So we got a puppy, a big puppy…..a Rhodesian Ridgeback. Without a ridge. Yes they come without a ridge. They are either born with or without a ridge. And my son, Stryder chose one without a ridge. He actually chose my son. He is named Hashtag. A name that was heavily debated in the Hanson household for several months while we waiting for Mr. Hashtag to be born and then anxiously awaited to meet him and wait again for him to be ready to come home!
So he finally came home a few weeks ago – he’s still getting acclimated, but we love him (especially when he sleeps). He’s very cuddly and super soft!
Here are some photos from his first photoshoot……without further adieu
Jannett and Jose were married on a gorgeous last fall and I was so thrilled to be part of their awesome wedding. The day was perfect, from the weather, to their fun bridal party to the love that the two shared….it was a perfect dream wedding.
Here is a photo montage of their with a few of my favorite photos. Enjoy

Below you see beautiful images of Dimi – one of my past brides who so graciously has helped me to build my new portfolio…nothing but love for Dimi.
In all the world, there is no heart for me like yours.
In all the world, there is no love for you like mine.”
To say that Dimi and Nick were one of my favorite couples is an understatement! They are fun, funny and perfect for each other. The way they look at each other, you just can instantly feel the love between them, it gives me goosebumps! Plus they are so easy to photograph.
Their wedding was so pretty and a ton of fun – here are a few of my favorite images from their big day:
I always love doing these posts because it gives me a chance to relive some of the awesome moments of the year before. Some that totally make me laugh, smile and yep, even get teary eyed. One thing is for sure, I love all my clients – they rock! In this particular post I’m just doing weddings of 2014 – don’t worry I will be doing engagements in another 😉
Last year I had weddings as far away as Boston and Canterbury (yes that’s in CT)! Also as close to my house as Norwalk and it was in the middle of a monsoon – but you’d never know because the bride and groom let it roll right off and the caterers rocked it out – like it was no big deal.
We had one amazing fairytale wedding and one amazing wedding where the groom actually helped the bride get dressed (yep, you read that right)! It was a first for me too and I loved everything about it. That is why I love what I do, every wedding is different, fun, unique and that is my style!
So without further ado – here are my awesome moments of 2014 that I share with you….
All Hands On Deck (i.e. Getting Ready)
Just The Couple
Crazy Fun Times
Everything Else That I Love
I feel like at this stage of the game we are all always wondering what happened? How did the year fly? How are my kids another year older? I don’t even remember everything that happened this year! I blinked and I feel like I missed everything!
I’d like to say 2014 was a kick ass awesome year personally and professionally for me – but yeah it wasn’t. There were struggles, with both. But isn’t life supposed to be easy right? While I only had 23 photo shoots this year I feel like they all were awesome and I had a blast with each and everyone of my clients. I also did a lot of networking and met a ton of new vendors. In 2015 I will get more outside of my comfort zone and network even more and really hustle and hopefully get more referrals.
Personally, well it’s never easy with a husband that works non-stop and two kids that are involved with crazy before school AND after-school activities as well as weekend sporting events, to run a business, but we made do (I think) and we never left anyone Home Alone style anyway 😉 And I even managed to coach my daughter’s soccer team and my husband and I both coached my daughter and son’s baseball teams (I know parents of the year right)!!
So for 2015 I’m not making any resolutions – I’m making little daily (or maybe weekly-baby steps right) tasks/resolutions for things that I need/want to do and then crossing them off as I finish them!
I feel like odd years are always more of MY YEAR – plus this year I will be the big 40!
So that means I have no excuses! Cheers to 2015 and whatever it may bring you!! xoxo Heidi
