Such a beautiful family I look forward to seeing every fall. We hit the Conservatory Gardens just at the right time. The flowers could not of looked more perfect, and neither could these kiddies.

I don’t know about you, but as beautiful as these snowy months can be, they sure seem to linger. One of the best ways to fight the winter blues is to stay busy. I typically try to tackle some of those projects that were set aside during the fall and holiday season when we were all so pressed for time. If a photo gallery has been on your list of to-do’s, now is the perfect time to get started. A blank wall can be very intimidating, so allow me to help!

966fe4b3-bf74-4d18-a928-39a1f1660d0e

There’s no better way to make your home feel more homey than by a well-curated photo gallery. Every home should have an area dedicated to family photos, whether in a stairwell, hallway, or even in a family room. Any wall will do, large or small.

Design only  - $500

We’ll meet to measure the area and discuss the style of the gallery. I’ll then design the wall and provide you with a layout for you to install on your own.

Design, Choose Frames, and Install – $1,000

If you’re looking for a more turnkey solution, I can meet you at the framer’s to assist with selecting frames (or help you order online), and oversee the process through completion. I’ll set up the installation and be on site to make sure it’s hung properly.

Cost of prints not included.

westport family photographer // summer 2016

I’ve been photographing this beautiful family since their oldest was born, over 10 years ago. Our annual shoot is always one I truly look forward to. We played in their backyard and even took a spin around the driveway. Seeing how the kids have changed over the years is one of the things I love most about being a family photographer. It’s hard to believe I’ve been doing this for over 10 years!
