Good Bye 2012

I thought I would post some of my favorite pics from 2012 that didn't make the blog.

 I love this pic. It's of a very close friend and her little niece looking out at the great big ocean.

My 5 year old niece on her first day of elementary school. So excited, so full of life.
I put this pic on in honor of all the kids at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

One of my favoite pics of the year. Not going to tell you what's going on here. 
Make your own interpretation.

I took this pic to join the campaign "STOP THE TERROR". It started with the daily bombing of Israel in the fall and now has grown to stop terrorism all over the globe.

 I had to put up one of my favorite pics from all the bar/bat mitzvahs I shot this year. 
There's a lot going on at 13, and the dresses, wow!

My favorite chemotherapy patient. She puts her arms up in the shape of a heart right before the treatment starts. Best of luck my new friend.

My daughter fooling around with colored sugar while making xmas cookies.

My son and baby Alice trying to look tough.

My father in law and favorite person, pulling funny faces (he's 92 now!) and my daughter.

I had to add one pic of my dad. He can't understand why he's not on the blog every week.

Happy New Year to all and may 2013 be better than the last.

Holiday Card 2012

The Hooper family annual holiday card is getting a pretty good response this year 
so I thought I'd share it.

The Hoopers like to stay connected over the holidays.
Merry Merry!

Bye Bye Summer

All I've been doing this week is taking pics for holiday cards and no one will let me post any of the shots until after their cards go out! So I'm posting some images from the summer because I am beginning to realize that this cold weather is going to be here for quite some time and I'm not happy about it.

I would love to fall asleep in the sun right now.

The Atlantic Ocean on Long Island glistening the sun.

Lulu laughing in the warm sun

Compo at sunset in summer

Thought I'd add a cool pic of my mom under the blue summer sky. Don't tell her. She'll probably make me delete it.

The Neighbor's House

Our neighbors moved to London and asked me to check on their house the other day. I thought if I took some pics it might make them miss the old place and want rush back for a visit.

Just a few leftover images of the foliage in Westport before the storms.

Before Hurricane Sandy and the Nor'easter

Jennings Beach, Fairfield, CT

I had no idea this beautiful beach was 15 minutes from my house.

I was on my way to a shoot and saw this path.

Look what was at the end of it!

Can you believe how pretty this is in October?

Look carefully- horses on the beach!

Enjoy the Beach

The #2 Spot

Another very popular blog post was the one below about teenagers. I'm not sure if it got such high ratings because you loved it so much or because all the teenagers in town had a look to see if they were in it!

(By the way, that's one of my teenagers in the pic above, trying to ignore me on the train last year)

Happy Birthday Blog!

I happen to notice that yesterday was this little blog's first birthday. So all week I will be sharing your favorite posts of the past year. Below is the link to the most popular posting by far. It's not the post I would have guessed to be #1 but I do love it and it totally embarrassed my daughter.

If you have any ideas to help make the blog more fabulous this year or know of any cool spots to photograph please email me at

Thanks for reading and your support. I can't tell you how much it means to me.

A City Hall Wedding

Contrary to popular belief you don't actually get married at City Hall in NYC.

Signing in...

 The bride waiting for their number to be called...

Still waiting...

It's time!

A short but sweet ceremony...


 Planning their future...

Ahh Compo...

I took these shots of the clouds at sunset last week at Compo Beach and I noticed that all three pics were taken in the same minute just by turning around and facing another direction.  I love Compo.
