One very special HS Senior!

Well, I don’t want to play favorites.. but there are exceptions!  I felt the same way when my older son Dave was a HS Senior and it is no different now with my son Matt who just graduated earlier this week from E.O. Smith High School in Storrs, CT.   This was one of my favorite sessions – we did a Senior Safari that was a blast!  Here are some of my favorites from the day.  I hope you enjoy them. I have posted a few others on my facebook page, so just click the link below to “Like” my page and see more!  Thanks for checking out my blog.. Please leave a comment.  Thanks.

CT High School Seniors 2012 – Capture who you are right now!

Congratulations to another one of my amazing high school seniors of 2012 – Bridget.  She is a lover of animals, soccer and fun!  We had a great senior portrait safari right in her own backyard.  Full of goats, dogs, cats and llamas,  the yard was perfect for showing Bridget as she is right now!Thanks for a great session and good luck as you move forward toward a career in nursing.

Congratulations to all my 2012 CT Seniors!

  I am happy to continue photographing my awesome 2012 high school seniors here in Connecticut.  I love this part of my job because I meet the most amazing young people.  Congratulations to Lyle, from South Windsor High, this is one big accomplishment with many more to come I am sure!  Lyle was a rock star during his session and I want to share some of his images with you. And with his awesome car! Good luck to you at college next year, Lyle!    

Milestones: Families: Photography

As a Connecticut photographer, there is nothing more rewarding for me than documenting families in photographs that celebrate the important  milestones in their lives.  We all have them: new babies are born, first words to first steps;  transitions to school age right through to the High School Senior!  First job, car, and marriage are all huge milestones in our lives and it continues over and over, repeating through the generations.  How important is it for you to document these milestones in your life?  Your family is continually transitioning through and toward another milestone.  Don’t take any of them for granted as each one is a result of much energy, commitment and love.  Celebrate them all, document them through photographs; cherish and pass them down to the next generation to be proud of.  Think about documenting your family this season in professional photographs that you will treasure.  The time is now.  Think about a photograph that documents the stage or milestone your family is at RIGHT NOW.   Then, please call me!

Inspiration.

When I put myself in the company of incredibly creative people, inspiration seems to be contagious. Have you had this experience? It really does matter who you hang around with. I just came back from my professional convention and spent 4 days in the company of many wonderfully talented people. The most important part, whether you are a photographer or other professional, is that it doesn’t matter what business or area of expertise you are in. I believe we are all creative in some way in our work and our lives. We all need inspiration and we can create it with our “team”. It could be co-workers, or others! The connections made by sharing, collaborating and brainstorming can be quite profound. A marvelous photographer, Matthew Jordan Smith, gave a presentation at the convention and said something like, “You never know where inspiration will come from”.  So true! Where will YOU find new inspiration? Stay open and  look out for a new perspective or idea by connecting with the people around you – and let me know what happens by commenting here! My inspiration lead me to ‘play’.  This effect was captured in low directional light and I experimented with camera […]

James – Senior Portrait

I had the pleasure of photographing James on a cold but beautiful day in October.  He loves mountain biking and is a talented cross-country runner and runs for his High School team.  He will probably do well at this in college next year as well.  Here are a couple of my favorites from our studio session!

Evan – A senior who loves the outdoors.

It is nearing the end of ‘Senior Season’ for me, so I am posting another cool senior! Meet Evan, a confident, outdoorsman who loves fly-fishing.  We hiked down to rivers and streams, and even caught a great sunset.

Alex – Senior session

Alex is an extraordinary athlete.  He has excelled at many sports and continues to play baseball and Hockey for his high school.   We had a great time during his senior portrait session and here are a couple of my favorites!

More HS Seniors!

Meet Sabiha, one of my high school seniors who is moving on up and off to college!  We had a super session a couple of weeks ago.  Multi-talented and interesting, Sabiha is a world traveler and spanish speaker.  She has a bright future ahead and I can’t wait to see what she will create for herself in the years to come.    I love getting to know these incredible young people as they launch themselves into their new lives… at college, or by working or traveling.  Here are a few of my favorite images. Here we took advantage of the murals in downtown Willimantic.  Below, the evening light was awesome!  Thanks Sabiha!  It was great fun working with you.    

Senior Sessions at Kim Bova Photography!

Senior portrait sessions are going strong this summer!  This is the best time to schedule your senior session, when you are relaxed, tan and looking your best! Plus there is time to photograph at locations that have meaning for you, not just in the studio. Meet Alek, an awesome senior from the Class of 2011 who came to me for portraits recently.  Yes, I have been a little slow getting these posted on the blog, but he decided he didn’t like his school pictures so he came to Kim Bova Photography just a few days before his graduation!  We had a blast!  Here are a few of my favorites images of the day! Alek is quite talented in sports and academics.  He will be studying architecture in college next year!  Best of luck to you, Alek!
