We’re Featured!

At a wedding a few weeks back, Jake and I met a lovely writer for the Hartford Courant.  We spoke with her briefly about working as a husband and wife team, raising our two girls ages 2 1/2 and 11 months, and still being able to have fun with each other day in and day out.  While we don’t always think that our life is an interesting love story , Mary Ann thought differently.  She asked to interview us in greater length, and we agreed.  This past Sunday, you could read our love story in the Hartford Courant.  We learn so much about our clients as weddings and family shoots, so we thought it would be nice for us to share a little bit about us with all of you!  Thank you to all of you who keep checking back with us, keep sharing your stories, and continue to allow us to capture a moment in time with your family.  We hope you enjoy learning a little bit about us as we look forward to meeting an learning about new families and couples in the upcoming years.

On Monday Arin turned one!  It was a big milestone for this very adored son, grandson, and nephew, so we documented it with some  photos of this handsome little man.  His grandparents came from India and Texas for the big occasion, and his Aunt and Uncle made the journey to CT as well.  Arin was in great spirits and did excellent cooperating for the camera.  It is hard work to stay focused, energetic, and excited when you are only one, but he did a great job.  The park is always a great spot for kids to explore and have some fun.  It was another great session for us in the beautiful Hartford park.

This sweet family made their blog debut exactly a year ago.  We met them for the first time to take newborn photos of their daughter Emilie.  Now she is a spunky one year old working on her walking!  As usual we had a great time with their son Jake.  He is a kind and energetic kid who is gearing up to start Kindergarten.  He is imaginative, polite, and a pleasure to photograph.  Jake and I were very excited when they contacted us to do another photo session this year.  We headed to Elizabeth Park for a nice park tour and some fun photos.  Enjoy!

Margaret and Nick
August 8, 2015
Hillstead Museum, Farmington, CT

Jake and I had the pleasure of documenting Margaret and Nick’s wedding a little over a week ago.  This was a particularly fun wedding for Jake to be a part of since Margaret and Jake grew up directly next door to each other!  We were so honored to have been included in this spectacular day.  And the day itself could not have been more perfect.  This gorgeous wedding was on the grounds of the Hillstead Museum.  The Farmington Valley countryside offered an incredible backdrop to the event.  This August day had the perfect weather for the perfect afternoon.
