Family portraits: For future generations.

I would like to share with you one reason why I love my job.  Just a few weeks before Christmas,  I received a call from a man named Tom asking me to created a few portraits as a surprise Christmas gift for his wife.  The images were to include their two grown kids with the family dog, Bailey.  We had a great session and I was very excited to hear how the surprise went.  On Christmas morning I kept thinking about how the handful of clients that were surprising their loved ones that morning with portraits were doing! The day after Christmas I found this letter in my email box.  It was from Tom conveying the whole story of how it all went at his house Christmas morning! _____________________________________________________________________ Hi Kim:  Merry Christmas.  I hope all your family arrived safely and that you had a wonderful day.

St. Clement’s Castle is one of my favorite places for weddings!

St. Clement’s Castle right here in Connecticut is one of my favorite places to photograph weddings!  The setting is spectacular and the inside and outside of the building is perfect for all kinds of formal and informal images.  Besides the views and architecture, the staff there is so helpful and accommodating that it is a pleasure to work there. My brides and grooms have all had wonderful things to say about their experience at St. Clement’s as well.  I highly suggest this wedding venue if you can book it.

Natural Light Seminar on UConn Campus

What a great day we had on Sunday. The Natural Light Seminar was a success for all who participated. Everyone learned something about their camera, how to shoot on Manual Mode and take control of the light. Here is a couple of photos that my assistant and friend Roxanne Pandolfi took while we were out on our Photo Safari on the University of Connecticut Campus. Great fun, great people, can’t wait for the next class! Check back soon for the details of the May photo class. Dori and I were discussing some new techniques…. This is the whole class minus Roxanne. What were we photographing up on Horsebarn Hill? Roxanne! I am about to announce the details of the May class as soon as I iron out a few details. It will be an ‘on location’ Travel Photography Experience. It will be a blast! Check back here on the blog SOON! Space is limited. I want to keep the class size small in order to give everyone the personalized instruction and inspiration they deserve.
