Making up for Lost Time | Connecticut Newborn Photography

Conception is an amazing thing. Sometimes it can happen when you least expect it, and for others… you have to try for years and years, hoping and praying that this month is the month you’ll find out the news you’ve waited your whole life to hear. Callie and Mike are no strangers to the struggle to conceive. In fact, they have a website and their own instagram to chronicle their struggles with infertility. Their journey through all of the hardships and trials has ended recently with not one, but two bundles of joy being brought into their world! I’m so happy that they chose me to capture these precious first moments of two little people who are so special to them.

Mom says, “My husband and I have been married for nearly 7 years. We’ve always wanted kids, but it was a very difficult journey for us. When we found out we were having twins, Mike said, ‘Well, we’re making up for lost time!’ We made it to our c-section, scheduled at 37 weeks, and are loving every minute of our crazy lives raising twins!” I can’t really put into words the look of joy that these two lovely parents had during their newborn session. They had the biggest smiles on their faces from the moment that they walked into the studio! Their twins, Caden and Fiona, were two gorgeous bundles of fun during the session, and I loved the challenge of presenting both of their unique, budding personalities in their portraits.

We decided on a palette of blues, whites, and creams, to go with the baby’s fair skin, and Fiona’s lovely red hair. I especially loved getting close-up shots of their precious little faces, highlighting their tiny features. We accented Fiona with a simple, white floral headband, and laid the both of them on a bed of soft, furry fabric. The two of them so close together was a sight to see, and I just know that they’ll grow up to be wonderful friends! Some of my favorite shots were of mom and dad, showcasing the bursting joy and pride that they had as new parents.

The love that they have for their Caden and Fiona was a sight to behold. Equipped with battle scars from fighting against infertility, I know Callie and Mike will be the most wonderful parents to their two lovely children. Though they ‘made up for lost time’ and got a family of four right away, I know they wouldn’t have it any other way. Congratulations, you two! I loved capturing these incredibly precious moments in your lives.

Newborn Pride | Connecticut Newborn Photographer

I love meeting first-time parents. Their nervous excitement and their constant smiles give me such joy, from the moment I meet them all the way up to capturing the special moments right after they’ve met their precious little one. It was the same joy meeting Mom, Shivani, and Dad, Nikesh, face-to-face. The first thing I noticed was their infectious excitement, as they eagerly awaited meeting their little girl, Niva. Right away, you could tell this couple was going to pour all of their love and affection out on their tiny baby girl.

Shivani and Nikesh just recently moved to Connecticut from Texas, and have known each other since 9th grade. Since 2010, they’ve been sweethearts, and in 2017 they made the big decision to move away from Texas, where they were born and raised, all the way to the northeast, and they’re excited to explore the area. It was wonderful meeting them and the other big change in their life, Niva, in her newborn session.

I loved the creativity of the parents in this session. We decided on a palette of mauve, white, light pink, and cream, for a soft look to the session. We divided the session into two sets: one, with Niva swaddled up in my signature scene in the studio, and the other with a nature/jungle theme, with Navi dressed up as Nala, from Lion King. Both Shivani and Nickesh love the Lion King, so we knew we had to incorporate it into the session! I loved the creativity here, where we dressed up Niva in the knitted Nala costume from Shivani’s parents, and it made for an adorable moment to capture.

In the first set, we wrapped the little girl up in a light pink blankie, and set her in a basket of white furs, with a light pink backdrop. Her little smile was the cutest thing, and it carried over as we did close-ups of her cute profile, and her tiny toes. We modified the scene a bit by taking away the basket, and replacing it with some gorgeous, pink flowers that encircled Niva.

For the second set, we focused on the backdrop, as we didn’t want to take away from the amazing knit costume. We added flowers to give it a natural look, and laid Niva on a braided purple fabric, to compliment the greenery that surrounded her. The scene quickly became one of my all-time favorites, and it was the perfect way to showcase the pride that Niva’s parents have in their new little girl.

We finished off the session by getting Shivani and Nikesh in front of the camera. You’ll see their gorgeous smiles in the photos below, as they beamed with the realization that this child in their arms was theirs to love and hold forever. Their joy in Niva didn’t stop once the camera was off and the session was over, either. That love and joy that we captured is all you need to be great parents, and Shivani and Nikesh are overflowing with it. The whole session was so fun, and now this adorable family has captured some of the most special moments of their life to cherish forever.
