Cute and Cozy | Connecticut Newborn Photographer


I felt so happy after this newborn session! Working with mom Kristina, her mother Lisa, and her handsome baby Luca was such a fun time in the studio.

Kristina decided to go with a palette of white and denim blue, with some classic props to make for a timeless atmosphere. We wanted the set to feel cozy, and casual, and looking at how peaceful Luca was during the session I think we were able to create just that!

We started by swaddling Luca up in a soft blue fabric, with an airy, knit cap, and we laid him on a bed of white textured fabrics . I loved the contrast that came from the blue on the white, as if Luca were a blue drop in an ocean of white. We wanted to capture every detail of his profile, from the tiny eyelashes, to his button nose, to his teeny tiny toes. These are the kinds of details that will vanish before you know it as the baby gets bigger, so I loved the chance to give them special attention in this session.

I especially loved the pictures with mom, Nana, and Luca in the spotlight. We took some individual shots, with just mom and Luca, or Lisa and Luca, and I loved how those turned out. You can see the wonderful love that Kristina has for her little one, proud to show him off as she can’t help but smile for the camera. You could tell that Lisa was Kristina’s mom just from the loving way that they both cradled Luca, holding him close. We finished off the session by getting the trio in the shot, and it was amazing being able to capture three generations in one image. You wouldn’t have believed that so much love could fit into just one picture!
