Happy mother’s day to all your wonderful moms! Yesterday my mom and grandma came over in the morning. When my mom called her mom, “mom” my four year old daughter looks confused. “She’s not mommy!” she exclaimed. I went over to her and said, “I’m your mommy.” Then I went to my mom and told her that Grandma is my mom. Finally my mom went to Gram and said, “This is my mom.” Four generations of women.

While we get together for holidays and events, it’s not often we have a small gathering of us. I almost said “calm” gathering, but with my three energetic kids. it was anything but calm. My mom had come over with bagels, fruit and muffins. We were getting the kids all something to drink, seeing what they wanted. My grandma was looking around and said she wasn’t used to hectic mornings anymore. She raised four girls and many foster children as well. I’m sure she had her share of hectic mornings, but I have a feeling my children are more boisterous than hers were. At one point she told my mom she was thinking of taking her hearing aid out! I understand grandma. I wish I could turn the volume down too 🙂

Four Generations of Women : Happy Mother’s Day!

Since we were all together and were explaining to Piper about the generations, we thought it would be fun to take a “four generations of women” photo. I’m sure my boys were happy to not be included as all they wanted to do was play video games. Gram got a lesson on Lego Dimensions from them.

We headed down to my studio where I set the tripod up. One of my favorite features on my camera is the interval timer that is built into my camera. I set up the interval and how many photos I want it to take in a row. Then I press start and run into the frame. Easy, right? Well after getting over 100 images, the hard part is seeing if there is ONE usable image. We had a LOT of outtakes that are pretty funny. Luckily we were able to capture one and I am absolutely in love with it!

This winter was a busy time with headshots. Maybe it was being stuck inside on the few snow days we had that got people thinking about updating their Linkedin profile or website. While I don’t market that I photograph professional headshots, it is something that is often requested. Because of that, I figured I’d do a blog post with one of my latest headshot jobs at Newtown Medispa.

Newtown Medispa: Updated headshots

This job was a long time in the making. Deb of Newtown Medispa had first contacted me years ago (about 2014!) about headshots. We had went over a few dates and times, but they were busy getting the new office ready. Like most things with construction, there were delays. So when a month after they were supposed to open and they still had no walls, we postponed the headshots.

Fast forward to 2017 and headshots were on their radar again. Their anniversary party was coming up and it was perfect timing for a fresh updated look! Since they were getting hair and makeup done for the party, we decided I would do the headshots the same day.

Don’t these ladies look fabulous! We had 10 back to back headshots after they were completed with hair & makeup. I’d love to include all of them, but I was missing some model releases (p.s. ladies, if you still want to be included let me know and I’ll send you the form again 😉 ) I just love the gray color for the backdrop. Not only because it is a great neutral, but also because it goes great with their black jackets.

Thank you ladies so much for having me be a part of your day! I can’t wait to see all these new headshots on your website!

Sweet Abigail is now 6 months and cuter than ever! This adorable Ridgefield baby came into the studio for her milestone session. Last time I saw her, she was a tiny newborn. Now she has the greatest smile and is working on sitting!

Ridgefield Baby Milestone Session: Abigail 6 months

Pinks & Yellows

I love the fun spring colors used for Abigail’s milestone session. I had the perfect little sitter outfit that matched perfectly. And I can’t even tell you how excited I was to use the fun yellow, pink, and blue backdrop for the first time. First of all, it screams spring. Second, it is just so colorful and happy! Definitely goes with Abigail’s personality.

Those eyes and that smile. I can’t get over how much Abigail has grown and loved seeing her little personality. She made it through a couple outfit changes and was still smiling. 6 months is one of my favorite ages to photograph because they still love strangers and are so interested in their surroundings.

Sweet Eloise was 8 days new when she came from her home in Norwalk CT to my newborn studio. Back in December of 2014, I had photographed their oldest, Olivia. At that time I didn’t have my studio yet and traveled to my clients. It is an incredible honor when my clients choose to have me photograph their newborn. And even more so when I had previously traveled to them and now have a studio where my newborn clients come to me.

Sisters <3

I love putting these collages together when I get to photograph siblings! I had to dig a little in my archives as 2014 isn’t as accessible, but I found one on my FB business page. So excuse the quality as facebook degrades the quality of images.

Pink, Purple, and Ivory

We had a beautiful girly set up with shades of pink, purple, and ivory. I personally thought purple was the perfect color for Eloise!

Little Details

I have been enjoying breaking out my macro lens during newborn sessions. Those little close up details like her tiny hands peeking out from under the wrap make me so happy. Or a close up of her face that shows those adorable chubby cheeks.

CT Newborn Studio

Newborn sessions take place at Heather’s Newtown CT newborn studio. It is recommended to book during pregnancy as Heather takes a limited number of newborns a month. Your due date will be penciled in and the exact session date scheduled after your little one arrives. Newborns are typically photographed between 6 – 16 days after birth.

Thank you for checking out Eloise’s newborn session! Leave her some love in the comment field!
