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

You’ve heard it before – I’m primarily a natural light photographer and being outdoors and playing around with available light is still what I love to do most.  With the opening of my Norwalk, CT studio last Fall however, I’ve really learned to love both the lighting control and the design element that come with in-studio sessions – not to mention that I get to see all of these cute babies throughout the winter months!  From 1 Yr cake smash sessions, to 6 month milestone markers, to just fun 18 month old portraits, January and February have been a blast!  Even with the warm spring air upon us, I hope clients will still choose the studio to capture their special memories.  Rates are the same as on-location shoots and include a custom designed backdrop set up.  Enjoy just some of the babies of January & February 2013!

How about another lifestyle newborn session?  Bradley’s session was so special to me because I’ve known his mommy since we were about 5 years old in ballet class.  Truthfully, we hadn’t seen or spoken to each other since elementary school, but good old Facebook found a way to reconnect us many years later, and I was THRILLED when Kara asked me to shoot her maternity and newborn sessions.  Kara and her husband were Team Green, and I was dying to find out whether they were having a girl or a boy.  Sure enough, Mr.Bradley kept everyone waiting and arrived days past his due date.  He was totally worth the wait for me though. What a cutie!  Bradley was my second newborn of 2013 and sure enough, he started the year off right and peed on my leg!  Hey, it’s all in a days work, right?  And how about his nursery?!  I was thiiiiis close to redecorating a room in my house grey and yellow.  I even bought the yellow chevron blanket just for his session.  I couldn’t help myself.  I think that might be my favorite image from the session….or maybe it’s the one of him in his momma’s bellycast.  I can never really decide on favorites!

Oh my!  I can’t believe I haven’t yet blogged Grace’s one year session from December.  I met Grace’s mom in one of my new mommy groups, and I was so excited when she asked me to take Grace’s cake smash and one year family photos.  I was even more elated to find a use for my new purple chair.  We headed out to Waveny Park in New Canaan, CT and thankfully, Miss Grace didn’t mind the cold air.  Isn’t she the cutest?

Valentine’s Day Mini sessions have been on my radar since the Fall, and after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary took place so close to home, I knew that these sessions would be the perfect fundraiser.  I found the United Way of Western CT’s Sandy Hook School Support Fund and offered to donate 100% of the session fees to the fund.  I had clients come all the way from New York to participate in the fundraiser.  It was wonderful to be able to make donation to the fund, and there was something undeniably magical about capturing those sweet and innocent smiles on my camera.   And yes, that last girl is my 18 month old, the most difficult subject of the day, of course.  I present to you my favorites from the day…

Where do I begin with this precious 6 day old sweet babe?  How about that she was born on New Year’s Day!  Charlotte was not only my first newborn shoot of the year, but my first portrait session of 2013.  She even travelled all the way from Manhattan to my Norwalk, CT studio to see me.  And I am so glad she did.  As you can tell, momma likes pink, and I SO enjoyed getting to pull out some of my pink blankets and headbands. I think my favorite prop of the shoot was the pink blanket that Charlotte’s mom came home from the hospital in as a newborn.  I love that it has been passed down to her.  It was hard to pick my favorites from this session, but here they are.  Enjoy!
