|This family! These faces! So many smiles throughout our session. We had plans for an outdoor session but, Mother Nature had her own plans and brought us a little rain, so in we went. It's a good thing this family goes with the flow. Plan B was just as wonderful, as they had such a beautiful place for indoor photos.
Mallory and Jordan, you were so welcoming and warm from the moment we met. You can tell how kind you are just by experiencing how happy and fun your children are.
I love this quote that I found recently - "What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family".
Mallory and Jordan thank you for promoting world peace in the way that you love your kids so much! You're fantastic parents!
|As a photographer, I have the honor of being able to freeze moments in time that will stay in the hearts of the family's that I photograph. Not just for the moment, but for generations to come. This was one of those moments.
I met Daisy, Bob, Natasha, and Nathan on a gorgeous late afternoon at Elizabeth Park in Hartford. I couldn't have asked for better light and a better family to photograph in it. From the moment Daisy walked up to me, I knew it was going to be an awesome session! There's nothing better then meeting someone for the first time yet feeling like you've been friends for years. Daisy, you and Bob are the kind of people I could hang out with and have a blast doing it.
The impetus for this session was the fact that Nathan was graduating and heading off to the service. This was definitely a great reason to have family photos taken! Nathan you are off to do amazing things and I am so happy that I was able to photograph you with your family before the next chapter of your life began. Thank you for serving our country!
Daisy, thank you for contacting me and letting me photograph your beautiful family! I had a blast!
|If I could turn back time, I would head right back to Hilton Head, SC on that beautiful late afternoon in the Spring, when I photographed Maris, Troy, Hannah, and Luke at the beach. It was absolutely spectacular. The sand, the water, the temperature, but mostly, this family and the bond they share. It was all so good and I wish I could go back right now!
Thank you so much Maris and Troy for letting me photograph your beautiful family in such a special place. What a gift!

|Livia turned 1 and I had the honor of being there to document this milestone. Actually, I had the honor to photograph this beautiful baby three times during her first year. I thought I would put a few of the images from each session into this one blog post so you can see how much she's grown.
The first year is full of so many exciting moments. Even with the long nights, fussy moments, and other obstacles that parents go through, they all pale in comparison to the wonderful growth you get to observe right before your eyes. With all of the rapid changes, it's so important to take plenty of photographs during this time.
The first year with your baby will go by so quickly! Each day they grow and change, before you even realize, weeks and months will pass, and you will find them enter a new stage of their journey growing up.
Imagine going through together with your child looking at a collection of photographs of him or her and telling them about how much you fell in love with them, and together enjoying images of them from their first year sessions.
Livia is blessed that she has a family that values professional photography. She will be able to look back on these images and know how much she is loved. Sure, cell phones are a great way to capture the day to day, but professional photography will provide the high-end photographs that you can frame, gift and cherish for years to come. You'll never regret having too many photos, but you might regret not having enough.
Thank you Tina for letting me photograph this time in your granddaughters life. I look forward to watching Livia grow! xoxo
