They Grow Up So Fast!

Every year I do Madison and Morgaynn's christmas photos and cards. I feel privilged that I have been able to see them grow up over the years. It has been about 9 years of doing their photos. I feel like they are almost family! Morgaynn just had her 10th birthday! Happy birthday Morgaynn and Maddie is now 6! WOW! This is the first year we decided to do studio photos and as you will see kids will be kids! Merry Christmas Girls!

Like I said kids will be kids!

Lily Turns 6 months!

I am having so much fun doing children portraits! I absolutely cannot get enough! You never know what they are going to say or do. Lily came in last week for her 6 month portrait. She was laughing and smiling up a storm. I cannot wait to see what her parents favorites are. - nikki

Nolan Turns 4 Months!

Lats month... the end of September to be more exact my good friend Julie, her husband Colin and the kids all went to Lyman's Orchards for Nolan's 4 month photo. As always I take many photos of both Nolan and Kaytlin. Kaytlin is now about 22 months and she is talking up a storm. All she wanted to do is see the ducks. Nolan on the other had could care less. I look forward to seeing how much they both change over the next couple of months and of course years.

Ritsa & Jay Tied The Knot!

October 15, 2006 I had the pleasure of photographing Ritsa & Jay's wedding. About a month ago we had met for their engagement session. Now it was time for the wedding. The ceremony was at St. Georges in Hartford. It was a Greek ceremony, those are some of the most beautiful ceremonies. I always enjoy photographing a Greek wedding from the ceremony to the reception you never know what may happen! The day went smooth and we lucked out with the weather and the sunset, Thanks guys for letting me part of your special day! -nikki

Congrats Debbie & John!

On October 14th John & Debbie tied the knot! The ceremony was held at the Elizabeth Chapel at the IOL in Hartford. We travel many different places photos and my favorite by far was Trinity College. The architecture was absolutely amazing. I hope that I will get to go back there soon!

Nikki & Danny are Married!

On Friday October the 13th Nikki & Danny got married at the Higganum Congregational Church. Before the ceremony I had a wonderful opportunity to go with Nikki and the girls to the Goodspeed Opera House Pier and take some photos. The lighting was beautiful as you can see. Due to the time of the sunset we did our post ceremony photos inside. The day went well and we had a blast at the reception which was held in the Wagon Room at the Aqua Turf.

Erie & Sean Are Married!

As you all know Erie is now married to Sean. They had their reception at Mahans in Wolcott. What a fairy tale day for me. I have been hearing about this wedding for almost 2 years now and the day finally came. I could not stop crying tears of joy all day. Congrats to the two of you and best of luck!

Erie is getting married!

My assistant Erika is getting married. Erie and I have been working and become friends over the last 5 years. For her engagement pictures we went for a day to Gilette's Castle and the pier at the Goodspeed Opera House. We had so much fun and creativity. Below are a few from her session.

Well Erie now instead of carrying another wedding dress train you will be carrying your own. Her wedding is for Sept 23 and I cannot wait!

Fun With Meg & Ryan!

A coulpe of weeks ago I had a portrait session with a brother and sister, Meg & Ryan. We had so much fun. The best was capturing that natural smile of both of them. As we all know it can be hard at times to do. At the end of the photo shoot Meg decided to wear her Cinderella dress and be a princess. Like all little girls....she wants to be a princess.

Madeline & Sophia

My friend Julie brought in her nieces for some portraits. Madeline who is 4 and Sophia is 1 1/2. What a session! Madeline does not look 4 she looks so much older and sophisticated. Who heard of a sophisticated 4 year old? We all had a great time and got some wonderful shots.
