Photographing a Second Pregnancy with Style – Studio Maternity Session

I‘m so excited to share this gorgeous maternity session in the studio, today! The day I captured this pretty collection of images for Alice was so fun, and right away I couldn’t wait to see the photos out of my camera. First of all, Alice was the perfect subject. Second, there were just so many subtle, amazing details included in this session. And third, I just love everything about this client and this session! Get ready – this is maternity session goals. So, if you have a maternity session coming up, get ready to Pin away … It’s a good one!

Let’s start things off with this ethereal setup. For this initial set of photos, we went with light, airy, textured sheers and neutrals. Alice’s minimal yet statement-making jewelry added just-right sparkly touches. So incredibly exquisite!

Onto our stunning and AMAZING dark setup! As I said, it was a glorious day in the studio but then we went even more extra! Starting with a black backdrop and a sheer black number – so fabulous. Are you as in love with these portraits as I am? But wait … there’s more …

With pops of metallics, Alice’s jewelry pieces were statement-makers. I’m grateful for her including these pieces in her wardrobe!

Alice wanted to be sure we photographed some “cool mom” poses, too, and this was such a fun way to celebrate her second pregnancy. Smiles and confidence – I’m all in!

How stinking fantastic is Alice?! I am OBSESSED with this session! It’s so perfect for this celebration of new life, and I love how Alice’s confidence shines through!

Gap-inspired family portrait session in white shirts and blue jeans

Sweet Baby Milestone + Family Studio Session for Baby Tomas

It’s been a minute since I got to work with a mama who wanted to style a session that included outfit changes. Luckily, I was able to accommodate Gabriela’s request, get her cute family in front of the camera, and I’m SO happy with how it turned out! I’m also thrilled that, after her internet research and website portfolio reviews, Gabriela asked me to make this pretty come to life. Just wait until you see how Gabriela and Dino’s little sweethearts hammed it up in the studio!

Because Tomas has a possible egg allergy, Gabriela and I worked together to come up with an alternative setting for his first birthday portraits. These beautifully styled, oversized typeface letters, and some very minimal white and clear balloons, did the trick perfectly! I’d love to see more of my families go this route for birthdays.

0431 Looking Up Photography0744 Looking Up Photography0684 Looking Up Photography

These father-son and mother-son portraits have to be some of my recent favorites! What an amazing series this would be to display on a wall in the family home. Gabriela told me she intends to display these photos in many places in their home, including the master bedroom, living room, and in the kids’ bedrooms! It’s still such an awesome feeling, knowing how many families have my work adorning their walls, memories made and treasured.

0756 Looking Up Photography0851 Looking Up Photography0873 Looking Up Photography0803 Looking Up Photography

While I adore photographing at beautiful outdoor locations in Connecticut, I love when families schedule portrait sessions inside the studio. When I look back through albums, I’m always struck by how classic images taken in the studio are. There aren’t usually many of these photos, which makes them all the more special!

0906 Looking Up Photography1132 Looking Up Photography1222 Looking Up Photography

You see … those visits to parks and the beach, etc. – they’re all great. But playing as a family – these are the moments that remind us where the heart is. I love when I can photography my clients in the studio. With that in mind, consider moving your family milestone session into the studio!

A Sweet Studio Session for Newborn Baby Lucie!

A new month means an adorable studio newborn session! This cuteness is brought to you by my clients Sue and Brian. Sue approached me with a beautiful concept, and I was all in. I couldn’t wait to arrange all the details. It ended up being a darling neutral floral, and simply styled session with the coolest family ever. I can’t get enough of this fun family newborn session. Now, get ready, because baby season is here and you’re going to need all of this inspiration.

It wouldn’t be a Looking Up Photography session without a cute little newborn headband! Along with all of the adorable neutral details and textures. I’m a sucker for the little things and also loved the hues Sue requested for this session.

Onto the next pretty set up! Of course we used the best newborn accessories from my collection. I am in love with this entire arrangement of images in white – aren’t they adorable? I did my thing photographing an amazingly squishy sleepy Lucie. I love how pretty she looked in her headband with that giant white flower! Amazing imagery galore!

A Beautiful Cottage Style Cake Smash Session at the Studio for Jordyn!

What’s better than a day in the studio with a birthday baby?! I’ll tell you what – almost nothing! Milestone sessions are a favorite pastime of mine (if I’m allowed to call my work a pastime). You’ve gotta love capturing sessions that involve cake, right?! It’s always important to enjoy the little things, no matter where you are in life or your business. I created this special scene with the help of Jordyn’s mama, Nicole, and my girl Sweet Lisa’s Exquisite Cakes, who is always fun to collaborate with. Check out all the pretty below!

I’m so in love with Jordyn’s linen birthday crown! We did a rosette swirl smash cake. Look at all that gorgeous frosting. The cake wouldn’t have been complete without that pretty gold topper! Sweet Lisa’s Exquisite Cakes really went to town and made the most gorgeous pink ombre swirl smash cake. All of this was photographed in my Greenwich, Connecticut photography studio, which was festively adorned with all those balloons. Springy perfection!

An Amazing and Coastal Cool Family Newborn Session at the Studio for Baby Teddy

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of planning and capturing this stupendous family newborn session for a family celebrating the birth of their newest family member, Teddy! We had so much fun celebrating this cutie and the rest of the family as well! Teddy’s mom Lori had a beautiful, coastal inspired vision that we brought to life with understated colors and textures. I’m so excited to FINALLY share this one! Waiting 2 months is hard, my friends!

0359 Looking Up Photography c

Teddy had this slightly serious face all queued up for me. I love when I can capture the little details of an awake newborn for my clients!

0317 Looking Up Photography0313 Looking Up Photography

The session was held at my local studio here in Greenwich. It is such a perfect place for a family newborn session! I have all of my newborn props and textiles at my disposal to make it extra pretty. If I may say so, my blanket collection is to die for!

0290 Looking Up Photography0243 Looking Up Photography

The studio floor was adorned with the softest flokati that perfectly complements the buttery skin of a new baby. It was spring fever with all of the dusty blues, and creamy hues in each image! New life should be a party after all, so we went all out!

A Beautiful and Sunny Family and Maternity Session at the Beach!

What’s better than an evening at the beach with your family?! I’ll tell you what – add the celebration of a growing new life! Sessions at Greenwich Beach might just be considered a favorite pastime of mine. You just have to appreciate the beautiful backdrop and light! No matter where you are in your life, it’s always important to find time to document your family, and what better time than when your family will be growing. I created this special session with the help of Jessica, Ronaldo, and their daughter Natalia, whose newborn session I photographed in 2019. Check out all of the pretty below!

The grandparents were included in our session and I’m so in love with these photos! We did some relaxed, classic posing with the entirety of this gorgeous family. A mix of neutrals and that vibrant cornflower blue really completed the session gallery! All of this took place during the fabulous golden hour at Tod’s Point. Perfection!

A Beautiful Session at Tod’s Point with Fall Foliage Flair!

Last fall I had the chance to photograph the prettiest family. Katie and Alex’s family reminds me of the joy of having little ones on the move, and how fortunate we are to have such a beautiful ‘backyard’ to play in, here in Greenwich, Connecticut. While I was editing this session, I played some of my favorite autumn-inspired music and it was heavenly! Today I’m sharing a little bit of this perfect fall family session, with a little fall foliage flair. Scroll down to see all the sweet details, including a local Greenwich magazine feature!

Well, I’d love to begin by sharing this delightful magazine cover of Greenwich Neighbors magazine, published this month by Best Version Media. Katie used my photos for their feature and it turned out so gorgeous. You can also visit Katie’s blog, Witten Kitchen, here. It’s the little things, for me.

When I first saw this image of father and son from the back of my camera, I loved the expressions it held. It has just enough softness and movement in it with that amazing natural backdrop, and baby Rory’s extended hand. This session was inspired by family, the season, and the natural beauty of the place we call home. Allowing children to be children is a key element of any outdoor family session (or any session, for that matter). Kids add so much life and emotional color to an image, often bringing out the very best and most organic expressions in their parents as well. I love how Alex, Rory, and I capitalized on that, here, allowing Katie’s vision for her family photos to be brought to life almost effortlessly.

1300 Looking Up Photography1448 Looking Up Photography

For the final photo, I always like to get a snapshot of parents without their fabulous children. It can be easy to forget that kids exist because of parents – and not the other way around – and it’s good for both adults and children to see their love for each other shine on its own!

one year milestone portrait with a baby bathtub and balloons

A Traditional First Birthday Milestone Session for Baby Luca

This sweet milestone session might just be one of my favorites I’ve shared so far in 2022! I fell in love with the ocean-inspired color scheme right away. The soft pastel tones of cornflower blue and sea foam green are so good together. Plus, you add in the traditional wardrobe choices and you have a dream milestone session! I’ve been dying to share this one and I’m so excited to finally do so. These shoots are always so much fun to put together, and I really work with the most amazing parents and families to bring them to fruition. I love each and every one of my client families to pieces!

Of course, mom Kristina knocked it out of the park with all of the adorable details! I love how she went beyond my expectations with her selections for this studio milestone session. And Luca was adorable, providing me with endless cuteness to capture. I am obsessed with it all, styled so simply. Are you loving these colors like I am?

More cute smiles! Did I mention that Kristina works for Melissa & Doug, maker of the train Luca is pulling? I kind of want to gift one of these trains to EVERYONE.

To wrap up this studio session with one year-old Luca, this darling setup. I have to admit that it makes my heart go pitter-patter! I feel so inspired by our home state of Connecticut with this color scheme. From Luca’s little outfits, to the classic texture of my studio chair, to those fun balloons in the background. Starting with that, and Luca the superstar, it didn’t take much to make this cuteness come to life.

A Gorgeous, Pastel Cake Smash Session at the Looking Up Photography Studio

We are looking forward to spring, and what better way to do that than with a gorgeous studio cake smash session! Before COVID, I had the pleasure of doing many beautiful cake smash sessions, so I was excited to photograph this fun shoot with baby Reagan. All the balloons, and Reagan’s sweet smiles, gave me such a sense of normalcy as I photographed this session. One of my favorite vendors provided the cake, and you can find her information linked below. I couldn’t have been more honored that Kristen chose me to capture this milestone!

Let’s start off with a gorgeous frock – always a good place to start if you ask me! Kristen is responsible for picking out this beauty. I love both the classic design and the modern and punchy watercolors. We also got Reagan in a crisp white headband, which perfectly accented her cute little features!

Take a closer look at how expressive she is.

We captured so many beautiful photos – it was heaven! The light in my studio never disappoints and helps me bring the pretty. The two different outfits for Reagan were the sweetest ensembles that any baby girl would look incredible in. The balloon color combinations were fun and unique, especially when paired with gold accents. I’m always excited when I get to deck out the studio in such springy colors. I love it all! Such a lovely way to spend a day in the studio. What a dream!

A Magical Beach Session for the Sweetest 2 Year Olds

I’m in love with the beach. If you’re a beach family, there is no better location for your family portraits than Greenwich Beach! And what’s better than getting together with one of your favorite client families for a birthday celebration on the beach (times two)?! The twins turned two, and mom wanted a family beach session with her special people, complete with sandy toes and plenty of splashing! I had the best time putting together this gallery, and it sure looks like they enjoyed themselves, too. The beach brings out the best in little kids, and this family knows how to have fun! Of course, the beach also provides a stunning backdrop for your family pictures.
As usual, I have plenty of photos for you to see!

Some things never change, and two year-olds splashing in the water are as cute as ever! Of course I encouraged them to splash as much and as big as they wanted to!
