Shelly, L. – NYC – Westchester, NY – Newborn Photography Client Reviews Yelp Review – 10/1/2015

We have used Roy for all three of our children and I highly recommend him! He has photographed my entire family, from one newborn to siblings, grandparents and dogs!
His beautiful photos, prompt responses, and quick order turnaround are top notch, but how he runs his photo sessions is especially impressive.
He clearly has experience with all age kids and is prepared for anything. He has SO much patience with newborns (older kids too) and works hard to get the perfect shot.
We have enjoyed working with Roy and will definitely use him again!


EBM – NYC – Newborn, Children, Family Portraits Reviews online Review – 10/28/2015

Roy is THE BEST—a professional, kind, and talented photographer who
is an absolute pleasure to work with. We first hired Roy in January
2012 for a newborn portrait session. We had never done anything like a
“photo shoot” before, and had no idea what to expect. Roy
immediately put us (and our baby) at ease. He’s got a great artistic
eye and we had so much fun posing our little one in the most
imaginative ways. The results were incredible. We simply couldn’t
believe he had taken such beautiful pictures. Looking back, we were so
focused on adjusting to new parenthood that there is no way we would
have been able to get such great shots ourselves. Roy captured every
little detail.

The following year, when our second daughter was born, it was a
no-brainer to invite him back. We’ve now made it a fall tradition to
do a yearly outdoor shoot with Roy, and it’s been such a treat to
watch the girls grow through his lovely photos. Flexible and
adaptable, Roy is able to visualize the most remarkable backdrops on
the fly, creating photos that are often works of art in their own

Children light up differently when someone else is behind the lens,
especially someone like Roy who is so gentle, patient, and easygoing,
and knows how to bring out the best in his subjects. Roy has perfectly
captured our children’s personalities over and over again—we are
so grateful. We truly treasure his photos and cannot recommend his
services highly enough.

Kerry B – Newborn Photographer client – Reviews Yelp Review – 5/17/2013
Roy is the best photographer out there! I had a newborn session on May 10 with my 8-day-old and 2 1/2 year-old.  
He was so gentle and soothing to my newborn and inclusive and friendly with my toddler, resulting in amazing photographs that will become artwork in my home.  
Roy’s passion for his work shines from his heart and you just know by his smile and enthusiasm when he caught something priceless.

 I am so happy I chose Roy to capture the best first moments in my new baby girl’s life. Within minutes he was my toddler’s friend (which is very hard to do) and before he left, she asked him to come back the next day for more pictures.

I will definitely be using him again in the near future and recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.  He took over 200 photos and each one was amazing.  Thanks Roy for sharing your talent and passion with the world!

Vanessa J. – Couple Portraits Client. ManhattanReviewsYelp Review – 8/27/2013
We did couples photos with Roy and I am so grateful that we chose him, The photos are stunning!! And the reason we look so great is because Roy is an amazing photographer who captured some really candid moments between my husband and I. Roy was fantastic with the places he took us to, all downtown – East Village – where we live. The photos look like they belong in a magazine!

Roy was professional, funny and great at making us both feel COMPLETELY relaxed while taking the photos (so important..) My husband was initially dreading the idea and after he said, “That was kind of fun!” We are planning on asking Roy to do another photo session in the fall..I have already recommended 3 friends (1 for family photos and 2 for couples photos) because they were so stunned when I showed them JUST A FEW of the pictures Roy took.

If you are in the market for photos and want to capture the way you look at each other, or how happy you are, or how you feel about each other, I highly recommend Roy. I haven’t stopped looking at the photos since he gave them to us 3 months ago!! We are so happy with the pictures we already have another shoot planned for the fall.AMAZING TALENT. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. WITHOUT RESERVATION.


Since 2006, I have been traveling on location to clients’ homes to document very special times in their lives. My style is mostly documentary. Letting my subjects be themselves results in fun, unique and true lifestyle portraits. Many of my sessions take place at the client’s home, which is a great advantage for sessions with newborns and babies. When possible, I like to shoot outdoors around NYC.
