Maternity Session

Sunset Maternity Session at Sherwood Island State Park | Westport, CT

I absolutely adore this beautiful mama and her sweet family. They have been the most loyal clients, celebrated with me as I opened up the studio in Westport, and trust me to document their most cherished memories. I am so thankful we were able to photograph their sunset maternity session at Sherwood Island State Park.

This was not just any beach maternity session. It was particularly special to Bayley because they didn’t get to do a maternity session with their son, Brayden. We had it scheduled but then he came six weeks early. So documenting this pregnancy and really soaking up these final moments as a family of three was really important to her.

Maternity Session with Toddler at the Beach

It was a super windy night but that was not going to steal their joy and excitement! We started over by the rocks, which is always a hit with the toddlers! Sometimes they can be a little headstrong…they know what they want to do and it usually has nothing to do with taking photos! Add to it that they are at the beach and they basically want nothing to do with participating in a photoshoot.

But over the years I’ve learned that you just have to keep them moving and engaging with their parents. Toddlers love to play games with their mom and Dad and honestly, it’s such a fun age to document. Not to mention, life is really about to change for this little guy, so having a little fun on the beach with him was the perfect way to celebrate and remember this stage.

Wardrobe + Hair and Makeup + Gallery Wall

Bayley came in a couple of weeks prior to their maternity session for her styling appointment. I am so excited that we are able to offer these in-person in the studio in Westport again. It makes it so much easier and honestly just a lot of fun!

Then, on the day of the session, Bayley had her hair and makeup done by Angelina before heading over to Sherwood Island State Park for their sunset maternity session. Our team of artists really do an amazing job of pampering moms and making them feel as beautiful as they are.

After the session, we did their reveal and started designing a large gallery wall. It will include Brayden, baby’s first year, and even a wedding photo of Mom and Dad. This gallery wall will be more than pretty photos- it will be their family’s story and I’m just so honored to do this for them.

I am already counting down the days until I get to meet their sweet boy. In fact, he just made his arrival and we’ll be doing his newborn session in the studio soon!

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.
