|"A photograph keeps a moment from running away"
Even though every milestone in a child's life is important, senior year seems to be right at the top. It's such a life passage ~ heading out of the house and on to new adventures. It's bittersweet. I am so happy that Gina understands the value and importance of capturing not just this moment in Ben's life, but also the family memories of being this strong, loving unit.
I love this session and this family to pieces! Gina, I am SO happy you contacted me to photograph your family. Being with the three of you, and Banner of course, was such a joy for me. You have done an amazing job raising these two incredible kids. It's so clear how much you all love each other.
With gorgeous light coming through the trees in their backyard, it was the perfect setting for their session. It was all working :)
Thank you again to Gina, Ben, and Celia for being so photogenic and allowing me to document this special moment for your family! What an amazing way to commemorate Ben's senior year and celebrate your bond before Ben heads off on new adventures next fall. I wish you all the best!
|Rainy Days have their perks!
When the M family asked me to take some family photos at the beautiful Greenwich Country Club, I was beyond excited!
The day started out with a little drizzle, and then quickly turned into a light misting rain. But that didn’t stop us from having fun! We hopped in golf carts and made our way to a gorgeous spot on the grounds where I got to work taking all sorts of family photos. Kennedy (5), Grant (19 months), and baby boy Curtis (1 month) were all smiles despite the dampness in the air. Plus, they were joined by their wonderful grandparents, which made for some truly amazing generational photos.
The best part about shooting in such wet weather? We had the place to ourselves! That meant we could enjoy one of the prettiest spots on the course without holding any golfers up. And even though there was a little rain, everyone still had plenty of energy for photos.
It's always an adventure when it comes to photography sessions, but when you add rain into the mix, things can get a bit wilder—in the best possible way! This was not your average photo shoot, but it resulted in some truly incredible shots that will be cherished forever.
|Gianna, "Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and twice as beautiful as you'd ever imagined"!
Gianna will be heading on a new journey in her life soon, and I was so excited to be a part of it by photographing her senior photos. Along with her mom Terry and sister Megan, it was an absolute blast to get together for Gianna's senior photos. These three are very special to me!
For Gianna's session, we wanted to make sure that the images reflected her personality and individuality. We found a great spot where we could match the incredible outdoor light with her inner light. Both warm and beautiful! After all, when it comes down to it, senior photos are about capturing each person's unique spirit – which is exactly what we did for Gianna!
As I reflect on Gianna’s photo session, I am filled with joy knowing her and how beautiful she is, inside and out. Capturing these moments means so much more when it involves such an incredible young lady like her! I am so excited to see what fantastic things the future has in store for Gianna!
Gianna, I wish you all the best as you get ready for this next stage of your life —you deserve nothing but success and a bright happy future!
|Kristan, Sean, Emily and Maeve made their way to the sunny shores of Branford to visit Kristans' parents and have their family photo session with yours truly. I have been photographing them for several years now and each time is better than the last! It's become a wonderful tradition that I really look forward to!
Grandad, Stan, put his assistant hat on right away and helped me with lighting while providing comedy relief throughout the session. He always makes me laugh!
Maeve and Emily have the most beautiful twin sister bond and are so snuggly and giggly together. I see these two growing up together as best friends, always laughing and having each others back!
Sisters take care of each other, watch out for each other, comfort each other, and are there for each other through thick and thin. That's what I see for Emily and Maeve.
Kristan's parents have the best spot for our yearly sessions. We wait until the sun gets lower in the sky and off to their beach we go. Incredible!
Working with Kristan, Sean, Emily and Maeve is always such an amazing experience – they are so full of life and love! I am so grateful that I get to capture these memories for them; memories that will last a lifetime!
|This past Fall, I had the wonderful opportunity to join Jamie, Fergus, Theo, and Fergus' parents at East River State Park in Brooklyn for a family photo session. It was a beautiful afternoon, windy and a good crowd of people around, but nice and we were able to find some quiet spots out of the wind. We managed to capture some gorgeous photographs! Plus, it was so much fun getting to know this fun family.
They were so welcoming and easy-going, which definitely made the photo session much more enjoyable for everyone involved. And the fact that Theo's grandparents were visiting from England and were able to have photos taken with their granddaughter made it extra special and truly heartwarming. It's been really difficult for so many grandparents to see their grandchildren during Covid. That's what made this trip from England to New York even more wonderful for Fergus' parents. Now they will have memories of their time together for years to come.
It's moments like these that make life so special!
