Maternity Session in Wallingford, CT | Rachel

I love working with Rachel for a couple of reasons. She is always up for whatever I suggest. She is a good sport about it, and always rocks every look I throw out there! She is also so fluid in front of the camera which makes me have a ton of fun behind the camera.

I was so excited when she came to me asking for a maternity session. We had a few ideas…and this is what we came up with…

Meghan & Randy – Maternity Photography in Wallingford, CT

First of all, I must say that I think most pregnant women would like to look and feel as great as Meghan looks! I for one know that when I was pregnant, I felt like a whale. Well, not Meghan…she has been working out her whole pregnancy, eating right, and just radiates from head to toe with that gorgeous pregnancy glow!

I was so excited when Meghan and Randy suggested that we do their maternity session at Randy’s business site! Randy has his own business, Mangino Excavation, so we were free to do whatever we wanted! I was loving the big trucks and I love that Meghan wore boots that went with the whole theme!

Randy’s son was a champ and hung out with us for a few minutes for some family photos, then he was off to race his quad around the grounds…having way more fun than hanging out with us (obviously lol)

Baby Jameson – Newborn Photography in Wallingford, CT

I have been lucky enough to cuddle with lots and lots of newborns lately! It seems like all of my clients are having babies, and it is so exciting to see the next generation of Amanda Rose Photography fans come into this world! Just kidding, but I have been super excited by all of the adorable, squishable, loveable babies I get to hold and play with! Jameson is no exception! He is such a cutie pie, and had quite a personality! We got to get some of him alone, and some with his big brother, Dylan and big sister, Madison! What a lucky kid to have two great older siblings that are so proud of their new little brother!

Baby Cole – Newborn Photography in Wallingford, CT

Anyone that knows me, knows that I don’t photograph newborns very often…in fact hardly ever! So you know it is a very special baby if they make it up on my blog! I have been fortunate enough to photograph these clients at their wedding and both of their children!

Meet the adorable, squish-able Baby Cole…

Introducing the newest member of my family…Meet Frankie!

I don’t post my personal photos very often, but since our son Frankie was born, I figured it’s a good excuse to get some new photos up! Our daughter Kyla is now 2 years old and is such a great big sister to her new little brother. She joined us for his photos and it was such a giggly silly time with her “Frankie Boy” as she calls him.

and then a fun little “behind the scenes” outtake from our session. My amazing hubby Frank was helping me with the kids and after Kyla finished, she wanted to give her Frankie Boy a fist bump. Oh how I love all of the funny things kids do!

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!

Layla – Baby Photography in Wallingford, CT

Baby Layla is so beautiful! She is such a happy baby, with such a huge smile and gorgeous blue eyes! We lucked out and had the most amazing fall day so we had to take advantage of the perfect weather!!

          

Even Layla’s big ‘fur’ brother Kobey joined us. I also absolutely love this photo of the whole family…we were going for a cute kiss on the cheek but Layla wasn’t having it. Her expression is priceless!!!

          

          

Leaves are sooo yummy! 4 out of 5 babies would agree!

The Finizio Family – Family Photography in Stratford, CT

I absolutely loved photographing the Finizio family!  When I told the kids that they were so good in front of the camera and I thought they should be supermodels…they informed me that they actually BOTH used to be models when they were babies! Well, I didn’t realize that I was working with seasoned professionals lol. They were just too much fun and were up for anything!

We decided to meet in Boothe Memorial Park in Stratford…so beautiful there!!

          

          

          

Happy Halloween & Happy Fall From Kyla

Happy Halloween and Happy Fall (even though it looks like winter here in New England) to all of my clients, friends, and family…with love from my little “Ghoul” and daughter Kyla.

Meow!

          

                              

          

The Rodriguez Family – Family photography in Hartford, CT

I absolutely loved working with the Rodriguez family! Each member has a very unique personality and the kids were a hoot! They asked me if they kids could wear traditional Korean outfits for some of the photos, and of course I was super excited!! They were SOOO stinkin’ cute in them! We meet up at Wickham Park in Manchester, CT, in the Oriental Gardens. It was so peaceful and serene, but we brought a whole lot of family fun!
