Connecticut family photography, newborn photography in New Haven County, baby photos

This little lady was only 12 days old for these photos but SO alert and responsive to her parents!  At one point her dad was making faces at her and she was doing them right back, until one of his faces made her smile (it absolutely seemed like a real smile to me, purely interactive, even though I know it’s too soon for babies to smile!).  She has beautiful little lips and expressive eyes and two totally in love, adoring parents.  The session was a joy.  Thanks for inviting me into your home to capture these fleeting moments, guys!

Connecticut children’s portraits, family photography in New Haven

Just because it’s winter, doesn’t mean it isn’t a great time for portraits!  Since it was a little overcast, Gerry & his mom met me at the Yale Art Gallery, which has such great little photo spots scattered throughout.  The nice thing about a session at a museum is that the child can get absorbed into the fun of the place and forget you’re taking photos now and then.  Thank you for a great session as always, guys! 🙂

Connecticut photography, New Haven events, New Haven County photos

I photographed the Run for Refugees for IRIS yesterday, and it was clear that the recent events in our country have really galvanized the people in this wonderful small city. I feel so lucky to live in a place where differences are celebrated, refugees are welcomed, and people are ready to fight for what they believe.  There were many great moments that will stick with me: the first female finisher running the last stretch while making a heart with her hands; men and women in their 80s participating, and finishing!; huge numbers of onlookers cheering each and every runner and walker to the finish line; a sign that said “New Haven: Faithful to the Name”; and a huge turnout, bigger than any previous year by over a thousand.  IRIS does important work, particularly at this time in our country’s history, and I encourage everyone to check them out, as there are many ways to help out.

Connecticut engagement photography, Connecticut couples, wedding photography in New Haven County

Oh, I love this couple!  I am beyond excited to be photographing their wedding in June.  They both radiate kindness and love, and it’s not surprising that their career choices reflect that (teacher and firefighter).  So of course we had to get some photos at Mike’s firehouse before heading to a tree farm :).  Did I mention they have a PUPPY?  Just look at her expressive eyes, and she’s as soft as she looks.  I can’t wait to see this beautiful couple decked out and surrounded by family and friends on (almost) the first day of summer.  Thanks for a great session, guys!

Connecticut family photography, New Haven County holiday portraits

This sweet family braved the cold this weekend to take some family portraits at Edgerton Park, a place you have seen often on this blog if you’ve been following me for a while :).  Edgerton is beautiful at any time of year, and a particularly good place for photos in the winter, when their greenhouse offers a respite from the cold mid-session :).  These three cuties were playful with me, and big brothers were so sweet with their sister (older bro insisted on holding her :)).  Enjoy your sneak peek, guys!
