The Story of Egg Coloring|Life Stories Series (CT Lifestyle Photographer)

Welcome to this month’s edition of the “Life Story Series.”

If you’re new or you’ve missed the previous posts, click here to take a look: Life Stories: The Archive.

In case you need a refresher, “Life Story Series” is a 12 month personal project that myself and a group of very talented photographers are participating in. It shows just a little glimpse into our daily lives. It’s a way for us to capture our memories creatively – just us. It’s not about the perfect shot, it’s not about ideal lighting – it’s about capturing those little moments that make our lives ours – the detail, the laughter, the fun, the feeling.

At the end of this post you’ll find links to my photographer friends that’s playing along. It’s a whole big circle of stories in pictures. So grab a cup of coffee (or tea, or wine), click through and enjoy!

We started the day off with an Egg Hunt. And let me tell you, it was sheer chaos. I’m not sure we’ll be doing that again!

The Story of The Winter That Wasn’t|Life Stories Series (CT Lifestyle Photographer)

Has it really been over a year and a half since I did a Life Stories post? Where has time gone? It’s time for a Life Stories revival up in here!

Life has gone by and while I’ve been capturing our moments, I’ve been sharing less. And frankly, with the transition to full day school, we’ve spent less time together and I’ve been less inspired to photograph our moments. And while I’ve enjoying living in the moment and not lugging the big camera everywhere I go, I’ve really missed challenging myself to capture the detail and feeling of what we’re doing. I’ve missed my kids being oblivious to me and my camera (and instead just looking to pose) – and I know years from now, when I’m in my little empty nest, I will look at these simple moments with fondness and be thankful that I’ve captured them.

(And in case you’re wondering, yes, I DO print my pictures. I don’t care how amazing the internet can be with our lives at our fingertips – nothing compares to turning the pages of your family photo album. And I strongly encourage you to print yours, too.)

So. Without further ado,

I’m not going to lie, I was tempted to cheat this month and simply put in photos of my son’s 5th birthday party, that I had already captured – without this project in mind. But, I’d only be cheating myself. I wanted to shoot specifically with this project in mind. So, welcome to the winter that wasn’t – where we played at the part at a mid 50 degree day…in February.

Thank you for reading along for this month’s story. Don’t forget to click through and see my very talented friends who are also participating!

And Just like that, he’s FIVE|CT Children’s Photographer

Let’s face it – there are many faces to FIVE!CT ChildrenDSC_7672_webLittle man, you are busy, crazy, silly, goofy, challenging, sweet, headstrong, independent, loving and everything in between.  You feel things fiercely and are the most perceptive young child I have ever encountered. You are naturally smart and cunning. You are a critical thinker and can be unrealistically hard to please. (Complaints over a home made bacon egg & cheese sandwich when you wanted a homemade Belgian waffle, anyone?)

Life holds great things for you, I know it does.

DSC_7673_webThis is him, in a nutshell.DSC_7698_web-2

And Then they were SIX|CT Children’s Photographer

And just like that, I blinked and here we are. At 6 years old.
DSC_5418_webMy little beauties are growing up so nicely. Sweet, silly and kind girls. I’m not going to lie, the past few months I’ve noticed they’ve been easier on me – growing more independent, more patient. They’re needs have become less demanding and we’re able to talk, have fun, play board games and read (mostly all by themselves!)DSC_5364_webThey also tolerate me posing them much better 😉DSC_5359_webDSC_5327_webDSC_5340_webDSC_5329_webBryan thinks this is her “teacher” picture, lol.DSC_5352_webMini Model.DSC_5389_webThey are also really into posing themselves, too.DSC_5409_webDSC_5404_webDSC_5396_webDSC_5392_webDSC_5414_webDSC_5496_webDSC_5330_webDSC_5346_webDSC_5355_webScooter’s adult teeth are peaking through, she’s already lost 6 teeth.

Sweet girls, stay sweet. Stay loving and considerate. Stay young. Be silly, but know when to turn it off. May you always be there for each other; best friends. You are loved more than you’ll ever know.DSC_5425_web
