A new Defy kiddo is on her way!

We are so excited to meet our newest Defy family member. Our very own Samantha is due today and before baby girl arrives we wanted to share our fun maternity photo shoot from this January. Mommy braved the brisk cold day and glowed with pride as she showed off her beautiful baby belly! I may have gone over board with the pictures but I just have too many favorites to choose!

New job for big sister to be!

Before little one arrives, we thought we’d share the final family portraits as a family of three. This big sister to be was a bundle of energy running through Bushnell Park in Hartford, CT. She will make a great teacher of running and jumping and smiling for the camera! We look forward to meeting and photographing the new addition in just a few weeks!

This little guy was celebrating a big milestone, his first birthday! He sported his bow tie with class and gave kissy fish faces to the camera to show his love. We included mommy and daddy for some fun casual shots as well as his two cousins for some fun. This sweet boy has a soft personality and he was a joy to work with.

Learning to be a big sister

This little cutie showed us lots of snuggles for bother mommy and her new baby brother as well as her independent side as we explored Elizabeth Park this past summer. Baby brother was a real champ as well, going from napping to being awake and passed around for everyone to love on. These two kiddos will have a great time keeping mom and dad on their toes for the next 18 years as they all grow in family love!       snuggles with big sisterindependent sisterbeautiful eyeshappy familybaby boy sleepingkisses for babylove couplesleeping baby taking care of brother

Celebrating big changes!

This month Defy owners are celebrating big changes! One of us is moving her family into their first home while the other is being showered with love for the upcoming arrival of her first born. Such gratitude for all the growth! And what’s more is our gratitude for loyal clients. This family came to us in the spring and we photographed this little boy in what was probably our most giggle filled session! Then this fall they came to us to photograph again our little super star and his little baby sister to be. What joy we had to be honored with such a precious session in Bushnell Park. We wish this family joy filled weeks as they come to a close as a family of three and welcome their new baby in the new year. We look forward to meeting her!

Photos with stories and smiles

More fun in Elizabeth Park this summer with this new family. This was little guys first photo shoot and he did very well! He was eager to tell us stories with lots of expression. His older sister was excited to show off her pink shoes and a pretty dress she had. They were both fabulous troopers and I see many a great photos in their futures!
