Time for a challenge.  Whenever we get too comfortable in life we are no longer growing – and I feel the need to push my photography skills forward.  The guidelines of this self imposed journey are:  one photo a week; no explanations or stories needed; black and white; shot only with my Nikon D800 and 28mm lens. The end. Or, the beginning …

“I prefer winter and fall, when you can feel the bone structure in the landscape – the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.”   [Andrew Wyeth]

Had a wonderful time photographing these beautiful sisters recently. They were fun and playful and our hour together flew by.  Mom realized that her chances of getting them together were getting slimmer as one is in college and another a senior in high school. Along with doing a senior photo and some shots of the girls together and individually we also did a few family photos that included mom – which she said hasn’t happened in many years.  It’s so important to exist in photos for your friends and family and I’m so glad I got to capture a few moments for them.

Birth Photographer | Makeshift Doula

In Family Portrait, Newborn, Photography, story, Uncategorized on September 7, 2016 at 5:14 PM

A few weeks back I had the honor of being asked to photograph a birth –  AND  – as my other career hat is as a massage therapist – be the stand in doula. What an experience!  I met the couple at the hospital and photographed the experience from hours after the water broke ’til 30 hours later when a c-section had to be performed – alternating between taking a few pictures and then doing a back rub with some essential oil infused lotions I’d brought along.  This photo-journalistic / documentary style is a departure from the usual head shots and portraits I do and I really enjoyed witnessing and capturing the untouched, non-staged, real life moments.

The hospital staff were kind and accommodating and even allowed me in the operating room to capture a few images of babies first breath [as mom had hoped for] when we found out the c-section was necessary.

I’ve got a few goofy photos of me and dad in scrubs, along with some beautiful shots of the raw reality of bringing life into this world. [What our bodies can do is amazing!!]

But for today’s sharing just a few cute shots of this beautiful blessing.

Congratulations to the new mom and dad and thank you for trusting me to be part of the experience with you!

Twin Boys

That moment when you are photographing twin boys and you ask them to pretend to like each other.  Young boxer in training. ;) Love how this joking moment shows their affection for one another.

Corn … in CT … at the golden hour. I think this would be a beautiful spot for a portrait.
