Jimmy Turns One – Baby Cake Smash in Wallingford, CT

I fee like it was only yesterday that I was shooting little Jimmy’s newborn photos! And now, he is a big boy! Jimmy is turning ONE!!

   

   

This adorable smash cake was provided by the super talented Sara of You’ve Been Cupcaked!! Her cakes and cupcakes are beyond yummy!!

Although Jimmy didn’t smash the cake to smithereens, he did a pretty good job revealing the funfetti and orange frosting inside!

Diva L – Boudoir Photography in Durham, CT

Diva L has a great style…a little bit ‘pin up’, a little bit rock star, and a little bit beauty queen. She knew how to bring all of those personalities to her boudoir session.

              

              

              

Billy & Dawn – Surprise 50th Birthday!

Billy and Dawn are so lucky that their children decided to throw a fabulous “surprise” 50th birthday party for them both. Since their birthdays fall within a month of each other, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate that at one big party with all of their family and friends around them. Let me tell you, this group knows how to have a good time!

Meet Dawn, the birthday girl and Billy, the birthday boy…

Anthony’s 1st Birthday

I can’t believe that my newphew is already one! It is amazing to watch him grow up…it seems like he gets bigger every week!! Here are a few highlights of his First Birthday Party!

Anthony was fashionably late for his own party since he was busy taking a nap.

Griffin Hospital Celebrates 100 years!

Recently, Griffin Hospital in Derby had a huge celebration to honor their 100th year of service. This event was open to the public and provided Griffin the chance to say “Thank You” to the people in the community that have been loyal to them for all of these years. I was so excited when I was asked to come and capture the day’s activities. Here are a few of my favorites.

Of course they had tons of cake and ice cream for everyone

Griffin provided the public with behind-the-scenes tours of their new emergency room and new operating rooms. It’s not so scary when your Dr. is a stuffed bear!IMG_9850 copyIMG_9847 copy

 

Griffin Hostpital is also a big advocate of music therapy. These were some of the great performers throughout the hallways.
