Engagement session at Sherwood Island | Westport, CT Wedding and Engagement Photographer | Karie Peterson Photography

I met with this couple just about a year ago when they booked their wedding with me, and my how things have changed. They now have a beautiful 6 month old daughter who is such a joy to be around, and it’s only 3 months till the wedding! This family is a dream to photograph and I can not wait till their wedding in July at the Wadsworth Mansion. It is going to be such a special occasion! Congratulations BJ, Beth and Maddy!

Santa’s little helper | 2012 Holiday Portraits | CT Family Portrait Photographer | Karie Peterson Photography

This little one was such a cutie! She knew how to strike a pose every time. I thought the most special moment was when we did a Daddy and me series and she grabbed onto her Daddy’s leg just like I used to. Moments like these always bring me back to the root of why I’m a photographer. To capture timeless memories, and not just the ‘Hallmark’ timeless memories, the real ones, that you’ll remember your whole life. How you felt swinging on your dads legs, or when he would throw you up to the sky when you were playing.

Now the funniest moment is when we came inside to the studio to do some Holiday themed portraits and we tied this little munchkin up in Christmas lights! She was so into it, we laughed so hard the lights came unplugged. Oh what a great holiday card this series would make!

POWER Packed Portraits | Family Portraits | CT Family Portrait Photographer | Karie Peterson Photography

This session packed a lot of POWER behind it! Love, wonder and amazement are just a few of the key words that come to mind when I see the first portrait shown below.  This little man was full of all of those elements that day, and I am so happy I captured it.  His big sisters love him so much when we did our siblings series they all just tickled each other and laughed and held each other tight. I just love the ponchos’ that the girls are wearing too! Their grandmother hand knitted them just for this occasion. I love the bright colors and the bright lights! Merry Christmas to the Powers Family!

Merry Christmas 2012 | CT Family Portrait Photographer | Karie Peterson Photographer

Always have to make time for my favorite little cousin clients! I have been photographing these kids since they were born and they just seem to get cuter and cuter every time we have a session.  This time though, I called them the toothless wonder gang! They are growing up so fast I can’t wait till they are older and I can lay out a picture of every year to see how much they have grown.  The wreaths were such a huge hit too! My fiancé made the wreaths from vines that we found hiking through Tarrywile Park. We later decorated the wreaths with silk flowers and gave them as Christmas gifts. Prop and a Present… doesn’t get much thriftier than that J

First Holiday Card | Danbury CT Portrait Photographer | Karie Peterson Photography

Our first Holiday Card design of the season is a big hit! We wanted to make sure we got it done in time for Hanukkah too so right after we returned from our trip to North Carolina we started booking, shooting, designing and creating some fantastic sessions. Excited to start diving into the season.

Holiday Family Portraits | CT Family Portrait Photographer | Karie Peterson Photography | 2012 Holiday Season Kick Off

We started off the 2012 Holiday Season right with this family! The kids were so excited to get their pictures taken! We played outside and captured some amazing portraits of the kids. Hung on the wall as a series these will look amazing! My favorite image from this collection has to be the sibling portrait though. They were all so relaxed and comfortable with each other it was a blessing to witness.
