Business photos to support a fellow independent owner!

We had the pleasure of photographing headshots and action shots for a fellow small business owner in Rocky Hill, Connecticut. Shari Casolo is a licensed massage therapist and the owner of Structural Health and Wellness. She specializes in Structural Energetic Therapy and is very good as what she does! We can speak to her professional yet very caring practice. Check out her website http://www.structuralhealthandwellness.com, where you will see our work showcasing her in action.

Cousins make best friends!

We had the very special honor of capturing not one but two pregnant mamas! These sister-in-laws were expecting at the same time, and one gifted the other with a double maternity session. We used Wickham Park in Manchester, Connecticut. We had fun with blocks and ribbons for these future baby girl cousins. Check back again soon for their newborn sessions!

An October wedding filled with love

We had the great honor of capturing this union in an outdoor ceremony at Highfields Country Club in Grafton, Massachusetts. From special love notes between the grooms, to a butterfly release in honor of a dear sister, this wedding was not short on moments of everlasting love. To see the families come together for these two was to witness unbreakable love and commitment. To the happy couple, thank you again for letting us be apart of your very special day!

Hello, Defy world!

We’ve missed you but life got in the way these past few years, including some trash!
And then we rode the roller coaster of life backwards this past year!
But we are back on track and ready to ride!

Check back often this new year because we look forward to sharing all the joy we’ve been capturing between life’s crazy moments these past few years. And we are so excited to continue sharing our work with old and new clients a like. We are now located in St. Louis, Missouri, and would love to capture the city with you as our wonderful models!

New favorite portrait location!

Due to a road race, this past Sunday we had to think quick on our feet and pick a new park location for our holiday portrait session. The dad of the family thought of this place and I am now hoping to find many more families to join me at this great spot! Stone walls, fun ruins for background textures, and great fall leaf colors. The Glazier ruins in South Glastonbury, Connecticut was a fabulous outdoor spot. Thank you to our flexible clients for going with the flow! We had fun with your boys and have loved watching them grow up. From showing off a lost tooth, to learning to pose themselves, and watching their personalities evolve has been a wonderful privilege over the years of capturing your family!

 

Stunning wedding in Northeast Connecticut

We had the honor this month of photographing a wedding in Pomfret, Connecticut at Tyrone Farm. The weather was rainy on and off for the morning and early afternoon, but when it came time to do the classic “first look” and group photos before the outdoor ceremony, the sky cleared up. During the ceremony there was a few thunder claps but as the groom looked up, his face lovely said, “dad, we know you’re here.” It was an honor to capture the day for the two families as they joined together. And we saw in every photo love and devotion that will carry this couple through their marriage together. Best wishes, Hannah and Jeff!

           

A wedding filled with emotions

We capture smiles, giggles and silly faces all the time in our portrait sessions. But its extra special to spend a wedding day with all these fabulous facial expressions together! From goofy faces at the dress rehearsal, to the excitement of getting ready, and the sweet bride consoling during the father-daughter dance, these two families have such a love filled life ahead of them. In was an honor to be part of the day for a special family and wish them a happy 1st year anniversary!

        

Capturing year after year

This spring we photographed 2 young sisters for their annual birthday photos. Often after we hit the 1 year milestone, the photos dwindle away and we get busy with life and keeping up with our active little people. I know personally for our family we try to get at least one annual family photo to acknowledge growth and change. Working with these two sisters for their annual photos was very special to see how their personalities are developing and growing with time. One soft, gentle spirit and the other very adventurous and active! Happy birthdays to these sweet little ones!

  

My little models

As a photographer, we often photograph everyone but our own little ones as we use our down time with family as a break from our work. But we should still be mindful to capture the light and love in our own families! I took the opportunity this past spring to capture some goofy, sweet, and serious faces of my two little models. I love them so much! Even when they decided they didn’t want to take a photo together.
