The L Family Session- Family Portraits Hartford, CT

Just met with a wonderful family of four this past weekend for a portrait session in the park. The two little ones in our crew were so adorable and gave me lots of sweet moments to capture throughout our session. I wish I could share all of them, but I will share just a few of my favorites from our session….Enjoy!

The G Family Session 2016- West Hartford Family Photographer

I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to photograph my wonderful friends and their three beautiful children a couple of weeks ago. Aside from them all being very gorgeous and easy to photograph, we had lots of fun together and many laughs as we tried to get the little ones smiling for the camera 🙂 Here are some of my favorite shots from our session…

The G Family Session- Family Portrait Photographer West Hartford, CT

I recently shot a family portrait session with one of my returning clients and their two adorable little boys. We had a fun and active session at a beautiful farm/park location.  During sessions with children that are this young, it is definitely essential to move quickly and capture those little candid moment as much as possible, which is exactly what we did with this shoot. We were even lucky enough to get some excellent posed shots too! Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot:

Beautiful Sisters :-) West Hartford Portrait Photographer

I had the opportunity to photograph two beautiful sisters the other day and they had the most fabulous hair and skin that I’ve maybe ever seen!! They just can’t take a bad photo!

This shoot makes me think about often families stop getting photos taken of their children once they hit middle school age. This shoot should be a reminder of why it is so important to keep taking those photos of your children before they are grown and gone. They may not be little kids anymore, but they are still your babies and you will want to remember them at all phases (on a side note, they are super easy to photograph at this age because they don’t run away from the camera anymore….even if they might want to 😉

Here are a few of my favorites from our shoot:

Toddler Photo Shoots- Child Photographer West Hartford, CT

Photo shoots with toddlers are always the most unpredictable of all shoots…as is anything when it comes to toddlers! So I go into these sessions completely open to following the experience as it flows. No preconceived notions about ideal shots, poses, or specific locations in mind. I basically let the child lead the session and keep an open mind and quick feet throughout. This recent session I had with an adorable toddler boy and his parents was exactly that type of session. We just rolled with the wave of what he was feeling, or not feeling, in that moment….and I am so thrilled with the results!! He was so just so cute and full of curiosity and energy. I loved being able to capture all those genuine emotions in these photos…Here are a few of my favorites:

Spring Sessions Continue…Family Portrait Photographer- West Hartford, CT

More spring sessions to share!! So excited to be back out there shooting again. Here is a little preview of a session I had just a couple of weekends ago. This little man was one of my favorites that I photographed during the Blue Back Square Halloween Stroll photos back in October. He was the very adorable little lion!

Here are a few of my favorites from our first session together….out of costume, this time 🙂

Adorable Twin Girls in Old Wethersfield Center- Family Photographer Wethersfield, CT

About a week and a half ago, I met up with this beautiful family of four to get some family shots and portraits of the twins as well. We shot the session in downtown Old Wethersfield, which was a really great place for a photo session. Twin toddlers can be a bit more challenging to photograph because like all toddlers, they really have no interest in sitting down for even a second and have even less interest in looking at the camera and smiling on cue:-) So when shooting a session with multiple toddlers, it is so important to remain completely flexible and open to letting the shoot unfold as naturally as possible. And that is exactly what we did. I really love the results of this approach because the photos are so genuine and are such a perfect reflection of the girls and the stage they are in now. They are just full of energy and curiosity at this point and I love how these shots really show that.

Here are a few of my favorites from our session:

Brrrrr…First Chilly Session of the Season!- Family Photographer West Hartford, CT

After the beautiful, mild temperatures of October, I can hardly complain about the weather this fall. But I guess the warm weather streak had to come to an end at some point and it finally did last week. The good part is that the little cuties in this session had their cozy scarves, mittens, and hats on for most of the session, which was really adorable and makes for the perfect look for holiday photos and cards for the winter season. Here are a few of my favorites from our session:
