My husband I and I were completely blown away by this photographer! He is a baby whisperer!!! My newborn son won’t let me put him down, so when photographer Max arrived, I was very nervous things wouldn’t work out. Instantly I could see how at ease my son was. He slept through all of the prop changes. He was quite and peaceful the entire photo shoot. Highly recommend Max!!!!!read more

Max did a fantastic job with our newborn photographs. He was very calm and patient throughout the whole photo session, and he made our newborn feel safe and at ease during the whole session - the baby did not get upset at all until the 3hr session was over :) There were quite a few different backdrops/settings to choose for the photos - all of which turned out great once we saw the finished product. We would definitely recommend Max to anyone wanting their newborn photos taken!read more

**UPDATE** I just learned that Max and Mariam no longer work together. Max had ZERO involvement in this shoot. Like I said he did an AMAZING job on my daughter's newbon photos and I would 100% hire Max again. Mariam has given me a full refund. Thank you Mariam for reaching out and offering the refund. ************* Let me start by saying I've used this company twice now. Max did my daughter's newborn photos and I had no issues, everything was perfect. So I decided to book them again to do my daughter's cake smash photos. I booked them in January 2019 for a photoshoot May 18. I let Mariam know I needed the pictures in time for my daughter's first birthday. I had the intention of printing out photos for friends and family. Mariam asked me what I wanted for background balloons and I specified the color theme and wasn't given options for much else. One week before the shoot I emailed Mariam to confirm the date and time and she emailed me back confirming. 2 days before the shoot she emailed me cancelling saying she was sick and had to reschedule. She rescehduled for the following Friday at 2 pm. I asked for a weekend appointment as I work but she said she could not so I took a half day vacation from work. At 1 pm she texted me saying she was running late from another session and to come for 2:45. Sure no problem. I leave later and while I'm on my way she texts me again saying she just finished the other shoot and to come for 3:15. I told her I was already on my way but would take a walk or something. I paid for parking and waited over an hour when she texted me to say she was cancelling because she was stuck in traffic and there was an accident. She rescheduled for Sunday (all of a sudden she had a weekend appointment). On Sunday we arrived a little early and I texted her asking if that was okay. She rudely sent me a screenshot saying we agreed on a certain time and I was early, she was with another client. I said no problem I'll wait in my car but all considered that eas poorly handled. We FINALLY have the shoot and she tells my husband and I we will get final picturs back in 7 days. She shows us some pictures of other shoots and says she will photoshop the whole background in (she had nothing there but balloons). She collected payment. 7 business days go by and I messaged Mariam asking when I could expect finals and she responds saying it's actually 7 to 10 business days. That would be the day before my daughter's party not leaving enought time to print and I ask her if she can do them sooner. Keep in mind that I booked May 18 knowing that I woukd have to wait 2 weeks for editing but she kept rescheduling. She says she will try for one day sooner but of course I get nothing. After 10 business days I message her again asking for the pictures. At this time she asks me for info to fill in her one year board and I'm sure she hasn't even started editing yet. She send me pictures that night and the editing job is just awful and clearly rushed. Filters slapped on the pictures and she DREW on polka dots on the balloons on the computer (I specified in JANUARY that I would like polka dots on the balloons). I told her this was nothing like what she showed me and she retouches agai adding pink pom poms that are floating in the air. The color theme is black and blue with now random pom poms. The 2nd version was WORSE than the first. I direct her to remove the fake polka dots and make the pompoms the correct color and they still look ordinary like someone took them at home. She kept asking what she could fix, but I'm paying for a service and expertise which she clearly doesn't have. I did not get these pictures until after her birthday party either. I saw so many wonderful cake smash photos from other people and was truly so sad that I paid for such terrible photos. I also want to add Mariam offered to do the pictures half price for the cancelling. Cake smash pictures are $230. I paid $40 deposit and she asked for $120 the day of the shoot. That is more than half price, she gave me a $70 discount for terrible pictures. She does NOT know what she is doing. She is unprofessional!! Save yourself the hassle. DO NOT RECOMMEND. Some pictures in comments of the worst ones that actually made me almost cry. I think the worst was the amount of times she tried to argue with me instead of taking responsibility.read more

We were so surprised how gentle Max was with our daughter. She didn’t fuss once because he was so good with her. The pictures are worth every penny charged. Thank you Max and Mariam!read more

After looking into a few photographers I’m so glad I found Max and Marian for the maternity and newborn photo shoot. You truly get affordable professional photos. For the newborn photo shoot Max came to our home and set up everything as if we were at his studio which was nice because it makes you feel relaxed. My baby needed to be fed during the photo shoot twice and Max would patiently wait until we were ready for more pictures. He is so good with babies! We got the photos within a few days and we were delighted with all of them. We are definitely com my back!read more

We were so lucky to see an ad on Facebook of Max and Marian photos. I'm so happy that I didn't hesitate and contacted them. They are so easy to communicate and fast on answering that made me feel more confident about my choice. The day of shooting was a great surprise. Max came to our place and my baby was crying a lot and no sleeping at all! He was patient and professional, waited him to calm down and was so kind to my baby that I knew everything would be ok at the end. Photos are so beautiful that I still can't stop looking at them.read more

I looked into quite a few photographers, and I'm so happy to have found Max and Mariam. They were very easy to communicate with via email and answered all of my questions. We did the shoot in our living room 6 days after baby was born and it was so much easier than lugging our baby to a studio, since we were so exhausted. Their package was also very flexible and all family members were allowed to join in. Max brought everything and had the patience of a saint. He waited in 30 degree temperature with the heater on for our baby to fall asleep, and kept her comfortable during the whole shoot. Photos were chosen on the spot and the edited copies were in our inbox 7 days later, exactly as promised. I would definitely recommend this awesome team.read more

We were incredibly fortunate to receive a photoshoot with Max as a gift from friends, which we excitedly took advantage of 10 days after our son was born in February. Max was incredibly patient as he worked to get our son into as many props, fabrics, hats, etc. as possible, during our time with him. His gentle, soft spoken nature made our son feel so at ease that he pretty much slept through the whole thing. Turnaround time to make photo selections and receive final versions was incredibly fast (much quicker than I would have anticipated) and the photos turned out beautifully. We were so pleased with the entire experience and would certainly recommend Maternity and Newborn Photography to anyone who wants to capture the beauty of those early days.read more

I was days searching for a newborn photographer until i came across max and mariam. I fell in love with their photos and immediatly booked a session. They were very accomodating as our little girl was still jaundice and we had to continue to push our session back. We had difficulties getting our little girl to sleep and max had a tremendous amount of patience and was very proffesional. Our pictures turned out amazing and we could not be happier with them. Max did amazing work and we would reccomend them to anyone looking for a photographer.read more

We had the pleasure of finding Max and Mariam to complete our baby's newborn shoot on March 12. Max came to our home with his full shoot set-up, and spent 4 hours only to finish with an on screen view of the full shoot for us ( to pick out that day which pictures we wanted to purchase/have edited). In exactly one week we received all of our pictures and boy were they perfect. We couldn't have asked for better service and professionalism. P.S. we also appreciate that Max got peed on by our little one and it didn't phase him lol!read more

We had an excellent experience with Max and Mariam. We had our newborn photos taken in February. While our infant was not the most cooperative, Max was extremely patient and gentle with her and was able to get some great shots. I had a few follow up questions and requests and they were responded to promptly. Maternity and Newborn Photography was also one of the most affordable options I could find, and I am very pleased with the results. The hardest part was choosing which photos we wanted. Thanks, Max and Mariam!read more

Max is one of the nicest photographers I’ve met. He made my family and I feel welcomed and at ease. He was able to get gorgeous pictures of my newborn. I am very impressed by the quality of his work and professionalism. Newborns are very unpredictable and he was very patient throughput the whole process. I didn’t feel rushed at all. I would definitely recommend Max!

Max was amazing to work with, very warm and friendly. He helped us along with poses and were very patient with us, the maternity photos came out amazing and we will definitely be booking him for our newborn photo shoot.

Alicia M.

We don’t hesitate to recommend Max for family / newborn photos. Max was incredibly patient and kind especially with our children. Newborns especially can be quite unpredictable (and messy!) and yet he remained calm throughout our shoot and provided us with as much time as we needed to settle the baby. The pictures are beautiful and we appreciate receiving digital copies of the images so we can have prints made as needed.

Lyndsay & Will

One of the best experiences I had for a newborn and family photoshoot. Max is very professional and yet very caring and patient. Also, everything we ordered including the photobooks is being delivered even earlier than our stretch dates. The entire experience was so pleasant; I would definitely go with him again. Can’t be compared with my previous photoshoot experience with my 1st. Thank you Max!

Max is incredible! We used him for both maternity and newborn. We had some challenges with both (husband with broken foot for mat shoot and a colicky newborn) but he was so sweet and patient and in the end created some fabulous photographs!
We have recommended him to many friends and I can’t wait to use them again!

Aimee, Scott and Charlotte

A job well done by the photographer, Maxim. He was very patient with my daughter, gentle and professional. I also love how it’s affordable without compromising the quality and creativity of the pictures.

Charmaine

Max and Miriam are fantastic! We used them for our maternity shoot and a newborn shoot. We live our maternity pics and have them displayed in our home. Our baby was VERY fussy and really terrible to work with but Max was patient, kind and put us all at ease!! These guys are the BEST! I could not give them a higher recommendation!! We will be using them again for sure!!!

Stephanie

Pleasantly surprised by the experience with Max. Professional, focused, calm and amazing with our daughter Jade.
We could not recommend them enough, saved hundreds compared to the competition while receiving top notch quality service. If you are looking for newborn photoshoot, look no further.

Mel and Flo

All I have to say is AMAZING!!!! So happy I came across Max’s studio for the following reasons…
1) Max was so gentle and outstanding with our baby boy!
2) Price ! Cant beat it period ! I searched. The quality of experience and quality of pics was not affected by the price at all!
3) Max wins award for most patient man EVER! He just took his time to ensure my boy was content, comfortable and WARM! The room was soooooo cozy no wonder he slept right through minus feeding time and diaper changing!
4) Max was nice enough to let us use a couple of our own personal/sentimental props (ie teddy from when I bought it for my hubby when he was hospitalized for rare breathing condition) and now those props are part of my baby boys pics
5) very professional and the whole process was quick and painless. Didn’t have to harass them and they followed through with their timelines they promise.
WILL BE COMING BACK ! And spreading the word to all my pregnant friends – I have a chunk this year!
Thank- you Max for your work and amazing photos that I will cherish forever I’ll be seeing you in the future I hope !

Sally M

Milana and Massimo

We discovered Maternityandnewborn.com via Google. My Son’s newborn photography session was done by Max, who is very talented and gets along with kinds perfect, so the pictures come out very natural it was a great experience. We spent 3-4 hour for the session, he is so much caring and use some techniques to make sure that the baby don’t cry during the session. He give enough time for baby feeding.
We’re extremely happy with the quality of the pictures, which came out. All pictures look very amazing with professional quality.
Reasonably priced as well If you’re reading this review, just don’t waste your time in looking other expensive studios, pick the phone and call Max to book the session right away!
Highly recommended…!!
