Baby's First Year and Beyond

Front and Center | Greenwich Maternity & Newborn Photography


Not all photographers have the pleasure of following the journey a woman takes through motherhood, but I had the wonderful privilege of capturing a part of Armida’s journey. She and her husband Erik chose one of my Belly to Baby Packages, which includes a maternity session and a newborn session. We had a wonderful time in both sessions, and I’m so excited to finally share their portraits!

For the maternity session, we wanted to go for a contemporary style, with the focus on Mom’s precious baby bump. She wore a lovely white tulle dress, matched with a bright white backdrop. I loved playing with the soft light for this session. Armida gave me creative freedom in both sessions, and it was fun bringing her vision to life. She and Erik looked just gorgeous together, and in each of the pictures made a point of highlighting the precious little girl growing inside. Their little one is front and center, and that carried forward to their newborn session, when little Catalina was born!

We wanted to focus on a natural feel to the newborn session, with a creamy pink and peach palette. We set beautiful Catalina on a bed of furs, and gently added textures in around her to complete the scene. I was able to get a lovely shot of her adorable squishable face against the white fabrics, which made the little floral accessories pop out all the more. She looked so cute lying in the soft wicker basket, with only a bolt of lace draped over her. Erik and Armida wore simple, darker outfits to ensure that Catalina was front and center, but the whole scene was what was most precious. The three together, bound together in love and with the most joyful smiles on their faces, made the session one to remember! It was a privilege to capture a part of their lives together in my Greenwich studio.

No matter if you’re just beginning your journey through motherhood, or if you’re about to welcome your little one into the world, be sure to capture these special memories in a portrait session. These unforgettable moments stay with you forever when preserved in  heirloom keepsake photographs! Contact me here to book your session today!!
