Snowy Mini Session

Snowy Mini SessionWhat a fun weekend ! I had several mini holiday sessions and we were blanketed with our first snow here in Litchfield County, Ct. Making the photo sessions truly winter/holiday inspired. Everyone (including me) was pretty excited about the first snowfall. Especially, though the kids and their adorable puppy! A snowy mini session was just what I needed to get into the holiday spirit! Snowy Mini SessionSnowy Mini SessionSnowy Mini SessionSnowy Mini SessionSnowy mini sessionSnowy Mini Session

New Born Session in Roxbury, CT

Meet The Hershey family, A sweet family of four, with the addition of their new baby boy! I thought I would share a few of my personal favorites with you. I love the candid ones of big brother looking over his new baby brother, so sweet.  Infants are so fun to take pictures of, the tiny toes and hands, and always so peaceful looking. While toddlers, well, getting them to smile and sit still with a new baby is a bit challenging. You could tell there was a lot of adjustment going on for big brother, and while he was sweet and tender with his little bro, he wanted no part of a family picture. There were a lot of tears, but in the end, I was super happy with some of the really candid moments. Because that is what it is all about, right? The REAL moments! Also sweet, mom had her sisters visiting, so I was able to get a picture of baby with his Aunts and mom! I love that they all look so much alike. The best part about a family lifestyle session is the time I can spend, taking pictures of the little things, getting dressed, and everyday activities. newborn session infant photo session in CTinfant photo shoot family lifestyle session family

Preferred Vendors 2018

 

Swedish inspired Barn weddingHello! I thought I would update my personal vendor recommendations for the 2018 season. The common thread is excellent service and gorgeous taste. As for the food and catering, I am very picky. I eat and taste the food at each wedding:). Note most of these caterers offer vegan and vegetarian as well. There are so many amazing vendors out there! My best advice is to make sure you like their style taste the food, e Some florists love to use native and farm-grown flowers, some caterers use local farm produce, etc.. Ask questions, and follow on Instagram to see what they do (check out who I follow). Some are local to Litchfield County,  CT. others serve all of New England. I have added a few from last year, so take a peak at some of the local new venues!

Event Coordination + Planers:  Sorries & Revelry, Amy Champagne , Infinite Events, Jubilee Events, Eileen Smith EventsTrue Events.

Florists: Sara Worden Natural Design, Floral designs by Justine Ashleigh’s Garden, Just for you floral design, Hannah Floral Design, Jaclyn Iris flowers.

Food: JP Gifford Market & Catering, Executive Cuisine, CT Wedding Group, Cloud 9, and Garelick & Herbs  Alternative:  Big Green pizza Truck, Skinny Pines pizza truck, and El Camion Taco truck.

Desserts + Cakes: Cakeore & Co, Erica O’Brian Cakes, Amanda Bakes,   

Local venues: South Farms, Candlelight Farms, The Mayflower Grace, Winvian. Vineyards: Chamard, Hopkins, Jonathan Edwards, Saltwater Farms, Lyman orchards.  The Barns at Wesleyan hills, The Lace Factory, and Wadsworth Mansion to name a few. There are a ton more I have worked at and love, I couldn’t possibly list them all. I love outdoor, beautiful settings of all kinds and have photographed weddings and receptions at most of the yacht clubs and country clubs around Connecticut. Mystic, s, Newport, and many Rhode Island locations are also a favorite travel for me. Looking for a new barn venue? Waldingfield Farm is now hosting weddings. Small weddings, (I think under 100). And the landscape is gorg, and the barn is brandy new. Contact Patrick Horan. *see picture above, or visit out styled shoot here.

SHOP SMALL SATURDAY

FINE ART PRINTS

I am hoping everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving, gathering with friends & family, and are comfortably still full (like me). I actually fasted on Friday, not because of any fad diet, but I was still so full I couldn’t imagine putting another bite of food in my mouth!

I am offering a discount on all the prints at the prints shop. Is it just me, or is everyone sort of hating on Black Friday sales? I just don’t see the point, when you can shop in PJ’s at home watching Netflix…I am hoping you all will take advantage of shopping small today at your local shops, and support small business. Mom and Pop shops, and even your favorite Etsy shop.

Check out my new prints (beach pictures from Wellfeet Ma. A portion of the proceeds from this sale will be going to saving the wales, a passion of mine since I was a young child. You’ll receive 10% off any print, and free shipping through November 30th at midnight. Just use code #shopsmall

Thank you so much for your continued support of my art, it is a beautiful thing to have clients who not only support me, by hiring me for family photo sessions year after year, but those who have my art hanging on their walls.

I am super happy at how this whole shoot came together, given we planned it in just a few weeks. The vendors I work with are beyond talented, and each one brought their own bit of style to the shoot, both in styling, and creatively on their own, with just a few images, and a bit of a background on the Swedish aesthetic. The holiday part was a no-brainer, we all love a winter themed wedding, and had never seen it done in a very subtle way, one which doesn’t scream Christmas. The color pallet was inspired from the colors of the Dalha horses, and also many of Karl Larsen’s paintings. Out other inspiration came from the more modern Scandinavian  design, which is clean lines, very simple, and somewhat boho. We mixed the graphics of the Turkish Kilim, and the rustic table with more modern Eames chairs. For winter, a bit of Hygee pronounced “HUE-gah” (best word ever). Loosely translated it means cozy.

We decided on two different looks. One more rustic, with a “barn” country feeling, AKA the Red Hunter boots, for that pop of color. And the second, a more traditional gown, with the gorgeous blue suede Kate Spade shoes.

Changing the look, we swapped the traditional garden roses, and cafe au lait dahlias, for a hand-picked bright yellow yarrow, which is the color of Sweden’s flag.

We love that the simple boho hair goes with both looks, up or down, or braided, and that pop of red for the lip is just too perfect for the holiday. Don’t you think?

A big thank you to the creative talent involved, and all the hands that came together to make this happen in such a short amount of time.  A special thank you to my dear friend Kerri, for helping contribute ! Not only a lot of furniture, as well as design expertise, regarding everything Swedish! Our Gorgeous model (my dear cousin) for modeling and having so much fun with it!

I hope you can find some inspiration from the pics, either for a wedding, a holiday party, or just to look at some pretty. We all need that now & then!

Ava is Ten!

As with many of my clients we stayed in touch. When their daughter was born ten years ago, they called me to do her infant and baby pictures. Every year since I have documented Ava as she grows up. This year was  a big one-TEN YEARS OLD! I can’t express what it means to me in words, except to tell you I got a bit teary-eyed when I saw her. And that picture of mother and daughter, makes me teary (happy cry) each time I look at it. If you are curious to look back on a few shoots over the years, check out this, this and this post!
