Family Photo Session

Westmoor Park

 

What better way is there to celebrate a holiday weekend and work off all the yummy food than a family photo session.  Although it was a brisk day, the girls were great!  We headed into Weetmoor Park and got them running around so they would forget all about the chilly temps and just have fun.  it worked!  It wasn’t long until they were laughing, smiling, and tossing the jackets aside for some adorable photos. The combination of fall light and tall grass creates beautiful photos that make me smile.  I hope you enjoy smiling through these.

Family Fun At Home

Revisiting families is always the best part of this job.  We love seeing the kids grow and getting the opportunity to document their stages along the way.  We were back at the family house last week to commemorate the start of the school year for Madeline and Ben.  The whole family joined for the occasion.  The grandmas were there for a visit and the family dog made his first camera debut.  Believe or not this large and gorgeous dog is still just a baby.  Jake had fun playing the trampoline, and I had a great time running through the yard.  For us it is always part photography and part play session.  It is a good thing we are still just big kids.

Sophia’s First Birthday

Elizabeth Park, Hartford, CT

Sophia turned one yesterday!  Jake and I had the privilege of spending time with this adorable little one on her birthday.  We laughed and played throughout Elizabeth Park.  It was a sunshine filled day perfect for being outdoors.  If I didn’t already have my hands full with two small children at home, I would have scooped up Sophia and run away with her when Mom and Dad weren’t looking.  She is the cutest!  She giggled for us and put on a show.  She practiced her standing and walking and loved being behind the camera.  She was an absolute blast to photograph.  We were so honored to have been a part of her first birthday celebrations.

Emilie was born just two weeks before our photo session. Jake and I wanted to meet the family and capture those sweet newborn moments that only occur right after a baby is born. And by this I mean those precious, sleepy moments. However Emilie was too excited for her first photos and fun evening with her family to miss the action! I have never seen a little baby wake up and be so alert for the camera. Emilie propped herself up and looked right at Jake for her very first photos. She was adorable and a pro behind the camera.

The D Family–Another Milestone

Dennis Blog - 41

At home in Somers, CT

It is hard to believe how quickly time flies. Jake started with this family at Chris and Liz’s wedding. It didn’t seem that long ago that he photographed their daughter’s baby photos. And now life has brought two kids, a puppy (yes the dog is just a puppy!), and the first day of school. We were very excited to be a part of documenting another milestone for this sweet family. The kids were dressed in their new school clothes with backpacks in hand as they posed for their “first day of school” photos. We followed them around the yard as they ran, jumped, swung, laughed and played. It was a beautiful end of summer evening, and the perfect time for some new family photos. As usual we had a wonderful time with everyone. The kids were awesome subjects and so much fun to photograph. We even made Chris and Liz pose for a photo of their own. It isn’t very often that parents remember to pose together for photos. Once the kids arrive it is all about them. I thought is might be nice for them to put a photo other than one in wedding attire on the wall. We still can’t believe how big the kids have gotten. We look forward to the next round of photos.
