Where is summer? Seriously… where did it go?!? How are we a few days away from September? I know I am not the only one that thinks the summer flew by! I am working on lots and lots of family sessions currently ( shooting and editing) and I am trying catching up on my blogging! I have a ton of blogs lined up in drafts to be published asap and I am so excited to share my newest work with you all.
The last few weeks were so busy over here, and the last few months my bed time has not been earlier than 1am!! I am forever grateful for my families, couples and fans for believing in me and my business and I am thrilled that many families have been coming back to me for years to capture their stories. It makes me so happy and I love that I get to see everyone again and again, as well as I get to watch their babies grow! How awesome is that?!
This wonderful family contacted me 2 years ago when they were visiting Cape Cod for their summer family vacation. At that time, they had 2 little ones- (Indy and Lulu) and this year, I got to meet their littlest one, Posey! All of the kids were just so cute and so much fun to play around with on the beach! I just loved how they warmed up to me right away and I was able to capture so many silly moments of them, letting their personalities shine! Their session was held on the same beach as it was the first time I met them, right outside of their rental home. How amazing to have this view for a full week while on vacation! I know I could get used to that!!
Brandon, Audrey, Indy, Lulu and Posey, I LOVED getting to see you again and meeting Posey! They are all so adorable and it is no doubt how loved they all are! It was really cool to look back at our session from 2017, you can check that session out here, and see the differences from then to now! Thank you for inviting me back to Cape Cod for your family vacation and for trusting me to capture these memories for you. Can not wait to watch them grow!
It was a FULL weekend for me thats for sure! I had back to back weddings on Friday and Saturday and I had the best time at both! Sunday I was in Boston for an engagement session and Monday I was back in MA for a newborn lifestyle session! All of these events I am so excited to share with you! You see, I might be exhausted, but I love my job and I get so excited when I have new work to share with you!
Rachel and Joel were such a pleasure to be around! They had this calming presence about them the whole day and it instantly made the day feel like pure perfection. Now, I usually meet my couples before their wedding day during an engagement session, however, Rachel and Joel were living in Cleveland at the time they booked with me ( a little over 2 years ago!) so we did not get to meet each other before their wedding day. Let me tell you, I was SO excited to meet them! Not having any clue of who they are before getting to the wedding day can be a little intimidating. When I am with my couples I just don’t stop talking. I prompt them and I tell them exactly what I need them to do. Were Rachel and Joel going to like my personality?? All of these feelings of the unknown quickly washed away as soon as I met them! Both had smiles from ear to ear and they were so happy to do anything I needed them to do. They were wonderful to work with and I am so honored they chose me to be their wedding photographer!
I had a lot of favorite moments from their wedding day. Getting to spend time with the wedding party on the beach after the ceremony was so much fun! We were all laughing and having a great time, and I even let them all go with enough time to join in cocktail hour. I loved getting to spend a ton of time with Rachel and Joel for their beach portraits as well as sun set portraits, just wait until to see those photos! Another moment that I loved was when Rachel’s grandfather gave the blessing. He is the absolute cutest thing and I just wanted to bring him home with me! His speech was the sweetest and he even got up on the dance floor a few times and busted out some great moves! Okay, one more! I loved Joel’s reaction when seeing Rachel for the first time walking down the aisle. He had the biggest smile on his face and he gave her a little wave! I thought it was just the sweetest gesture!! They both cried while reading their vows which was also, soooo sweet! Gah!
Rachel and Joel, Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart for trusting us on your wedding day. The day was absolutely perfect and we couldn’t be any more excited for you both! Rachel you looked absolutely stunning and Joel looked so handsome! It was so great getting to meet your sweet friends and family. I hope you are enjoying your first few days of Mr. & Mrs. and you love getting to look back on such a magical wedding day. xoxo
