There’s No Place Like Home: Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill- Middletown CT

November 3, 2018

This session has also been featured on the Every Last Detail Blog – Check out here

I have lived in three states New York, Washington, and of course Connecticut….. No matter where I move to I always make it back home…. Yes the taxes are high, the people are blunt, and the weather isnt always ideal, but it is still home…I am in between Boston and NYC…I get all four seasons…. Most importantly my family is here…. Well my brother lives in Florida, which might as well call itself CT jr with all of its transplants.

Back in June I got to take part in another styled shoot with Styled Shoots Across America…. This was my second time working with them so I knew what to expect…I loved this one because I got to meet some local photographers…. The shoot was a peach plantation theme that featured stunning pinks and corals. The venue was the elegant Wadsworth Mansion that’s vintage quality was highlighted through the elegant fringe dress provided by The Wedding Dress a local bridal gown vendor. The table scape was designed by Sarah Campbell and all I can say is that it is a show stopper.

I think ending birthday week with this post because no matter where the journey of life takes me Connecticut will always be home.
