Madelyn ~ CT Newborn Photographer | Rocky Hill, CT

newborn baby girl sleeping on teal blue with her teddy bearThe timing couldn’t have been better for this family. Madelyn’s mom contacted me about newborn photography a little more than a month before she was due to see if I could photograph her soon-to-arrive newborn daughter. And literally the morning that we firmed everything up, her water broke and Madelyn was on her way. She was a little over 3 weeks early but fully “baked” and arrived absolutely perfect!

You would never have guessed he was only two-and-a half years old because he was so content to watch everything and participate as soon as he was asked.

Those tiny fingers and gorgeous lips made me want to cuddle her all day long.

Dad holding his newborn daughter against his chestWe had to do a few takes when it came time to Dad’s turn for newborn photographs with his new daughter. Madelyn kept trying to “christen” him. But he was very quick on his feet, both times, and we only had to clean up the floor. It’s always a “danger” when you pose a naked baby with the parents, but this touching image made it all worth it.

She had grown so much in a few short weeks, so I’m glad I was able to create these heirloom photographs for her family. Now, each year on her birthday or whenever they are feeling nostalgic, they can look back at her newborn photographs to see just how small she once was.

If you would like to have your newborn photographed along with your family, contact me today. I am currently taking limited bookings from October – December of 2017.
