CT Family Photography | Rebecca Lynne Photography River Photography Sessions

Climbing rocks and making smore's, the perfect warm Fall Family Photography Session

I have photographed this family a few times over the years, from hermit crab hunting at the beach to photography sessions filled with hugs from Great Grandparents. When we were planning their Fall Family Session a thought popped into my head...SMORES! Let's explore the wilderness and end the session by making some smores on the fire. They loved the idea so off we went.

I spent an afternoon before our session scoping out the perfect location. And this spot along the river was perfect. We ended up having a warmer than usual Fall day on our session date, so flannels were swapped out for a bright yellow dress, and little toes found their way into the river to explore and splash.

I couldn't have asked for a better family to explore this new location with.

Here are some of my favorite moments from this CT river family photography session:

CT Senior Portrait Photography | Connecitcut Senior Portrait Photographer

Senior Portrait Photography Session in Haddam, CT

We could not have asked for a better Fall day for this guys Senior Portrait photography session. I photographed Christopher's older brother's senior portraits a few summers ago, and when their Mom contacted me interested in a Fall session this time for Christopher I knew the perfect spot. Christopher is an avid reader and loves being outdoors. We were able to easily incorporate both of those interests into this scenic Connecticut location.

Here are some of my favorite moments from this high school senior portrait photography session:

New Haven County, CT Newborn Photography | Connecticut Newborn Photographer

It is always such an honor to be invited into a family's home to document such a special time in their live's. It doesn't get much more special than bringing home their sweet newborn baby.

Sweet little Jillian and her Mom and Dad were such a sweet trio during their newborn photography session. Their pup was very interested in what was going on as well, checking in on the baby and getting in some snuggles. Jillian was wide awake and curious during the whole session. She loved getting snuggles with her Mom and Dad.

Here are some lovely moments from this In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Photography Session in Hamden, CT

CT Wedding and Elopement Photography | Connecticut Wedding Photographer

Beautiful Summer Wedding at the Litchfiled Inn in Litchfield Connecticut

Becky and John has the most amazing weather for their Wedding Day. Bright and Sunny, warm but not humid. Their ceremony and reception took place at the beautiful Litchfield Inn in Connecitcut. Their day began with Becky getting ready with close friends and family at the Inn's gorgeous Bridal Suite, can we talk about that red accent wall? Stunning! John and his groomsmen got ready in rustic Cabin Room.

We then headed to Topsmead state park for Becky and John's first look, which was emotional to say the least. Followed by formals with parents and wedding party.

Just weeks before their wedding, Becky and John took in foster pups! We were able to get all of the pups into their wedding day and it added so much fun, and for a good cause! To find these puppies their forever homes. I am thrilled to say all of the puppies have been adopted.

Becky and John's Wedding Day was perfection. From the smallest details to the great big emotion filled moments.

Below is just a small glimpse into their wonderful Wedding Day:

Venue: The Litchfield Inn
Hair and Makeup: Allure Traveling Beauty
Catering: Tavern Off The Green
Cake : Cakes Unlimited
Florist: Custom Floral

Storytelling Family Photography | CT Family Photographer

 
connecticut story telling photography. ct lifestyle family photographer
 

You are sitting in your living room. One child is asking for a snack while you’re trying to help your other child with their shoes. You think about how hard this is to be so needed, feeling split in so many directions.

But then your heart constricts when you remember that all things pass - including the good things, and that one day you won’t be needed so much. You realize how much you want to hold onto this.

Of being needed seemingly every moment of every day, it reminds you of all those who have told you to hold on to these days with everything you have, because it all passes in the blink of an eye.

As a mother myself, I know that ache. The ache to want those dimples on their little fingers to stay forever, the way you hope they never outgrow grabbing your cheeks and nuzzling their nose with yours. But, as a mother...I also know that time doesn't slow down for any of us. Your kids grow and your heart over flows with new things to love every day. But you still ache for all the moments that have passed.

I would be honored to help you document these moments with your children, with YOU in the frame. You are part of their legacy too and you deserve to have moments with your children documented in photographs. Capturing these moments in a tangible way for you to be able to look back on years down the road. To see the way the sunlight catches on your daughter's curls through the kitchen window and be pulled right back into the sound of her laughter as she twirled in the sunlight.

Family photographs serve as a time capsule, freezing your "now" to look back on years down the road. A photograph pulls you right back into that moment, the emotion and sounds come flooding back, even when those tiny feet are now grown and roaming the world on their own.

What is your story? What parts of your family's story do you want to document and treasure for generations to come?

 

 

Before the Session:

We will spend some time planning the session through email or over the phone. What moments do you want to document? Is it your morning routine of taming bedhead and putting the kids on the bus? Is it your child's love of cooking or making art at the dinning room table? Once we decide what we are going to document, we will discuss what time of the day is best and pick a date!

 

What is the session like?

I like to spend some time letting the children get to know me a bit first. Older children often love being able to show off their room. It's the spot in the home that is all theirs. Filled with colors they love and things they enjoy. There are moments when my is camera down and we are just talking and playing. I want everyone to feel comfortable, not just be a lady with a camera. You will spend time with your children while I capture your organic moments.

 

But my house is so cluttered:

No, your house is your home. Who's home is magazine ready? I know mine sure isn't. I have a laundry basket sitting at the top of my stairs just outside my bedroom door that has been there long enough that I have forgotten if its clean or dirty. I should probably go take care of that.
There are going to be toys on the floor. I bet we will unmake and bed you made that morning. There will be snacks on the counter and cups in the sink.

Tidy up. Shove that laundry basket in a closet. Rinse those cups. But please, don't scrub baseboards and wash curtains before I come over.

The focus is documenting your family's love. That is what will be filling my camera frame.

 

I don't think my home has enough natural lighting:

I have photographed in homes with skylights and large french doors. And I have also photographed families in small apartments having a single window in the living room. I see great pockets of light everywhere. I have yet to come across a home that was too dark. I pull open those shades and get to business. 

 

My kid's mood changes 1,746 times day. What if they aren't behaving for our session?

I am pretty sure your idea of behaving and mine are different.
I am a Mama of two myself. Trust me, I get it.

But this is part of why I am absolutely in love with Storytelling Sessions.
There is no pressure. I am not expecting anyone to still and stare into my camera with a fake smile.
I encourage tickle wars and pillow fights. I am there right along side you Mamas, putting down my camera if someone needs a hug or help with their shoes.
Your children are getting your full attention and you are getting to love on your kiddos, all while doing activities that you enjoy.

 

How should we dress for this type of session?

Like yourself! Whatever that means to you. Yoga pants and an over sized sweater, jeans and a flannel. Feel free to let the kids wear their favorite dinosaur shirt. You want to be comfortable and feel like yourselves.

I put together a few images on a Pinterest board of clothing examples if you'd like to take a look: https://www.pinterest.com/RebeccaBeitzel/what-to-wear-documentary-session

 

What happens after the session?

Within a few days from our session I will post a couple of sneak peek images on social media (if you'd like). I love the peek into your gallery that this provides (and I know how anxious you are to see them as well!)  About three weeks after your session, you receive an online password protected gallery to view your digital images. From there you download your high resolution images that are included in your session, as well as any additional digital images and a la carte prints you'd like to purchase.
Your images will also be available to share on social media for friends and family to see!
 

Here are some session Ideas:

Baking cookies
Board games and pizza night
Sunday morning pancakes with bedhead and jammies
Jumping through the sprinkler in the backyard and washing the car
Working on the garden

I would love to chat with you about documenting YOUR story
