Alexander’s Studio Newborn Session

As a newborn photographer, my goal is to have a baby who sleeps through our session. I prep my clients. I give them information. Even if parents do everything to a T, every now and then I’ll photograph a baby who has a bit of a hard time settling in the studio. This is especially true for those clients who occasionally contact me after the baby is born, instead of several weeks in advance. Thankfully, I have plenty of tools and tricks I use to help baby settle as best I can. Every once in awhile, there are those babies that don’t want to sleep, but we still get amazing imagery no matter what!

Alexander was already a week old when his mom, Charlotte, contacted me. Charlotte and David are Irish! They moved stateside about a decade ago and Charlotte told me that newborn sessions aren’t very common in Ireland. Their family still live in Ireland and Charlotte discovered she really wanted to capture this time of the 3 of them, not only for themselves, but to share with their long distance family. I was able to get this family in the studio quickly so I agreed to do a studio newborn session. I can usually accommodate newborn sessions as long as I have room in my schedule.

Alexander was still very sleepy and our photos are of him sleeping. Actually, I’m almost certain he was asleep pretty much the whole time. My goal is always to keep my newborn clients happy, whether they’re awake or asleep!

We created some absolutely adorable images with Alexander. His drowsy, dreamy demeanor made my job that much easier, too! 

I loved working with this precious family! They were referrals from another client, and Charlotte also did her research on WestportMoms.com. I just love hearing that past clients recommend me as someone who’s understanding of new moms and who can make first-timers feel comfortable! But honestly, Charlotte, David, and Alexander all had such happy, go-with-the-flow attitudes. Oh! And I need to include big brother Mylo, the cockapoo. Mylo didn’t get flustered at all when dad picked him up for a photo with the whole family. Everyone rolled with the punches and it made for an amazingly delightful final gallery.

Lily – A Sweet Studio Newborn Session in Greenwich, Connecticut

Spring is nearly here, but much of life remains the same as it did about a year ago. So, a recent pandemic newborn session it is! I’m excited to share this studio newborn session captured at my Greenwich, Connecticut studio. I can always make something beautiful in my dreamy studio! I created this session for two physicians and their sweet newborn daughter, Lily. I am always so flattered when, from all the local area photographers, our healthcare heroes choose me. Mom and dad’s dusty blue colored tops really allowed their adoration for their baby girl to come through! I adored their color palette, and that nothing took away from showing off Lily.

Schedule Your Newborn Session With Karen Kahn

On dad’s face was the look every photographer wants to get from their new fathers! Can you even with the warmth of this new family? The family’s simple love shone through each image from this session. And oh my goodness, are they beautiful.

With the studio as our setting, of course we had the prettiest session. The studio has so many terrific spots for photos. I have completely fallen in love with the space and how it highlights the relationships I capture within its walls. You might not necessarily think of love when you think of a photography studio, yet here it is. Being able to capture blissful memories here means everything to me.

Thank you to Sible for her transparency about her and Luis’ work environment and for sharing a bit of Lily’s birth story with me. I really bond with moms who aren’t afraid to share those ‘in the trenches’ moments. Being able to share that in this place, with this new family, was more special than I could have ever imagined.

Lily was a perfect angel. I am incredibly happy with the moments captured of a new mother, new father, and their daughter. There’s something about the unassuming nature of the studio that doesn’t overshadow the adoration between people who love each other.

Grady – A Studio Newborn Session at Looking Up Photography’s Greenwich, Connecticut Studio

 

Photographing repeat clients at my studio is such a joy. This session started when mom Jess contacted me about a second session because she loved the newborn session with their first child so much! This client is wonderful, and she was happy to tell me that she booked with Looking Up Photography again due to how happy she was with her previous photos, as well as my professionalism. Such a compliment!

Celebrate your growing family with a studio newborn session!

We had a beautiful time in the studio. The client’s classic clothing choices were great, and I especially loved having Emmett in the studio again!

See Emmett’s newborn session here!

We set up in our incredible little spot, and the scene was set for a fun morning with this family. The family just enjoyed each other’s company, going with the natural flow of the session. The type of session itself leant itself to the fall and holiday vibe mom requested. It was a lovely way to spend a couple of hours! Jess and Dan were always nearby and baby Grady was in great hands. As a professional newborn photographer, safety is of the utmost importance to me, and my experience with infants was one of the reasons Jess asked me to photograph their family as they welcomed their second child!

Emmett was wonderful with his new baby brother – especially for being under two years old himself. I’m kind of obsessed with the image of Grady in his Santa-inspired outfit! That little hat – I can’t get enough of it.

The joy this family exudes is gorgeous. I love a good Greenwich studio newborn session, and I had such a blast with this family.

A Studio Newborn Session in Greenwich, Connecticut – Naina

Being a part of life’s biggest moments for families is literally my job. So yes, even when it seemed like the whole world might be closed indefinitely, in the view of the still ongoing situation, I celebrated a birth with this nearby Purchase, New York family! Whether it’s a milestone birthday, first steps, or a family reunion, each celebration is one my clients will cherish forever. This studio newborn session was for a first-time client. Pretty cool, I think!

I truly loved mom Snehi’s clothing suggestions, and I especially loved the fact that Snehi and Nikhil brought along their 5 year-old Boston Terrier/cattle dog mix, Nate. Those of you who have fur babies of your own will get a kick out of this session. I am always so inspired when pets are involved in family sessions. I say well-behaved fur babies are always welcome, and I tell my clients so!

This growing family also wanted to celebrate their Indian culture, and what better way than with a studio newborn session? In India, the name Naina is another name of the goddess Durga Maa, and it also means “beautiful eyes”. This adorable baby girl sure lives up to her name!

Her eyes, like her name, are incredibly beautiful. I LOVED that mom brought along a selection of saris to honor her heritage. In Hindu Dharma, the color red is used for auspicious occasions such as the birth of a child, marriage, and during festivals. The colors of mom’s saris served to accentuate the emotions and pride present throughout this session. I adore these touches!

Classic Studio Newborn Session – Tyler

The world may have closed indefinitely due to the current novel coronavirus pandemic, but babies are still born every day and each one is worth celebrating! This studio newborn session was for a first-time client who found me via Greenwich Moms. Pretty cool, I think!

I truly loved mom’s straightforward requests, and especially the navy color! I am so inspired by darker hues these days. I say classic colors are always welcome in the studio, and I tell my clients so for each and every session.

This couple wanted to celebrate the birth of their first human child, and what better way than with a studio newborn session?! I note “human child” because Nicole mentioned that they have a miniature goldendoodle who’s spoiled enough to probably be considered their “first child”. Hopefully Tyler’s fur-sibling has adjusted well to the new baby!

My favorite photo from this session is the image of Tyler wearing a red, white, and blue football-themed stocking cap. While themed props aren’t typically my cup of tea, it brings to mind Nicole’s sweet request for a special image for her husband, Ross, who’s obsessed with football and the Patriots. I love that this particular photograph is meaningful to dad, and I love that the visual information in the photograph tells you that story right away! Keep scrolling to see all of the details and also to see that wonderful image!

Celebrate your growing family with a studio newborn session!

Warm Family Studio Newborn Session Inspiration – Pia

When I first started photographing families at my studio, I knew exactly what I wanted to capture in my amazing and cozy Connecticut space. Greenwich is a popular long-weekend location for other New Englanders, and most people who live in the region will find themselves here at some point. I knew I wanted to take photographs that make it look like my client families receive small-town, personalized service – because that’s exactly what they get from me. Is there anything better than having a photographer’s undivided attention? Here’s the evidence in favor!

I also want to point out that if you’re thinking of booking a studio session with me, I love the use of dad’s traditional cultural clothing in this session. When clients bring in those family heirlooms for a studio newborn portrait session, I often find that those images become their favorites, which is beautiful. The red of this garment truly emits the joy of a celebration. I’m inspired to use rich colors more often!

Now, when it came to the family, I was so flattered to have this client contact me last minute, after their daughter had been born. In her new client questionnaire, when asked how she found Looking Up Photography, mom Margaret stated that the images I take are “pure bliss.” How in the world could anyone say no to that inquiry? Thank you, Margaret. Those words will stay with me for a long time to come. I want to say, too, that adorable baby girl Pia was super easy-going and cooperative. I have no doubt that she will be brought up fabulously according to her parents’ family values of faith, love, and respect.

Cheers to new life!

Lia – Inspiring Light and Airy Family Newborn Session at the Studio

Many families love to reconnect with each other after the busyness of the holidays, so it’s only natural that photo sessions are popular this time of year. Luckily, I have some amazing inspiration for you, for the dreamiest studio newborn session at my Greenwich, Connecticut studio. If you’re planning your “first quarter” of the new year and want to plan a little treat for yourself and your family, look no further! Take a trip to Greenwich, and let’s make magic together with a beautiful late winter photo session!

Greenwich is about an hour’s drive from New York, and I love visiting “The City” with my family for our special occasions. New York City is full of surprises, and I never cease to be amazed by the fact that there is always charm to be found there, even in such a massive metropolis. As one of the oldest cities in the United States, New York is also full of history (and can be incredibly romantic). I love the cobblestone of Historic Stone Street, which is just a short 15-minute walk from the 9/11 Memorial.

Let’s start with the fact that this family are new clients. I absolutely loved meeting them and capturing their studio family newborn session. Their daughter’s name, Lia, is such a beautiful name. Paired with their sweet son’s name, Ian, and it’s a cute kids names party!

The studio setting is just gorgeous. I love finding inspiration in different nooks and crannies of my studio space, and I never get tired of it. Isn’t it pretty? And speaking of pretty, this family made perfect clothing choices for the light and airy look mom wanted. I especially loved mom’s top – such a great, classic piece!

These two siblings will obviously be close, and young Ian was very well behaved. Well behaved toddlers are a dream to work with!

Wouldn’t you love to have a photo like the one of Ian and Lia, from when you were young?! Anytime is really the perfect time to capture sweet memories. Nothing better than a cuddle with your best friend for life.

The studio is always an amazing session setting; I’d love to work with you here!

Bennett – A Simple Studio Newborn Session

 

Valentine’s Day is nearly here, and I can’t wait! While we may not be able to celebrate with the traditional fun, I’m ready for anything that brings about joy.

Mid-winter season seems like the perfect time to share a simple and understated session. I had the pleasure of photographing newborn studio imagery for new parents Kellie and Kenny, who found me via Yelp. Kenny is a chef – how fun is that! Kellie and Kenny love cooking together and trying out new restaurants. I’m sure Bennett is going to have an amazing and adventurous palate!

I’m excited to share this session. Take a look at some of my favorite images below!

newborn photos

One of the best things about this growing family is Kellie and Kenny’s love for travel. They even traveled to Bali and Singapore early in Kellie’s pregnancy. Kellie told me they’d be decorating the nursery with items from their travels. As such, we kept it simple for this session with their new son, with only minimal props. A neutral palette allowed the studio newborn session to purely showcase the love these new parents have for each other and baby Bennett. Kenny was absolutely smitten with his baby boy, and so attentive to both Bennett and Kellie! It was positively the best. I know this family will only grow closer as Bennett grows up.

This stage with a newborn is all about – well – new everything, and a sense of wonder at everything your baby does. Everything is exciting. As a mother to slightly older children now, it’s so fun for me to watch this in my clients. Like being a new parent all over again. I know maybe that sounds cliché, but it’s so true, isn’t it?! The feeling these images give parents of all ages.

I’d love to work with you on creating these deep emotions and fabulous memories with your growing family.

Bodie – A Light-Filled Studio Family Newborn Session

Today I’m sharing a client session I adore! I was absolutely smitten with these clients. I knew I was going to have a blast with them when mom, Kimberly, made a joke about “everyone” (mainly her husband) behaving during their session.

How cute is their little two year-old, Charlie? I swear, that child had more smiles for me than just about any toddler I’ve ever photographed! Kimberly was concerned that capturing a few special moments with baby Bodie and big brother Charlie might be wishful thinking, but just wait until you see these precious images of proud big brother. Parents, I am not above singing the PJ Masks theme song to elicit such grins from your sweet kiddos!

Although this was my first time working with this family, they are some of my new favorite Looking Up Photography clients. I hope to have more fun with this family in the future, for family photo sessions!

I’ll start with the details, like our beautiful Greenwich, Connecticut studio location. Perfectly minimal, just as mom requested! Some clients want me to bring out all the props. While my prop catalog is made up of sweet, minimal accessories, this mother wanted to keep their session as simple and intimate as possible. I’m so glad that, as new clients referred to me by past clients through a Facebook group for moms, this family absolutely trusted me as a professional. All the neutral hues the studio shows off bring an ethereal element to the images from this newborn family session. I love the pretty and unique textures brought out in the white blankets and wraps I chose for these newborn session photos. So delightful! 

The classic wardrobe selections really made the family’s expressions pop, expressing such joy together!

I always have fun playing in the studio with my families. I’d love to see you for a newborn session, too!

Greenwich Photography Studio – Kaia – Newborn Photos

The holidays have come and gone, and what’s next? Valentine’s Day! This sweet holiday often goes unnoticed, but can be so much fun, and is as good as any holiday in my opinion. As a matter of fact, I’ve already been talking with upcoming clients about how we can subtly celebrate February the 14th (during their upcoming sessions, of course – I am a photographer after all). Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see all the upcoming cuteness!

Let’s Stay Connected!

This session was held right here at my beautiful studio, in Greenwich, Connecticut. You know delightful I think this setting is! I invite you to come me make magic with me at the studio. Keep scrolling for an exquisite session example.

Lots of subtle style for this session! Beginning with the adorable family. When mom used the word “serendipitously” in her client questionnaire, I knew this session was going to be extra fun for me. 

I love how Hien styled herself and dad Seth. It was quite fitting that they layered neutrals and light textures for this studio newborn portrait session.

I always find myself inspired by my clients when it comes to my What To Wear Pinterest sections. I’m now thinking about soft, beautiful family style pieces for Spring 2021 ahead. Soon you’ll find these styles gracing my Pinterest Pins. So, whether you’re visiting my blog to see my incredible families or are looking to style your own family for a session, be sure you have this board bookmarked.

And how about Kaia’s precious little face? I can’t get enough.

Hien is such a gorgeous new mother, and I’m confident that Hien and Seth will remember these moments forever.

You may notice one of my favorite images (of Seth and baby Kaia), which I also used as part of my Newborn Master Photographer portfolio submission for the National Association of Professional Child Photographers!
