Baby's First Year and Beyond

Making up for Lost Time | Connecticut Newborn Photography


Conception is an amazing thing. Sometimes it can happen when you least expect it, and for others… you have to try for years and years, hoping and praying that this month is the month you’ll find out the news you’ve waited your whole life to hear. Callie and Mike are no strangers to the struggle to conceive. In fact, they have a website and their own instagram to chronicle their struggles with infertility. Their journey through all of the hardships and trials has ended recently with not one, but two bundles of joy being brought into their world! I’m so happy that they chose me to capture these precious first moments of two little people who are so special to them.

Mom says, “My husband and I have been married for nearly 7 years. We’ve always wanted kids, but it was a very difficult journey for us. When we found out we were having twins, Mike said, ‘Well, we’re making up for lost time!’ We made it to our c-section, scheduled at 37 weeks, and are loving every minute of our crazy lives raising twins!” I can’t really put into words the look of joy that these two lovely parents had during their newborn session. They had the biggest smiles on their faces from the moment that they walked into the studio! Their twins, Caden and Fiona, were two gorgeous bundles of fun during the session, and I loved the challenge of presenting both of their unique, budding personalities in their portraits.

We decided on a palette of blues, whites, and creams, to go with the baby’s fair skin, and Fiona’s lovely red hair. I especially loved getting close-up shots of their precious little faces, highlighting their tiny features. We accented Fiona with a simple, white floral headband, and laid the both of them on a bed of soft, furry fabric. The two of them so close together was a sight to see, and I just know that they’ll grow up to be wonderful friends! Some of my favorite shots were of mom and dad, showcasing the bursting joy and pride that they had as new parents.

The love that they have for their Caden and Fiona was a sight to behold. Equipped with battle scars from fighting against infertility, I know Callie and Mike will be the most wonderful parents to their two lovely children. Though they ‘made up for lost time’ and got a family of four right away, I know they wouldn’t have it any other way. Congratulations, you two! I loved capturing these incredibly precious moments in your lives.
