Baby's First Year and Beyond

Hope and Beauty | Connecticut Newborn Photography


Every now and again, there are sessions that truly move my heart and leave an impression forever. While every client is special to me, and I always feel honored to capture their memories, some have endured circumstances that make their portraits particularly meaningful to me. This beautiful family is one of those clients. They recently welcomed their brand new baby boy, who is absolutely precious. Tara and Jonathan are a loving and sweet couple, and I enjoyed getting to know them and hearing their story. The pair hails from Norwalk, and after a brief move, they returned to CT for a new beginning after a loss to their family. They shared with me that they lost their sweet daughter unexpectedly, and that is why there is a special bear in some of the images of their son; it’s in honor of that very loved sister. The organization is called Molly Bears, and is doing some powerful work of healing and hope for families who have endured the loss of a child. What a special tribute. 

Their beautiful son is a miracle and so incredibly special for many reasons! It was so touching to get to witness this family’s deep bond and unbreakable hope. Their baby boy arrived in February, much to the delight of his family. They spent many hours decorating his beautifully curated nursery in hues of navy, gray, and white, and were eager to add these to their decor with a canvas or two. The pair requested classic and simple portraits that would accent their home, which is styled in relaxing colors and tones. Tara explained they are “homebodies” who love their space and the memories they have shared there. “We wanted to do newborn photos to have for a lifetime”, she explained, “We chose Looking Up Photography because of the style, and because we wanted someone who could capture the little details”. 

It’s those newborn moments that go by so incredibly fast, and the reason why I absolutely love documenting them. Please contact me here to schedule an appointment with our Greenwich  studio.
