thanks to Amy for her energy, skill, and patience!
Amy was so fun to work with and took such amazing photos of our then 11-month old son, that we went back for more again this year when he was almost 2. Amy did a great job scouting locations in our new neighborhood, took us on an enjoyable walk, and made our son smile and laugh the whole time. We had a super fun morning and got some amazing photos back a couple of weeks later. Hope we get to work with Amy again!
We had the pleasure of working with Amy for our families’ first photoshoot – me, my wife, and our 18-month-old Avery. Amy was a delight to work with. Incredibly professional and responsive, and she created a wonderfully relaxed and fun environment to shoot in around Park Slope. It’s not easy photographing an 18-month-old, but she knew exactly how to keep things both fun and focused. I’m a family photographer myself and from the other side of the camera, the quality of the photography and the editing was top-notch. But really it is her personality and demeanor that set the stage for us to have fun in front of the camera to come back with some wonderful memories. We will certainly be working with Amy again in the future – thank you Amy!
Amy exceeded our expectations with her thoughtful communication, easy going attitude during the shoot and gorgeous photos. She captured the essence of our 6 month old and we can’t stop drooling over all the images she sent our way.
Amy is incredibly talented and such a joy to work with. She captured some beautiful moments both in our pregnancy photo shoot and newborn shoot and really has a gift for making the most of natural light. We also never felt rushed during the newborn shoot (something that is massively important with an unpredictable two-week-old). Thank you, Amy!
Amy is amazing and her photos are incredible. She took my maternity photos as well as the newborn family photos and we could not be more pleased with the results! She made us feel very comfortable and the shoots just felt very natural and enjoyable. She is great value compared to other maternity/newborn photographers or studios out there – most only deliver you a handful of final touched up photos for a ridiculous price whereas Amy delivers you an entire gallery of beautiful photos you will cherish for life! Also, I love the natural style of her photos and I feel extremely lucky to have found her. I look forward to working with her again for my child’s future milestones!
Amy was such a pleasure to work with. From our initial coffee date to our photo session with my new baby girl she was so professional, yet made me feel as though we were long-time friends. Plus, the pictures turned out gorgeous. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience =)
We are so pleased that we trusted Amy with such a special time for our now family of 4. Not only are the photos beautiful as Amy is extremely talented, but she was a pleasure to work with– professional, yet warm and energetic. Thank you, Amy!
