As the owner and photographer of Rivka Singer Photography, I take great pride not only in my photography but in the relationships I’ve built with my clients over the years. A lot of thought and care goes into the planning of each session in an effort to make your session with me an enjoyable experience – I invest every bit of my energy and inspiration in your session. Custom maternity, newborn and family photography are unique and unlike any other type of photography out there. It requires a tremendous amount of trust in the photographer who will be working with your little ones, especially with newborns. Many of my clients have been with me for years – I’ve had the privilege of photographing little ones from their first days as newborns to their first days of kindergarten. These relationships are special and ones that brings me great joy.
The creative process only starts with the your photography session. I spend extensive time after the session editing the images that best represent your session. I enhance the colors, remove any imperfections and strive to bring out the essence of the images. Once the editing is complete, I send them off to their forever home, for you to enjoy and look back on for a lifetime. There are no hidden costs, each package details exactly what you can expect to receive! With every session package you receive a certain number of high-resolution digital images to keep, print and have forever – they are yours to cherish. Have a look at my pricing and packages here. I offer a variety of session packages that are certain to suit the session you have in mind. I’m very flexible and always happy to create custom packages if you have something specific in mind.
Enjoy the beauty of my images here on the site and I look forward to seeing you outdoors or in the studio!
With love, Rivka xx
“We’ve had the pleasure of working with Rivka twice now. She photographed us in September for maternity pictures with our family of three and again in December when we welcomed a new member to our family for newborn pictures. From the initial contact with Rivka, she was extremely receptive to all my questions and put my mind at ease from what clothes to wear, the best locations for pictures, our two year old daughter and the newborn session. Rivka was amazing with our two year old daughter, taking such great care to get the most natural and purest smile that we’ve never been able to capture in our own pictures. She’s personable, professional, and a perfectionist. Every detail is thought out so methodically. She works masterfully with angles and lighting to capture moments in the most elegant ways possible. For our growing family, she was able to capture two special moments in our life and I’m truly grateful for the pictures.”
“Since receiving my photos from Rivka I’ve shared them with family and friends and the response has been amazing. The photos are creatively
“In her personality I found her to be genuinely patient, loving, caring, and gentle with our son. In her work I found her to be talented, artistic and professional. She had everything prepared for our arrival, with multiple backdrops and props already set up and ready to go. She had a variety of lovely materials selected, from delicately knitted blankets and scarves, to sweet bonnets, to snuggly stuffed animals. Rivka spent a great deal of time making sure the bonnets fit perfectly, that the bow and strings laid gently across our son’s chest, and that his hands wrapped around his stuffed animals in a cute and cuddly manner. She never lost patience when he started to become a little fussy towards the end of the session, and simply waited for him to relax again before continuing her work. Rivka’s home studio is sunny, lovely and clean, with a couch for parents to relax, a changing table ready for quick diapering, and dozens of adorable props to work with. I had my images emailed to me not long after our session, and they are absolutely lovely. I could not be more pleased with the results from our photography session with Rivka, and highly recommend her to anyone looking to capture photos of their newborn in a cute and unique way.”
We have been fortunate to work with Rivka many times over the years as our family has grown and we can’t imagine a more talented, patient and gentle photographer. Her images are artwork! She captures the child’s personality and emotions with ease and she has an eye for what works. She truly listens to our preferences and is very flexible. We always look forward to shoots with Rivka because she is such a pleasure to work with!
“Rivka is not only a professional, sweet, and fun photographer but she’s also down to earth, and extremely talented! She has been doing this for years and it shows. The way she was with our boy only a few days old speaks volumes of her experience and talent. Capturing these moments for us was something we’ll always cherish and the way Rivka does it is timeless! The bonnets and wraps are signature and no one can come close to her unique ability to connect the child with the prop! We’ll forever be grateful we had the chance to work with her and will enjoy these photos forever.”
“Rivka is a professional and does amazing work. She has captured so many great memories for us. I never have any doubts that we will have plenty of gorgeous photos to hang in our home. She did the first photo shoot with our twins when they were 5 weeks old. She came to our apartment with all of her own props (which were adorable, by the way) and had lots of ideas for posing them. I didn’t have to think about a thing, which was much appreciated. She was extremely gentle and patient with the babies, and we took plenty of breaks for them to eat. She has also done family shoots with us as our babies have become toddlers. Again, her patience is key! She never makes you feel rushed if one toddler is not cooperating during the shoot.
“Rivka is just a really good person, which makes working with her that much better!”
“I appreciate your professional expertise and loved your passion, patience and kindness.”
“Working with Rivka was awesome! She made me feel comfortable and beautiful. She was receptive to what I wanted but had great ideas of her own. Our pictures are gorgeous and are such wonderful memories to have of my pregnancy! We highly recommend Rivka and can’t wait for her to take our newborn pictures too!”
“Rivka took the time to discuss what I wanted prior to the photo session and was very receptive to a sample of pictures that inspired me so she could understand the type of photos I was after. During our session together (which was so much fun it actually extended past the time we both anticipated), Rivka was simply lovely to work with. She gracefully guided me through a process that can be quite awkward when you are not used to posing for the camera and carefully took care of the little details like my hair and my clothes with every single shot, being exceedingly patient throughout. I was surprised that it was such a comfortable experience despite us being in very public spaces. As for the results: they were exactly what I wished for and couldn’t possibly hope to actually get. My husband and I will always cherish these pictures capturing a very special time in our lives in a natural and beautiful way.”
“We had a great experience working with Rivka. She made us feel really comfortable and natural in front of the camera. We are extremely satisfied with our pictures and they turned out exactly as we wanted. Her studio was beautiful, private and easy to get to. We will definitely recommend her to all our friends and family.”
“We were so happy with the quality of Rivka’s photos, and with the photo shoot itself. Rivka’s warm and calm demeanor helped all of us to feel at ease right away. She instantly earned our daughter’s trust, and captured her at play in various spots in Central Park. The photos of our baby were also spectacular – natural and carefree. They really showed off his personality. Rivka’s love for her work shows through in every shot. We enjoyed the entire experience, and we would recommend Rivka without hesitation!”
“Wow! We are honored to receive such beautiful pictures, thank you!”
“Rivka’s photos of our children are absolutely stunning. The clarity of the shots is profound and the children are very naturally posed, displaying their personalities. Every time I look at the pictures, I feel drawn to them, feeling as if I am right there. the dinkin family As the Director of a preschool I have a responsibility to make sure the childrens’ yearly photos capture something of the spirit of childhood. The individual has to shine through in each photo. Rivka related to the children with patience and good humor. She worked with me to find just the right spot, the right light, and the right setting. She even came to informal events and shot pictures of the children in action, exploring art materials, interacting with animals, and photographing the staff. She is a member of our school team and we are grateful to have her!”
“We came with our 2.5 week old son to Rivka so she could create some newborn photo memories. Our baby was a little fussy, but Rivka was so gentle with him that she actually succeeded in calming him down better than us! The whole experience was great. She took adorable, priceless pictures that will last forever.”
“Thank you so much for the opportunity to do a pregnancy photo shoot. I felt very comfortable, at ease, and even like a movie star at times! I’m so happy that we have the photos to remember this special time!”
“Rivka was able to take the most amazing photos even though our baby was not the easiest model! The photos really capture his expressions and the close-up views focus on details, such as his eyes. We have shared the photos with our friends and family who are also in awe of how beautiful they are. the landres family We absolutely love our photos! I had been hesitant about taking them this far along in my pregnancy, but Rivka made me feel comfortable and beautiful, and I am so glad we have these gorgeous photos to celebrate and remember this special time. Thanks Rivka!!”
“A truly gifted photographer, Rivka knows exactly when to press that button resulting in pictures that are both amazing and unique. She is very friendly and engaged with us while taking the pictures. But Rivka not only takes just beautiful portraits, she has the talent to convey a feeling in each picture. We can’t stop looking at the portraits she did of our daughter and remembering the great time we spent with her. Highly recommended!”
“Thank you for the gorgeous pictures!”
“Rivka’s perfectionism and warm personality provided a great photo shoot experience. I was a little insecure at first, but with Rivka I quickly felt comfortable and pretty. She is very patient & has a great artistic eye, which helps ensure you get the pictures you are looking for. We had a wonderful experience and will definitely come back for a newborn photo shoot.”
“Working with Rivka for our newborn’s pictures was amazing! She was so patient with Jack and took the time to put him to sleep and carefully pose him. We felt 100% comfortable with her working with our baby. The pictures are beautiful and will be cherished. Thank you, Rivka!”
“We had such a wonderful experience! I felt uninhibited and natural with Rivka and it shows in the pictures, they really exemplify my connection with my growing belly. We were so happy we had the chance to have Rivka take my maternity photos, we had a lot of fun! She was patient, understanding and the photos really show-off the beauty of pregnancy – thank you!”
“We had a great experience with Rivka! Our kids loved her and reacted very well with her presence in the room. The pictures were absolutely amazing – we love each one of them. It was a hassle-free session with a lifetime of memories. “
