Avery was just over 6 lbs at birth and soooo tiny during her newborn session. The quote "and although she be but little she is fierce" comes to mind when I think of miss Avery. She was so sweet during her session and slept wonderfully, letting me pose her.
I met Avery's parents a couple of months prior during a maternity session - I love spending some time with the parents ahead of their newborn sessions. It really helps to get to know one another and feel comfortable by the time the newborn session comes around.
Along with Avery, mom and dad brought big brother Andrew who was absolutely amazing with his new baby sister. He was gentle and such a ham! At just over 9 years old, he was already so smitten with baby Avery.

About the photographer:
A little about me: I am Kat of Catherine King Photography, a CT newborn photographer located on the shoreline. I am a wife and a mother to two active girls (as well as a mom to a very rowdy Yorkie and recently an even more energetic Boxer pup). I love shoes, wine, and gorgeous sunsets beachside.
My Madison, CT in-home studio is set up with studio lighting - I use an Alien Bee 400 with a 60 inch Octagon Softbox. I have a Canon D Mark iii and my go-to lenses for newborn sessions are my Canon 50 1.2, Sigma 35 1.4, and Sigma 105 2.8. Although I do occasionally fall back to my Canon 24-70 2.8 for some larger families.
