When I first met Gily at a bridal show she just had this glow about her. I knew she had a deep love for Justin after our conversation and I couldn’t wait to hear from her to discuss the wedding plans. When we picked to have their engagement session in down town Mystic I knew right were I wanted to start out. The boat docks by Red 66 are always so full of gorgeous light and then making our way over to the iconic bridge that had the words Mystic printed the light got even more gorgeous. Between the three of us I don’t think we stopped laughing at all the entire time. Gily really wanted a light house in the background so we headed over to stonington which is another fun scenic spot with old history in Connecticut. We played around the light house and made even more gorgeous memories for this sweet couple. They were total naturals in front of the camera and I can’t even believe their wedding is in 2 weeks. I am so beyond excited for them and I can not wait to have just as much fun at their wedding as we did doing this session.

Connecticut Beach photos
Rocky Neck State Park has the most gorgeous boardwalk area covered in beautiful canopy trees. This makes for the perfect setting for family fun photo sessions. We loved playing games and having secret tickle sessions all while feeding each other gummy bears. I just adored these sweet families and can’t wait to get back to the beach this summer for some more beach fun.
This Harkness engagement sessions love story started at a friends bbq back in 2013. That would set the seen for Colleen and Matt to start dating and now they are building their life together a day at a time. When I asked about the proposal I kinda melted with pure excitement when I heard the story. Imagine your sitting in a nice restaurant in Dublin Ireland. Yes you read that correct they were on a trip to Dublin Ireland. This is so on my bucket list of places I want to visit in my lifetime. It was the very first night on their trip and Matt was treating Colleen to a super romantic fancy dinner at The Bank Restaurant. While eating dessert, they were talking about their future, and how excited they were for their move and and the future. That’s when Matt grabs the ring from his jacket pocket, gets down on 1 knee and proposes. I am a desert girl and I of course wanted to know what was for desert and hello what a romantic man Matt is. I don’t even think I would be able to eat my desert after that because I would be full of excitement so I hope he at least let Colleen eat a little before dropping to one knee. I can see it all over his face the way he looks at her that she is his everything. I can’t wait for their wedding to finally get here already. June seems so far away yet so close.
Harkness Memorial park is always the perfect backdrop for any type of session weather it be for a romantic couples session or even when you wanna throw in the brides adorable son for a few family photos. I’m a big harry potter fan myself so I couldn’t resist letting little man keep his glasses on and his magic wand in hand. Mike is truly a great man and I am so happy for Gabrielle and little man to have him in their lives. He walked into Gabrielle’s life and loves her for everything she has to offer. Best thing ever is he gets and immediate family. Who couldn’t ask for more love than that? He gets two for the price of one…
Stop back by my blog soon to see their beautiful wedding from this past fall at the Gorgeous Burr Mansion!!
Where do I even start with these two. When I first got the email from Kacey that she wanted to meet with me and talk about her wedding the usual nervousness set in but the excitement quickly took over. Once we finally met at I think the busiest Starbucks ever on a freezing cold day and how much fun I had talking with them about all the details of their wedding to come I couldn't help but fall in love with them. Kacey and Anthony are getting married at Allen Hill Tree Farm and love the fall just like me. And.... She works at the one and only NORA cupcake company which is like only the most fabulous cupcake company in CT period. I totally can't wait to eat some deliciousness at their wedding. I thought it was so cute when we were deciding on the meeting place that Kacey is a Starbucks lover and Anthony is a Dunkin Donuts lover. I personally love both... So of course once they booked me I knew exactly what I was sending the coffee loving couple as a thank you for choosing me to share in the most important day of theirs lives.
Sadly the entire end of the fall season had rain storm after rain storm, but I'm glad Kacey trusted me with the location choice because I knew Harkness Memorial park would still be a beautiful backdrop for the fall look Kacey was hoping for in her engagement photos. She's so talented and crafty I swear. I mean she painted a pumpkin with their wedding date on it and found some beautiful metal letters to use during the session. These two were naturals in front of the camera and I can't even tell you how much fun we had running around the park. I can't wait for the big day to come later this year. Thank you again Kacey and Anthony for choosing me to be your photographer. Until then I leave you with this... Do what you love!
Having an outdoor newborn session is a beautiful alternative to a lifestyle or studio session. It can be customized in so many ways to a beautiful beach setting like this one with baby Zoe, to a favorite park or even a lavender field or orchard. I love this alternative and hope to photograph more adorable newborns outdoors this coming year.
Little Zoe was such a doll and slept most of her session. Big brother Parker is growing up so fast and I know will always love his baby sister. It's amazing looking back when I started photographing this beautiful family they were expecting little Parker and now 2 years later they have both a handsome young man and a beautiful daughter. I can't wait to see this family again soon and snuggle little Zoe.
