1st birthday cake smash session

Reliving the Roaring 20’s | Connecticut One Year Session

The 20’s are back again, baby! And so is little Elodie, celebrating her first birthday with a 20’s themed Cake Smash Session. I loved celebrating her birth a year ago with her newborn session, and ever since then she’s only grown more beautiful and more full of personality!

Her parents, Leah and Patrick, worked together with me to incorporate the perfect theme for this birthday bash in the studio. I loved their idea to incorporate 20’s/Great Gatsby themed outfits and decorations into this session! The outfits were wonderful, with a pink onesie and a pink skirt reminding you of a timeless era, and a feathery headband with strings of pearls completed the look. The colors were bright and happy, to match Elodie’s beaming smile.

Cake Smash Sessions are some of my favorites, especially when I get to see how a newborn that I had the pleasure of meeting just a year ago has grown. Elodie’s parents were able to match the cake to her personality, as the cake in this kind of session is able to be customized and personalized to match the vision for the shoot. Before Elodie dug into her own gorgeous cake, we were able to capture some wonderful moments. If I had to pick, some of my favorites were her cute expressions as she sat calmly on our gray easy chair, waiting for a chance to get at her cake.

After a quick wardrobe change, Elodie was ready to dig in to her scrumptious cake, and she (and her parents!) loved every moment of it! Her pearls and her headband, combined with her frilly skirt, captured the atmosphere of the 20’s in a beautiful way, even if that wasn’t at the front of Elodie’s mind. She had no fear of the mess, and she started smashing away at the delectable in front of her. She was fascinated with the frosting, wiping it on her outfit and even painting the floor with it!

We were able to capture some wonderful forever moments to celebrate Elodie’s first year, and I’m sure that mom and dad will treasure these memories for years to come.

Is your baby’s birthday coming up? A cake smash session is the perfect way to celebrate, while capturing the precious moments in your family’s life. Contact me here to book your session today!

Baby's 1st year baby Milestone Sessions

Growing Up So Fast | Greenwich Baby Milestone Photography

Our babies grow up soo fast! Ever since the day that we hold them in our arms for the first time, the clock seems to move faster and faster with each passing day. What seems like just yesterday was really six months ago, and our helpless little bundle of joy is starting to learn to crawl around on their own. Milestone after milestone is hit, and we may want to hit pause on life to keep them from growing up too quickly. If only we could! The next best thing, though, is freezing these moments in time, these big milestone moments that you want to remember every detail of. 

This is exactly what Rebecca chose for her son Wesley! She wanted to capture these special times in her precious boy’s life to enjoy forever, so she chose one of my Baby’s First Year Packages, the Baby Milestone Session, which includes four sessions starting at 3 months, with the last session at their first birthday. Rebecca wanted to focus on capturing her son naturally, avoiding poses and too many props. This sort of session was perfect for that, as it’s built around showcasing the baby as they are in each stage: grabbing their toes, tummy time, sitting up, crawling, and standing, building up to their first birthday!

For Wes’ session, Rebecca loved the idea of white on white. At the 3-month shoot, she dressed her boy up in a white, short-sleeve onesie, and we kept the same theme going throughout all of the sessions. Wes’ handsome smile and gorgeous auburn hair were on full display as they stood out against the white backdrop, and I loved capturing his happy personality! 

Mom said, “I’m hoping for all of the photos to focus on what he is doing naturally at the time of the photos, starting with tummy time or on his back reaching for his toes. I want to capture the way he interacts with the world naturally at each interval.” This was our focus for the whole year, and we started with Wes on his back in the first session, and when he came back 3 months later, he was already starting to crawl! On the white wood floor, we got some wonderful shots of Wes just exploring his surroundings, always with a smile.

At nine months, we included a small, neutral chair in the mix, as Wes was now pulling himself up. He was also very good at crawling, which made for a fun time in the studio! He always seemed fascinated with the camera, looking straight into the lens. You can tell that he already loves being in front of the camera! On his birthday 3 months later, we celebrated with our final session. With a gray balloon, fitting into our neutral theme, Wes stood tall, still smiling wide for us. The joy of getting to know this wonderful family and this beautiful little boy made for a great experience, both for me and for Rebecca. She now has a full year of milestones to look back on, even as Wes grows more and more.

If you want to capture these beautiful moments in your own life, contact me here to book your session today!

Enjoy!

Meeting a Need | Connecticut Newborn Photographer

If I had to pick something to do for the rest of my life, chances are it would be newborn photography. It’s the perfect blend of each of my greatest passions, from setting up a scene, to working out the best way to capture those tiny features, all the way to the time spent with the family and their precious new human. So when I got a call from a family whose photographer canceled last minute, I jumped at the chance to give them the session they deserved.

I was happy to fit them into the schedule, even though it was during the holiday crunch for family portraits and cards. They were so grateful to have a session for their lovely daughter, who had just been born. Because it was during the holiday season, we went ahead and created one set design for a joint birth announcement/holiday card, and they were so thrilled with how it turned out! For the newborn session, we wanted to go for a variety of scenes, as well as a holiday theme with Christmas colors. 

I loved setting up the pink floral theme, which had the perfect color tones and textures to play off of her light skin tone, and I was even able to get a gorgeous shot of her precious little feet. We also went for a bit of a white space scene, with a pop of green on her headband, and a bit of lace around her to add a some texture. Then we got the whole family in the shot (besides their Pomeranian puppy!), and set up a lovely green backdrop full of Christmas lights for that whimsical feel. Mom and Dad looked so in love with their little bundle of joy, and their daughter looked wonderful.

It’s stories like this that make me love my job so much! I was thrilled to meet such a precious need for this lovely family, and it was a joy getting to know them. If you’re in need, don’t hesitate! Contact me here to set up your session today.

Enjoy!

A Wonderful Story | Connecticut Baby Photographer

 There’s a wonderful beauty seen when you can watch someone’s unique story unfold before your eyes. I’ve had the amazing joy of witnessing my beautiful friend and her gorgeous child grow together over time, from maternity now into her child’s first birthday. She has chosen to have me capture her daughter’s three milestones – 4, 8, and 12 months – as well as her maternity and newborn sessions. If you don’t remember my friend, here’s a bit of her back story: this close friend of mine is from White Plains, and works as a middle and high school math teacher, which means she’s brilliant – and brave! So brave, in fact, that she chose to have her child through in vitro fertilization, and it’s been one of the most wonderful decision she’s made. It has been a joy watching her change and grow in the best of ways, and it has been such a pleasure to capture every step.

 

Aside from the maternity and newborn sessions we’ve done together, we wanted to be sure to capture those big moments of her daughter’s life in a precious way. Across the sessions, we wanted to sprinkle in props to add even more to the cuteness level, with sequin bows and floral headbands. I love to surround a baby’s soft skin with soft furs and fabrics, and we played around with colors to create the perfect palette. My friend has such a creative mind, and she inspired a lot of scenes you’ll see in the photos below. We had a lot of fun with balloons, and with little lights in the background to give it a whimsical feel. Looking back through each of the portraits, it’s truly amazing to see the amount of growth that happens in such a short amount of time.

Because a child grows so fast, it makes it so important to capture those big milestones in their first year, and even before they enter the world! My lovely friend was intentional in doing this for her child, and now she has so many wonderful portraits to remember the times when her daughter was so tiny. Baby milestone sessions are the perfect way to remember those moments, and there are multiple packages to choose from! From all-inclusive sessions that go from the first month to the twelfth, or a first year package that covers the 4, 8, and 12 month milestones, like my friend chose, you have the option of choosing the best package for you!

Moments like these pictures below are so precious, and they deserve to be remembered forever. You can see more of the moments that I’ve captured in this Baby Milestone Session Gallery, to bet a better idea of what’s offered in the packages. My wonderful friend chose to tell her and her daughter’s story through these special moments, and I can do the same for you! Contact me here to get started, but be sure to look through the photos below first – they’ll make your day.

Enjoy!

Baby Milestone Sessions | CT Baby Photographer

Some of the most precious things on this planet are little humans. A close second are those who take care of these little ones; the joy that’s spread across their faces when they watch their babies “pose” for the camera is one of my favorite sights. That joy is what makes Baby Milestone Sessions so important to have, as it captures that joy and preserves it until long after the child becomes an adult. And as every parent knows, time passes so quickly, and before you know it your kiddo is all grown up. Capturing their milestones as they happen, starting from their first weeks, all the way to their first birthday will, in essence, stop the march of time. Every step along the way is a precious moment begging to be remembered by the whole family, and Baby Milestone Sessions allow you to do just that.

When choosing your Milestone Session, there are multiple packages to choose from, depending on which suits your needs best. If you’re looking for a few wonderful images of your child and some flexibility, then the Mini Session is perfect for you. The session is available for babies between 1 month and 12 months old, which means you can’t really be late to the game. There is also the Baby’s First Year Package, which comes in two styles, to highlight different milestones. The first style includes three 20-minute sessions, held at 4 months, 8 months, and 12 months. Each session, like the Mini Session, includes 4 professionally edited high-res photos of your little one in the studio, with the option for additional prints to be purchased.

For the second style of First Year Package, the focus is on the milestones your child hits at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 12 months, which means you will get four sessions in the studio, and 4 images from each session. These studio sessions are fantastic, because you have the whole studio wardrobe and all the props available to you to choose from, to surround your baby in its own budding personality. And of course, there’s always the option to upgrade your 12 month session in a First Year plan to a Cake Smash Session, which is perfect for those who want to make their child’s first birthday a “smash!”

I love to get to know each family before the session, so each package includes a pre-session questionnaire and planning via phone or email. This allows me to know exactly who your child is, and how best to represent who they are in their session, as well as help you to be comfortable knowing that your baby is in good hands.

The beauty of your child deserves to be captured, and remembered throughout their whole lives. Those milestones, as precious and as monumental as they are, only last for a brief moment. Often we let these moments slip by unnoticed, but there is a way to stop the march of time.

Simply contact me and book your portraits – it’s the perfect time for a Baby Milestone Session.

Enjoy!

Girl with long hair and big eyes and festive red dress blowing glitter in the air in whimsical Joyful Gatherings gold set design for fall holiday portrait session

Joyful Gatherings, and The Heart of Fall | New Limited Edition Festive Theme

There is a special beauty to fall and the winter holidays. You can see it in the wonderful colors appearing on the trees, the brisker air in the mornings, and the pumpkin-everything all around us. It’s hard to pin the wonders of the season down, and bottle up its essence, until you strip away everything but its core – its central beauty. We did just that with our new theme, Joyful Gatherings.

This season’s Joyful Gatherings theme has a heart of gold. Think deep, warm, and burnished golds, with creamy whites and rich browns. In the same way that you bundle up to face the ever-colder weather, this theme wraps you and your family in layers of warm colors, with a dash of festive sparkle. 

It all starts in the studio, which will be all set up and ready to capture the soul of both you and your family. As parents, we know that capturing beautiful images of your family is hard, and often you’re lucky if you just get one photo where everybody is smiling. In our studio, we work hard to make sure that you not only get pictures with everybody sporting their smile, but pictures that you’ll love to show off as well. We have a passion for this, and in each of our themes, we make it so that the only thing you have to do is show up, and enjoy the process.

In this festive theme, you’ll have a 20-minute session at our studio in Greenwich, which has been decorated with the heart of this joyous season. You have a lot of session options available to you in this session, so you can personalize it according to what you love, and who you are. Joyful Gatherings is the perfect thing for your holiday cards, holiday gifts, newborn sessions, keepsake albums, cake smash sessions, and even makes for unique baby announcements. No matter where you’re at in life, we’ll meet you there, ready to capture it for you to keep with you forever.

You’ll have full access to the studio props and wardrobe, making for a simple and easy session. After the session, you’ll choose from 8+ professionally edited photos, and take home 4 high res digital images – and of course, there’s always the option to purchase additional images and products. That’s a good thing, because you’ll want to display these pictures all over your house, and even make them a festive centerpiece.

The exclusive Joyful Gatherings theme is only available from now until December 9th, but you still have plenty of time to book your session. Contact us for all the details, pricing, and open dates for booking.

We can’t wait to hear from you, and capture your beautiful family surrounded by one of our favorite themes yet. Come and get festive with us, and book your session today!

 

Enjoy!

Sleepy baby girl posed reclining on arms with lovely hair and flower headband and pouty lips on white blanket for newborn portrait session

Many Blessings | Connecticut Newborn Photographer

With time comes some of the most wonderful blessings. If you’ve been following the blog for a little while, you’ll remember my lovely friend’s maternity session, and her amazing story. Since then, she’s given birth, and her child is every bit as beautiful as we expected, and more so. The many blessings that my gorgeous friend has experienced during the pregnancy pale in comparison to the best blessing of all, that she now holds in her arms. 

For this newborn session, we wanted to focus on a few different scenes, and include everybody in the shoot – even our furry friend! One of the scenes surrounded her gorgeous newborn in soft furs, a pink blanket, and a cute pearled headband to match. I accented with a flower and some textured grays, to round out the palette. I loved capturing the budding personality of this lovely new person, and I especially love the picture we got of those tiny little toes! We also got some photos of this precious little human against a lightly textured, white backdrop, so we could cut out the background and focus on the wonderful beauty of a newborn fast asleep. We brought out the driftwood basket again, and the contrast of using nature to hold a new life was one that I loved to use. But, the most precious photos were of mom and her child together.

It has been amazing to witness this wonderful friend of mine in her motherhood journey. She’s incredibly inspiring, and she teaches me so many things about life and what it means to be a mother. The love that she’s shown towards her child even while she still carried her inside was a beautiful thing to see, and it’s only ever grown since. I love how creative we get together, planning out our sessions and brainstorming the color schemes. I always jump at the chance to work with her artsy mind, and it truly was a blessing to capture this special time with her and her newborn. I can’t wait until the next session we have together!

Enjoy!

Pouty cuteness in gold and pink themes themed cake smash session for one year old milestone baby girl looking adorable in onesie with gray polka dots for 12 month portrait

Exclusive Cake Smash Sessions | Greenwich, CT Photographer

There are very few things as precious as your baby. As I’m sure you well know by now, their first months go by so quickly, so much so that the thought of getting professional pictures taken was stuck at the back of your mind. Now that they’re nearing the one-year milestone, it’s time to celebrate their birthday with a smash, in their very own Cake Smash Session!

Looking Up Photography’s exclusive Cake Smash Sessions are centered on your gorgeous almost-one-year-old baby, and captures all the smiles, giggles, and joy your child experiences as they ‘smash’ their own special cake. The cake is really a giant cupcake, personalized by you and your baby as you pick out the shell color, frosting color, and theme for embellishments (allergy waiver required). I love the themes that parents in the past have picked out, from dapper bowties and mustaches all the way to cowboy-boot headbands and frilly skirts. They’ve all had such great taste, and in your own cake smash session, you’ll have a lot of freedom to showcase your own baby’s budding personality!

Before the big celebration, we’ll have a pre-session questionnaire via phone or email, so we can get a good sense of who your family is, to create the best session for you. Once you book your session, you’ll meet us in the studio with your precious little one, ready to dig in and get into the cutest mess – a mess that you don’t have to clean up! It’s the best of both worlds, where you can watch your baby have oodles of fun smashing up a giant cupcake, without any responsibility for the aftermath. As you can see from the pictures below, there’s a wide range of props available, where you’ll get to choose your favorites for your own unique theme. We’ll have a 30-minute session at our studio in Greenwich, CT, and we’ll pack every minute with fun and joy!

After we’ve captured all of the wonderful moments of your baby’s birthday bash, the photos will be professionally edited, and we’ll narrow it down to the 10 best digital, high-res images, and set up an 11×14 print as well. Of course, there’s always the option to purchase additional prints and print products from your Cake Smash Session, because we guarantee that you won’t be able to get enough of this session!

Each Cake Smash Session is all inclusive, and priced at $500. If you’ve purchased a package already and can’t live without seeing your baby in this unique session, then you can easily upgrade your Mini or Milestone Sessions to a Cake Smash Session for only $150 more! It’s the perfect option for your priceless child.

Enjoy!

Black and white back-lit expecting mommy draped in lovely lace fabric cradling belly for posed maternity portrait session

The Beauty of Motherhood | Maternity Photographer in Connecticut

There’s an infectious joy that a new mother has, and it’s a beautiful thing to witness. This maternity session with my close friend was a joyful and wonderful time, and I’m so glad we were able to capture her happiness in her session! We both have a passion for creativity and love to put our minds together to come up with artsy ideas, which was perfect for this session. We experimented with different fabrics and flower accents, focusing on a soft palette to highlight her warm skin tones and timeless beauty. I arranged for her to get her hair and makeup done at Maria Livesay Salon, which is conveniently located only five minutes from the studio. It’s a service I offer to each of my clients, and it was a wonderful perk to this session!

My lovely friend hails from White Plains, and works as a middle and high school math teacher. She’s an incredibly strong woman, and a single mother, having her child through in vitro fertilization. I’m inspired by her courage everyday, and I have loved seeing her change into someone even more joyful and wonderful throughout her pregnancy. She’s always wanted to be a mother, and is so thrilled for what’s to come! She has a large and loving family near and far who are so excited for her, and can’t wait to meet her precious little one. My gorgeous friend sings beautifully and also plays the piano; I’m sure her little one will never tire of hearing an angel sing her lullabies. 

The beauty of motherhood is one of my favorite things to capture. It was a joy to do that for this amazing momma, and I love how the pictures came out! I jumped at the chance to have a session with her, and we had such fun playing around with the colors and textures of the fabrics. It surrounded her with a soft atmosphere, perfectly complimenting her warm personality. She’s a wonderful friend to me, an incredible teacher to so many students, and most importantly, an amazing mother to her child. There’s no better example of a strong, confident, and loving woman!

Enjoy!
