Capturing Sweet Moments in Stamford CT: Ezra’s First Year Milestone Sessions


I am thrilled to share the delightful journey I had the privilege of capturing with Ezra during his Milestone Sessions. He and his mom came to my studio from Stamford, CT – a quick drive. It’s been a joyous adventure witnessing his growth and transformation from a tiny 5-month-old baby to a vibrant and curious 1-year-old.

The Baby Milestone Sessions, designed for little ones aged 3 to 12 months, hold a special place in my heart. Ezra’s sessions unfolded in my cozy Greenwich, Connecticut studio, a space dedicated to creating timeless memories of your baby’s most precious moments. From giggles and tummy time to sitting up, crawling, standing, and the celebratory 1st birthday, every milestone is a cherished chapter in the story of your little one’s first year.

Milestone Session Options:

  1. Baby’s First Year Packages: Comprehensive packages capturing multiple milestones throughout the first year.
  2. Family Sessions: Perfect for including the whole family in documenting these special moments.
  3. Cake Smash Sessions: A playful and messy celebration of your baby’s first birthday, complete with a custom-designed set and a cake of your choice.

For Ezra’s milestone sessions, we opted for a simple design with a white backdrop and floor. The soft, neutral tones complemented his changing expressions and allowed the focus to remain on the star of the show – Ezra! From capturing his adorable giggles to those heart-melting moments of grabbing his toes, every detail was immortalized through the lens.

What to Expect During Your Milestone Session:

  1. Pre-session Questionnaire and Planning: Tailoring the session to your preferences and needs.
  2. Styling Advice and Studio Props/Wardrobe: Ensuring your little one looks their absolute best with a touch of studio magic.
  3. Professional Retouching: Elevating the final images to create timeless portraits.

Cake Smash Session Highlights:

  1. Custom Design: Creating a visually delightful backdrop for your little one’s cake smashing escapade.
  2. Styling Advice and Studio Props/Wardrobe: Coordinating themes and colors for a visually stunning experience.
  3. Professional Retouching: Transforming messy moments into beautifully captured memories.

Planning ahead is key to ensuring a stress-free and enjoyable experience. I recommend booking your Milestone Sessions at least 3 months in advance to secure your preferred slot and to allow ample time for planning.

The Session Experience:

Your Milestone Session will last approximately 1 hour, providing a comfortable timeframe for portraits and any breaks needed for both you and your baby. Family portraits are a wonderful addition if you choose the family session option, ensuring a comprehensive representation of this special time.

These sessions are not just about photographs; they’re about creating timeless memories that you’ll treasure for a lifetime.
