Covid-19 Photography Studio Policies

Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont signed an executive order that requires all “non-essential” businesses to shut down through May 20th. Therefor the studio is closed until May 20th.

Here are the studio policies and procedures moving forward in consideration of the COVID-19 disease.

These guidelines are borrowed from Katie McCarthy at Little Moments photography, who is both a newborn photographer/business owner, as well as a practicing Registered Nurse for the past 9 years.

The information found here is based on CDC recommendations, and adheres to the guidelines of the three-phased approach presented by the federal government.

When deciding to reopen my studio and resuming operations, I will be following the State of Connecticut’s regulations and ensure that my business can meet the appropriate guidelines outlined here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/openingamerica/

At Looking Up Photography, I make client safety my number one priority. My day-to-day studio operations have been adjusted to maintain a safe and sanitary environment. My plans for the first stage of reopening the studio are as follows.

COVID-19 STUDIO POLICIES
• Studio availability is limited to Maternity, Newborn and Baby photography only. Family sessions will take place outdoors, weather permitting and when the parks and beaches are reopened.
• Only the parents and the child being photographed will be allowed in the studio during the session. No extended family members will be permitted. Additionally I ask that siblings not be present during your newborn session. A family member may bring siblings for a family photo at the beginning of the session.
• Family members entering the studio will be asked to participate in a screening process.
• Temperature checks will be conducted upon arrival. Anyone with a temperature of 100 or lower will be allowed to enter the studio.
• I require shoes off at the door.
• I (the Photographer) will wear a cloth mask at all times. Masks will also be available for purchase for parents if they would like to wear one.
• Multiple sanitizer stations will be available throughout studio, as well as a bathroom for hand washing.
• Please bring your own prepackaged snacks/drinks.
• Standard cleaning precautions before and after every individual session will include: cleaning high touch surfaces such as doorknobs, phones, etc., laundering studio fabrics, emptying and sanitizing trash receptacles, cleaning and disinfecting the bathroom.
• Professional cleanings on a weekly basis.

I look forward to inviting you back into the studio and providing you with a safe space to capture your Precious Moments!

Capturing That Special Moment | Greenwich Studio Newborn Photography

It was a special time in the studio with this wonderful family. When I first heard from Taryn and PJ, the excited buzz in their voices was contagious, and I couldn’t wait to meet their first child. And just like Taryn and PJ, as soon as I laid eyes on their baby boy, Paul, I just couldn’t get enough of him! His newborn session in my Greenwich studio was such a fun time, with such lovely people.

Mom and dad chose a wonderful neutral palette, with greys and creams, and it worked out beautifully in Paul’s session. For one of the first scenes, we wrapped him up in a thin grey blankie, complete with sleeping cap. I laid him down on a white pillow, as soft as a cloud, and we got some wonderful shots. Of course, one of those shots was his cute little feet, with his tiny toes frozen by my camera, free from the effects of time.

Mom and dad moved back to Cos Cob after Taryn started teaching art at the elementary school in Greenwich, while her husband works at a consulting company in Stamford. They met all the way over in NYC, at their “favorite watering hole”: Dorrians, on the Upper East Side. This is their first, and the moment they met Paul, they fell head-over-heels for him. He’s the fourth Paul John in his family lineage, carrying the name into a new generation.

For another scene, I laid Paul on a thick, dark grey knit blanket, and his tiny smile showed us how photogenic he already is! We also laid him in a gray-brushed wood box, on top of a gray pillow with a sleeping cap to match. His parents love lacrosse, so we included the lacrosse stick as a special prop. I love getting creative with the parents, as they always have such wonderful ideas, and I love making the session more personal and true to who they are.

Finally, we got everyone in the shot – in their pajamas! They all had matching outfits, and it was one of my favorite moments from the whole session. The pure joy that Taryn and PJ have for their boy was a beautiful thing to witness and capture. The nuzzling of noses and the loving gazes are frozen in time forever, to be forever enjoyed by this gorgeous family. I love that they will always be able to look back on these precious, special moments and remember all of the wonderful memories they made on the way. They’re sure to make plenty of those with their new little one!

Enjoy!

Waiting Patiently | Connecticut Newborn Photography

In my sessions with families, I love to get to know them and what they value. So many families, if not all, value love, honesty, respect, and quality time spent together. Some will go further, valuing the practice of waiting patiently for things. This lovely family goes that extra distance, and has been waiting so patiently for their little one to arrive. I loved capturing the whole family’s joy in their newborn session!

Meet William George, a bundle of love who’s adored by his parents, Todd and Katrina, and his older sister, Victoria. Mom says there was quite a spread between the two siblings, eight years to be exact, and that they’ve been waiting a long time for William. For his session, we decided on a beautiful color scheme, with whites, grays, and blues. William’s parents wanted to keep his studio session classic and simple, and I think with mom and dad’s help I think we got what we wanted!

For one scene, I swaddled William up in a soft, antique blue wrap and laid him on a bed of grey furs and fabrics. With years of experience, I was able to keep William calm and sleepy while I gently posed him for the scene. His handsome profile was the star of the scene, capturing his tiny lips, itty bitty fingers, and kissable toes with my camera. Fast asleep, William enjoyed his debut in front of the lens!

His parents met over 15 years ago at work, and they’ve been smitten ever since. Eight years ago they had their first baby, Victoria, who dearly loves her little brother. She’s quick to share some of her favorite things with her brother, like songs from Disney or Kids Bop, and things that make her laugh like jokes and tickles. She was a dream in the session, carefully holding her sibling close as she smiled wide for me.

As I’m sure you’ve heard me say time and time again, some of my favorite pictures from a session are where the whole family gets in the shot. There’s just an energy filled with love, joy, excitement, and so many great feelings that I look forward to capturing it every time. This lovely family had this energy and more, and they couldn’t help but smile the whole time. It’s no wonder they’re so happy, they’ve been waiting a long time for a family of three to be a family of four.

If you want to capture beautiful moments like these in your own family, contact me here and we’ll get you booked for a session!

Enjoy!

A Family’s Love | Stamford, Connecticut Newborn Photography

I love seeing so many different, loving families come through my studio. They come in all different shapes and sizes, and their excitement at their newborns or their quickly growing toddlers is something that I love to capture. I was blessed to meet Cory and Jenny, 21-month-old Ava, and their precious little man, Aiden. This gorgeous family has showered so much love on Aiden, that it’s no wonder he was smiling in his newborn session!

For Aiden’s session, mom and dad wanted to focus on just this happy little boy as he is. His wonderful personality was surrounded by a palette of grey and blue in one scene, and cream and white in another. I loved swaddling him up tight in blue, and gently laying him on a furry bed of the grey fabrics and textures. We got a close-up view of his tiny little fingers and his handsome profile, and of course, we got a shot of his little toes, forever frozen in time as he grows.

Jenny and Cory, met in New York City through mutual friends, and have been together for about eight years now. They moved to Stamford about three years ago, and both of them work in the city. Some of their favorite things to do are vacations or quiet weekends together as a family. Aiden was warmly welcomed into their family, and I loved getting creative with mom and dad in planning out his session. For another scene, we wanted a rustic feel, so we laid the precious boy on a soft, white pillow. We put a cream and white stocking cap on him, and got the cutest picture of him sleeping on top of it all. We caught a few pictures of him awake, with his gorgeous eyes, and his parents now have a whole set of pictures that keep their baby boy from growing up so quickly.

This beautiful boy comes from a lovely family that I had the pleasure of working with and getting to know. With how much they love this new addition to their family, I know Aiden is in wonderful hands.

If you want to capture this joy in your own life, then contact me here! I can’t wait to hear from you.

Enjoy!

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!

Love from Around the World | Greenwich Newborn Photography

I love to hear the story of how a couple met. Even after hearing hundreds of unique and beautiful stories, I never get tired of listening to the two of them retrace the steps of their love story. It’s amazing to think that, if one of those steps never happened, the two of them might never have met, and I’d never be able to capture their joy as they hold their newborn in their arms. This would be the case for Adriana and Doug if Adriana never moved to the U.S. from Hong Kong, where she was born and raised until coming to Connecticut. Today, Adriana and Doug are married, live in Greenwich, and have a 4-year-old boy, Quin, and a precious newborn boy, Dylan. I had the joy of capturing them all in my studio!

We started the newborn session by carefully placing their little one in a basket, padded with white, furry fabrics and wrapped him in a mint green blankie. We decided on a palette that included greens in this session, and I loved how it accented their gorgeous newborn’s complexion. I loved getting some close-up shots of his cute face, with his button nose and his tiny fingers all snuggled up. Of course, we couldn’t resist getting a picture of his precious little feet. They reminded me of how much of a privilege it is to capture these wonderful moments for parents, and to ‘freeze’ their baby in time. I love giving them the gift of remembering all of the tiny details of their children when they were small!

Some of my favorite moments in this session were the ones with the whole family. Mom, dad, and big brother all got in the shot with baby Dylan, and you could see the excitement and joy barely contained in their smiles. Quin was a bundle of energy, and you could tell that he already loved being a brother! One of the many blessings in this session was grandpa and grandma joining everyone. We weren’t sure if schedules would line up with the grandparents’ visit from Hong Kong, but in the end everything aligned and grandma and grandpa got to hold their newest grandchild in their arms. This precious newborn is loved from around the whole world!

If you want to capture this joy in your own life, then contact me here! I can’t wait to hear from you.

Enjoy!

A Wonderful Wish | Connecticut Maternity Photographer

Parenthood is a wonderful thing. I love to witness the budding joy in the hearts of a new mom and dad, especially when their little one has yet to see the big and beautiful world they’re going to grow up in. This lovely couple has this same joy growing inside of them, and you can see it in their gorgeous smiles. They were originally from Michigan and Maryland, but have since moved to Darien in September of 2015. Mom says, “My husband and I will be celebrating our sixth wedding anniversary this year. We met in the library at law school way back when, and we’ve never looked back.” I love hearing a good love story, and capturing just a little bit of theirs in this maternity session was a true joy of mine.

We started off our session by sending mom to Maria Livesay Salon to get her all done up, which was convenient for us because it’s only five minutes from the studio. I offer this add on service for every session, and it was a wonderful perk to this mother-to-be! From there, we headed out to one of the prettiest areas around, where the all the colorful wonders of fall were on full display. Not to be outdone, this gorgeous couple stole back the show with their overflow of joy. Mom says, “A perfect day for us is one spent entirely outdoors – we love to play tennis, be on the water, and are avid hikers who enjoy discovering all that New England has to offer. My husband works in Greenwich (I work in the city), so this will be convenient for the newborn session!”

We wanted to get some shots with both of them of course, but made sure to get some solo shots of mom and her growing child. They brought along a wonderful book, called ‘Wish’. It’s a cute story; here’s the synopsis: “As an elephant couple embark on a life together, thoughts of children are far away-at first. But as the desire for a child grows, so do unexpected challenges. And it’s only after thwarted plans and bitter disappointment that their deepest wish miraculously comes true.” It’s a wonderful wish, and it’s been this couple’s wish for a while, too. They’re thrilled to become parents, and you can see it written all over their faces.

Enjoy!

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!

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!

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 personalized by you and your baby as you pick out the  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 up to a 60-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 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. 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! It’s the perfect option for your priceless child.

Enjoy!

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!

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
Baby, Newborn

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!

Precious Bond (Stamford Newborn Photographer)

 I love to see a strong family bond. This gorgeous family from Stamford has a beautiful bond, and you can truly see the depth of love they have for their new little girl captured in the photos. A new addition to the family always increases that togetherness, and now with their second child, mom and dad were spilling over with joy in their newborn session! The colors were some of my favorites, from bright pops of blue to the lighter tones that fit so well with the soft pink of her skin. That same softness was showcased in the scene with the pastel furs, and I matched the palette to her gorgeous skin tone.

The color palette, to me, is one of the most important elements in a session. It slips under the radar often, but when it does you know that you’ve done it right. The palette is what holds a scene together, and highlights the baby’s inherent beauty, so I try to keep the colors neutral to draw the attention in the photo to the newborn. In this session, I used some subtle pops of color, along with the flowers or the lace to add texture, and the bold headband for the lighter backdrops. My favorite shots from the session, though, were the ones with mom and dad cradling their precious little one. 

It’s truly a joy of mine to see the incredible love between parents and their children, and it’s my passion to capture it so that each family can display that love in their home, to have with them always. With this lovely family, the bond that they share is on full display, and they can look back fondly on these moments, remembering when their little girl was still so new and small. Soon enough, it’ll be hard to believe that the time has gone by so quickly, and their photos will only become more precious to them as their children grow.

If you’re thinking about having a newborn session, please reach out and contact me with any questions you may have. Booking your session with me will ensure that you’re capturing each fleeting moment in the first weeks of your baby’s life, and preserve the precious bond between you and your child.
  – Enjoy!

Three Sweet Sisters! (Greenwich CT Newborn Photographer)

Whether you are a family who is welcoming their first baby, or the seventh, I believe it is cause for celebration! I photograph small families, big families, and blended families, and everything in me wants to cheer them all on. I sure love children, and feel honored to be able to photograph all of them. I also love the special privilege that occurs when families allow me into their sacred space as they raise their children, and shepherd their little broods. This sweet family is one of my favorites: this was their third beautiful girl, and with two big sisters, she’s in great hands. Not only was she such a calm and adorable baby, the older sisters were loving and caring, and we had so much fun. 

For this shoot, we stuck with a very elegant, neutral palette. It’s one of my favorite looks, because it always looks beautiful and highlights the true stars of the show: baby and family. I even managed to coax a little smile from this baby girl, and enjoyed selecting little lace wraps and headbands to accent her full head of hair! I am sure this lovely group will enjoy raising three girls, and will savor every moment. I hope these images will be displayed in their home and cherished for years to come. 

If you are looking for a newborn photographer in the Greenwich, CT area, I’d love to share what sets my brand apart. I am a professionally recognized and peer-reviewed newborn photographer, which means that your brand new baby is in capable and safe hands. Being experienced means parents can rest assured that safety during posing and transitions is my utmost priority. You can reach out to me today to schedule a newborn shoot, or to ask any questions about what to expect!

This sweet baby boy is only 12 days new and too cute for words.

We didn’t have to stop to feed him once!  Here are a few of my favorites from the session. Enjoy!
