Hogan Family Maternity Session | Bedford, NH

Hogan Family Maternity Session | Bedford, NH

Friends, I really thought I was going to get this blog post published before this little baby arrived.. but I didn’t… He’s here! (and he was a little early, so really I would have had this published before his due date!)

I just love this family so much! They just so happen to live a few houses down from us and their little guy, Liam is around the same age as Ethan and Henry. He is the sweetest boy and he is going to be the BEST BIG BROTHER!

We had our session at Joppa Hill Farm in Bedford, NH. I take Ethan and Henry there a lot to see the animals and walk the trails there. They love it! It is a really beautiful farm where I had always thought that it would be a great location for a photography session but I never had the opportunity to have a session there.. Until I talked to Shannon and she mentioned thats where she was hoping to have their family maternity session. I was so honored she asked me to capture this season of life for them, but I was also nervous, you see, Shannon is a photographer too! I had so much fun getting to capture these moments for them just before the baby arrived!

Shannon, Matt and Liam, it’s crazy to think we have known you guys for just 2 years but it feels like it’s been a lot longer! I just love that you guys are just down the street and are always up for a social distance hello from the door step! We can not wait until we can plan a day to spend with you guys where we do not need to say ” 6 ft. apart” and “keep your distance” to the kids. Thank you so much for trusting me with taking your photos! It means a lot and I am so happy to hear you love them! Here are just a few of my favorites from our session! I can not wait to finally get to hold your littlest one and take more photos of you guys! xoxoxo

Upland Sportsman Club Pavilion Wedding | Jessica and Tommy

Upland Sportsman Club Pavilion Wedding | Jessica and Tommy

I walked into Jessica’s childhood home  where the girls were getting ready and I could hear the buzz of the bridesmaids. They were in their matching Bride Tribe Tanks with Leggings- their hair and makeup done to perfection. I hugged Jessica and was so excited to see her! Moments after I was introduced to all of her sweet bridesmaids and I just knew that it was going to be a good day!! I already felt so loved and welcomed. The dresses were all together, hung up on the front window, her details were nicely on a table close by so I could start to tell their story through images. The day was overcast, which many times is “perfect for photos!” The light worked in our favor this day and I shot almost all details outside of their home, on the walkway leading into the house.

Jessica and Tommy shared an EPIC first look! The reaction from Tommy was amazing and melted everyone’s hearts who was there to see it! They are so much fun to be around, I remember laughing the whole time during their engagement session, and this day was just as that! So much laughter to go around along with all that love! As Jess was walking up behind Tommy for their first look, he got out his phone as if he was receiving a phone call! It was really funny and totally something that he would do! Once he turned around he threw the phone and his face was priceless! Jessica has the best laugh and every photo of them is just complete happiness!

This was such a special day! Guests gathered in the backyard  of her family home and witnessed Jess and Tommy say “I Do”. Tears were shed, laughter filled the air, they shared a few epic kisses and then it was time for dancing! The day was so much fun and flew by!

Jessica and Tommy, Thank you so much for choosing me to be your photographer! I loved getting to know you both and it was so nice to get to see you again and celebrate on your wedding day! I watched as your wedding count down filled social media pages and I too was counting down! Lisa and I had so much fun! It was really hard to choose favorites from your wedding day! I hope you look back at these and remember how amazing your day was for years to come! Congratulations to you both! xoxo

The bouquets were really special and something I have never seen before- the flowers were all made of wood! 

Jessica’s first look with dad had everyone ( including myself ) need a tissue!!! It was really special!

I had to share the sequence of photos from their first look! Just check out how their story unfolds in these…. 

She asked him to turn around so she could see all of him…. so they both did a little ballet turn. So cute!

Allison & Daniel Engagement Session | Duxbury, MA

Allison & Daniel Engagement Session | Duxbury, MA

 

You guys! I am back from a mini trip to NJ with my family and I am catching up a bit on #allthethings! Allison and Daniel’s engagement session at Duxbury Beach was nothing short of perfect! The day was just beautiful to be outside and and enjoy the weather and each others company. From the start of our session I knew I was going to just love them, and I was so right! It felt like I already knew them even though this was the first time I’ve met them! They listened to my silly idea’s and had no problem with any pose I gave them! I even had them get into the ocean for a few photos…which was FREEZING by the way!

I asked them to tell me all about their engagement and the story was actually really funny! It made for amazing laughs and a bit of confusion when I learned that Dan left the ring in the passenger pocket in his car for almost TWO WEEKS! He said that was the only place Allison wouldn’t have found it, and he was right!

I can not wait to celebrate with them at the end of this month for Allison’s best friends wedding day and then again for their wedding day! I love the Pavilion at Pinehills where they will be getting married this November!

Allison and Daniel, Thank you for sending the day with me for your engagement session! I had so much fun and I hope you guys did too! I hope Dan had a happy birthday, the next day! ( I can’t believe that didn’t come up in conversation!) Looking forward to November!!! Here are just a few favorites from your engagement session! xoxo

 

 

A Brookside Country Club Wedding | Cape Cod, MA

A Brookside Country Club Wedding | Cape Cod, MA

I had been anticipating this wedding for quite some time! Jocelyn and Angel were engaged a few days before halloween and they contacted me right away for engagement photos! The excitement was all around and I knew I couldn’t wait to celebrate their day with them!

First, we had their engagement session when there was still some snow on the ground toward the end of March. You can check out their gorgeous engagement session here. Getting to know them during this session was so much fun. The way they look at each other makes my heart melt and they were up for any crazy ideas I had!

Angel’s family traveled from Mexico and it was just the sweetest to see the emotions that were expressed this day! So many happy tears, so much LOVE!

Jocelyn and Angel, thank you for choosing me to be apart of your day! I loved capturing every little detail and I loved getting to meet all your closest family and friends! You guys are just so in love, I am so happy you found each other! Hearing your vows and the story of how you met might have been one of my favorite parts of the day! Angel, your first reaction when you saw Jocelyn walking toward you was so amazing to see, I had tears in my eyes! Wishing you both so much happiness, forever!
