~The Mermaid Life - CT Professional Photographer~

Doesn't every girl dream of being a mermaid?  From those of us old enough to remember Daryl Hannah in Splash, to those little mermaids singing about whosits and whatsits and thingamabobs.

When I put out a call for someone to be transformed into a mermaid Aimee jumped at the chance.  Playing dress up is always fun no matter your age, and Aimee rocked her mermaid session.

The photos I'm sharing with you today turned out so beautifully. As I was editing all the preview pictures for this blog post, I kept getting more and more excited with how they all turned out.

Before I post the pictures though, I want to first tell you about my model. Suzanne is a fellow photographer who graciously agreed to model for me when I finished sewing this maternity gown.

Suzanne looked stunning in this gown. The purple complimented her gorgeous blonde hair beautifully.

Overall, we had a really wonderful time together and I even had a few extra models who agreed to get into the frame with mom.

Check out these gorgeous photos!

~Ryan & Kathleen Buttonwood Farms, Griswold, CT. - CT Wedding Photographer~

Ryan & Kathleen were another couple that answered my model call.  I love photographing couples, especially when they look this good together!

We did the session at Buttonwood Farms in Griswold Ct, during the height of the Sunflowers for Wishes Event. It was crazy at this location, people everywhere, but I was able to give them some amazing images that made it look like wewere the only people there!

Every summer Buttonwood Farms grows fields of sunflowers, as far as the eye can see. At the end of the event the spend a week selling as many sunflowers as they can and all the proceeds are donated to the Make a Wish Foundation.  As crazy as it gets up there, it is all worth it.

Check out these gorgeous images and if you get the chance check out Buttonwood Farms' Sunflowers for Wishes Event!

~John & Nicole - Nathan Lester House, Gales Ferry, CT. - CT Wedding Photographer~

I put out a model call for couples in love. John and Nicole answered that call, and I am so glad they did!

The Nathan Lester House is one of my favorite places to shoot a session.  There is so much variety between the house, the barn, the garden, and the trails.

I had so much fun shooting this session, we laughed, they kissed, and I shot.  They are such a great couple and are clearly very much in love with each other.

~Chris & Gelana - Arborteum, New London CT. - CT Wedding Photographer~

I put out a model call for couples in love and Chris & Gelana jumped at the chance to get in front of my camera.  We discussed outfits and locations and ultimately decided on the Arboretum in New London.

We took our time walking through the arboretum and picking just the right spots. Sometimes the right spot is in the middle of the trail.

You can see just how much these two love each other.
