I was so excited when this beautiful client emailed me to let me know she was expecting again and was interested in a maternity session to capture her baby bump as well as a newborn session! She was the perfect client for my Bump to Baby package as I am finding so many expecting parents looking to capture the moments before and after baby arrives!

First, I could not have asked for a more stunning Mom to Be! She is simply gorgeous…one of those pregnant women you see and just wonder how it is possible to look so amazing with a baby in the belly! Second, her two year old son could not be more adorable and since I have already photographed him several times there was no time needed to get him to warm up to my camera! Third, we had the most spectacular days for our two shoots…I’ll get to that next!

I love when a client has a vision and I am happy for them to share it with me! This second time mom-to-be was hoping for some maternity portraits in the snow!  Well, normally in January in Connecticut that should not be a problem….except this year we seemed to have very little snow! So, because we did not want to wait too long in fear or her delivering before the session we decided to go ahead with outdoor portraits without the snow. We had the most beautiful, sunny, winter day! It was not terribly cold and the sunset and light was nothing short of spectacular! And the bonus was within a few days of our session there was snow in the forecast! I told her, “let’s make a last minute call on the session when we KNOW we have snow”! So we did….late one afternoon as the snowflakes were winding down we headed out to one of my favorite hidden gem locations and we captured some magical maternity snow portraits!

Best of 2015

 It’s hard to believe another year has come to an end. The time just flies by too quickly. Before I start another year and think ahead to goals and resolutions I have to take some time to reflect on this past year.

The year 2015 was indeed a great year! It far exceeded my expectations for my business and none of that would be possible without each and every client who trusted and shared your family with me. Whether it was capturing the first days of a babies life or celebrating a graduating high school senior or simply wanting to document a moment in time for your family, I am truly blessed to have been the one chosen to carry out the job of photographing and documenting this time in your life.

 I was fortunate this year to have many assistants who are aspiring photographers. It was a win/win for all of us. I was able to share with them what I have learned so far in my journey and in turn they were able to help take some of the work off my plate and allow me to photograph more families. It’s hard to believe, but I ended the year with 504 sessions. I remember every single one and the time I have spent with each client is special to me.

 At the end of each year, I spend days pouring over session by session and pulling out some of the best moments and photographs from the year. I can honestly say there are many more then I can share!   But for now here they are…hope you enjoy as much as I do.

 Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart, for sharing your time with me and choosing me to have the honor of photographing your family, babies, children and more. And if we did not yet have the chance to meet I would love to see you in 2016!

 All the best,
Karen

The First Birthday is a milestone and in the studio we celebrated this little girl with a FUN photo shoot!  There is nothing better than capturing the excitement that comes along with turning ONE year old!  We had a great time at this little girl’s First Birthday Shoot and Cake Smash!  As the youngest of three children it is always a treat to have time and attention all to yourself!

We started out with some super cute 1st birthday portraits before we headed into the cake smash.  Don’t let the cute shoes and tutu fool you….this little girl was not afraid to make a mess!  By the end of the session the birthday girl, mom, myself and pretty much the whole studio were covered in icing!  And a big Thank You to Cakes by Angela in Ridgefield for the beautiful and yummy 1st Birthday Cake!

And that’s what we call a FUN shoot…!
