A Bond For Life

I have the best job. Really. I have been so lucky to work with the most wonderful people that always add more joy to my day. This session was no exception. These kids teased each other, drove tractors around, joked with me, made snowballs and even started an attack on dad! In spite of all the mischief that's typical to kids at this age you can tell they have a special bond. It was awesome to spend some time with a family that so clearly enjoys their time together. It reminded me of how thankful I am for my family; for my sister and brother. The bond siblings share is unique and one that I am extremely grateful for. I love to think that these kids will only grow closer as the years go on. Aren't they a beautiful bunch?

How They Grow!

I will never stop being amazed by the little hands and tiny fingers, spontaneous giggles and extraordinary light that comes from little ones. I often wonder how it's possible that I was ever that size, how any of us were that small once. So innocent and so full of wonder. During photo sessions I often find myself standing in awe of these fascinating little creatures. Their innocence and wonder makes me wish I could remember who I was when I was that small. How it felt to be so wide eyed and unaware of myself. The younger years fade away too fast and before we know it these moments become memories. For my part, I just keep trying to stop time for families with babies that are growing way too fast. The last time I saw Ella she was just 3 months old. It's 3 months later...she's changed so much, and surely too fast for her parents!

Giving Thanks

Tomorrow is a big day. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays of the year. Who doesn't look forward to the mounds of delicious stuffing, turkey and apple and pumpkin pies? But there's so much more than piles of food that make Thanksgiving a favorite of mine. It's the opportunity to feel gratitude for health, the freedom we have to make our dreams come true and wonderful friends and family in our lives. I am grateful beyond words for all that I have and will spend the day reminding those that make my life better how thankful I am to have them. Life is good...really good!

Before I take off for the holiday weekend I wanted to share a few pics from a recent session. We went to the pumpkin patch in pursuit of the perfect pumpkin. I'm not sure we found it, but it was lots of fun looking!

He's a handsome little man, isn't he?


In hot pursuit of the great pumpkin...


Now go spread thanks and stuff yourselves silly!

Blog Slacking

I've done it again. I've neglected my blog and my loyal readers...boooo. I've never been so busy and in the interest of making deadlines for clients I have let my blog efforts slack. So it's for good cause that I've been MIA from the blog world right? I've had some really fun sessions in the last few months and can't wait to share some the images from them. Once I dig through them all, I'll be putting them up so check back soon! In the meantime I wanted to share one recent image that I just love.



Be well until the next time...

Sarah & Chris

As individuals Sarah and Chris are beautiful...together the are even more so. Watching them together they are full of spirit and bursting with love and on their wedding day, they were more radiant than ever. Sarah has spunk that I imagine will entertain and challenge Chris for years to come. But for his part, he seems well suited to handle anything she throws his way. I just know they'll be having fun for years to come.

Best of Times

It has been a crazy season and there's no sign of things slowing down any time soon. Just back from a wedding in New York City, Tom and I are getting ready to leave tomorrow for another in Puerto Rico at the beautiful El Conquistador Resort. It's been an incredibly busy but exciting season of weddings that have brought us to many great cities and introduced us to wonderful, new friends along the way. I can't express my gratitude to all the couples, their families, and friends that have welcomed us into their special day as extended family members. It has truly been a season rich with experience, laughter, and good times. I know I'm getting ahead of myself as wedding season isn't over yet, but I figured now is as good a time as any to reflect on what a good summer and season it's been...the best of times.

Before I take off for paradise I'll leave you with a pic of a new friend I met along the way. Isn't that the sweetest face?

Farewell til the next time.

One Week

Lula is one week old today. It's unbelievable how much she's changed already! We had a brief visit yesterday. She squirmed around a little bit, inspected my face as I held her, and mostly just napped. I spent some time starting at her, being fascinated by the purity of this new little person I held in my arms. Simply amazing. Here she is looking adorable and oh-so-sleepy!

Kaitlin & Stephen

When I think back to Stephen and Katilin's wedding the first thing that comes to mind is the image of them teasing each other and having a good laugh together. On a day that can stress many brides and grooms, Kaitlin and Stephen approached the day lighthearted and full of spunk. It was a joy to work with them and to spend the day shooting such a carefree couple. I couldn't help but feel a little bit lighter in their presence. I think the pictures say it all.

Welcome to the World Lula!

8/18/08 12:38am

Little Lula made her grand entrance, finally! She kept us waiting, arriving over a week late, but she was well worth the wait. Aside from her shriveled feet (from staying in the "oven" too long) she is beautiful from head to toe. The doctor said she's perfect. I snapped picture after picture but spent so much time at the hospital I've only pulled a few of my favorites of Lula's first 12 hours. I'll be sure to get more up asap so all of you out of towner's can get a good look at her.

love you all!

Ella

Ella is teeny tiny and absolutely adorable. At 3 months old she's quiet and sweet. She's the kind of baby that makes you think having a newborn is easy work. During our session she barely made a peep. Mostly she spent her time staring in awe at the camera. From the looks she kept giving me I'm pretty sure she was wondering what the heck that big thing was that I kept pointing at her! When she wasn't looking at me with her quizzical face, I caught her being her cute self.

Camille & Steve

Camille and Steve knew they'd found something special when they first met. It didn't take them long to decide they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. And when you see them you know there's something special between them. They planned a beautiful June wedding in Simsbury, Connecticut complete with family, friends, birthday cakes for both of them and pink roses and peonies everywhere. It was simply wonderful. Tom and I were honored to be a part of their special day and loved every minute of working with them.

Allison & Molly

The bond between a mother and child is something that I always feel so grateful to witness. Molly and Allison's connection is undeniable. They threw rocks together, walked by the water, and made dandelion wishes. A few times Molly snuggled into Allison's arm or leg or wherever she could reach just to be close to her mommy. It was so sweet. And when Allison put Molly's hand on her belly to feel her soon to arrive little brother or sister Molly had to check her own belly to see if it was just like mommy's! I enjoyed the time we spent together so much...just look at how adorable they are together!
