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!

CT Newborn Photographer | Baby Lauren, 19 days old | Madison, CT

I was so excited to meet little Lauren 19 days after she was born at Yale New Haven Hospital. I’ve known Lauren’s Mom and Dad for a while: Dad has been friends with my husband since the two of them were kids, and so I got to do the maternity session for Mom and Dad before Lauren was born. It was so fun to see the next phase in their lives unfold!

Lauren was a bit older when we did her session than my usual newborns, but that was because Dad had been away at a shark tournament. (Yep, you read that right!) She did awesome for me, though! It was great to finally get to meet her. We did a softball setup for Mom, and the one in the bucket with the stuffed sharks is for Dad.;-)

This family loves the ocean! Mom and Dad shared with me how they’d picked out Lauren’s name:
“The baby’s name was chosen after Michael’s grandfather’s name: Lawrence. “Lauren” was the female version. The middle name [Merritt] was picked because it is a type of custom sportfishing boat that Michael loves.”

It really was fun to get to work with our friends, and I was touched when Mom said this to me about my work:
“It really comes through how much you enjoy what you do. The whole experience was wonderful to watch and be a part of.”

Thanks, Michael & Tara, for letting me continue to capture these important moments in your lives! Thanks for being so wonderful to work with, and thank you for your friendship. I can’t wait to see all three of you again very soon!

NY Newborn Photographer | Baby Giana, 8 days old | New Rochelle, NY

I was so happy to meet Giana just 8 days after she was born. I’d already met Mom and Dad and big brother Joey when did their maternity session a few weeks before, and we had such a fun time together—so I was excited to see them again!

My favorite image is probably the sibling images with Giana and Joey on the bed. These shots are so simple and beautiful, and really capture the wonder of a growing family.

It was so fun to catch up with this growing little family at this session. Mom says that her labor went well, even after 2.5 months in bed rest, and she and Dad are so excited to welcome their second child into the family!

Adrian and Danielle, it was so fun to get to see you and Joey again—and to meet little Giana for the first time! You have such a wonderful family, and I hope to see all of you again for Giana’s 1-year pictures!
