First Birthday Session


Any parent will tell you that when it comes to kids, time flies.  A day can seem long, but a year will go by in a flash.  I cannot believe that this little girl turned one.  She is sweet, adorable, and happy.  She is a true second child moving along through life letting her presence be known and keeping her big brother on his toes.  When her big brother turned one, we did family photos in the park.  This was such a fun way to commemorate another first birthday.  We had a gorgeous morning and the roses were all in bloom.  It was the perfect day to play in the grass and celebrate a birthday.

Cousins–At Elizabeth Park


Family Photo Session

Elizabeth Park, West Hartford, CT

We had an awesome evening session last week in the park.  The three kids were funny, excited, energetic,  and a blast to photograph.  Claire and Beckett are three and a half year old twins.  There little cousin, Theo, is just shy of two.  They are all at such adorable ages to capture with the camera.  The kids played well with each other and encouraged each other to smile big and play for the camera.  They all did a great job together.  We even got the moms and Grandma to jump into a few photos.  This session was done so their Mimi (Grandma) could have some nice photos of her grandchildren for her home.  Sadly she lives a plane ride away, but hopefully these photos will keep her smiling on a daily basis.  I can’t seem to pick a favorite since I love so many of them.  Thanks everyone for such a fun evening in the 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!
