Received this amazing note from Josi! Can’t believe Stefania is so grown up!!! Had to share….
We decided when our daughter was 2 years old to look for a “real” professional photographer. Highly recommended by a trusted co-worker, we drove down to East Brookfield from Littleton, MA, convincing ourselves on the long drive down with a 2 year old, this would be the only portrait we’d do, since it was over an hour drive from home. Over the river and through the woods, but oh so worth it when we saw the slide presentation of our beautiful 2 year old, capturing all of her facial expressions, from frowns to giggles to pensive to playful! And how do you pick just one! Thank you to Kristen for helping us sort through them! I still want them all!
Well, we have come back to East Brookfield every year, sometimes twice a year, and sometimes more since that first trip. We’ve done Birthday, Christmas, Bunnies, Chicks, Special Grandmothers, First Communion, Sweet 16 and now, Senior Portraits. And each time we came back because Rich is THE best portrait photographer and it is so worth the trip. He even has cookies waiting for us, knowing how much we love his “home baked” cookies and in the winter, the warm mulled apple cider! Everyone is relaxed and at ease, no pressure, just welcoming and inclusive of the children and the parents. With younger children, he sings Disney tunes off key and just brings out the best expressions, giggles, and smiles. With older, jaded teens he speaks their language, gets goofy, pretends he doesn’t really get it, making them laugh and of course, roll their eyes! His antics serve a purpose, capturing the essence of the child. We trust his judgment and his creativity every time, and are never disappointed. We just finished Senior Portraits and they were amazing, truly captured our daughter’s personality.
Thank you for capturing the true essence and unique personality of our daughter every step of the way, every year, from a toddler in a tiara and tutu to a young woman dreaming of her future.
Thank you Rich and Kristen, you rock!!
See you soon!
The Rizzolo Family, Josi, Tony and Stefania
