Baby's First Year and Beyond

Precious Bond (Stamford Newborn Photographer)


 I love to see a strong family bond. This gorgeous family from Stamford has a beautiful bond, and you can truly see the depth of love they have for their new little girl captured in the photos. A new addition to the family always increases that togetherness, and now with their second child, mom and dad were spilling over with joy in their newborn session! The colors were some of my favorites, from bright pops of blue to the lighter tones that fit so well with the soft pink of her skin. That same softness was showcased in the scene with the pastel furs, and I matched the palette to her gorgeous skin tone.

The color palette, to me, is one of the most important elements in a session. It slips under the radar often, but when it does you know that you’ve done it right. The palette is what holds a scene together, and highlights the baby’s inherent beauty, so I try to keep the colors neutral to draw the attention in the photo to the newborn. In this session, I used some subtle pops of color, along with the flowers or the lace to add texture, and the bold headband for the lighter backdrops. My favorite shots from the session, though, were the ones with mom and dad cradling their precious little one. 

It’s truly a joy of mine to see the incredible love between parents and their children, and it’s my passion to capture it so that each family can display that love in their home, to have with them always. With this lovely family, the bond that they share is on full display, and they can look back fondly on these moments, remembering when their little girl was still so new and small. Soon enough, it’ll be hard to believe that the time has gone by so quickly, and their photos will only become more precious to them as their children grow.

If you’re thinking about having a newborn session, please reach out and contact me with any questions you may have. Booking your session with me will ensure that you’re capturing each fleeting moment in the first weeks of your baby’s life, and preserve the precious bond between you and your child.
  – Enjoy!
