Alyssa & Craig Engagement Session | Portsmouth, NH

Alyssa & Craig Engagement Session | Portsmouth, NH

Happy Wedding Wednesday! I am bringing back this Alyssa and Craig’s engagement session to today’s wedding Wednesday not only for engagement inspiration but also, these two were to be married this coming Saturday but with all that is going on in the world right now, their wedding day is now in June. I am still so excited for them and I am looking forward to giving them both hugs once this is all over! Enjoy their engagement session photos for some E-sesh inspo!

** FROM THEIR PREVIOUS BLOG**

Alyssa and Craig had their engagement session this past fall in downtown Portsmouth, NH. I have only been to this town twice before their session and I have to say I am so glad they chose here!  I just loved that we had so many different locations to choose from, and the light was just so perfect! The weather was starting to get a little chilly, but it felt good to walk around without jackets, chatting the whole time and laughing! We had so much fun and I am so excited to celebrate the Eve of Henry’s birthday with them this April!

Aiden 6 Month Milestone Session | Quincy, MA

Aiden 6 Month Milestone Session | Quincy, MA

I can not believe it has been 6 months since I last saw this family for Aiden’s newborn session!  It is 100% true what they say, the days are long but the years are short. Before I knew it, February was approaching and I knew we needed to get this 6 month photo session in before their little features were not so little anymore! A few weeks ago I went back to their house and we had our session together capturing those candid lifestyle moments and I have to say, I just love sessions like this! This was so laid back, mom Breann was amazing handling her big kid, little kid and fur baby. She’s a natural! I loved catching up with her about life and hearing all of the little milestones Aiden has been achieving!

He was such a good baby during our session, fully idolizing his brother and not minding at all when his dog would walk on him. He is just starting to sit up but mom said he still needs assistance. We attempted to see if he could sit up on his own toward the end of our session and sure enough, HE DID IT! He mastered sitting up and I was there to see it! I was so proud and so excited I got to be there to capture those moments for mom and dad!

I am so excited to see them again for Aiden’s 1st Birthday session! Breann, TJ, Owen and Aiden, thank you so much, again for opening up your home to me to capture this first year of Aiden with you! He is going to have so many new milestones happening within the next few months and when I see you all again, I am so excited to see the difference just 6 more months make! Owen, thanks for keeping me on my toes and always laughing! You are such a great big brother! It is so clear that Aiden looks up to you so much already! Here are just a few of my favorites from out session together! xo.

The Lund Family | HAPPY NEW YEAR!

The Lund Family | HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Kicking off 2020 with the Lund Family! You guys this was my last family session of 2019 and I am thrilled I was able to spend it with these guys! I have worked with Jordan from Jordecor a few times over the years, and if you do not already follow her, you need to! She is an influencer on social media platforms and teaches all things decor! She shares real life stuff and her creative heart is amazing!!! I just love everything that she creates!

Their session was in time for Christmas photos, and they had a bonus where there was still some snow on the ground! With a few Christmas card perfect photos, they also added on a little 2020 surprise toward the end of our session! Being as creative as Jordan is, not only did they look amazing with their coordinated outfits, she went out and got a few things to celebrate the new year! The best is that they do not need to stress about getting their cards out in time for Christmas, they can send out Happy New Year cards instead! I loved this idea and I love how these all came out. I loved getting to spend some time with the whole family and I am excited to see how their cards came out for this year!

Jordan, Ben, Griffin and Autumn, Thanks for much for braving the cold to get a few family portraits from 2019! I am so honored you chose me to capture your family photos and I hope you love them as much as I do! Happy New Year! xo.

Alyssa & Craig Engagement Session | Portsmouth, NH

I hope you all had the Merriest Christmas EVER! It felt good to stay off the computer for a few days and be present with my family. We had a wonderful time doing all kinds of Christmas traditions and I have to just say, that Ethan and Henry just make the holiday even more special! As much as it felt good to take some time to myself, it also feels good to be back, getting some time to be on the computer doing all the things behind the scenes and not just behind the camera!

Sean + Brittney Wedding Day | The Sea Crest Beach Hotel Wedding VENUE

Sean + Brittney Wedding Day | The Sea Crest Beach Hotel Wedding VENUE

This day started with a super big hug, lots of squeals, tears and “oh my goodness I can not believe how fast that year went!” It seems like we were just in Boston for Sean and Brittney’s engagement session at the Boston Seaport. I spent their engagement session getting to know them and hearing about how they met and how crazy it was that they both lived in the same town but never knew each other until meeting on a mission trip through church in 2012. Planning a wedding while deployed is hard work but they did it, and my goodness it was BEAUTIFUL! Brittney shared a guest blog post for me a few months ago, giving tips for how to plan a wedding when deployed and one of you is on the other side of the world. You can see that helpful blog post HERE!

Brittney’s bridesmaids and family were so incredibly sweet. I honestly felt so undeserving of the compliments they gave us throughout the day. They were so kind, inclusive and encouraging….  just like Brittney.  It’s no wonder they are all such great friends and close family members! The reactions her bridesmaids had when they saw her walk out in her dress was just the sweetest thing and one of my favorite moments from the day. During Brittney dancing with her dad, her mom and sisters stood watching all together, crying, smiling, laughing and then they all were on the dance floor together for the end of the song. It was so special, and you can just feel the love in the room all night.

Brittney and Sean’s wedding ended my 2019 season! It was a chilly day with some wind coming off of the ocean but the sun was shining and they decided they wanted as many photos as we could have outside, which I was so excited about! The venue, The Sea Crest is so beautiful and the way the light was hitting the ocean, I was happy they wanted to be outside. You can not tell how cold they were in their portraits, and from when I use to teach color guard, and it was cold, I kept telling them “you’re on the beach, its a sunny day….” and I wasn’t kidding…

This wedding post is the LAST ONE of 2019! I have a few other blogs planned but as for weddings, I couldn’t think of a more perfect couple to end with than these two. Sean and Brittney, I love you both! Your day was a dream and it was such a privilege to be the ones there to capture it!!  Thank you for allowing us to be there!!! I can’t wait to share my favorites! Enjoy this visual story of your amazing fall beach wedding day!! xoxo

 

can we just talk about this reaction! I can not even handle it! So sweet!
