The Second Advance {Rockstars} Danbury, CT

Recently I got to play paparazzi for a couple of rockstars I'm lucky enough to also call friends. They're known as The Second Advance to their groupies, but I just call them Mark (guitar), Brett (vocals/guitar), Dan (bass) and Chad (drums)...and these guys are seriously talented, and I'm not just saying that because they paid me! No, really, I've attended a number of their shows, which are always a blast, and I have no doubt, if you don't know them yet, you will some time in the seriously near future! They've been playing shows all around CT and surrounding states, so if you're in the area, check out one of their shows, or you can listen to and download their music and learn more about the guys here. We started our adventure in 90% humidity and 90+ degree heat, and yes, it was after 5pm, but the unseasonable heat did not stop us, and we set out to see what we could find in historic, downtown Danbury. I loved the variety of historic architecture, gritty walls, chipping paint, and broken windows we found. It was not the usual ambiance I go for when doing family or engagement shoots, and I was DIGGING it!! As the sun got lower we made a mad dash to Candlewood lake, to grab a few shots of the guys in the water as the sun went down. Awesome! These dudes rocked so much, they even treated me to a BBQ and some brewskis after the shoot... what's not to love? So, without further adieu, I give you, The Second Advance!

Anne & Mike {Engaged} Meriden, CT

I had one of my most inspiring, fun and creative engagement shoots not too long ago! I teamed up with Sara of Growing Tree Photography to assist her in capturing the super sweet couple you see below... Anne & Mike were like a breath of fresh air, with their charming little farmhouse,and seemingly simplistic yet incredibly satisfying life. We shot the whole afternoon in their gorgeous backyard, and got to play with some cool old farm equipment, an absolutely dreamy old truck, and the most adorable dog I've ever seen, named BEEFER! These two have a genuine devotion and love for each other, which I'm sure you'll agree... can be seen by anyone who views these images. I hope you love an enjoy them as much as I do.

Baby Peyton {3 months old} Danbury, CT

I got to hang out with one of my favorite client families the other day! This family has given me the pleasure of photographing their wedding day, their son's first birthday, and now, their beautiful baby girl at a precious three months old! I spent a gorgeous afternoon at Tarrywile Park in Danbury (one of my favorite and most used locations!)photographing little Peyton and got a bunch of shots of her big brother, JD, as well! The light couldn't have been more amazing, and JD and Peyton were patient little models... for the most part!

The Elias Family {Mother's Day Shoot} Danbury, CT

A few months ago, a repeat client, and friend of mine, Courtney, asked if we could plan a family shoot as a surprise for her mother for Mother's Day. I thought that was an incredibly sweet gesture, and wonderful idea, so we went ahead and scheduled a time to meet at Tarrywile Park & Mansion in Danbury. We were so lucky to have beautiful weather, and lots of gorgeous flowers blooming while we were there! I always love to shoot at Tarrywile, simply because of the variety of locations you can walk to in such a short distance, all as beautiful as the next. I had a great time with Courtney and her family; they were fun, and very easy to work with, and had great ideas too... yep, the tree shot was ALL them. Nice work guys!
