|It's time to jump for joy that Spring is right around the corner! I think we've made it through the easiest winter yet. Please tell me I didn't just jinx us :) While we're watching the bulbs come up, let me take you back to a session I did on a gorgeous Fall day.
As soon as I drove up to their home and saw this beautiful lake and five awesome boys all smiling and looking so good, I knew this was going to be a winner. This was an extra special session for these five cousins because they got to share it with their wonderful grandparents. The love between all of them was the most unconditional and fun sort of love you ever saw. These five goofballs made their grandparents smile and laugh and really enjoy themselves, which made the photos even that much more meaningful. They will always look back and remember the fun time they had together creating these images.
Yeisid, thank you for letting me photograph your family in such a beautiful location. You have one very special family!
|They did it again! Sean, Kristan, Emily, and Maeve came to Branford with their best smiles and were beyond amazing to photograph. These two little girls get me every time I see them. Those faces are soooo cute! It still makes me smile to think how sweet they are with each other. They were up for anything. We met at the Branford LIbrary for some formal portraits and then made our way over to the beach behind their grandparents home. The sunsets there are the best!
Kristan and Sean, thank you for letting me photograph your gorgeous family once again. It just keeps getting better and better each time I see you!
|The cuteness is REAL! Remington has stolen my heart, and clearly, my camera as well. He is beyond photogenic and was full of smiles from start to finish. His grandmother and I had to be realllllly quiet as his mom was just down the hall and this was to be a surprise for her. We did it! Even with all our squealing over Remy and his ability to look unbelievably adorable in every photo, we pulled it off. I was incredibly overwhelmed with the sentimental side of photographing this particular baby. You see, his grandmother and I went to high school together. It's crazy that I am now photographing her grandson and she doesn't look old enough to even have a teenage child. She has clearly taken better care of herself then I have, haha!
Mary, thank you for entrusting me with Remy's surprise photos for his parents. It was such an honor and an even bigger joy for me. Love you so much!
|I have the BEST couples ever! Claire and Ryan are going to be married this June at Stonehurst at Hampton Valley and I can't wait! These two gorgeous people make me smile every time I'm around them. They're just so nice! No really, they are. Don't even get me started on their dog, Calvin. He stole the show from the moment he hopped out of the car and I couldn't get enough of him.
We met in Glastonbury, CT at Hops on the Hill on an off day when it was closed and the owner gave us the run of the land. I was beyond excited with all the options laid out in front of me. The textures and light in this location put me over the top with joy! Oh that light - it gets me every time.
Claire and Ryan, looking at the two of you together is like looking at the core of love. You are meant to be. I wish you all the best as an engaged couple and I'm so excited to see you two take on the next chapter at your wedding in June, and the chapter after that, and the one after that, and....well, you're stuck with me for life so there ya go. Love you both!

|This was one of the most special sessions I have ever done. It was 15 years ago when I first had the honor to photograph Liz and John on their wedding day at West Point. Fast forward to this past September, and the family has grown tremendously. The proud Grandparents, Dotty and Rick, were beaming from ear to ear as their 8 grandchildren - count 'em..1,2,3,4,5,6,7 & 8, surrounded them on the rocks of Hammonasset State Park. Numbered and color coded were the little cousins, making it so easy for me to know who went with who. Liz, John, James, Kiera, Livvie, Bill, Kelly, Catherine, Clara, John, Grace, Lila, Kenya, Tiason, and last but not least, Dotty and Rick - you were all so amazing to photograph!
When I tell you that these are the kindest, most generous and thoughtful people around, I am not kidding! From military service, to medical service, to teaching and to crafting beautiful cards for the soldiers, just to name a few, this family does it all.
Dotty and Rick, you must be incredibly proud of this great big beautiful family you have given this world to enjoy. Thank you for letting me photograph them all! xoxoxoxo
