And then they were FIVE|CT Children’s Photographer

It’s hard to believe that 5 years ago today, these beautiful girls made me a mother.

Right away, certain personality traits shone through – from DC’s stubbornness to Scooter’s sweetness. Those traits are still there, though I must admit both are perfectly capable of being stubborn and sweet:)

First they turned one.  Sigh. They were so little. And then they hit the “terrible twos” – look how little hair they had! And then they turned three..and well…better late than never. But they did have a party & a letter. And then they turned four.

And now they are FIVE.

Not so much, but everything has changed since they turned four. They’re baby faces have all but faded away into little kid faces. They’ve grown so much, physically and otherwise. But what makes them tick is still there, shining through.

Scooter is still taller, and still sweet. You follow directions easily and are a star student (even winning the Student of the Month award for the first month of Kindergarten!). You are smart and pick up on every little thing. You have a natural intelligence and a desire to learn how things work and to help people. You are a leader and always want to play your way. You are cheerful, playful (and a little loud!) You are determined and have been making huge gains swimming. Your sweetness has been recognized by others as you are always helping your classmates. You are sometimes a little less sure of yourself and can be a bit of a follower, so it can be a little tough sometimes to figure out what you really like and what you think you should like. You are sensitive yet mature. You’ve lost so much of your baby look and seem so grown up now. Happy Birthday, Scooter! Mommy and Daddy are so proud of you and love you so much.

Ah, and then there’s DC. Silly, sweet, unicorn lover. You love to dress up the dog and enjoy spotting random animals with me. You love to dance and pick up on moves easily when you watch others. You are doing so well in Kindergarten and adjusted easily to this year. You are so sweet and want so badly to be a big girl. On the first day of Kindergarten you came out of your room and said: “I thought I was going to be a big Kindergartener! I’m still little! Why am I still little?” Pengy is still your #1. Happy 5th Birthday, DC! I know you’ve been looking forward to it for a while! Mommy and Daddy are so proud of you and love you so much!

Lifestyle Photographer in CT|A little bit of Childhood…unplugged

We’ve been having a great summer and I felt the need to share a bit of our fun…unplugged.

While I love, love, LOVE my big girl camera and fancy lenses (seriously, most love for material possessions ever), sometimes in photography the best camera is the one you have. That being said, these underwater shots were taken with my point & shoot.

CT Children’s Portraits|She is FOUR

The absolute BEST part of my job is watching families and children grow. It is such an honor to be chosen to capture these precious moments and see a baby grow into a toddler, preschooler, and on. It’s amazing how quickly time goes by and our children grow into these amazing little people with their own personalities, opinions and talents.

Do you remember this sweet little girl? She wasn’t so sure of me at first:P

4 years copyBut now she is a perfectly sweet, smart little girl who has gotten quite good at modeling.DFP_7334_webDFP_7360_webDFP_7293_webDFP_7257_webDFP_7251_webDFP_7254_webDFP_7279_web-2DFP_7277_webDFP_7290_webDFP_7356_web
