Connecticut portrait photography, holiday card photos

These two always bring awesome giggle and spunk to our sessions together, which makes it so fun for me.  It’s never a question of whether we’ll get authentic expressions and that makes my job so easy!  G’s shirt matched that graffiti just so perfectly, and I loved E’s Santa hat: festive and so perfect for the upcoming season.  Thanks for a great session as always, guys!

I’m very pleased to introduce you to beautiful Vella, who has recently retired from racing and has won the jackpot with these two as her parents :).  She is loving, already completely bonded to them, and loves to race around her yard to get her wiggles out.  She is also a beautiful combination of colors that picked up the tones of the sunset.  Thank you for a wonderful session, guys!  It was a pleasure meeting all three of you!

Connecticut family photography, Connecticut holiday portraits

Even though the grounds behind the Eli Whitney Museum are part of East Rock Park, they will always be the Eli woods to me, from the many times I’ve gone there with my own children (it’s just what we always called that area!).  This family also has two boys, just a bit older than mine, and it was a pleasure to see how they have matured in a bit over a year since the last time I photographed them.  They were game for anything, polite to me and silly with each other (perfect!!), and all-in on the experience, which made it just so easy to get great photos of them.  Thank you for a wonderful session, guys!  And by the way, everyone: there is still some fall color out there!!

Connecticut family photography, fall family portraits

These two sweet girls were such fun to photograph, and we had a great time in Edgerton Park surrounded by fall color.  It was actually one of the last warm days of fall–as far as I can tell, based on the forecast!–and when the sun peeked through the trees, it felt almost magical.  I love photographing siblings together!  Thank you for a wonderful session, beautiful family!

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!
