|This seems like the perfect time to bring you all back to one of the most gorgeous Fall days. A time when the term "social distancing" was not on everyone's mind. Of course, social distancing is not a problem when I'm photographing people. With the lens I use, I can be wayyyyy far away from my subject and yet make it seem like I'm right there up close and personal. I actually like to give my subjects space when I'm photographing them. It makes everyone more comfortable and more themselves when a camera is not right in their face. I guess I've been a social distancer for a while now. Go figure.
Let me get back on track with this gorgeous couple and their incredible engagement session. Ali & Pierre will be getting married this November on Hilton Head and I cannot WAIT! Just look at these two! They're so amazing to photograph and just to be with. I can't tell you how psyched I am to be traveling to Hilton Head for their wedding. These two? A beach? Come on - it's all so good.
Ali and Pierre, thank you, thank you, thank you for being you and allowing me to photograph this important time in your lives. See you soon! xoxo
|One of my all time favorite subjects has finally made his way to the blog! Meet Harry. When I say this young man was one of the nicest, most polite, pleasant, and cooperative guys to photograph, I mean it. Harry was the BEST!
I met up with Harry and his mom in a section of Central Park that I absolutely love called the Shakespeare Garden . It is such a beautiful spot in every season. This time I was able to enjoy it in the Fall, when the colors on the leaves were ideal. The flowers in the gardens were past their prime, but the foliage was peak.
You may not be able to tell from Harry's senior photos, but the park has a LOT of people in it. That's the beauty of this one particular area, you can find little pockets of beauty without anyone around.
Sara and Harry, thank you both so much for being incredibly easy to be with. Yours is a special bond!
|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!
