I believe in empowering women in a time where it is dictated to us how we are supposed to look and act like!

Many of my clients have been asking about my Water Portraits.
This beautiful style of session is for those who wish for something completely unique!
They are ideal to do in July and August where the weather and the water have warmed up, though I have also in the past been able to do them in September.
I absolutely love photographing this style of session, especially because they are so very different from what I usually do.
The Water Session come in many different shapes but equal to them all is the sense of effortless beauty and pure aesthetics.

Yesterday was such an amazing day. I had the opportunity to spend time with the amazing and dedicated ladies from @thefairfieldwomensexchange who are raising supporting charities for women and children.
A few months back I joined them as a volunteer and I am not regretting that decision. It feels so great dedication some of my free time to help others.
This stunning lady is actress @theredcoquette .

Happy Tuesday everyone!
I want to show you a series I did a while back. I love playing around with light and shadows to get the eye to focus where I want it to. To see the emotions that I want you to see.
@ninettchristensen is stunning in this powerful portrait.
I love how the light hits her face. .

It's Monday. Aren't Mondays supposed to be dreary and hard? Reminding you that the weekend is over and now you have to get back to work?
With the prospect of getting back to work, I just feel super excited.
I have an amazing week planned out full of interesting people and potential new clients.
I absolutely love sitting down with each one and hearing their story. I love hearing them tell me why they have chosen now to be memorialised in portraits. .

There is so much power and love between these two people. In the face of crisis, they prevail and grow stronger. Soon they will tie their bond to each other. Unfortunately, I cannot be there to witness their union but I will be there in heart and mind and cheer them on from afar. .

What a week. And what a day!
I have put so much hard work into my business since September of last year, and it has paid off in ways I could never have imagined. Through networking, I have met the most amazing and strong women. As I have gotten new clients, I have also gotten new incredible friends that help me to power through and inspires me to do better, to push myself and to break the limitations of everyday life.
I feel so grateful to have ended up here in Connecticut. There is so much more space to discover and to create.
Thank you for being a part of my life!

This stunner is the amazing @maimagi posing under a beautiful blooming Magnolia tree .

It's interesting. I have never really liked the colour pink. Ever! As a child, pink was an annoying colour to me. As an adult, wearing pink would mean me looking like Miss Piggy (being a redhead and all). But in the past few years, I have discovered a new fondness for this colour. I still never wear it, but I use it quite a bit in my photography. And honestly, I love it!!! It is such a fun colour and it adds so much dimension to an image.
Take for example this picture of the beautiful model @maimagi. Having her hair in that colour really binds together the image with the blooming magnolia in the front.
What can I say? I love being a photographer. For the sole reason of discovering new things about myself! .
