Colorful Comfort | Stamford Newborn Photographer


Newborn sessions are my passion. So when this wonderful family from Stamford, CT got a hold of me to book their session, I was very excited to capture their special joy in my Greenwich, CT studio! Talking with parents Sandy and Julio made it clear how much they loved their new daughter, and how much they loved color. We made sure to surround their precious little one with a beautiful palette in her session.

Their newborn, Dahlia, was born into a joyful and loving family, and has three older siblings: Sofia, Arianna, and Aurelie. We got the whole family in the pictures, and I loved how they all looked together. The center of the show, of course, was little Dahlia, and she was a shining star! We focused on a palette of muted and darker tones, with pops of color to highlight her precious features. We surrounded her with the softest furs, and a bit of lace for some texture, and swaddled her in a warm, pink blanket to complete the setting. It was a scene centered on colorful comfort. Her tiny toes were begging to be captured, and I made sure to get every crease and wrinkle in the shot. 

Another scene was with Dahlia lying in a basket filled with white furs and lace, atop a light pink, patterned floor. I love this shot because of the simplicity of it. I tend to stay away from busyness in newborn scenes, because I want all of the attention on the beautiful little human. In this session, there were so many beautiful humans, though, and I loved capturing all of them! Little Aurelie was so precious as a brand new big sister, already acting as a little mother. I loved her curly hair and her bright smile. She loves to dance, and the session was made even brighter with her dancing around the room!

Mom and dad found me through a Google search, and loved my portfolio so much that they just had to have a session. “We absolutely loved every set design you chose!” Sandy said, “I’m amazed at how you kept Dahlia asleep, comfortable, and happy for the entire shoot! The girls all had a great time.” It was such a joy and pleasure to meet this wonderful family, and to capture everyone in this newborn session. If you’re in the market for a photo shoot, look no further! Contact me here to reserve your session.
