Baby Alex's First Birthday Cakesmash - Fairfield County, CT Photography

Alex's mom is the insanely talented lead photographer behind Alicia Ann Photographers, one of Connecticut's leading photography studios.  I have been a long-time huge fan of her work, and was incredibly flattered (and honestly, nervous!) when we decided to work together.   As that first birthday approached, she decided that she wanted some first birthday portraits of her firstborn, Alex.  While she decided whether or not she wanted to do a cake smash, I reminded her that your baby only turns one once.  So despite the fact that a cakesmash is very different than her typical photographic style, she quickly agreed. :)  We started with some classic and organic ...

Logan and Wyatt's Twin Fresh 48 Session - Stamford, CT Newborn Photography

Baby Alex's First Birthday Cakesmash - Fairfield County, CT Photography

Fresh 48 sessions are just so special and unique.  They really couldn't be more different than the posed newborn sessions I often do, but they are a wonderful complement.  They are meant to be raw, intimate, and imperfect capturing those first few hours together as a family.  If you've had kids you know those first days are such a blur because you are overwhelmed, tired, and juggling nurses and visitors.  But much like photographs or videos from your wedding, these pictures allow you to relive the joy of the day for the rest of your life and to continue to notice new details. You may remember Sierra and Bill from their infamous Tappan Zee Bridge Maternity ...

Baby Alex's First Birthday Cakesmash - Fairfield County, CT Photography

I don't often find the time to blog too much during the busy fall rush, but I made sure to find the time for this session!  This was just the sweetest little family, and mom and dad knocked the styling out of the park.  I loved this gallery so much, and thought it might serve as great inspiration for other families about to do their holiday family pictures. We used one of my favorite locations that has holiday-esque pine trees as well as lots of areas offering a more fall backdrop.   We had so much fun tickling, playing tag, throwing leaves, and occasionally sneaking in a posed picture when nobody was expecting it.  Scroll through this gorgeous gallery and ...

Baby Alex's First Birthday Cakesmash - Fairfield County, CT Photography

Violet may look familiar to you, as she has been quite a 'regular' this year at Stefanie Cole Photography.  I absolutely love when my newborn clients come back for sitter and birthday sessions.  I truly enjoy planning these coordinating sessions, and always get a kick out of how fast these kids grow! Violet has so much spunk, is absolutely full of personality, and is pretty daring (walking at 11 months...woah!).  I can't imagine where she gets those traits from, but she has been so much fun to get to know and I've loved getting to stay in touch with her parents and grandparents too through these photoshoots. Happy birthday, sweet Violet.  Now, go enjoy that ...
