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!

Happy Father’s Day!

Across the nation today, we are picking up the phone, visiting, and writing emails to the most amazing men in our lives. So to all the gentlemen who have helped us tie our shoes, ride our bikes, learn to drive, and held our hands the whole time, we send you a heartfelt Thank You! Be sure to give your dad, your grandpa, your uncle, or any other male figure in your life a huge hug and lots of love!

Here is a collection of some of our favorite photos with fathers. It’s always sweet to see dads and grandfathers hold their little ones, or to see the love in the eyes of fathers at weddings.

We also wanted to include photos of us with our fathers. We love you both!

Newborn baby girl is a perfect little model!

We had the great joy of meeting and photographing this little angel! She was such a good sport being passed around the family members and had many outfit changes. She’s a great little model in the making! With bows and rings and other special props, her first photo shoot was a success!

Wide eyes at 1 year old!

This curious little boy had quite the 1 year birthday! He helped with opening his presents, enjoyed a lion birthday cake and showed us his favorite toys during a private photo shoot. This is one happy and lovable little guy. We here at Defy would love to photograph him every day! Best wishes to mom and dad as they head into year 2!

Awaiting a new member of the family!

What a joy to see the excitement in an expanding family! Even big brother was excited to tell us where his baby sister currently resides. We had so much fun with this maternity session and wish this family big blessings as they continue to nurture the newest edition.
