Sessions like these just MELT MY SOUL! This family was so much fun to be around, I did not want our session to end! The kids, Benjamin and Sophie were the sweetest things who were so happy to have their photos taken! Little Benjamin had some great ideas on where to stand and what shots to get. He was a great helper! Sophie had just celebrated her 3rd birthday the day before our session so I was thrilled to capture her 3 year old photos for mom and dad. She was not wanting to be in the photos alone, but she was so happy to have mom and dad with her for most of her birthday photos!
Now. if you know me, you guys all know I love love love details! Hannah asked me to capture something very important to her during our session that made me tear up. You see, she is wearing 3 rings on her finger. Each ring represents her babies. The baby that is due in October is their rainbow baby but she wears these rings because even though one baby is not physically with her, they are with her in spirit and she always wants to have them near. The rings have Benjamin and Sophie’s name on them, a due date from baby #3 and once this little bundle arrives, she will add on another ring. Isn’t this the sweetest thing?! I just love it so much and I am so happy she told me about this so that I could capture these precious memories for her.
So, I bet you wanna know what they are having…. I do too! But! We will have to wait! Hannah and Robert decided that since they found out the gender for their first 2 kiddos, they want to be surprised for this new baby. When they told me this, as much as I want to know, I appreciated this decision as this is what we did for Ethan and Henry! The surprise of finding out the gender the day you meet them is such a gift and THE BEST surprise! I for sure thought that Henry was a girl and when they said he was a boy I was shocked but still so amazing and so happy. Whoever this little one is, I pray that he or she is healthy and safe and that they give mom an easy and “pain free” (if it can be pain free) delivery.
Hannah, Robert, Benjamin and Sophie, thank you so much for spending the night with me, making me laugh and caputre all these amazing moments of your family before your littlest is here. It is so amazing to see the love you all have for one another and when you look at these photos, you will see just that coming from everyone. So. Much. Love! I am so excited to meet your newest baby and I hope that you can treasure these next few weeks together as a family of 4 before you are a family of 5! I can not wait to see you all again! Here are some of my favorites from our session together. I hope you love these as much as I do! xoxo.
Last week I woke up so excited to finally get to meet Leila and Chris! When I got downstairs to pour myself a cup of coffee, it seemed so dark in the house! I looked outside and sure enough it was dark! I checked the weather and as soon as I did, it started to downpour! I was so confused. I’ve been checking the weather for this day since it was in the 10 day forecast! So, I checked again. It said rain! I texted Leila and we both decided to keep the session as is, and continued to check the weather throughout the day. As it got closer to the time we planned to meet the weather was looking good. We met at Crane Beach in Ipswich, MA and could not believe how amazing it all was!
We had so many different kinds of lighting happening during our session together, it just made my heart so happy! These two not only looked like models but the location and different views of the ocean plus the amazing light we had, had me screeching with excitement though out our time together! These guys were up for a long walk on the beach to start in the perfect spot with not too many people. I loved getting to know them and hearing all the things they have planned so far for their Granite Links Wedding next August!
Chris proposed this past July 3rd on Cape Cod after taking a long walk on the beach. It was so sweet to hear them talk about the night they got engaged and the celebration with family they had that night! I am looking forward to meeting all of them! Just as they were telling me about their proposal, I noticed a rainbow in the sky behind them! I had them take a minute to look at how amazing it was! I could not believe it! It was just so beautiful and it 100% added on to how amazing the night was! As soon as our session ended and we got in the car, the skies opened up and there was a downpour! If you can’t already tell I am still in shock and so excited about this session and the light/weather we had! Just check out their photos and you can probably feel the excitement through them!
Leila and Chris, THANK YOU! You guys were so much fun and so awesome for walking far, getting your feet wet and mastering all the poses I taught you! I am so excited to see you guys again for your wedding day! Until then, enjoy these images together and good luck choosing one for your Save the Date! I had way too many favorites and I have a feeling you might too! xoxo
Each year I get to see so many returning faces that I just LOVE seeing but what made this session so special to me was that I got to see these guys 3 times this year! Aiden was born August 8, 2019. I captured his newborn session at their home where my goodness he was just the sweetest and his big brother was adorable with so much energy! His personalty was so fun to photograph! I saw them again for Aiden’s 6 month session back at their home where he was JUST learning to sit up.
This session was their one year milestone session with “baby’ Aiden! We met at the beach this time and it was so much fun to see how much the kids grew in the last 6 months! Aiden is starting to stand on his own and take steps. He was not so sure about the feel of the water but he did like to play a bit in the sand. His smile is so contagious and I just love all of this little features! Big Brother Owen always succeeds in making me laugh. These boys are just so much fun and I loved getting to spend time with them! Mom and Dad, you did it! A year with two! That deserves a celebration!
Thank you so much for trusting me to capture your first year with Aiden. I am so thankful for you all and I just love watching them grow! Here are some of my favorite photos from our session together! Happy 1st Birthday Aiden!! xoxoxo
I just love when I get to explore different places with my wonderful couples! Callie and John chose 2 destinations for their engagement session and I am so excited to share with you the magic that happened! Callie and John were going to have their engagement session a few weeks ago but the weather was not looking good. Even if it cleared up for their session, she was really hoping to have a beautiful sun set and not the over cast clouds. So, we decided to move their session and boy oh boy, I know I am excited, and they are excited that we did!
The weather for their engagement session could not have been any more perfect! It felt like a fall day here in New England and the sun did exactly what I was hoping it would! We started our session at World’s End in Hingham, MA. We found the most perfect tree that had the sun directly behind it which is where we started the session! The magic in these photos with the way the sun is glowing through the trees makes me so happy!
Callie and John were so amazing and up for anything I suggested! They were naturals in front of the camera and I just loved the way they look at each other! I am so excited to photograph their wedding day next year! Callie and John, Thank you so much for a fun night! You guys were such troopers climbing the rocks at the beach (in heels Callie!) Thank you thank you thank you!! I have so many favorites from our session together, grab a coffee and check them out!! xoxo
Are you a Bride who is planning your wedding and are feeling stressed, anxious, and overwhelmed by all the things? What if I told you that there is a resource out there that helps you have a direct focus on Brides navigating the Coronavirus currently and working to help them feel good again while planning their wedding. You will learn how to transform those feelings into calmness, peace, and absolute joy through your planning and most importantly on your wedding day!
Wedding Day Mindset Coach is a new resource, created by Cassidy Thompson, she is there for you through your journey and she can not wait to meet you! After spending the past 11 years in the wedding industry running @thompsonphotographygroup and @stonewallestate she has decided to help all the planning couples with their wedding Day Mindset.
When I talked to Cassidy about Wedding Day Mindset, she said ” I’ve seen so many times over the years when brides couldn’t get out of their head and into their hearts to enjoy their wedding day. After so much time and investment going into your wedding day, the last thing you want is to miss out on the magic of YOUR wedding day because of something “going wrong” or not happening exactly as planned etc. So I am here to help guide you through all the things, help you connect with the peace and calmness within you, open up to new perspectives about life and the wedding planning process including your fiancé, and your family etc. Because let’s face it, I get it, it can be really hard and emotional at times. Weddings definitely bring out heightened emotions in everyone involved. However that does not mean that you should not enjoy every second of your wedding day. You deserve it!”
