5 Reasons Why You Should NOT Hire Me

I get a lot of inquiries from potential Clients who want family portraits, especially during the fall. And while some photographers will try to accommodate all inquiries so they get the job, I take a slightly different approach.

How to Convince Dad To Do a Family Photo Session

There is a stereotype out there of Dads hating photo sessions. For some reason they got a reputation of being grumpy and displeased about working with a professional photographer, and it stuck. In my personal experience, there’s no real trend in guys being more difficult or unwilling…

Beautiful Fall Family Session in Binney Park - Old Greenwich, CT

Binney Park in Old Greenwich Connecticut seems to be of the most popular places for photographers to take their clients (and for a good reason, too). On the morning of our shoot, there were no less than 2 other photographers walking families around for outdoor portraits. In fact, one of my favorite car games while driving by Binney Park is to count how many photographers I can spot through my car window. Nevertheless, the family I was photographing was of course the best dressed. The complimentary wardrobe consultation before the session is always so helpful when trying to coordinate the outfits of the entire family! Mom and I went through everyone's clothing options, made sure warmth was accounted for, and discussed a few additional items to get that would round out the look. I love the chunky texture of Teddy's sweater, how Tommy and his dad are wearing matching gray tops, and how beautiful mom looks in her navy dress and brown boots. This was definitely one of the most lovely families I've had the pleasure of working with.
