Baby's First Year and Beyond

Austin, Aiden, Natalia and Peter


What’s better than getting to photograph a couple’s first child? Getting to photograph their SECOND child, as well! That was the case when I got to photograph this adorable family over the course of Natalia’s pregnancy, both on-location outdoors in our amazing Connecticut scenery, and at the Looking Up Photography studio. For this two-time Belly to Baby package client, I’ve now been lucky enough to photograph many different sessions, each of them featuring amazing clothing selected by Natalia. For our most recent session together, little Aiden looked adorable in his white polo and gray chino shorts.

Belly to Baby: Aiden

Outdoor Maternity Photography in Greenwich, Connecticut

Even at only a few years old, now big brother Aiden is sweet and sensitive. My friend Peter is a fun, energetic, and proud papa. Mom Natalia is a classic beauty. She is full of poise and adores being ‘smothered’ in love by her two (now three!) boys.

Natalia’s gown for her maternity session was inspired by the dress worn by Megan Markle for her second pregnancy. Natalia also provided me with access to her Pinterest board, for inspiration, which was incredibly helpful! Of course, once Aiden saw his mama in her beautiful gown, he thought she was the most beautiful in the world. He has the best expressions! And really, is there anything cuter than a fabulous pregnant mother holding her firstborn? 

I love how our first set of photos truly captured each family member’s personality. There’s loving energy from Peter, a thoughtful, dreamy look from Natalia, and just enough twinkle in Aiden’s eye! My goal as a newborn, maternity, and family photographer is always to capture genuine expressions and real joy. Outdoor sessions like this one allow me to build a unique and fun session based on the things that make a family unique. I had so much fun pulling together this little ‘adventure’ for these amazing souls.

Looking Up Photography Studio Newborn Session

I’ve enjoyed photographing this beautiful family so much. Each session has been different, and filled with inspiration. Being able to include Natalia’s parents in a photo, in the studio, added an extra special element to our photo sessions.
