Baby Milestone Sessions | CT Baby Photographer

Some of the most precious things on this planet are little humans. A close second are those who take care of these little ones; the joy that’s spread across their faces when they watch their babies “pose” for the camera is one of my favorite sights. That joy is what makes Baby Milestone Sessions so important to have, as it captures that joy and preserves it until long after the child becomes an adult. And as every parent knows, time passes so quickly, and before you know it your kiddo is all grown up. Capturing their milestones as they happen, starting from their first weeks, all the way to their first birthday will, in essence, stop the march of time. Every step along the way is a precious moment begging to be remembered by the whole family, and Baby Milestone Sessions allow you to do just that.

When choosing your Milestone Session, there are multiple packages to choose from, depending on which suits your needs best. If you’re looking for a few wonderful images of your child and some flexibility, then the Mini Session is perfect for you. The session is available for babies between 1 month and 12 months old, which means you can’t really be late to the game. There is also the Baby’s First Year Package, which comes in two styles, to highlight different milestones. The first style includes three 20-minute sessions, held at 4 months, 8 months, and 12 months. Each session, like the Mini Session, includes 6 professionally edited and high-res photos of your little one in the studio, with the option for additional prints to be purchased.

For the second style of First Year Package, the focus is on the milestones your child hits at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 12 months, which means you will get four sessions in the studio, and 6 images from each session. These studio sessions are fantastic, because you have the whole studio wardrobe and all the props available to you to choose from, to surround your baby in its own budding personality. And of course, there’s always the option to upgrade your 12 month session in a First Year plan to a Cake Smash Session, which is perfect for those who want to make their child’s first birthday a “smash!”

I love to get to know each family before the session, so each package includes a pre-session questionnaire and planning via phone or email. This allows me to know exactly who your child is, and how best to represent who they are in their session, as well as help you to be comfortable knowing that your baby is in good hands.

The beauty of your child deserves to be captured, and remembered throughout their whole lives. Those milestones, as precious and as monumental as they are, only last for a brief moment. Often we let these moments slip by unnoticed, but there is a way to stop the march of time.

Simply contact me and book your portraits – it’s the perfect time for a Baby Milestone Session.

Enjoy!

Precious moment with baby brother in an outdoor fall session with family of four with gorgeous yellow and orange fall colors for a posed family portrait

Celebrate Your Loved Ones Through Portrait Photography | Greenwich Connecticut Family Photographer

I strive to inspire my clients to celebrate their loved ones, their children, and their beauty through portrait photography. My dream for them is to have the images we create together become true heirlooms to cherish for generations to come.

Family is one of the most beautiful and wonderful things around. From the first “I do’s”, to the first child, all the way to sending your now-adult kids away to college, family is a journey worth capturing. I think everyone grasps the necessity for professional family photos, but when it comes to taking those pictures annually, it’s often met with excuses rather than excitement. Having professional photos taken requires some real work, and not just in deciding what to wear and where to have the session – they can be an investment as well. But they’re an investment worth making, and here are three reasons why you should have a session every year, and especially now in the fall!

The passage of time – It is in the nature of time to grow us, and it’s important to capture this each year, especially so for young families. Kids grow so quickly, like the colors of fall leaves, and having annual portraits taken will not only be a beautiful way to track their growth, but will also act as a visual journal of the memories of each year. This is important for your children, but also for yourselves as the parents of a rapidly growing family. In a family session, you’ll be able to get in the picture with everybody else, free from worry about any of the details that go into getting the perfect picture. Flow with the constant stream of change, and capture your family along the way.

The milestones you meet – Like the passage of time, the growth of your family means they will meet milestones along the way. Whether it’s the ability to sit up, the first birthday, the first day of school, a high school graduation, or anything in between, it’s important to capture these times in the life of your family. There’s something new each year, and after each one passes you’ll be able to look fondly at your family portraits, and remember the wonderful moments of the year. Photographs are the perfect way to keep a memory alive, and the more that you capture, the more that you can cherish.

The memories you make – The only things in life that truly become more valuable over time are your memories. Life is constantly moving forward, but it is a blessing to look back over all of the wonderful times you’ve lived through, especially as a family. The beauty of a family photo session is that you get to make it how you want it to be, and capture your own unique and beautiful memories to treasure. Maybe you have a favorite family spot where the autumn colors are perfect, and you want to have a picnic-themed session there, or maybe the whole family loves the way the city looks in the fall – no matter what it is, make it special to your own family. If you center your portraits on who your family is rather than making sure everybody is smiling, you’ll get so much more out of them, and make precious memories at the same time.

Those are just three reasons for having annual family portraits taken, and I’m sure you can think of a few more. The preparation and the work that goes into your session is so worth it, because your family is worth the effort. Mark the passage of time, memorialize the milestones along the way, and capture each beautiful memory. You won’t want to miss them! So contact me and book your portraits – it’s the perfect time for a fall family session.

Enjoy!

Expecting mom and dad relaxing in the grass with beautiful yellow fall colors for outdoor posed maternity session

A Wonderful Wish | Connecticut Maternity Photographer

Parenthood is a wonderful thing. I love to witness the budding joy in the hearts of a new mom and dad, especially when their little one has yet to see the big and beautiful world they’re going to grow up in. This lovely couple has this same joy growing inside of them, and you can see it in their gorgeous smiles. They were originally from Michigan and Maryland, but have since moved to Darien in September of 2015. Mom says, “My husband and I will be celebrating our sixth wedding anniversary this year. We met in the library at law school way back when, and we’ve never looked back.” I love hearing a good love story, and capturing just a little bit of theirs in this maternity session was a true joy of mine.

We started off our session by sending mom to Maria Livesay Salon to get her all done up, which was convenient for us because it’s only five minutes from the studio. I offer this add on service for every session, and it was a wonderful perk to this mother-to-be! From there, we headed out to one of the prettiest areas around, where the all the colorful wonders of fall were on full display. Not to be outdone, this gorgeous couple stole back the show with their overflow of joy. Mom says, “A perfect day for us is one spent entirely outdoors – we love to play tennis, be on the water, and are avid hikers who enjoy discovering all that New England has to offer. My husband works in Greenwich (I work in the city), so this will be convenient for the newborn session!”

We wanted to get some shots with both of them of course, but made sure to get some solo shots of mom and her growing child. They brought along a wonderful book, called ‘Wish’. It’s a cute story; here’s the synopsis: “As an elephant couple embark on a life together, thoughts of children are far away-at first. But as the desire for a child grows, so do unexpected challenges. And it’s only after thwarted plans and bitter disappointment that their deepest wish miraculously comes true.” It’s a wonderful wish, and it’s been this couple’s wish for a while, too. They’re thrilled to become parents, and you can see it written all over their faces.

Enjoy!

Girl with long hair and big eyes and festive red dress blowing glitter in the air in whimsical Joyful Gatherings gold set design for fall holiday portrait session

Joyful Gatherings, and The Heart of Fall | New Limited Edition Festive Theme

There is a special beauty to fall and the winter holidays. You can see it in the wonderful colors appearing on the trees, the brisker air in the mornings, and the pumpkin-everything all around us. It’s hard to pin the wonders of the season down, and bottle up its essence, until you strip away everything but its core – its central beauty. We did just that with our new theme, Joyful Gatherings.

This season’s Joyful Gatherings theme has a heart of gold. Think deep, warm, and burnished golds, with creamy whites and rich browns. In the same way that you bundle up to face the ever-colder weather, this theme wraps you and your family in layers of warm colors, with a dash of festive sparkle. 

It all starts in the studio, which will be all set up and ready to capture the soul of both you and your family. As parents, we know that capturing beautiful images of your family is hard, and often you’re lucky if you just get one photo where everybody is smiling. In our studio, we work hard to make sure that you not only get pictures with everybody sporting their smile, but pictures that you’ll love to show off as well. We have a passion for this, and in each of our themes, we make it so that the only thing you have to do is show up, and enjoy the process.

In this festive theme, you’ll have a 20-minute session at our studio in Greenwich, which has been decorated with the heart of this joyous season. You have a lot of session options available to you in this session, so you can personalize it according to what you love, and who you are. Joyful Gatherings is the perfect thing for your holiday cards, holiday gifts, newborn sessions, keepsake albums, cake smash sessions, and even makes for unique baby announcements. No matter where you’re at in life, we’ll meet you there, ready to capture it for you to keep with you forever.

You’ll have full access to the studio props and wardrobe, making for a simple and easy session. After the session, you’ll choose from 8+ professionally edited photos, and take home 4 high res digital images – and of course, there’s always the option to purchase additional images and products. That’s a good thing, because you’ll want to display these pictures all over your house, and even make them a festive centerpiece.

The exclusive Joyful Gatherings theme is only available from now until December 9th, but you still have plenty of time to book your session. Contact us for all the details, pricing, and open dates for booking.

We can’t wait to hear from you, and capture your beautiful family surrounded by one of our favorite themes yet. Come and get festive with us, and book your session today!

 

Enjoy!

Sleepy baby girl posed reclining on arms with lovely hair and flower headband and pouty lips on white blanket for newborn portrait session

Many Blessings | Connecticut Newborn Photographer

With time comes some of the most wonderful blessings. If you’ve been following the blog for a little while, you’ll remember my lovely friend’s maternity session, and her amazing story. Since then, she’s given birth, and her child is every bit as beautiful as we expected, and more so. The many blessings that my gorgeous friend has experienced during the pregnancy pale in comparison to the best blessing of all, that she now holds in her arms. 

For this newborn session, we wanted to focus on a few different scenes, and include everybody in the shoot – even our furry friend! One of the scenes surrounded her gorgeous newborn in soft furs, a pink blanket, and a cute pearled headband to match. I accented with a flower and some textured grays, to round out the palette. I loved capturing the budding personality of this lovely new person, and I especially love the picture we got of those tiny little toes! We also got some photos of this precious little human against a lightly textured, white backdrop, so we could cut out the background and focus on the wonderful beauty of a newborn fast asleep. We brought out the driftwood basket again, and the contrast of using nature to hold a new life was one that I loved to use. But, the most precious photos were of mom and her child together.

It has been amazing to witness this wonderful friend of mine in her motherhood journey. She’s incredibly inspiring, and she teaches me so many things about life and what it means to be a mother. The love that she’s shown towards her child even while she still carried her inside was a beautiful thing to see, and it’s only ever grown since. I love how creative we get together, planning out our sessions and brainstorming the color schemes. I always jump at the chance to work with her artsy mind, and it truly was a blessing to capture this special time with her and her newborn. I can’t wait until the next session we have together!

Enjoy!

Pouty cuteness in gold and pink themes themed cake smash session for one year old milestone baby girl looking adorable in onesie with gray polka dots for 12 month portrait

Exclusive Cake Smash Sessions | Greenwich, CT Photographer

There are very few things as precious as your baby. As I’m sure you well know by now, their first months go by so quickly, so much so that the thought of getting professional pictures taken was stuck at the back of your mind. Now that they’re nearing the one-year milestone, it’s time to celebrate their birthday with a smash, in their very own Cake Smash Session!

Looking Up Photography’s exclusive Cake Smash Sessions are centered on your gorgeous almost-one-year-old baby, and captures all the smiles, giggles, and joy your child experiences as they ‘smash’ their own special cake. The cake is really a giant cupcake, personalized by you and your baby as you pick out the shell color, frosting color, and theme for embellishments (allergy waiver required). I love the themes that parents in the past have picked out, from dapper bowties and mustaches all the way to cowboy-boot headbands and frilly skirts. They’ve all had such great taste, and in your own cake smash session, you’ll have a lot of freedom to showcase your own baby’s budding personality!

Before the big celebration, we’ll have a pre-session questionnaire via phone or email, so we can get a good sense of who your family is, to create the best session for you. Once you book your session, you’ll meet us in the studio with your precious little one, ready to dig in and get into the cutest mess – a mess that you don’t have to clean up! It’s the best of both worlds, where you can watch your baby have oodles of fun smashing up a giant cupcake, without any responsibility for the aftermath. As you can see from the pictures below, there’s a wide range of props available, where you’ll get to choose your favorites for your own unique theme. We’ll have a 30-minute session at our studio in Greenwich, CT, and we’ll pack every minute with fun and joy!

After we’ve captured all of the wonderful moments of your baby’s birthday bash, the photos will be professionally edited, and we’ll narrow it down to the 10 best digital, high-res images, and set up an 11×14 print as well. Of course, there’s always the option to purchase additional prints and print products from your Cake Smash Session, because we guarantee that you won’t be able to get enough of this session!

Each Cake Smash Session is all inclusive, and priced at $500. If you’ve purchased a package already and can’t live without seeing your baby in this unique session, then you can easily upgrade your Mini or Milestone Sessions to a Cake Smash Session for only $150 more! It’s the perfect option for your priceless child.

Enjoy!

Black and white back-lit expecting mommy draped in lovely lace fabric cradling belly for posed maternity portrait session

The Beauty of Motherhood | Maternity Photographer in Connecticut

There’s an infectious joy that a new mother has, and it’s a beautiful thing to witness. This maternity session with my close friend was a joyful and wonderful time, and I’m so glad we were able to capture her happiness in her session! We both have a passion for creativity and love to put our minds together to come up with artsy ideas, which was perfect for this session. We experimented with different fabrics and flower accents, focusing on a soft palette to highlight her warm skin tones and timeless beauty. I arranged for her to get her hair and makeup done at Maria Livesay Salon, which is conveniently located only five minutes from the studio. It’s a service I offer to each of my clients, and it was a wonderful perk to this session!

My lovely friend hails from White Plains, and works as a middle and high school math teacher. She’s an incredibly strong woman, and a single mother, having her child through in vitro fertilization. I’m inspired by her courage everyday, and I have loved seeing her change into someone even more joyful and wonderful throughout her pregnancy. She’s always wanted to be a mother, and is so thrilled for what’s to come! She has a large and loving family near and far who are so excited for her, and can’t wait to meet her precious little one. My gorgeous friend sings beautifully and also plays the piano; I’m sure her little one will never tire of hearing an angel sing her lullabies. 

The beauty of motherhood is one of my favorite things to capture. It was a joy to do that for this amazing momma, and I love how the pictures came out! I jumped at the chance to have a session with her, and we had such fun playing around with the colors and textures of the fabrics. It surrounded her with a soft atmosphere, perfectly complimenting her warm personality. She’s a wonderful friend to me, an incredible teacher to so many students, and most importantly, an amazing mother to her child. There’s no better example of a strong, confident, and loving woman!

Enjoy!

Sleeping beauty baby girl wearing flower crown and wrapped in neural tones of lace with gray fur for newborn session baby portrait

The Bloom of New Life | Connecticut Newborn Photography

There’s a unique beauty in new life. In this session, that beauty was this gorgeous newborn and her loving parents, and the special bond that they have with each other. We had such a wonderful time in this creative newborn session, and I enjoyed getting to know the parents. Mom said, “My husband and I have been together for 9 years, married for 1, and happily expecting our first child together. We recently moved to Greenwich from Westchester, and have spent a lot of time designing our space.” She describes why this has been great for them: “It’s made us work hard together as we make big decisions, and in a sense, it’s been preparing us for parenthood and all the future stresses and choices we’ll be making together. It’s a growing experience, and one that I’m grateful that we get to share!”

I share Mom and Dad’s love for design, and wanted to showcase that creativity in their session. We settled on a set design that focused on vivid pops of color, with natural flowers and leafy props to go with their newborn’s blooming beauty. I loved swaddling baby girl in these soft and subtle fabrics, surrounded by the cuddly textures of the fur. There’s nothing softer than a newborn’s skin, though, and you can see how precious it is just by looking at her tiny toes. We also wanted to capture their little one without any distraction, with a simple white backdrop in my studio. Baby’s personality really popped with the minimal set, and the little bit of pink in the headband was the perfect accent.

No one was happier in this session than Mom and Dad, and it was truly special to see such a deep love for their newborn in their gaze. It was a joy to capture the whole family in this session. While you can never be totally prepared for a child, they are ready for all the stresses and joys of being a new parent. It’s exciting to see the love that they have for each other, and it’s wonderful to know that it will only continue blooming into something more beautiful as they grow together.

Enjoy!

Cozy baby boy swaddled in neural tones of blue with gray fur for newborn session baby portrait

Family Values | Darien, CT Newborn Photographer

Family is one of the most important things in life, and so are the values that we hold dear. This wonderful family from Darien, CT knows this well, and can’t wait to teach their firstborn son all about it! Their little one was so peaceful in his newborn session, napping almost the whole way through. We chose muted tones for our color palette, sticking with grays, whites, dark blue and pops of orange in most of our scenes. I love the monochrome of the gray in one of the scenes, complete with a tiny knit stocking cap to keep his little head cozy. I never tire of being amazed at just how small and cute newborns are, and they get even more precious to me after each session.

The family moved to Connecticut from New York City: “We just moved to Darien a few weeks ago, having lived in NYC since we graduated college.” She said, “We’ve been together for almost six years now, and we’re so excited to welcome our beautiful son to our family!” It was wonderful to have the whole family in the studio, and we got some gorgeous photos of all three of them together, bursting with love for each other. They’re a beautiful family, and you can see just from the pictures alone how strong their bond is. They said, “We were both raised to value family above all else, and look forward to raising our son the same way.” You can see the dedication that they have to each other; their son is in the best of hands.

I had a lot of fun playing around with color in this newborn session, and I love how much the orange added to each scene. In one scene, I included a variety of textures and patterns, with fur, knit and stripes all coming together to make for a cohesive and interesting picture. My favorites, though, have to be the portraits with mom and dad, alone with their new baby. The passion that they have for their son, and the drive that they have to grow him into someone who values the most important things in life was inspiring. It was a joy to spend time with them.

Enjoy!

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.
