Fairfield County, CT Newborn Photography | Connecticut Newborn Photographer

In the summer of last year, Stephanie contacted me for a family photography session at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center in Stamford, CT You can view that photography session here

Shortly before our session, Stephanie found out she was pregnant with this little guy.
I am so honored that they invited me into their home to capture this stage of their life.

I love photographing newborn sessions in the family's home. Capturing all of the details of their daily life. Their personal style. Documenting a family in the familiarity and comfort of their own home.

I love that being at home during newborn sessions allows older siblings to be able to play with their favorite toys and enjoy the photography session without the pressure of performing for the camera. 
We even took a much needed hot cocoa break. 

It was a wonderful morning spent with this lovely family photographing their newborn session.

Rescue Puppies instead of Bouquets at this Connecticut Wedding

Rescue puppies instead of bouquets

Becky and John were in the middle of planning for their wedding that would take place at The Litchfield Inn in Litchfield, CT, when their local rescue located in West Cornwall, CT The Little Guild had a post about some puppies needing a foster home. 

A local resident posted on The Little Guild's Facebook page looking for a foster home for a litter of puppies that they found in their neighbor's yard. Becky and John saw the post and said to each other "We've raised baby piglets and cows before, so this can't be much different!"

They first started fostering two puppies from the litter named Penny and Patch. The puppies were so new that they couldn't stay home alone. Becky and John had to make a day trip to Cabelas to get some supplies for their honeymoon so the puppies joined along on their trip, snuggled up inside of a diaper bag in the shopping cart and having bottles in the car ride. 

Soon after they started fostering 3 more puppies from the litter, Roley, Lucky and Freckles. 
When Becky and John were switching the pups from milk to dog food, they got so covered in the food they would have to give them all baths every time they ate, multiple times a day. "It was mayhem," says Becky.
Becky and John were able to foster all of the puppies right up until they found their forever homes.

Including the rescue puppies in their big day was a no-brainer. Who needs bouquets when you can have puppies?!

Families who were interested in adopting the puppies submitted applications and references including a reference from their veterinarian. All of the puppies went to great homes shortly after Becky and John's wedding day. 
Patch, who is now named Mo, found a home with John's aunt, so they are still able to visit with him.

Becky believes all of the incessant puppy cuddling they did while fostering them turned them all into great dogs.

What is Lifestyle Newborn Photography

 in home lifestyle newborn photography with pets on the couch

What is Lifestyle Newborn Photography?

The word I think of is home. Your home In-home Newborn LIfestyle Photography sessions are about capturing these first moments with your sweet new baby, in the comfort of your own home. Each image bursting at the seams with love and family connection.

Personal style.

These images are filled to the brim with details of your life.
From the decor in the nursey that you worked long and hard to put together. Picking out the perfect colors and details that speak to your soul. The space where you will sit quietly (sometimes not so quietly) rocking your newborn baby at 3 am.
To the throw pillows in your living room and the comforter on your bed.

These are all details that are part of your story. Details that will change slowly over time as your style changes and items grow old and need to be replaced. Documenting your life right now is part of the story you will share with your baby as they grow older.

Family connection. 

Lifestyle Newborn Photography is all about the family connection. The connection between you and your spouse. The connection between both of you and your new little love. Your photographs will be filled with gentle moments of embrace and everyday moments of swaddling and rocking. Capturing how impossibly small they are, curled up in your arms and sprawled out on your great big bed. All of the moments that pass in the blink of an eye.

Familiarity.

 The comfort of your own home is the perfect space for older siblings. Wiggly toddlers aren't expected to sit still inside of a studio. They will be surrounded by their favorite toys, they can share their favorite book with their new sibling, and be able to raid the snack cabinet whenever the feeling strikes.

Relaxed.

With heavily posed Newborn Photography (babies tucked into baskets and buckets or posed on blankets) babies need to be 8 days old or less so they are extra sleepy. Hoping that they will sleep soundly through hours of posing. Lifestyle Newborn Photography doesn't require your baby to stay asleep while laying alone on a blanket. Lifestyle Newborn Photography Sessions are all about swaddling and snuggles. Two things newborns crave. Because babies aren't needing to be sound asleep during these Lifestyle sessions, they can be done after 8 days old (typically between 9 and 30 days). Which is great if you would like a little extra time to feel like yourself or to heal from a c-section.

Ease.

Being in your own home allows you to have everything you need right on hand. No need to pack up bags filled with everything you can think of, from bottles to extra clothes and all the diapers you can cram inside. Everything you may need will be right at arm's length. Including some hot cocoa on a chilly winter day.

CT Newborn Photography and Films | Connecticut Newborn Photographer

Using videography during a Newborn Photography Session has got to be one of my favorite things in the world.

Capturing all of those tiny movements and sweet kisses in motion with a Family Film, nothing compares to that.

Baby Jace was just the sweetest and sleepiest little man during our photography session. At one point mom and dad were trying to wake him gently, but he just wasn't having it.

His nursey had the sweetest decore of foxes and woodland critters. 

You can watch Baby Jace's Newborn Family Film below and also check out some of the still photographs from this session as well.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING OUR LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION

Well first, what is LIfestyle Photography? To me, lifestyle photography is photography without all of the stress. It isn't worrying about children sitting still in a small studio. I encourage children to run and play, Daddy's to toss their kids into the air, Mom's to twirl in the sunlight with their daughter's (and sons!)
It isn't about crossing your fingers that your children will look at the camera and smile. It is all about enjoying your time together as a family, while I join in on the fun and take photographs along the way. All of the smiles and laughs will happen naturally.

I will give gentle guidance if needed if you're feeling nervous in front of the camera. But honestly, just let loose and enjoy your family! Give hugs and kisses, pick wildflowers, splash in the ocean. Life pulls us in so many directions, use this time to slow down and enjoy each other. Use the photographs to plaster the walls of your home with beautiful images of your love. Create a photo book to snuggle up on the couch and flip through again and again.

Your life is so beautiful and it deserves to be documented.

Before Our Session: 

We will chat about location ideas. I have lots of suggestions and I love to explore new locations as well. I also have a client guide that talks a bit more about how the session will go and also has some outfit suggestions.

Your session fee books your session and gets you on my calendar.

During Our Session:

When we meet for our session, I like to chat a bit before we jump in.  I mean honestly, I just love to chat in general.

With all of my sessions, I never expect everyone to be looking at the camera and smiling to have the perfect portrait.  I encourage running and jumping, hugging and kissing. Connecting with and loving on each other.
I never want you to feel pressured to perform or be forced to give me fake smiles.
You will leave our session feeling like you just had a fun afternoon with your family, and a photographer happened to be there to capture timeless moments for you.
I can't count how many times parents have contacted me after their session to tell me their kids keep asking for me to come back. Or thank me for how easy and stress-free their photography session was. 

I will guide you a very small amount at first as you are warming up to having a camera on you, but within the first few minutes we will be chatting, snapping photos, laughing and having fun. When there is no pressure to pose yourself and fake the perfect smile, when your time in front of the camera is spent genuinely having fun with your loved ones...your beauty shines. 

After Our Session:

This is one of my favorite parts. Putting all of the images onto my computer and looking through them. There are so many times when a smile spreads across my face knowing how much these images mean to my families. The family connection is like nothing else.

I spend time (lots of it) hand editing the best of the best images from your session.
Within a few days of our session, I will post a couple of sneak peek images on social media (if you'd like.) I love the peek into your gallery that this provides (and I know how anxious you are to see them as well!) About three weeks from our session, your images will be fully edited for you to view in an online password protected gallery. From there you download your high-resolution images. You also have the option of ordering a la carte prints, canvas', and photo gifts straight from your gallery, from a professional, high-quality printing lab.
If you are opting to print your digital images at another print lab other than the one connected to your gallery, I strongly suggest you do research into finding one with high quality to ensure you get the most out of your investment.

CT Mini Photography Session | CT Family Photographer

 newborn photographer connecticut 

Nothing beats a warm Spring day in the sunshine with a super loving family.

This Mini Photography Session in Middletown, CT was a blast. I have been photographing this family since their sweet girl was 1 year old. For this Spring Mini Session we picked a small park along the Connecticut River to explore. We picked flowers together and there were so, so many big bear hugs and sweet giggles.
