CT motherhood mini sessions

my motherhood mini sessions were SO fun + special last year that i couldn't resist doing them again! As I countdown the days until our next baby arrives (she's due in THREE days) i can't help but dream of the moments i want to capture with these sessions; thoughtful, artful + honest moments being a mom. 

The sessions will be held on Saturday, May 12 with a rain date of Saturday, May 19. 

The goal of these sessions is to capture authentic, honest moments of motherhood and to give you a chance to maybe dress up a bit + feel extra fabulous. Each session is 30 minutes in length at a secret location of my choosing (close to Trumbull - which I'll share!). 

If you are interested in securing one of the five spots available, please inquire with me at storiesofsentiment@gmail.com. 

Below are some very special images from a motherhood mini session last year. adore this mom and daughter duo!

connecticut in-home lifestyle - video teaser

it never occurred to me when i called will talamelli about a video idea for my lifestyle business that i'd be seeing a teaser that could make me smile (and tear up!) so much. (if you are a bride, beg him to shoot your wedding. and if you have a corporate video job - beg, too!)

i'll go more into the video + my dreams around it when the full + final version is completed; but for now, a tease!

 

motherhood mini sessions in CT

fun + cheery news: i'll be hosting outdoor, motherhood mini sessions this month! the number one thing i hear from mothers is that they are "never, ever, ever in photos with their children."  this is a chance for you to celebrate being a mother, to put the phone away, have a designated time to enjoy + revel in your child(ren) + to have it documented into a curated collection of images. 

sessions are being held in the fairfield county area on Saturday, May 6; contact me at storiesofsentiment@gmail.com for more information + details!

the birth of stories of sentiment

i am continually asked where my passion for lifestyle photography began. after all, i'm a wedding photographer first + foremost (my wedding website is here if you are curious!) becoming a mother was certainly part of where my love for documenting families began but it's more than that.

i was recently talking with a friend + had an epiphany; i know where my passion really lived all this time. it lived in my journey in becoming a mother. the pain of wanting to experience parenthood as i struggled with infertility + the fear that i'd never get the chance to be someone's mother. the nights i'd cry + wonder if i'd ever get to wipe away spit up, change blow-out diapers, splash in the bath, chase after a fresh toddler, hide teeth for the tooth fairy ... the list of my dreams around motherhood was endlessly filled with silly sentiments of everyday life. these sentiments are what i clung to in my heart as i prayed + hoped for a child. (he's here by the way - 2.5 years old + the reason i am so happy ... and exhausted!)

when i come to your home, i hide away in the corners + crawl around your floors seeking all that your days are filled with. i hope that my heart sees fleeting moments that you may not even know matter to you right now. moments that aren't frozen in time with your iPhone or written in a journal but are part of your parenthood story. a tiny motion, times that happen + are over before we know it; these moments are your legacy,your family's story. i can't wait to help you tell it through thoughtful, honest + artful photographs. this is your #mystoryofsentiment collection. 

below are a few photos of my sweet boy being ... well, him.
