Front and Center | Greenwich Maternity & Newborn Photography

Not all photographers have the pleasure of following the journey a woman takes through motherhood, but I had the wonderful privilege of capturing a part of Armida’s journey. She and her husband Erik chose one of my Belly to Baby Packages, which includes a maternity session and a newborn session. We had a wonderful time in both sessions, and I’m so excited to finally share their portraits!

For the maternity session, we wanted to go for a contemporary style, with the focus on Mom’s precious baby bump. She wore a lovely white tulle dress, matched with a bright white backdrop. I loved playing with the soft light for this session. Armida gave me creative freedom in both sessions, and it was fun bringing her vision to life. She and Erik looked just gorgeous together, and in each of the pictures made a point of highlighting the precious little girl growing inside. Their little one is front and center, and that carried forward to their newborn session, when little Catalina was born!

We wanted to focus on a natural feel to the newborn session, with a creamy pink and peach palette. We set beautiful Catalina on a bed of furs, and gently added textures in around her to complete the scene. I was able to get a lovely shot of her adorable squishable face against the white fabrics, which made the little floral accessories pop out all the more. She looked so cute lying in the soft wicker basket, with only a bolt of lace draped over her. Erik and Armida wore simple, darker outfits to ensure that Catalina was front and center, but the whole scene was what was most precious. The three together, bound together in love and with the most joyful smiles on their faces, made the session one to remember! It was a privilege to capture a part of their lives together in my Greenwich studio.

No matter if you’re just beginning your journey through motherhood, or if you’re about to welcome your little one into the world, be sure to capture these special memories in a portrait session. These unforgettable moments stay with you forever when preserved in  heirloom keepsake photographs! Contact me here to book your session today!!

Simple and Soft | Connecticut Newborn Photography

When I first met little baby Cameron and his lovely parents, I knew this was going to be a wonderful session! Parents Stephanie and Richardson were bubbling over with excitement during their newborn session, and I was so happy to have the opportunity to capture that feeling in their photos. Before their session, however, we had to decide what colors and style we wanted to use. I love to build sessions around a couple’s vision, and Stephanie and Richardson knew exactly what they wanted. They love a clean, classic look, and chose a white, gray, and mint palette. I set it all up in the studio, and I think it looked better than we could have imagined!

Mom and Dad wanted to focus on candid shots with natural expressions and interactions. I did some light posing, but allowed plenty of room for baby Cameron to do his own thing, and it made for some beautiful pictures. Stephanie envisioned wrapping her precious one in soft blankets and colors, so we laid down some furs and swaddled him in a soft, mint blanket, which wonderfully complimented his gorgeous skin tone. Of course, we got a shot of his scrumptious little feet, and some close-ups to highlight his handsome features. Then we posed Cameron on a simple white fur, still swaddled in the mint green blanket, and I just couldn’t get enough of it!

For the shots with the whole family, we wanted to focus on natural light and soft colors. They were all smiles, and their joy filled up the whole room! I love the pictures where they couldn’t keep their eyes off of their new little family member. Cameron is their first child, and they were over the moon! We wanted to take care to capture these special moments, because they’re gone in a flash. Newborn sessions are especially important because those cute and tiny humans grow up so quickly! A photo session allows you to freeze those moments in time to enjoy them forever. It’s almost as if you had the power to slow the passage of time, even if just for a moment. If you’re expecting a little one soon, be sure to contact me here!

Enjoy!

Colorful Comfort | Stamford Newborn Photographer

Newborn sessions are my passion. So when this wonderful family from Stamford, CT got a hold of me to book their session, I was very excited to capture their special joy in my Greenwich, CT studio! Talking with parents Sandy and Julio made it clear how much they loved their new daughter, and how much they loved color. We made sure to surround their precious little one with a beautiful palette in her session.

Their newborn, Dahlia, was born into a joyful and loving family, and has three older siblings: Sofia, Arianna, and Aurelie. We got the whole family in the pictures, and I loved how they all looked together. The center of the show, of course, was little Dahlia, and she was a shining star! We focused on a palette of muted and darker tones, with pops of color to highlight her precious features. We surrounded her with the softest furs, and a bit of lace for some texture, and swaddled her in a warm, pink blanket to complete the setting. It was a scene centered on colorful comfort. Her tiny toes were begging to be captured, and I made sure to get every crease and wrinkle in the shot. 

Another scene was with Dahlia lying in a basket filled with white furs and lace, atop a light pink, patterned floor. I love this shot because of the simplicity of it. I tend to stay away from busyness in newborn scenes, because I want all of the attention on the beautiful little human. In this session, there were so many beautiful humans, though, and I loved capturing all of them! Little Aurelie was so precious as a brand new big sister, already acting as a little mother. I loved her curly hair and her bright smile. She loves to dance, and the session was made even brighter with her dancing around the room!

Mom and dad found me through a Google search, and loved my portfolio so much that they just had to have a session. “We absolutely loved every set design you chose!” Sandy said, “I’m amazed at how you kept Dahlia asleep, comfortable, and happy for the entire shoot! The girls all had a great time.” It was such a joy and pleasure to meet this wonderful family, and to capture everyone in this newborn session. If you’re in the market for a photo shoot, look no further! Contact me here to reserve your session.

Enjoy!

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.

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!

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!

Sleeping beauty baby girl wearing flower crown and wrapped in neural tones of lace with gray fur for newborn session baby portrait

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!
