Ok, as promised, blogging more. This sweet little guy’s newborn session was back in March. I met his wonderful family at their home for Declan’s session, and also got to meet their adorable pup Madison. She was very attentive during photos, I think she wanted to be in every shot! She was such a sweet dog, and so good with Declan. I just loved his nautical themed nursery, so I included a couple of photos of that too – love that giant piece of driftwood! Declan loved being snuggled by mom and dad and slept through pretty much the whole session. Scroll down for some of my favorites from their session.
I know things have been quiet on the blog front – I’m getting back to it, promise! I was the genius who decided to completely move/update her website & blog while selling our current home and buying a new one…at the end of the school year. So some things had to take a little break while I got others under control. (Although don’t access my website on your phone/ipad yet, that part isn’t done at all.) Before my fall explodes with weddings and sessions and moving and school, I wanted to quickly blog some personal photos from the summer. I have a TON of work sessions to blog too, which I will! I still have sessions from last year that haven’t seen the light of day yet, yikes. Soon!
These are some of my favorites from our recent trip to the Cape with family. It was a quick but action-packed weekend of beach time, crabbing, swimming, ladder ball, and general goofiness. The kids had a blast hanging out with their cousins, and it was great to get out of town for a little bit. I think next summer I need a beach house, I had WAY too much fun with my camera down there! I’m always happy to make the trip down to the beach, so get in touch with me if you’d like beach photos too!
We snuck this session in last November, just in the nick of time before the holidays. After an “A for effort” attempt at photos on a freezing cold and windy Saturday, we met up again the following day on what was one of the last lovely mornings of 2014, with the most beautiful light. Little J was much happier on Sunday too, without the red nose and freezing little fingers. There is no predicting New England weather, and I’d rather have happy (and warm!) clients, so this was a simple decision for us.
This sweet little family are repeat clients of mine, you may recognize them from Jack’s newborn photos way back in July 2013. His nursery was amazing, remember? It was so great to catch up with them again, and see how big J has gotten! We met at the Boston Public Garden for photos, and took Jack over to the Make Way for Ducklings statue first (it can get crowded over there) – he was a little skeptical at first, but was quick to make friends with them. We walked around the Public Garden for a while, and took advantage of the gorgeous morning. Below are just a few of my favorites.
I shot engagement photos for these two fabulous people last fall, so we could take advantage of the beautiful fall we were having. Their session was another instance of me testing out a couple of new locations, with great results. I’ve said it before, but I just love finding new spots to shoot around here. Especially when I have such willing and adventurous subjects! I can be a little bit of a chicken when scouting locations – visions of creepy bugs, wild animals and ticks are always in my head – so when I get two people so comfortable being outside and not worried about a few pricker bushes, I find a little added confidence. And finding some great spots so close to home is always a bonus.
Their wedding later this year is going to be an amazing time – and I speak from having been at weddings with them both before.Does this image below look familiar? They’re both in there!
Below are just a few of my favorites from our late fall session last November. K&K, I can’t wait to see you in September!
This is one of my favorite sessions from last fall. Amazing weather, sunset light, and the beach? Always. Bonus that this was with an old friend who I hadn’t seen since high school, and had a great time meeting his family and catching up! I drove to the Cape for this session, and used my connections to secure a sweet location for them. (I really don’t have connections, just in this one case I did, ha.) The kids all loved playing on the beach and throwing rocks and shells in the water, and walking out on the jetty. What I would give to live this close to the beach all the time – note to self, book more beach sessions this year, definitely. Sunset can be a tricky time for photos with younger kids – this was right during dinnertime for these guys. But their parents came prepared with dinner, so they were able to eat right after we were done shooting, and even go out for ice cream after. Sounds like a perfect night to me! Enough talking, on to my favorites.
