Connecticut Maternity Photographer | Fairfield County Beach Maternity Session by Kristin Wood Photography

Ah beach maternity sessions make my heart sing. The beach is definitely my happy place, which was a huge selling point when we decided to settle in Darien (with Westport being a close second but the added commute for my husband made Darien the ideal sleepy Connecticut town for us….but I digress). Weed Beach is such a beautiful spot and is always my go-to spot for beach photography sessions.

Maternity photos are often under-rated, but I think they are so important. As a woman, we are only pregnant for a very short time in our life. It is a time that we look forward to and dream about long before it ever happens. We wonder what it will feel like to be growing a little life inside our belly and what we will look like with a bump. It is also a transformative time in your life as a couple. It is the last time it will ever be “just the two” of you. There is so much awe, excitement, and anxiousness being shared between you while you are expecting your baby. I just think it is such a unique and special time in your lives and a time you will always want to look back on and remember. Lastly, your kids will love looking at photos of you when they were in your belly!

This soon-to-be Mama booked a Bump-to-Baby collection which includes the maternity and newborn session. She came to the studio before the session to pick out her dresses. Her husband was so fun and helpful with styling her for the session! I love when husband’s have opinions (mine is almost always right when it comes to what looks best on me and I find that to be the case every time with clients too!). She selected 2 gorgeous maternity dresses from the Client Closet and we headed to the beach for their session!

It was sprinkling when we left my studio, but we made the call to go for it. Once we made the short drive to the beach, it never rained another drop and the sun even came out at the very end of the session! I’m obsessed with these gloomy skies portraits (we get a lot of gloomy weather here so they are fitting for the East Coast! ha!) and how her dress perfectly matched the water.

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.
