Baby Sylvia

Welcome to Baby Sylvia's Session. I had so much fun with this cutie pie and her wonderful mommy Paula. Words can not describe how beautiful this baby is and how beautiful her room adorned in two of my favorite colors Pink and Purple. My jaw dropped when I first came up to her room as the walls were beautifully painted with murals. There are definately more photos to come in Baby Sylvia's Slideshow so stay tuned for that. In the meanwhile take a look at these teasers.

I LOVE this moment caught, those chubby cheeks and tiny lips; so adorable!  :-)

I love this shot.  A picture says more than a thousand words!

And this one....


I love layering my shots it always adds interest to images...right, Carla?

I couldn't resist the bum and feet so sweet.

This was a take-out.  The bonnet kinda slid forward but I thought it was such a cute capture.

Getting hungry.

Thanks for having me.  I enjoyed capturing you Sweet Sylvia.  :-)

Happy 70th Mr. Traussi

I was really honored when Brett contacted me and asked if I could capture his father's 70th birthday celebration. Brett did an AMAZING job of organizing this touching event. He contacted me on Wednesday for Sunday's event. He coordinated this beautiful and successful celebration in a matter of days. He must of obtained these skills from his business experience. If your ever on vacation or just live in the NYC area you should make reservations for one of Mr. Traussi's restaurants; especially if you haven't tried French Cuisine cooked by a top internationally known Chef Daniel Boulud. Check out the website by clicking here.

We started out the day at the town's green for some family portraits. Here are a few to share.

Mrs. Traussi and the Guest Of Honor Mr. Traussi

Mr. & Mrs. Traussi

Such a beautiful family. After many family shots (more images to come in a slide-show stay tuned for that) We headed over to the celebration.

The details were GORGEOUS!

A few more portraits

The cake Mr. Traussi ordered was so beautiful and smelled so good. Everyone joined in to sing Happy Birthday.

I couldn't stop shooting these cuties.

Everyone gathered outside the restaurant. What a great turn out. It didn't take long to realize Mr. Traussi is a special guy.

Thanks everyone!

Happy 70th Mr. Traussi!

Carissa & Steve - Married

I had an awesome opportunity to shoot with Anthony DeCarlo last weekend and am so glad I took it.  Carissa and Steve are such a fun loving, outgoing, up for anything couple.  I am so glad to have met this couple and their wedding party.  My stomach hurt from all the laughing I did with them and their friends and family.  I started the morning by meeting up with Steve, his father and groomsmen in Meriden.  

Here is a shot of Steve as calm as can be.

A shot of Carissa's gorgeous dress.

Now, Steve was so relaxed and running on time.  We headed out of Meriden and to Branford to Make it to the church by 9:00 AM.  That plan came to a screeching halt when we realized their was a road race on the same street where the church was.  Steve remained calm as can be.

Here is Carissa's and Steve's first look at each other.

The church had such beautiful stained glass and architectural details.

One of my most favorite things to do at weddings is to grab shoe and ring shots.  I had a hard time deciding which I liked best ;-)

Beautiful fall colors adorned the Country House in East Haven where the reception/dance were held.

Carissa's dress was absolutely GORGEOUS as well as the flowers.

 A quiet moment together.

Taking time to smell the flowers. 


Such an entertaining and skilled DJ!

First dance.

Last dance, lol.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Please don't be shy.  Say hi :-)
