Fun Summer Portrait Photography

Looking for some fun summer portrait photography in CT?  You have come to the right place.  This time of summer, when the days are long and the kids are out of school, is the perfect time to schedule a portrait session.  Think of fun summer portraits as a family activity because it takes some thought and planning in which you can involve the whole family, and it is fun for the kids in my studio because they will feel like stars!  Plus parents have awesome images of the kids.  Before each session I sit down with you and we make a plan.  I find out what you are looking for in your portraits and I can visualize what would look great for your particular family.  I like to custom design my sessions for each client, however you may also choose from some of the other ‘looks’ I have already created as well.

The Importance of Planning Your Portrait.

Are you thinking of making a photographic portrait of yourself?  Your family?  Maybe you have a High School Senior in your midst?  Planning for this portrait is equally as important as who you choose to photograph it.  I have made a list of things to consider to help you have greatest success. 1) When you call a professional photographer, make sure you have seen and love this persons work. This is crucial.  Take advantage of the fact that every professional photographer these days has a website or blog that shows off their style.  If you like what you see… contact them.  [Ex. When I first started out in photography, I had a client come in for their consultation for a wedding and asked me if I could make a photo in Photoshop of her and her fiance with their heads together in their First Toast Glass just like her mother has.  She never bothered to look at my website and see that I never do things like that!  If your face is on your head, I will never put it on a champagne glass unless it is a naturally occurring reflection.  I love reflections by the way!  I did not […]

The Benefit of Holiday Portraits

The benefit of holiday portraits are that you can capture images of your children at this time of year that you cannot get at any other time.  It was not easy for the parents of these two beautiful girls to convince their youngest, a tomboy of sorts, to get dressed up again this year for their portrait session at Kim Bova Photography.   But because it is that time of year for wearing fancier clothes for the holidays – it was easier to convince them.  We had so much fun in our portrait session, we even played hide and go seek, that they really did not think about what they were wearing!  Besides, the real benefit is that families can have gorgeous images of their children in a formal portrait.  A nice change from the snapshots that are captured by parents all year round!  As precious as those snaps are,  there is nothing that can compare with a professional portrait to record this moment in a childs life.
