sweet ambler farm session | fairfield county family photographer
Last year, I was asked to participate in a fundraiser for Oliver's preschool in which I took black & white portraits of each child for their parents to purchase at the annual gala. I also donated a family lifestyle session to the auction as a way to give back to his wonderful school - a mom in his class told me she had won the auction for my session and said they we're so impressed I was able to get a smile out of their daughter in the portrait. That meant a lot to me because getting real emotions out of people is what I always strive for. Fast-forward 6 months to their family session, and I'd say there was no shortage of smiles at all! It's all about letting a family relax and be themselves, and helping them to forget the camera is even there. Have I mentioned I love my job?
