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.

    

A book themed birthday party!

Possibly one of the cutest themes we’ve seen, we were invited to capture a special little girls book themed 1st birthday party! From the fabulous little caterpillar cake to the guest book being a children’s book, just about every character you would think of was included. And this darling little model was such an angel with her guests. From parents, to daycare teachers to mommy’s friends, she posed and smiled for us all afternoon. We would love to capture this wonderful milestone with you and your little tyke!

Pups join the holiday portraits!

Sometimes when kiddos grow up into young adults, people enjoy getting some fur babies for the continued cuddles and snuggles! This mama has a beautiful family of big kids and fur babies a like. Full of laughs and smiles, hugs and kisses, we had a great time capturing this family for their holiday portrait session. Call us today to schedule your family portrait with all the kiddos, fur babies included!

 

Milestones: High School Senior Portraits!

There are many milestones in our lives and graduating from high school is one of them. I love working with these young adults, capturing their memories of their final year as a kid. Whether we include a uniform, an instrument or a special ribbon, every piece of a senior session marks true accomplishments and rewards. This particular young man was a joy to work with on his school campus. He was very agreeable to whatever mom or I requested and we even got the younger brother in a couple shots that mom then used for holiday cards. Best of luck as you finish your senior year!
