commercial shoots // my new home location by jamie atlas

I endured a few major changes in location last year - after my lifetime in NYC, my husband and I moved with our kiddos from Brooklyn to the suburbs (eek!) and after 10 years shooting in the same loft studio in Jersey City, Marisa and I packed up our props and said goodbye to our headquarters. Change is not my forte, and I was dreading the move on both fronts...but I have to say, I think I'm blossoming in the 'burbs! One perk to 'burb life is that living in a house is super lovely. When I pad down the stairs in my slippers for coffee in the morning, I feel like I've rented a quaint airbnb. And the house kills two birds with one stone, because it's also a perfect built-in location for the commercial photoshoots we do each week. We still miss our prop shelves and our Jersey City lunch orders (you forever have our hearts, Little Sandwich Shop!), but it's been a nice change to shoot in a home instead of building sets every week. Here are a few favorite images we've gotten from some recent commercial lifestyle shoots we've done in my new home:

family session // may day newborn by jamie atlas

I've been so lucky to get a bunch of family sessions lately - I really love a chance to peek into a day of family life and find something unique and beautiful amidst the every day moments in someone's home. That's especially true of newborn sessions. Stepping into the home of a newborn instantly takes me back to those delicious, delirious days with my own newborn babies...only without so many hormonal tears or frantic Google searches on my part. It's really sweet and special to watch people literally becoming a family right before your eyes. Here are a few of my favorites from a family I had the pleasure of meeting most recently.
