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!

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!

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!

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!

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 Cozy and Enchanting Studio Family Newborn Session for Max

Believe it or not, I have yet another session from 2021 – with one of my favorite families – that I need to share! Another magical session that has been tucked away in my vault of sessions itching to be shared! I got to spend time with mom Hien, dad Seth, and sweet Kaia once again, this time with baby boy Max in tow! The studio provided a gorgeous setting, and we added some whimsical touches, pops of color, and cute details. It was a beautiful day for beautiful people, and I feel fortunate that Hien again asked me to capture their family!

Gorgeous textures in cream and ivory had to make their way into this session, of course!

Have you ever seen such marvelous little cheeks? And Max was absolutely perfect, allowing me to create these stunning images with ease. I had so much fun creating imagery for his family to add to their walls and share with family.

0375 Looking Up Photography

These new gray newborn accessories! I can’t get enough of them, and they seem to really suit nearly every newborn session! I loved using some rustic wood accents to complement the lush softness of the gray accessories. And of course, I had to use my favorite cream colored flokati, which complements everything perfectly.

0405 Looking Up Photography0417 Looking Up Photography

Kaia was so sweet with her new little brother, and she also was styled in the prettiest outfit. I love the delicacy of her ensemble!

These absolutely terrific family photos you see are some of my recent favorites. Hien got the family in just the right colors to bring some warmth to the images. These colors will always be classic. I’m in love!

0225 Looking Up Photography0263 Looking Up Photography

Look at this pretty family in that backlight! All I know is my families ADORE these images, and they all deserve to have them look like this.

The Sweetest and Prettiest Family Newborn Session for Lucie

Today, it’s a newborn celebration! Baby Lucie was born and I helped her family celebrate with a studio family newborn session, gorgeous greens, fabulous florals, and lots of cuteness! This family was a repeat client (I previously photographed big brother Arlo). The Looking Up Photography studio was the perfect place to have the family gather and celebrate the newborn birthday girl. I had the best time and I was so lucky to have an angel baby to help me bring this session to life. This session will be hard to top in 2022 but I think I can do it!

The organic backdrops and accessories are some of my favorite to date! Adding in gorgeous blush hues was the icing on the cake. Isn’t it all so lovely?

I set the stage with an adorable pink and paired it with other pink beauties. How sweet are these colors? So darn cute. Of course, baby Lucie was just lovely as well!

I was so excited when Lucie’s mom Sophia went with me again for their second bundle of joy, and how adorable are the results of this session?! This family is full of natural beauty, and they made photographing this session such an easy job for me. My photography studio also truly helps me make magic and provides the most amazing light for my clients. Of course, some family portraits were the perfect finishing touch!

Newborn Photography Greenwich – Baby Girl Josephine

Josephine was joined by her mother Kellie, father Kenny, and big brother Bennett for her newborn session. This family newborn session was one to remember. I had previously photographed big brother Bennett when he joined the world. Despite the challenges of the continuing coronavirus pandemic, Kellie valiantly displayed her deep gratitude for the gift of a daughter, Josephine. In other words, a newborn right now? Totally worth it.

I’m happy to have captured this family’s blessing, Josephine, in a way that I hope they will cherish for the rest of their lives.

“May you always know, little one, that you were wished for, longed for, prayed for, and will be forever loved.”

1031 Looking Up Photography

The love parents have for their children is otherworldly. Miraculously, for many of us, that love begins when we first see an ultrasound or hear a heartbeat for the first time. When they’re finally in our arms, our lives are forever changed. Our priorities change to focus on our children and ensuring we provide the best life for them.

1040 Looking Up Photography1050 Looking Up Photography

When we give our first child a sibling, words can’t express how it feels seeing them together. Our love for both of our children instantly grows deeper and stronger. Maybe we learn a few new ways to practice patience, too! If we’re dedicated to doing what’s best for our family, as Kellie and Kenny are, a growing family can strengthen the bond between partners.

1079 Looking Up Photography1095 Looking Up Photography

This sweet face and these delicate hands? Worth the challenges of pregnancy. Motherhood fulfilled, once again.

Parenthood is a gift, and I hope Kellie and Kenny are continuing to enjoy almost every moment of it.

Creating memories for my clients is so important to me. This family portrait session is a celebration of the joy that has been bestowed on them. New life! I hope Josephine will enjoy these photos as she gets older, too.

Newborn Photography Greenwich – Baby Logan

 

Sandra, Logan’s mom, wanted to have a family newborn photography session so that she could look back on these images and cherish this special time forever. In her client survey, she shared with me how she wanted poses similar to and would complement the maternity and newborn imagery from big sister Taylor’s sessions.

As soon as baby Logan entered my studio, I fell completely in love with my business all over again.

 

0660 Looking Up Photography0690 Looking Up Photography

When I first learned that Sandra and her husband Andrew selected me to photograph the newest addition to their family once again, I was totally thrilled. After the challenges I faced as a photographer due to COVID, it was a welcome relief to see a ‘repeat’ family. Sandra made some photo orientation suggestions so that the photographs from this session could complement a family portrait and solo newborn portrait of Taylor already on display on a gallery wall in their home.

0693 Looking Up Photography

Even with the bulk of the coronavirus pandemic hopefully behind us, there’s always an element of nerves when it comes to scheduling sessions these days. But as a professional photographer, it’s so important not to worry and to know that what will be will be. There is always hope in the world and we have to trust in the universe’s timing – not ours. My smallest clients are the most amazing proof of this.

0698 Looking Up Photography0585 Looking Up Photography

Sure enough, this family newborn photography session went off without a hitch. These days, I almost cry with joy every time I have the honor of culling and editing another session. I have also had the best time adding to my newborn photography accessories collection. After all, who doesn’t love seeing a newborn baby in a basket (or a basin, in this case)?! It’s just so much fun.

0615 Looking Up Photography

The moment we placed big sister Taylor and baby brother Logan together, I could feel the rush of love Sandra and Andrew have for their little ones. Having children can be like falling in love all over again as parents’ hearts sync with their new baby. Looking forward, I hope to see this beautiful and healthy family again for some family portraits. Seeing my tiny clients grow up is a dream come true.

Greenwich Newborn Photographer – Baby Zara

Welcome to the world, baby Zara! Such an adorable bundle of joy and so loved by her family. Mom booked me for a newborn session as I had already photographed big sister Quinn last year. In planning for these photos, Nicole shared with me that she especially wanted some photographs in cream, mauve, and pink hues. I was so happy to see some lovely compliments from Nicole about Quinn’s session. Baby Zara and family came to the Looking Up Photography studio in Greenwich, for her newborn session. I could tell right away that Zara was going to be the perfect model, and indeed she was!

1142 Looking Up Photography1138 Looking Up Photography

We got a lovely selection of photos in the lace onesie Nicole purchased especially for this session. Zara’s nursery is decorated in cream and olive colors, and I can just imagine how beautiful these images will look adorning her nursery walls. This makes my heart so happy!

I also loved capturing Zara in this beautiful mauve tutu!

Contact me to document these special, fleeting moments – time goes by so fast. I recommend booking your photo session a few months before baby is born, to ensure I’m available. If baby is already here, I do my best to be available last-minute, so don’t be afraid to reach out!

Cayden – Belly to Baby Session in Greenwich, Connecticut

 

All roads to pregnancy are different. Some are clearly planned, with few bumps … they include detailed road maps. Some “roads” are more like roller coasters, with surprises around each turn, ups and downs. And some are like that road trip your parents forced you to take when you were a teenager. Forced smiles, frustrations, and counting down to that destination. However easy or complicated the journey, once pregnancy passes a certain stage, at least one new life has been created and the lives of everyone involved are forever changed. This lovely couple’s journey was a bit like that road trip with the parents, but it’s clear that the end result is sheer joy. They have a healthy and beautiful little boy and are so at ease as new parents, it’s like they’ve been parenting for years.

Cayden was such a trooper for his session! He slept amazingly.

For Cayden’s session, mom wanted a “cabin-in-the-woods” type feel. I was more than happy to oblige mom’s wishes. My heart almost stopped when I looked at some of these images at the back of the camera, as I knew they’d be absolutely perfect!

I also incorporated some wood elements into the newborn gallery as I felt it would be a great complement! When I brought the imagery into my computer for editing, I wasn’t disappointed at all.

In keeping with mom’s request, I used some gorgeous blues for some of Cayden’s posed imagery. I also loved the shades of green Courtney incorporated into the maternity session. I absolutely love this color of green!

These sessions were such an honor to photograph. Enjoy this small peek into their journey from belly to baby!

Austin, Aiden, Natalia and Peter

What’s better than getting to photograph a couple’s first child? Getting to photograph their SECOND child, as well! That was the case when I got to photograph this adorable family over the course of Natalia’s pregnancy, both on-location outdoors in our amazing Connecticut scenery, and at the Looking Up Photography studio. For this two-time Belly to Baby package client, I’ve now been lucky enough to photograph many different sessions, each of them featuring amazing clothing selected by Natalia. For our most recent session together, little Aiden looked adorable in his white polo and gray chino shorts.

Belly to Baby: Aiden

Outdoor Maternity Photography in Greenwich, Connecticut

Even at only a few years old, now big brother Aiden is sweet and sensitive. My friend Peter is a fun, energetic, and proud papa. Mom Natalia is a classic beauty. She is full of poise and adores being ‘smothered’ in love by her two (now three!) boys.

Natalia’s gown for her maternity session was inspired by the dress worn by Megan Markle for her second pregnancy. Natalia also provided me with access to her Pinterest board, for inspiration, which was incredibly helpful! Of course, once Aiden saw his mama in her beautiful gown, he thought she was the most beautiful in the world. He has the best expressions! And really, is there anything cuter than a fabulous pregnant mother holding her firstborn? 

I love how our first set of photos truly captured each family member’s personality. There’s loving energy from Peter, a thoughtful, dreamy look from Natalia, and just enough twinkle in Aiden’s eye! My goal as a newborn, maternity, and family photographer is always to capture genuine expressions and real joy. Outdoor sessions like this one allow me to build a unique and fun session based on the things that make a family unique. I had so much fun pulling together this little ‘adventure’ for these amazing souls.

Looking Up Photography Studio Newborn Session

I’ve enjoyed photographing this beautiful family so much. Each session has been different, and filled with inspiration. Being able to include Natalia’s parents in a photo, in the studio, added an extra special element to our photo sessions.

From Belly to Baby – Ashley Welcomes Bernie!

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!
