|Andrea and Dan and their soon to be bundle of joy were THE perfect subjects on a beautiful afternoon at Hammonasset State Park. I couldn't have asked for a more gorgeous, kind, and all around awesome couple to photograph. These first time parents were absolutely glowing with the joy of parenthood and I was so honored that they let me photograph this first step of the journey.
They get it. Andrea and Dan share those values, that I love, of photographing and documenting the history of family and the memories to pass on to their child. The best part of this session is that they made the choice to have their photos printed, framed, and hung, in the nursery, as a constant reminder to their child of the love they have for him. What a gift.
Thank you both, from the bottom of my heart, for letting me be a part of giving your child this piece of their history. xoxoxo
|It might be winter in CT right now, but it's summer in Alex's gorgeous senior photos! I have been so excited to share his handsome photos on the blog. When Alex's mom, Monica, contacted me to photograph her son for his yearbook photo, I was so psyched! I had photographed his older brother several years back and now it was Alex's turn.
We met at Tods Point Beach in Greenwich at my favorite time of day. Ohhhhhh that hour before sunset - there's nothing like it! Monica and Alex knew about the buttery light that I love and made it work perfectly with their schedules. We had enough time to make a loop around the area and were able to find some of the best locations.
Monica, I am beyond grateful that you let me photograph your amazing son. Alex, you are a dream to photograph and I know you'll be incredible at whatever the future holds for you!
|Now that the holidays have come to a close and I am settling back into work mode, I wanted to bring you back to warmer temperatures and a beautiful family beach session.
Meet Barbara, John, and their growing and gorgeous family! I had the honor of photographing their daughter Missy's wedding to Andrew back in 2009 and now they have two adorable sons, Jack and Liam, who were the stars of this session. Although, Ryan, Ali, and Pierre definitely held their own in front of the camera :)
The love between everyone in this family is so heartwarming. From the top down, it was nothing but smiles. I love how happy John and Barbara look with their grandsons. I am sooooo psyched for all of you!
Thank you for being so warm, welcoming, and incredible to photograph. I look forward to more time with all of you in the future! xoxo
|Whenever I am in the presence of this family, I am so happy. It has been such a joy for me to be able to photograph Helen, Russell, Nicholas, and Alexandra every year on their vacation. This year was a bonus because Russell's parents were there with us and I always love seeing them. The location was phenomenal. This New York family chose Washington Depot, CT for this session. We met on the Thoreau Bridge at Hidden Valley Preserve. What a cool place! It's a suspension bridge crossing over the Shepaug River with quotes from Thoreau's writings inscribed along the steel handrails of the bridge and in the bench just near it. Good luck topping this one Helen and Russell :)
Thank you all for being so incredible to photograph and so much FUN to be with!! I can't wait for our next one! xoxoxo

|On a hot and sunny day in September, I met Todd, Grace, and Nicholas at the TPC River Highlands for a fun family session. With a baby and a dog, these sessions need to move rather quickly to keep all engaged and happy. Luckily we found a wonderful shady spot with beautiful landscape and coloring in the background. I don't usually do a mid-day session because of lighting but this one worked out beautifully. If every scene could look this beautiful, I would photograph all day long :)
Thank you Todd, Grace, and Nicholas for being to gorgeous to photograph. I love your little family!
