Connecticut Family Photographer | Fairfield County Beach Photographer | Darien CT Weed Beach

This was such a fun extended family session. I’m so glad these Stamford natives decided to shoot at the beach in Darien. It made a perfect setting for the session, the kids had a blast, and we even got some sunset shots. They are a gorgeous family and so full of love for each other. The grandparents have been together for 49 years and I loved getting a snap a few of them together as well as them with their grandkids.

The Mom came over for a style consultation prior to the session. She tried on several pieces from the wardrobe and selected this beachy, flowy gray dress and also selected outfits for her two girls! The colors are perfection for the beach tones! The family ordered a custom gallery wall and they looked amazing in their home with the neutral, calm, relaxing colors!

Extended family sessions can be a real challenge at times. It is important to me to still capture those natural interactions and emotions and that seems to become more difficult with more people to corral. Having an awesome location with activities to do together really helps (in this case dancing in the sand and throwing rocks in the water).

Here are a few of my favorites (ok a lot of my favorites) from their session!

Connecticut Newborn Photography | Baby Charlie's Lifestyle Studio Baby Session | Fairfield County, CT

The Ceglarksi Family was my very first client after we moved to Connecticut. I’m so incredibly thankful that she reached out to me. They are the sweetest family and have been huge supporters of me!

She had her second baby boy this year and I had the great honor of photographing their new family! Big brother Gus is the cutest little guy ever with his red hair and big blue eyes. It’s been so fun to watch him grow up this year! He was still a little unsure about this new baby joining the family, but was super curious about him! I know they will be the very best of friends as soon as Charlie gets mobile!

Mom’s beautiful blue dress (a perfect for choice for a Mom of 2 boys) was borrowed from the studio wardrobe. This is definitely one of my favorite session’s of the year. The warm tones and coloring are so gorgeous, and there were so many fun-loving moments that captured my heart! Here are some of my favorites from the day!

Connecticut Studio Lifestyle Newborn Session | Fairfield County Ct

Ah the Russ session. There are no words for how beautiful Brooke is! I loved working with her and her family!

Brooke decided to have my makeup artist do her makeup (gosh it looked amazing too) so when she arrived, she looked through the studio wardrobe and selected her dress (she made the perfect choice!) and then got some pampering by the lovely Angelina of Beautymarked Studio. While Mom was busy relaxing and getting that “new mom glow” from Angelina, I took individual images of her sweet baby girl! She slept a little bit for me and then woke up ready to eat and was so curious the rest of her session! When Mom was finished getting ready, Dad and big brother arrived. We selected some shirts from the studio wardrobe for them and let Mom feed baby (we take as many breaks as we need to tend to all babies needs!).

Big brother was so sweet and called his sister “Baby Giiiiirl”! Be still my heart! I used some of those tricks I have up my sleeve to get him to engage with the baby for the photos and they turned out so cute.

I really want my studio sessions to be as natural and authentic as possible, even though we are in a studio environment. I see my part as being the “placer” as I put my clients in the right spot for the best lighting. I then give them some direction and click away at the magic that happens while they love on each other!

This session turned out so lovely! Here are a few of my favorite images from the session!
