Another client pregnancy has gone by, and #smbc (that’s Single Mom By Choice) Ashley has welcomed Bernard into the world! We have celebrated him and his mother with a maternity session, and now we have captured his delightful first days of life, as well. Even – or maybe especially – during a global pandemic, life finds a way! I’m always open to receiving session ideas from my clients, which was exactly what I got from Ashley, who found Looking Up Photography recommended in a What to Expect group for expecting Connecticut moms. Ashley’s maternity session took place at Tod’s Point, which served as the perfect setting. That dress, and that hair! Ashley looked like an absolute goddess! Our “Belly” session together made for one happy mama-to-be, and I’m very excited to share a selection from both Belly and “Baby” sessions with you all today.
I’m kicking off this post with this amazing series of images Ashley and I created together! I love how these maternity session photos turned out – especially the tones and dimension added by our location. As I typically shoot indoors, being outside was so much fun – and Ashley got to wear that gorgeous velvet maternity gown! We also had the most exquisite golden hour lighting. Isn’t it fabulous?!
Ashley picked out this adorable suspenders and cap outfit for Bernard! The outfit was absolutely fantastic … especially for a baby boy named Bernie!
What a cute little guy! I was so excited to have Bernard in my Greenwich, Connecticut studio. Especially last year, I was positively craving time in the studio! This boy was wonderfully angelic, and I relished in the opportunity to chat about Ashley’s ideas for our newborn session time together. The colors she chose for Bernard’s studio newborn session were fantastic! And that last pose is always a favorite of mine.
What a look of love! We kept things simple for photos of Ashley and Bernard, and it worked out really well. What can I say? I really believe that simple is better!
