Legacy of Love | Greenwich Maternity & Newborn Photographer

 There’s nothing like watching a friend you’ve known for years finally get something they’ve always wanted. That’s what I was able to experience when Peter married Natalia, and when they had their first child together. Peter has been my personal trainer for 8 years (I met him when my daughter was only 1!). I remember years back how excited he was to have kids someday. Most of his clients had children and always talked about them, which only fueled his passion. Looking back, he’s thankful for that time, as he was able to get a lot of free advice and knowledge of the joys and challenges of parenting. 

Peter is originally from Massachusetts, while Natalia is from Mexico. They ended up meeting at a park in Greenwich, and it was love at first sight. When he first told me about Natalia once they started dating, he said that he had met “the one”. I remember being so excited for them! Now, years later, I had the precious joy of doing both their maternity and newborn sessions. 

For the maternity session, I loved finding creative ways to highlight Natalia’s belly bump, and used simple things like a white backdrop and a single cloth to let it have the spotlight. Both Peter and Natalia were glowing when they arrived for the session, so eager and excited to meet their little bundle of joy. They were about equally as happy as they were when they got married, which I witnessed when I photographed their engagement session and their civil ceremony in Greenwich (their wedding was in Mexico). I distinctly remember the big smiles they had during both events.

When their baby boy finally arrived, they were over the moon! The newborn session went like a dream, and we had a lot of fun with a variety of scenes. For one, we swaddled him in lots of fur, making for a soft picture full of cuteness. In another scene, we set him in a basket full of blankets, and went for a grayscale palette to highlight the pops of blue, as well as his precious skin tone. Some of my favorites from the session, though, were when everyone got in the picture. Peter and Natalia were grinning ear to ear, and you could tell that Peter was so proud of his newborn son, while Natalia showered him with love. All I could think of was how precious waiting is when you realize the value of what you will receive.

If you’re in the same boat as Peter and Natalia were, then you need to check out my Belly to Baby Package – it’s the perfect package for you! Contact me here to reserve your session today.

 

Enjoy!

Knit Together With Love | Maternity & Newborn Photography in Connecticut

A wonderful delight of mine is in seeing a family that is tight knit and woven together with love – so try to imagine how elated I was to capture this beautiful family in their maternity and newborn sessions! This wonderful four-piece lives in Westchester, CT, and ended up choosing my Belly to Baby Package, to capture the time before baby enters the world, and directly after they join the family. “We moved to Westchester from Brooklyn, New York, in 2016, after having lived there for 15 years,” Evan, the father, says, “we have two dogs, love to travel, listen to music, and watch tv/movies. My daughter, Madeleine Harper, loves to dance, play dress up, anything Disney, and loves to cook with my wife, Andrea, and I love sports.” Something I love about this family is how much they like spending time with each other, and you can tell they have such a joy for each other in both of their sessions.

For the maternity session, we wanted to get some outdoor shots, with a focus on natural light and more journalistic pictures. We also wanted to get the whole family in the shot, but of course, with a special focus on mom. She wore a lovely pink dress that, when coupled with her natural beauty, made her stand out amongst the sea of green behind her. Dad and Madeleine joined her under the fresh blooms, and Andrea and Madeleine wore a couple floral headbands to match. Their sweet, precious older daughter is loved dearly by her parents: “Madeleine has a sweetness to her, especially in her eyes. She is very excited to be a big sister! We loved to capturing her lovely personality in the session.”

For the newborn session, we welcomed baby Riley into the world on a bed of white fur and gray lace, swaddled in a soft pink blanket. None of that matches the cuteness of Riley, however, and you can especially see it when we laid her on a sea of blue, or in the tiny basket with her little purple flower headband. We wanted to focus on a documentary style as much as possible, and got a few of those shots during the newborn session. Madeleine was so excited to hug and kiss Riley, and we were able to capture this precious moment, as well as the wonderful moment as the whole family gazed down at smiling Riley.

It was a true joy to spend time with this family, let alone help them remember the most special moments of their lives together. They’re knit together with love, and it was amazing watching that love grow over time. That’s the value of the packages that I offer: you’ll never miss those precious moments together. If you would like to capture those moments, please contact me here, and rest easy knowing that you’ll always remember the best things in life, just like this beautiful family will.

 

Enjoy!

Precious moment with baby brother in an outdoor fall session with family of four with gorgeous yellow and orange fall colors for a posed family portrait

Celebrate Your Loved Ones Through Portrait Photography | Greenwich Connecticut Family Photographer

I strive to inspire 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.

Family is one of the most beautiful and wonderful things around. From the first “I do’s”, to the first child, all the way to sending your now-adult kids away to college, family is a journey worth capturing. I think everyone grasps the necessity for professional family photos, but when it comes to taking those pictures annually, it’s often met with excuses rather than excitement. Having professional photos taken requires some real work, and not just in deciding what to wear and where to have the session – they can be an investment as well. But they’re an investment worth making, and here are three reasons why you should have a session every year, and especially now in the fall!

The passage of time – It is in the nature of time to grow us, and it’s important to capture this each year, especially so for young families. Kids grow so quickly, like the colors of fall leaves, and having annual portraits taken will not only be a beautiful way to track their growth, but will also act as a visual journal of the memories of each year. This is important for your children, but also for yourselves as the parents of a rapidly growing family. In a family session, you’ll be able to get in the picture with everybody else, free from worry about any of the details that go into getting the perfect picture. Flow with the constant stream of change, and capture your family along the way.

The milestones you meet – Like the passage of time, the growth of your family means they will meet milestones along the way. Whether it’s the ability to sit up, the first birthday, the first day of school, a high school graduation, or anything in between, it’s important to capture these times in the life of your family. There’s something new each year, and after each one passes you’ll be able to look fondly at your family portraits, and remember the wonderful moments of the year. Photographs are the perfect way to keep a memory alive, and the more that you capture, the more that you can cherish.

The memories you make – The only things in life that truly become more valuable over time are your memories. Life is constantly moving forward, but it is a blessing to look back over all of the wonderful times you’ve lived through, especially as a family. The beauty of a family photo session is that you get to make it how you want it to be, and capture your own unique and beautiful memories to treasure. Maybe you have a favorite family spot where the autumn colors are perfect, and you want to have a picnic-themed session there, or maybe the whole family loves the way the city looks in the fall – no matter what it is, make it special to your own family. If you center your portraits on who your family is rather than making sure everybody is smiling, you’ll get so much more out of them, and make precious memories at the same time.

Those are just three reasons for having annual family portraits taken, and I’m sure you can think of a few more. The preparation and the work that goes into your session is so worth it, because your family is worth the effort. Mark the passage of time, memorialize the milestones along the way, and capture each beautiful memory. You won’t want to miss them! So contact me and book your portraits – it’s the perfect time for a fall family session.

Enjoy!

Brother and Sister ~ Autumn Holiday Photos {Greenwich Child Photographer}

 My son and daughter are regular customers of my photography services, and they must be happy because they keep coming back to have me capture all their special memories! 😉 While I treasure every moment they grace my lens, it’s the annual autumn holiday photo session that is my favorite. The golden light, and orange and red hues of the landscape in our Greenwich neighborhood make a perfect backdrop.    

This year was no exception. The quiet beauty of our surroundings enabled me to capture a few tender moments between siblings, as well as their unique personalities. 

I’m thankful for another successful session with my amazing kids! Here are my favorites from the day. Enjoy!
