Erin + Kyle | Connecticut Wedding
Erin and Kyle were married at The Crocker House in New London, CT in a gorgeous outdoor ceremony. We had so much fun shooting with them because they were both just fun-loving people. Erin said her favorite memory from the wedding was the time spent with Kyle before the wedding (after the first look!) when we were taking photos around the Thames Club. Kyle's favorite memory was their first dance. I asked Erin to describe Kyle in five words, her reply: "a pain in the ass." It's that sassy wit that made us fall in love with these two! Kyle was a tad more diplomatic with his answer: "what I've been waiting for." Awwwwww. We had so much fun shooti ...

Baby Zachary! | Yale/New Haven Hospital | New Haven, CT
This post is long overdue but it is our pleasure to formally announce the birth of our second son, Zachary!
Born on Sunday, April 3, 2016 at 22.5 inches long and 9lbs 15.4oz. He is the perfect addition to our little family.
The birth went relatively smooth, but took a small and unexpected turn. After Larrisa labored all weekend like a champ the doctor informed us that he was just too big to come out to old fashioned way. So he was ultimately born via C-section. We learned once again that parenting (especially births) never goes quite as planned. Nevertheless, we are so thankful he is here and healthy! Today, he is just over 7 weeks old ...

Commencement 2016 | Yale Divinity School | New Haven, CT
For years I dreamed of attending Yale to earn a Masters degree in Religion. Two and a half years ago, on a whim, I decided to submit my application to Yale Divinity School and see what might happen. In February 2014 Larrisa and I had our first son, Aiden, and soon after I learned that I had been accepted to attend my dream school. At the time it seemed like it would be impossible for us to attend. Tuition for two years of graduate school was over $40,000 and that didn't include living costs. I thought it was going to be impossible. But Larrisa told me we could do it. In fact, if I remember right, she said "we are going!" After being awarded s ...

Holly & Kevin | John Chesnut Park Engagement
Holly is a nurse, Kevin is an EMT and they both stole each others hearts (was that cheesy?, ok yea...). Early in the day it looked like it was going to rain, with a huge band of storms heading east from the gulf. I called Holly thinking we'd surely have to reschedule our session, but they were both troopers and wanted to go ahead with the shoot anyway. So I went to Walgreens, bought some plastic bags (for my gear) and a new umbrella then headed to the park praying the rain would stay away. When I met these two at John Chesnut Park in Palm Harbor, it was like getting together with old friends. Holly laughed at all of Kevin's jokes, and her smi ...
