There’s something wonderful in the smile of a new parent. As if, with the new arrival of their first precious baby, their smile gets just a little bit bigger than before as their child experiences its first moments of love. Being able to see these smiles in newborn sessions is one of my favorite parts of the job, so it was a joy to work with Jaci and Brian in their newborn session.
Their first child, Nash – the cutie that you’ll see in the photos below – was a perfect angel in the session, and I loved the chance to brainstorm the theme and style of this newborn session with his parents. We decided on a classic color palette of blues and greys, and it was the perfect choice for this precious little one.
My studio in Greenwich, where we had the newborn session, is packed full with props, accessories, fabrics, and backdrops to use in the shoot, and we made good use the grey fabrics to supply a textured backdrop for Nash. We swaddled him up in blue, and his gorgeous skin tone popped out brilliantly against the grey bed of fabrics. I loved taking some close-up shots of Nash’s handsome details. Because babies grow up so quickly, you want to remember how tiny they once were, so I made sure I got that tiny nose, fingers, and toes beautifully captured for Jaci and Brian to remember forever.
Their love story started about 9 years ago, when they met in Newport, Rhode Island while away for the weekend (Jaci was living in Cos Cob, while Brian was living in NYC), and have since tied the knot, being married for 4 years and counting! Their journey together has been only happier since they’ve welcomed Nash into their family, and I was privileged to capture this joy in some shots with Brian and Jaci holding their beloved new member of the family.
Technically, their first child was their maltipoo, and they were right – he’s a great poser! You can see for yourself in the picture with all four of them in the shot, which is one of my favorite pictures to date. You can tell just from Jaci and Brian’s smiles that Nash has been welcomed into a loving and happy home, soon to be filled with the precious memories of his first moments of love.
