Many folks have asked how they could make a gift of my photography. For the person who has everything, or one who’s not interested in things, or one who would simply appreciate it, here are some FUN and UNIQUE gift ideas for last minute shoppers. Perhaps this is the gift you have never thought to give or the one you haven’t been able to find. These gifts are different, beautiful and perfect for your lovely someone. Plus, they come at a great savings:
All gifts come with a lovely frame or ornament wrapped with care as a token of the commission that awaits. Orders will be taken through the 22nd of December. Let’s get shopping!
Consider giving a CHILD’S PORTRAIT COMMISSION - a classic heirloom portrait in black and white that perhaps catches the soulful gaze of a young one. I regularly take this sort of portrait of my own children and they are always adored by my friends and family. I extend this offering to all of you because these are my most prized treasures. Regularly priced
350.00, but now 175.00 ( includes 8 files from the shoot).
Or consider a FAMILY ADVENTURE COMMISSION – This idea comes from my heart. I have these moments when– as a family– we are hiking together, planting/harvesting our garden, taking a morning at the beach, visiting the local orchard, chopping down a christmas tree, sailing, sledding, or just sharing any kind of good time. This is when I think to myself– WOW!!!– this is simply gorgeous. I wish I had a photographer here to see all this yumminess! I have long since stopped doing organized portraiture with matching outfits and grumpy kids. In my own family, once a year is enough when we take THE family picture. It’s often an artificial, forced interruption of activity. Let’s face it– it’s simply not much fun. But when a family does what a family loves most, it’s pure joy. And guess what? A family having fun and being together is photo worthy! As an example, the pictures below were made when we went to the flower farm to pick flowers for Grammie’s birthday. Regularly priced
895.00, now 495.00 (includes 75 files from the shoot; local destinations preferred).
Or, for the recently engaged, all WEDDING COMMISIONS through the month of January are 10% off. Maybe this makes it possible to have a professional photographer at your wedding. Or maybe it frees up some of the budget to get a wedding album. Whatever the case, I hope this will create a new possibility for you.
Whatever package you choose, take this as a gift from me to you! But remember to act quickly, as orders are only taken through the 22nd of December. Merry Christmas!
Married on one of the prettiest fall days, Juliette and Andy came together and shared vows. Heartfelt and sweet vows. There are so many parts of a wedding day that I love and certainly way up there if not the top is the time of promises. Chaz Zezulka always brings a lovely and inspirational message and we all joined together in celebrating the coming together of Mr. and Mrs. Parker! A big thank you for the gorgeous flowers from Charlotte at Thames River Greenery and also to Jen with coordination and yummy morsels with Gourmet Galley.
Keith and Laura became family amongst the most dearest people on a lovely fall day with warm weather and yes – flip flops and a carousel! These gestures of ease and fun say a lot about them. They breathe in and breathe out loving and celebrating. It just comes naturally to them. Not so much being at the center of it all, but more so letting their friends and family being the center of their lives! Truly awesome! But much more than that, these two lovelies who let me into their awesome story of being married are part of my family. Cute flower girl – my niece! Thank you for having Amanda and I share in the FUN! We had a blast.
Beautiful fall weddings are something else! Rose and Mike, two dear and lovely people became family at the Litchfield Country Club on one of these gorgeous days. What a day! What a party!
Thank you so much for having Steve and I there to capture such love and beauty. More to come soon with all the fun fall tent decor !!! Stunning!
Big love in the Borough!!! Here’s a little glimpse of two dear ones who are very much in LOVE!!! Jon and Erin are soon-to-be married at Saltwater Farms Vineyard! We spent a little time being together at the point in the Borough and then headed over to another little beach. These guys felt like old friends. What an awesome job to blessed in meeting great people doing wonderful things for the world. One other thing, one of my favorite Latin American countries is Peru. Jon is from there and I am thrilled to see how this beautiful culture mingles with the romantic details of Saltwater this weekend. Thanks to you both for a lovely evening and the beginnings of us being in each other’s lives.
Block Island has so many things that I love including this couple. Devin and Mike were married at the prettiest place out there. We had beautiful showers and a smart bride who proposed the idea of doing some photos the day after in lieu of the the immense downpour on the actual wedding day. Thanks to all for having me, I felt so loved by so many. What a family!
A sweet preview from another dear couple this year. Seriously adorable in every way. Alex and Tyler celebrated with so many sweet family members at one of the most romantic and yet relaxed venues, Jonathan Edwards Vineyard. I love that they wore cowboy boots with their wedding attire. Some great folks helped make the date extraordinary, Russel Morin – awesome food -YUM! Hana Floral Design delivered stunning flowers. More to come in the upcoming weeks when the full release goes live.
