Gabriela – Belly to Baby Sessions in Greenwich, Connecticut

With the Earth warming up for springtime on this half of the beautiful blue planet we call home, and with Mother’s Day almost here (it’s in 2 weeks, partners!), most of us will still most likely be celebrating at or near home this year. As much as some people may be sad about not being able to go out to a packed restaurant for brunch, I, for one, am still loving this more relaxed time of life with my family. I also knew that, as we get closer to Mother’s Day, I just had to share this Belly to Baby Newborn Session – and previous celebration of a mama to-be. Don’t you adore the Fosse look of that first image?!

We had a special maternity session at the studio, right here in Greenwich, Connecticut. I love how mom dressed for our maternity session together, especially as it gave me the opportunity to do something a bit different. Isn’t her silhouette pure maternity magic? The perfect maternity dress. This was a new Belly to Baby client for 2020/2021! This client was recommended to me by a friend of mine. I always appreciate referrals. And I am honored each and every time a client chooses to work with me for the first time, especially when they choose me to document their pregnancy and their growing family!

Keep scrolling to and check out the contrast of mom’s maternity look to the light and airy Looking Up Photography Belly to Baby studio newborn session. I love that I am able to share with you the very different looks we can capture in the studio. I loved this couple’s bright and relaxed attitude; Gabriela is a fortunate little girl.

Jordyn – A Sweet, Pink Studio Newborn Session

Welcoming a newborn into your family and your home is a wonderful and emotional time. As a professional newborn photographer, I love when I have the opportunity to document these early days as parents get to know their newborn. It was such a pleasure to welcome this family into the Looking Up Photography studio, and to welcome baby Jordyn with a newborn session gifted by Jordyn’s paternal grandmother, Barbara.

Welcoming a new baby can sometimes be daunting for new parents, but not for these two. Nicole and Scott were over the moon every time Jordyn did something cute or funny … or anything at all, really! Photographing a newborn session in my Greenwich, Connecticut photography studio means we can take all the time we need to capture every perfect quality of a new baby.

Another reason I love studio newborn sessions is that they are usually very comfortable and relaxed. Plus, I get to see beautiful babies like Jordyn! A sweet, new baby girl – and I just love her name. I love that I can keep in mind exactly where families will be placing their finished images when I’m capturing sessions in the studio; it allows me to change the accessories, backgrounds, and colors, and gives such a personal touch to the photos.

Baby girl was absolutely wonderful and I love the classic look of this session. With gently posed images, Jordyn is already rocking photoshoots!

This is one of my favorite studio newborn sessions that I’ve photographed, and I am honored I got to meet Jordyn and create a dreamy virtual time capsule for this growing family.

Michael – Spring Celebration – Greenwich Studio Session

We’re just a few weeks into spring, and you didn’t think I’d let it go by without celebrating, did you?! Spring is one of my favorite seasons, by far – a season for all of us to emerge from our winter hibernation and celebrate new life. This year, spring holds even more hope, I think, as humanity continues to come together. When we allow ourselves to hold hands with our neighbors (figuratively, of course), we are stronger, and our world is at its best.

With that in mind, let’s look at this fun newborn session at my Greenwich, Connecticut studio. So, get ready to celebrate!

Location is essential to any newborn session! And it doesn’t get better than my studio. I love it, and I love this new family! Mom was born in Ukraine, and dad was born in Albania. Michael is the first baby born in the United States for both of their families! Beautiful. They also have a Pekingese dog named Mocha, who I’m sure will be a great older sibling to sweet Michael. I love the sparkle in Marina and Bepin’s eyes in their portraits with their son. They make me think that parents can be adorable, too!

Mikey – Cute Newborn Studio Session – Greenwich, Connecticut

Is anyone else looking for fun photo inspiration for newborns, these days? As we can maybe see the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, I think it’s important for professional photographers to prioritize our businesses, and maybe even make things a little extra special for our clients! If you’re a parent, are your kids aware of the history being played out all around them? My children are old enough to understand that they’re living through a time that will someday be in history books! Of course, there have been a lot of questions, and a little bit of stress, too. Being home all the time isn’t always ideal, but we have certainly made the best of it. We’ve even had days that were downright blissful. Still, even though I’m working, getting to the studio for a sweet little newborn session can serve as a little chance for me to ‘take a breath’. Scroll down to see how I created this session for a new client!

 

A little newborn session trick for my fellow professional newborn photographers: keep a fully stocked studio. This adds a terrific, convenient touch to sessions for clients, and helps them be confident that they don’t need to have anything for baby to wear. There are many marketplace-style groups for photographers if you’re on a budget, to start! Make sure you thoroughly wash anything you purchase second-hand, using the appropriate, baby-friendly detergent or cleaning method. You can even create a closet for older siblings if you choose to. Then, be sure your clients know you have this option available, and that you have their new family member(s) covered for your session. Knowing that I have all the swaddles and adorable hats one can imagine is such a perk for my clients.

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 WestportMoms.com. 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.
