Last week was Elana and Scott’s 15 year anniversary.  They decided to celebrate by spending a little time with us!  The family made the drive out to Granby in time to catch the nicest light of the day.  It was a fun session full of laughs, a few bugs, and beautiful photos.  It was a pleasure to meet the family.  I hope Jake and I provided enough entertainment to help commemorate this momentous day.  Happy anniversary to the both of you!

“Dress for the Sess”

Hello Summer, it is so nice to see you!!

With the warmer weather and longer days, it is the perfect time to think about family photos and engagement sessions. The most frequently asked question I receive is “what should we wear?” This is an important question with an answer to which I will give a lengthy response, share my opinion, and give some examples. Taking this advice for your session does require some effort. Viewing your photos and deciding that you didn’t wear the appropriate clothes will instantly change your feelings on your photography session. Those photos will likely end up stored and forgotten. Therefore, you will be happy you put the time into outfitting yourself, your partner, and your family.

We had a fun weekend with this family.  Friday we headed over to the synagogue to take a few photos of Rabbi Plavin to document his retirement.  His family flew in from all over to celebrate his life’s work and the end of a long career at the temple.  The synagogue has beautiful grounds and it was a beautiful evening for photographs.  On Sunday we met up with another side to the family at the Hebrew Home.  We went there to photograph four generations of family from Great Grandma to the newest addition of a grand daughter to a family full of boys.  All weekend everyone was welcoming and fun to photograph.  We really enjoyed meeting everyone, and we hope you enjoy the photos.

Mini Sessions–Granby, CT Private Land

Mini Sessions

 

Last summer we bought a new home out in the country.  It is a bit farther out than we had originally set out to be.  However with each season that passes we love the country more and more.  Now that spring is in full bloom, we decided that home would be a great place to hold mini session.  Our girls have been attending school in Simsbury for a couple years.  We love the school community and really enjoy all of the families we meet.  We thought it would be nice to have a day of mini sessions just for families at school.  Here are a few photos from the day.  We had such a great time capturing the kids and learning to love our land even more.  Hopefully there will be many more mini sessions to come.
