Connecticut pet photography, New Haven County dog portraits

On Wednesday I got to meet this crew, a family of five–two people, three big dogs (and a friend of theirs who kindly came to help).  The dogs were excited, but so well behaved–you can tell how strong their connection is to their people by the way they listen to them, and look to them for cues: how to behave, whether something is safe.  It’s a special kind of person who adopts a dog who may not have long to live, which is the case with Arlo; though you wouldn’t know it from his wonderful disposition and joyful exuberance!  Diesel (brown/white) LOVES the ball, so we have lots of shots of him waiting intently for his mom to toss it.  And it’s his birthday today, happy birthday, Diesel!  Arlo (German shepard) has the sweetest eyes, and is being inducted as an honorary Hamden Police dog on Monday (his mom has a bucket list for him: amazing).  And Lazarus is such a love, so I wanted to capture some shots of the affection going both ways–scratches by his mama, kisses for her in return.  Thanks for a great session, guys!

Connecticut family photography, Connecticut shoreline holiday photos

We had magical light on Sunday, with fall colors lining the marsh grasses and so much exploring to do of crabs, stones, and berries.  Each of the children in this family has his or her unique look, each of them beautiful in their own way.  Their warmth as a family was mirrored by the warmth of the foliage and sunlight.  Thank you for a wonderful session, guys!  Lots more to come!

Connecticut family photography, holiday card photos in Darien

It’s so much fun to photograph the people close to your heart!  We braved the wind for a beach session in Darien on Saturday, and it was worth it–the light was just gorgeous!  And it was still warm, a hint of fall in the air, but still feeling a bit like late summer :).  These two cuties had fun climbing the rocks, and were delighted when mom said they could take their tights and shoes off :).  Lots more to come, guys!

Connecticut family portraits, New Haven children’s photos, holiday portraits

Aaaaa look at the expressions on these two cuties!!!  We were so happy that there were still apples to be picked this weekend, as our first session date was a rain-out.  But this past weekend was just PERFECT, and I had so much fun “searching” for apples with this little guy (and his baby brother, of course!).  Those little details make me smile: the way big brother has his little fingers intertwined in photo 1, how pleased baby brother looks about getting to actually eat an apple, and in the photo immediately after that one, the way he’s got one foot resting on the other (will he habitually stand like that when he’s big brother’s age?).  Childhood is so fleeting–I’m so lucky to get to capture it!!!  Thank you for a great session guys!!
