Baby's First Year and Beyond

Love from Around the World | Greenwich Newborn Photography


I love to hear the story of how a couple met. Even after hearing hundreds of unique and beautiful stories, I never get tired of listening to the two of them retrace the steps of their love story. It’s amazing to think that, if one of those steps never happened, the two of them might never have met, and I’d never be able to capture their joy as they hold their newborn in their arms. This would be the case for Adriana and Doug if Adriana never moved to the U.S. from Hong Kong, where she was born and raised until coming to Connecticut. Today, Adriana and Doug are married, live in Greenwich, and have a 4-year-old boy, Quin, and a precious newborn boy, Dylan. I had the joy of capturing them all in my studio!

We started the newborn session by carefully placing their little one in a basket, padded with white, furry fabrics and wrapped him in a mint green blankie. We decided on a palette that included greens in this session, and I loved how it accented their gorgeous newborn’s complexion. I loved getting some close-up shots of his cute face, with his button nose and his tiny fingers all snuggled up. Of course, we couldn’t resist getting a picture of his precious little feet. They reminded me of how much of a privilege it is to capture these wonderful moments for parents, and to ‘freeze’ their baby in time. I love giving them the gift of remembering all of the tiny details of their children when they were small!

Some of my favorite moments in this session were the ones with the whole family. Mom, dad, and big brother all got in the shot with baby Dylan, and you could see the excitement and joy barely contained in their smiles. Quin was a bundle of energy, and you could tell that he already loved being a brother! One of the many blessings in this session was grandpa and grandma joining everyone. We weren’t sure if schedules would line up with the grandparents’ visit from Hong Kong, but in the end everything aligned and grandma and grandpa got to hold their newest grandchild in their arms. This precious newborn is loved from around the whole world!
