As a Connecticut lifestyle newborn photographer, what I love most about my Connecticut maternity and newborn session packages is seeing the major differences in dynamic at their home and with each other before and after bringing a child into the world. Booking a maternity session is one thing, but when you schedule both a maternity and newborn session with one photographer, you really get to know their style, their approach, their personality and their interests. You form a friendship and a personal relationship with your photographer as you both watch your children grow through the years. It cannot get any better than that.
You may recognize Marta and Miguel from their maternity session that took place just a few weeks back. Of course, Marta looked a tad bit different at that point in life (hello baby bump!) and now this little 2 week old’s modeling career is taking off! Marta was absolutely glowing with her sweet little baby bump and the house was a bit more quiet, but look at the love and the immense joy they are experiencing with the arrival of their precious baby boy!
I am so in love with this at-home lifestyle newborn session because I truly feel like I have experienced a part of their adventure together: the before and the after! These portrait sessions are slow, simple and magical. These moments and these portraits will be remembered long after we are gone, for classic portraiture is timeless, and timelessness is something I treasure and hold so near and dear to my heart as both an artist and a person. I want my clients to look back at their album and these photographs 50 years from now. My wish is that they will pass them to their children, and their children after that
I truly wish that everyone had images like these to share with their children and grandchildren someday. My hope is that every family will have one timeless and stunning printed image.
I believe that all of my families deserve a storybook album to pass down to their children someday, that their story is worthy of being invested in, that they are beautiful and deserving of being in front of a camera lens – during pregnancy, right after birth, and through the years as they grow older.
I believe that your family story is important and is worth being shared with others. When we gift love to one another, we remember that. We remember not what people did, but the way people make us feel. And portraiture is my deepest calling, it is my way to gift these feeling to others.
Thank you Marta and Miguel for trusting me during such an important time of your lives.
