November Portraits in the Golden Light.

I love the light in November.  There is a soft golden light that stretches into the late afternoon at this time of year.  I had the pleasure of photographing Haley in this light recently.  She is a young lady that I have known for years as her family also lives here in Mansfield CT.  We captured some wonderful head shots of Haley in the local fields and other areas around our town.  She currently is a student at the University of Connecticut.  Here are some of our favorites from our session.

Photographing Opera in Hartford, Connecticut.

I had the pleasure to photograph last months production by the Hartford Opera Theater, of the Rape of Lucretia by Britten, at the Charter Oak Cultural Center in Hartford, CT.   This was a fabulous production by a group of young Connecticut based musicians.  Here are a few images from that production. Take note that this weekend on this Sunday, Nov. 18, at 7 pm, they will be performing six ten minute contemporary operas.  Please check out this link for the ticket and performance information.  These are truly talented young artists and directors, don’t miss it!  

Anna & Nayan’s Publick House Wedding

I had the honor of photographing Anna & Nayan’s wedding recently at one of my favorite venues, The Publick House in Sturbridge, MA.   It was a perfect day!  Congratulations to this wonderful couple.  They planned it all themselves with some help from some wonderful wedding vendors!  Take a look… Hair and makeup by Tiffany Leo of Tiffany’s Hair Studio in Sturbridge, MA.   She does great work for brides who like the natural look. The beautiful fall flower bouquets and totally inspired flower purses for the bridesmaids were created by Helena Willis of Perfect Princess Events in Vernon, CT. Anna all ready to go in a dress by Oleg Cassini. ‘First look’ in the tight corners of the publick House.  Nayan is very tall and the ceilings are very low! On the porch of the Publick House. A friend of Anna makes chapstick and they were the vehicle for the place cards on the reception table.  Anyone want to share the creators name?   This was cool. And the Publick Houses’ beautiful garden gazebo for the ceremony. The reception was held in the magnificent Canopy Tent next to the Garden Gazebo and Cathy O’Brien did an amazing job with catering and […]

Cupcakes + Puppies + HS Senior = FUN!

I had the pleasure of spending an hour with a beautiful High School Senior named Hannah.  She is a fun-loving person, an expert baker, a leader at her school and has the cutest little dog named Luna.  What a fun time we had!  Here are a few of our favorite images.  Thank you, Hannah for a really fun session.

Senior Sessions Designed Just for YOU!

Kim Bova Photography went on a photo safari to kick off the Senior 2013 season a few weeks ago with our new Senior Ambassador from EO Smith High School.  His name is Pratik, an amazing talented computer wizard!  We had a great time finding the right backgrounds and “the light”.  We began in the studio and continued out on our safari through Mansfield Center and down to Willimantic with cool walls and natural backgrounds.  Each senior has a unique session designed just for them! Check out some of my favorite images of Pratik. If you are a High School Senior this year, do call Kim to schedule a complimentary meeting to talk about your senior portraits this year! If you are at EO Smith, do seek out Pratik and talk to him about his experience with our studio! Create unique, personal and fun images of who you are right now!  I look forward to meeting you. Feel free to leave a comment here on the blog!

Jazz is alive and well in Connecticut!

I had the honor of photographing Mike Casey, Saxophonist from Storrs, CT,  currently in the Jazz Studies program at the Jackie McLean Institute of Jazz in Hartford at the University of Hartford.  If you frequent Hartford’s Black Eyed Sally’s  you may  have heard this talented musician!   Oh, and if you are around Hartford on August 13th, his band is playing at Bushnell Park, Monday Night Jazz in Hartford at 6 pm.  Make sure you check out this award winning young jazz talent! We had a terrific day to shoot some cool images, in the studio and around town.  Here are some favorites!

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!

CT Engagement – Anna & Nayan

  Thank you, Anna and Nayan for stealing time with me to create some photographs of you on your quick stop through Connecticut!  Travel is a part of this extraordinary couple’s lives who now live now in England.   We had the opportunity a couple of weeks ago to have an engagement session right here in New England! We found some beautiful spots among the dogwoods, barns and country roads…. Congratulations to you both on your wedding in September!  I am looking forward to telling your story in photographs.
