The Three Most Adorable Sisters In Studio Newborn Session in Fairfield County

Oh my goodness I loved having these three sisters in the studio for baby’s newborn session! When this family walked in to my studio in Darien, I was just in AWE of their GORGEOUS children! What a lucky man Dad is to have a house full of lovely ladies! :)

Mom and baby came to the studio first to get ready for the session! Mom picked out this beautiful neutral gorgeous dress from the Client Wardrobe (which could not have been more perfect for her!), and I got busy taking individual portraits of their new baby! Sweet girl was wide awake so I was able to capture some portraits of her awake and asleep! Once Mom was dressed we captured a few images with her and her newborn baby girl!

When we were finishing up, Dad arrived with the big sisters! Mom picked out dresses from the Client Wardrobe for her daughters to wear and we started the family portion of the session! When toddler aged siblings are involved, I work as quickly as possible to capture those “must have” moments. So often, our younger aged siblings are still trying to adjust and sitting still beside this new baby is NOT their idea of a fun day! But luckily these big sisters were amazing and needed no bribing to love on their new baby! :) Newborn sessions with siblings tend to be a little different than sessions with a first baby. I really put the emphasis on the family together and the siblings, as that is usually what Momma cares about most! But I always try to still get a few portraits of Mom with the baby alone because baby will love those the most :)

Here is a glimpse at their session!

2 Year Old Surfer Baby Beach Milestone Session in Darien, CT

I’m excited to be showing you a glimpse of Jax’s 2 year milestone session from the beach in Darien, CT!

As a Mom of 2 who works from home, days can get kinda crazy…especially during the Summer when school is out! The evening of this session was one of those days! Beach sessions take place 1 hour before sunset, which is pretty late in the summer. So, my husband is usually home well before I leave for a session during the summer. Well, on this particular day, my husband had a rare meeting in NYC so he was commuting via train and his train got STUCK on the way home! He was stuck on the train and I had to leave for my session! Of course I couldn’t get a sitter 15 minutes before I needed one (though I tried) and I was really at a loss for what to do! It was super stressful for me because I HATE being late (and in fact, had never been late for a session prior to this one!). But I stayed in constant contact with my clients letting them know my ETA and put together a little thank you gift for them! My clients were THE SWEETEST people ever and were so understanding.

Two year session are always so much fun! You never know what they are going to do and they are a bit to young to understand “stand still and smile” so I just let them do their thing and document them being two! We move around a lot and keep trying new things to keep them from getting bored! He was a little unsure about the sand at first, but then decided he really loved throwing rocks into the water! I love his beautiful hair and his style went so well for the surfer beach baby look!

Beautiful Baby Girl Newborn Session | Connecticut Newborn Photographer Kristin Wood

I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful baby girl’s newborn session recently at my Connecticut studio. You might recognize Mama as I did her maternity session as well! It is so amazing to be able to photograph a pregnant Mama at her maternity session and then see her holding that precious baby she was dreaming about just a month or so before! Her Mama is a teacher and has the sweetest soul. My favorite part of my job is meeting so many new people! I always love hearing their birth stories and about their adventures as new parents!

As a newborn photographer, I’m meeting people days after giving birth (and usually after a few sleepless nights). Hormones are going crazy, your body is in a state of flux, and often you just feel tired and overwhelmed. I love being able to provide a relaxing environment for my clients to just sit and be pampered for a couple of hours. My makeup artist, Angelina, is so incredible not only with makeup, but as a therapist, is always so comforting! Being one of the first people trusted to hold your brand new baby is not something I take lightly. I give them the utmost care while they are with me (and try to give you a little break by taking care of diaper changes!). I give your precious babies lots of cuddles and baby talk while I get them wrapped up and sleepy for their session. Loving on your babies is such a treat!

Here are some of my favorite images from this Newborn Session!
