Baby's First Year and Beyond

Timeless Family Moments | Connecticut Newborn Photographer


Every great love story has a beginning. This family got its sweet start about a decade ago, when dad and mom met through mutual friends. Now they have two beautiful children and a family legacy. When they welcomed their newest son, they knew it would be the perfect opportunity to update their family photos. They requested a mix of posed and candid images, and I enjoyed sharing genuine moments with them, filled with laughter and plenty of smiles over their very busy two-year-old. Speaking of big brother, he is nothing but a delight! He enjoys playing with trucks, jumping and bouncing, and playing ring-around-the-rosy, and he’s acclimated well to his adorable new sibling. Mom shared that he is very active and loving, and also quite social. He wasn’t shy when it came to taking photos, and enjoyed the spotlight very much (that always makes my job easier!). 

Classic and timeless were the words mom and dad used when describing their personal taste, and so I modeled their session to suit their decor and the types of images they wanted. They plan on incorporating the images on some special wall spaces in their home, and I can’t wait to see what they come up with. When it comes to spending time as a family, these four enjoy visiting grandparents, and heading to the beach, where their little one can chase the gulls. Their family is shaped around love and honesty, and they are genuine, warm and caring people. “We were just so excited to be growing our family”, adds mom, “We wanted to capture our kids during such a special and fleeting time. We hadn’t done these images before, so we followed your lead, and ended up with great shots of the four of us, and the baby, of course. When we set out to find the right person, we looked for someone professional, and caring with a lot of experience with newborn photography!”

I always try to capture the tiny details in my newborn sessions, and I sure fell head over heels with the little toes and lips below! What a sweet family. If you are interested in booking a session in our studio, please contact me here!
