Lifestyle Newborn Session in Darien, CT | Fairfield County Connecticut Newborn Photographer | Kristin Wood Photography

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing 5 day old Nick and his family! This lifestyle newborn session in Darien, CT is an example of everything going right at an in-home session! The family was gorgeous (see below!) and so very kind and sweet with such gentle souls. Their home was beautiful with TONS of natural light (aaahhhh a dream come true for photographers). New big brother Dean was a champ and so much fun to work with (I just love little boys…probably because I have my own not quite so little boy). It was such a great session and I walked away feeling inspired and reminded of why I love my job so much!

The family did a wardrobe change during a feeding break, which is always lots of fun! They have two very different looks, but they are neutral enough that the photos work together seamlessly.

Connecticut Baby Photographer | Harry's 8 months Sitter Session in Darien, CT by Kristin Wood Photography

I am LOVING these Simply Baby mini sessions that I offered this month. I adore babies (I mean, who doesn’t?!) and these sessions give me all the feels. I could cry tears of pure joy during these sessions. They are so cute at this stage- sitting up but not crawling. Doing all the cute babbles, grabbing their feet, rolling over. It’s just adorable overload. The Client Closet is well stocked in simple baby outfits that are perfect for these sessions so you don’t even have to worry about what your baby will wear! Just come to the studio in their pjs and pick out an outfit! So easy! To learn more about baby Milestone Sessions click here. If you are interested in booking your own baby session, contact me and we will get it scheduled!

Harry was such a cutie pie during his session. He was so happy and curious. I could have played with him all day.

Connecticut Baby Photography | 3 Month Session Lifestyle Studio Session by Fairfield County Photographer Kristin Wood Photography

This 3-month milestone session was definitely memorable! Not just because this is one of the sweetest families I’ve working with, but because little Nico was really showing out! This family traveled from Fairfield to my studio in Darien for their session. This was their first session as a family of 3 and I was so honored to get to document this special time for them.

This mama is STUNNING. Her hair and makeup were perfection. She came in her sweats (as I encourage all Moms to do) and had fun “shopping” the Client Closet for the perfect dress. She selected my very favorite dress (the white hand embroidered Fillyboo) from the wardrobe and I definitely oohed and aahhed when I saw her all dressed up. She looked like a goddess. Unfortunately, that dress didn’t make it through the session…more on that later! LOL! Her next choice looked gorgeous as well (pretty sure she could make a paper sack look good). Hubby was so patient, helpful, and loving with little Nico. I could tell these two were having a blast figuring out this parenting thing together.

The session was going wonderful until Baby Nico decided to show out with a blow out! LOL!!! Poop Happens! He had to get a bath mid-way through his session in the studio bathroom sink (so glad the studio has a sink and a washer/dryer close at hand because babies poop!)! I know it was stressful for Mom and Dad to deal with when they weren’t at home, but I couldn’t help but smile as it brought back so many memories of my own babies! They both had a knack for having major blowouts, especially when I didn’t have backup clothes! It’s like somehow they knew I was unprepared and just let it go.

I remember one time when we were at a friend’s house and Liam had his very first major blow out. He ended up riding home in a diaper, one sock, and a swaddle blanket draped around him! Somewhere I have a photo of him from that moment. In the moment it was stressful. Once we were settled in the car it was hilarious. And now, 6 years later, it’s a memory I never want to lose. Funny how that happens. Being a parent is SO hard in the moments. But when a little time passes and we have a new perspective, we see just how much even the hard moments were worth it.

Anyway, it was a blast and a session I will definitely remember not just for the excitement but also for what a beautiful family they are, inside and out! Here are some of my favorites!

Connecticut Family Photography | In Home Family Session in Darien CT by Fairfield County Photographer Kristin Wood Photography

Oh how I adore this family! They are so gracious, kind and humble. They are new residents in Darien and have a gorgeous new home. They made the move from “the city” (that means NYC as I’ve learned) to the suburbs, and are thrilled to have so much space! We snuck in this in-home family session on one of the last nice days we had this fall! There home was perfect for an in-home session with lots of natural light and beautiful decor. Mom and Dad have their hands (and hearts) full with two sweet young toddlers, but are loving every second of it (as you can see in these photos!)! Here are some of my favorites from their session!

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!

Connecticut Newborn Photographer | Baby Josie's Newborn Studio Session in Fairfield County, CT

Kicking off the New Year with one of my favorite sessions from last year! This family is everything a photographer dreams of in a client. They love each other deeply and aren’t afraid to show that in front of the camera. They are kind, funny and authentic. I absolutely adored Jamie and really got to know her while she was getting pampered by my makeup artist!

When Jamie arrived, she came in like a breath of fresh air! We went right to work selecting her wardrobe and my makeup artist Angelina was already set-up and waiting to get started on giving her that “new mom glow.“ While she had her makeup done, I started taking individual portraits of her precious baby girl. We all chatted and laughed as we compared pregnancy and birth stories.

Once Mom was dressed and ready, I began to photograph she and baby together. This is my FAVORITE part of Newborn sessions. There is nothing more special and precious than a Mom with her brand new baby. About the time we were finishing up, Dad and big brother arrived! We moved right into family portraits, sibling portraits and then Dad and baby portraits! Big brother Noah did fantastic and was so loving toward his new baby sister.

Here are a few of my favorite images from their session!
