Fall Portrait Sessions – Booking Now.

Fall Portrait Sessions are a favorite of mine.  Autumn seems to be arriving early this year so I would like to encourage you to get a jump on scheduling a portrait session time for yourself, significant other, family, pets, or all of the above!  The days are warm and the evenings cool – perfect weather for portraits here in Connecticut! There are limited weekend days so hurry and call me if that is your only time to schedule your Fall Portrait Sessions, or I am available on weekday afternoons after school or work as well. Things to think about: 1-Portraits make create holiday gifts for family.  Why not get a jump of the holiday shopping?  Portrait gifts make it easy to create a personal gift that can be shared with many family members.  Family portraits are priceless, especially to parents and grandparents.  Whether they are far away or living close by, grandparents love having your beautiful faces and smiles on their wall or mantle all year round.   2- Children grow up fast. (Although I realize, sometimes it feels really slow) Time flies and before you know it you may realize that you do not have a professional quality family portrait that is up to date.  Right NOW is a great time to […]

Dog Portraiture at Kim Bova Photography!

My Dog Day mini-session day was a blast!  It was fun and challenging.  My goal for dog photography is not that much different then when I am photographing humans.   I want to capture each dog’s personality in a photograph that their ‘people’ will love, even after their ‘best friend’ is gone. Dog Portraiture is a patience building exercise.  Never move too fast, don’t overwhelm the dog with too much action, treats or noises.  I learned that I can make some really high pitch sounds that perhaps only dogs hear.  For some dogs, boredom can set in fast, so I had to grab attention with surprising sounds to keep them engaged.  With patience, I was able to get some nice portraits of these beloved pets for their families to enjoy. Thank you to all the folks who brought their best dog friends to the studio to be photographed for my special DOG DAY and to support the local animal shelter.  And shout out to Stephanie, my assistant, who helped me lure, engage and get some fun photos of these lovely pets.  Here are a few of my favorite images from the day. Meet Jake.  This dog has tons of energy, […]
