"In her personality I found Rivka to be genuinely patient, loving, caring, and gentle with our newborn.
In her work I found her to be talented, artistic and professional."
"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."
"I just received my maternity photoshoot pictures from Rivka and am blown away with how amazing my pictures are! My photos look straight out of a magazine. Rivka is so professional, sweet, kind and talented- I ended up scheduling my newborn shoot with her as well and can’t wait for her to do them. Thank you so much Rivka for being so amazing!"
"Since receiving my photos from Rivka I've shared them with family and friends and the response has been amazing. The photos are creatively unique compared to other newborn photographers."
"In her personality I found her to be genuinely patient, loving, caring, and gentle with our newborn. 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 the best photographer we have ever worked with! From the moment I spoke to her I knew how amazing she would be and how great it would be to work with her. She truly loves what she does and it really shows in her images. She’s a natural with the babies and can calm your newborn instantly, we felt so comfortable when she had our daughter. She made my husband and I so comfortable during our maternity pictures as well, even though we needed to warm up a bit to the camera. Rivka listens to what you’d like to do and works with you to make the most beautiful images to really capture these precious moments that you can cherish forever. She’s professional, knowledgeable, always oraganized, prepared and incredibly responsive! If you’re looking for a maternity/newborn/family photographer you HAVE to call Rivka, you will have an incredible experience!"
"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."
"Rivka took the most amazing pictures of our sweet baby girl! As a first time momma I was worried about how my little one would be during our session. What if she cries? What if she’s fussy? Rivka made me feel at ease immediately upon arrival, and was able to anticipate what my daughter needed from the onset. Rivka is incredibly kind and patient which makes her more than just a great photographer. Rivka has so many set ups/props to choose from- it was hard to pick just a few! We were able to use our photos for our birth announcement, baptism invitation, Christmas card, grandparent gifts and, of course, frames around the house. My little girl is 6 months old now and has grown so much! Looking back at her newborn shots melts my heart. Thank you Rivka for capturing such a special time in our life. You’re the best!"
"Rivka was awesome! She was very professional and communicative, asking all the right questions to ensure we had a wonderful session. When we arrived she had everything laid out, and was very receptive to our thoughts and suggestions. She was the perfect balance of sensitive and understanding. My husband is an art director and helped choose Rivka after seeing several other photographers. Her lighting was great and the studio was welcoming. After posting some of her pictures on social media all my friends were raving about how good they were and how she was able to capture such precious moments. We really loved working with Rivka, and we can’t wait to come back for our 6 month and 1 year photos. We will treasure them always."
"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 is beyond talented! I am grateful to have the opportunity to have her capture memories of my daughter that I will forever cherish. I could not imagine anyone else to photograph these milestones and her skills go beyond the camera. She is so warm and hands on with my the baby, I wish I could just take her home with me. The final pictures were worth the wait, my parents and family were so impressed by how artistic and beautiful each image was that Rivka's attention to detail really shows. Rivka has the ability to connect with people and babies and it also translates in her pictures. I continue to recommend her to everyone because she is truly a gem."
"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."
"I could not recommend Rivka enough!! From the initial conversation to book our newborn photo session to receiving our photos, Rivka was amazing. You can definitely see the care she puts into all of her clients and products. When we arrived at our session, Rivka invited us in like we were family and the session was such a beautiful experience. She has a gorgeous studio with natural light, hundreds or props that include backdrops, headbands, wraps and accessories. During the session, Rivka handled our baby girl with such care and grace. She is the "baby whisperer!" and kept our daughter asleep, happy and content throughout the entire session. After the session, that same day she sent a sneak peek photo and we had another one the next day! Rivka kept in contact with us and we had our photo gallery quickly after with many beautiful edited photos. All the photos took our breath away! They are truly works of art and are such amazing memories of our little girl."
"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!"
"Our experience with Rivka was absolutely amazing. She is so warm and immediately made us feel at ease- and helped us forget about the sleep deprivation temporarily! The initial correspondence alone made us so excited to meet with her, and she is very thorough in trying to understand the kind of images we wanted to achieve with our baby boy. Once we got to her studio, which is so nice and cozy, she showed us all of the setups that she had prepared for our session. The setups were completely on point for what we had talked about via email. I think the aspect of the sessions with her that were most surprising and incredibly appreciated is that she is a baby whisperer. Our baby was pudding in her hands! We received the photos very quickly, and they were expertly edited and absolutely gorgeous. On a final note- the tricks Rivka taught us to soothe babies and put them to sleep is worth the newborn session alone. I encourage all new parents to book a session with her!"
"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. "
