Jennifer and I go way back to when we all lived in Florida. When we moved to Connecticut earlier this year, I was so surprised and excited to hear that she moved here as well to be closer to family.

Lily's First Birthday Cake Smash

In honor of Lily's 4th birthday, I wanted to feature her first birthday cake smash today on the blog. I met Lily while living in Maine a few years back. Her parents were stationed and living in the same area as us. Lily's mother reached out to me around the time of her first birthday and asked if I could accommodate a cake smash. I was so excited! There's nothing more fun than seeing a baby dig their hands into a birthday cake for the first time. Lily was no exception!

Rebekah & Emerson's Mommy and Me Session at Buttonwood Farm, Griswold, CT

Since we moved to Connecticut, I kept hearing about the beautiful sunflower fields that were tucked away in the country side just shy of Norwich. I knew I had to go out there and photograph the flowers in all their glory. Rebekah is a sweet friend of mine who I met when asking for a local sitter. She quickly became a friend of mine, and I knew that she and her daughter would be perfect models for my sunflower experiment. We had a blast strolling through the isles of sunflowers, watching the children ride the tractor and smelling the delicious waffle cones for the local ice cream in the air. The weather was a perfect 70 degrees and it seemed as if the sun was smiling down on us.  If you're ever in the area, make sure to stop by Buttonwood Farms in Griswold, CT for a fun family evening.

Brittany's Headshot Session in Downtown Raleigh, NC

A few weeks ago, I took a trip to Raleigh, North Carolina to visit a very close friend of mine. As some of you know, I'm expecting our second baby sometime next month and thought it would be a fun treat to get away for a few days before our littlest baby arrives. We decided to go to Downtown Raleigh one day while I was there to explore, as I've never been before. I brought along my camera and snapped a few headshots for Brittany while I was there. I love how bright, vibrant and alive Raleigh is. I am looking forward to coming back and seeing more soon!

Jonette's Headshot Session in Beacon Hill, Boston

I met Jonette through her boyfriend, Marcus. He and I worked together for a photo/video studio out of Boston. We've since played on a softball league and have grown to be friends! Jonette reached out because she needed some headshots taken for her new venture into interior design. I knew exactly where to go, Beacon Hill! This beautiful neighborhood is rich with beautiful brick homes, cobblestone streets, and a view that will make your draw drop. I am in love with how beautiful everything came together.
