The S Family Session- Family Portraits West Hartford, Connecticut

I always love when I get to photograph my friends and their families, so I was very happy to have one of my good friends from college come up this past weekend for a photo session with her husband and their two beautiful little girls. Despite the very chilly temps, we were still able to get some great photos of the family and the girls as well.

Here are a few of my favorites from our session together:

A Senior and Family Combined Session- West Hartford Senior Portrait and Family Photographer

I had the opportunity to photograph three siblings this past weekend in a combined senior portrait and sibling/family session. This is a wonderful option for families who would like to do a more quick and casual senior session, but would also like to add in some shots of the siblings together before their graduating senior heads off to his/her post high school adventures.

These kid were truly wonderful to work with and they really made my job very easy to do. This session is also a perfect example of how photo shoots do not need to be over styled and posed to be fabulous. You just need great natural light, a scenic location, and a relaxed atmosphere. With a session like that, you can’t go wrong!

Mom and Her Boys- West Hartford Family Photographer- Family Portraits

I had the opportunity recently to photograph a mom and her two adorable boys in the park. It was so fun to watch the boys as they made each other laugh, climbed trees, explored under rocks… They were full of fun and energy, which makes for a very enjoyable shoot. Lots of fun moments to capture!

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 N Family Session- West Hartford Family Portrait Photographer

As is common in October, my time becomes really limited due to it being my busy season and I often take a break from posting on my blog while I try to keep up with all my shoots. But today, I have a few free minutes, so I’d love to share some photos that I’ve recently taken. This was a family that I met and photographed for the first time. The weather and foliage were perfect that day, so we were super lucky to have our first shoot together that day. Here are a few of my favorites from our session:

The E Family Session- West Hartford Family Photographer

I had a session last week with one of my returning clients, who’s daughters I’d photographed for the first time last fall. This a very gorgeous family, so it is basically impossible to take a bad shot of them 🙂 Here are a few of my favorites (especially the one of the sisters cracking each other up! I love those little pauses in between the poses that allow for those special moments to occur) …

The D Family Session in the Park- Family Photographer West Hartford, CT

A couple of weeks ago, I had a session with one of my returning client families who have since had another adorable daughter since our first family portrait session together. The girls were so much fun to photograph and it was really tough for me to even choose which photos were my favorites from our session. Here are my top favorites to share with you today….

The B Family’s Fantastic Fall Session- West Hartford Family Photographer

I met up with one of my families for a fabulous fall photo shoot a couple of weeks ago. We had amazing weather and the foliage was just starting to turn! So many people call me during these last two weeks of fall, looking to book a session (like this one) when they see how amazing the fall leaves look. However, I always have to turn people away because my peak season sessions are already booked up long before the leaves even start to turn at all! So for anyone looking to book with me for fall 2016, the best time to contact me is anytime between July and early September to get on my calendar for a “peak season” fall foliage shoot. Try to remember when you are about to head out for your summer vacation, drop me an email before you go:-)
