Merritt – A Studio Session at Three Weeks

I was so excited to shoot this last-minute newborn session in Greenwich, Connecticut at the Looking Up Photography studio. This family contacted me a couple of weeks after baby was born. They came to me because Merritt is their third child and they realized that they hadn’t commissioned newborn portraits for their other two children. They wanted to be sure Merritt had imagery to celebrate his birth, his natural sweetness as a newborn, and also his unique appearance. They contacted me and we captured Merritt’s newborn imagery all over the course of a week. Although I always recommend reaching out to me as soon as possible, when you’re expecting to welcome a new baby into your home, I love accommodating these sessions when I am able to. With any luck, we get perfect, sleepy poses with access to all of my props, swaddles, newborn outfits, and accessories … and … we can usually capture baby when they’re a little more alert. Eyes-open shots sometimes become some of my favorites, and they’re always beautiful!

Perfect Merritt. Alert and so very interested in what’s happening around him.

We got to capture a variety of setups. Here is sweet Merritt modeling one of my favorite caps. Just look at those tiny details. I also love how it contrasts with the chunky knit of the blanket he’s snoozing on.

I love it when I’m able to get so much variety out of my setups. Many times, I focus on 2-3 prop displays and am able to produce a full and diverse gallery from those looks. I have been known to photograph from dozens of angles simply because I am especially inspired by the props or because my little subjects are so captivating. 

Thank you, baby Merritt, for a fabulous session. You were a dream!
