|Lighting makes all the difference. For anyone that hasn't heard me say it yet, photographing an hour before sunset is the best! Danielle and Sean made the scene and the light look even better. We met at Hammonasset State Park at the best light during a beautiful fall day. We had this little slice of heaven all to ourselves.
It's such a bonus to be the only ones at a location so the couple can feel more relaxed. Since we were meeting for the first time, making sure that Danielle and Sean felt relaxed was super important to me. I completely understand that it's tough to freely express affection and emotion outside the home at any time, but especially when a stranger is standing there with a camera pointed at you! yikes! I get it. I honestly do my very best to make everyone feel at ease and comfortable. Even if it means pulling out a few of my dumb jokes.
Everyone should feel at home. They should be able to have fun. They should feel confident.
Danielle and Sean nailed all of it! They were incredible to photograph and they were even better to hang out with!
Thank you both for letting me photograph this moment in your history together. It was a joy for me!
|Lucca!!! I just can't get over how CUTE this boy is! From the moment I walked into their home, Lucca was all smiles. Smiles and giggles. It wasn't for me though. It was for his Grandmother and Great Grandmother. They were my back up comedy duo providing all the great reasons to smile.
When Karen contacted me to photograph her grandson, I was thrilled. I mean really, this boy was made for the camera. I think my comedy act of Karen and Marcy tired out long before Lucca did. If anyone needs some comic relief, please contact Karen and Marcy.
Karen, thank you again for letting me photograph your beautiful grandson!
|How beautiful is this fall session that I got to photograph for Krista, Kevin, Brody, and Finn! The landscape at Hammonasset State Park in every season is incredible, but I find it exceptional in the fall. I had the great joy of photographing Krista, Kevin, and the newest member of their family - Brody, on a gorgeous late afternoon at Meigs Point. Although Brody was pretty new at this modeling thing, he hung in there like a champ. I am so honored that I could photograph this gorgeous little family at this stage for them.
Beginning a family is an incredible blessing. "A new baby is like the beginning of all things - wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities"
Thank you Krista and Kevin for trusting me to photograph this chapter for you!
|When I think of this family, and this session, I can't help but smile. Jeff contacted me to photograph his family following a vow renewal ceremony of he and his beautiful wife, Linda. A vow renewal! That speaks volumes about their love. I was so happy to be a part of their day.
With their children, Catie and Gavin, by their side, we met at Hamonassett State Park for some family photos by the water. We had a very relaxed and fun time, allowing them to enjoy some quality family time together. Priceless.
I love to photograph families, especially when the occasion is as special as this one. Jeff, I can't thank you enough for letting me be able to create special memories of this wonderful day for you. It was an honor!
