Baby's First Year and Beyond

The Journey of Motherhood | Greenwich Maternity Photographer


Words can’t express how full of joy I was watching my dear friend Michal on her journey of motherhood. Thanks to this blog, you also were able to see her first maternity session with me, her first daughter as a newborn, and now her maternity and newborn sessions with her second daughter. I love looking back through all of the pictures, and remembering all the laughs and good times that we had during these sessions. Michal is a lovely soul, a strong single mother, and the best parent that these little girls could have!

Michal is from White Plains, and is a math tutor. She’s also one of the most creative people I know, and has the most lovely singing voice! I can only imagine the wonderful lullabies these girls get to hear while they fall asleep. For Michal’s maternity session this time, we went to Greenwich Beach, and I loved the symbolism there. With the landscape behind her, and the endless ocean in front, it represented all of the ground that she’s already covered, and the limitless future that her and her girls have. The colors were gorgeous; I loved her fuchsia dress with the flowing sleeves blowing in the sea breeze. I especially loved capturing the moments with her and her daughter exploring the beach together, navigating the sandy shores hand in hand.

Her precious little newborn’s studio session turned out wonderful as well. The color scheme that Michal and I worked out involved a gorgeous range of warm pinks, alongside a contrast of deep blues. Among a bed of reds and pinks, this pretty little girl lie fast asleep without a care in the world, and let me pose her to get a great variety of pictures. I loved gazing at her beautiful profile, as well as her tiny fingers and toes. The second scene found her gently laid in a basket, wide awake and surrounded by an ocean of blue with white polka dots. This little girl and her beautiful mamma together was a cuteness overload. The same is true of the picture with both sisters, as older sis smiled as wide as she could to show how happy she is to be an older sibling.

My favorite pictures from the session, though, are with all three together as a whole family. The journey to motherhood wasn’t easy, but I know Michal is loving every second of it. I loved every second of these sessions, and these girls have the best mother around!
