Last night we (I) needed to get out of the house, and a road trip to check out sunflowers was the perfect outing. Also a great backdrop for some much needed pictures of my son. I'm always taking pictures of my daughter and I've noticed I don't have nearly as many shots of him...so that was one of the reasons for taking the camera. Lucky for us, the sun was just right (back lit on the sunflowers) and it wasn't too hot or humid. We stayed at the field for a grand total of 15 minutes and I love every picture that was taken. I figured it might inspire someone to take their family or children's portraits one year at a sunflower field. Next up, we're hitting another cool place up that is in full bloom with Queen Anne's Lace. I'll be sure to post some pictures from that too. Enjoy!
Feast your eyes on double cuteness….twins Emma and Ethan!
I'm super excited to share my first shoot from this past weekend. I've been photographing these adorable twins since they were born- which is such an honor. We had loads of fun exploring the arboretum, it really was a perfect afternoon. I had a hard time picking what to put up here- so there's a lot. Hope you enjoy looking as much as I did photographing!
Since my shoot today was cancelled due to bad weather, I had to do something with my camera. It happened to be sunny back at my place (go figure) so I opted to take my daughter down to the local arboretum for a few shots. Enjoy!
Last night I met up with my super talented artist friend and fellow blogger of The Asylum for her annual family portraits. This year we wanted an equestrian look, but of course with a twist! I believe Catherine took it to the next level with the chic outfits everyone wore juxtaposed with our earthy surroundings. I had so much fun working with the whole gang, her kids are amazing in front of the camera (as are the parents!). So happy with the outcome- hopefully you enjoy the eye candy!
So. I found my new favorite place: Kittatinny State Park. Oh. My. God. Its so magical looking right now with the fields of wild flowers- its like a dream coming to life. I was very excited to head to this place with one of my favorite families--these guys were dressed so perfectly for the surroundings. I can't believe how old Grace and Georgia are getting, I've been shooting them since they were babies. Where does the time go? Hope you like my preview....
This weekend I met up with Andrew and Sophie for their fall photo shoot. We had a gorgeous (yet windy!) afternoon and these guys rocked it for the camera. I'm loving the results...enjoy!
Last night I met up with Noah, Josh and Natalie for a sunset photo shoot. The moment I saw these guys (and their parents) I was super excited. I loved how their mom styled everyone in summery, fresh looks. As I scouted their yard for a place to shoot, I noticed a beautiful field across the street that was being lit by the setting sun....so obviously we HAD to use that as our backdrop! In the end, I am very happy with our results...enjoy!
Here is the last of my Connecticut fall portrait day shoots....with Vinci and Gia. We did the shoot at the Stamford Nature Center- and the animals were out if full effect. I think our girlie girl Vinci was a little on edge when the hens started chasing her! However, you'd never know it from the photos, here's a sneak peak.
Yesterday I met up with an old friend to photograph her family. We figured the Nature Center in Stamford, CT would be the perfect spot to keep her 3 year old happy and preoccupied. Lots of fun was had, animals were pet, and everyone was happy!
This morning I met up with some old friends at the Nature Center in Stamford. I've been shooting this little guy since he was just a few months old-and now he's an independent and very energetic 3 1/2 year old! The trees were hanging on to the last of their leaves, and it was very brisk out-yet the pictures turned out wonderful. Here are some shots from the day...
Yesterday I headed up to Stamford for a family photo shoot. I'd never been to this hidden gem (The Nature Center)-let me tell you, its an awesome place to take pictures at! We had so many beautiful backdrops to work with, and my family was so fantastic to work with. That combination resulted in tons of fun shots-here are some of them....
Today I headed to Chester to shoot these cuties. We did an array of things, finishing the shoot off with a small petting zoo in the yard! It was way too much fun to handle-enjoy looking at some shots:
....I'm sorry, I couldn't resist throwing this guy into the mix with his ridiculous teeth and hair do!
Last Saturday I met an old friend at my mother-in-law's home in Connecticut for a photo shoot. They were coming all the way from New Hampshire-so it was a good middle point for us (plus I love the house and yard for shooting). Anyway, we had a ton of fun catching up and snapping great shots of the kids and family. Here are some faves:
I visited with my friends this past Sunday and couldn't resist doing a small photo shoot with their little 10 month old girl, Talia. After ransacking her closet, this is the outfit we decided on. I love the simplicity of it, it looks like she just got in from a day of skiing or better yet, with this environment, fall farming!
This past Friday I did a shoot at my in-laws house in Oxford, CT. Their yard is an awesome backdrop for pictures...it is a 300 year old farmhouse with tons of character. Lots of fun gardens, a chicken coup, old honeycomb drawers, and across the street is the Housatonic River. The shoot was a complete success, I was so happy with all of the outfit choices Julianna's mom brought with her--we had tons of versatility and the colors just popped in the environment. Here are some of my favorites....
This weekend we celebrated Father's Day and did a photo shoot for my brother-in-law's family. Here are a few pictures of them having fun in front of the camera.
