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…

            100 Days Old | One Big Happy Photo

            100 days old photo session Happy 100th, Aiden! Well, happy 100th day that is. In lieu of a newborn photoshoot, this family chose to do a session celebrating Aiden’s 100th day per their cultural tradition. The celebration of a baby’s 100th day started long ago in Asian cultures as a way to protect an infant’s health….

              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…

                            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…

                              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…

                                    This family really wanted gorgeous flowers and a park-like setting for their family photography session. But, it was August. Everything was just GREEN now, wasn’t it? But we talked about it and came up with the perfect spot. Aha! Elizabeth Park in West Hartford, Connecticut turned out to be our saving grace. And look at…

                                      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…
