By choosing Luciene Pestana Photography and investing in our time and talent, you're and trusting us to capture all the tiny details of your biggest journey yet.

Whether you are purchasing an album full of your favorite images or creating a collage of wall art for the bare wall in your house, the photographs taken in our studio will remain timeless. Your images are something that can be passed down from generation to generation. Looking at your images 20 years from now will bring back that exact moment in time, or the smell of your newborn, and the sound of your baby’s giggles.
Our clients are looking for the most BEAUTIFUL images of their newborn baby or family. They also love the QUALITY of the carefully selected variety of printed art pieces we offer, and they are excited and proud to hang them in their homes.

The first few days after your little one arrives are an incredibly special time for your family. Between celebrating your new addition, adjusting to life with a new family member, and soaking in his or her kissable features...it can feel like you’re in a dreamy haze. In everything we do during your newborn shoot, your peace of mind and baby’s safety is our first priority- from our clean studio and setups to careful handling, posing, and spotting we’ve thought of everything to make sure your experience is comfortable and joyful.
As your body creates a miracle, maternity portraits are a wonderful way to capture and celebrate this season. Carrying a child is truly one of the most beautiful things in the world, and that oh-so-limited timeframe should be documented before it’s gone forever. The ideal time for a maternity session is between 28-32 weeks to ensure that we don’t schedule too close to your due date, but that you are far enough along to have an amazingly full belly to show off!
Personality and Milestones Sessions are a perfect way to document your baby’s growth both during the first year of life and throughout their childhood! Sessions are done at the studio or outdoors if weather permits and can be completely customized based on how you would like your child’s unique personality to be captured.
"Luciene did my maternity pictures and our newborn pictures as well. Prior to my maternity shoot, she sat down with us and discussed our preferences and really got to know us. She's very patient and knows how to keep older kids engaged so that she is able to capture the images she wants (I have a very energetic 4 year old). With my newborn, she was gentle and took her time with the baby. We are so pleased with the images from the maternity shoot and newborn pictures. We have received so many compliments on them."
"I've known Luciene now for 4 years. I was lucky to have her photograph both my maternity and newborn pictures for my girls and she is absolutely amazing both as a person and a photographer. She will go above and beyond to meet your vision and she is extremely patient with newborns. I highly recommend her as a photographer."
"Luciene photographed my newborn daughter when she was only 10 days old. The session was an amazing experience for us. Lu was gentle, patient, and professional. Her studio is comfortable, her props are beautiful, and she took the time to get just the shots just right. The images she captured are absolutely priceless. They came out so beautiful that we went back for our holiday pictures. And again, I was blown away by her talent. I would recommend her to anyone".
"We love Luciene! We met her at newborn fair at the Middlesex and were quickly sold! She accommodated our newborn photos very quickly and has taken photos for our 6 month and Xmas celebrations since. She is passionate about her work and makes sure you are beyond pleased with her work. You can tell she loves what she does because the end result captures such a beautiful moment! We will definitely use Luciene for our future photo needs!!"
