looking for ct newborn photographer to capture your precious new baby?  do you want a professional photographer that is flexible and experienced?  you found us.


Congratulations to you and your family!

Catherine King photography is a fine art ct newborn photographer specializing in studio baby photography.  We are based in Madison, CT and serve New Haven county, Middlesex county, New London county, as well as nearby areas including CT, RI, NJ, NY, and MA.

Choosing a photographer for your precious little bundle should be something that you consider carefully.  Your baby (or babies!) will only be a newborn for a short time, so you need to be confident that you chose the right photographer for your needs.  Here are a few things to consider:

  • Flexibility – Will the photographer be flexible with me?  What happens if the baby comes early or late?  What if the baby is fussy and our shoot takes longer than expected?
  • Safety & Comfort – Will the photographer know what they’re doing with a newborn?  Do they know all the safety precautions?  Do they know how to get the baby to fall asleep?  Will the photographer be able to get my camera-shy older child/partner/self to enjoy the experience?
  • Finished Product – Do I like the photographs taken by this photographer?  Will I get access to my images quickly enough to send out birth announcements?  Will I have flexibility in choosing digital images and wall displays?

To help you decide if I meet your needs, allow me to tell you a little about my newborn shoots, my methodology, and myself.

I am a mom myself and have been photographing newborns for over 5 years.  Along with experience as a mom and a newborn photographer, I’ve gained a lot of skills that help me get your baby to sleep well, to pose them in a way that will look natural and peaceful, and take the most care in the safety of your newborn.

No two newborns are identical (even identical twins!) and neither are any of my newborn shoots.   I will take the time to get to know you and what you are looking for from your shoot. Our process includes consultation time where we will get a chance to meet each other and allow me to get to know your goals and wishes for your session, as well as spend some time going over any questions that you may have.  Throughout our interactions I make sure that you are comfortable with me and our plan for your shoot.  If you book a maternity session with your newborn shoot (something I recommend to all my clients), we will have a chance to really get to know one another and gain confidence for the newborn shoot.  Although I always have a plan, props, and a process that I like to follow, each newborn shoot is tailored to you and your baby.  Your newborn is in charge, and I take cues from them; if I notice that your baby has a preference toward a pose or a prop I will adjust the plan.

I am flexible and although I always recommend the “best” window of 5-15 days after birth for your shoot, I will work with you and your family.  In order to accommodate all of my clients with the flexibility and attention to their specific needs, I only book a limited number of newborn photo sessions per month.  This means that we are flexible in timelines, can accommodate changes in plans if there are emergencies, and that you will receive your photos in a timely (dare I even say quick) manner.

The studio is in Madison, CT and I have everything you may need during your session on hand.  From sweet little headbands, adorable hats, or a dress for mom to snacks.  All you have to worry about is getting there and then sitting back and relaxing.
