If you’re just hearing about Abby Cope Photography for the first time - I am a New York City based photographer focusing on Maternity, Newborn, Babies, Children, Teens, Family and any and every combination of those categories. In NYC I travel throughout the boroughs and surrounding areas photographing families in their homes, parks and everywhere in between.
This blog features the same children’s portraiture that I’m known for, with sneak peaks from photo shoots and all of the latest studio information. I try to update it often - though it's hard when things are busy!
In addition to being a New York City Photographer, I've also been known to do photo shoots in Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Florida, Kentucky, Minnesota, California…and anywhere else people are inclined to bring me to be a part of a special day, event or moment in their family’s history.
An exciting new addition to my business this year are Studio Sessions. While I still love to do location photography, I’m also happy to offer something new. The studio is conveniently located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn just two blocks from the L/G train. It’s great for a variety of reasons, and a wonderful rainy day backup plan. Plus, now I can do cake smash photos without you having to worry about your home getting sticky!
We welcomed a little girl to our family last July. Somewhere between a full shoot schedule and acclimating to life as a mom of two I slipped off the blogosphere completely. Rather than play catchup with all the shoots from this year and last, I’ve decided to work on a full website update. It’s time! So be on the lookout in the next month or so as I clear out old photos and make way for new. In the meanwhile, I’ll share a few photos of my sweet little ones, and some snippets from recent shoots.
Little Leo was oh so strong and sleepy. I had a blast snuggling him and taking his newborn photos.
And a few maternity photos to show off some beautiful baby bumps. I can’t wait to meet these little ones!
Leela turns 1, Baby Sam enters the world and Samuel joins big brothers Nash and Ben. So many special moments!
Kate, Gabe, Maja and Noa. From the Upper East side to the Upper West. Central Park to Williamsburg, there’s just not a bad place in this city for photos when you’re photographing adorable kiddos.
Chiara’s mom, Jenny, is a fine artist and muralist. She actually specializes in painting murals in nurseries/children’s bedrooms. She also happens to LOVE the color green, so it was no surprise to me when I showed up for the shoot that nearly everything she had on hand for our photo sessions was green green green! We took the photos at their home in Westchester and little Chiara was a delight. The wings were also Jenny’s touch. This is probably the most Anne Gedde’s-esque shoot I’ve done.

I’m sure I’ve said it a million times, but I love Maternity photo sessions. We took these photos at the family’s home on the Upper East Side before walking over to a small park by the East River. Although they’d probably tell you otherwise, they were both so natural in front of the camera. Just a few weeks until I get to go back and meet their little girl!
Maia was a delightful and very strong little girl. For being just one week old she could hold her head up and look around for what almost seemed to be indefinite period of time. She also has the most adorable dimple. She’s going to be trouble when she’s bigger - those huge smiles with great big dimples are completely irresistible.
