Keeping your family safe while capturing the magic of your one-year-old is my mission. As the "new normal" sets in I'm adjusting my sessions to maximize peace of mind while still providing images of joy and love. 

 Outdoor Contactless First Birthday Sessions

More on New Safety Measures

And just like that your baby is one!

And just like that your baby is one...

How it Works

We will schedule an outdoor session either in your front or backyard. A shaded area of your yard will be necessary. Or if parks are open and are a safe option we can book at another outdoor location.


My long lens allows me to get amazing shots with ten or more feet between us, keeping proper social distancing in place. My stylish face mask and hand sanitizer will be handy as well. 


For added safety, these sessions will be contactless meaning I will be relying on parents to pose baby and older children. Since my posing is natural in nature anyway this should be pretty easy. 


A signed contract and deposit reserves your spot.  An online gallery of hi-res images will be delivered within two weeks of session. Props such as cake and balloons are welcome, but need to be provided by client. 


Outdoor First Birthday session Includes:

Pre-session consultation via phone to go over details and prepwork.

Private outdoor session at your home (front or back yard) or safe, outdoor park.

Online gallery with 15 hi-res fully edited images for downloading and personal printing rights. Yes, digitals are included!

Access to order  high quality photo products through my professional labs including gift prints for family, framed wall art, canvas wraps, albums and more. All products are additional in cost. 



"Katie took my daughter's 1st birthday photos. My daughter was not very happy that day and Katie was absolutely wonderful with her. She was patient and sweet, and through the tears and everything, she captured the most stunning photos that showcased my daughter exactly as she is all the time with us. Everyone that sees the pictures she has taken always raves about them, highly highly recommend her work!"

What Other Moms are Saying

I understand that the world we are now living in has changed. But please note that my commitment to providing safe photography sessions has not. If anyone in my family or myself is not feeling well I will postpone the session. I am a mother first and foremost and value and honor acting in a way I'd hope someone would treat my family--the "mom code" if you will.

Katie Pugliese Photography, LLC- Compliance with Executive Order 7H

On March 20, 2020, Gov. Ned Lamont issued Executive Order 7H, directing all businesses and nonprofit entities in the State of Connecticut to utilize, to the maximum extent possible, any telecommuting or work from home procedures that they can safely employ.

As the sole member of Katie Pugliese Photography, LLC, I am deemed exempt and do not need to submit a request to be designated as an Essential Business by the State of Connecticut.
According to the Governor’s Executive Order, non-essential businesses may continue activities that are conducted off-site (e.g. a customer’s home) and/or by telecommuting or working from home. These photoshoots will only be conducted at the homes of my valued clients, and I will maintain strict adherence to social distancing guidelines at all times.
