Kelly Kirkland Photograpy | CT Family Photographer | A Saturday morning with the Smeraglino family…
Pretty much everyday I realize how lucky I am to do what I love, and love what I do. Working for myself has some perks; I get to set my own hours, stay home with my kids and raise them to the best of my ability…a really flexible, rewarding situation. But one of the most fulfilling aspects of my job is when I can spend a couple of hours with a family that I have just met, and capture some pretty amazing moments between them. It’s such a wonderful feeling to bring joy to others through photography.
Yesterday I spent some time with the beautiful Smeraglino family. Kristen and Dom came over with their 2 beautiful children; Emma and Dominic. This was the first time that the family has had photos taken since they have had children. Kristen and I were chatting about how quickly newborns become infants, and infants become toddlers, and before you know it, you wonder what happened to your little babies! We all wait for “the right time” to do a lot of things in life. But I’m so glad that Kristen chose THIS moment in time to take these photos. Take a look at their gorgeous kiddos.
Meet Emma…the little 3 year old with the BIG personality. She was so adorable and so much fun to be around. We ran, we danced, we laughed, we played dress up. Here are a few shots of the little beauty in action.
And here is her little brother Dominic, who is 5 months old and quite possibly one of the sweetest babies on earth. The boys always get the most amazing eyelashes! He is certainly going to be a little heartbreaker.
Kristen and Dom are very patient and loving parents…I could see that from the first few minutes that we met. Here are a few shots of them with the kids.

Thank you, Kristen, for setting up this session! It was such a great shoot, and I’m so grateful that you chose me for your family’s first photos!
