    Comment:  We are new to the board and first time parents. We want to share our experience with Brooklyn Photography and Anita Maffei with anyone looking for a baby photographer. Anita was an absolute pleasure to work with. She asked us for the style we would like and even commented on photos we already had up in our home, ensuring that she provided a similar look and feel. She was incredibly gentle with our daughter (who is only 9 days old) and paid very careful attention to every detail. Her website depicts her incredible work, but getting to have her in our home, chat with her and see her in action is something that her great photos can't describe. When we received the final photos, we had a hard time deciding which ones to order, as so many of them truly captured our new family in our element. We can't wait to put these new photos up around our home, and to another time that we can call on Anita.

    Subject:  Shoutout for local photographer, Anita Maffei
    Comment:  If anyone is looking for a fantastic photographer - for product shots, family pictures, headshots, etc - I highly recommend Anita Maffei. We worked together on my last handbag collection and she shot a series of product and lifestyle shots in different Brooklyn neighborhoods. She has the magic touch when it comes to getting the perfect lighting and the right angles. She's also very easy to work with! If anyone wants to see the pictures from that shoot, please contact me.Check out her sites - the first one is more baby and family-centric, and the second is a new one she launched for corporate headshots:http://brooklynphotography.com/ anitamaffeiphotography.com

    Comment:  I just wanted to second this recommendation for Anita Maffei! Anita took family photos of us last year for Father's Day - a terrific idea for the holiday. Anita was really creative and we got some very sweet photos. She is not the type to take a zillion pictures, but rather careful and calm in order (I think) to let the natural spirit of the family come through. She's a professional and has lots of good suggestions and ideas for shots that will work, but was also willing to freestyle with some ideas we had. We highly recommend Anita!

    Comment:  I recently had some photographs taken of my family by Anita Maffei. Full disclosure, I have known Anita from the parenting scene for a few years now. But my photographs - and experience with her as a photographer - were excellent and I thought I would share.Anita was very flexible. I think you have to be with babies, but she understood the general nature of babies, and was open to working at the right time, and worked quicklyShe did a good job juggling keeping a baby/kid engaged while taking the photographs. This is a lot of work and she got great expressions out of the kids.The moments she captured were beautiful. I'm a photographer, too (of spaces, not people) and I know that getting the right moment with the right expression can be difficult.She had lots of props and lots of posing ideas. Lots of creativity with the lighting and made sure we got the shots we wanted.She turned the photographs, and the resulting prints, around quickly and with professionalism. They were beautifully retouched.in all, she was professional, quick, very skilled, and fun to work with. And her rate is comparable pretty affordable.I am really glad I had her take photos. I keep thinking I'm going to get to them myself and it never happens - meanwhile, the kids are getting older!

    Comment:  My ten-week-old daughter, my mother-in-law, and I had a great time with Anita when she came to my apartment to photograph the baby—and the resulting photos are just beautiful. Anita was extremely patient and generous with her time and talent. She was wonderful with the baby and somehow was able to keep her in a good mood through almost the entire sitting. The pictures capture my favorite expressions and are adorable without being "too cute." I know we'll treasure them always. I called Anita based on her glowing PSP reviews, and I wasn't disappointed.

    Comment:  wanted to share my great experience with Anita Maffei photography. Anita took beautiful pictures of my 5-weeks old daughter. She was extremely easy to reach, responsive and accommodating of our baby's ever changing moods. She spent two days trying to get the perfect shots of her, including coming back a couple of times to catch my daughter in good mood and willing to get photographed. The resulting shots were beautiful, all my family wanted them too! I cannot recommend Anita highly enough. Her website is www.brooklynphotography.comOne tip - if you are looking to take pictures of your newborn, do it as soon as possible (like when they are 2 weeks old) when they are still sleeping a lot... Learned that one from experience since my daughter refused to fall asleep for those cute sleeping newborn pictures!

    Comment:  Just wanted to give a shout-out to a wonderful photographer, Anita Maffei (http://www.brooklynphotography.com). We found Anita from the PSP board and decided to give her a try. We were looking for someone to photograph my 17 month old daughter and make a family portrait. We figured being outdoors would make the experience easier than having a photo session in a studio. We met Anita in Prospect Park and had a wonderful experience. She was very patient with our daughter and the fact that we had three separate outfits for her. As you can imagine, our daughter had no desire to sit around and pose for pictures but Anita managed to keep her attention and get some fabulous shots. I can't recommend her highly enough. We will be visiting with her on an annual basis and for any large events that we host.August 2012

    Comment:  I want to pass along a great photographer recommendation. I recently worked with Anita Maffei and she is truly wonderful. She photographed my 11 month old and 2 year old - juggling both with such ease! She will come to your home or location of your preference. Reasonable rates and the turn over time was very quick. I received such lovely, natural, candid photos of my little ones that I absolutely treasure. Check her out at www.brooklynphotography.comJune 2012

    Comment:  I'm organizing our family photos which reminded me I've been meaning to recommend far and wide the professional photographer Anita Maffei. She took photos of our family in Prospect Park in the fall and, though our two young boys had no interest in sitting still, she managed to capture some wonderful photos of them and of our whole family. She has a great way with kids, and just let us be us which really comes across in the images. In our 6 years as parents, these are the only photos my husband and I have with our kids in which not only are we all looking at the camera, we all also look calm and happy.If you have any interest in having photos taken of your kids or your whole family, I'd highly recommend getting in touch with Anita. Her website is http://www.brooklynphotography.com and her e-mail is anitamaffei@gmail.com.

    Comment:  Anita Maffei is a fantastic photographer and a local Brooklyn mom. Her work is beautiful, inspired, and never corny, which I find hard to achieve in nowadays professional photography. She does family and individual portraits, and pretty much everything else too.Check out her work at: http://www.brooklynphotography.com/(April 2012)
