There’s Comfort in Family | Greenwich, CT Newborn Photographer


A family is a powerful thing. There’s a bond between them that gives comfort and security, warming the heart when it gets cold. This handsome newborn’s family has this bond, and it was a wonderful thing to witness! Their beautiful baby boy was a dream, and I loved capturing his new and unique personality. Mom and Dad both work together in production for commercials, with film and animation. They’re a creative duo that loves the closeness that comes from doing business together. They’ve been waiting for some time for this baby boy, he being their first child, and were filled with excitement for their first newborn session!

Mom and Dad’s journey to Connecticut involved a few states: “My husband was originally from Colorado”, Mom said, “but we met in my birth area, New York City, where we worked. While we were living together, we started in NYC, then moved to Colorado, then back to the Big Apple, and finally to where I grew up, the lovely state of Connecticut. Our house is on the water in Stamford, and we love living on the beach!” Sounds like they’ve really found their home now, and with their newborn, they couldn’t be happier. For their little guy’s session, we wanted to compliment his handsome skin tone with a soft taupe, and add a textured backdrop with the dark wood. The white, flurry of fur was the perfect pairing to go with his tender skin, and we tied the palette off with him resting on blue knits and a driftwood basket. I loved the masculine, yet softer tones in this session, and I adored catching his tired yawns. Those are cute moments that slip by so quickly, and they’re what make a newborn session so valuable.

Mom shared a bit about what family means to them: “We both lost our mothers this last year”, said Mom, “so this family unit – my husband, baby, dog and I – is our world! We absolutely love family time.” Time can go by so fast, and at the end of our lives, the things that will matter most to us is family, and the memories we made with them. A newborn session is the start of capturing a family’s history, and creating a lasting legacy that will extend generations into the future. This lovely family in the session knows this deeply, and have waited so long for this amazing experience of new life, knitting their family even closer together.

❤  – Enjoy!
