Ute-Christin Photography exceeded our expectations!

She photographed our newborn and did such an amazing job. She has a true talent not only for photography but also working with babies and families. She is kind, patient, caring and detailed oriented. Ute was extremely responsive to all of our questions, and her website and email communications are easy to follow. I will definitely be using Ute-Christin Photography in the future and you should, too.

Ute is a true professional

and not only does she have a mind-blowing studio with every prop imaginable to create your dream photos, it’s also safe to call her the baby whisperer. She caters to each individual clients wants and gives you the photos of your dreams- memories that last a lifetime. She was absolutely amazing with our newborn, keeping him happy for over 4hrs!!! Truly an impressive experience. I’d recommend her to anyone and everyone.

Ute is absolutely fantastic with children

We have done a newborn and a mini session with her. She was patient and super friendly. The first time I met her, when I walked into the studio ( which is amazing by the way!!) she gave me a big hug. She and her studio space are so warm and inviting. She has thought of everything to make sure your session goes so smoothly. And her work is superb. The poses she gets are absolutely amazing. Once you try her you won’t go anywhere else!! To say I highly recommend her is an understatement.

Do you photograph newborns on location or in studio only?

We only provide newborn photography in our Milford studio, but we’re happy to give you a referral for a traveling photographer. Before you request a referral though, keep in mind that our studio is warm, cozy, and full of adorable props!

I don’t know exactly when I will deliver my baby; how do I book a session?

Don't worry about it at all, because one of nature’s gifts is that you can never exactly plan for this life-changing event—unless of course, you’re having a C-section. To ease your mind, we’ll be flexible by using your due date as a placeholder in our calendar, and then once your bundle of joy arrives, we’ll find a date that will work for both of us!

What’s your typical turnaround time?

Unless I’m on vacation or super backed up—between us, neither of those happens a lot or even ever—you will have your final images within 2 weeks of the date of your session.

Can I pay cash? Do you offer payment plans?

You can certainly pay in cash—everybody loves some cold hard cash—but if that’s your chosen payment method, you’ll have to drop off the deposit at the studio when booking your session (alternatively, you could pay the deposit via credit card, and pay the remainder in cash when your session takes place). We‘re not particular about how you pay, as long as your session is paid for in full 3 days in advance of your session for non-cash transactions, and on the date of your session when paying in cash. Just let us know what works better for you!

Do you offer gift cards?

Absolutely! You can buy gift cards for any amount and send them to family or friends. And why not? You’re giving the gift of lasting memories and we’re sure they would appreciate it.
Why not do it right now? Click here .

Do you offer a registry option?

Yes, we do! We will create your own page that you can pass along to family and friends so they can make contributions towards your session! This is a very popular choice, especially for newborn sessions. We can understand why people love this option because having people that care about you pay for your sessions instead of you? It’s genius!

What type of photography do you offer? Do you photograph adults?

As you may have noticed from our website, we offer maternity, newborn, children, and immediate family sessions. We offer headshots for current clients only, and those will be held on special dates throughout the year. We do not offer engagement, weddings, extended families or any type of party coverage sessions. We do love to have a good time though, so don't skip out on inviting us (especially if there’s cake)! If you’re looking for someone to photograph these types of events though, there is a large photography network in Connecticut, and we’re happy to help you find the right photographer that suits your needs.

Where will my session take place? Do you also shoot outside?

A lot of our sessions (newborn, sitter, cake smashes, holiday minis) will take place in our studio, and that’s a good thing because rain or shine—we have the perfect temperature inside! For outdoor sessions, we offer maternity photography outdoors year round, and family photography outdoors from April to mid-November. We have a list of nearby locations within a 10-mile radius that you can choose from for your petite sessions, and we do travel for deluxe family sessions up to 30 miles from 06461. We also provide the option to extend those mileage restrictions for an extra charge (in other words, if you’re able to cover the expenses, we’re willing and happy to accommodate you!)

How will I know what to wear? How do I prepare my family before the shoot?

Rest assured, we will cover these important details once you book. Ute is a great believer in the idea that what you wear is just as important as whom you book for your photography session—so you are off to a great start! We will closely advise you on clothing options so you’re able to make the best choice for your session. We even use a personalized styling system that will help you select clothing for everyone involved in your shoot! There will also be tips and tricks on what you can do to make sure everyone is in their best mood for their photography session (maybe that’s never a guarantee, but in those cases that’s why there’s wine! Just keep in mind that no alcoholic beverages are provided by your photographer)

Can I bring my pets?

It depends on the size of your pet and the location of your session. Due to allergy concerns, pet use is limited in the studio but may be possible if a few specific rules are followed (and we can cover those requirements once you book). We do however always welcome family pets for outdoor shoots, and we are happy to include your furry family members in your photographs! Just keep in mind that we are not specifically trained in pet photography—and before you ask, yes there are pet photographers too! So if the focus of your shoot is your pet, there might be others out there more qualified than us (and with fewer allergies!)

Do you have props or clothing we can borrow?

We have an amazing collection of props and clothing for newborn sessions, so for those, all you have to bring is your adorable babies! We do have lots of clothing choices for sitters, as well as some stunning dresses for girls 2 to 12 years old. We also have a great variety of maternity dresses that you are encouraged to borrow for your shoot. We’ll be honest though, we don’t have many or any clothing choices for boys aged 2 to well...99 years old, and that will probably be the case as long as girls’ and women’s clothing is so much more creative and cute!! We do however have a great collection of props that can be used inside the studio or outdoors, as long as it is appropriate to do so.

How do I pronounce your name?

That’s probably the number one question we get, so you’re not alone! Just click here and listen to the first part of my name. Don't worry about the ‘Christin’ part, because unless I’m in trouble or at the dentist (are those two any different?) no one ever says the full name—so Ute will do!
