Together, they decided…

Liliana ~ Fall at the Waterfall Family Photoshoot

Check out the stunning colors of this late fall session! We wanted spectacular fall leaves, but we were at the last weekend of peak foliage. On a whim, I thought we’d try this pretty waterfall location. Even if the leaves were on their way out, the water gently cascading down the rocks would not disappoint….

Michael ~ Behind the Scenes of a Family Photoshoot

Sometimes, even the best intentions don’t go as planned, which is especially true when it comes to little ones. For this shoot, Mom and Dad planned a fall photo session with me to capture Michael at 6 months of age. They had the outfits picked out, we settled on a location, we went over their…

Cole ~ Glastonbury Maternity & Family Photographer

Anytime I see a returning family’s name pop up in my messages or on my phone I get so excited! It’s like getting a call from a friend you haven’t seen in ages. You can’t wait to catch up, hear their voice, and find out what’s been going on in their life since you last…

Madelyn ~ One-Year-Old Family Photo Shoot

I’m always surprised at how well kids (usually) handle the weather. For this family shoot, Mom, Dad, & I were so cold! We wiggled around and pulled our sweaters tight, but 16-month old Madelyn and her 3.5-year-old brother Nathan seemed unfazed. We didn’t get a ton of smiles, but they seemed so content and handled…

Bradley ~ Fall Family Photos on the Farm

This was an extra fun and unique family shoot! I traveled to this gorgeous small family-owned horse farm to take some fall portraits. He is a farrier (shoes horses), and the entire family rides regularly. I was a little jealous of their amazing farm life—I think it would be amazing to take my horse out on…

Zane ~ Second Child Newborn Photo Session

Sometimes life doesn’t go quite the way we think it should. We make so many grand plans only to get stuck at roadblocks we didn’t even know existed. I know that family planning seems that way for many couples. Adoptions don’t go through, pregnancies don’t go the way we had hoped, or we go years…

Mommy’s Wedding Dress Sessions

When I got married almost 20 years ago, I lovingly preserved my wedding gown so that my daughters could possibly wear it again on their wedding day. I now realized that all of my girls are going to be several inches taller than me. So unless they want to wear a tea-length gown, they are…

Because We All Love Fairies When We are Young

Last year, I offered a Limited Edition Enchanted Session where little girls played in the forest and got to experience the magic of fairies. Because we all love fairies when we are young! It was a great success and all of the girls that took part absolutely loved it. These two young ladies were out…

Passing Down Memories and Making New Ones

This Enchanted Session was one of my favorites. You see, Mom tossed and turned over doing the session because when you have four kids, things like this can be hard. Especially when only one of your kids is going to get to do it. But in the end, she and her husband decided that it…

How to Make a Real Life Fairy Girl

This little beauty really surprised me and Danielle of Danielle Marie Photography during her Enchanted Session. One of the first things she told us was that although she was wearing a dress today, she really wasn’t a “dress-kind-of-girl.” So I thought she was going to be a little tomboy. Now I was a tomboy growing…

Magical Children’s Photos

These three sisters made this Enchanted Session so adorable and fun. We took all of these magical children’s photos in the woods off of the Bell Trail in Glastonbury, in the early afternoon. They were all so eager to pretend and go along with everything Danielle and I asked of them. They got some of…

Sometimes, You Just Gotta Break the Rules!

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….

How to Make the Most of a Birthday Party at Home

Birthday parties are special events in our family because we don’t have them every year. Sure, we celebrate our kids’ birthdays every year, but the big pomp of a party that includes all of their friends is something we want them to see as special not expected. It also must be noted that since the…

The Benefits of Growing Up Yankee | Southington, Connecticut Family Children Photographer

I will totally admit that my heart broke a little when I realized that moving to Connecticut meant that my kids wouldn’t experience growing up in the South. The first time I heard Superhero call after a group of friends on the playground and say, “hey, wait up you guys,” I almost gasped out loud. In…

Leaves, the Dog, and Games Make Gorgeous Family Portraits | Family Children Photographer Glastonbury, Connecticut

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…

Freezing in the Forest Gets You Fantastic Fall Photos | Family Children Photographer Glastonbury, Connecticut

This was one of those days that I literally thought I was going to turn into a human popsickle. I wore 4 layers of clothing and was in awe when this little family pulled off their coats and started having fun. The girls reminded me of shy little fairies, eager to have fun but taking…

Maternity and Family Fall Pictures at Horse Barn Hill, University of Connecticut | Maternity Family Photographer

We were cutting it close getting this family’s fall pictures taken, and not just because our leaves are rapidly leaving the trees! Momma was only 3 weeks away from delivering her little bundle of joy on this chilly Saturday afternoon.
