Westchester, NY Family Session of the R Family : NY Family Photographer

So many laughs, so much energy, and an abundance of love. That's what this session was all about. I met this beautiful family for the first time at
Cranberry Lake Preserve in Westchester, NY. Although we were not able to explore much of the area due to a locked gate, we made due with a small part of land at the front of the park that fit everyone. It worked well.

The cousin love was evident as the kids had a blast together. The giggles were contagious! At the young ages they were, it was best to get them the way that made them most comfortable, which meant jumping up on stumps and letting them pose themselves. Letting kids be kids is so important and makes getting the best expressions that much easier.

Thank you all for being so much fun to photograph!

Meigs Point Family Session of Amelia, Harrison & Layla : CT Family Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous family in one of my favorite places - the Meigs Point area in Hammonasset State Park . It was the perfect fit for these three. Since Layla is not yet up for exploring the beach, this private little area was shaded and and cool enough for her and provided an ideal happy place for all of us. Layla was so engaged and having fun, but who wouldn't with Amelia and Harrison as the parents! These two are awesome!

I love everything about this family and am so honored that they let me photograph their love at this moment in time.

Thank you Amelia, Harrison, and Layla! you were all so wonderful! xoxo

Branford, CT Family Session of the O Family : CT Family Photographer

What a beautiful afternoon for a family session! When Mr. O contacted me that all of his grandchildren would be together for their 50th wedding anniversary, I knew I wanted to be there to help them create memories of this very special time.

One family rented a house on the water right around the corner from me so it made it even better! It was a perfect location. Although we had plenty of "posed" photos, it was the playful side of the kids that I loved so much. Uncle Patrick provided some great football fun creating the most wonderful, joyous, expressions. I can still hear their laughter and see the fun unfolding in front of us as they ran for the ball.

This is a very special family and to be able to have all the grandkids together was priceless. Thank you for letting me be a part of your fun and a very happy anniversary to the proud grandparents, Bob and Barbara! I wish you many many more years of love and happiness together!

Hammonasset State Park Family Session of Graham, Rachael, and Juniper: CT Family Photographer

If you can make sunset work, that's fantastic! however, sometimes it doesn't happen exactly as we plan but we head out to the beach anyway. This time, we were sitting next to some very dark clouds, some far off rain, and a less then ideal sunset. The good news? we had the entire beach to OURSELVES! It couldn't have worked out any better!

I met Rachael, Graham, Juniper, and their handsome pup, Franklin at Hammonasset Beach State Park. They were adventurous enough to drive from Boston to one of my favorite beaches for their session. I still can't get over how incredible it all was.

This is definitely not the time of year to have the beach to yourself, but we did and it was perfect. It was as if we put a ginormous sand box in front of Juniper and said "now, go play". She was in her glory running around.

Graham and Rachael, you are amazing parents and Juniper is so lucky to have you! Thank you for letting me help document this part of your story together. Your story, and the album we created, are everything :)

The SoHo, Manhattan Family Session of Molly & Ethan : NY Family Photographer

Well, now I know - energetic kids and street art are a GREAT mix! From wall to wall to wall, Molly, Ethan, and I made our way down one of the streets in SoHo finding exciting art spaces to photograph in front of. Street art and graffiti make a fantastic back drop and this sister and brother duo enhanced the coolness factor. We were looking for a love wall for Molly, but to our disappointment, someone had recently painted over it so we scoped out new places that worked perfectly. Having a passion for art, Ethan fit right into the Art Is My Healing wall. Molly looked awesome in front of everything we found!

For someone who is found photographing at the beach so much, I found these graffiti walls to be a fantastically colorful step outside my norm. Thank you to Molly, Ethan, and especially their mom, Jennifer, for introducing me to such a great location. What a blast!

I can't wait for the next time!
