CT High School Photographer ~ Senior Model Rep Lizzy Phelps {Ellington High School}

It has been a pure pleasure having Lizzy as my Senior Rep Model for Ellington High School. We have had a very busy summer working together and I feel so bad that I haven’t had a moment to blog. So today I devoted time to share with you all a bit about this wonderful lady.

Lizzy is very involved with school and loves being a cheerleader. I can see why she’s very outgoing and personable. Her smile can warm your day. Some of the things I have learned about Lizzy and her high school years are she has been involved in Ellington High School Rise Above and student council.  Her favorite high school memory so far is Prom. Mr. EHS really makes her laugh (not sure who he is but I would love to meet him).

Lizzy is a big fan of the Yankees and Giants! What…not our Red Sox?!  Lizzy loves shopping at Forever 21 and American Eagle. She loves Florida and spent a good amount of time there this summer. When not cheerleading she can be found spending her weekends working at Ellington Ridge Country Club, shopping, and have a good time with friends.

Lizzy thanks again for representing Joyful Reflections Photography this year and I wish you the BEST in your final year of high school. Continue making wonderful memories.

I will be posting more posts about the amazing seniors I have had the opportunity to photograph in the past few months.

Stacie Amanna Maternity Newborn Sessions / Joyful Reflections Photography

“Motherhood is an experience that opens your eyes and your heart to exactly how magnificent and amazing the gift of life is.”  ~ Donna Newman

I was so honored to have the opportunity to photograph Stacie who is one of the most beautiful, gentle and sweet ladies I know. Whenever I am with her I feel a since of calmness and always enjoy our time with one another. I’m thrilled to have captured these very special moments for Stacie as we know life goes by so quickly. Stacie was actually one week overdue when we were photographing and I was praying we would not be calling 911 during her session. I brought her to a very special place where she would be relaxed and be able to hear the sounds of nature all around. She was in love, as was I.

Stacie is also my makeup artist and one of the finest makeup artists in the Hartford area and takes care of my gals for their senior portraits. Stacie works for  Transcendent and you can follow them on Facebook. Stacie was blessed with her precious little daughter Aubrie Grace 48 hours after her maternity session. Now that’s close! I was so excited to be able to hold Aubrie and photograph her as well.

Here are some of my favorite images from our time together. Thank you again Stacie for trusting me to capture this beautiful time in your life.

Enjoy!  xoxo Catherine
