August Portrait Party | New Canaan Photographer

A preview of a few favorite images of these three handsome brothers.  The M family happens to be some good friends of my family.  It was a real treat to photograph them all together.  
 
Oh, and their mommy was one of the winners of our Grand Opening contest last month! So she redeemed her two free sessions!

August Portrait Party

It only took a minute with handsome Mr. A to realize I captured some sweet faces.  You are such a good looking little guy!  Thanks for being so kind to my camera!

Little Boy B -- sneak peak

This is the oldest of three brothers and he was a pro.  He wanted to look so grown up -- very GQ.  Enjoy!

Sneak Peak for the K Family

This little girl was the cutest ever.  She loved our props and playing with all the toys (especially the tea set) but she sure resisted smiling.  Fortunately she is gorgeous even with her serious expression!

Sneak Peak for the S Family!!!


This little girl was all smiles and patty cakes.  She also showcases just one of the many outdoor type of shots we can do at our portrait parties.  Not everything has to have that studio feel.

August Portrait Party | New Canaan Photographer

Here is a sneak peek for the D family of two fun brothers. Big brother D was a little hesitant to get his pictures at first, but I made him my personal assistant and gave him a camera of his own to click away with while I took his little brother's portraits. That perked him up and we got some great images of them both!

Sometimes kids are shy at first to sit in front of the camera.   Jamie and I are sensitive to this. We are prepared with lots of tricks up our sleeves to help them get comfortable so we can get plenty of good, happy images of your children. We have lots of practice since we are moms ourselves!

Print Ideas | New Canaan Photographers

Looking for ways to print your Portrait Party images?  Here's a new one!  Remember these designs of Miss E and baby S?  These were ordered in 20x20 inch floatwraps to hang in their bedrooms.  Aren't they so pretty?

Floatwraps can be ordered in a variety of sizes through theportraitparties.com by emailing Lillian (email address to the right).  They come ready to hang so there are no worries about finding and paying for a frame.  Very convenient and super elegant!

Email Lillian for details on sizing and price.

Family Portraits | New Canaan Family Photography

Did you know you can book either Jamie or Lillian for personalized family portrait sessions?  It's true!  Most of the images you see on this website are from our Portrait Parties, which is the majority of our business.  However, we do offer a very limited number of on location family sessions.  Jamie and Lillian are busy moms of busy kids and wives to busy husbands, so that is our main focus.  But we love photography and love to share our visions with you! 

If you are interested in booking either Lillian or Jamie for a personalized location session, email them for available dates and pricing.  But book soon, because availability is limited!


. ~ . ~ . ~ . ~ . ~ . ~ . ~ . ~ .


These are just a few images from a session with the D family at the beautiful New Canaan Historical Society grounds.  Lots of space for little Miss K and Miss H to run around in between pictures.  They are just adorable and you can see other images from our portrait parties of them here and here.  The D family are dear friends of mine.  You really won't meet more kind people on this planet than Mr. and Mrs. D.  

Thank you so much for letting me be a part of capturing your wonderful fam.

Here are just a few images of the Q family from this weekend when the entire family was together.  Their son, N, is leaving this week for two years to be a missionary in a Spanish-speaking country, so this was a special time for them to be together.  I felt honored to be a part of their family's weekend.  Thank you Q family!  You really are all very beautiful people!

I'm pretty sure they all thought I was a little crazy when I busted out these props, but I must say I love the way this image turned out!  I first saw this idea on my very creative friend, Liz's blog and then again on another blog, and really wanted to give it a try.  I think it's hilarious!  (And I really, really hope the Q family thinks so, too.)

Print Ideas | New Canaan Children's Photographers

I just ordered these prints for my daughter's room and am happy with the way they turned out in this frame.  I thought I'd share in case you need some inspiration for what to do with your Portrait Parties images.  Even though you have seen lots of images of Miss E recently, as I've said before I have nooo bias whatsoever toward my beautiful, precious, gorgeous, perfect, adorable, sweet, lovely little 18 month old.  No bias at all....




The frame is Ribba from Ikea for $9.99.   The 5x7 prints I ordered through our professional lab, which we'll have information about on our website soon!  In the meantime, contact Lillian (email address on the sidebar) if you are interested in ordering prints through us.
