these are the moments

The smell of your brand new baby. The touch of their skin. Their 10 tiny fingers and 10 tiny toes. The clutch of their hand holding your finger. Right now the days are long, and the nights are even longer. Survival mode from one day to the next. Hoping for more sleep and maybe a laundry fairy.

These are the moments that you'll never get back. The moments that you'll struggle to remember because you were just trying to remember to feed your toddler. The moments that go by too fast because you're trying to survive. Trying to wait for the next milestone. Hoping for more sleep so you can remember the moments. Then one day you look back on some photos, trying to breathe in the moment that they looked like that brand new baby in the picture.

Heather specializes in newborn photography to capture those sweet sleepy moments in the first few weeks of life. Newborn sessions take place at our Newtown CT studio. We have everything you need in a relaxing environment. All you need to bring is your baby!


Family sessions take place outdoors from late spring - fall. Sessions are fun and relaxed. They often move quickly and before you know it we are done! Our goal is to capture everyone's personalities and have fun while doing it.


Colorful and fun! These pet sessions take place in our Newtown, CT studio. Document your puppies first year, or just get fun portraits of your best friend.

As a mom to three kids, I know how quickly the moments pass by. It is because of this that I want to create beautiful images for you and your family that will last generations.

Heather was absolutely amazing for our family of 4 mini session. She is so organized and great with kids. I have a 4 month old and 4 year old and she was able to get amazing shots working with both kids within 15 minutes (a family shot, a shot with kids only, and a shot of each boy). Not to mention my 4 year old had such a blast with the glitter photo shoot. She was also very prompt providing the proof gallery and final proofs. Would definitely recommend her!

Heather’s work is absolutely amazing! ❤️ This was the second time that we have done family photos with her and we were blown away once again. She is so sweet and makes it fun while we are taking photos. And the moments she captures are ones that I am forever grateful for.

We had a Fall Mini Session with Heather and she was absolutely wonderful to work with. She skillfully posed us with our pups who decided photo day was the perfect opportunity to act like hooligans. The location was gorgeous and we hit golden hour at the perfect time. The photos came out better than I could have anticipated! Thank you so much Heather!

We have absolutely fallen in love with Heather's work. She does our Holiday cards every year and every year we get compliments like, "your cards are always my favorite." She has an eye for photography. Heather is exceptional at ensuring we know what to wear (her style guides are a-mazing). During the shoots, she's great at keeping everyone in a picture ready mode (which can be difficult with little ones and puppies). I highly recommend Heather Kelly Photography.
