#1 Upstate New York newborn photographer

Photos that you'll cherish forever

Luxury Newborn + baby photographer

Serving Glens Falls, Queensbury, Lake George, Saratoga And the Surrounding Areas

Your baby will change SO much in those first few weeks, and having pictures during that time helps you document a precious time – not just in your own life, but also your little one’s.

It’s hard to realize in the moment how fast time flies by. Whether it’s a couple weeks, a handful of months, or even a few years… you will inevitably look back and wonder where the time has gone.

That’s why we love newborn photography.

We are able to capture those precious, fleeting moments and give our clients pictures that will always have a special place in their hearts. 

"Had a newborn photoshoot with Laura and had an AMAZING experience.

She made us feel welcome from the moment we got there, and she was so patient with our little one as she got fussy. Couldn’t be happier with our experience!”

What's included in a newborn photo session?

Our goal is to make sure you & your baby love your session and that you get photos back that you’re proud to show off to family and friends. Every session is unique, but we always strive to give a consistent experience, style, and quality of images. Newborn photo sessions include the following:

  • Planning a session specifically for you

    We'll send you a questionnaire to fill out, so we know how to prepare for your session. Each session is unique, and we want your photos to reflect your priorities, style, etc.

  • Our entire studio reserved for your photo session

    Our studio is reserved for half of the day for each newborn session. Most baby sessions take 90-120 minutes, but we don't want a time limit to keep us from capturing precious photos of your baby.

  • Access to our props & client closet

    We have a collection of baby clothes, swaddling, toys, headbands, etc. that we can take advantage of during your session.

  • Thorough editing & retouching to make every image stunning

    All of our photos go through the same detailed culling, editing, and retouching process to make sure every single one is stunning.

Testimonials From Clients


Had a newborn photoshoot with Laura and had an amazing experience. She made us feel welcome from the moment we got there, and she was so patient with our little one as she got fussy. Laura was able to capture the most beautiful pictures and even allowed us time to feed in between our photoshoot to keep the little one happy. Couldn’t be happier with our experience and will probably book another session with them in the future! Well worth it!”

“Truly the most talented photographers out there. When we found out we were pregnant, we couldn’t think of anyone better than the Pinckards to capture the most important pictures of our lives! I don’t know about you, but I was not feeling the most confident at 8 months pregnant…but Laura made me feel so beautiful & now I have pictures to look back on a cherish (at a time where originally I was disappointed in how I looked). And when our baby arrived, Laura captured the sweetest pictures we will ever have. She was so gentle & loving as she posed the baby & made me feel so confident we made the right decision.

We had a newborn session with Laura and Dan, and it was the best. The Pinckards work with excellence and have such a personal way about them. It’s so easy to feel comfortable with them. On top of having a great in-person experience, their photography skills and creativity are just unreal, so naturally our photos we received were stunning. Highly recommend!”

Frequently Asked Questions

About Newborn Sessions

  • When should I schedule my newborn / baby session?

    We recommend booking as soon as possible, because we only accept 7 due dates per month! That allows us to be flexible and get you in ASAP when your baby decides to make their entrance.

  • How soon after birth should I have my newborn session?

    The sweet spot for newborn photos is between 3-10 days after birth. This is because baby is generally the most flexible and sleepy during this time, which allows for all those adorable poses! We can absolutely take photos after 14 days - just know that your baby may be a little more stretched out and wiggly.

  • What kind of safety precautions do you take for baby photos?

    Your baby’s safety is without a doubt our #1 priority. We are extremely cautious to wash our hands & sanitize the studio between each client to ensure you and your baby are in the safest environment possible. Additionally, if you prefer, we are more than happy to wear face masks during your session. We just ask that you let us know ahead of time so that we can be prepared.

  • How do I book without knowing exactly when my session will take place?

    Great question! As you know, sometimes your baby has their own agenda regarding when they will make their grand entrance into the world. We only accept 7 newborn sessions per month so we'll have flexibility to get you in as soon as your little one arrives. You can reserve one of those 7 spots in advance.

  • Do you provide props and outfits for baby photos?

    Yes! We have a variety of props, outfit changes, and backdrops available for your baby session. If you have anything specific in mind, we can create a plan that fits your vision during our initial Planning Session.

  • What am I responsible for bringing to our photo session?

    While we have plenty of outfits and props on hand, we just ask that you bring the basics! Usually this includes milk, pacifier, diapers, and wipes.

  • What is the best time of day for baby photos?

    We strongly recommend scheduling your session for the morning or mid morning. The most ideal time will also depend on your baby’s sleep schedule, as we’ll want to start photos as soon after their morning nap as possible.

  • Can siblings + other family members be involved in the photos?

    We do offer family sessions where we can involve more people than just your baby. Our three baby photo options are baby only, baby + parents, and baby + family.

  • Where will the baby session take place? Do you travel?

    We can book an in-home session, but most baby photo sessions take place in our studio in Queensbury, NY. Pricing for in-home sessions depends on the distance we’ll need to travel. You can call us at (518)338-3129 if you have any questions!

  • What should we wear for the photos?

    We recommend any family members that will be involved in photos to stick to neutral colors or black and avoid busy patterns. This way your baby can have the spotlight in your photos.

  • Are you able to edit out skin blemishes, flaky skin, etc.?

    Definitely! We do retouching on every single image that you order, and we're more than happy to spend additional time on some images if there is severe acne, bruises, or other blemishes.

  • How long do baby photo sessions take?

    Generally we plan for roughly 120 minutes for a newborn shoot, but we don't set a strict time limit! Sometimes your baby is running the show and we’re on their timeline. You may have to take several breaks throughout the session for feedings, changing, burping, etc. We don’t want you or your baby to feel rushed throughout this process.
