Sibling Love | Child Photography in Greenwich

The sibling bond is such a precious thing. No matter where life takes you, you always have the love of your brother or sister to carry you through tough circumstances and to celebrate life’s joys. That’s the bond that I was privileged to photograph when this wonderful trio came into my studio with their loving parents. They are a tight-knit family of five in Riverside, and very much in love with this sweet new addition. Mom and dad first met in New York City about thirteen years ago, and now they have three beautiful children to celebrate. Their family values “kindness, respect and honesty”, and I can certainly see how they exemplify these in their everyday lives. They are patient and caring parents, who never overlook an opportunity to let their children know how loved they are.

 

For this classic and elegant newborn session, I designed the set with pretty neutral tones and soft hues that coordinated with the family’s home decor. The big brother and sister are two and five years old, and they were so helpful and sweet to their brand-new sister. They wanted to help hold her and comfort her, and baby was very obliging. Her full head of hair was just adorable, and mom in particular was relieved that all three children were so happy to be in front of the lens. I felt privileged to be a part of this new season in their lives, and to watch a family fall into their new roles. 

 

Some moms worry that their children won’t cooperate during the session. My friendly advice to all my clients is to “let it go”… and let me take the wheel! I create an atmosphere in my Greenwich studio that is welcoming and cheery, so that children feel at ease. I connect with them on their level before the session begins, and make sure there’s music and fun so that their personalities shine. I love children, and have endless patience for them. No matter how wiggly you may anticipate they will be, I will love every moment! To book, please contact me here!

 

Enjoy!

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!!

Enjoy!newbornmaternitymaternitynewbornnewbornnewbornnewbornnewbornnewbornnewbornnewbornnewbornnewborn

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.

Baby girl posed with red tutu and red flower headband in gorgeous basket in front of twinkle lights for holiday themed newborn portrait session

Meeting a Need | Connecticut Newborn Photographer

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

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

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

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

Enjoy!

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!

A Wonderful Story | Connecticut Baby Photographer

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

 

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

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

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

Enjoy!

Baby Milestone Sessions | CT Baby Photographer

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

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

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

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

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

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

Enjoy!

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!
