And now for one of my favorite sessions this year – a 3 generation session for a fellow photographer and future business partner (yes, an exciting announcement is coming soon!).  Ute (www.utechristinphotography.com) and I actually met via Facebook through a mutual client.  We soon realized that we had quite a lot in common and have become close friends.  I don’t think a day goes by that we don’t text each other something!  Ute’s mom was visiting from Germany for a few weeks and she asked me to take some family pictures of them all.  I obviously jumped on the opportunity and I’m just delighted with the outcome.  We headed out to Waveny Park in New Canaan and well,…had a blast!

And somehow, so fast, my first newborn of 2013 (a real New Year’s babe!) turned 6 months last month.  I love when clients book my Milestone Memories package because I just LOVE seeing these babies grow.  And I absolutely love this family!  Have I said ‘love’ enough yet?  Maybe it’s because it just radiates from them.  Here are just some of my favorites from Charlotte’s 6 month session at Bayley Beach in Rowayton.

As I make an attempt to catch up on blogging, I just have to share a very special session from this past spring.  Jake and Melissa are very dear friends to me.   Struggling with infertility for years, they made the incredible and brave journey towards fostering and eventually adoption of their son Sean.  I had to sit on these images a bit until his adoption was finalized this July, and I’m so happy that I now get to share them with you….and those of his little sister Nora, who just happened to come along right before her brother’s adoption.  How amazing, right?!    We went to the beautiful Ambler Farm in Wilton for their maternity pictures and then had an amazing lifestyle newborn session in their home.  I thought Nora was deserving of some angel wings…

I just adore the simplicity and vibrancy of Rory’s newborn session in my Norwalk, CT studio.  Rory was awake for most of his session, but that probably had to do with the hour and half car ride his parents took him on to come see me.  What an honor!  I was especially grateful that they once again chose me to document a momentous time in their children’s lives.  I had the pleasure of taking big brother Aiden’s first birthday pictures and cake smash this past winter.

I have to admit, while posing sleeping newborns is my specialty, I LOVE awake newborn shots as well because these are the ones you compare as your child grows.  I’m so happy that momma ordered a giant canvas of one of these shots!

There are so many things that I love about my job, but watching my families grow has to be the best part.  And I feel so blessed to be a part of documenting that growth. Big sister Reese was an absolute blast during their mini maternity session just weeks before little sister Morgan arrived.  I am so thrilled that I get to see Reese and Morgan every few months since they booked my Milestone Memories package.  Such a beautiful family!
