CT Newborn Photographer | Baby Matthew | Danbury, CT

Little Matthew came to me 6 weeks after he was born at Danbury Hospital. He had a difficult start and had to return to NICU shortly after he was born, but he came through fine! He’s so beautiful, and I loved doing this session with him.

Mom told me the story of her little boy’s rough start:
“My sisters and family helped out greatly by taking care of my son Joseph while we were in the hospital having Matthew and then when we had to go back to hospital and stay in NICU for a few days. He has been through a lot his first month here . . . and we are so happy and blessed that he is ok and so thankful for all the love and support we have every day.”

This was a great session. I feel even more privileged to do newborn portraits for babies who have such a difficult beginning. It’s a simple gift, but I always feel so proud to have a gift of my own to give to their parents.

Margie & Patrick, thank you so much for allowing me the great honor of photographing your son and meeting this special boy! I’m so glad to be part of this time in your lives, and I hope to see you all again soon.

Kat - gorgeous photos and what an adorable little guy.

CT Child Photographer | Baby N turns 1! | New Milford, CT

One year ago, this gorgeous man came into the world at Danbury Hospital, and here we are now for his one-year pictures and cake smash! He’s grown so much since his newborn pictures last August (I’m always amazed by how big and grown babies get in a year)!

He was full of smiles and giggles for most of the session—until his cake smash. He did not at all care for the cake smash, which seemed to surprise Mom and Dad! The cake itself was from The Sweet Spot, in downtown New Mildford (http://thesweetspotct.com). I love working with The Sweet Spot. I love the cakes they design for these cake smashes, and I love getting to show them to the parents when the one-year session comes!

Mom told me how her handsome man had grown up this past year:
Best first year! Starting to learn to walk on his own but is quicker on all fours. Loves to babble and carry on conversations with people.

Thanks again for bringing your little man back to see me. He’s grown so much, and I really enjoyed my session with him! I hope to see you all again soon.

Book your Fall Family Outdoor Sessions

It is time to book your family outdoor sessions, now before it is too late! Sessions have been filling up quickly.  There are only a couple weekend spots left and then there are some limited weekday dates. If you wait much longer there won’t be any availability left and I would hate for that to happen.

All sessions will begin a couple hours before sunset in order to take advantage of the glorious light that time of the day. Sessions will be booked on a first come first served basis, and the session fee will be required to reserve your spot. Please email me with your top 2 or 3 date preferences just in case your first option is not available – and also if you have a specific preference of  park.  I will again be shooting at several local parks.

Reserve your session TODAY – dates will go quick!

Two options for Family Fall Sessions:

$150 session fee, purchase collection or a la cartè after session ($300 print minimum)

OR

$900 All Inclusive Family Session, this includes the session fee and your images as a digital download. Family sessions average a minimum of 20 images, up to 50 images.

It has been nearly 6 years since I started my photography business and I still feel blessed to be able to have a profession that I really love – not many people are that lucky. Thank you to each and every one of you for your loyalty, friendship, and business. I know you have many choices and I am so incredibly grateful that you choose me to share your memories with. I adore your families and your children – it means so much!

CT Newborn Photographer | Baby Hailey | New Fairfield, CT

I met Hailey’s mom several years ago when I did newborn pictures for her first daughter, Kaelyn. I always love when clients come back to see me when they have another baby. To me, that’s a sign of a happy client—which makes me happy. She was a little older than the typical newborns that I photograph (I got to see her five weeks after she was born at Danbury Hospital), but no worries, we had a perfect session!

I love, love, love the images of Hailey on the white sleeping. Those setups are my favorite—so simple, sweet, and timeless.

Mom mentioned during the session that being a mom the second time around is so different. I know I can identify with this—and I think most moms of two or more can, too. With your first, everything is so new and sometimes overwhelming (I know there were times I was overwhelmed when I was a new mom). You want everything to be just so! And then, with your second, it all changes. When I had my daughter (our first), I wanted everything to be new and hers. When Jackson came along, I realized that some of those things were not so important to me. With your second, it’s easier to relax.

Mom also told me about the trouble they went through picking out a name:
We had a hard time agreeing on a name. It took us until the day after she was born to name her.:)She’s a great baby, so sweet and a good sleeper!

Thanks, Jill & Tim, for bringing Hailey to me and for trusting me with another gorgeous baby! I loved seeing you again, and I hope to have the pleasure again very soon.

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!
