Baby's First Year and Beyond

A Family’s Love | Stamford, Connecticut Newborn Photography


I love seeing so many different, loving families come through my studio. They come in all different shapes and sizes, and their excitement at their newborns or their quickly growing toddlers is something that I love to capture. I was blessed to meet Cory and Jenny, 21-month-old Ava, and their precious little man, Aiden. This gorgeous family has showered so much love on Aiden, that it’s no wonder he was smiling in his newborn session!

For Aiden’s session, mom and dad wanted to focus on just this happy little boy as he is. His wonderful personality was surrounded by a palette of grey and blue in one scene, and cream and white in another. I loved swaddling him up tight in blue, and gently laying him on a furry bed of the grey fabrics and textures. We got a close-up view of his tiny little fingers and his handsome profile, and of course, we got a shot of his little toes, forever frozen in time as he grows.

Jenny and Cory, met in New York City through mutual friends, and have been together for about eight years now. They moved to Stamford about three years ago, and both of them work in the city. Some of their favorite things to do are vacations or quiet weekends together as a family. Aiden was warmly welcomed into their family, and I loved getting creative with mom and dad in planning out his session. For another scene, we wanted a rustic feel, so we laid the precious boy on a soft, white pillow. We put a cream and white stocking cap on him, and got the cutest picture of him sleeping on top of it all. We caught a few pictures of him awake, with his gorgeous eyes, and his parents now have a whole set of pictures that keep their baby boy from growing up so quickly.

This beautiful boy comes from a lovely family that I had the pleasure of working with and getting to know. With how much they love this new addition to their family, I know Aiden is in wonderful hands.

If you want to capture this joy in your own life, then contact me here! I can’t wait to hear from you.
