Baby's First Year and Beyond

Their Little World | Greenwich Newborn Photographer


Leah and Patrick are world travelers. In fact, they bonded over their love of travel years ago, before they were married, and ever since then they’ve gone from Connecticut, to Paris, to London, to South Africa, and to Thailand (and many more!). But looking at the joy on their faces as they watch their little girl in her newborn session, I can tell that this girl is their whole little world.

For their precious little one’s session in my Greenwich studio, we wanted to keep it simple and clean, with a color palette that focuses on just a pop of color here and there. That pop came from the blue blanket we wrapped the little one in, as we laid her on a soft, white bed of fabrics. To give it a bit more texture, we added a floral headband to finish the look. Her delicate features were especially highlighted, from her tiny toes and fingers to her little button nose. A few elements, like the simple colors, the intricate posing, and the textures of the fabrics all worked together to showcase this lovely baby girl, and made these pictures perfect!

Leah and Patrick know something about combining different elements together to create the perfect blend. Leah and Patrick said that they are two very different people – Leah being more outgoing, and Patrick more reserved – yet they still make the perfect couple, and the perfect parents for their newborn. You can especially see this in the photos that are one-on-one, or with all three. The pure joy, love, and excitement that radiate from these photos show you that this precious little one is in wonderful hands.

For the rest of her session, we had a few other scenes planned, including a simple scene with the almost-bare baby lying on her tummy, and another where we laid her in a box of gray furs. What was so special about both of these sessions are the different expressions we were able to capture. Her squeezable cheeks peeking out over her tiny hand, her contented smile, and what seemed like a very determined sleeping face all worked together to show you the budding personality that this girl has. In such loving hands, you can only imagine that she will become someone who changes the world that her wonderful parents love to travel.
