Baby's First Year and Beyond

Warm Family Studio Newborn Session Inspiration – Pia


When I first started photographing families at my studio, I knew exactly what I wanted to capture in my amazing and cozy Connecticut space. Greenwich is a popular long-weekend location for other New Englanders, and most people who live in the region will find themselves here at some point. I knew I wanted to take photographs that make it look like my client families receive small-town, personalized service – because that’s exactly what they get from me. Is there anything better than having a photographer’s undivided attention? Here’s the evidence in favor!

I also want to point out that if you’re thinking of booking a studio session with me, I love the use of dad’s traditional cultural clothing in this session. When clients bring in those family heirlooms for a studio newborn portrait session, I often find that those images become their favorites, which is beautiful. The red of this garment truly emits the joy of a celebration. I’m inspired to use rich colors more often!

Now, when it came to the family, I was so flattered to have this client contact me last minute, after their daughter had been born. In her new client questionnaire, when asked how she found Looking Up Photography, mom Margaret stated that the images I take are “pure bliss.” How in the world could anyone say no to that inquiry? Thank you, Margaret. Those words will stay with me for a long time to come. I want to say, too, that adorable baby girl Pia was super easy-going and cooperative. I have no doubt that she will be brought up fabulously according to her parents’ family values of faith, love, and respect.

Cheers to new life!
