Greyson ~ 1 Year Session with Family Photos and Cake Smash

When you know that cake is coming, it’s pretty hard to be patient through a photoshoot. Sweet little Greyson was a few months over a year old when we did his session. As the saying goes, the days are long, but the years are so very short when it comes to little ones. Before Greyson’s…

Benjamin ~ Mommy and Me Session with a 6 month old baby

Too often as moms we exclude ourselves from the big moments. We are always on it when it comes to photographing our baby’s first steps, birthdays, and milestones – even just daily life – but we’re rarely in those photos. How many photos of playing kids do you have on your phone – with yourself…

Rory ~ Candid 1 year old Family Session

Having recurring clients (who have become real friends) is a family photographer’s dream. Being able to watch families grow through births, first steps, toddler stages, and more is such a joy and an honor. I love my job because it gives me the opportunity to meet new families who are venturing through parenthood and life…

Lucy ~ Valentine’s Day Baby Milestone Session

It was such a pleasure to work with this kind family. They drove an hour to do Valentine’s Day baby milestone session with their daughter Lucy. I figured that since they had invested so much time preparing and traveling for this shoot, we could kind of make it a 3-in-1 session: Christmas photos, Valentine’s Day…

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…

Guilia ~ 9-Month Photoshoot with Family

This little blue-eyed beauty was quite the stoic…until we pulled out a wooden crate and an apple. At this session, I witnessed firsthand why people say that babies would rather play with the box than the toy. Even at just nine months old, baby Guilia knew right away how to flip the box over and…

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…

Lyra ~ Always Bring Snacks – 12 month Milestone Session

This adorable little girl is Lyra (pronounced Ly-ruh). She is now a year old and had just learned to walk. Mom and Dad had me photograph her newborn session last year and wanted to get her 12 month milestone session photographed now that she has grown so much. She’s normally a happy baby who keeps them…

Rory ~ Beautiful Fall Family Photos

This family has literally grown up before my eyes. I’ve photographed them twice a year for the past 3 years, and now their little boy Rory has turned 6 months old. It was just serendipity that his 6-month milestone session landed at the beginning of fall because it’s Mom’s favorite season every year. So we made…

Big Kid Family Photos – Glastonbury CT

And here’s a little departure from our regularly scheduled programming. . . big kids! While I do specialize in newborns and babies, I like to sneak in a family photography session every once in a while because they can be so fun. These kiddos’ dad contacted me in hopes of surprising his wife with a new…

Formal Family Portraits ~ Family Photographer in CT

This family has the sweetest three little girls and Mom told me that they hadn’t had their photos taken in years. Their youngest is just 3 years old though, so I’m sure they’ve had other things occupying their time. But now that she was ready to get them in front of a camera again, she…

Abby ~ Two year old and Family Photos

I have been photographing this family for a few years now, and it has been so sweet watching little Abby grow from a newborn into a big girl. This is the last session of their baby plan, which includes a complimentary family photography session so that you can get two year old and family photos…

Theo ~ Mommy and Me Session | Glastonbury, CT

Theo and his Mom have been working hard lately. They love to keep their home in tip-top shape but they also love to stop and enjoy those sweet moments of together time. As his Mom kept marveling at just how grown up her little boy was becoming, she knew she wanted to capture what their lives…

Arjun ~ Toddler & Family Photography | Ellington, CT

When this Momma contacted me, she really wanted to get photographs of her son before he turned a year old. Little Arjun was 10 months old when these were taken, but he looks so much older! Part of that is his smart little outfits. But as you will see, Arjun is tall (as are both…

Taking the Photo is only Half the Work

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…

Who They Are Already ~ Family Photography Session ~ Glastonbury, CT

I have known this family for 7 years now. And although the Mom and I are very different women, I feel like we’ve been on the same journey as our families have grown and we have gotten older. Their story inspires me because they had a dream of living life with love and children, and…
