I’m Amber Sehrt, and I specialize in photographing newborns, growing babies and their families.
Enjoy my comfortable, private studio where you can take your time comforting and feeding baby until they’re ready for their closeup! You can also opt for a newborn and family session in the studio or your home to show that close family bond.
Summer is a beautiful time for a family session. While I just LOVE family photo sessions in the fall, that can be a busy time of year for us, given its back to school time. With summer comes a sense of relaxation and a perception of a carefree timeline.
Once fall hits, my schedule gets extremely tight as well. I do have some limited summer sessions left, but time is running out. Contact me soon to book your family session: contact Melissa
When parents have a baby, they want photographs to capture how small and perfect the baby is and how much their love and family have grown.
I’ll guide everyone through natural posing that emphasizes your family’s interactions and relationships with each other. Enjoy a fun and playful experience while we capture meaningful family portraits.
Creating photographs that are important to you, as well as unique, one-of-a-kind art pieces featuring your newborn baby or child.
Feel beautiful and pampered while we create breathtaking images of you and your family. Plan your session in the studio or on location to forever document the gorgeous glow that comes along with the excitement of growing your family.
Time passes so quickly, and babies grow so fast. Having 4 of my own, I know this all too well.
When booking a session with me, do not expect the traditional, “say cheese” type of images. Instead, my goal is to document the raw emotions of you an your loved ones through candid style photography. Please book your newborn session while you are still pregnant to ensure availability.
My approach to newborn and maternity photography is to create photographs that are deeply gentle and full love. I highlight this amazing milestone in your life by creating beautiful photographs and a memorable experience for you and your family.
When was the last time you had your family’s photos take by a professional photographer? It’s absolutely something you should do each and every year. If not, at least every few years. Your kids grow so fast and your love and family changes in many ways too! I love helping families pick out their wardrobe as we discuss their session beforehand.
The planning for the big day is so fun, but the session itself is that much more fun, as we will sing, run, laugh, play snuggle and just be. There are no phones to distract you. No homework or baseball practice.
Just about an hour in a field at sunset. To be with your family. Uninterrupted. This sweet little family of three is just so in love with their 6 month old baby girl and their love for her and each other just radiates through these images.
Mom and dad were just beaming at each and every little thing their baby did. And how can you not? Just look at her! Bri and Rob came to me for their maternity session last summer as well as their newborn session in September.
It’s always such an honor to have clients come back to you again and again. Thank you! If you are interested in booking a family session this year, do not wait much longer. I am almost fully booked for summer and I have a few remaining spots left for the fall.

Masterful Newborn & Maternity Photography Studio in Hartford, CT
As a professional photographer and mother of four, every session feels personal and momentous. Our time photographing your family as they grow produces extraordinary heirlooms and artwork that is uniquely your own.
It’s that time of year. The weather is turning warm and pleasant, the sun is shining, and it feels amazing to be outdoors. Each Fall I get crazy busy with family sessions. Fall is a busy time because many families start thinking about updating their yearly family images and especially want some gorgeous images for their Christmas cards.
Beat that Fall rush and book your family session NOW! A summer or early fall outdoor session is a beautiful way to get your family dressed up and together and to spend a little undistributed time together.
I have VERY limited dates left for the summer. Contact me now for more info on getting your family booked: CONTACT When was the last time you had your family photos taken?
Newborn photographs can be created any time before your baby turns 6 weeks old. However, the ideal time for your newborn session to take place is in the first 14 days after your baby’s birth. At this stage, they’re still sleepy and flexible enough for those epic newborn poses.
I guarantee they will make you fall in love with your little ones all over again.
At One Big Happy Photo, I offer a luxury experience for your maternity, newborn, and family portraits out of my comfortable portrait studio in Glastonbury, CT.
When you have me photograph your family, I make it simple to get the pictures that are so important to you.
From the moment your new baby enters the world, it’s hard to look away from their sweet face. You know they won’t stay this little long, but those adorable newborn portraits will always remind you to hold on those moments as your baby continues to grow.
Exclusive to mothers-to-be that are planning their newborn’s session in the studio, I offer a special maternity photo shoot to celebrate the beautiful time spent waiting for your new baby.
