Hello and welcome!

Thanks for stoping by! That's me, and my super cute and spunky 1 year old, Nora. When we're not laying on the floor taking selfies, we also like to bake, take lots of pretty photos, and practice yoga. Aside from posting way too many pictures of Nora on instagram, I also take pretty wedding picures and make pretty baby items. So browse around, and keep up with all the latest.

A couple of weeks ago, my niece, Julia, turned 1!! I can’t believe how quick their first year flies by. I feel like it was just a few weeks ago that I was visiting them at the hospital on the day she was born, and visiting them at home in her first few weeks of life.

I was looking forward to her birthday party like a giddy little kid on Christmas eve! And how can you not with a Pizza Truck with all you can eat gelato!? As always with the Cucinelli’s and parties (especially ones at the beach house), there was an abundance of great food, and even better desserts! It was a huge, beautifully decorated party, and I think everyone had a really great time! I know I did. Check out this little cuttie-pie and all of the fun she had at her butterfly-themed first birthday party. She even had her own cake to smash and eat, which she did a wonderful job on!

At the end of the summer, my dad’s side of the family made a trip out from Pennsylvania for a little family get together/reunion. As always, there was too much delicious food and wonderful desserts (including a to die for red velvet cake that my Aunt Linda made!!!). We don’t get to see them very often, so it was so so nice to get together for the weekend. As luck would have it, the weather was perfect (both for pictures and swimming!), and we were able to sit for a really perfect family portrait! I know most people (photographers) cringe when they hear white shirts and blue jeans, but with this many people, I just thought it would look really clean and classic, and you know what, I love it. I love the 1992 feel the group photo has. And I love that everyone was able to make the look their own by throwing on some cute accessories.

A couple of weeks ago, I spent a Monday afternoon with possibly the *cutest* little baby girl in the whoooole wide world. She has these amazingly beautiful blue eyes, and the sweetest smile that will surely melt your heart. And her parents? They were filled to the brim with warmth, generosity, and love. I had such a blast hanging out with them for the evening and capturing pictures of their little family. At 6 months, these moments are fleeting, and I love being able to capture such special memories for my families!

As soon as I got to their house, I was greeted by little Indy and her dad and they offered me mint water, and cookies (Back to Nature Fudge Mint… one of my *favorites*!)… and I knew it was going to be a great session! We started in their beautiful backyard, which was full in bloom with some gorgeous flowers, and eventually made our way down to the water. It was a warm beautiful day, with some pretty awesome light.

Sam, Jared and Indy, thanks for letting me spend the evening with you guys, I had so much fun! I hope you enjoy the pics!!

Part way through our shoot, Indy fell asleep, so we continued as she napped peacefully in mom and dad’s arms…

Eventually, she woke back up and was ready for more pics!

A couple of weekends ago I spent the afternoon with the cutest family in the whole world! I’ve known Ary for about 4 years (we work together at Yale), and in that time I have seen him marry, and now start a family. I was incredibly honored to photograph them and their little man at Elizabeth Park in Hartford, as this was where they were married 3 years ago! I thought it beautiful that these pictures, the documentation of their growing life, were taken in the place that they *started* their life together.

The park is beautiful!! Tulips were blooming everywhere and we made our way through the park grounds. In one section there is a huge rose garden, though the roses haven’t bloomed yet. I’m dying to go back and photograph there when they do, so if anyone is thinking of a session this summer, now is the time to lock in a date for the amazing roses at Elizabeth Park!

Ary and Bina, thanks for a wonderful afternoon! I hope you love the photos as much as I do!!

They brought their dog, Odie, along so we had to catch a few with him! He is the cutest in the world. I’m not a big dog person (was petrified when I was little) but I LOVE boxers. I think they are adorable when they are puppies, and just beautiful when they are full grown. Just look at that face!
