Family sessions have been in full swing this season and I am so excited to share this beautiful little family with you! I have been taking family photos for these guys for the past 4 years! It is so amazing to watch them grow each year and now, they have a little bundle of love, Mary.
Big Brother Benjamin was a baby when we met. He and Ethan are very close in age, so Jen and I became close friends as our boys were growing up together. I love that we are still friends, our kids are growing up together and I get to capture their family milestones each year.
Tony, Jen, Benjamin, Mary, Jay and Echo- You guys are the sweetest! Thank you for trusting me year after year to document your family photos for you. I love seeing your Christmas cards with images from our session on them. I am wondering what ones you will choose this year, because as you will see below, I had a hard time choosing a favorite! :- ) Can’t wait to see you all again soon! xoxo
My family and I lived in Plymouth for 5 years before moving to NH. We loved our town, we loved our first home, we loved our street! We made many friends with our neighbors while we were there and its so nice to still continue to talk to them since moving away. This wonderful family lived across the street from us! They had a little girl, Lilly who is the same age as Henry… maybe a few months older than he is, but for the most part, when we lived there, she was a baby baby! My kiddos would get so excited whenever we saw them outside and they loved getting throw the ball to their dog, Chester. We would always look for Chester on our walks, and we had to invest in a “chuck it” for Porter because that is what Chester uses when he plays fetch…something Ethan continues to remember!
I was so excited when Patricia contacted me to capture their family photos! They chose a beautiful location in Kingston, which I did not even know was there- along the Jones River! Chester was able to be off the leash, which being a puppy owner myself now, they are so brave to have him off the leash! Maybe someday I can trust Porter to come back each time, like this guys did. 🙂
Lilly was so shy at first but then she warmed up to me and her personality came out! He’s a doll and I loved getting to see this silly side of her! Tommy, Patricia, Lilly and Chester, it was so nice to see you all again and I am so honored you contacted me to spend time with you and take your photos! I hope you love these as much as I do!! Thanks so showing me this place too! I can not wait to get back there and bring Porter! I know he would love it!
I have had a little break from blogging over the last couple weeks which I have to say, feels like its been an entire year! Between family sessions and weddings, I have been non stop with LOTS and LOTS of late nights editing. I have so many blog drafts almost ready to be published and I do not want to keep those blogs in cue anymore! I am so excited to finally feature this amazing family! I have been taking their photos since I started my business in 2012! It went from just a couple, to maternity, to family, to extended family and I am forever grateful for them all! We had their session in Wakefield, MA again this year and this time the littlest lady, Lilly is here! It is so fun to get to see these families grow and I love getting to be apart of savoring these moments for them!
Here is the start of my 2019 family sessions!! Get ready for more awesomeness! 🙂
One of my favorite moments I get to experience at a wedding is watching the bride and groom really realize how much their life has just changed.When this happens, there are tears and hugs and a few minutes of just being in awe of what just happened. This moment can come at any time throughout the wedding day. For Kevin and Gina, their moments happened at different times during the day. Kevin had tears in his eyes as Gina walked down the aisle with her dad. Gina’s moment was after they recessed down the aisle and embraced outside of the ceremony. Her tears of joy were sweet enough to make anyone watching get emotional. They were just SO happy. It was the sweetest thing to see and I couldn’t be any happier for them!
I know I mention the weather a lot but honestly, I can’t believe what we experienced this day, It was probably one of the most beautiful days of the entire summer. It felt like October and not the end of August!! It was amazing! Not only was the weather beautiful, this entire wedding day was stunning! It really was so perfect and the smiles on their faces throughout the entire day let everyone know that this was their best day ever! During their ceremony, the sun came in and out of the clouds but the way that the wedding party was standing on a hill allowed me to capture this absolutely gorgeous image from their ceremony. The sun position, clouds and just where I happened to be standing, with my 35mm lens on, the settings I used, and the final edit produced this amazing photo that I am thinking about printing on a canvas for myself to hang in my office!
The Pavilion at Granite Links Golf Club is absolutely beautiful. With views overlooking the Boston Skyline, and the most beautiful sun set, I loved getting to be there again this year! I loved the simplicity of their decor that tied their day together so nicely. Just wait until you see their reception decor with the view of Boston. It was just stunning and the sun set all together just made their ending to a perfect day, even more perfect…. if that can even happen!
Kevin and Gina had their dog Charley join them for a few moments on their wedding day, just after they shared in their first look. The love that these two have for their fur baby is just the cutest. They were so excited to see her and I loved that she was included in their wedding day for photos, again in Kevin’s vows and then a few more times during their toasts at the reception. It was so sweet! I loved that I got to see Charley again from their engagement session. The photos of the moments with her are so special.
It was so nice that they were able to include their siblings on this day as their officiant, brother of the bride, did an amazing job sharing about their relationship and their love for one another. They are the sweetest duo. Lisa and I felt so honored that we were the ones who had the opportunity to capture their day for their family and friends to remember forever!! Enjoy some of my favorite images and as always…get ready for a lot of photos in this post….
