    Hello 🙂 I nominate myself. I am 4 months pregnant, and am very much looking forward to making and having memories through the lens with you! My sister in law had her maternity shots taken by you, and I was blown away! XxReplyCancel

  • Kayte Gavin

    I am nominating my little sister, Kim Nikolic! She is one of the most caring, selfless moms I know and is welcoming her second bundle of joy in May. No one captures those first moments better than Saren so I would love for her to have those special keepsakes! ❤️ReplyCancel

  • Erin Strain

    I am nominating my sister in law, Courtney Hanks. She is a hardworking maternity nurse who gives her all to babies, mamas, and families each and every day (and probably will right up to her due date in April!). Knowing her leave time may be limited and getting back to work means longer shifts and time away from her soon to be little guy, this session and the photos from it would be create the sweetest memories to have and look back on!ReplyCancel

  • Geraldine Bencivengo

    I (Grandmother if baby to be) would like to nominate Rose Higgins and her soon to be son coming this April! She is the mother to 2 beautiful girls and they are over the moon to meet their baby brother to be. This baby came as a complete surprise and she would be thrilled and shocked to be able to celebrate her complete family together with a full newborn session and all the perks!ReplyCancel

  • Nicholas Hanks

    Nominee: Courtney Hanks, I believe Courtney is someone who deserves this photo shoot for a multitude of reasons beyond a nice opportunity. She is caring and responsible individual, who has taken charge in her life, and has created a welcoming environment for her expected first born child. She always works so hard for everything she does, and this would be a wonderful relief in regards to making everlasting memories. Keep up the great work, and keep making people proud. ReplyCancel

    I (Rachel’s mom) would like to
    nominate Rachel Winoski for this shoot. Rachel is so blessed to have 2 children
    and one on the way arriving in June this year. My grandson, Benji, will be 4 in
    June and my granddaughter daughter Vivian who will turn 2 in April. When
    someone from the outside looks at Rachel’s life, it is very easy to say wow,
    she has two healthy children who are 22 months apart, pregnant for the 3rd
    time, and assume everything is normal. What people don’t know about her is that
    she sprinted a marathon to have her three children. Rachel grew up in a very
    large family. My husband and I each have 4 siblings. Rachel has one bother; 21
    cousins and her cousins have 19 children and the number is growing. Growing up,
    we were always surrounded by a huge family and we never once heard the word
    infertility. When you grow up, no one envisions that this could be part of your
    story. It became a very harsh reality of Rachel’s and one we knew nothing about.

    Rachel married her husband Mike
    in 2015 and they both always knew that they wanted a family. In the process of
    trying to have children, Rachel learned that she has a rare genetic disorder. Rachel
    has something called a tripled balanced translocation. Essentially, her DNA is
    rearranged, and the doctors believe that at some point in her life, this shift
    happened, she wasn’t born this way. They have seen examples where individuals
    have one or two chromosomes strands that have broken off and attached to other
    chromosomes, but they confirmed that none of their doctors, a majority of which
    had over 30 years’ experience, had ever seen a situation where three had done
    this. Rachel was the first in this Connecticut practice.

    Thankfully, it has no impact on her
    personal health which is essentially why we never knew she had it. However, the
    only side effect it does have is that it makes it extremely difficult to have
    children. The only way you learn you have it is through multiple miscarriages
    which was the case for Rachel.  It took
    multiple losses and essentially 2 years for Rachel to get pregnant with Benji.
    For those that have had similar experience, the doctors and nurses call it
    “graduation” when you transfer from your IVF clinic back to your regular
    doctors. Although, her doctor and nurse were her biggest cheerleaders, Rachel
    distinctly remembers when it came time to graduate, them saying to Rachel, we
    will be honest with you now. We aren’t really sure how you got here. Your son
    and any future children you may have are miracles. When your doctors and
    nurses, who believe in science and statistics tell you that, it is forever
    impactful.  

    Rachel and her husband spent the past
    6 years at the IVF clinic in order to welcome Benji, Vivian, and baby girl
    Winoski this June. When we look back at her journey thus far, we really wonder
    how Rachel survived certain moments. We would love to honor Rachel and her family
    with these photos for her to have a forever memory in their home as their
    family will now be complete with their 3 miracles babies. ReplyCancel

Emily has always wanted to be a mom and I admire her love and efforts towards loving everyone in her life. 2022 has brought a lot of struggles into her life and I think this would not only ease her mind but get her the newborn pictures she wants but we didn’t think we would be able to have. ReplyCancel

                I nominate Carissa Andrews. I met Carissa and her husband Jon when my husband was in the end stage of cancer and we were forced to sell our beloved home in Torrington and move to FL to be near family for his remaining time. Our home was more than a house it was where we were raising our children and our dreams for a future was in that home; unfortunately, that wasn’t going to happen for us, but it could for the beautiful couple that bought our home and knew they wanted to raise a family there. That couple was Carissa and Jon. Their first child is due in a couple of months and I want all of their hopes and dreams to be fulfilled.  Please choose them for the gift of a professional photography for their new baby. ♥️ReplyCancel

                I would like to nominate my best friend, April Brackett Schumann. April gave birth to a PERFECT baby girl, Inza a week ago (1/30) and she has been in the NICU ever since. Inza is a strong little fighter and we are all incredibly hopeful that she will be coming home this weekend! April and her husband Doug had a very very long journey getting pregnant. This tiny human has literally been years in the making. Through many ups and unfortunately too many downs to think about, April never lost her positive attitude. She graciously watched the rest of her friends have babies and always showed them abundant love and never ending grace. As my little girl’s godmother, she treats her like she is her own child. She is a true angel amount us.

                I would love for Carissa Andrews to be able to win this gift !! Being a first time mother we all know trying to get everything in order and paying for things can be daunting. I would love for her to have this opportunity to have a beautiful session for all the beautiful and fun parties they have given to all of us. In weeks time they will bring their bundle of joy into this world and I hope we can give them as new parents a bundle of joy to help remember the amazing gift that they have been given

Over the past few years, Julia has been nothing but an amazing friend, mentor, and teacher to other people’s kids! I can’t wait to watch her become a mom. I also know that Julia is so busy preparing for their baby girl, that she has been putting things like scheduling and paying for photo shoots on the back burner.

                I nominate Kaitlin Voglesong and her husband John. As with many moms and dads of this generation they daily do a juggling act of caring for their children wonderfully, performing at the highest level in their professions, caring for their two dogs and all the unforseens that happen during their busy days. Are they frazzled at times? Sure, but most dayS they are enjoying life at its fullest. They offer their children much love but also instill in them a sense of adventure, curiosity and wonder. They add many life experiences which includes other members of their extended family as well. In today’s world having a strong extended family is so important. Kaitlin and John have seemed to master that juggling act I referenced earlier. The birth of their 3rd child can only bring on more fulfillment. I think they deserve this package. ReplyCancel

                I nominate one of the most caring, considerate, patient, loving, truly wonderful moms and overall human beings I’ve ever known, Amanda O’Brien. While I’m certain all of the nominees are amazing moms, I can only speak personally for Amanda and say that even with her friendships, she has that genuine motherly care and concern, and just wants the best for those that she loves. There is no exception when it comes to motherhood and those qualities are only magnified. She has done an exceptionally amazing job raising the sweetest little girl in the entire world and I know she’ll do just as incredible when she welcomes her little boy this July. You could offer her the chance to win this photo session or a weekend getaway and I know without a doubt she’d choose the photos because for Amanda, there’s no greater prize/reward/gift than the life she’s already brought into this world and the life she’s about to. I know that she would truly value and appreciate even the thought of having these memories to look back on and would be utterly grateful if she were to actually be chosen. For these reasons (and a million more), I hope she wins!ReplyCancel

                Amanda O’Brien is my nominee for the Mama Newborn Session.  She has been a devoted and dedicated mother to her first daughter and always putting family first in all she does.  Looking so much forward to her next child and sibling for her daughter.  Amanda has been successful at balancing home and work, which is not an easy task, but Amanda has been able to give 100% to both and make it seem effortless.  So, on top of being a wonderful person in her own right, I hope you can grant her this wish for all she does for her family and friends.ReplyCancel

                Hi Saren, I nominate my Aunt Meghan! She has recently given birth to her 6th child, Milo. She is THE BEST mama to my 6 little cousins, Rhys, Luca, Faith, Levi, (my Godson) Abel, and now baby Milo. My Aunt Meghan came into my life at an early age, and I can’t imagine life without her and my little cousins! Growing up, her and my uncle Wesley always made me feel so loved and I knew they’d be amazing parents. I never expected what was to come, they are better parents than I could ever describe. My little cousins mean so much to me and are the kindest souls you’ll ever meet and that is thanks to their parents without a doubt. Both work full-time jobs while going above and beyond for their 6 little children (their eldest being only 14 years old). I, truly, have never witnessed this kind of love and care. My aunt spends the day caring for my cousins until my uncle comes home from his job to then go on to work a night shift at a local restaurant. Everyday. Somehow she stills finds time in her busy schedule to be there for me as well! She is an inspiration to me and I could think of no one more deserving of this gift than her! I love you Aunt Meghan, you’re my hero! Xo Maria  ReplyCancel

                Hi there! My name is Carissa Andrews and I am due the first week of April with my first baby (a little girl ????) My husband and I are absolutely over the moon and I would be honored to be nominated for this wonderful keepsake. I have been following Saren’s work for some time now in hopes of one day being able to partake in a session with a little one of my own. I also have two friends that have had sessions and the work is just perfection. Thank you for sharing your work and for your consideration.ReplyCancel

                My sister, Melissa Geraci is an extremely hard working Mom who is expecting her second child within the month!  While pregnant for more than half of it, she kept up the hustle and was the salesperson of the year for her medical device company. Not only is she a mom boss but she takes care of everyone around her including her daughter, Isabella. She has had a tough pregnancy health-wise and I think she definitely deserves something special to do for her second born son Gino when he comes and this photoshoot would be perfect! They both deserve it.ReplyCancel

                My sister, Lauren Bode, is due in May with her miracle baby – the one she never thought she’d have due to some fertility challenges that left her chances of conceiving slim to none. As she anxiously awaited her first cycle of IVF, being careful not to get too hopeful as even chances with IVF were slim, we all got the BEST news that somehow she was pregnant! Happy doesn’t begin to describe how we all feel about this – we are a baby-loving family and this little nugget will be loved infinitely! How incredible it’d be to have Saren capture her first days…ReplyCancel

              • Kristy Foran

                I would like to nominate myself, Kristy Foran. This is my second baby and second boy. He’s due this July right after Kace turns 2! I’m a little nervous for the mom of two role, but so excited and thankful.  Becoming a mom has truly been the greatest blessing and adventure of my life. Capturing that time when they’re so little and new is so special and important. There’s no one who brings these images to life better then saren. We have been putting off getting married because I wanted to have another baby close in age to big brother, Kace. This would be an amazing gift to receive this giveaway as I would likely not be able to afford it saving for a wedding. Thank you for your generosity with this giveaway saren!ReplyCancel

She is a special education teacher who goes above and beyond for her kiddos every single day. She is an inspiration and I can’t think of a more deserving person to receive this giftReplyCancel

              • Francine Bowman

                I’d like to nominate my daughter Melissa Geraci.  She is pregnant with her second child, a son and is a mother to a 21/2 year old daughter. My reason for nominating her is that she is MY role model. She is a strong woman who works hard, is a hands on Mom, nurtures her relationship with her husband, maintains her friendships, always makes time for her sister, visits her grandmother regularly and always sends daily messages to wish everyone a wonderful day.  For all that she does I would like to see her recognized in such a lovely way.ReplyCancel

                I would personally love the opportunity to do this newborn session with you! Our first little girl is due the first week of April, and my husband and I are obsessed with your work! With our recent move to Connecticut, new job and house, a newborn session isn’t feasible on a new baby budget. However, we look forward to using you for future family milestones regardless of this contest!  Thanks for this contest and for your consideration ????ReplyCancel

              • Samantha Kheboian

                I’d like to nominate my best friend, Shelby Zukowski. Shelby is the kindest person I know, who gives all of herself to everyone around her. She is a special education teacher who won the “Teacher of the Year” award at her elementary school. She is going to be the worlds BEST mom, I can’t wait to watch her thrive in this new and exciting chapter!ReplyCancel

              A little video of my favorite newborn session….

              Once in a while, you get a 2-year-old big sibling who is actually EXCITED about having a newborn baby sister…..  The giggles and smiles and covering her eyes whenever the flash went off were totally hysterical and I’m pretty sure big sister Quinn doesn’t ever have a frown on her face or a single temper...

                                    I am nominating my sister in law, Courtney Hanks. She is a hardworking maternity nurse who gives her all to babies, mamas, and families each and every day (and probably will right up to her due date in April!). Knowing her leave time may be limited and getting back to work means longer shifts and time away from her soon to be little guy, this session and the photos from it would be create the sweetest memories to have and look back on!ReplyCancel

This baby came as a complete surprise and she would be thrilled and shocked to be able to celebrate her complete family together with a full newborn session and all the perks!ReplyCancel

                                    Nominee: Courtney Hanks, I believe Courtney is someone who deserves this photo shoot for a multitude of reasons beyond a nice opportunity. She is caring and responsible individual, who has taken charge in her life, and has created a welcoming environment for her expected first born child. She always works so hard for everything she does, and this would be a wonderful relief in regards to making everlasting memories. Keep up the great work, and keep making people proud. ReplyCancel

                                    I (Rachel’s mom) would like to
                                    nominate Rachel Winoski for this shoot. Rachel is so blessed to have 2 children
                                    and one on the way arriving in June this year. My grandson, Benji, will be 4 in
                                    June and my granddaughter daughter Vivian who will turn 2 in April. When
                                    someone from the outside looks at Rachel’s life, it is very easy to say wow,
                                    she has two healthy children who are 22 months apart, pregnant for the 3rd
                                    time, and assume everything is normal. What people don’t know about her is that
                                    she sprinted a marathon to have her three children. Rachel grew up in a very
                                    large family. My husband and I each have 4 siblings. Rachel has one bother; 21
                                    cousins and her cousins have 19 children and the number is growing. Growing up,
                                    we were always surrounded by a huge family and we never once heard the word
                                    infertility. When you grow up, no one envisions that this could be part of your
                                    story. It became a very harsh reality of Rachel’s and one we knew nothing about.

                                    Rachel married her husband Mike
                                    in 2015 and they both always knew that they wanted a family. In the process of
                                    trying to have children, Rachel learned that she has a rare genetic disorder. Rachel
                                    has something called a tripled balanced translocation. Essentially, her DNA is
                                    rearranged, and the doctors believe that at some point in her life, this shift
                                    happened, she wasn’t born this way. They have seen examples where individuals
                                    have one or two chromosomes strands that have broken off and attached to other
                                    chromosomes, but they confirmed that none of their doctors, a majority of which
                                    had over 30 years’ experience, had ever seen a situation where three had done
                                    this. Rachel was the first in this Connecticut practice.

                                    Thankfully, it has no impact on her
                                    personal health which is essentially why we never knew she had it. However, the
                                    only side effect it does have is that it makes it extremely difficult to have
                                    children. The only way you learn you have it is through multiple miscarriages
                                    which was the case for Rachel.  It took
                                    multiple losses and essentially 2 years for Rachel to get pregnant with Benji.
                                    For those that have had similar experience, the doctors and nurses call it
                                    “graduation” when you transfer from your IVF clinic back to your regular
                                    doctors. Although, her doctor and nurse were her biggest cheerleaders, Rachel
                                    distinctly remembers when it came time to graduate, them saying to Rachel, we
                                    will be honest with you now. We aren’t really sure how you got here. Your son
                                    and any future children you may have are miracles. When your doctors and
                                    nurses, who believe in science and statistics tell you that, it is forever
                                    impactful.  

                                    Rachel and her husband spent the past
                                    6 years at the IVF clinic in order to welcome Benji, Vivian, and baby girl
                                    Winoski this June. When we look back at her journey thus far, we really wonder

                                  • Dr. Stefanie Gillson is a psychiatrist trained in child and adolescent psychiatry, as well as public psychiatry. She is a fierce advocate for women’s mental health, co-founding the Women’s Mental Health Conference at Yale and the Yale Women’s Housestaff Association. Her efforts have significantly benefited many physician moms and affected change on a system-wide level. She has also been involved in developing community-based initiatives to address mental health disparities among Indigenous populations and actively recruits Indigenous youth into the medical field. Stefanie has done so much for so many. I would love to have the lens focused on her and have her experience the magic of Saren’s photography to capture such a special moment in her life (due in June). Thank you, Stefanie, for all that you do. And a huge thank you to the photography extraordinaire, Saren!!ReplyCancel

She has had a hard pregnancy, most of it during COVID surges, making it hard for her to enjoy such a beautiful period in her life!! I never had photos done like this with my first and I feel like I don’t even remember these days! I don’t want her to forget the beautiful newborn stage and she deserves to have those beautiful days commemorated!ReplyCancel

I met Carissa and her husband Jon when my husband was in the end stage of cancer and we were forced to sell our beloved home in Torrington and move to FL to be near family for his remaining time. Our home was more than a house it was where we were raising our children and our dreams for a future was in that home; unfortunately, that wasn’t going to happen for us, but it could for the beautiful couple that bought our home and knew they wanted to raise a family there. That couple was Carissa and Jon. Their first child is due in a couple of months and I want all of their hopes and dreams to be fulfilled.  Please choose them for the gift of a professional photography for their new baby. ♥️ReplyCancel

April gave birth to a PERFECT baby girl, Inza a week ago (1/30) and she has been in the NICU ever since. Inza is a strong little fighter and we are all incredibly hopeful that she will be coming home this weekend! April and her husband Doug had a very very long journey getting pregnant. This tiny human has literally been years in the making. Through many ups and unfortunately too many downs to think about, April never lost her positive attitude. She graciously watched the rest of her friends have babies and always showed them abundant love and never ending grace. As my little girl’s godmother, she treats her like she is her own child. She is a true angel amount us.
                                                If there was ever someone who deserved one of your beautiful sessions, it is this amazing human being. Please choose her!ReplyCancel

Are they frazzled at times? Sure, but most dayS they are enjoying life at its fullest. They offer their children much love but also instill in them a sense of adventure, curiosity and wonder. They add many life experiences which includes other members of their extended family as well. In today’s world having a strong extended family is so important. Kaitlin and John have seemed to master that juggling act I referenced earlier. The birth of their 3rd child can only bring on more fulfillment. I think they deserve this package. ReplyCancel

                                                I nominate one of the most caring, considerate, patient, loving, truly wonderful moms and overall human beings I’ve ever known, Amanda O’Brien. While I’m certain all of the nominees are amazing moms, I can only speak personally for Amanda and say that even with her friendships, she has that genuine motherly care and concern, and just wants the best for those that she loves. There is no exception when it comes to motherhood and those qualities are only magnified. She has done an exceptionally amazing job raising the sweetest little girl in the entire world and I know she’ll do just as incredible when she welcomes her little boy this July. You could offer her the chance to win this photo session or a weekend getaway and I know without a doubt she’d choose the photos because for Amanda, there’s no greater prize/reward/gift than the life she’s already brought into this world and the life she’s about to. I know that she would truly value and appreciate even the thought of having these memories to look back on and would be utterly grateful if she were to actually be chosen. For these reasons (and a million more), I hope she wins!ReplyCancel

                                                Amanda O’Brien is my nominee for the Mama Newborn Session.  She has been a devoted and dedicated mother to her first daughter and always putting family first in all she does.  Looking so much forward to her next child and sibling for her daughter.  Amanda has been successful at balancing home and work, which is not an easy task, but Amanda has been able to give 100% to both and make it seem effortless.  So, on top of being a wonderful person in her own right, I hope you can grant her this wish for all she does for her family and friends.ReplyCancel

                                                Hi Saren, I nominate my Aunt Meghan! She has recently given birth to her 6th child, Milo. She is THE BEST mama to my 6 little cousins, Rhys, Luca, Faith, Levi, (my Godson) Abel, and now baby Milo. My Aunt Meghan came into my life at an early age, and I can’t imagine life without her and my little cousins! Growing up, her and my uncle Wesley always made me feel so loved and I knew they’d be amazing parents. I never expected what was to come, they are better parents than I could ever describe. My little cousins mean so much to me and are the kindest souls you’ll ever meet and that is thanks to their parents without a doubt. Both work full-time jobs while going above and beyond for their 6 little children (their eldest being only 14 years old). I, truly, have never witnessed this kind of love and care. My aunt spends the day caring for my cousins until my uncle comes home from his job to then go on to work a night shift at a local restaurant. Everyday. Somehow she stills finds time in her busy schedule to be there for me as well! She is an inspiration to me and I could think of no one more deserving of this gift than her! I love you Aunt Meghan, you’re my hero! Xo Maria  ReplyCancel

My husband and I are absolutely over the moon and I would be honored to be nominated for this wonderful keepsake. I have been following Saren’s work for some time now in hopes of one day being able to partake in a session with a little one of my own. I also have two friends that have had sessions and the work is just perfection. Thank you for sharing your work and for your consideration.ReplyCancel

                                                My sister, Melissa Geraci is an extremely hard working Mom who is expecting her second child within the month!  While pregnant for more than half of it, she kept up the hustle and was the salesperson of the year for her medical device company. Not only is she a mom boss but she takes care of everyone around her including her daughter, Isabella. She has had a tough pregnancy health-wise and I think she definitely deserves something special to do for her second born son Gino when he comes and this photoshoot would be perfect! They both deserve it.ReplyCancel

                                                My sister, Lauren Bode, is due in May with her miracle baby – the one she never thought she’d have due to some fertility challenges that left her chances of conceiving slim to none. As she anxiously awaited her first cycle of IVF, being careful not to get too hopeful as even chances with IVF were slim, we all got the BEST news that somehow she was pregnant! Happy doesn’t begin to describe how we all feel about this – we are a baby-loving family and this little nugget will be loved infinitely! How incredible it’d be to have Saren capture her first days…ReplyCancel

I’m a little nervous for the mom of two role, but so excited and thankful.  Becoming a mom has truly been the greatest blessing and adventure of my life. Capturing that time when they’re so little and new is so special and important. There’s no one who brings these images to life better then saren. We have been putting off getting married because I wanted to have another baby close in age to big brother, Kace. This would be an amazing gift to receive this giveaway as I would likely not be able to afford it saving for a wedding. Thank you for your generosity with this giveaway saren!ReplyCancel

My reason for nominating her is that she is MY role model. She is a strong woman who works hard, is a hands on Mom, nurtures her relationship with her husband, maintains her friendships, always makes time for her sister, visits her grandmother regularly and always sends daily messages to wish everyone a wonderful day.  For all that she does I would like to see her recognized in such a lovely way.ReplyCancel
