Paula & Chris are getting married later on this year, so we met up last summer for their engagement photo session. We had been going back and forth all day, as there were storms rolling through – you know exactly the kind I’m talking about. Afternoon summer thunderstorms, so typical for New England. Fast moving, but torrential and slightly terrifying to watch come through. The day was beyond hot and muggy, like breathing through a wet towel. The sky was looking ominous off in the distance, and the radar couldn’t keep up. Since they were driving to meet me from Reading, I didn’t want them to have to come all the way here just to have the skies open up. So we texted during the day, and finally made the call to go for it. I knew that the light immediately following a summer thunderstorm was a dream, so storm or no storm, we’d make it work.

Our session WAS super humid and sweaty, and Paula and Chris didn’t even blink. And they were the ones in jeans and long-sleeves! I made them come to about four different spots…I was totally taking advantage of a kid-less session. I can usually convince kids to go to about two locations, and then I start getting evil side-eyes. So we traveled to a few favorite spots and chased the sunset, and I loved every second. Their wedding in May is going to be amazing! Thanks for putting up with me Paula and Chris, you guys are the best! Some of my faves are below.

I have slowly over the years built up a short list of favorite locations to take my clients. I always love their homes most, but meeting at other outdoor locations like parks is also a lot of fun. The kids have a chance to run around, we don’t have to worry about traffic, and I can almost always find new favorite spots. I have a very short list of places near my house that I know better than my own backyard (granted, we’ve only lived here for 6 months, but still). I know where the light is best at any time of day, and can steer us towards specific locations depending on my mood/the kids’ personalities/the parents’ overall visions for their session.

I met up with this adorable family last summer in the middle of the day. Typically mid-day sun isn’t the most ideal – it’s harsh and contrasty, and can be unflattering. But we met at a nearby park that I am super familiar with, so we were easily able to use that (hot!) sun to our advantage. The kids were so funny, I loved how they played together. They also showed me their best dance moves, which I can always appreciate. And it was a total coincidence that I chose the park where mom & dad were married! I had no idea when I suggested it, and they told me during our session – talk about fate! Scroll down for some of my favorites.

At home lifestyle sessions with my clients are some of my favorite things to photograph, I love seeing where my clients live, seeing what their design taste is like, and using their actual home to help create new memories for them. And when I’m heading to a client’s home who I *know* has fab design taste, it’s all the more exciting. I reunited with this favorite family of mine a year ago (gulp) to photograph their younger daughter’s 6 month photos. They probably look familiar to you if you’ve visited my blog before. I’ve photographed them many times over the years, and it’s always a joy to see everyone again! I went to their home north of Boston for our session. We played in mom and dad’s room, big sister Kendall’s room, and in little Colette’s room, and had a ball. The girls are getting so big, and I loved seeing them interact. Mom and dad were laid back as usual, and let the girls make the decisions on where we went around their home, and what we did (see: jumping on the bed; but only while I was there!). Kendall loved showing me all of her toys and where they displayed the photos I took of her as a baby. It was a fun morning, perfect distraction from all of the snow  and freezing weather that was just beyond their walls.

Some of my favorites from their in-home family session (slash six month photos for Colette) are below. Enjoy!

Ahhh! Ok, so everyone pretend it’s January 1, 2016. I’ve been trying to get my favorites up for forever now! I will be blogging all of these sessions over the winter as well, and I can’t wait to share them all with you. Now that we are settling in to our new home, I’ll finally have more time for blogging (and still unpacking!).

Last year was a whirlwind for me, and it’s been a treat to go back through all of your sessions to choose some favorites. I had such a fun year with you all (can I say y’all up here in MA?). I found some great new outdoor locations for my sessions, and I think 2015 was an amazing year light-wise. I met so many wonderful people, and got to see quite a few repeat clients again and catch up. Thank you all so SO much for your support, encouragement and belief in me, I wouldn’t be able to do this without all of you. I hope you love the memories we’ve created, and treasure them for years to come!

Have a look at some favorites from 2015 below, and stick around for the full blog posts. Happy New Year!

A little Christmas in August? Why not! I meant to blog this session ages ago, and now that I’ll be seeing this wonderful family again as their little girl turns one in a few months, I wanted to do it asap. ONE! I’ve been the world’s worst blogger this year, it’s official.

I tend to have a lot of at-home sessions in the winter. For obvious reasons. Winter is typically my busy time for newborns, but I usually have a few other family sessions too. I don’t find too many people are dying to get outside in below zero temps and 18 feet of snow! (Yes, I’m exaggerating on the snow, but it sure felt like that last winter!)

I met up with the sweet K family back in December at their home. Their brand new daughter Eve was *the* sweetest little girl, and a great sleeper. Another bonus to newborn sessions is that weather typically isn’t a factor – perfect for us this day, as it was pouring and freezing out. So we turned up the heat in Eve’s nursery and in her parents’ room, and had an adorably cozy session. Make sure you check out Eve’s fun travel-themed nursery details, I loved them. A few of my favorites are below!
