Farmington Connecticut Maternity Photographer

I just love pregnancy. Each time I see a meet a pregnant client, with that excitement of the baby on its way, I get so mushy inside! And even more so because this session was of my sister-in-law for my soon to be newphew! She was so brave that we got up and held the session at sunrise (after teaching her the beauty of ever-so-so early or late day sun). And it was freezing. And it was very windy. But she is beautiful, and I'll let the images speak for themselves!

And lastly, a little before and after, because its important to me for people to understand the hard work and time that goes into each and every session. The image on the left is straight out of camera and the image on the right is my edit. This is one of the many reasons why custom photography is a completely different experience than a shoot n' burn chain studio at the mall.
Much careful time and attention to detail on every image :)

Wow, what a year it has been. 2010 has been so good to me and my business. I have grown and learned so much but most of all I have worked with some amazing people. My clients are wonderful people who I love creating memories for. From the excitement, anticipation and beauty of pregnancy of a maternity session to the birth of a precious newborn, to toddlers, children and family....this seriously feeds my soul.
