We printed this first image as a canvas and have it hanging in our Studio -- she is just stunning against this church doorway! Wow! I applied a special filter to it to bring out all of the architectural detail.

Her proud parents.

We went to Elizabeth park for her photos -- love the colors of the dresses against the park greens!

fun, fun, fun...

She had a wonderful backdrop at the Crowne Plaza

Krista and Pasquale

We recently went to Edgerton Park in New Haven to photograph Krista and Pasquale for their pre-wedding session. It was a beautiful day and not too hot and we had a lot of fun with both of them. We cannot wait to have her run into his arms wearing her wedding dress and have him twirl her!

You can view the rest of the images from their session here on our website.

What an amazing smile! We photographed Krista's sisters' wedding a few years ago and are honored to be capturing Krista's special day!

Kristopher (and Krista and Pasquale)

Krista and Pasquale and Kristopher

Here are some images that we took of this wonderful young man Kristopher. What a delightful boy! He also has a good eye for poses and set up the pose of the three of them on the bench with them sitting and him standing.

We also photographed Kristopher with his Mom and Pasquale. We will be photographing Krista and Pasquale when they get married on the 30th. You can view more images here on our website

This is the image that Christopher set up...

Tom, Caitlin and a Motorcyclist

Just a few images that we created up at NECCC...

We always love photographing Tom!!

I applied a Topaz plugin to this image that I took of Tom Tomlin. It adds a little bit more character to this wonderful character.

I decided to attempt this image because we have never had a motorcycle in our Studio and I thought that it would be a fun shot! I like the hot fudge with a cherry on top version on the right.

Tom took this next image with his 70-200 f2.8. She was standing up and he tilted the camera to make it look like she was lying down. She has beautiful eyes!

Mom and Dad just look peaceful here as they dream together about their future.

I love the Black and white (above) but the color sings to me as well!

He is going to be a big brother very soon!

Wow! Thank your Deanna!

Scotland one month old

Remember Scotland, we photographed her a few weeks ago as a newborn. Well here are photos of her at one month old. You can view more photos here in her one month old gallery on our website.

She is an adorable baby, and definitely has Kathy's eyes! I love seeing both Kathy and Scott interact with her. They purchased the "baby grow with me" so you will definitely be seeing more of her :-)

Knowing Kathy and Scott, photographing their engagement and their wedding, this is definitely a case of "when a baby is born, so is a mother" and "when a baby is born, so is a father". We are glad to know them, it is a privilege.



I just LOVE the pearls with the Black and White cocoon!


She is so tiny right now and we have captured this for Kathy and Scott because we know that time passes so quickly and soon she will be asking for the car keys.

We took a lot of photographs -- cannot wait until this one can sit up!

The cocoons are usually a hit with newborns, makes them feel swaddled and safe and secure, like in the womb. We purchase ours thru if you want to buy one.

Scott saw this flower in the corner and brought it over and place it with her -- I love it!!

Tom and Lisa receive their MNEC honors

We received MNEC honors!

Master Member, New England Camera Club Council = MNEC

MNEC is awarded to those who have performed exceptional service for the Council during a period of not less than five years, and/or have substantially advanced photography in the New England area through lecturing, teaching, judging, and through other administrative activities in photographic organizations for the same period. This honor is limited to a maximum of five each year.

The New England Camera Club Council (NECCC) is a non-profit umbrella group for about 80 camera clubs in the New England states (Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont). The Council was established in 1937 and incorporated in 1963.

The Council sponsors a variety of events and services for the photographers of New England including an annual three-day photography conference each July at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, MA, which is one of the largest in the United States. Over 1200 photographers from the U.S. and other countries attend our conference. Attendees range from beginner to professional photographer.

This year we presented a basic Photoshop preconference workshop at NECCC, plus we gave a program entitled "Fixing Your Friends and Family with Photoshop" three times during the conference.

Tom & Lisa present at NECCC

We just got back from presenting a program entitled "Fixing Your Friends and Family with Photoshop" this weekend at the New England Camera Club Council (NECCC) photography conference . We were asked to present a program at this annual (the 65th annual!) conference this past winter and we had a lot of fun putting it together. I changed the program slightly each of the three times that I gave it and we had a handful of people that came and watched the program TWICE! Hats off to them for being active learners!

We also gave a preconference hands on (or should that be laptops on?) workshop on Basic Photoshop that was completely booked.

The conference attendance was 1127 people this year and it was an awesome conference! Lots of networking, idea exchanges, photo ops, showcase presentations, teaching programs, etc.
