Dads with newborns just warm my heart. I still think back of the first time I saw my husband with our newborn son. When you husband turns into a father you view him in a different light. A whole new type of love for him enters your world. The love that is evoked during a newborn session is like no other.

Dads with Newborns: Friday Favorites

Since last week’s Friday Favorites featured moms, it only made sense to feature my favorite dads with newborns.

Some of my favorite dad and baby images are ones that are more focused on dad holding baby. This little new being, held by the hands of their dad. Dad’s hands are so big compared to this tiny baby. It’s hard to imagine we all started out this small.

Newborns are typically 6-16 days at time of being photographed at my Newtown CT studio. Mom and Dad sit back and watch a movie (or take a nap) while I care for their little one.

I was so honored when Click Magazine reached out to be about one of my images. Being a subscriber since their first issue, I hadn’t even dreamed of being featured IN their magazine! When they showed me a mock up of the image for their magazine, it hit me that I was going to be a published newborn photographer. Such an incredible honor!

My husband came in from getting the mail one day. He asked me if I had ordered any books recently. I was really confused and saw that he was holding a package. I took a look at it and realized it must have been the magazine. Inside was 5 copies of the issue I was published in.

Next time you are at the studio, ask to see a copy! The image is of sweet Gabriella during her newborn session. She was 17 days new and so alert in this image. One of my favorites!

Happy Friday! I’m going to try to bring Friday Favorites back. No guarantees on how long I last! This week focuses on mom and newborn love. These are a few of my favorite images of mom with their new addition. Next week will be of dad!

Mom & Newborn Love

There’s nothing better than a mom’s love for her new baby. A newborn often settles right down when they are cuddled next to their mom. I feel like you can see mom’s love all over her face. It still amazes me every day what our bodies are able to do. That women can grow another human. It certainly is a miracle. There is nothing better than being able to capture their love as my job.

Russell is just the cutest little New Fairfield baby. He came to my studio at 4 months for a holiday session. He was as cute as could be and loved to give me smiles. I could have photographed him all day!

New Fairfield Baby: Russell 4 months

Four months is one of my favorite ages for baby sessions. They are often champs at tummy time and hold their head up high. The eye contact and smiles never stop either!

Holiday Card Photos

November often fills up quickly with holiday sessions. There aren’t many times I year I offer mini sessions. If they are offered it’s in the fall. October for outdoor sessions. And then November for studio holiday sessions. They are the perfect opportunities for a small amount of images to use for your holiday card!
