Bubbles Fireside

Thank you for visiting my website.  I am a Connecticut photographer that specializes in children, family and senior photography.

Living in New England can create obstacles for to any photographer.  The weather can be quite unpredictable and uncooperative.  Here is a little indoor image of bubbles by fireside.


Here’s to saying good-bye to 2017 and welcoming 2018 with great anticipation of endless possibilities.

Instead of looking what one cannot do but instead what can be accomplished.  Being that it was ridiculously cold outside therefore limiting the desire for any outdoor activities sometimes you look to what you do have available …  bubbles and a fireplace.

Here is to seeing ones opportunities rather than acknowledging obstacles to achieve ones dreams.

The Miller Project

I love being contacted by families that want to capture these times not only for themselves but for other family members.  Its starts with an idea and becomes reality.  This was a special session that mom wanted to create a gallery of canvases for her fathers 70th birthday as a surprise.  He cherishes these kids so this was a gift from the heart.

It started with a picture of where the gallery would be hung.

To help envision the possibilities I cleared away all previous items to start with a clean slate.  See below.

Now create a gallery from their favorite images so they can preview the final product before making the investment.


The software I use utilizes your own wall space to help you envision the endless possibilities.  No space is too large or small to create lasting memories around your home.

We live in a digital age and tend not to print or display our images but merely share on social media.  Do yourself a favor and print them out.   There is nothing worse than having lost your phone or have a hard drive crash and not be able to recover them.

All my sessions come with some prints and digitals for archiving.  It’s the best of both worlds.

Even the grandmother got her own canvas to enjoy.

    Everyday life

    Sometimes we get so entwined and focused on milestones we forget the images of everyday life.  Don’t get me wrong I do believe that milestones are important to capture.  I also believe that milestone can be anything you want them to be.  They don’t have to be constrained to just an age.  I have tried to document the important times in my own childrens lives.  It could be when they enter middle school and high school.  What is important to your child and what is important for you to remember?  But we must not forget the everyday life should be documented as well.

    For example below is an image of Peyton.  I have a black and white version but the color one shows how red his cheeks are from sledding with friends outside.  He is intently cooling his hot chocolate before consuming.  It’s a reminder of my kids going out in the cold and sledding for hours.

    I have plenty of the images of the important times in their lives but it’s the everyday images that trigger these wonderful memories.


    The next example is Walker last spring during his lacrosse season.  He was one of the smallest kids on the team as you can see by the other players on the sideline.  He concentrates and awaits being put back in.  He never gives up and always puts 100%.  This image shows his character and how much he is growing.


    So make sure to capture the everyday life of your kids as those are the ones that will spark the wonderful memories.
