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.

 

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!

This Duo Became a Trio (Stamford Newborn Photography)

As I photographed this sweet newborn, I couldn’t help but think about all of the music she’ll hear in her life. Dad and Musician Mom were thrilled to welcome her to the world in January. I was thrilled to welcome them to my studio, where the soft glow captured her toes that will dance and little fingers that might some day play the piano. ❤  So happy for you Family D!! What a lovely session. – Enjoy!

I had the best newborn session last week! Baby sister came just past Christmas to this now family of 4.  They came to my studio from Trumbull and it was so good to meet them.  Baby girl’s parents told me she was a super sleepy baby…and she was! So sweet and cuddly. 🙂 After I swaddled her up, she made the sweetest gestures with her hands. I love when babies do sweet poses naturally! Big sister was a little reluctant to join the fun, but we managed to get a few loving family shots. ❤  Congrats S family!! Loved our time together – Enjoy!

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

What a fabulous newborn session we had yesterday! This family of 4 just welcomed a little sister and she is precious!! It was awesome to spend the morning with them, especially when it’s to snuggle and photograph their baby girl 🙂. They came to my Cos Cob Studio from the Stamford area and it went amazingly well! When we have a toddler it’s always a bit of go with the flow. I was impressed at how well big sister did in her photos! We got some candid family shots and caught her giving a kiss to her baby sister. Sweet baby girl was perfect too. She is so chill and slept all the way through! We used some pretty aquas and whites with thicker textures that will complement baby girl’s nursery. Congrats B family!! Here are several favorites from our time together – Enjoy! ❤

Precious Baby Girl ~ 10 days New {Newborn Photographer Greenwich CT}

 This precious baby girl stole my heart! Only 10 days new, she was a delight to meet. Especially after the wonderful time I had with her mommy at their maternity session. 🙂

She came with her daughter to my home studio in Greenwich, CT for their newborn session. Baby L took a while to fall asleep, which was great because I was able to capture a few images of her beautiful eyes.

Once asleep, she was a dream! She allowed me to dress her in many gorgeous wraps and cute head bands. I think her best color is purple. 🙂

Here are a few of my favorites from the session. Enjoy! ❤
