Family Session at the Farm- West Hartford Family Photographer

After multiple cancellations due to rainy weather, I was finally able to meet with one of my regular clients to take some fall family photos for them. We had such beautiful weather and the leaves were so gorgeous! As it turned out, all the rainy weather cancellations lead us to the perfect fall day for photos. Here are a few of my favorites from our session:

Home for the Holiday Photo Shoot- Family Photographer West Hartford, CT

I had a fantastic holiday photo session with a family at their home a couple of weeks ago and we were so fortunate to have the most beautiful morning light for our entire session. This was a fun session that included the family dog and lots of smiles and laughter. Here are a few of my favorites from that morning:

Smiles, Laughter, and Family Photos- Family Photographer West Hartford, CT

Last week, I had a great family session with a beautiful baby girl who was delivering the most adorable smiles ever! When her parents would make her laugh, she would squeeze her eyes shut and throw her head back every time. It may have been the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. There is so much great stuff to capture at this age where they are crawling and just about to start walking. The whole world is new and fascinating to them, so it is the perfect time to have take some photos to capture these special moments before they pass by. Here are a few of my favorites from our session:

An Adorable Boy and a Beautiful Sunset- Child and Family Photographer West Hartford, CT

I had a session a few days ago with the sweetest little boy and his parents in West Hartford. We met for a sunset session and the light and weather were both absolutely perfect! This boy was a dream to work with and gave me the perfect mix of “eye contact with a smile” shots and natural, candid shots. For any parents who are debating whether it is worth risking a cranky kid to do a sunset session…let me say this, IT IS WORTH IT!!!! Take a look at how gorgeous the light is in these photos! I had a zillion favorites, but here are just a few that I absolutely had to share:-)

Newborn Girl and Her Baby Elephant- Newborn Photographer Hartford, CT

You may remember this beautiful couple from their Blue Back Square maternity photo session that I posted a couple of weeks ago. They have since given birth to their adorable little girl and brought her over to my studio for a session yesterday. She was a very easy going baby and snoozed through most of ┬áthe photos, which made my job very easy! The three of them make such a gorgeous family and I absolutely LOVE how their family shots came out. They all wore white and it looked gorgeous in the studio light. Usually if a client books an outdoor session, I always recommend they avoid white because it tends to wash out in the photos. However, when we are shooting a newborn session, the focus is really supposed to be almost entirely on the baby. So wearing white in a newborn studio session is actually perfect. Even if it washes out a bit, it actually looks even better that way because it is so clean and simple….just the way newborn sessions are supposed to be:-)

Here are a few of my favorite shots from the session:

Capturing the Moment- Three Generation Family Portrait Session- Family Photographer Farmington CT

I recently was hired by a couple to photograph them with all five of their adult children and their 13 grandchildren. We had a very limited time window to work with so we ended up having to shoot during the harshest sunlight in the day. However, we were fortunate enough to find a couple of shady spots over at the Farmington Club to capture those great group shots we were hoping to get. They were such a fun, sweet family that by the end of our session, I went home and told my husband that we needed to have four more children so that we could also one day have a great big family like theirs:-) I was thrilled to be able to capture this unique moment in time when a family of this size with members living in all different areas were able to come together to reconnect and bond with one another. Here are a few of my favorites from our session:
