Welcome Ben! A Baby Boy Model Session

Welcome Ben to your baby boy model session!

I put out a call for newborn models a couple of weeks ago because I had a couple of things I wanted to photograph for an upcoming blog post about Newborn Studio Sessions. I was overwhelmed by the responses I got and booked in a couple of boys (my unscientific poll revealed that there were twice as many boys born in February than girls) and I have a baby girl on the way. Thank you to everyone who contacted me – I wish I could have invited everyone in to the studio!

Ben was one of those babies that has a very knowing face. He had actually taken his longest nap EVER in the short history of his life on the morning of our session so he had his eyes open in almost all of his images! Luckily he was mellow and as cute as a button and he followed me with those knowing eyes and watched everything I did. Maybe one day he will become a newborn photographer and remember his own experience well…..

A huge thank-you to Ben’s Mom for bringing him over on a crazy cold day. She was super fun to chat with and we talked about how different it is with baby number 2! She seemed pretty relaxed – although I have to say I may have to hire her to organize my closets – she had the most organized diaper bag I had ever seen!

There will be more of cute Ben and his amazing hair but here is a sneak peek.

Love, Janet xo

Family Studio Photographer – Sitting Session

Family Studio Photographer – Sitting Milestone Session for this beautiful baby girl

Check out those incredible big blue eyes….

Family Photographer sitting sessionFamily Photographer sitting sessionFamily Photographer sitting sessionThere is something so incredibly cute and special about the sitting stage. You feel as if you can see the baby in a whole different way – they hold their head up high and their personality can shine in a totally new way!

This was a very special little girl with a twinkle in her eye.  I offer the sitting session as an individual shoot or as part of the Milestone Package:


Choose up to 3 sessions from the following momentous baby milestones. The perfect gift for a new family.

Choose the package that best suits your needs for each milestone session. When the three sessions are complete I will design a 10×10 lay flat press printed book with your favorite images from each session as my first birthday gift to your family.

Maternity | Newborn | Smiling | Sitting |Cake Smash

The approximate recommended ages for each are:

Around 7-8 months pregnant | Under 12 days | 3 months | 6 months | 12-14 months


New Milford Photographer – Brody!

New Milford Photographer – Brody Sitting Session!

Brody is a mellow dude, so of course we had fun taking some shots of him sitting and playing in the studio. His big sister Avery was on hand to help out and we had a little assisted walk around outside because it was such a beautiful day. He is mobile in a big way now, so next time won’t be quite as easy! Avery and my daughter Olivia have been friends since Kindergarden and they are already planning Brody’s 1st birthday celebration shoot. I am sure they have a pinterest board in the making with brain storming ideas for cakes and decorations so stay tuned for images of that!

Brody was around 7 months when we did this session and he was about 10 days old when I did newborn photos of him. I think it is clear that it is the same child but isn’t that blond hair amazing now – what a cutie! Next time you see Amber then check out an image she has of Avery at around the same age …….. twins!!!

If you are thinking of doing a milestone package then you still have the flexibility to choose a good time for your child – they are all very different! The sitting but not crawling phase can be oh so very short for some, but it does provide some great opportunities for portraits. My son Sam was content to sit for months (as long as we passed him toys and generally kept him entertained). Olivia on the other hand was in a rush to get to the next phase – she seemed to sit still for a day or two and then moved on to crawling!

These stages are so fleeting and it is so important to capture them all while you can.

We love you Brodster!

CT Newborn Photographer – a precious little girl

CT Newborn Photographer – a precious little girl

Some babies are just born beautiful. This is most definitely one of the most beautiful baby girls you could imagine.

She was so alert. her clear blue eyes watched me as I took my photos with a wisdom and understanding that was uncanny in a newborn. She is destined for great things I am sure.

“Let her sleep for when she wakes she will move mountains”

I like to hold newborn sessions in my studio – I keep it a “balmy” 85 degrees and I have all the props on hand to make the session go as smooth as possible. You get to relax while I create images of your baby. Ideally we would schedule the shoot between 4 and 10 days but all babies are different and there really is no magic formula. Growth spurts and cluster feedings happen during those first few weeks so we work around them. Sessions are baby led and can take anywhere from 2-3 hours.



CT Photographer Danbury CT – It’s Twins!!!!

CT Photographer at Tarrywile Park in Danbury CT Twins!!!!

A client called me and said she wanted to do a family shoot to announce that she is having twins – do you know how excited I was?!?

Ashley and James did their first session a couple of years ago and they were back for a birthday session for Gigi earlier this year, so it felt like we were just hanging out and catching up on everything that has been going on. Ashley and Gigi had the poses down, the accessories and their outfits were spot on and Stacey from Blush Couture had met with Ashley to make her feel extra pretty and ready to make the announcement of their lives! TWINS!

They are going to be great parents and Gigi will be an awesome big sister. I can not wait to meet the babies. We’ll just have to wait and see if they are boys or girls or maybe one of each!

Photographer – Orange CT

Family Photographer – Orange CT

This cheeky little guy from Ohio is visiting his cousins in Connecticut. Wesley is having a blast hanging with his family and playing with the dogs, although I heard the haircut probably won’t be making his top ten favorites list……

The fall is a perfect time for family photos. The light is spectacular and it is so nice to not be suffering from the crazy summer humidity!!!

New Milford Family Photographer – At Hunt Hill Farm (the Silo)

I thought I was busy with two children!!! We have been trying to schedule this shoot since the spring but this family has some talented athletes and soccer championship games seemed to appear every time we made a plan to get together! The stars aligned this past weekend though and it was worth the wait.

Hunt Hill Farm in New Milford was the perfect backdrop for our session and there was some nice shade from the record breaking Connecticut fall temperatures. The kids were great and I was bowled over by the joy and love they share for their youngest brother Conner. I am sure there are days when they don’t all get along 🙂 but they were a great bunch of kids and an absolute credit to their parents. There are more to come but here is a little taste of this wonderful local family.

Conner was fascinated by the lens on my camera and kept trying to look into it!
