* Newborn Sessions *

We were there to celebrate and document the happiness of their engagement and lucky enough to stand by their sides and capture the beautiful moments as they became husband and wife on their wedding day. Now to be with them as they enter the exciting new chapter of parenthood with their sweet little one has been nothing short of a m a z i n g. To be welcomed into their homes during this beautifully tender time is truly such an honor. I look back at that time in our lives when our son was just born with such unexplainable happiness and will always treasure when we became a family of three! There is such an indescribable joy that comes when photographing a growing family and life at the very beginning... 
 
To all of the couples who continue to open their hearts and homes to us, saying "thank you" doesn't seem even sufficient to explain the gratefulness we feel. What an honor it has been to document the beginning of your growing families!

Garden Maternity Session | Kelly & Tim

I met Kelly and Tim years ago at a friends wedding we were photographing, then our paths crossed again when they got engaged and were in the beginning phases of wedding dreaming and planning. Over the years I have had the honor of photographing Kelly & Tim's engagement session and then their spectacular and sweet wedding! So you can only imagine my joy spending time with and photographing these two again last week, talking alllll about their baby girl on the way! About their excitement to finally meet her. To see what she looks like. To witness her little personality bloom and be in awe of everything she does. To hold her, kiss her, rock her to sleep and love her with their whole hearts and then some. Oh this sweet daughter of theirs is already loved by so many who are anxiously waiting to meet her! Including me - I can't wait!  
 
I am so humbled and grateful that I am invited to document our couples' milestones and to celebrate with them and their loved ones their relationship, marriage and growing families. It doesn't get any sweeter for the soul then that. Truly. <3 
 
Here are a few of my favs from Kelly & Tim's garden maternity session! And can we start by talking about how amazing this mama to be looks?! Glowing.

Boho CT Maternity Session | Maryla & Peppe

Oh this sweet baby on the way is seriously one lucky little one! With a dad who has the kindest heart and is one of the hardest working people you will ever meet to a mama who is beautiful inside and out and an uber talented wedding planner and creative, it's safe to say sweet baby has some seriously awesome parents! What an honor it was for me to hang out with Maryla and Peppe and document this special and exciting time... this time when their chapter as a family of two is coming to a close and a fresh new chapter as parents to one and family of three is about to begin. Oh to see their joyful anticipation and hear that laughter, you know, the laughter that comes from straight from the soul and just overflows. What a gift it was to witness such happiness and celebrate this time with these friends of ours! 
 
Loved every second of their gorgeous boho maternity session! Here are a few of my favorites... :)

Connecticut Newborn Session Baby Lucy

Connecticut Newborn Session Baby Lucy

As they looked down at their baby girl Lucy, you could tell a part of them could hardly believe she was here... hardly believe the wait to meet her was over and couldn't believe their eyes as they held her in their arms and soaked her in. This sweet bundle of perfection had stolen their hearts and left them amazed and overflowing with a love they couldn't quite put into words. 
 
Watching Ashley and Lou with their 2 week old daughter Lucy in their home was such a beautiful thing to see and witness. There is a fierce love and bond that comes with becoming parents, a love that leaves you knowing your life will never be the same and with the knowledge that a piece of your heart now lives outside of yourself. What a beautiful love indeed. 
 
Ashley & Lou, I can't begin to tell you what an honor it was to meet Lucy and to just see the two of you with her... It was a morning filled with tender and sweet moments that I will always hold dear. Your girls are truly lucky to have such loving, caring and amazing parents! Thank you for inviting me to document another milestone in your lives!

Connecticut Newborn Session Baby Everly

There is no two ways about it, sweet baby Everly is a true miracle. Her story and the challenges she faced to fight for her life is a testament to God's amazing grace, her sheer will, her parent's and family's love and hope, and compassionate medical personal. Everly Faith was born at 25 weeks due to difficulties Kaitlyn had after an unforeseen seizure, born weighing a mere 1 lb 6 oz. Kaitlyn and Mark were told over and over again that Everly would not survive, yet here she is. Here she is after facing countless surgeries, many procedures, and unfathomable uphill battles. After 171 days in the NICU, she finally got to go home with her parents. She proved to all those who said she wouldn't make it that she is a fighter and a miracle through and through. This bright eyed spunky girl is perfection. 
 
I met Kaitlyn and Mark together over three years ago when they inquired about having us photograph their wedding. I knew then and there that there was something different about these two. I distinctly remember telling Chris after the consultation that we just HAD to shoot their wedding! Anyone who knows these two, knows that they are special. They are one of the kindest, compassionate, loving couples you will ever meet and the most perfect parents for Everly. They have fought tirelessly for her, never giving up on their baby girl even when there seemed to be little hope. There has been sacrifice upon sacrifice, tears and hugs, deep breaths, sleepless nights, scary days, and moments that took big courage. But these two have never wavered in their love and faith in their baby. So to photograph Kaitlyn and Mark beaming as their held Everly in her nursery was... everything. It was pink ruffles upon ruffles, tiny toes, and eyelashes for days! What an honor it was to meet Miss Everly Faith!  
 
I am so grateful for how open Kaitlyn and Mark have been about their journey with Everly as it has deeply inspired so many people, including myself. I can't even begin to put into words for what it meant to me to be able to photograph this amazing family of three... these sweet parents... this bright eyed beautiful miracle who is so incredibly loved.<3
