On the 15th of December, the Holiday Joy was in the air. We set out to capture some fun and exciting moments for the DRS Annual Holiday Party. We set the tone of the night at the Ethan Allen Hotel with a fun Cocktail Hour, a delicious Dinner and some show stopping raffles! The crew spent the rest of the evening dancing with sugarplums and dining on decadent desserts to celebrate a long year of hard work and accomplishments. It was a true pleasure to have the opportunity to photograph this amazing night!
It was a gorgeous winter day on the 15th of December. With the smell of crisp winter air and pine we set out to capture the Everlith's awesome family. As they picked out their beautiful tree for the holidays, we wrestled up some fun for pictures and exploring at the beautiful Jones Tree Farm. “Family: A social unit where the father is concerned with parking space, the children with outer space, and the mother with closet space.” –Evan Esar Enjoy these moments in time. Happy Holidays!
On the 8th of December I had the privilege of celebrating Rosemary Palmers 65th Birthday. It was full of fun and excitement.

Winter has arrived! Although the rain did not seem to think so.. On Sunday December 2nd the harsh rain turned into a mist and the haze filled the sky, but this did not stop the Witkins family. We set out for a fun family session at Maple Row Farm, and boy did we have fun! A Surprise Proposal!!! Zev popped the question to Hailie!! She said yes!! In the presence of her family the love and romance filled the air. As they set forth to cut down their first tree together as a newly engaged couple the spark between them lit light a catalyst and warmed the cool winter breeze. I could not be more happy for these two and the entire Witkins family. It was an honor to capture this once in a lifetime moment for you. Congratulations, and Happy Holidays!
On the beautiful Fall day of November 25th, 2018, We all headed down to Twin Brooks, and we were lucky enough to do a photo shoot for these beautiful families. Two sisters that have both expanded their families, and expanded the amount of Love! The relationships between the two of them, their children, their husbands are heartwarming to see. We have known them for years, and we know personally that the bonds shown in these photos are pure and real... About as real as it gets! The love of a family is Life’s greatest blessing.
On the Sunny Fall day of November 25th, 2018, We had the opportunity to take some photos of one our favorite little cuties and his Momma at Twin Brooks Park in Trumbull! I have known Meghan for the past 7 years, watching her grow and progress as a person has been amazing to watch, and seeing her grow as a Mother to the most beautiful baby boy, is breathtaking! Jaxon is the sweetest little soul and had nothing but pure smiles for the camera! “Your greatest contribution to the world may not be something you do, but someone you raise.”
On the charmingly bright day of November 25th, 2018, we had the pleasure of doing a Family Portrait session for the Miecznikowski Family! This Lovely family of four was fun, playful, and so easy to shoot! The love they have for each other and for their children, was shining brighter than the sun! “There is only one thing more precious than our time, and that’s who we spend it on!”
It's an unexplained feeling that we all hope to find, That wonderful feeling that seems to boggle the mind.
It makes your eyes hazy, It can make you carefree and lazy.
It can make you or break you, It can make you happy or blue.
Giddy, like a child at play, Looking for that feeling every single day.
Love is an unexplained feeling, Something that leaves ones heart reeling.
A special kiss, hug or smile, A kind word that goes the extra mile.
A beautiful voice on the end of the line, It's wonderful to know love so divine.
Soaring up and down on the wings of a dove, That's the unexplained feeling of love.
It was the 24th day of November, and Joe and Charleen set forth to join hands and hearts for a lifetime of love and happiness. Together with their family and friends at St. Teresas Church (The Prince of Peace) Woodbury their beautiful ceremony warmed our chilled winter hearts. Getting the party started at one of the most beautiful venue's in CT the Aria set the tone for an amazing night that leave memories for many years to come. Best wishes on this wonderful journey, as you build your new lives together. May the years ahead be filled with lasting joy and the love you share today grow stronger as you grow old together.

On the 17th of November Marcia and Brian joined together to celebrate their union in the presence of family and friends. As the crisp cold winter air blew, and the subtle dusting of snow remained on the ground winter was amongst us. Starting out at their beautiful new home with butterflies in her tummy and excitement in the air. The ceremony took place at the gorgeous St. Mary's Church of Stamford. Followed by an amazing portrait session at Cove Island It was a little cold but well worth it! As they tied the knot we set sail to the Portuguese American Cultural Center in Tarrytown, NY where the feast began. With an amazing buffet for cocktail hour unlike I have ever seen. We made our way upstairs into a magical wonderland fit for a King and Queen. The night was filled with dancing, more feasting, decadent desserts, and the love and laughter of all of their family and friends. Thank You for letting us share this beautiful day with you both. Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness.
