Meet the Photographer

I'm Andrea Hartstein, a certified professional photographer & I️ help families celebrate the births and lives of their children!

Every baby has a story. 

And every baby deserves to be celebrated. 

At Hartstein Photography, your baby's story is beautifully told in a way that when you look back on the beginning of your child's life, not only will you remember what happened, but you will remember how it felt when you first met your baby.

Relax and enjoy your pictures for generations

Time-stopping.  Story-telling.

Your baby photography is your one chance to look back at this monumental moment, the birth of a new baby, and tell your story.

You have got so much to think about before the baby comes .


There's the nursery decor, the diaper stockpile, feeding supplies, strollers, cribs, choosing who will deliver the baby, where you will deliver the baby & of course, one of the most important decisions could possibly be who your belly • birth • baby photographer is.


They are responsible for increasing

what you remember and how you remember it.

I believe that you have a story to tell with the birth of your new baby.


It's a story of anticipation, of love & support between partners, of a growing family, of the start of the life of a new person.  Your pictures should genuinely capture you and your loved ones, with photographs that are modern, yet timeless.

Everyone should be able to look back at when their kids were little and remember what it was like.  I'm here to help you do it.
