First Birthday Session

Baby Girl’s First Birthday Photoshoot | Fairfield County, CT

I cannot believe it’s already time to share this baby girl’s first birthday photoshoot with you! It feels like we were just photographing Harper’s newborn session in her nursery, and here she is standing up and turning ONE! If you missed her 6-month milestone session, you can catch up here!

When a KWP baby graduates from the first-year collective, it’s always a little bittersweet! We do 3-4 sessions together over the course of their first year and I have to admit, I tend to get attached to these babies and their parents. And while most of my clients continue with their annual family photos, there is just something extra special about that first year!

To wrap up Harper’s first year, we did a session in the studio. Now that the secret is out, I can share that this is one of my last sessions in my current studio. We are moving to Westport! But more on that later!

Harper may only be one, but she already has style! We started her session with the most precious little white onesie with delicate details. After that, was a little tulle dress…because what little girl doesn’t need tulle to celebrate their birthday?! We finished up with a little knit romper and a couple of bonnets…and you guys, she couldn’t have been more precious!

Is it even a first birthday photoshoot without finishing up with a cake smash?! Next to documenting their sweet little faces, this may be one of my favorite parts. It’s always so unpredictable- some babies will love it, some hate it and some are just totally confused.

If you’re going to do a cake smash, I recommend keeping the cake small and neutral. It will photograph best and also be less overwhelming to them. And remember, it’s totally okay for them to respond however they do. I promise, no matter their reaction it always makes for great photos!

Without further ado, the birthday girl, Harper!

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.
