Petite Personality Portraits - New Haven Family Photography

As a newborn photographer, it isn't lost on my how important my job is. Documenting you babies feet, rolls, cow-lick and cheeky grin are images that you will cherish forever. As a mom of three growing boys, I can't believe how much they grow and change. I can't think of any good reason why a newborn session would be any more important then a first birthday cake smash, or a 5th birthday, or just losing a first tooth!

I have a special session just right for these petite portraits, I call it my Simplicity Session, and you can find more info here.

It is scaled down session, perfect for mommy & me, or just the kiddo(s).

Meet sweet Kaliana! She has SO much personality! She is the perfect spokes kid for these Personality portraits! And did you know that framing your child's portraits and displaying them can actually increase their confidence? Here's a link to an article about this.

I believe it, whole-heartedly! My boys love seeing their pictures, whether it's on my phone or computer, but ESPECIALLY when it's framed and hung for display. It shows how valuable and important that particular image is.

Could you just image how sweet these images would look on your walls?
