Product feature | Our New Deep Matte Linen Album

I want to share a secret with you.  It's our brand new DEEP MATTE album, and every family that has seen it in person at our gallery reveal appointments has fallen in love with the look and feel of the pages in this heirloom album.

Our other albums have a lustre coating on the pages, but this one is toned down with a deep, rich matte finish.  It looks incredible, and it even feels smooth like butter beneath your fingers.  It looks particularly amazing with our newborn sessions, and I personally love it for family session albums as well!

Here is a peek into Barratt Raymond's lifestyle session album.  I love how the rich tones on the pages complement the beautiful and neutral nursery decor for this family's session!

Just like with all of our fine art albums, there are 15 linen cover options to choose from so you'll be able to find the perfect shade to suit your style.  A few of the most classic ones are Tundra (this dark gray shown here), Sand (a beachy beige), and Tusk (a creamy white). 

Lately a few families have been having fun and using a few of our more colorful linens like Summer Breeze (a festive blue), Orchid (the softest lilac), and Peach (just the right shade of a soft peachy blush pink).  Fog is also a new favorite for many families, and the light gray is woven with a silver thread that adds just a hint of sparkle to the cover!

Whether it's a first birthday,  a Fresh 48, a family session, or a newborn session, there is nothing sweeter than having all of your favorite memories woven across the pages of a beautiful album that you can hold in your hands, turning the pages and reliving a chapter of your family's story.

With this particular session, one of my favorite memories from this family was when they were telling me that their baby girl is obsessed with babies.  She loves all things baby.  They have an album from her newborn session with me, and she likes to start every day flipping through the pages of the book and looking at all of the baby pictures.   Of course, she doesn't realize that she's looking at Baby Blake on the pages of the album, but it's her favorite book and one that I'm sure she's going to have many memories of looking through as she gets older.

That's what our keepsakes are all about.  Creating memories with your family and enjoying them every single day.

The storybook albums are petite, 8x8 albums with a gorgeous linen cover.  The pages are printed on press paper, and they are so beautiful in person!  Each book is custom designed to hold your favorite images from your portrait session.

Product feature - Welcome Home Baby Blair | A Lifestyle Session in Our Linen Storybook Album

Now that we have a little one of our own, our keepsake albums are even more special to me.  I truly love being able to hold all of our favorite memories in my hands, flipping through the pages of a beautifully bound book and feeling the linen cover beneath my fingers as I trace the debossed words on the cover.

These are such beautiful keepsakes, and our albums stole my heart long ago.  Today we're showcasing this beautiful lifestyle newborn session in our Sand linen storybook album.

One of my favorite behind-the-scenes tasks as a business owner is album design.  I truly enjoy weaving together all of your favorite photos across the pages of a book to tell your story, trying different combinations and layouts to get it just right while showcasing your beautiful family.

These albums are perfect for our lifestyle sessions because the sessions are true STORYTELLING sessions.  You might not hang every portrait on the wall, and that's okay!  But the moments are ones that you're not going to want to forget, and it's so special to be able to preserve them and relive them through the pages of your family's album.

Plus we can deboss your baby's name & birthdate on the cover, or your family name & the year for a family session!  The debossing options are silver, gold, and rose gold -- the album in this blog post is done in rose gold, which is one of my favorite combinations with the sand linen.

Product Feature | Our New Heirloom Wooden Wall Art

Our Wooden Keepsake Boxes have been such a hit with our clients that I wanted to bring a complementary new product to our product line.  Everyone always exclaims how much they love the wooden products, so I searched for months to find the perfect new piece to add to our collection.

Today we're introducing the new Heirloom Wooden Wall Art.  These gorgeous new pieces of signature artwork have hand-sanded corners that show the grain of the wood, and linen fine art prints mounted directly onto the wooden block.  They hang easily on your wall with two predrilled keyholes on the back, and they have a clean and minimalist look that goes well in traditional, modern, and rustic decor.  

Your favorite portraits can be printed in rectangles, squares, and even circles.  Cluster a few together on the wall for a display, stand one up on an easel, or display a large one all on its own as a focal point on your wall.

Product Feature | Our Custom Birth Announcements are included with every newborn session

You've waited 9+ months for your little one to arrive, and now it's time to celebrate!  So many new moms & dads are excited to announce their baby's arrival to the world and start sharing adorable photos of their little bundle of joy.

Nicole Starr Photography | Saratoga Springs Newborn Photographer | Boston Newborn Photographer | Saratoga Springs Lifestyle Newborn Photographer | Boston Lifestyle Newborn Photographer


You could do that with a blurry, poorly lit photo on Facebook and a quick caption.

Or, imagine your loved ones opening up a thick linen envelope and sliding out a beautiful birth announcement that prominently features your baby's name, birthdate, birth stats, and a collection of your favorite professional portraits on thick, luxe paper. 

This card will make it to their fridge and stay there for months, putting a smile on their face every day.  Grandma will probably frame hers, and you'll tuck one away into your baby book and save another in a box with your little one's hospital bracelet and coming home outfit.

While technology is amazing and it lets us share our lives immediately and with so many people at once, there is something truly special about sending "snail mail" and a beautifully postmarked envelope to announce your baby's arrival.  I've even had parents order custom stamps from the post office to match their birth announcements, truly taking this post-baby task to a whole new, beautiful level!

Nicole Starr Photography | Saratoga Springs Newborn Photographer | Boston Newborn Photographer | Saratoga Springs Lifestyle Newborn Photographer | Boston Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

Every single newborn session comes with a set of 25 custom birth announcements, including the envelopes with your address printed on the back.  That takes one more thing off of your to do list, because my job is all about making your life easier when you are home with a newborn baby.

Nicole Starr Photography | Saratoga Springs Newborn Photographer | Boston Newborn Photographer | Saratoga Springs Lifestyle Newborn Photographer | Boston Lifestyle Newborn Photographer
Nicole Starr Photography | Saratoga Springs Newborn Photographer | Boston Newborn Photographer | Saratoga Springs Lifestyle Newborn Photographer | Boston Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

During your gallery reveal appointment we will choose your images for the announcements and review what you want written on them.  Most families include the baby's name, birthdate, birth stats, and a signature.  Some families leave room to write a little note or thank you, and others fill the space with all of their favorite portraits.

I design the announcements and send you a proof of the design, and once you approve the design it's time to send them to print!  It's really that easy!

Nicole Starr Photography | Saratoga Springs Newborn Photographer | Boston Newborn Photographer | Saratoga Springs Lifestyle Newborn Photographer | Boston Lifestyle Newborn Photographer
Nicole Starr Photography | Saratoga Springs Newborn Photographer | Boston Newborn Photographer | Saratoga Springs Lifestyle Newborn Photographer | Boston Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

Then you'll receive your beautifully packaged announcements, and all you have to do is add addresses and a stamp before sharing with friends and family. 

Be prepared for your phone to be buzzing with lots of congratulatory messages from everyone exclaiming about how beautiful your little one is and how much they love these birth announcements -- because they won't soon be forgotten!

I truly love creating beautiful heirloom products for the families that I work with.  I want you to see & enjoy your images every single day, and I love helping families realize that printed memories are so much more powerful than little JPEGs lost on a hard drive somewhere.
