MIlestone Session

First Birthday Cake Smash at Waveny Park in New Canaan, CT

We all blinked and somehow Olivia is already celebrating her first birthday. It’s been so fun watching her grow from the time she was in her momma’s tummy (check out their beautiful Weed Beach maternity session) to her in-home newborn session, and now her first birthday! I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than with a first birthday cake smash at Waveny Park in New Canaan.

One of my favorite things to do after a first birthday session is to pull a newborn photo and put them side by side with the first year photo. It’s always a lot of fun to see how they have grown and changed over the year (and also a little bittersweet because time… it really does go SO fast).

Olivia loved to stick her tongue out at me, play airplane with Mom + Dad, and humored us all with the cake eating part of her first birthday session. I never know how babies will respond to the cake smash – some love it, some hate it, and some are just confused. Either way, it’s all pretty hilarious and so much fun to photograph.

Happy Birthday, Olivia!

We designed a beautiful wall gallery that we will grow with over time as their family grows. Being able to fully serve my clients from start to finish is something I’m really proud of. And I am not just talking about a single session, but over multiple sessions – years even!

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.
