I am absolutely thrilled to share Mateo’s newborn session. His family had a quick drive from Old Greenwich to my studio in Cos Cob.
Before we captured the session itself, proud mom Cindy, shared her vision for Mateo’s portraits. For the baby-only portraits, she chose a muted navy, creating an atmosphere of serenity and charm. This choice extended to the portraits with parents and siblings, where Mateo was delicately wrapped in creamy white.
Setting the Stage
For the newborn session set and props, Cindy expressed a desire for the creation of timeless portraits that would showcase Mateo’s innocence and beauty.
As we prepared for the session, Cindy had specific requests for poses, including the adorable image of Mateo’s tiny feet and toes. Additionally, she envisioned a series of portraits capturing the family’s love, including shots of the siblings looking at the baby, holding him, and timeless family moments.
Inspiration from Previous Sessions:
These inspirations played a crucial role in shaping the narrative of Mateo’s session, ensuring that the family’s unique story was told through the lens, mirroring the love and connection captured in those cherished images.
Creating the Dream Newborn Session:
Cindy’s dream newborn session centered around capturing Mateo surrounded by love, emphasizing the strong bond he already shares with his family. The chosen color palette of blue and neutral tones added a touch of simplicity, allowing Mateo’s natural baby essence to shine through.
The session unfolded in the studio, adorned with carefully selected props and backdrops to complement the chosen color scheme. The aim was to create an atmosphere of tranquility, where every click of the camera captured a moment of love, tenderness, and the adorable charm of newborn Mateo.
The Final Touch: Memories in Print and Album:
With the session beautifully captured, the family had their sights set on preserving these moments in tangible form. Cindy envisioned an album that would chronicle Mateo’s early days and wall prints that would adorn their home with love and warmth.
As we concluded the session, there was a shared sense of satisfaction and anticipation. The images, a blend of simplicity and elegance, would soon find their place in the family’s home, becoming a cherished testament to the love that defines this family.
