Baby's First Year and Beyond

Lucas – Greenwich Studio Family Newborn Session


I’m on quite the productivity kick as we enter into our second year of the novel coronavirus pandemic! It started with going through all of my sessions from over the past year or so, then selecting many of my favorites and preparing them to be blogged here. Of course it’s hard, as a professional photographer, to not feel what’s ongoing around us. That said, I do have hope for this year. I am blessed with the very best clients who’ve made the most of these exceptional times. I continue to look forward to celebrating new life, and lots of really fun sessions!

I’m excited to share one of my first sessions of 2021 so you can share in the joy of this sweet baby with me, and his family! This family is a repeat client; I adore seeing families back in my studio as their numbers grow.

You can also book a session for yourself at the bottom of this post – I made it nice and easy for you!

Knowing that some of my favorite clients aren’t yet ready for photo sessions is pretty tough. What a different feeling it is to know just how different the world will continue to be, for now. In some ways, the world has become almost unrecognizable. For those clients, though, we’re in communication with each other. We know that when the time is right for them, our sessions together will be even more special than before!

Everyone has to do what’s best for them and their families, and even though I’m not able to photograph some clients right now, I am still so excited to share the sessions I am photographing. This studio space has become a wonderful place for me to make growing families feel special, and welcomed, despite current circumstances.

My favorite thing about this session is the absolutely palpable love and pride. I’m sure you’ve been seeing on social media that some creatives are afraid to share their work right now. As for me, I want to acknowledge and love on my clients, who have allowed my livelihood to continue on. This session does just that, for me. The way big sister Lily smiles, the way mom beams with happiness, and the warmth and care all over dad’s face. I think we can all use a little more of this right now!

You can contact me below to celebrate your own family at any stage of life. Keep on keeping on, my friends!
