Baby's First Year and Beyond

A Studio Newborn Session in Greenwich, Connecticut – Naina


Being a part of life’s biggest moments for families is literally my job. So yes, even when it seemed like the whole world might be closed indefinitely, in the view of the still ongoing situation, I celebrated a birth with this nearby Purchase, New York family! Whether it’s a milestone birthday, first steps, or a family reunion, each celebration is one my clients will cherish forever. This studio newborn session was for a first-time client. Pretty cool, I think!

I truly loved mom Snehi’s clothing suggestions, and I especially loved the fact that Snehi and Nikhil brought along their 5 year-old Boston Terrier/cattle dog mix, Nate. Those of you who have fur babies of your own will get a kick out of this session. I am always so inspired when pets are involved in family sessions. I say well-behaved fur babies are always welcome, and I tell my clients so!

This growing family also wanted to celebrate their Indian culture, and what better way than with a studio newborn session? In India, the name Naina is another name of the goddess Durga Maa, and it also means “beautiful eyes”. This adorable baby girl sure lives up to her name!

Her eyes, like her name, are incredibly beautiful. I LOVED that mom brought along a selection of saris to honor her heritage. In Hindu Dharma, the color red is used for auspicious occasions such as the birth of a child, marriage, and during festivals. The colors of mom’s saris served to accentuate the emotions and pride present throughout this session. I adore these touches!
