Baby's First Year and Beyond

Blake’s 2nd Birthday Milestone Session Featuring Lavender


It seems like it was just yesterday that I photographed beautiful Blake’s Newborn Session. And now, here she is at two years old! Happy Birthday to Blake! I love being able to see clients I have photographed before. These clients are especially wonderful, referring other clients to me! I am so excited to share the images from Blake’s second birthday milestone session. These photographs will look darling displayed in the family’s home, and I just know Blake will have a blast seeing new pictures of herself on the walls!

Well, keep scrolling to see my more modern take on traditional toddler portraiture. This studio milestone portrait session even involved a wardrobe change. There is something so clean and timeless about a simple white studio backdrop, and the lovely lavender hues of this session really leant themselves to popping out from the background. I think you’re going to love this gallery! The images from this two year-old milestone session are so beautiful.

A two year-old girl celebrates her birthday with a milestone portrait session captured by Karen Kahn, of Looking Up Photography. The smiling girl wears a simple headband, and a lavender dress reminiscent of Molly Ringwald in Sixteen Candles. Lavender, silver, and translucent balloons pepper the white studio floor.
Two year-old Blake plays peekaboo with her photographer, Karen Kahn. Blake wears a bedazzled yet delicate headband, and a satin lavender party dress with tulle sleeves. Gold glitter sparkles in the foreground of Blake's two year portrait.
A two year-old little girl looks coyly off camera, slightly sticking her tongue out. She is captured sitting in a toddler size gray, overstuffed chair, and is wearing a lavender party dress with plenty of tulle and glitter! Party balloons that match the chair and her dress can be seen faintly in the background of the picture.
Two year-old Blake looks like a boho fairy princess in her ivory lace and lavender tulle gown. A white and purple flower crown adorns her head as she victoriously lifts a white baloon above her head. Silver, clear, and light purple balloons add depth to the photograph, captured at the Looking Up Photography studio in Greenwich, Connecticut.

Well, this little cutie is just the most exquisite toddler. You can tell that she’s extremely comfortable in front of the camera! I adore her relaxed and easy smile, and that really helps when it comes to taking fantastic photographs.

Two year-old Blake holds a small translucent party balloon and an easy smile on her face as she is photographed for her birthday. She wears a purple and white floral crown, and her wispy toddler hair peeks out from underneath it. Her cream lace and purple tulle fancy dress drapes on the floor of Karen Kahn's Greenwich, CT photography studio.
A two year-old little girl with short, chestnut brown hair, is photographed for her second birthday. She wears a delicate headband with a large purple flower on it, and holds a large white balloon in her arms like a playground ball. Her full, purple tulle party dress and lavender balloons bring visual interest to the modern milestone portrait.
A cute little girl is photographed in motion, bare feet swinging from a gray tweed easy chair that's just her size. She smiles off-camera and her light purple party dress and large floral headband really pop, in this studio toddler milestone session photographed by Looking Up Photography, New York's Trusted Baby Photographer.

I don’t know about you, but I love the idea of having a photography studio all to myself for my child. Getting to capture these images without distractions is just so special. When it comes to timeless portraits of our children, we really don’t need all the hullabaloo, do we? We just need the people who matter most to us … and maybe a really pretty studio setting, too.
