i had been following swirly for over 4 years now, I was a fan of her work and she really proved herself when I had my baby. Shirly is very professional and knows what she's doing. I was so amazed with how she handled my baby and the way she worked with her. Its not easy to work with newborns however swirly knew exactly what she was doing and I was so amazed and couldn't be happier. Last but not the least, the end work!!! was so amazing and everyone couldn't help but love it. my family and friends instantly became a fan of her work and i couldn't be more thankful.

We recently took my daughter to have pictures done for her first birthday and she was less than cooperative. Shirly was patient and kind and got a ton of amazing shots even though my daughter certainly did not make it easy. I would highly recommend Shirly and plan to use her again in the future!

We were blown away with the photos Shirly took of our son! Amazing photos! Our son is extremely fussy too so it was a miracle she was able to handle him and manage to take those pics. She was very hands on with him as soon as the session started and calmed him down right away. No easy feat lol! Her studio is lovely and located just off Prospect Park. Communication with her was quick and easy. Already recommending Shirly to friends, not that it’s needed coz they’ve already asked after seeing the photos!

Shirly is the best newborn photographer around! She was recommended to us by friends and we had an amazing experience. She provided detailed instructions to prepare for the session. She was extremely patient with our son and took whatever time necessary to make the best photos possible. We were very comfortable with her handling him. The photos turned out fantastic, and we got them very quickly.

I absolutely can not speak highly enough of our experience with Shirly!! The whole experience from start to finish was just wonderful, and most importantly the photos are beyond stunningly beautiful!! Shirly’s studio is warm and lovely. She has so many cute props for the shoot and chooses colors based on your individual preferences. She was so patient, kind, and gentle with our daughter and even provided us with a space to relax and decompress while she was working her magic!! I would give more than five stars if I could and would recommend Shirly to everyone! 💜

My husband and I really enjoyed our experience with Shirly. Her studio is so warm and cozy, feels very homey, and is full of adorable props for her shoots. There's also a comfy place for parents to sit while she works her magic. She has everything new parents would need just in case something is forgotten at home, like extra diapers and wipes. Shirly was super patient with our newborn, even when she wouldn't fall asleep for some of the shots! We are so pleased with the end result and will treasure our newborn photos forever!

Shirly was wonderful to work with for our newborn photos. She was beyond patient with our 2 year old as well. We really love the work she did and are so grateful she was able to capture these priceless photos for our growing family. We can’t wait to work with her again! She is a true pleasure and does exceptional work.

We are so happy with our newborn photos of our baby girl and Shirly was so sweet and calm to work with. I was exhausted and wasn't sure if I would have the energy to do this 1 week postpartum but she basically told me to rest on the sofa in the room and she did everything (and handles a newborn like a total pro!). Thank you Shirly!!! The pictures are so beautiful we coudn't be happier :)

Shirly is truly an amazing photographer! Very patient with my 3 year old and amazing with my newborn. The quality of her pictures are phenomenal and I was at complete ease knowing that my baby was in great hands. Thank you for taking the time to work with us, Shirly! Highly, highly recommended!

Shirly is the best newborn photographer in the area. She photographed our first son 2 years ago and we were so happy with the photos. When we found out we were having another baby, it was an easy decision to return to Shirly for newborn photos of our second son. Shirly is very talented, professional, and pleasant. Her studio is lovely and she has many adorable props, outfits, and accessories for the photos. We love the photos from both sessions and we will treasure them for a lifetime. She is also great with babies and we were very comfortable with her handling our newborn babies. She was very gentle and patient with our babies the entire time. Thank you Shirly for capturing these precious times!

Shirly is an amazing photographer. She was able to capture so many beautiful photos of our newborn son that we will treasure forever. How she was able to keep him asleep and posed during the photoshoot is beyond me - I wish I knew her secret! Highly recommend!

This is the first time I am working with Shirley and I am very very happy with the results. I have run into Shirley's webpage through yelp, instantly loved her work and did not hesitate to choose her for my newborn photos... I had filled up a questionnaire with my preferences prior to the session and when I got to the studio she had everything organized accordingly, the room temperature and setup was also in a way to make my baby very comfortable. She was very caring and patient with my baby, positioning her slowing to find the perfect shoot, spent a good amount of time with us. Shirley has demonstrated to be creative, detailed oriented, professional and very patience, just what I was looking for! 100% recommended, would love to work with her again.

Shirly is an AMAZING photographer! We used her services for our daughter's newborn pictures. The pictures were beautiful, they were exactly what I envisioned. Shirly is friendly & easy to work with. She was really gentle & sweet to our daughter during her shoot. I HIGHLY recommend her services & talent. We will be using her again for our daughter's 1 year birthday pics.

We are THRILLED and SO glad we had our son's newborn photos taken by Shirly. She is a consummate professional -- everything was smooth, fast and friendly from start to finish, from booking the shoot, discussing the "feel" we wanted, to the beautifully run photo shoot itself and receiving the proofs. We could not be happier. And oh, the photos. They are absolutely stunning!!! We ordered extras in addition to the package we'd chosen, because there were so many we absolutely loved. We already look forward to having Shirly capture our son's one year photos and more. Being first time parents, booking a photoshoot BEFORE the arrival of our baby felt a big commitment to an unknown situation... not to mention getting a 9 day old newborn to a shoot as new parents seemed like a big adventure in and of itself! But we are so glad and grateful we had Shirly take our son's photos. She was incredible with him (and with us!) and she captured his early days in this world in beautiful, beautiful images. If you want a newborn photographer, look no further!!!

We could not be happier with Shirly and the photos of our newborn daughter! I received agift certificate for a newborn photo shoot as a shower gift. Shirly was great about following up to schedule the shoot and provided specific instructions to help the shoot go as smoothly as possible. Shirly was incredibly patient and meticulous in getting the best photos. She also had everything needed to keep our baby and us comfortable during the shoot. The photos are amazing and something we will treasure.

Shirly is fantastic, kind and patient! We had gone to Shirly for our son's 1st birthday cake smash. We were very happy with the quality and turn around time of the photos. The photos came out so beautiful and we will definitely be cherishing these photos forever.

I am hesitant to put out such a glowing review because I fear Shirly will become so popular. Shirly is an amazing photographer. She is extraordinarily professional and responded to my inquiry immediately. The session went smoothly and quickly. Shirly made my daughter laugh and put her at ease. She was thoroughly prepared and explained what she wanted to do. She was very open to my suggestions. I received proofs within one business day. After I made my selection, I received my finished shots within one day! The quality and variety of pictures are bar none. Frankly, her pricing is amazing value when you see the final photographs. Shirly is highly talented. I have every intention of using her talents for my daughter's photos in the future.
