The Bloom of New Life | Connecticut Newborn Photography

There’s a unique beauty in new life. In this session, that beauty was this gorgeous newborn and her loving parents, and the special bond that they have with each other. We had such a wonderful time in this creative newborn session, and I enjoyed getting to know the parents. Mom said, “My husband and I have been together for 9 years, married for 1, and happily expecting our first child together. We recently moved to Greenwich from Westchester, and have spent a lot of time designing our space.” She describes why this has been great for them: “It’s made us work hard together as we make big decisions, and in a sense, it’s been preparing us for parenthood and all the future stresses and choices we’ll be making together. It’s a growing experience, and one that I’m grateful that we get to share!”

I share Mom and Dad’s love for design, and wanted to showcase that creativity in their session. We settled on a set design that focused on vivid pops of color, with natural flowers and leafy props to go with their newborn’s blooming beauty. I loved swaddling baby girl in these soft and subtle fabrics, surrounded by the cuddly textures of the fur. There’s nothing softer than a newborn’s skin, though, and you can see how precious it is just by looking at her tiny toes. We also wanted to capture their little one without any distraction, with a simple white backdrop in my studio. Baby’s personality really popped with the minimal set, and the little bit of pink in the headband was the perfect accent.

No one was happier in this session than Mom and Dad, and it was truly special to see such a deep love for their newborn in their gaze. It was a joy to capture the whole family in this session. While you can never be totally prepared for a child, they are ready for all the stresses and joys of being a new parent. It’s exciting to see the love that they have for each other, and it’s wonderful to know that it will only continue blooming into something more beautiful as they grow together.

Enjoy!

Family Values | Darien, CT Newborn Photographer

Family is one of the most important things in life, and so are the values that we hold dear. This wonderful family from Darien, CT knows this well, and can’t wait to teach their firstborn son all about it! Their little one was so peaceful in his newborn session, napping almost the whole way through. We chose muted tones for our color palette, sticking with grays, whites, dark blue and pops of orange in most of our scenes. I love the monochrome of the gray in one of the scenes, complete with a tiny knit stocking cap to keep his little head cozy. I never tire of being amazed at just how small and cute newborns are, and they get even more precious to me after each session.

The family moved to Connecticut from New York City: “We just moved to Darien a few weeks ago, having lived in NYC since we graduated college.” She said, “We’ve been together for almost six years now, and we’re so excited to welcome our beautiful son to our family!” It was wonderful to have the whole family in the studio, and we got some gorgeous photos of all three of them together, bursting with love for each other. They’re a beautiful family, and you can see just from the pictures alone how strong their bond is. They said, “We were both raised to value family above all else, and look forward to raising our son the same way.” You can see the dedication that they have to each other; their son is in the best of hands.

I had a lot of fun playing around with color in this newborn session, and I love how much the orange added to each scene. In one scene, I included a variety of textures and patterns, with fur, knit and stripes all coming together to make for a cohesive and interesting picture. My favorites, though, have to be the portraits with mom and dad, alone with their new baby. The passion that they have for their son, and the drive that they have to grow him into someone who values the most important things in life was inspiring. It was a joy to spend time with them.

Enjoy!

Sleepy summer beach baby girl nestled in soft whites and cool blue hydrangeas and shells for Connecticut newborn session baby portrait

Connecticut WaterScape summer baby portrait sessions celebrate your beach baby’s unique personality, as they’re surrounded by cool blues and soft whites!

If you’re a parent, then you know how hard it can be to get good photos of your family. It’s an even greater task getting everyone to smile and look at the camera, and getting yourself in there with them? Nearly impossible.

 

I get the challenge! I’ve always had a passion for getting the perfect picture, so I understand what goes into making that happen. I’ve dedicated my career to taking that burden off of your shoulders, providing families with lasting treasures that capture not only what you look like, but who you really are.

In modern life where everything whizzes by, it’s important to have your most special moments preserved, forever kept safe from the march of time. There’s an art to this, and that’s the way I approach every photo shoot, and especially so in our exclusives like this summer’s WaterScape sessions.

Designed and created by renowned artist and photographer Heidi Hope, the WaterScape vignette is made up of colors that evoke fluffy clouds lazily floating in the deep blue summer sky, and the scene captures the joyful feeling that comes from a soft breeze on a sun-kissed summer day. It’s filled with an ethereal blue, and features a monochromatic palette with multiple poses and props included to make for a stress-free and beautiful experience for you and your beach baby!

The session options include standard and mini newborn sessions, baby milestone, and cake smash sessions, so you have a variety to choose from to feature your little one. The session is perfect if you love a beach or nautical theme, or if you simply want some fine artwork for the nursery, to give it a tranquil and serene atmosphere. In every session, we make it easy and fun, taking care of every precious detail so all you have to do is show up, enjoy the experience, and treasure the results.

The WaterScape session will capture the new addition to your family in a way that you’ll love to remember for years to come. It’s full of little details that all serve to point to the beauty of your baby, capturing their unique personality as they’re surrounded by cool blues and soft whites. It’s the perfect way to celebrate your child this summer!

WaterScape sessions are exclusively available in Connecticut through Looking Up Photography, and only available from July 25 to Sept. 20. Contact me here to reserve your WaterScape session today!

– Enjoy!

Bubbling Excitement | Greenwich Newborn Photographer

There is a certain kind of joy that you never see anywhere else: the joy that comes from meeting your child for the first time. The excitement that new parents have for their newborn produces such an amazing joy in them that both Mom and Dad just can’t stop smiling, and it was such a wonderful thing to see in this newborn session! The couple moved into Greenwich recently after living in the city for a decade, and they’re loving the transition. Of course, that wasn’t the only big change in their lives, and definitely not their favorite of the two. Their new little one is adorable, and I loved capturing their first child in her first few days. This session was such a special one, with both Mom and Dad in on the fun. I was able to capture some truly beautiful moments between them and their precious newborn, with one of my favorites being where they gazed into each other’s eyes as they held their new baby; they had the unmistakable look of a couple smitten with a deep love for each other. Those small moments can slip by so quickly, but they’re filled with some of the deepest love you can witness and it’s an honor to see it firsthand!

We filled the session with a variety of poses and scenes, and included some portraits of Dad and Mom holding their little girl. In one scene, I kept the colors neutral to highlight their newborn’s gorgeous skin tone, and played off of it with a textured pink blanket, and added a little white accent flower to pull it all together. While this is a newborn session, at its heart it’s really about the whole family, so we included some pictures of the trio all together. I always try to capture babies as they are, creating a scene around them to make for a unique picture centered on them. No baby ever arrives with perfect skin, and I love to showcase their ‘imperfections’ in their session. It adds another layer of beauty to an already gorgeous child, and this session is a great example of this!

All in all, it was such a wonderful experience capturing a precious family’s beloved newborn, especially her tiny grin. Everyone was all smiles throughout the whole newborn session, and I loved getting to know this passionate trio! They have an excitement about them that lingered long after they had left the studio, and they left with each beautiful memory captured in their session, to have with them forever.

– Enjoy!

There’s Comfort in Family | Greenwich, CT Newborn Photographer

A family is a powerful thing. There’s a bond between them that gives comfort and security, warming the heart when it gets cold. This handsome newborn’s family has this bond, and it was a wonderful thing to witness! Their beautiful baby boy was a dream, and I loved capturing his new and unique personality. Mom and Dad both work together in production for commercials, with film and animation. They’re a creative duo that loves the closeness that comes from doing business together. They’ve been waiting for some time for this baby boy, he being their first child, and were filled with excitement for their first newborn session!

Mom and Dad’s journey to Connecticut involved a few states: “My husband was originally from Colorado”, Mom said, “but we met in my birth area, New York City, where we worked. While we were living together, we started in NYC, then moved to Colorado, then back to the Big Apple, and finally to where I grew up, the lovely state of Connecticut. Our house is on the water in Stamford, and we love living on the beach!” Sounds like they’ve really found their home now, and with their newborn, they couldn’t be happier. For their little guy’s session, we wanted to compliment his handsome skin tone with a soft taupe, and add a textured backdrop with the dark wood. The white, flurry of fur was the perfect pairing to go with his tender skin, and we tied the palette off with him resting on blue knits and a driftwood basket. I loved the masculine, yet softer tones in this session, and I adored catching his tired yawns. Those are cute moments that slip by so quickly, and they’re what make a newborn session so valuable.

Mom shared a bit about what family means to them: “We both lost our mothers this last year”, said Mom, “so this family unit – my husband, baby, dog and I – is our world! We absolutely love family time.” Time can go by so fast, and at the end of our lives, the things that will matter most to us is family, and the memories we made with them. A newborn session is the start of capturing a family’s history, and creating a lasting legacy that will extend generations into the future. This lovely family in the session knows this deeply, and have waited so long for this amazing experience of new life, knitting their family even closer together.

❤  – Enjoy!

Keep looking up...that's the secret of life...

My Story (Greenwich Family Photographer)

I take pictures to inspire clients to see themselves as beautiful and loved, and to honor and cherish their children.

I take pictures to capture precious moments in life and preserve them for the future. I believe in saving family heirlooms and memories to help build a family’s history, and to provide keepsakes that my clients can look at years later and experience the love and joy all over again. 

I’m motivated by the connection between loved ones, and the inspiration and hope that flows out of new life and new families.

I specialize in maternity and newborn photography because I’m heartened by the vulnerability, honesty, tenderness, and strength in expectant mothers and babies at this pivotal moment in time. It’s an honor to be trusted to participate in this amazing moment, and to capture these qualities that are exposed during my portrait sessions. New life is new inspiration!!

I strive to motivate my clients to celebrate their loved ones, their children, and their beauty through portrait photography. My dream for them is to have the images we create together become true heirlooms to cherish for generations to come.

I want my clients to feel our session together was special, because capturing this precious moment in time is a wonderful choice to make for them and their children. I want my clients to feel I brought out the love and connection they have with one another.

I give my all to every client session. I give kindness, patience, a warm and friendly atmosphere, an open heart and an open mind. And, of course, my vision and talent. I believe doing business with this approach is key to creating moments and images that will truly matter to my clients

My mission is to amplify positivity for my clients. I use my talent to inspire people to remember that children are a gift, they are beautiful, they are our future, and they are the heart of all families. To me there are no exceptions to this, and through my artistic process with my clients I reinforce this idea of universal beauty and the central importance of love.
