Looking Up Photography – Posed Newborn Accreditation from APNPI

I am so proud to announce that I have received Accreditation from the Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International, in the category of Posed Newborn. My successful submission was chosen along with a select number of others. I am so excited to be placed amongst this elite group of worldwide photographers who are Accredited with APNPI.

Whether you’re a curious parent, or a fellow professional interested in Accreditation, you can find more information here.

More About APNPI

APNPI is a Professional Newborn Photographer’s Association created by newborn photographers specifically for newborn photographers. APNPI formed out of a passion to give professional recognition to Newborn Photographers, and to connect photographers in a safe and respectful place that cultivates the growth of artistry and business acumen amongst its membership.

APNPI also connects parents with Accredited photographers in their area who are educated in newborn safety practices and have passed the rigorous Accreditation process before a panel of live judges. Additionally the site offers parents valuable resources and tips for everything from choosing a photographer to taking better photographs at home.

Newborn Safety

Currently, there are no safety regulations in place for the Newborn Photography industry. Anyone who owns a camera can begin photographing newborns with no training and no knowledge of the unique needs of infants.

APNPI values and puts newborn safety at the forefront of the Newborn Photography profession. For this reason, I want to share some information to help you select a safe photographer and help you identify elements of risk throughout your session.

Safety Checklist

These are some items to keep in mind at your session.

Again, never hesitate to speak up if you feel uncomfortable with something your photographer is doing with your baby.  Whether it’s a safety concern or simply something you personally are uneasy with, either way, you are the one who’s voice is most important!

  • Room temperature – most photographers will heat the room so that baby is not cold
    • Watch for signs of overheating – sweaty neckline, mottled skin, redness in the face, irritability
  • Air quality:
    • Props and blankets should look and smell clean. Musty and mildew smells could indicate the presence of mold growing in a damp, warm studio. If you are concerned about your baby breathing in mold toxins, don’t hesitate to choose to leave with your baby.
    • Essential oils are trendy right now, but can cause allergic reactions and sensitivities. Don’t hesitate to ask your photographer to remove the use of oils if you are uncomfortable with them.
    • Watch out for other environmental allergens such as dust, pets, foods, etc.
  • Tripping hazards
    • Cords should be taped down, and rug grippers should be used with flokati and floor boards. Props should be put away when not in use. Spills should be cleaned up immediately, without delay.
  • Antiques and props
    • watch for splinters and nails
    • Props should be weighted properly.
    • Newborns should never be positioned in or on glass containers or objects that can break or shatter.
  • Posing surfaces should be an adequate size to prevent accidents
    • Wooden backgrounds should be secured to avoid tipping and falls.
    • Sandbags should be used to weight props and light stands.
  • Your newborn must be supported by human hands at ALL TIMES throughout risky poses.
    • This ensures that babies will not be at risk of falls, central cyanosis or positional asphyxiation – three very dangerous scenarios that can result in very seriously injury or even death.
  • In the absence of an assistant, parents, especially mothers, should never be asked to stay away from the babe as is sometimes requested due to the false idea that the smell of mother’s milk will cause the baby to become unsettled. Should the baby show signs of hunger such as the rooting that can occur when they sense and smell their mother, they should be given appropriate time to feed. A satisfied baby will not be unsettled due to the smell of milk and it is better to have an extra set of hands close by than not.
  • Your photographer, assistant or other people present should not be ill.
    • Where and when illness may delay your session beyond an appropriate timeline of around 1-2 weeks, a good photographer should either have an assistant photographer on hand to complete your session or provide referrals to other respected photographers working in a similar style. For posed newborn work, your session is time sensitive and should be completed sometime within the first two to three weeks of life. Unposed, documentary or lifestyle sessions can be completed in longer timelines and rescheduling should be easier with these types of sessions
  • Your photographer does not need to touch, move, or attempt to remove any medical items such as belly button clamps, circumcision gauze, etc.
  • Your baby should never show signs of central cyanosis – the bluish discoloration around the core, lips and tongue. This can be quite a dangerous. According to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Centre, central cyanosis is never normal in the newborn period, and is almost always linked to a lower amount of oxygen in the blood. For this reason, the photographer should be concerned regarding the cause of deoxygenation if central cyanosis is present.
  • Your photographer should have hand sanitizer available.
  • Adequate seating and changing areas should be available and suitable for new moms and those recovering from C-sections.
  • You should have easy access to drinking water.
  • Your photographer should be insured in order to protect you in the event of accidents.

Having images taken of your newborn is a memory you’ll treasure forever. Enjoy your experience, and always have the confidence to speak up if you have any doubts at all!

Family Newborn Session at the Studio – TJ

Raise your hand if you’re looking for a newborn session to inspire you! This may be the second spring we’re having that looks a bit different, this year, but it doesn’t mean our photography inspiration should suffer. Heck, maybe you have a ton of inspiration right now since all your favorite professional photographers are getting caught up on blogging! This family is a favorite recent client and I wanted to incorporate them into my spring blogging. I loved how thorough and open Mom was on her client questionnaire! I appreciate that she mentioned how much she values my talent, time, and work. This fun family newborn session at my studio makes a wonderful addition to my portfolio, and I hope it inspires you!

This time of year brings with it some of my favorite photo sessions at my Greenwich studio, and I thought this family newborn session would be a great addition to my blog! I’ve noticed that sharing recent sessions has a way of making me feel like there aren’t still a million other things going on in the world. So, I love big brother Mack’s proud smiles. This airy session is perfect for spring, and you know this classic look is my favorite.

Lucas – Greenwich Studio Family Newborn Session

I’m on quite the productivity kick as we enter into our second year of the novel coronavirus pandemic! It started with going through all of my sessions from over the past year or so, then selecting many of my favorites and preparing them to be blogged here. Of course it’s hard, as a professional photographer, to not feel what’s ongoing around us. That said, I do have hope for this year. I am blessed with the very best clients who’ve made the most of these exceptional times. I continue to look forward to celebrating new life, and lots of really fun sessions!

I’m excited to share one of my first sessions of 2021 so you can share in the joy of this sweet baby with me, and his family! This family is a repeat client; I adore seeing families back in my studio as their numbers grow.

You can also book a session for yourself at the bottom of this post – I made it nice and easy for you!

Knowing that some of my favorite clients aren’t yet ready for photo sessions is pretty tough. What a different feeling it is to know just how different the world will continue to be, for now. In some ways, the world has become almost unrecognizable. For those clients, though, we’re in communication with each other. We know that when the time is right for them, our sessions together will be even more special than before!

Everyone has to do what’s best for them and their families, and even though I’m not able to photograph some clients right now, I am still so excited to share the sessions I am photographing. This studio space has become a wonderful place for me to make growing families feel special, and welcomed, despite current circumstances.

My favorite thing about this session is the absolutely palpable love and pride. I’m sure you’ve been seeing on social media that some creatives are afraid to share their work right now. As for me, I want to acknowledge and love on my clients, who have allowed my livelihood to continue on. This session does just that, for me. The way big sister Lily smiles, the way mom beams with happiness, and the warmth and care all over dad’s face. I think we can all use a little more of this right now!

You can contact me below to celebrate your own family at any stage of life. Keep on keeping on, my friends!

Dilan – Sweet and Simple Newborn Session in the Studio


What’s simple, sweet, and full of snuggles? This beautiful studio newborn session with baby boy, Dilan.

Upon meeting, he was already perfectly sleepy, allowing mom and dad to follow my every move. The whole family was simply so impressive to me! We got the perfect mix of photos with him sweetly sleeping, as well cuddled up with mom, dad, and their loving miniature golden doodle. 

Did you know that during your studio newborn session with Looking Up Photography, I’ll divide your session into “breakouts”? I’ll change up exactly who is being photographed so we can be sure you receive the perfect blend of images when your final gallery is delivered. During our time together, we’ll get your new arrival front and center, all by themselves – including those tiny details you never want to forget! We’ll also make sure mom and dad have their time to shine. Siblings (or fur siblings) will have their own time in front of the camera. The whole family will be photographed all together as well, of course, too! 

There is nothing better than shooting within the beautiful walls of the studio! Many congratulations to this new family of four (including their precious mini golden doodle)! For an example of what your relaxing studio newborn session with Looking Up Photography might look like, keep scrolling.

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 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!
