365: a personal project | may

OK, so I know it’s July and I’m just posting May. What can I say. Summer has been busy with the kids home. I’m still plugging along with the project. All 31 days were completed in May and I’m on a roll. I’ve started thinking about weather I’ll be doing the project in 2018 but haven’t decided yet. However, I’m glad that I did it this year. I’m putting together a book that will have all the photos from this project in it. It will be so rewarding!

Take a look at past months!



365: A Personal Project | May

365 photo project

sweet baby boy | newborn photography ct | milán

This has been the year of girls for my business. I was so excited to photograph sweet baby boy Milán. He is only the 3rd newborn boy to come into my studio this year! Isn’t that crazy? There has been an abundance of girls so I loved having a baby boy to cuddle. Milán was 12 days at his newborn session and I don’t think I ever saw his eyes!

The Best Big Sister

I am in LOVE with these sibling images. Newborn and sibling images are often the toughest part of my job. However, big sister did AMAZING! She was shy in the beginning, but she took my hand as I brought her to the shooting area. Mom stayed behind a bit and then magic happened. Big sister did exactly what I asked and we ended up with some amazing sibling portraits.

White, Blue, and Brown

The colors chosen for Milán’s were a combination of white, blue, and brown. I especially love him on blue, but he looked amazing with all colors.

Two year old twins, Emily and Charlotte, gave me great exercise on this beautiful night! I’m not sure if either of them sat still for more than one second. We ran, jumped, and sang some songs. Good thing no one was video taping! The summer is perfect for family photography Danbury CT. Beautiful dresses and full lush trees make for beautiful light.

Sisterly Love

This is one of my most recently all time favorite photos. I might have ordered a print of this image for my studio bathroom. There’s nothing like sisterly love!

danbury newborn studio | baby hailey 4 weeks

Oh my, summer is here which means I am crazy busy and don’t have enough time to keep up on blogging! My kids are out of school so we’ve been having a lot of fun during the day. During the school year I’m able to keep more of a daytime schedule but it’s not always possible during summer. So I’m back to working some evenings in order to stay caught up. Photographing the actual session is only a small percentage of the work, while the majority is spent behind the computer! Well enough with my chatter, I know you are excited to see this Danbury newborn studio session!

Danbury Newborn Studio | Hailey 4 weeks

Adorable Hailey was 4 weeks new when she came for her newborn session in my Newtown studio, located close to Danbury CT. Hailey surprised her mom and dad with being born one month early. She spent some time in the nicu so we planned the session for shortly after she was discharged. Her Dad is in the military and was leaving just a couple days later so we got the session done just in time before he had to leave!

Hailey weighed 4 lbs 3 oz and birth and was about 6 lbs 9 oz when I got to photograph her. She was such a doll and I loved spending time with her. Unfortunately, Hailey had a bunch of IV’s during her stay in the hospital so she didn’t like being touched too much. Despite that, she did really great and we got an amazing gallery.

Mom & Dad Love

With being in the military and leaving just a couple days later, I made sure to take more parent/family images to include in the gallery than usual. It didn’t hurt that they are a beautiful family. These are some of my favorite family images.

Custom Newborn Photography

A questionnaire is sent out before all my sessions. For my newborn sessions it goes over colors, prop and pose preferences. These are photos that are going to be hanging on YOUR walls. Therefore I want to make sure that it matches your style. Lavender, warm gray, and cream were the colors chosen for Hailey’s newborn portraits.
