The Details

It’s up to you how much personality you want to bring to your session – if you want a basic headshot we can do that, but most people want more.

You can let me know if you want a certain “crop” otherwise I will take a mix of full body, 3/4 and upper-body shots. 

Additional prints and images are available; Each print and digital package is $140 and includes 1 8×10, 2 5×7 and 2 4×6 prints plus a digital file suitable for grad cards and small reprints. 

What if I do want more than a few? I recommend the regular senior session, we spend more time and can therefore offer more variety and outfit changes. I help with every aspect of planning your session to achieve those out of the box images. 

Sessions are for one person. If you want images with a friend or sibling then book back to back sessions and we’ll take group images in the time between both sessions.

You will be surprised how many images you will have to choose from – please arrive on time to get the most from your session!

I have a white and green cap and gown and you are welcome to borrow them for some of your portraits. 

This type of session would also work for college graduates or anyone wanting “just a few” images.

Mini sessions are only offered on select days in January and February 2023.

Hot Cocoa – The first chocolate drink is believed to have been created by the Maya around 2,500–3,000 years ago. Hot chocolate is consumed throughout the world and comes in multiple variations with a variety of toppings. Do you like a little spice in your hot cocoa or do you prefer whipped cream and marshmallows?

Our annual Planet Photo Tribe holiday party photos shoot is always a favorite. As much for the snacks, hot cocoa and games as for the actual photo shoot! I love how close this group has become and we had no problem at all having some holiday fun. 

We could not agree on our favorite Christmas movie – what would you pick? Elf? A Christmas Story? The Holiday? 

Mine is Love Actually!

Merry Christmas from the 

Planet Photo Tribe.

I am so glad to live in a world where there are Octobers – L.M. Montgomery

The Connecticut fall colors were spectacular this year. Every year millions of visitors come to New England to see the glory of fall color and we are reminded how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful part of the country. We pick apples, eat apple cider donuts, drink apple cider and jump into giant leaf piles (if we are lucky!) The summer was hot and humid and we know that once winter takes hold the days will be cold and short but for now we enjoy this amazing time in New England. 

Thanks to Regan, Gabby, Sebastian, Erin and Katie for joining me on a leafy walk at Lover’s Leap State Park in New Milford.

Stranger Things Styled Shoot

“The Duffer Brothers developed Stranger Things as a mix of investigative drama and supernatural elements portrayed with horror and childlike sensibilities, while infusing references to the pop culture of the 1980s.”

CT_teen_Photographer_Styled_shoot

Audiences have been obsessed with Stranger Things since it premiered in 2016. We have seen the stars grow up over four seasons and the interest in them hasn’t wained. Like all good tv show obsessions we follow along in their real lives as well as their on screen exploits.  

References to the 1980s have entertained young and old viewers of Stranger Things. Kate Bush finally made it to number one with her song, first released in 1985, “Running up that hill” Whether audiences are watching to reminisce or to learn about an era before they were even born, Stranger Things has nailed the 80’s vibe. Maybe we long for the days before video games and social media when a Sony Walkman was pretty high tech? 

Dungeons and Dragons anyone?

The Tribe turn red, white and blue!

july 4th teen group shoot

Happy birthday America! From the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, to picnics, parades, and fireworks, wear your red, white and blue and reflect upon the meaning of liberty and justice for all. We wanted an excuse to get a big group together to celebrate the end of the school year and what better theme than a July 4th teen group shoot!

When I first move to the US people would ask me if we celebrated July 4th in England? The answer of course was no! but who doesn’t love a mid summer holiday with great food, friends and fireworks. The fact that my birthday is just 2 days earlier makes it even better – fireworks for my birthday! 

I hope you enjoy all these fun smiling faces and have a wonderful weekend wherever you are!

Thanks to Rene at Lucia for bringing your wonderful vintage truck (complete with July 4th decorations!) and to the Silo for a stunning backdrop.

Bridgerton inspired Portrait Shoot

Did you know that sometimes I rent clothes for the Planet Photo Tribe shoots? I want my team to be able to wear amazing outfits that match our theme without them (or me) having to spend big bucks! I wanted to do a Bridgerton inspired shoot. You might have noticed the crossover of Edwardian styling into the high street. Corsets, flowered dresses and puff sleeves are showing up this year after the success of the blockbuster Netflix series. 

Erinn and Gabby looked elegant in their flowered dresses and we needed a classic backdrop to compliment their outfits. Harrybrooke Park in New Milford is a favorite of mine and their gardens are beautiful at the moment. 

Selecting a location that adds to your styling for the shoot is key. For regular clients the consultation is the time to go over the outfits you plan on wearing and we choose the locations that day. I always say a successful portrait is all about the details and the planning! Have you ever used one of the rental services for a special occasion of just to mix up your wardrobe for work? I started using Nuuly a couple of years ago and I love having access to Anthropologie, Free People and some unique international brands. 

Choosing a location and styling the shoot is one of my favorite parts of the preparation. I love to match personalities with locations and styling with the colors of the location. It’s like a jigsaw puzzle that elevates your portraits to the next level. It’s my goal to deliver something unique, personal and memorable for all my clients. 

If you would like to talk about teen portraits or plan your high school senior’s portrait session then don’t hesitate!

Euphoria is a gritty HBO drama with an extreme story line that has become a cultural phenomonan. TikTok and instagram are full of makeup, clothing and nail inspiration drawn from the show – The Euphoria aesthetic has gone mainstream. 

Styling this shoot was so much fun! Thanks to Katie, Erinn and Regan, who we imagined as a group of friends who attend the same high school as the characters who star in Euphoria, and Sam for her help behind the scenes.

To say that Davy’s work on the epic teen drama has sparked a makeup movement would be an understatement. Merging teen reality with escapist fantasy, Davy is catapulting Gen Z’s makeup obsession—and unbridled experimentation—into the mainstream with sparkle and nuance. “Teenagers are switching things up constantly,” she explains, “Gen Z uses makeup not only to portray who they are, but who they want to be that day.” Lauren Valenti for Vogue.

Euphoria‘s makeup department head Doniella Davy says she draws inspiration for the show’s unique beauty looks, like dramatic under-eye glitter that resembles tears and neon eyeliner, from real-life teens and social media. She adds that the fast-paced nature of the Internet combined with Gen Z’s willingness to experiment mean that there’s even more opportunity for Gen Z to create.

Editorial photography is a type of photography that aims to tell a story or portray a concept. Editorial photography is commonly found in magazines, newspapers, editorial features, and journalism. Unlike commercial photography, editorial photography relies much more on story than it does on a brand.

Black and white photography is and has been a powerful visual medium, removing the color from an image tells a story in a different form. Ted Grant said, “When you photograph people in color you photograph their clothes. When you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their soul!” I didn’t shoot the images in black and white, but we did make all the details black and white. The styling, the set and the props were all black and white so that in the majority of the images all that remained in color was the beautiful skin tones and I love how they illuminate these images. 

I could have photographed this set over and over again and I was thrilled to have Gabby and Katie in the studio. Don’t they look amazing?

By the way, if you are thinking of using these sticker decals to decorate let me know, and I can give you some removal techniques. Let’s just say that they go on a lot faster than they come off and we’ll leave it at that!
