Time passes so quickly, and babies grow so fast. Having 4 of my own, I know this all too well.
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.
I’m Amber Sehrt, and I specialize in photographing newborns, growing babies and their families.
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.
“I will look after you and I will look after anybody you say needs to be looked after, any way you say. I am here. I brought my whole self to you. I am your mother.”
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.

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.
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.
I guarantee they will make you fall in love with your little ones all over again.
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.
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.
When you have me photograph your family, I make it simple to get the pictures that are so important to you.
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.
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.
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.
