The Ultimate, Feminine Studio Newborn Session with Baby Mia!

The summer is full of fun, and lots of babies. I’m sure you’ve been to a few baby showers over the past few months! It seems like baby showers, backyard parties, and extra special get togethers are even more meaningful this year! Well, add another celebration to the list because that’s how I roll. I was recently lucky enough to photograph the ultimate, feminine studio newborn session. I was also able to include this family’s fur baby by including it in this amazing family newborn session. Check out all of the love I captured, below!

Nothing says girly like pink! I pulled out the softest, peachy hue in my collection for this session. My adorable little client was made even more darling with these accessories. And I’ve noticed myself pulling out similar colors a lot this summer, for my clients. Adding in a rosebud headband, a few textured blankets, and a gorgeous basket, is always a good idea, too!

I’m obsessed with that expression.

Newborn Baby Emelia – A Classic Studio Session with the Family Dog!

I have been so excited at the thought of sharing this classic yet fun family studio newborn session! This session is proof that inspiration can come from anywhere (even the family dog). I loved this amazing family and the fact that mom Jackie wanted to include their small dog in the shoot. I always want to celebrate how special my client families are – and that includes fur babies! This shoot showcases whites and neutrals mixed with subtle textures. It’s one of my favorites from this spring! Check out the stunning photos and see how gorgeous newborn sweetheart Emelia is …

Check out this classic setup! I’m happy to say I believe I nailed Jackie’s vision here, with the different white textures. Although I’m always happy to incorporate more props and details, I also love keeping things simple. With all the attention on Emelia, you just know how special she is going to be! I’m also excited to see how Jackie and Christian decide to display these images in their hallways and master bedroom.

On to another beautiful setup! Can you tell I’m happy to oblige a request for textured neutrals in the studio?! This amazing blanket – I’m just obsessed with the subtle patterns it creates and the touch of warmth it gives Emelia’s photos.

How fabulous is this setup? I really love all of the textures, and subtle use of color. And don’t get me started on exquisite Emelia’s pouty little mouth! She is such a terrific subject, which of course helped the pictures from this session turn out especially amazing!

Look at that sibling love and that gorgeous family dog! Emelia’s face adds an extra adorable element.

The Sweetest Studio Newborn Session for Baby Ezra and His Parents

Baby season is a thing, and it’s upon us, friends! I have photographed so many newborns in the past few months! And let’s be honest – there isn’t anything that brings people together quite like an adorable new babe. I’m sharing a recent, spring studio newborn session to show you just some of the amazing memories a studio newborn session at Looking Up Photography can offer you. I have everything from the big, showstopping props, to the sweet and minimal pieces featured in this newborn session. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at all this cuteness!

1120 Looking Up Photography

I love the colors mom Sarah chose for a neutral newborn session. Touches of gray, and shades of blue made for the perfect color scheme. Of course, my natural studio lighting helped me achieve all this gorgeousness. At Sarah’s request, I kept everything very simple, with neutral tones. However, if you do want to do a little more or include a fun theme for your studio newborn session, I love using fun props as well!

My extensive collection of backgrounds, baskets, bowls, crates, blankets, swaddles and wraps provides my photography clients with so many amazing options for their sessions! And if these photos aren’t enough to give you baby fever, I don’t know what is. But seriously, there are so many great pieces in my studio collection that it was hard to choose which ones to use! Let’s take a look …

1116 Looking Up Photography1115 Looking Up Photography

I put together a few little basin and basket scenes with different accessories. This gray setup was perfectly cozy, using a more open knit, super soft baby blanket in a soft gray with a subtle pattern, and the cutest sleepy subject. I put a thick, chunky, woven blanket into a farmhouse style basin and added a softly textured white backdrop. These images will be a perfect fit for almost anywhere in the family’s home!

1112 Looking Up Photography

Driftwood is always a good idea! I love the modern aspect this basket brings to a session – it gives such a fun shape to photos! These layered baby blue blankets are great in it also. As a newborn photographer, you can’t ever have enough baby blankets.

1059 Looking Up Photography

These large knit blankets are soooo soft and soooo cuddly! They are a newborn session must.

1080 Looking Up Photography

Another set of amazing portraits! I fell in love with this baby blue collection the minute I saw it from the back of my camera – beautiful for a boy or girl saying, “I’m new here”. How adorable are these images? I added several layers to complete the look. Such great photos of new baby Ezra I know mom and dad will treasure!

1092 Looking Up Photography

The photo of Ezra’s feet was requested specifically by Sarah and it really did make the most adorable picture. 

0995 Looking Up Photography

If you’re up for photos with baby, I can tell you that moms almost always love how the images of them with their new bundles of joy turn out! Of course, this mama is particularly gorgeous. Would you believe she doesn’t think she’s photogenic? Crazy, I say. Of course, having a professional photographer photograph you is always a great investment.

I can’t think of anything that will put a bigger smile on the faces of grandparents! So stinking cute. And in the future, baby Ezra will be able to look back on these pictures of him with his mom!

1012 Looking Up Photography

More great images are these with dad. Trust me, you’ll want these in the future! From the baby stage to toddlerhood and beyond, children love to look at photos of themselves with their parents. For growing families, pictures are something you can’t ever have enough of! 

1026 Looking Up Photography1033 Looking Up Photography

Now, if you REALLY want to win a “Best Gift” award from a set of new parents, a studio newborn session will do the trick. I mean, isn’t this everything you could want? It’s a beautiful time for any couple.

1020 Looking Up Photography

So many amazing images from this session!

Let’s start things off with this ethereal setup. For this initial set of photos, we went with light, airy, textured sheers and neutrals. Alice’s minimal yet statement-making jewelry added just-right sparkly touches. So incredibly exquisite!

0787 Looking Up Photography

Onto our stunning and AMAZING dark setup! As I said, it was a glorious day in the studio but then we went even more extra! Starting with a black backdrop and a sheer black number – so fabulous. Are you as in love with these portraits as I am? But wait … there’s more …

0693 Looking Up Photography0701 Looking Up Photography

With pops of metallics, Alice’s jewelry pieces were statement-makers. I’m grateful for her including these pieces in her wardrobe!

0707 Looking Up Photography0737 Looking Up Photography

Alice wanted to be sure we photographed some “cool mom” poses, too, and this was such a fun way to celebrate her second pregnancy. Smiles and confidence – I’m all in!

How stinking fantastic is Alice?! I am OBSESSED with this session! It’s so perfect for this celebration of new life, and I love how Alice’s confidence shines through!

Gap-inspired family portrait session in white shirts and blue jeans

Sweet Baby Milestone + Family Studio Session for Baby Tomas

It’s been a minute since I got to work with a mama who wanted to style a session that included outfit changes. Luckily, I was able to accommodate Gabriela’s request, get her cute family in front of the camera, and I’m SO happy with how it turned out! I’m also thrilled that, after her internet research and website portfolio reviews, Gabriela asked me to make this pretty come to life. Just wait until you see how Gabriela and Dino’s little sweethearts hammed it up in the studio!

Because Tomas has a possible egg allergy, Gabriela and I worked together to come up with an alternative setting for his first birthday portraits. These beautifully styled, oversized typeface letters, and some very minimal white and clear balloons, did the trick perfectly! I’d love to see more of my families go this route for birthdays.

0431 Looking Up Photography0744 Looking Up Photography0684 Looking Up Photography

These father-son and mother-son portraits have to be some of my recent favorites! What an amazing series this would be to display on a wall in the family home. Gabriela told me she intends to display these photos in many places in their home, including the master bedroom, living room, and in the kids’ bedrooms! It’s still such an awesome feeling, knowing how many families have my work adorning their walls, memories made and treasured.

0756 Looking Up Photography0851 Looking Up Photography0873 Looking Up Photography0803 Looking Up Photography

While I adore photographing at beautiful outdoor locations in Connecticut, I love when families schedule portrait sessions inside the studio. When I look back through albums, I’m always struck by how classic images taken in the studio are. There aren’t usually many of these photos, which makes them all the more special!

0906 Looking Up Photography1132 Looking Up Photography1222 Looking Up Photography

You see … those visits to parks and the beach, etc. – they’re all great. But playing as a family – these are the moments that remind us where the heart is. I love when I can photography my clients in the studio. With that in mind, consider moving your family milestone session into the studio!

A Sweet Studio Session for Newborn Baby Lucie!

A new month means an adorable studio newborn session! This cuteness is brought to you by my clients Sue and Brian. Sue approached me with a beautiful concept, and I was all in. I couldn’t wait to arrange all the details. It ended up being a darling neutral floral, and simply styled session with the coolest family ever. I can’t get enough of this fun family newborn session. Now, get ready, because baby season is here and you’re going to need all of this inspiration.

It wouldn’t be a Looking Up Photography session without a cute little newborn headband! Along with all of the adorable neutral details and textures. I’m a sucker for the little things and also loved the hues Sue requested for this session.

Onto the next pretty set up! Of course we used the best newborn accessories from my collection. I am in love with this entire arrangement of images in white – aren’t they adorable? I did my thing photographing an amazingly squishy sleepy Lucie. I love how pretty she looked in her headband with that giant white flower! Amazing imagery galore!

I’m loving this gold leaf-filled photo. It’s a new setup for me and so darn fun for all seasons! Gotta love that cutie subject in the center of it, too.

A Beautiful Cottage Style Cake Smash Session at the Studio for Jordyn!

What’s better than a day in the studio with a birthday baby?! I’ll tell you what – almost nothing! Milestone sessions are a favorite pastime of mine (if I’m allowed to call my work a pastime). You’ve gotta love capturing sessions that involve cake, right?! It’s always important to enjoy the little things, no matter where you are in life or your business. I created this special scene with the help of Jordyn’s mama, Nicole, and my girl Sweet Lisa’s Exquisite Cakes, who is always fun to collaborate with. Check out all the pretty below!

I’m so in love with Jordyn’s linen birthday crown! We did a rosette swirl smash cake. Look at all that gorgeous frosting. The cake wouldn’t have been complete without that pretty gold topper! Sweet Lisa’s Exquisite Cakes really went to town and made the most gorgeous pink ombre swirl smash cake. All of this was photographed in my Greenwich, Connecticut photography studio, which was festively adorned with all those balloons. Springy perfection!

An Amazing and Coastal Cool Family Newborn Session at the Studio for Baby Teddy

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of planning and capturing this stupendous family newborn session for a family celebrating the birth of their newest family member, Teddy! We had so much fun celebrating this cutie and the rest of the family as well! Teddy’s mom Lori had a beautiful, coastal inspired vision that we brought to life with understated colors and textures. I’m so excited to FINALLY share this one! Waiting 2 months is hard, my friends!

0359 Looking Up Photography c

Teddy had this slightly serious face all queued up for me. I love when I can capture the little details of an awake newborn for my clients!

0317 Looking Up Photography0313 Looking Up Photography

The session was held at my local studio here in Greenwich. It is such a perfect place for a family newborn session! I have all of my newborn props and textiles at my disposal to make it extra pretty. If I may say so, my blanket collection is to die for!

0290 Looking Up Photography0243 Looking Up Photography

The studio floor was adorned with the softest flokati that perfectly complements the buttery skin of a new baby. It was spring fever with all of the dusty blues, and creamy hues in each image! New life should be a party after all, so we went all out!

A Traditional First Birthday Milestone Session for Baby Luca

This sweet milestone session might just be one of my favorites I’ve shared so far in 2022! I fell in love with the ocean-inspired color scheme right away. The soft pastel tones of cornflower blue and sea foam green are so good together. Plus, you add in the traditional wardrobe choices and you have a dream milestone session! I’ve been dying to share this one and I’m so excited to finally do so. These shoots are always so much fun to put together, and I really work with the most amazing parents and families to bring them to fruition. I love each and every one of my client families to pieces!

Contact me here to book your session today!

Of course, mom Kristina knocked it out of the park with all of the adorable details! I love how she went beyond my expectations with her selections for this studio milestone session. And Luca was adorable, providing me with endless cuteness to capture. I am obsessed with it all, styled so simply. Are you loving these colors like I am?

1082 Looking Up Photography1200 Looking Up Photography1253 Looking Up Photography1343 Looking Up Photography1404 Looking Up Photography

More cute smiles! Did I mention that Kristina works for Melissa & Doug, maker of the train Luca is pulling? I kind of want to gift one of these trains to EVERYONE.

1393 Looking Up Photography1522 Looking Up Photography

To wrap up this studio session with one year-old Luca, this darling setup. I have to admit that it makes my heart go pitter-patter! I feel so inspired by our home state of Connecticut with this color scheme. From Luca’s little outfits, to the classic texture of my studio chair, to those fun balloons in the background. Starting with that, and Luca the superstar, it didn’t take much to make this cuteness come to life.

A Gorgeous, Pastel Cake Smash Session at the Looking Up Photography Studio

We are looking forward to spring, and what better way to do that than with a gorgeous studio cake smash session! Before COVID, I had the pleasure of doing many beautiful cake smash sessions, so I was excited to photograph this fun shoot with baby Reagan. All the balloons, and Reagan’s sweet smiles, gave me such a sense of normalcy as I photographed this session. One of my favorite vendors provided the cake, and you can find her information linked below. I couldn’t have been more honored that Kristen chose me to capture this milestone!

Get ready. These photos are the most darling. Enjoy!

IMG_0552 ta webIMG_0615 ta web

Let’s start off with a gorgeous frock – always a good place to start if you ask me! Kristen is responsible for picking out this beauty. I love both the classic design and the modern and punchy watercolors. We also got Reagan in a crisp white headband, which perfectly accented her cute little features!

Take a closer look at how expressive she is.

We captured so many beautiful photos – it was heaven! The light in my studio never disappoints and helps me bring the pretty. The two different outfits for Reagan were the sweetest ensembles that any baby girl would look incredible in. The balloon color combinations were fun and unique, especially when paired with gold accents. I’m always excited when I get to deck out the studio in such springy colors. I love it all! Such a lovely way to spend a day in the studio. What a dream!
