Wooster Park, New Haven, Connecticut


I was blessed to be Sara and Gerry's wedding photographer in 2020.  They were so great to work with and I was able to capture beautiful photos of their wedding day at Amarantee's Sea Cliff.  Well a lot has happened since then.  Sara and Gerry bought a house and they have a little girl on the way.  I was delighted when Sara reached out to me this winter asking if I would do a maternity photo session with her.  I said yes and we started working together to plan out here session.  I really like to choose special spots for each client and I brought up the idea of a spring cherry blossom session.  Sara loved the idea and we picked a date when the cherry blossoms would be in full bloom. We chose Wooster Square in New Haven as it's the most well know place in Connecticut to capture this beautiful event.  The weather and cherry blossoms cooperated as we were only 3 days past "peak bloom".  The timing was perfect because there were more petals on the ground which added to the magic of the event.   Because of the nature of them being in the shade beneath the canopy of the trees, I decided to enhance the lighting with some off camera fill light to balance their skin with the exterior light of the trees and background.  It made for a more natural and balanced look. My skill in various lighting and photo techniques allows me to bring out the best in your photos from every situation.

We had a wonderful relaxed time in the park enjoying the stillness and warmth of spring and all the colors and life blossoming all around us.  Great job Sara and Gerry on your session and congratulations on your new baby girl soon to be.

Having your photos taken doesn't have to stop after your wedding.  It is just the beginning of your lives together and the life that you both will bring into the world.  Feel free to contact me for maternity session, family photo sessions and more.  As always great rates, beautiful images and a good time are always yours.
