Baby's First Year and Beyond

Beauty in Simplicity | Greenwich Newborn Photographer


Happiness looks good on Sandra and Andrew. This lovely couple recently welcomed their gorgeous little girl, Taylor, into the world, so it’s no wonder that they can’t help but smile! Sandra and Andrew’s love story started 9 years ago, when they met through mutual friends, and you can see that that love has only grown over the years.

The couple chose one of my Belly To Baby packages, since this is their firstborn, and they wanted to be sure to capture their sheer joy of anticipating this major life event, as well as celebrate the arrival of baby Taylor. 

For Sandra’s maternity session, we visited Greenwich Beach (aka Tod’s Point), and I loved the shots that we were able to get there. The couple was a little shy about being in front of the camera, but as we spent time together on the coast, everyone was relaxed and the results were stunning! There was a beautiful simplicity to the session; the outfits were minimalist, the colors blended well, and there was a pure joy that radiated throughout every moment. This expecting couple made it a fabulous day.

Then we met Taylor, who is herself a bundle of joy! We wanted to keep the newborn studio session simple and classic, so we focused on natural poses, neutral colors, and made Taylor the center of the session. I love the accent of the white bow on her headband, as it draws the attention up to her overwhelmingly cute face and all of her tiny features. For one scene, we gently laid her on a sea of fabrics, and got a close-up of her profile, especially that little button nose of hers. Sandra asked if we had any seasonal props to use in the session, like stockings or caps to make things more festive. Of course, the studio had a whole selection of props that included this wonderful little Santa knit cap, and I can’t get over how adorable it looks on Taylor!

Seeing Taylor held in her loving parent’s arms is an experience that I cherish, and I loved capturing these special moments for mom and dad. Sandra and Andrew are both so excited to be a family of three now, and I’m honored that they chose me to capture some of the most special memories in their life.

If you want to capture these kind of beautiful moments in your own life, contact me here to book your session today!
