Looking for an experienced family photographer in Connecticut?

I know… it’s hard to choose a photographer for YOUR family.

It’s hard to make a commitment to a Connecticut family photographer when there are dozens of photographers out there with some amazing images of children and families on their websites. (Mine included, hopefully.)

But, when you’re choosing a lifestyle photographer to work with you to capture the here-and-now amazing-ness that is YOUR family, you have to look beyond the highly-edited portfolio photos and see what you’re really getting for your money.

You want a family photographer who will guide and teach you, work hard to get you what you want, and, if all goes well, make you laugh.

Just say NO to “Shoot and Burn”.

Quality over quantity is the key. Your family deserves a photographer that spends time crafting each image individually. Other family photographers in Connecticut will take a bunch of photographs, send you a link to download a big batch of unedited pictures, and you’re done.

As a professional photographer, I spend time getting to know who you are (and who your kids are!). I want to know what your family’s vibe is, and to explore the special connections that you want to remember this time in the life of your family.

I’ll do the heavy lifting (or, my assistant will…)

One person is NOT enough. For most family photo sessions I come equipped with an assistant (in most cases, my beloved teacher/husband) to haul my stuff around, chase after your kiddos, and wipe their noses. Your Connecticut family photographer should make it easy for you, and I’ll do that.Bring it on! We embrace the chaos.

Think beyond digital. Create a legacy.

Digital negatives are EASY. I get that. However, they are also easily lost, deleted and worst of all, FORGOTTEN. How often do you look through your computer at all the snapshots you’ve taken over the years? Never?

multi-generational family photos

Celebrate Your Family’s Roots with a Multi-Generational Photo Session

Every family has a unique and beautiful story to tell. Often, the stories get lost through the generations. More likely, busy families just don’t have the time to share their origin stories.

Generational photos are a good way to bring the story of your family into focus. Having visual evidence of who “their people” are gives children a sense of identity and belonging.

The Why of Lifestyle Family Photography

Your lifestyle family photo session will produce emotive, connected photos. “Lifestyle” is simple and natural photography for people who want to see the beauty of family connections and the uniqueness of each individual family member.

The secret to getting great beach photos with kids

Hint: It’s not a secret!

I’ve found that the easiest way to get some great beach photos with kids is to have fun at the beach. I mean, really down and dirty, wet and sandy fun.

When kids know that this isn’t all about being told what to do and being told when to smile, they’ll give you the natural, beautiful photos that you’re looking for.
