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…




This gorgeous headpiece was custom-made by the amazing talents of Jennifer Dougan!








I am SOOO in love with this image…I just couldn’t decide if I liked it better in color or Black & White…you decide.









Rachel & Jordan, I can not wait until your little girl arrives! Congratulations!! xo


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!



A quick shout out to the team that helped make Meghan look extra gorgeous for this shoot:

Styling: Christine at The Dressing Room

Hair: Stephanie Willard from Joiya Day Spa & Hair Design

Makeup: Joyce Ragozzino Johnston



I absolutely adore this next photo of Meghan! I love the beautiful light and the serenity of the whole image!






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)







Congratulations Meghan & Randy! I can’t wait to meet your little man when he arrives!!! xo

Country Maternity Photography – New Haven, CT | Stephanie & Mike

Not only was this a super cute maternity session, we were also celebrating the engagement of Stephanie & Mike! Love her adorable little belly, and how cute and cuddly they are. The good news is, their little girl will be born in a few days and I couldn’t be happier for them!







I’m obsessed with Stephanie’s STUNNING crystal clear blue eyes! Mike has these awesome light eyes too, so chances are their baby girl is going to have some amazing peepers!!



Wishing Stephanie & Mike all of the happiness in the world with their little princess that is due any day now! xo

Maternity Session – Twin Brooks Park – Trumbull, CT | Sheena & Jeff

I’ve been lucky enough to capture so many exciting moments in Sheena & Jeff’s life…and now, I am so thrilled to do their maternity session. As they prepare for their little girl to arrive, I could see the joy in their face and the love in their hearts bursting every time we talked about their little princess!

Sheena has the cutest little round belly…it was just perfect! When she was sitting on this bench alone, it was reminding me of a preggo Audrey Hepburn!





Sheena & Jeff, I look forward to meeting your precious little angel when she arrives! xo

Kelly & Dave – Maternity Photography in Wallingford, CT

Not only are Kelly and Dave two of the sweetest people I know, but they are also about to be parents for the first time! They are super excited about their upcoming journey into parenthood, and I have no doubt that they will be incredible!

You may also recognize Kelly because she is one of my amazingly talented makeup artists for my boudoir sessions! Be sure to check out her work here!




Gina & Leo – Maternity Photography in Wallingford, CT

I *heart* Leo and Gina. They are both such lovely individuals, but together they are just the most fabulous people I know! I can only think of one more thing that will make them even more fabulous…having a baby! Lucky for us all, that is the case!






Isabella Luciana was born on March 31st and is a happy, healthy baby girl! I can’t wait to grab some shots of their precious little girl…be sure to check back for them! Congratulations Leo & Gina!!!

Lara & Bill – Maternity Photography in San Francisco, California

My most favorite thing about Lara & Bill is that they are madly in love with one another. My 2nd favorite thing about them is that they are having a baby. My 3rd favorite thing about them is that they asked me to come out to San Francisco, California to capture their love and their growing family! Of course I jumped at the opportunity since I’ve never been to San Fran and I’ve been dying to get out there!

They took me to all of the hot spots in the city, but first we started out at their home for some more intimate shots in the morning.

Then their puggle Indy joined us for some a nice walk in the park.


Next we headed into the city to check out places like Lombard Street, Fisherman’s Wharf, and the Golden Gate Bridge.

How do you end the perfect day? Head to the beach!


Big thanks to the ultra fabulous Lara & Bill for having me out in the great state of CA for such an incredible trip. I wish you both the best of luck while you start your family.
