Baby Jameson – Newborn Photography in Wallingford, CT

I have been lucky enough to cuddle with lots and lots of newborns lately! It seems like all of my clients are having babies, and it is so exciting to see the next generation of Amanda Rose Photography fans come into this world! Just kidding, but I have been super excited by all of the adorable, squishable, loveable babies I get to hold and play with! Jameson is no exception! He is such a cutie pie, and had quite a personality! We got to get some of him alone, and some with his big brother, Dylan and big sister, Madison! What a lucky kid to have two great older siblings that are so proud of their new little brother!







Everybody loves those adorable little newborn yawns! It is always so cute!



Baby Cole – Newborn Photography in Wallingford, CT

Anyone that knows me, knows that I don’t photograph newborns very often…in fact hardly ever! So you know it is a very special baby if they make it up on my blog! I have been fortunate enough to photograph these clients at their wedding and both of their children!

Meet the adorable, squish-able Baby Cole…





And meet his proud big brother, Chad!




And at the end, we gave big brother Chad his own quick time to shine!! Can he be any cuter?? Such a superstar!!



Introducing the newest member of my family…Meet Frankie!

I don’t post my personal photos very often, but since our son Frankie was born, I figured it’s a good excuse to get some new photos up! Our daughter Kyla is now 2 years old and is such a great big sister to her new little brother. She joined us for his photos and it was such a giggly silly time with her “Frankie Boy” as she calls him.
and then a fun little “behind the scenes” outtake from our session. My amazing hubby Frank was helping me with the kids and after Kyla finished, she wanted to give her Frankie Boy a fist bump. Oh how I love all of the funny things kids do!

The Finizio Family – Family Photography in Stratford, CT

I absolutely loved photographing the Finizio family!  When I told the kids that they were so good in front of the camera and I thought they should be supermodels…they informed me that they actually BOTH used to be models when they were babies! Well, I didn’t realize that I was working with seasoned professionals lol. They were just too much fun and were up for anything!

We decided to meet in Boothe Memorial Park in Stratford…so beautiful there!!




The Rodriguez Family – Family photography in Hartford, CT

I absolutely loved working with the Rodriguez family! Each member has a very unique personality and the kids were a hoot! They asked me if they kids could wear traditional Korean outfits for some of the photos, and of course I was super excited!! They were SOOO stinkin’ cute in them! We meet up at Wickham Park in Manchester, CT, in the Oriental Gardens. It was so peaceful and serene, but we brought a whole lot of family fun!






Veronica & Chad – Engagement Session at Wadsworth Falls in Middlefield, CT

Veronica and Chad not only have the most adorable son Chad, Jr., but they are the most adorable couple! They are so madly in love with each other and are fabulous parents! For their engagement session, we headed to scenic Wadsworth Falls in Middlefield, CT where there was plenty of room for Chad to run and play. He was really into all of the rocks and dirt (typical boy). We had a great time capturing them as a family and some special moments of just mom and dad!



Veronica is one Hot Mama!!


I can not wait until their big day in August! It’s going to be a wedding to remember!

Tess and Ryan – Engagement Photography in Wallingford, CT

When Tess and Ryan’s wedding date got moved up, it was all hands on deck to make it happen. We did a really fun engagement session at the new Paradise Hills Vineyard in Wallingford, CT. We had a great time checking out their beautiful location and sipping on some delicious wine!

Meet Sean, the cutest little boy ever!! They are such an adorable family!





Today is Tess and Ryan’s wedding day, and it couldn’t be more perfect out! Be sure to check back for some spectacular images from their big day! Big thanks to Paradise Hills Vineyard for letting us use their ultra exclusive location!

Twins Addison & Emerson – Baby Photography in Wallingford, CT

I recently had the privilege of doing a baby session with these two cutie pies! They each have incredibly different personalities, but are equally as scrumptious! These TWINS stole my heart!!!

Meet the adorable Addison…

and the irresistable Emerson…



Who doesn’t love a baby bum?


I also had the BEST assistants for the day…older brother Noah and older sister Brynn. They were such a big help!



Crerar Family Portrait Session in Cheshire, CT

I had so much fun a few weeks back with the Crerar family! We got to hang in their yard, climb the tree house, play some sports, and explore a local park! It was a lot of fun, and I was so glad I got to tag along!

Meet Ella….and meet Bennett


Even their dog, Jess, got her moment in the spotlight…and then it was mom and dad’s turn!



I absolutely love this quiet moment between mother and son!
