Holiday Sessions 2018

November 11, 2018

This year my holiday sessions took place at Herzig Tree Farm in Durham, Connecticut. You can't get more classic New England with a great family photo in a tree farm. The weather is always crazy here but rainy and cloudy mornings turned into sunny afternoon and even wind!

My first family was with little Emma who was so darling -- the smiles came with very little effort. Then the Ighani family came by the farm with Aiden and his puppy brothers, Mattingly and Jeter to celebrate his first Christmas. His grandmother made his stocking and it was special to hang it up in the tree nearby. The Cruz family has endless energy and its been awhile since photographing baby Nora. Why do these kids have to grow up! Another family heirloom was on display with Colton sitting in his father's sleigh -- just missing a bit of snow to pull him along but man look at that smile!

I want to thank everyone for participating and braving those conditions. I can't ask for cuter kids and amazing parents to celebrate the season with. My sessions also concluded with an announcement for my recently married couple! Happy Holidays 2018!

More About Mariel

This blog is a small representation of my most current sessions, my clients love stories and all the adventures I am privilaged to go on! Ways to my heart include coffee, feeding me before I am "hangry" and anything shabby chic/rustic. My vintage camera collection grows everday and I am usually smiling and quoting random movies. Most importantly Mariel O. Photo celebrates love in all forms regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation & gender identity.
