Back to Blogging with Newborn Baby M- Newborn Photographer West Hartford, CT

For those of you who follow my blog, you probably already know that I am not a very consistent blogger…I disappear every year for several months and don’t post a single thing between November to late February. This is not probably a great thing to do if one keeps a blog. However, I find that the additional work of the blog takes a backseat to the hectic pace of late fall and the rush to get out holiday photos to my clients. Then, once the crazy fall rush is over, family time becomes my number one focus throughout the winter months. As a result, I end up disappearing for my own personal hibernation period. Though I am still shooting head shots, newborn sessions, and cake smash sessions during the winter months, the lack of family sessions due to the cold, snowy weather makes for lots of extra time for relaxing, reflecting, and preparing for the new year. However, it is always right around mid to late February that I get that get the itch to get back to blogging and preparing for the upcoming spring portrait season. It is February 24th….and today is the day:-)

So as of right now, I am officially back….and I will start my 2015 posts with a favorite family that I’ve worked with for a few years now. They just had their second, beautiful little girl, so we met up for a newborn/family session at my home studio last week. Here are few of my favorites from our session:

One Year Later…the 1st Birthday Cake Smash- Baby Photographer West Hartford, CT

About a year ago, I had two awesome photo shoots, both maternity and newborn, with a super sweet couple having their first baby! Now it is a year later and we came back  together into the studio to shoot their little one’s 1st birthday cake smash!! He was really fun to photograph and we had a blast watching him squish and devour the ENTIRE birthday cake. He did it with a very serious look on his face too! So adorable….here are a few of my favorites from our session:

Baby C and the Stork- Newborn Baby Photographer West Hartford, CT

This session is a perfect example of how well newborn photos can turn out, even if the baby gets a little fussy about being changed and moved around for photos. This little guy did not like be unwrapped or laid down to sleep without being held. He much preferred being swaddled and snuggled, which I really can’t blame him on that one! But with a little creativity and patience, we were able to settle him down and set him up so that we could get all those great shots we wanted in between the times of crying. So no worries new moms! You can still get beautiful photos even if your baby cries or gets fussy. Here are a few of my favorites from the gorgeous Baby’s C’s session:

Baseball Baby- Newborn Photographer, Hartford CT

A few weeks ago, I shot a newborn session with a brand new little boy and his parents at my home studio. It took a little time and a lot of snuggling to get him to settle in for some sleeping shots, but we were able to get everything we needed during our session and then some. I am so pleased with how these photos came out and I especially love the little “unposed” candid of him just hanging out with his binky while sitting in his mommy’s lap. Sometimes the shots in between are the ones that I end up loving the most. They are perfect in their little imperfection:)
