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

Sometimes, you just get an awesome shot – no posing, no strategic placing of a subject in line with the sun, no telling anyone to “smile”.  The best photographs, my favorite ones, happen all on their own.  This particular picture was shot at the conclusion of a family session with The ‘G’ Family (more on their adorable session by the end of the week).  My husband brought Adalyn along for some 8 month pictures and we plopped her up on the bench with the other kids.  I have yet to be able to tell Nancy’s precious twin boys apart, but I think it’s Sammy thinking something along the lines of, “Mom, you didn’t get another one, did you?”.  Priceless, hilarious, just about perfect, if I do say so myself.

The is was my first family session at this new location in Wilton, CT.  I couldn’t have asked for a better family to help me break it in.  They are picture perfect, sweet baby Cathyrn was all smiles the entire time, and Crissie and Steve were up for just about anything.  Even though the sun was still beating down on us at 5:30pm, it was pretty chilly with the wind.  They were troopers!  Please meet the adorable ‘D’ Family.

I love that spring officially began only 2 weeks ago, yet the last three of my sessions have been on Connecticut beaches.  This time, we headed out to one of my favorite CT state parks, Sherwood Island in Wesport.  I had so much fun shooting this adorable mommy and me couple.  Elodie is one of the smiliest babies I have ever met.  And it’s obvious that she gets her pretty smile from her mommy.

  • Kathryn - Great work on these!

    Love these two ladies 🙂 There are so many cute ones, but the fifth from the bottom needs to be on a BIG canvas!ReplyCancel

Let’s face it… mom is usually the one holding the camera taking all of those sweet family pictures. The images she captures are priceless and wonderful but more times than not, she’s never in the picture! So let’s celebrate some mommy and me time with a 15 minute session capturing some giggles, snuggles, and smooches!
You can bring along your little ones or even your grown up ones, but this event is for moms and their children only.

Here are some details –

Saturday, April 21, 3-6 pm

15 minute sessions, scheduled on the half hour.

These sessions will take place outdoors at Waveny Park in New Canaan.

$30 mini session fee includes 3-5 edited images, online proofing gallery for sharing and print purchasing, and a CD of your high resolution images with full printing rights.

In the event of inclement weather, the mommy & me mini-session will be rescheduled for Sunday, April 22.

We will have a toy tea party set on hand, but feel free to get creative…like I said, I really want this session to be about you and your kids. I’m thinking if it were me, I might bring a blanket and some of my girl’s favorite books, and capture our snuggles and stories. Maybe you want to stop and grab some ice-treats, or bring a special game or toy you love to play together…maybe it means taking a little walk together, or just hanging out being YOU. That is what this is all about, and what I really hope to capture for you.  I can’t wait!

Call us at (203)286-3760 or email Alex at info@alex-christine.com to schedule your session today.  Only 7 slots available!

As if getting to go to the beach in mid March wasn’t awesome enough, I got to spend time with this incredible family and super-cute little miss Sydney.  We headed out to Calf Pasture beach in Norwalk.  The love that Paul & Katie have for each just spills over onto their little princess.  Just perfect.  My favorite part of the shoot?  – catching Sydney’s first taste of sand!
