Dominic was 6 1/2 weeks when he came to my studio for his Danbury newborn portraits. He was past the “typical” age that I photograph newborns. I knew there my might be less of the sleepy newborn poses, and more of the awake poses. However, I was confident that I would be able to capture many great images for his parents to treasure.

Danbury Newborn Portraits: Dominic

Hello there bright eyes! One of the things I love about photographing “older” newborns is the eye contact. At 6 1/2 weeks, Dominic had amazing eye contact, and even gave me a little smirk. Look at those amazing eyelashes!

Sleepy baby boy

I always tell parents that they will fall asleep eventually. Some babies might take longer than others, but their awake cycles are so short during this time. Let me tell you, Dominic was one of my fastest newborn sessions! I might need to change my suggested age range. Give me all the older newborns! He was awake and gave me amazing eye contact in the beginning of the session, then he fell asleep and let me pose him.

Tiny Baby Details

I have cracked out my macro lens again at my past several sessions and found a new love for it. I just love capturing the little details of a new baby’s hands and toes.

Future Bronco?

Mom had brought this Bronco jersey for Dominic to wear at his session. He was awake again and just stared at me with those beautiful brown eyes of his!

CT Newborn Photographer

I have learned with photographing Dominic, that it is not too late to get newborn portraits taken if your baby is past two weeks. I’d love to work with you and capture your little one whether they are 1 week or 1 month.

I was so glad to see sweet Emma again! She came from Berlin CT for one of my fall mini sessions. The last time I saw her was for her newborn session a couple years ago! I loved seeing how much she has grown. Which was a LOT! Emma is full of spunk and I just loved chasing around with her.

Availability Update: 2016 Fall Family Sessions

I need to make a separate post with an update, but I’ve been getting many emails about fall sessions. Right now I have one or two weekday options for a full family session NEXT WEEK. I also have two slots available for a mini session on October 30 that was a make up. After those are done, I have no more availability for fall family sessions. If you would like to get on the list for next year, I start booking October sessions in July. You can sign up for the mailing list here.

I am swamped with editing, but don’t like to get too far with blogging either, so thought I’d take a few minutes to post one of my recent mini sessions of this New Canaan family! It was so great to see this family again. I was able to photograph them last year and I loved seeing how much their kids have grown. Take a look at last year’s mini session!

It is always such an honor to photograph an extended family photography session. I know how much they value photography to coordinate multiple families getting together at the same time. I know it can be no easy task to get one family together for family photos. You would think as a photographer I have a lot of family photos of my family. Well, let me tell you a story. At the beginning of the school year, 2 out of my 3 kids came home with homework to bring in photos. They needed a few photos, one being a family photo. Now, I have a large canvas hanging in my living room, but it’s from 3 years ago. I looked around and had NO small prints. Next step was to go through all my images on the computer. I went back 2 years!! I have since fixed that problem, because as a family photographer how can I encourage others the importance of family photography when I was behind on my own family! I will be hiring someone for next year, because it can be a challenge with tripod, but something is better than nothing! OK, so back to this amazing family, that got everyone together for an extended family photography session! I was told that they do group photos every 10 years. I absolutely love that and I think my next mission will be to get my extended family together!

Extended Family Photography: Goshen CT

I had a BLAST with the H family. I don’t think I’ve laughed so much at a session before. Everyone was amazing and despite a few flies, we got through it! I love all the different groups we were able to get in. Of course we got the big group photo and with all my extended family sessions, also got individual families. We got the grandparents with their grandkids and individual images of the kids. These are images they will have for a lifetime and passed down to future generations <3.
