Lemonade Stand Sisters – CT Family Photography

Listening to people’s ideas  is my inner confetti.  This group had a ton! A family session turned into a ‘you know what would be fun…’ Seems Mom runs www.morselsparties.com  The result is fresh squeezed adorable! She even had coordinated straws people!! So happy my bribe bubbles were yellow!!  Oh and the love between the sisters was pretty quenching too.  Check out Jill’s site or Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/Morselspartyplanning  and ring me up too!  You’ll be sure to see more of these doll faces soon.

Party of Five – Connecticut Family Photography

Outside again – finally! With a bit of a chill in the air, the playfulness of this family warmed everything especially the playground.  Twin energetic yet curious boys turning 3 and a big sister with the most gorgeously soft real smile that may just overshadow the mischief in her eyes. A detail Dad with a quiet manner and an on top of it while so patient mom that is a soft place to fall. Their tender connection to each other and quickness to laugh was so inspiring and fun! Been thinking so much lately about focus and how it really is important to capture your family in the realness. Feeling so incredible lucky to do what I do. Feast your eyes on some of the sweetest moments.

PhotoShop – What makes you beautiful?

Image

Glanced at this photo on a photography group this morning, smiled and started to scroll away. Then paused with the thought I barely know PhotoShop and I’ve shot weddings, families, HS seniors, babies, and models. This though was a realization that the thought is PS = perfection and you need to be ‘fixed’ to be beautiful. The reality is that is why you want an experienced photographer. Through posing, direction, lighting, clothing choices, emotion and experience, a good photographer can bring out your beauty/perfection right through the lens. My camera doesn’t make you look good or cry when you see the final image, my experience and passion do. So Photoshop, you ain’t got anything on me.  My final images are always edited by me, typically through a different Adobe program that brings out light, removes blemishes and lets me change a crop.  I’ve done the work to bring out your best. It’s not a program, it’s not my camera, it’s you and me interacting or witnessing your moments.
