2022 Year Review | Connecticut Portrait Photographer

2022 Year review. Wow, what a year 2022 was. The past couple of years were extremely challenging, as it was for many. Going from my business being over 50% newborns, to a pandemic where that part of my business pretty much died off was difficult. There was a time where I wondered if I should convert my studio back into a family area and no longer do studio work. I considered giving up photography entirely. Looked into getting a 9-5 job.

I am so grateful for each and every one of my new parents that entrusted me with photographing their brand new baby. I don’t take it for granted how lucky I am that this is my job. Thank you so much for choosing me as your CT portrait photographer.

2022 Year Review

Connecticut Portrait Photographer

Winter sessions mean cozy studio sessions. I’m currently booking 2023 newborns, maternity, cake smash and baby session. Oh and don’t forget headshots!

CT Newborn Photographer

The recommended time to book your newborn photo session is during your pregnancy. I take a limited number of sessions a month so pre-booking will guarantee availability. Now booking 2024 due dates! Sessions take place 6 – 16 days after birth so it is best to book early and get penciled in. The actual date of the session will be scheduled once your little one arrives.

While the studio is all set up, you can relax while your precious baby is taken care of. I will change diapers, soothe your baby to sleep while I gently pose them.

Looking for more information? To book a session, fill out the contact form. I will then send you all the details about my newborn sessions. If you choose to book, it can all be done online!

Cake Smash Photography CT | first birthday

Cake smash sessions are a great keepsake for your baby’s first birthday! Contact us today to schedule your session!

Sessions take place at my residential studio in Newtown, CT. Everything is set up prior to your arrival and the mess stays with me! Cake smash sessions are custom designed based on your colors and theme. There are two different session types to choose from. One is just a simple cake smash, and the other is more elaborate and also has two different backdrops.

It is best to book your session at least 4 weeks in advance for planning purposes. However, if it’s less time than that, don’t worry, reach out and we’ll see what we can do. I am often able to squeeze in extra sessions.
