Choosing the Right Photographer | Connecticut Family Photographer Kristin Wood

 You have probably opened quite a few websites today and are wondering what all of the
differences are in professional photographers & how to find the best one for YOU!

Here are a few tips!



Does their style match what you are looking for?  The best photographer in your city may be just that, but if you don’t love what they do & how they do it, you may not be completely satisfied.  Alternatively, if you love a photographer’s style, asking them to change various things for your session can result in a very different outcome from what you see in their portfolio.  Is there a photographer with a style your heart instantly falls in love with?

Key Point:  If you love a photographer’s work, allow them to have creative control to achieve the same for you.



What kind of artwork are you hoping to end up with after your session?   Does your home have wall space in which you would like to walk by your portraits multiple times a day and enjoy a few of your favorites? Would your kids adore seeing their mom or dad snuggling them hung up in their bedroom?  Do you want the entire story of your session in an album to sit down as a family and flip through as the years go by?  Whatever products you love, make sure your photographer offers the best in those items.  Photographers often test out multiple vendors looking for just the right items to incorporate to their product line.

Key Point:  Make sure you love what your photographer offers to their clients & makes it easy for you to decide on those items.



Who will help you with clothing? Do you prefer a photographer to make recommendations, help you shop online, provide clothing for your family, or be hands off completely with clothing? If you don’t know what to wear that will look best together, best in photos, and most flattering, hiring a photographer that helps can be a relief.

Key Point:  If you don’t know what to wear search for a photographer that can style your family.

My Story

Hi, I’m Kristin.

I’m a hardworking mama, just like you, except my babies are getting older now. I’ve got a perspective that I only I wish I had when they were little. I’ve got regrets. I didn’t know just how fast it would all go. And now my mission is to save other moms from those same regrets. 

I am your family’s photographer, your new mom friend, your personal stylist, your pampering coordinator, and your memory keeper.  

Over the last 6 years, I’ve served tons of mamas, rocked 100s of babies, and wrangled 1000s of toddlers creating magic for families spread across Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Vermont. And I'd be honored to do the same for you.

Let’s start documenting your baby’s story!

We take a limited number of families each year to make sure each Mama gets all the love attention she deserves. Contact us today to check availability for your baby's First Year Collective or portrait session.
