Sometimes you show up to photograph family and have to figure out how to make things work on the spot. This rambunctious family had both teenagers and babies, and I knew organizing 6 people was going to be a task for Mom and Dad on picture day. So in our pre-session consultation, we decided just…

This time of year in Connecticut, photographers do tons and tons of family photography sessions. And every family tends to want the same thing. . . colorful Fall leaves, everyone smiling at the camera and to look amazing for their yearly Christmas card. This family wanted a little of that, but they also wanted to…

What do you do when you want beautiful Fall family pictures taken, but you have a very playful 6-year-old who only wants to have fun? Well, you make your family photography session a fun-filled exploration of the woods and river! We were so blessed to have gorgeous weather and leaves still on the trees when we…

Sometimes, you can have the deck stacked against you, and with a little prayer, things just work out better than you could ever hope for. This family decided they wanted portraits several months back, but the timing of other events pushed out their session date to the middle of September. No worries, it was still…

When we first tried to do this family’s photography session, it was part of an extended family session. They were kind enough to let everyone else go first, and when it was their turn, the clouds opened up. So we rescheduled, and that next date it stormed. Finally, it was third-times-a-charm! And honestly, I know…

As a photographer that specializes in working with babies and young children, I felt like I was being thrown into the deep end when a friend contacted me to take an extended family portrait for her parent’s 50th anniversary gift. You see, although she had a 7-year-old son, her brother’s family included kids that were…

Now, these are some people I’m going to miss. They have decided to accept an opportunity to live in Brazil for Dad’s work, and they’ll be leaving in a few weeks.  This family befriended me five years ago when I first moved to New England. Their daughter was the same age as my oldest and…

No, you didn’t forget! Well, you almost did, but boy is she going to love you for this Mother’s Day Gift. Every mother wants beautiful photographs of her children, and every mother NEEDS to be in photos with her children. This isn’t just a gift for the mothers in your life, this is a gift…

When I photographed this family last fall, we had such a good time. Throwing leaves and playing games, gave us tons of happy, family portraits. However, it wasn’t until I got a chance to review the images later that I realized we didn’t photograph something very important: Dad, on his own, with each of his…

Snow day. . .again! I know some of you are thinking, what’s the big deal? Day off from school, some sledding and snowman building, and hot chocolate too; sounds like a good deal to me! Yeah, I used to think just like you. Unfortunately, that whole snow-play thing doesn’t last more than an hour folks….

This family lives right next door, so to say I know their kids and backyard is an understatement. When Mom suggested that we just hang out back there to make their fall family portraits, I was so thrilled! Kids really show you their personalities when they are comfortable in their environment, and if they feel…
