~Orrin & Emily - Nathan Lester House, Gales Ferry, CT. - CT Wedding Photographer~

I recently photographed Orrin & Emily at The Nathan Lester House in Gales Ferry, CT. This soon-to-be wedded couple will be getting married on March 31st. I am definitely looking for to photographing the wedding next year.  Just look at that puppy!

Orrin and Emily met their junior year of high school when they were both on the track team.  They got engaged in February when Orrin popped the question as they began sailing away on a cruise to the Bahamas. Isn't that the sweetest?

The wedding will be at the Publik House in Sturbridge MA.

I know it's going to be a gorgeous wedding!

Future wedding details aside, let's get to the present: Orrin & Emily's engagement session! These two are real naturals in front of the camera. Their good looks, fabulous outfit choices, a sublime location and their genuine love for each other made this photo shoot a truly enjoyable experience!

Here's to many, many happy years together!

~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.

~Landon Three Month Session - Nathan Lester House - Ct Children's Photographer~

Remember baby Landon?

It feels like just yesterday I was crouched in front of adorable Landon snapping pictures like a maniac at his newborn session. I was really looking forward to seeing him again to see how he has changed over the past three months. And my, how Landon's grown!

He is already reaching for his toys and almost grabbing them on his own! Amanda said that he loves to hear his own voice. What a cutie patootie!

As you can see from the pictures below, Landon has a standout personality. He clearly knows how to work the camera. Do we have a future Casanova on our hands?

Luckily for me, I get to photograph Landon again in three months. I'm dying to see how much more he has changed between now and then!

~Lily's One Year Session - Nathan Lester House - CT Children's Photographer~

It's hard to believe that this was my fifth time photographing the very photogenic baby Lily. I still remember just how tiny she was when I photographed her during her newborn session.

I seriously cannot put into words just how much I looked forward to photographing this young lady over the last year. Every session, she had changed so much, and the same is true now that Lily is a whole 12-months old! 

Crazy how fast they grow up, huh?

Let's move on to the pictures. Here's Lily in all her 1-year-old glory!

Lily wasn't impressed with the cake.
