Baby's First Year and Beyond

A Special Spring Family Session in Style, with the Sachs


I was so excited and honored when this family was referred to me by the wonderful web reviews from my regular clients! This is an amazing family who wanted to be captured as they are, with their unique personalities and qualities on full display. The vibe of their family ensemble is the epitome of New England classic, laid back yet crisp. Of course, I set out to photograph this family in their own special way! I especially loved big sister Lilah’s dress and how our beautiful Connecticut scenery showcased the Sachs family’s light and airy style. Is it just me, or do they look like they stepped right out of a J. Crew catalog?.

I chose a few of my favorite images to share here; it was so hard to narrow down photographs for this blog post! Keep scrolling to see my favorites. I hope you are inspired!

I fell in love, so to speak, with this gorgeous family the minute I read dad Benjamin’s inquiry. The warm feel of his words, and the clear, overwhelming awe he feels for his family – it was like this family was calling my name!

A New York physician mom, dressed in a classic white shirtdress, holds her infant son in front of her. The baby is also dressed in a crisp white Oxford, with seersucker pants, and the cutest navy Converse sneakers for babies. Behind the pair, a Connecticut tree brings forth delicate pink blooms.A Stamford, Connecticut-based physician couple hold their two children as mom, dad, and big sister smile at the camera. The family of four are photographed in a Connecticut park bursting forth with spring life.A classic childhood portrait of Lilah Sachs, pictured with her hands clasped in front of her, her wispy toddler curls blowing in the breeze. Lilah looks off camera with a whimsical expression, and wears a blue ditsy floral print dress.The Sachs family, of Stamford, Connecticut, are captured with a classic New England park pond behind them. The family of four are photographed in classic blue and white outfits, perfect for spring and the Easter season.

When I asked Benjamin what his goals were for this session, he said he wanted to capture “this particular moment in time”. I believe we achieved that goal beautifully, this spring!

Lilah Sachs is photographed holding her baby brother in her lap. Her baby brother is quite squirmy, but the big sister calmly holds him and smiles at the camera, her cute sandals and feet naturally framing the image. The pair sit on a green, grassy field during springtime in Connecticut.

Capturing the affection this family has for each other is exactly why I do what I do. This session is a showstopper!
