Family and Maternity Beach Sessions | Greenwich Beach Photography

Family is a beautiful thing. Whether it’s a new family with an expectant mother, or a family of ten, the many special memories that you make together deserve to be captured in a beautiful way.

Part of what makes a session beautiful is the setting. While my studio is one of the best places for newborn photography, the beach is one of the most gorgeous places for family and maternity sessions. Specifically, Tod’s Point (Greenwich Beach), with its deep blue ocean waters offset by the colors of the sandy shore. It makes for one of the most scenic locations for both a family or maternity session.

The photos below speak volumes about how this location can serve you and your family. From special moments with mom and dad, capturing the time before they meet their new baby, to walks with the kids on the beach set against the great blue sky, all the way to posed family portraits where you can take in every detail – this is the place to be if you want to capture those special family memories. The atmosphere of Greenwich Beach evokes the summer feel that we’re chasing all year, and after our session you’ll be able to bring that atmosphere home and display it in your home.

Displaying your professionally captured and edited family or maternity pictures is incredibly simple with my sessions. In either the family or the maternity sessions, an 11″ x 14″ print is automatically included, with additional prints available. All of my sessions always start with a pre-session questionnaire and a planning phone call/email, which also serves as a chance for us to get to know each other before the shoot. You’ll also get styling advice, and off-site hair and makeup is also available for a small fee, which is especially useful for the sometimes unpredictable beach weather. My sessions are designed from the ground up to be both fun and stress-free, so all you have to do is enjoy your time together.

This year, take your family to the beach and make some new memories to enjoy for years to come.

As soon as Greenwich Beach opens, I’ll be booking summer and fall sessions, so don’t hesitate – contact me here to book your session today!

 

Enjoy!

Beauty in Simplicity | Greenwich Newborn Photographer

Happiness looks good on Sandra and Andrew. This lovely couple recently welcomed their gorgeous little girl, Taylor, into the world, so it’s no wonder that they can’t help but smile! Sandra and Andrew’s love story started 9 years ago, when they met through mutual friends, and you can see that that love has only grown over the years.

The couple chose one of my Belly To Baby packages, since this is their firstborn, and they wanted to be sure to capture their sheer joy of anticipating this major life event, as well as celebrate the arrival of baby Taylor. 

For Sandra’s maternity session, we visited Greenwich Beach (aka Tod’s Point), and I loved the shots that we were able to get there. The couple was a little shy about being in front of the camera, but as we spent time together on the coast, everyone was relaxed and the results were stunning! There was a beautiful simplicity to the session; the outfits were minimalist, the colors blended well, and there was a pure joy that radiated throughout every moment. This expecting couple made it a fabulous day.

Then we met Taylor, who is herself a bundle of joy! We wanted to keep the newborn studio session simple and classic, so we focused on natural poses, neutral colors, and made Taylor the center of the session. I love the accent of the white bow on her headband, as it draws the attention up to her overwhelmingly cute face and all of her tiny features. For one scene, we gently laid her on a sea of fabrics, and got a close-up of her profile, especially that little button nose of hers. Sandra asked if we had any seasonal props to use in the session, like stockings or caps to make things more festive. Of course, the studio had a whole selection of props that included this wonderful little Santa knit cap, and I can’t get over how adorable it looks on Taylor!

Seeing Taylor held in her loving parent’s arms is an experience that I cherish, and I loved capturing these special moments for mom and dad. Sandra and Andrew are both so excited to be a family of three now, and I’m honored that they chose me to capture some of the most special memories in their life.

The Journey of Motherhood | Greenwich Maternity Photographer

Words can’t express how full of joy I was watching my dear friend Michal on her journey of motherhood. Thanks to this blog, you also were able to see her first maternity session with me, her first daughter as a newborn, and now her maternity and newborn sessions with her second daughter. I love looking back through all of the pictures, and remembering all the laughs and good times that we had during these sessions. Michal is a lovely soul, a strong single mother, and the best parent that these little girls could have!

Michal is from White Plains, and is a math tutor. She’s also one of the most creative people I know, and has the most lovely singing voice! I can only imagine the wonderful lullabies these girls get to hear while they fall asleep. For Michal’s maternity session this time, we went to Greenwich Beach, and I loved the symbolism there. With the landscape behind her, and the endless ocean in front, it represented all of the ground that she’s already covered, and the limitless future that her and her girls have. The colors were gorgeous; I loved her fuchsia dress with the flowing sleeves blowing in the sea breeze. I especially loved capturing the moments with her and her daughter exploring the beach together, navigating the sandy shores hand in hand.

Her precious little newborn’s studio session turned out wonderful as well. The color scheme that Michal and I worked out involved a gorgeous range of warm pinks, alongside a contrast of deep blues. Among a bed of reds and pinks, this pretty little girl lie fast asleep without a care in the world, and let me pose her to get a great variety of pictures. I loved gazing at her beautiful profile, as well as her tiny fingers and toes. The second scene found her gently laid in a basket, wide awake and surrounded by an ocean of blue with white polka dots. This little girl and her beautiful mamma together was a cuteness overload. The same is true of the picture with both sisters, as older sis smiled as wide as she could to show how happy she is to be an older sibling.

My favorite pictures from the session, though, are with all three together as a whole family. The journey to motherhood wasn’t easy, but I know Michal is loving every second of it. I loved every second of these sessions, and these girls have the best mother around!
