CT Newborn, Maternity, Family Photographer |Alex Christine Photography | Darien, Greenwich, New Canaan, Norwalk, Ridgefield, Stamford, Westport, Weston, Wilton » vibrant & artful portrait photography by Alexandra Ralph

It’s been a busy few weeks in my Norwalk, CT studio with not only a lot of newborn babies, but many of my newborns from last year turning ONE!  I’ve also started a fun mini renovation and can’t wait to share pictures when it’s done next week.  For now, a quick share of adorable little Kiran.  He was such an angel for his session and only woke up at the very last few minutes so I could be sure to get an awake shot of him.

If you’ve ever read the “About Me” section of my website, you know that my passion for photography was ignited by old photo albums and photographs.  I eventually found my way behind a polaroid camera and would save up my allowance at weeks at a time to be able to buy all the film.  I fell in love with the most unique thing about this art form – the ability to bring you right back to the feelings and smells of when a particular image was captured.  I was still a little girl when my beloved Poppi (and giver of my first Polaroid) passed away.  The memories of our time together faded, but the pictures of our love remained, and had the power to bring me right back to our special connection.  This is what I always hope to do for my clients – not only to create fine art for your walls, but to create art that will be heirlooms to future generations and bring everyone that sees them right to that moment.  Never has this passion been so strong as when I first became a mother.  I realized very quickly that it was easy to forget what it felt like to carry my baby girl in my belly, to feed her in those first few days…to forget that sweet baby smell.  Over the last few years as a CT Newborn, Maternity and Family Photographer, I’ve had the absolute pleasure of spending time with expecting mothers, brand new mothers, and grandmothers, and I clicked away for them.  I clicked away for their hearts and for their children and grandchildren’s future hearts.

This is my first of many black and white series, and I thought that there was no better time than Mother’s Day weekend to show this collection to the world.  Motherhood is insanely gorgeous.  My favorite quote about this particular journey comes from Elizabeth Stone :

“Making the decision to have a child – it is MOMENTOUS.  It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ”  

Happy Mother’s Day to the woman waiting for the call to finally get to adopt her precious new baby.  Happy Mother’s Day to the woman who is 3 days past her due date,  just begging for today to be the day.  Happy Mother’s Day to the almost mom of two, who is wondering how on earth her heart will grow enough to love another like she does her first.  Happy Mother’s Day to the grandmothers and great-grandmothers who give all of us new moms hope that it is possible to to actually live with our hearts outside of our bodies.  And Happy Mother’s Day to my own mama.  Without her love and constant support of my dreams, this post, this business, these images, would not even be here.

…and baby makes 5! I think one of my favorite parts of being a CT Newborn Photographer is working with growing families.  There is just something so incredibly special about adding to your family.  I remember the first fews days home with our Eloise and the tender moments of our big girl Adalyn giving her kisses and loving “her” new baby.  Looking back on those images from my own family’s session brings me right back to those sweet emotions that I never want to forget.  It’s crazy how that at just one year later,  I really could forget her sweet baby smell.  Juliet’s in-home session in New Canaan stands out as a favorite session, I think, because we hope to grow our family to 5 as well.  I love how their new family dynamic and their new love they have for this sweet addition is captured in these images…and well, she’s a crazy cute baby too!

New this year to Alex Christine Photography are my Milestone Mini Sessions at Waveny Park in New Canaan or at my Norwalk, CT studio.  They include 20 minutes of shooting time, approximately 15 fully-edited high resolution images, and your choice of 2 gift size prints (4×6, 5×7, 8×10).  They are the perfect way to capture ‘milestone’ images of your little ones.  While these are designed for babies only, I’ve been known to make mom jump in for a shot or two, so be sure to come dressed with your makeup on.  🙂   Devon’s mama wanted to keep it simple and classic.  I just LOVE these and her sweet, sweet smile.
