The New York Times Features Our Go-To Baby Shower Gift!

Me Ra Koh

Last week, I received a surprise request for an interview with The New York Times!  This is one of those moments when you pinch yourself! It’s the Holy Grail moment for authors. The editor called and wanted to hear all about my go-to baby shower gift for women!

We spent almost an hour talking about my book Your Baby in Pictures, photo tips for working with newborns and my passion for empowering moms diving into photography. 

I’m still pinching myself as I type this next line…you can see my featured interview, Taking Baby Photos You’ll Drool Over, in The New York Times this Thursday!

The first paragraph of the articles reads…

Babies don’t take direction very well (if they did we should start by getting them to shush on airplanes), but Me Ra Koh has made a specialty of coaxing warm, memorable photos from infants,  newborns and children. She has had her work showcased on Oprah, written how-to books such as β€œYour Baby in Pictures,” and teaches women’s workshops.

The Go-To Baby Shower Gift

Have you got your copy of Your Baby in Pictures

So many women have told me this is their “go-to baby shower gift”! They buy ten copies at a time and keep them in stock for the next baby shower. I LOVE IT! Thank you so much!

Oprah’s Nate Berkus Show has featured it, now The New York Times…we’re doing okay!
