“Luciana took our maternity and newborn photos and I couldn't recommend her more!!! For matnerity, I was super hesitant to take pictures. Luciana knew exactly how to coach me in poses so that the photos were super sweet and flattering! She captured beautiful shots of me, my husband, and even our dog!! The newborn shoot was out of this world! She has such a way with babies, it was amazing to watch her in action. The photos came out heartwarmingly sweet (and again, even the ones of myself - 10 days after giving birth, she's magic!). We'll cherish these photos forever and we're so happy to have them to remember such an important time in our lives. Her products are also amazing and the quality is wonderful. She has an amazing eye for detail. I am thrilled to have chosen Luciana, every time I look at our family photo with our little one, I'm so happy we chose to do the shoot with her!” - Jacqueline N.
“Simply amazing! Thanks to all the moms on Facebook, I found Luciana and oh, am I so glad that I did! Luciana is an incredibly talented photographer and an absolutely beautiful person! We had the pleasure of working with her two times in one week (it was a really great week)! My husband and I wanted family photos of our daughter before she turned one. We also couldn't resist a fantastic cake smash! The cake smash photos are just beyond adorable. If you're even slightly on the fence about doing one, don't even think about it! Just go to Luciana and you'll be forever grateful! My daughter is not the easiest to photograph, but she immediately loved Luciana and Luciana captured her spirit perfectly with her gorgeous style and artistry. Additionally, our family photos are also stunning and will be treasured for the rest of our lives. We chose to take photographs inside the studio and outside the surrounding area as well. Even though it was over 90 degrees (and felt like more 100 degrees!), we all felt (and Luciana made us look!) like movie stars when we saw the proofs. WOW. The way that Luciana captures the beautiful colors and lights of a picture is downright breathtaking. Luciana, we love your work and will be singing your praises to our friends and family! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!” - Bevin D.
“5 star experience! Luciana was so great with prompt responses throughout the process and I really felt like she went above and beyond to make sure we had the very best photos of our newborn. Her work is really an art and she has so much patience to carefully place babies into the most adorable positions (safely!) and produce breathtaking photos. Hands down a great experience! Turnaround time for photos was extremely quick as well! Will be recommending to all my friends!” - Rachel M.

Her work is splendid and she is impressive . Thank you again!” - Neha D.
“We absolutely love the photos Luciana took of our daughter for her first birthday.

We will gladly recommend her to our friends.” - Rachel R.
“Luciana did my son’s newborn photo shoot. I swear she is a baby whisperer! She was amazing with my son and took beautiful photos that my family will cherish forever. Luciana was easy to work with and included a few items into the photo shoot that I brought from home. I can not recommend her enough!” Carly S.
“5 out of 5 stars, Luciana is a gifted photographer. I first saw her work hanging on the wall of a friend’s apartment and I fell in love with the images she captured. I really wanted similar shots of our family so I found Luciana and I am grateful that I did. Our pictures came out great and more importantly we had a fun time with the experience. She was sweet with our little one and really got her to smile, laugh, and enjoy the moment. Highly recommended!” - Darren W.

“ Looking for a photographer? OK: Fine print first: Luciana Golcman Maslowski and I only met for the first time 2 years ago when she did our holiday photos so it’s not like we’ve been lifelong friends, but after today’s photoshoot I feel like she’s someone I grew up playing with. She went above and beyond the “call of duty” today in what could have been a complete disaster. Today we were doing cake smash photos for our 1 y/o and I brought our 3.5 year old as well to be in some photos. My husband had to work so it was just me with two kiddos in toe in this heat wave. If you are looking for a photographer for newborn, cakesmash and anything in between here are just a few the reasons you should go to Lu.
1. Our 3.5 y/o got car sick in the cab on the way over and threw up all over herself despite taking Dramamine and wearing car sick bracelets. It was my fault stupid fault for letting her have yogurt before we left.
2. She helped me clean her up and lent us a dress for her to wear. This was after she made sure our daughter wasn’t sick because obviously there are a lot of babes that come to her studio. As a nurse I appreciated her looking out for her other clients.
3. Our 1 year old who has a know dairy allergy had a reaction to the dairy free cake. Not sure if there was some sort of cross contamination or what happened. Thankfully I didn’t have to use the EpiPen I carry, but Lu gave us Benadryl and the reaction calmed down and started to go away.
4. This was a lot for this momma to deal with today. The shots I saw on Luciana’s camera looked great before there was even any editing. But most importantly Lu wanted to make sure all three of us were OK and even checked on us once we were home. My husband doesn’t like pics of our kiddos on social media so you’ll have to take my word on the quality of her work. Or check it for yourself on her website.
Well this exhausted momma is going to take a shower and jump into bed early tonight.” - Nicole K.
“Luciana did both our maternity and newborn photoshoots and we loved the results of both! There were many beautiful candid moments captured under beautiful backdrops and lighting, and we will most definitely treasure these pictures forever.” - Jayne H.
“We recently used Luciana for a newborn photo shoot. I love how the photos of our little girl came out. They are beautiful. We were also blown away by how how gentle Luciana was with our little girl. She was able to position her into amazing poses and calm her down when she cried. The atmosphere was clean, warm and very comfortable for all of us. I would absolutely recommend Luciana to those looking for a photo shoot and use her again. She also had the best baby girl headbands for us to use during the shoot.” - Michelle C.
“She’s is an artist with her camera!” - Karen C.
“Luciana is fantastic! She has been our photographer for both our 3 year olds birthday party, as well as a family shoot with our newborn. At the birthday party she captured ever child- creating a beautiful memory for not only me, but our friends as well. She is determined to get the perfect shots- no matter how active the children are. And for our family shoot, she was so understanding of our needs. We had a 2 week old baby & a totally unpredictable schedule. Yet she worked with us and was so understanding. The photos came out amazingly. And she was even able to squeeze in a couple newborn shots at the same time. She is generous with her time and is great at giving direction when necessary. I can not recommend her enough!!” - Laura E.
“Huge thanks to Luciana for capturing such incredible milestones and unforgettable moments over the last year. We would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone and sincerely look forward to continuing to come back to you over (and over) again as our family continues to evolve!” - Vania F.
“We first worked with Luciana when we had her photograph our eldest daughter's first birthday at her studio. We've since gone back to her several times for holiday mini-sessions, outdoor family photos, and portraits of our younger daughter. Each time, she's given us great tips to prepare ahead (thinking through coordinating outfits, color schemes, timing between the kids' naps, cake smash vendor recommendations, etc.). She's captured beautiful photos of both of my kids (as infants and toddlers) and managed to coax smiles out of them even when they were being difficult! Luciana has a great eye for light and details - our shoots at her studio have always included gorgeous, whimsical sets. Love our photos with her and will definitely book again in the years to come!” - Fay G.
“Amazing photographer AND amazing human being. Luciana is one of a kind, I am so thankful our paths crossed.” - Agathe B.

We definitely intend to use her again in the future and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a family photographer!” - Jessica M.
“Luciana is super talented and wonderful to work with! She photographed my son's first birthday party and really captured the essence of the celebration through candids and portraits. She is creative, has an amazing eye for light and scale, great with children, and very timely with post-production deliverables. She has since photographed our family holiday photos and we plan on having her photograph our son's second birthday. I highly recommend Luciana!” - Li-Pei S.
“Luciana did an amazing job with our newborn pictures. Our pictures turned out wonderfully and we could not be happier. She is extremely gifted, but also very professional.

“Luciana is simply the best! Her set design for my daughters cake smash was pure perfection and she was able to capture my daughters personality in every shot!!” - Christine M.
“Luciana did my pregnancy pictures and they look absolutely beautiful! My husband and I are very pleased. She's an amazing photographer. Creative and very professional. Try her work, you'll be happy you did! - A Luciana é uma super fotografa, muito talentosa. Fez o meu Book de grávida. Amei e recomendo o trabalho dela!” - Paula R.
“Luciana is amazing!!! She has been my family photographer since my little boy was 3 months old and I couldn't be happier with her work!!! Our first shot was super hard because my little one was fussy, but she did a fantastic session anyway. She is lovely!!! I love her work!!! She is able to capture the greatest moments and the photos quality is perfect!!! I highly recommend her!!!” - Aline N.
”Luciana is the best photographer ever! We had our Maternity Photo Shoot done in a very cold morning, actually freezing morning, and she was there 7 months pregnant, just like me... and did a great job! We are so happy with her work! Her sensitivity to capture the right moments is something else. She is also very responsive, every email or text I sent her was immediately answered! She advised me in what to wear, best time for the pics, products, everything! We couldn't be happier! We are looking forward to having our baby boy's pictures taken by her... We recommend Luciana Golcman Photography with our eyes closed!!! ♡♡♡” - Emanuela R.
”I highly recommend Luciana's work. She took newborn photos of my son when he was about 10 days old and she was wonderful, not only did she capture amazing photos of him (truly the best shots we have of him as a newborn), but she was very accommodating to an extremely tired new mom. She does beautiful work!” - Christine L.
“Luciana photographed our daughter’s newborn shoot and our family photos (including grandparents!) in Madison Square Park and we cannot recommend her enough! She’s clearly a talented photographer, but more importantly she’s flexible, easy to work with and incredibly kind. Both photo sessions posed various challenges ranging from an uncooperative baby to extreme weather, but she never faltered and the resulting photos were amazing. We plan on working with Luciana for our future family events and would recommend her to anyone looking for a family photographer.” - Judy K.
“Luciana has a gift for capturing the most beautiful moments and expressions. When she photographs parties you do not even notice that she is there and except for a few family shots none of the pictures are staged. She seamlessly blends in with the party and manages to take the most gorgeous shots. She also somehow manages to get all the kids to make eye contact with the camera and smile for her. She is simply lovely. The passion she has for her work shows in every interaction that you have with her. And of course the final work product is extraordinary. It is now a family tradition to have Luciana capture the most precious moments in our lives. I could not give her a more glowing recommendation!!” - Loura A.
“Luciana is amazing. She is easy to work with - with parents, grandparents and kids - all ages. She is a talented photographer. She shot family pictures for us in Central Park. She is funny and smart. Everyone was at ease with her and the photographs came out really nice. She is professional and courteous. She will be photographing our family again this year.” - Shikha B.
“Luciana is a very talented , creative photographer and she’s very sweet and patient as well! I love my pregnancy album . She really captured the moment and made a beautiful memory for me and my family. She also has great child psychology and my daughter felt comfortable in front of the camera. Yay 🙏🏻😁 I recommend her work 100%! Can’t wait for our next session in the future.” - Paula R.
“Highlyyyyyy recommend her! She is a amazing and does a wonderful job! Her thoughts on the backdrop are great and she really knows how to get almost 1 year old smile!!!” - Jodie P.
