milford ct | baby calliope 9 days new | newborn photography

Baby Calliope had the most amazing head of hair. She was 9 days new when she traveled from her home in Milford CT, to my Newtown CT newborn studio with her big sister and parents. Even though Calliope’s mom told me via email that she had a lot of hair, I couldn’t believe how much! Her jet black hair amazing, as well as her beautiful eyes.

Milford CT: Baby Calliope 9 days new

Calliope was 6 lb 10 oz at birth and as you can see born with a full head of hair. There were no hats put on her during her newborn session. Just some headbands as there was no way I could cover up that gorgeous hair!

Family of Four

From a family of three to a family of four. I love capturing the love of a new growing family. While the days are long, and the nights are longer, I love being able to give families images like this. One day when their kids are grown, and perhaps moms of their own, they will be able to look back on these images. I absolutely love the photographs I have of myself as a baby with my parents and would have loved to have ones like these.

Shades of purple, pink with pops of yellow & teal

I love mix and matching colors and especially adding pops of color! The main colors in Calliope’s session were purple and pink. We also added some accent colors of yellow and teal. Such a girly and beautiful newborn session. Calliope was a dream and only had her eyes open in the very beginning and the very end.

Alert Newborn

OK, so while my prep information has helpful tips to make sure you have a sleepy little one….. I love happy and alert newborns. Key word – happy ;). This face of Calliope’s just cracks me up!
