Trying to plan a session around tree blossoms can be quite the challenge. You never know exactly when they will bloom and how long they will stay open for. Pair that with unpredictable NY weather, you may only have a handful of days you can schedule your session on. With Christine Covino and her family, we did it! It may have been cold, windy and maybe even rainy for a hot second, but we got them done! And, fortunately, they had a steamy greenhouse on her family farm’s property to warm up in. Hope you all love browsing through these images as much as I do!
There is something special about having your newborn session in the home you first bring your baby home to. The majority of the homes that I photograph families in will not be their forever home. It is a great way to not only have great photographic memories from those first few weeks or months, but also in a home extra special to them.
This family is no exception. Although a big move outside of NYC was creeping up on them, they wanted to capture their daughter’s first few weeks in their light filled apartment in Manhattan. I absolutely loved this session (hello beautiful sunshine) and watching these two parents glow whenever they looked at their newborn daughter.

While the majority of my portrait sessions take place in NY and NJ, this year I have multiple shoots in the beautiful state of Connecticut. I can’t say I am disappointed at all. The first of my CT portrait sessions is a family I have had the pleasure of photographing twice before. Once for their first maternity session in NJ and, again, when their daughter was half a year old. It is always such a treat to work with them. Yes, their style is always on point, but more importantly they are the kindest and most welcoming family. I loved getting to document Pia’s continuing love for her dog, Bear.
I hope you enjoy viewing their second maternity sessions as much as I loved photographing it. I can’t wait to meet their little one later this year for a coastal Connecticut family session.
