An update and a cute 10 year old

As 2 busy mothers, Lillian and I knew that starting a business like this one would have so many possibilities to accomodate our lives. Right now Lillian is taking a bit of a break while she is growing her new baby. And I have embraced this time too as a sort of break. I don't have any pregnancy challenges, just the regular run of the mill challenges that come with raising 5 kids.

And I have really missed it!  This past weekend I got back on the saddle (so to speak) and had a portrait session with this stunning 10 year old.  It was so much fun.

Enjoy some of the black and white ones from this session!

Prettiest Baby | Trumbull Baby Photographer

Although I am taking a break from The Portrait Parties until my baby comes this summer, I couldn't resist the opportunity to photograph 3 month old Miss K.  She is such a pretty baby with gorgeous porcelain skin.  Her mommy & I pulled out all the stops to get a smile from this little cute, but she was very serious about her first photo shoot.  I did manage to get one smile and a yawn though!

Thanks to the G family for letting me capture this time in your daughter's life.  It was such a privilege and I'm so happy about new addition to the family!

On a side note, all these images were done in my home.  I have gorgeous lighting in my 'studio' (aka dining room) that makes for amazing portraits.  And although I am taking a break, if you are willing to work with me taking a little longer to process a session than usual, and are willing to come to my home, I can try my best to fit in a session for your baby or newborn.  I just can't resist the babies, they are my favorite!  So be in touch if you are interested in a newborn/ baby session and we'll talk!

Previous Session | Trumbull CT Family Photographer

These photos are from a session I did last fall.  Somehow I missed posting them, and I think they deserve a post for sure. 

The mom originally booked a portrait party session, so I captured some photos of her and her handsome boys in a more studio-type setting (like the last photo).  As I went through the images after the session, I felt I did not capture exactly the right feel of this family.  The mom is a friend of mine and I know personally how much she dearly loves her boys.  I really wanted to capture that. 

So I invited her back for a quick outdoor session at my home.  It was late in the afternoon so the light was nice, but it was almost gone so we had to be quick.  The oldest son was NOT in the mood to hold still for pictures.  He was very playful and literally running away from the camera most of the time.  So we let him play.  And I absolutely love the black and white shot of him and his mom giggling and playing chase on the lawn.  It's my favorite of the session because it captured a moment between mom and son.

A lot of people worry about having a family session with small kids because they think their children will not cooperate and hold still and say cheese nicely posed and perfect looking.  Those perfectly posed moments may be nice sometimes, but don't always make the most meaningful portraits.  I LOVE to capture your family and children as they are - whether timid or crazy!!  That's what I think you'll want to remember about your young family anyway.

Taking a Break

Many of you know that I am expecting a little boy this summer.  We are so excited about adding baby no. three to the Hoyt family. 

I am in the last stretch and have decided to officially take a break from scheduling any sessions until a few months after this baby comes.  I'll probably continue posting photos from my personal work every now and then, so keep stopping by.

If you are interested in a session, please be in touch with Jamie.

(can you tell how thrilled my six-year-old is to be in this photo?? Ha!)

Sweet baby boy W

I thought my baby (who is 16 months almost) was still a baby until this morning.

now THIS is a baby- a sweet, calm, 2nd son. I just don't think it gets sweeter than those first few days.
