Alexa Drew Photography is a Manhattan based photographer specializing in newborns and families.  Alexa is known for her gentle approach and ability to capture both those subtle details of your baby's lips and skin, as well as that indescribable energy pulsating throughout a family when a new baby is welcomed home.

Alexa Drew's sessions occur in her client's homes between 3 and 10 days after birth so Mom, Dad, Baby, and Siblings all feel comfortable and at ease throughout the entirety of the shoot.  At the end of her sessions, most clients will say "Wow, I didn't expect that to actually be fun" and big brothers or sisters will ask why the play date is over so soon.  Alexa makes sure to always create a relaxed and enjoyable environment during her sessions to ensure the most real and emotional moments can be captured.
