Baby's First Year and Beyond

Sweet Baby Milestone + Family Studio Session for Baby Tomas


It’s been a minute since I got to work with a mama who wanted to style a session that included outfit changes. Luckily, I was able to accommodate Gabriela’s request, get her cute family in front of the camera, and I’m SO happy with how it turned out! I’m also thrilled that, after her internet research and website portfolio reviews, Gabriela asked me to make this pretty come to life. Just wait until you see how Gabriela and Dino’s little sweethearts hammed it up in the studio!

Because Tomas has a possible egg allergy, Gabriela and I worked together to come up with an alternative setting for his first birthday portraits. These beautifully styled, oversized typeface letters, and some very minimal white and clear balloons, did the trick perfectly! I’d love to see more of my families go this route for birthdays.

These father-son and mother-son portraits have to be some of my recent favorites! What an amazing series this would be to display on a wall in the family home. Gabriela told me she intends to display these photos in many places in their home, including the master bedroom, living room, and in the kids’ bedrooms! It’s still such an awesome feeling, knowing how many families have my work adorning their walls, memories made and treasured.

While I adore photographing at beautiful outdoor locations in Connecticut, I love when families schedule portrait sessions inside the studio. When I look back through albums, I’m always struck by how classic images taken in the studio are. There aren’t usually many of these photos, which makes them all the more special!

You see … those visits to parks and the beach, etc. – they’re all great. But playing as a family – these are the moments that remind us where the heart is. I love when I can photography my clients in the studio. With that in mind, consider moving your family milestone session into the studio!
