Holiday Photos at Big Apple Portraits (review)

20 Nov
This year my girls had the opportunity to have their portraits done at Big Apple Portraits on the Upper West Side (143 72nd). This wasn’t our first time at Big Apple, we went a few years back around Easter for a photo session with chicks when it was known as Portrait Bug.
Both times we’ve had portraits done, the staff has been incredibly friendly and helpful in having my girls warm up to the idea of having a picture taken. During our photo session with the chicks, someone noticed my youngest was scared of the chicks and not wanting to be involved. He quickly played hide and seek behind a curtain, making funny faces when he popped out.  Both of my girls started giggling making for a natural look.

In our most recent Holiday session, Kim provided the most adorable faux Hot Chocolate in addition to winter hats and scarfs. My youngest, again nervous for the shoot, was made to feel comfortable as Kim talked with her and let her choose the props she wanted to wear.
Big Apple Portraits was fabulous for our holiday photos and past family photos.  It is a studio setting so you will get a simple background but the pictures turned out adorable.  Framing your favorite photo(s) for loved ones are great gifts for the Holiday season.

When you have your 30 minute session, there is no obligation to buy, however, it’s hard to resist the great shots they get.  There are different packages available- whether you want discounts are provided towards products at and other photo sites. In addition to Holiday photos, Big Apple Portraits provides many other services like a First Birthday Cupcake Smash session. Find out more at
