Baby's First Year and Beyond

Gabriela – Belly to Baby Sessions in Greenwich, Connecticut


With the Earth warming up for springtime on this half of the beautiful blue planet we call home, and with Mother’s Day almost here (it’s in 2 weeks, partners!), most of us will still most likely be celebrating at or near home this year. As much as some people may be sad about not being able to go out to a packed restaurant for brunch, I, for one, am still loving this more relaxed time of life with my family. I also knew that, as we get closer to Mother’s Day, I just had to share this Belly to Baby Newborn Session – and previous celebration of a mama to-be. Don’t you adore the Fosse look of that first image?!

We had a special maternity session at the studio, right here in Greenwich, Connecticut. I love how mom dressed for our maternity session together, especially as it gave me the opportunity to do something a bit different. Isn’t her silhouette pure maternity magic? The perfect maternity dress. This was a new Belly to Baby client for 2020/2021! This client was recommended to me by a friend of mine. I always appreciate referrals. And I am honored each and every time a client chooses to work with me for the first time, especially when they choose me to document their pregnancy and their growing family!

Keep scrolling to and check out the contrast of mom’s maternity look to the light and airy Looking Up Photography Belly to Baby studio newborn session. I love that I am able to share with you the very different looks we can capture in the studio. I loved this couple’s bright and relaxed attitude; Gabriela is a fortunate little girl.
