Like Father, Like Son |Connecticut Newborn Photographer

There’s something particularly special about a new family’s first newborn session. The glow in their smile, the shimmer in their eye, and the pure joy they have when they first arrive in the studio is something beautiful! So when Jessica and Dan brought their precious little one in, my heart jumped at the chance to capture this occasion for this wonderful family. These loving, new parents met in college, but started dating after school, in 2011. Five years later, they got married, and just last year they bought their first home. Lots of firsts for this cute couple!

Something that Jessica mentioned first off when we were brainstorming the creative direction of this shoot was that she wanted to incorporate her husband’s guitar in the shoot. We did, and it turned out awesome! Seeing their boy, Emmett, paired with a symbol of something his father loves to do was a great way to represent the family lineage. Mom and dad also chose a gorgeous palette of whites, grays, and light blues for their baby’s session, which will fit perfectly among their farmhouse decor at home. Of course, Emmett is the star of any picture, and that was definitely the case in his newborn session.

We laid this precious little one, swaddled in a light blue knit, in a basket full of the softest blankets you can find. The rustic wood-flooring background was the perfect accent, cracking and fading, to highlight the perfect skin and bright glow of his tiny body. We got a good deal of candid shots, and of course, a couple pictures of Emmett’s forever-kissable toes. Posing him was a breeze, and in one of the photos I gently laid him on a pile of fur on a small, wooden stool, to complete the rustic look. It’s so important that babies are posed correctly, especially newborns. Years of experience and hundreds of hours of training allows me to have confidence posing any baby, and I’m so happy that mom and dad trusted me to pose Emmett!

Some of my favorite shots from this session are the ones with the whole family. The smiles on these lovely, doting parents made my heart skip for joy, and I was blessed to capture the whole thing. As they held Emmett in their arms, holding him close, you could tell that these new parents were ready to take on the world for their baby boy. If you want to capture this same spirit of your own in your newborn’s session, then contact me here!

Enjoy!

Wrapped in Love | Greenwich Newborn Photography

There’s nothing like the smiles on the faces of new parents. You can see this beautiful happiness every time you look at Brian and Caroline, and their precious newborn Keira. Mom and Dad met while Brian was studying in Ireland, just 9 years ago. They were married 6 years later after being friends for 3, and have been head over heels for each other ever since. They said that they love to capture special moments, so it was no wonder that they wanted a newborn session for lovely Keira, including her now-best-friend Millie, their golden retriever.

For one of those special moments, we wrapped Keira up in a lace veil that belongs to her mom. She says, “The day of our wedding was extremely windy and because of it, I don’t have any photographs outside of the church with my cathedral-length veil.” Caroline had the wonderful idea of wrapping Keira in her veil, which I thought was one of the most precious things! To fit it, we focused on a light palette, with whites, creams, and pastel pinks. The star of every scene though was beautiful Keira, wrapped up tight in soft fabrics or her loving parents arms.

We wanted to get some closeup shots of baby’s tiny toes, hands, and lips. It was such a joy to pose little Keira, placing her tiny hands on her face to cradle her chin, and into a sleepy pose. Caroline and I agreed that those are some of the sweetest pictures, and I wanted to make sure to get plenty of them. Mom says, “My husband was instantly drawn into your photos and knowing me – it was the exact style of photographs he had envisioned for our newborn photo shoot.” We had the chance to brainstorm ideas together, and what came out of it was a gorgeous set of pictures.

In a couple of the scenes in the studio we used some white fur to add some texture to the backdrop, and a pink bow to tie everything together. Some of my favorites, though, were the ones with Millie in them. The picture of joy, she beamed over Keira, standing guard while she lay in the soft wicker basket. The best shots were the ones with the whole family, with Mom, Dad, Millie, and precious Keira all together in one special moment.

The grandparents joined in on the fun, so we ended up getting a lot of shots of some one-on-one time with baby. Knowing who raised Brian and Caroline, it’s no wonder that they are already such great parents. Caroline says, “We already feel protective of our little girl and want the absolute best for her. What I love most is knowing that she is half of me and half of the man I love.” You can tell in a moment just how much they love their little girl, and that happiness is what shown through Keira’s wonderful newborn session.

Sleepy summer beach baby girl nestled in soft whites and cool blue hydrangeas and shells for Connecticut newborn session baby portrait

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!

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!

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! ❤

Glowing Mama ~ Spring Baby Girl {Greenwich Maternity Photographer}

I had such a special maternity session with a dear friend. She is expecting a baby girl this spring and she is absolutely glowing!  I set-up in my home studio since the February weather in Greenwich is a wee bit chilly. The bond between mother and daughter shines through in these images!

We used some beautiful ivory lace and burgundy chiffon fabrics. She was grateful I supply a wide variety of gowns and fabrics specifically for maternity portraits. It took the stress out of worrying about what to wear. She was able to relax and enjoy the moment, knowing she looked stunning!

I’m really looking forward to seeing them for their newborn photos in just a few weeks. Here are some of my favorite photos from the session. Enjoy. ❤

Brother and Sister ~ Autumn Holiday Photos {Greenwich Child Photographer}

 My son and daughter are regular customers of my photography services, and they must be happy because they keep coming back to have me capture all their special memories! 😉 While I treasure every moment they grace my lens, it’s the annual autumn holiday photo session that is my favorite. The golden light, and orange and red hues of the landscape in our Greenwich neighborhood make a perfect backdrop.    

This year was no exception. The quiet beauty of our surroundings enabled me to capture a few tender moments between siblings, as well as their unique personalities. 

I’m thankful for another successful session with my amazing kids! Here are my favorites from the day. Enjoy!
