alice in “one”derland cake smash | weston ct baby | Holly

I was so excited to see Holly again. She is the cutest Weston CT baby and it’s always a joy to photograph her. This time she was in the studio for her Alice in ONEderland cake smash. How cute is that theme!? Cake smash sessions are a lot of work to coordinate and put together, but I always love the end results. Crafting is a hobby of mine that I don’t do as often as I like. However, cake smash sessions let me craft away and use my creativity.

Holly: Weston CT baby

The first setup was simple with shades of purple and a little gray. Since my cake smash sessions are often colorful and elaborate, I love the first part of the portrait session to be more simple.

Alice in ONEderland

Wow, this has got to be one of my all time favorite cake smash setups. I started right away thinking about how I’d design the set up. Mom asked if we could do a tea party and requested colors of blue, and purple. We also added in a touch of yellow. We sent many emails back and forth as we were putting this set together. Mom made the sign and brought in the tea pot and cups. I made the pinwheel background. The blue pettiskirt I already had was perfect and I found some beads to make the adorable chunky necklace! As always, the fabulous cake was made by Who Wants Cake. 

I always take a couple photos before the birthday girl or boy dives in. The perfect setup does not remain perfect for long!

brookfield newborn photos | Chloe 9 days

So many adorable baby girls lately! Chloe was in the town next door and didn’t have far to travel for her Brookfield newborn photos. She was 9 days new at the time of her session and sleepy *almost* the whole time. It wasn’t until the end that she woke up to give me some eye contact. Just the way I like it!

Brookfield Newborn Photos: Chloe 9 days

I had photographed her big brother at their home in 2013 for a lifestyle session. Pretty sure I mentioned this in a previous post, but so many of my 2013 babies have been having siblings this year! I’ve lost track of the number, but should look it up at some point.

Chloe was a little peanut. She was 6 lbs 3 oz at birth.

Pink, Cream & Gold

Chloe’s mom picked out pink, creams, and gold for her session. It was so soft and girly. Simply gorgeous!

This setup below is one of my all time favorites. I love the outfit with the gorgeous halo by prissy princess. There is something so soft and sweet about the pose and colors.

Little Details

I just love the little details of their tiny ha26nds and toes. My macro lens has been becoming out more often at my newborn sessions. I have to admit, I really love baby toes.

Smile!

There is nothing more that melts me than a smiling newborn. Sure, they say it’s gas and a reflex. Either way it is super adorable!

365 | a personal project: march

Another month completed! While I’ve started to slack a little bit on my 365 project, I’m still plugging along. This month I missed 3 days.. and April isn’t off to a great start. I’m not going to give up though and hopefully soon I’ll be able to complete the whole month.

Take a look at past months!

fall family photography: fairfield county ct

I can’t believe I’m talking about fall family photography when it seems like spring just started. It’s not quite time to book fall sessions yet, but I usually start booking them mid summer. This past fall was crazy busy with family sessions that I didn’t have time to blog all of them. So I thought I’d take a little time now to blog a few of my favorites from mini sessions I held last fall.

Fall Family Photography: Fairfield County CT

There’s nothing like a little boy sitting on a crate. So serious and inquisitive.

Brother & Sister! If I have this correct, they are my 1st cousins, once removed 🙂

I love the similarities and differences of these sisters. Reminds me of my kids with the different hair colors.

Spring & Summer Family Photography

Fall is not the only time to update your family photos. Family photography sessions take place throughout the spring and summer. Think the lush colors of summer with flowy dresses and sandals. I had my own family photos done the end of summer and I just love the colors.

No matter the season, you can fill out the contact form to find out more information on family photography. Sessions take place in the evening when the light is flattering. It changes depending on the month and the location. Sessions can start anywhere from 3:30 in the fall, to 7 pm or later in the summer.
