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…

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…

Toughing It Out for Fabulous Fall Family Portraits | Glastonbury, CT Baby Photographer

“We are going to be blue,” said this Mom as we were looking at the weather forecast for Saturday. After just getting her daughter home from yet another surgery, their fall family portrait session was finally coming up this weekend. And the forecast was to be overcast, windy and cold. But, it was now or…

Turning a Family Walk into Beautiful Photographs

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…

Laughter, Love and a Furry Brother. Who Could Ask for More?

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…

The More the Merrier! Dogs, Cousins, and a Lot of Laughter.

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…

Bubbles, Green Grass and a Little Backyard Flying Make Great Summer Family Photos

Some of my favorite photography sessions are those where I get to hang out with a family that I’ve worked with before. This family is a member of my Baby Club and since little Mason here just turned 6 months old, and his sister just turned 3, it was time to do another session. Given…

One last thing before we go. . .

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…

Those Special Moments

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…
