Stock The Bar Candles

I had the pleasure of working for a friend who started her own candle making business. She uses recycled bottles and creates “organic soy candles infused with fragrant scents.” Stock The Bar Candles is located in West Hartford, CT but will ship anywhere in the United States! Check out their website. You can also learn more on their facebook page and see what local fairs they will be selling. These candles make great presents for this fall and upcoming holiday season!

Two little explorers in a young girl’s park

I had the privilege of photographing two very special girls. My flower girl and her little sister who arrived 2 months after our wedding! We checked out a new playground and these two ran around showing me all the exciting slides and features to the play-scape. I even got to see how to make a dress twirl! The playground we choose is brightly colored purple and yet it is one created from a tragic event. The Ana Grace Marquez-Greene’s Playground in Elizabeth Park in Hartford was made in honor of one of the Sandy Hook victims. As the seasons change and we watch the children start a new school year, I hope this year comes with joy, eagerness to learn, excitement for exploration, and gentle peace for all our students. We have enjoyed photographing countless children and their loving smiles is what makes us continue daily to do what we love as a life long career.
