CT Newborn Photographer | Baby Theodore | Guilford, CT

Theodore came to me just 9 days after he was born at Yale New Haven Hospital. He was so sweet and just such a cute little man! I was really excited to get to do his newborn pictures.

This little guy was tricky at first to get settled. I know that Mom and Dad were both worried about settling him down, but with some perseverance and snuggles (and really, who doesn’t love baby snuggles?), we were able to get him to settle in. And we got some beautiful portraits!

I love the overhead images on the blue flokati fur. Those types of shots are great for when I’m working to settle a baby down and get them into a good sleep. Nothing like a good swaddling to help settle them in. I also love the black and white images of him on the green blanket—so sweet!

I know Mom and Dad were just overjoyed to have Theodore in their lives. Mom told me about their journey to getting pregnant and having this little miracle:

Our journey to becoming parents is an . . . interesting one. This was our second time getting pregnant via IVF—the first time occurred a year and a half ago; we got pregnant with twins but sadly lost them at 20 weeks. Heartbreaking and overwhelming as that experience was, we found solace and hope in knowing that “one day” we’d be pregnant again and someday would have our baby. We are thankful every day for Theo—he is our “long awaited” baby and could not be more loved!

Theodore, you are so lucky to have these two as your parents! It’s so obvious that they love you to pieces!

Baby Harper Sneak Peek | CT Newborn Photographer

Today’s little girl Harper was such a cutie with all this beautiful brown hair! She took a little bit to get settled in, but she did and it turned into a great session! I love this image of her, and I just wanted to share a sneak peek to keep her parents and grandparents tied over till the gallery is ready.

NY Newborn Photographer | Baby Lucas | Brooklyn, NY

Adorable Lucas came to me just 2 weeks after he was born at Methodist Hospital, and he was just so adorable!

I really loved doing this session, and Mom had some great stories to tell! She had a fun pregnancy story:

“I realized I was pregnant one night after church while making dinner, spaghetti to be exact. The food just smelled awful for some reason. So I had the kids smell the food thinking I was crazy, and then it hit me: YOU’RE PREGNANT; TAKE THE TEST NOW. I rushed to the bathroom to take the test while dinner was still cooking. As the positive sign popped up, I couldn’t help but quietly freak out! I ran to my husband and threw the test at him, saying, “Guess what? We pregnant.” hahahah. He was napping, so he thought I was crazy and joking. After the shock, we begin planning for the baby to come home.”

Terry & Latrice, thank you so much for letting me be part of your lives and for bringing your wonderful Lucas to come and meet me. I hope to see you all again soon!

Tina - A stunning gallery! I love all the detail &focus! Beautiful Jessica

CT Newborn Photographer | Baby Brody | Monroe, CT

Brody came to see me just 10 days after he was born at Bridgeport Hospital, and boy, is he a cutie! The whole family was just absolutely lovely to work with, and I had so much fun with this session.

It’s hard to pick a favorite from this session—I love so many of Brody’s pictures! If I had to choose, I would say their family image—the black and white on black—but there are so many more!

Mom told me that she had been so lucky to have parents helping out as she gets used to the life of a new mom: My parents have been essential in helping me adjust and handle new motherhood. They offer a level of support that only a parent can do for their own child. When they visit, they insist that I take a break, catch some sleep, or get out of the house. They even take the night feedings so I can sleep through the night. I cannot describe the gratitude I have towards them. Plus, seeing them love their grandchild this much is a joy I can’t put into words.

Jason & Lynda, thank you so much for including me in this special time in your lives. I’m so excited for you as you embark on this new adventure, and I hope to see your little family again soon!

NY Newborn Photographer | Baby Cristiano | New Rochelle, NY

I was so excited to meet little Cristiano just 10 days after he was born at White Plains Hospital. He is such a handsome little boy, and I really loved doing a session with him.

I love how the storyboard of all his faces turned out—so typical of babies, especially newborns ; -) Cristiano’s big brother, Lucas, was also so wonderful for me. Lucas was probably one of the easiest siblings I have had in a long time.

I loved the story Mom told of choosing a name for Cristiano:

Lucas overheard my husband brainstorming names in the kitchen—Cristiano was one of the names. From that day on, he insisted on calling my belly Cristiano. In the end, the name grew on us.

Yep, Lucas is definitely one awesome big brother!

Thanks, Leandro & Abby, for allowing me to be part of this time of expansion in your lives. I loved getting to meet Cristiano and working with Lucas, and I really hope to be see your family again soon!
