CT Newborn Photographer | Baby Boy Twins | Redding, CT

Twins—what can I say? I really enjoy working with twins because, for me, they are such a fun challenge and change of pace. (It helps that I have a pretty good system that lets me work with them and get lots of sleepy baby images.) I got to meet the twins Ben & Mason 21 days after they were born at Danbury Hospital, and they were both such handsome little guys!

I love so many of their images, but my favorite is the black and white one of them on the gray rug. But I know Mom’s favorite is the one of them with the flags—for obvious reasons: they were born on the 4th of July!

It’s definitely got to be a surprise to find out you’re having twins, and I loved Mom’s story about it:
“When I found out I was having twins, my husband, Brian, was traveling for work, and it took all day to finally reach him by phone to share the news. He was very quiet after I told him we were doubly blessed, and I thought we got disconnected, but he eventually said, ‘WOW.’”

Jeri & Brian, thank you so much for bringing your boys to come see me! They are such handsome little men, and I know they’re lucky to have you two and to have their amazing big sister as well. Your family is so wonderful, and I hope to see you all again soon!

CT Child Photographer | June, 9 months | Southbury, CT

I was so excited to have June for her 9 month milestones! Mom was just so into the session, which made it even more fun for me. Little June was nothing short of adorable—and even her name just makes me happy. I love Junie B (this little girl and the book character!)

June was such a happy little girl. She smiled easily, which I always love, but she also gave me some very sweet, serious looks, too. But this baby was born with photographic grace. Mom told me about their recent trip to New York City:
“June also recently went to New York City and took her first train ride. She also fell asleep in the jerkiest taxi ride ever! She was on her way to a Pampers casting call!”

Mom told me the sweetest stories about June’s new best friend, the family dog:
“June has fallen in love with our dog, Chloe. Every time she sees her, she gets so excited she can’t control herself. Her arms wave, she mutters a bunch of her own words, and she tries to stand at the gate to get a better view of her beloved pet.”

Seriously, this girl is just too adorable for words!

Thanks so much, Annie & John, for bringing this gorgeous girl to me. She is just a treat to photograph. I hope to see you all again soon!

Annie - My June Bug! You did such a great job, Jessica!

CT Newborn Photographer | Baby Natalie | Ridgefield, CT

I got to meet sweet baby Natalie 16 days after she was born at Danbury Hospital. She was an absolute darling, and I had so much fun with her! Mom and Dad were lovely to work with, so we had a great session all the way around.

I love the images of Natalie on the white fabric. Of those, the ones with the little teddy are just too sweet. She is so adorable!

Mom told me about choosing the (absolutely beautiful!) name Natalie:
“We instantly agreed on the name Natalie when we found out we were having a girl, but we didn’t tell anyone until she was born. The first people to know were the nurses and doctors that delivered her.”

She also told me about how they celebrated Natalie’s arrival (and I’m a little bit jealous!):
“We took a ‘babymoon’ to Kennebunkport, Maine, over Memorial Day weekend and ate lots of lobster rolls and had a fantastic time.”

This family definitely knows how to seize life and enjoy it! Natalie, I know you’re so loved and so lucky to have such great parents.

Thanks, Jennifer & Michael, for bringing Natalia to meet me and for letting me share in this amazing part of your lives. I’m so excited for all three of you to take on the world together, and I hope I get to see you again soon!

CT Newborn Photographer | Baby Lucas | Danbury, CT

I was so excited to meet Lucas when he came in just 8 days after he was born at Putnam Hospital. I’d already met Mom and Dad for their maternity session in the spring, and they were so cute that I knew Lucas would be adorable!

I loved all the pictures from this session, but I really adore the macro shots. I think the ones shot on the white are some of my favorites from this session—so cute!

Mom told the most adorable story about how they found out the gender of their baby:
“We had the ultrasound technician write down the gender of our baby and put it in an envelope. We then went to a party supply store and asked them to fill up six black balloons with either pink or blue confetti depending on what was written in the envelope. That night, we had a dinner party for both sets of grandparents. After dinner, everyone grabbed a balloon, and we all popped it at the same time. That way, everyone found out the gender at the same time!”

Samantha & Matthew, thank you so much for letting me into this special part of your lives so I could meet this little guy! He has no idea yet just how loved he is. I can’t wait to see you again soon, when Lucas is 6 or 7 months old—those milestone sessions are so much fun!

Mom & Baby Sessions | CT Family Photographer

Sometimes, an idea for a shoot just grabs, and I can’t get the idea out of my head. But sometimes, I don’t have that type of session lined up, and I just have to ask a great client to help me out!

I realized that mothers so often aren’t in pictures with their kids. Why? Because they’re the ones behind the camera taking the pictures—or they’re the ones wrangling the kids for the photographers! I floated the idea of a “Mom in the picture” shoot past Kristina and Carter, and the best thing happened! This session was so fun and turned out wonderfully!

Would you be interested in a “Mom and baby” or “Mom and kiddo” session down by the river? I’ve already got clothing for mom and baby (and possibly mom and toddler), so there’s no need to go shopping! If you’d be interested in something like this, please contact me here. And if you are interested, please don’t wait to contact me. I’ll be doing these shoots in August only, and based on my busy newborn schedule, I think I can only take 4, maybe 5, of these sessions.

And Kristina & Carter: thank you once again for being my muses for this shoot. This turned out even better than I had imagined!
