Pittsfield, MA Maternity Session – Kelly & Brett

Before this winter storm came through, I was VERY lucky to be doing an outdoor session in January. It doesn’t happen very often – maybe never! And I was VERY lucky to be doing the session with this beautiful woman! If you can believe it, this is baby #4 for Kelly. I have done her maternity and 1st year pics with all 3 of her kids and now will do the same for baby #4. When I arrived at her house chaos was erupting. Kids were playing hide and seek on me and the dog was running off with one my shoes. And despite all this, she was ready to go and looked amazing! Literally glowing. We did some pics inside with the kiddos and then just Kelly, Brett & I headed to the nature trail area down the road. I am honored that they call me back time and time again to capture their family with each growing step. I am so lucky to have such wonderful clients who value photography and make it a priority for themselves and their children.


Tips for Writing Your Own Vows

I came across this great article featured on Style Me Pretty the other day. Writing your own vows can be a tough task because you want to say the perfect thing. I mean, it’s your wedding day and you’re professing your love and intentions to your soon to be husband or wife and all your family and friends. No pressure! I thought this article gave some great advice. I’ve photographed plenty of weddings were couples have written their own meaningful vows. It’s so special and unique. If you’re considering this I highly suggest this article!

Heritage Hotel Wedding Southbury, CT – Jay & Kate

As I mentioned last week I’m going to be doing weekly posts to share some of the fantastic weddings and sessions I’ve had over the past year. And this wedding was nothing short of fantastic! Kate and Jay had a gorgeous spring wedding at the beautiful Heritage Hotel in Southbury, CT. I just adored their first look. Kate looked absolutely stunning and when Jay got a glimpse of her, it brought tears to his eyes!
It was my first time shooting at the Heritage and I was very impressed by the grounds and photo ops we found. The Heritage does a beautiful job curating the area they have set up for outdoor ceremonies. It made a great backdrop for the photos. Thank you Melissa Ball Photography for 2nd shooting this wedding and to Kate & Jay for allowing us to document their day!


That dress….




Just love this first look


These are some of the most unique flowers I’ve seen





Kate spent time collecting vintage brooches for all the bouquets. Each bridesmaid had a pin of their initial on the burlap of their flowers. I thought it was a special touch!


Kate’s dad was so sweet and supportive to her throughout the whole day. I don’t think he stopped smiling!




I loved that natural rock “stage” set up for the ceremony




Birch tree cake? Yes please!


Middletown Engagement Session – Olivia & Jordan

Happy New Year everyone! It’s the perfect time for fresh starts, resolutions and setting goals for the new year. I have been busy setting up my business plan for the year and looking ahead at the wonderful couples I’m working with in 2016. I can’t wait to get the wedding season started! My first wedding is with Olivia and Jordan. They’re getting married at the beautiful Danfords Hotel & Marina in Port Jefferson, NY. I thought I would share some of their engagement photos that I took at the Barns at Wesleyan Hills in Middletown, CT. Funny story, the first time I met with them at their consultation we found out quickly that we all live in the same neighborhood and bring our dogs to the same dog parks, etc. (small world!) So the Barns seemed like a perfect spot since it’s in our hometown. Speaking of dogs, their little guy stole the show :) I can’t wait for their spring wedding!
P.S. My first resolution this year is to blog on a weekly basis. Yes, yes… I know. I’m setting tall expectations. But I figure if I actually tell you all that I’m doing this then someone is holding me accountable, right? I have a catalog of photos of my fantastic clients that I NEED and WANT to share. This is not like my diet resolution I make every year that ends by February 1st. I promise.

This is one of the photos they chose to put on their save the dates cards. I love it!

See? What did I tell you. The cutie who stole the show. He was coming to me for scratches in between (and during) pics


Really ducks? Could you be more perfect with your little ducklings in this picture?

Seriously cute


Olivia Is just beautiful! You wouldn’t guess that she was nervous about the photos. And that her and Jordan “can’t take a good photo”. WHAT?!?!




I think this last set is my favorite
