Baby's First Year and Beyond

Lia – Inspiring Light and Airy Family Newborn Session at the Studio


Many families love to reconnect with each other after the busyness of the holidays, so it’s only natural that photo sessions are popular this time of year. Luckily, I have some amazing inspiration for you, for the dreamiest studio newborn session at my Greenwich, Connecticut studio. If you’re planning your “first quarter” of the new year and want to plan a little treat for yourself and your family, look no further! Take a trip to Greenwich, and let’s make magic together with a beautiful late winter photo session!

Greenwich is about an hour’s drive from New York, and I love visiting “The City” with my family for our special occasions. New York City is full of surprises, and I never cease to be amazed by the fact that there is always charm to be found there, even in such a massive metropolis. As one of the oldest cities in the United States, New York is also full of history (and can be incredibly romantic). I love the cobblestone of Historic Stone Street, which is just a short 15-minute walk from the 9/11 Memorial.

Let’s start with the fact that this family are new clients. I absolutely loved meeting them and capturing their studio family newborn session. Their daughter’s name, Lia, is such a beautiful name. Paired with their sweet son’s name, Ian, and it’s a cute kids names party!

The studio setting is just gorgeous. I love finding inspiration in different nooks and crannies of my studio space, and I never get tired of it. Isn’t it pretty? And speaking of pretty, this family made perfect clothing choices for the light and airy look mom wanted. I especially loved mom’s top – such a great, classic piece!

These two siblings will obviously be close, and young Ian was very well behaved. Well behaved toddlers are a dream to work with!

Wouldn’t you love to have a photo like the one of Ian and Lia, from when you were young?! Anytime is really the perfect time to capture sweet memories. Nothing better than a cuddle with your best friend for life.

The studio is always an amazing session setting; I’d love to work with you here!
