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!

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.

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.

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!

A Keepsake Book for Baby Nora - Showcasing our 10x10 Linen Fine Art Album

Our fine art albums are my ALL TIME FAVORITE KEEPSAKE that we can create from our portrait sessions.  Newborn sessions, birthday sessions, family sessions, and maternity sessions -- these are such beautiful ways to display your images and to enjoy them for many, many years to come.

Personally, my home has a stack of these albums that I've designed and printed for our own personal photographs, and every year the  pile grows a little taller.  I print the same albums for my own family that I do for yours because I love them so much. 

Enjoy a peek at sweet little Nora's newborn session in our linen album!  The thick pages and sparkly linen cover were the perfect combination for this baby girl.

Nicole Starr Photography, fine art album from a studio newborn session

Today I'm excited to share another fine art album from one of our recent newborn sessions.  Declan James came to our Saratoga Springs studio and we did a classic neutral session with a few nautical elements incorporated into his portraits.  This sweet little boy loved being swaddled, and we captured so many gorgeous images of him with his proud parents. 

These albums tell such a beautiful story, and they are truly a special way to celebrate your baby's arrival.  I love how we weave all of his portraits together in an album that they will pass down to him one day when he's older!

A Fine Art Album for Newborn Quinn Madlina | Saratoga Springs NY Newborn Photographer

Imagine curling up on the couch with your little one, pulling out their favorite book, and telling them the story of when they came into your family. 

Imagine their tiny little fingers turning the pages and pointing out "mama," "dada", and "baby", hovering over a sleeping newborn photo of your tiny little baby all wrapped up and cozy.  

Imagine passing this album down to them 30 years from now when they have children of their own, showing them just how small and how loved they were, and giving them a glimpse into your life as a new parent as they are about to embark on their own journey into parenthood.

That's why we create our Fine Art Albums.  That's why they are my FAVORITE heirloom product for families to enjoy from our sessions.  That's why I have a growing collection of them in my own home -- they are gorgeous keepsakes that will quickly become your most treasured posessions, telling your family's beautiful story through images.

Nicole Starr Photography | Saratoga Springs Newborn Photographer | Boston Newborn Photographer | Upstate NY Newborn Photographer | Newborn Photographer
Nicole Starr Photography | Saratoga Springs Newborn Photographer | Boston Newborn Photographer | Upstate NY Newborn Photographer | Newborn Photographer

The very first time I spoke on the phone with Quinn's mother, she told me right away, "We're album people.  We're definitely going to want to create an album after her newborn session."  They have albums from all of their family milestones, filling their shelves with memories.  So of course we created the most beautiful album of all to celebrate their baby girl's arrival.

The pages are printed on photo paper and are truly breathtaking -- you have to see them in person, and the quality will blow you away! 

I also give my clients durable and kid-friendly products that will fit their lifestyle.  Don't worry about keeping it in a box to keep it perfect.  The lustre coating on the pages protects against tiny fingerprints, and if your baby drools on it you can just wipe it off with a cloth without worrying about damage.  This heirloom will hold up over the years and it will stay looking as beautiful as ever as your child grows.

Nicole Starr Photography | Saratoga Springs Newborn Photographer | Boston Newborn Photographer | Upstate NY Newborn Photographer | Newborn Photographer

My favorite thing about our albums is that we weave together all of your session images to tell a story, YOUR STORY.  Just look at the excitement on these new parents' faces!  That's what you want to remember years from now as your baby grows up and doesn't fit so perfectly curled up in your hands.

Studio Newborn Session in our Fine Art Album: Boston Newborn Photographer

Every family has a story, and every story is a reason to celebrate.  

I was so honored to be invited to capture Blake Vivian's first days with her family.  They are the absolute sweetest, and I loved our studio newborn session together at the Attleboro studio.  

My most favorite keepsake from their session is this album.  I can just picture Blake at age 2, sitting with her daddy on the couch and pointing out "mama", "dada", and "baby Blake".  I imagine her at age 6, curled up on the couch with her mom and asking her to tell her "just one more time" about the day she came home from the hospital with her parents, and what she was like as a baby.  I like to imagine her 30 years from now, looking through the album to find similarities between herself as a newborn and her own little baby in her arms.

This is why I treasure my job and the moments with these families.  I feel so lucky to be invited into their lives to capture these moments and create heirlooms for them to enjoy throughout their lifetimes.

Enjoy a little peek into a few of my favorite pages of Blake's fine art album -- the colors from her session make my heart do a little happy dance every time I look at them all together!

A Cake Smash Session in our Fine Art Album

Have I mentioned before how much I LOVE our beautiful fine art albums?  They are absolutely my favorite product to create from our sessions.  We fill the pages of your album with so many gorgeous memories, all woven together to tell your family's beautiful story in a keepsake that you'll pass down to your children one day.  

This fun cake smash album went home with Miles' family this weekend, and I just know that they're going to love reliving their son's first birthday through the pages of their album.  Take a peek at their album below!

Their family photos are fun & playful, and their baby boy went to town on his chocolate chip cookies.  I have never seen a baby so excited about his cookies before, and I love that we went non-traditional by bringing in some cookies for his first birthday session!  While he wasn't the biggest fan of his Cookie Monster cake smash, we ended the session with lots of smiles in our vintage bathtub filled with soap bubbles that were perfect for splashing!

The Fine Art Album: Baby Jack's In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Session

Our Fine Art Albums are my absolute FAVORITE heirloom product that we offer to families during our gallery reveal appointments.  They are simply stunning, and they weave together all of your favorite images from your portrait session.  I love that they are a keepsake that will preserve your family's memories for many, many years.  

The albums are breathtaking in person, and I have had countless families gasp when they finally hold their books in their hands for the first time, tearing up as they turn the pages.  I like to believe that this is because they know they are holding their most cherished family heirloom.  

It's a book that their children will grown up turning the pages of and pointing out all the little details of their family's story.

It's a keepsake that they will pass down to their children in 25 or 30 years when they have little ones of their own.  

That's why I am so excited to share the album from Jack's newborn session with you today.  I joined his family in their home for a relaxed lifestyle newborn session, and we cozied up in the nursery, master bedroom, and living room for some sweet little moments together.  

During every lifestyle newborn session, I take 5 minutes and photograph all of the little details that you so carefully planned in your baby's nursery -- the crib, the mobile, the artwork on the walls, the perfectly styled bookshelves, the little gifts from friends & family.  You spent 9+ months planning for your baby, and so much love goes into those preparations.  

It is so important to capture the tiny details of your baby's first room, because those will be the items that surround your baby and shape their childhood.  As you'll see in the pages below, the antique rocking horse will be loved for years, and Jack will grow up wearing his Red Sox cap while eating his favorite foods off of his hand-painted plate.  He will read the board books hundreds of times, and his parents will stub their toes on his wooden train a time or two while walking through the nursery in the dark.  ;o)

I absolutely love that this family chose an album with their collection.  These storybooks are the perfect way to weave together all of those little details and tell your story.  Enjoy a sneak peek into this adorable family's life, and leave a comment below to tell me which was your favorite spread in their album!
