Payin' it forward - Robin Dini style!
A little while back, right before Christmas (ok, a long while back?) Robin Dini, a fabulously fun CT photographer, wrote the following:
"So, as a fellow photographer, my gift to Connecticut photographers out there, if they so choose to accept, is a family portrait session courtesy of me. This could be a day in the life session, a quick session with the family, or just you and your spouse on a walk for an hour or so. Basically, I want to hang out with you guys, chat it up, and give you some fun pictures of YOU in them! It could be so fun!"
Well, I jumped on the bandwagon as fast as I possibly could and emailed Robin right away. You see, despite the fact that I take photos of other people and their families, the last time someone (my husband's super but non-photographer friend) took a photo of my family together was in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in 2006 and with my old point and shoot camera. Ummm, it's 2009 already. Hello, three years have quickly passed and I realized I had no up-to-date photos of me and my favorite boys. So, when Robin emailed me back to say I was one of the first people to contact her, I was soo excited! We set up a date, got dressed and ready to roll, and then smiled pretty for the camera.

I love the gift that Robin has given us. For when the time comes for me to look back on my life, I know from the bottom of my heart that the thing that will matter most to me is the time I spent with my family, the people I love most in life. For Robin to give us the gift of a photograph that captures just a moment of our time together, is absolutely priceless. And for that I am forever grateful. Thank you Robin for your gift of time and photography, I am so happy to have these photos of my family. SO. Incredibly. Happy. Thank you.
So, now it's my turn. For any CT photographer out there who is interested in capturing a moment of your or your family's life, I am paying it forward. It's my turn to take some photos of you. If you are interested please email me. We'll spend some time together and then I'll edit and give you the photos from your session on a CD. I will only ask for one thing in return - that YOU pay it forward too! So if you are interested, email me! Can't wait to hear from you!! :)
