Sweet Lydia graced this beautiful family of four early this month and made this beauty a big sister! The last time I saw this adorable family was when Emme, now 2, was a newborn. So happy to be invited back into their home to capture all the snuggles saved up for their new baby girl. Congratulations Beth & Kyle!
Another fellow photographer contacted me to shoot her beautiful family. Always the best compliment... they drove 2 hours to meet me and they were filled with love and light. I just sat back and watched how they interacted, captured those smiles and hugs and I think the result is pretty special. Here's to your story... your family... and your happily ever after <3
Thank you for choosing me to tell a little piece of your story.
I met this family when they were welcoming their sweet baby boy, Grey home.
He was just weeks old and his two older sisters were completely smitten. I sort of fell in love with these five right away. They were just SO natural and in the moment-- making my job easy as pie.
I was fortunate enough to capture a mama & me session for Krista and her babies back in February and loved everything about it. It was real, raw, natural and so much fun. She shared with me that they'd be moving to Texas in the summer and they wanted to plan one more family session, this time at the beach.
Man, have I been lucky to have captured some really beautiful moments in this family's life. They left Massachusetts with memories of the beach. With some salt in their hair and sand in their toes and they were off to a new adventure in their new home state of Texas. I wish them all the best, and I will forever be grateful that they came back to me two more times after that first session <3
Cheers to clients that leave a special place in your heart <3
Family sessions are really simple when families disregard the fact that they're being photographed and live IN the moment. I promise if you engage with your family, run, laugh, be silly and have fun, you'll get me at my best. And me at my best is when your gallery is FILLED with images like these <3
Love this family and cannot thank them enough for trusting me and my process... perfectly imperfect is perfect in my book.
Some of my very favorite sessions are maternity. Especially for new parents... there's something about the excitement in their eyes and love they share together that will soon overflow to a little being they've created. These beautiful people are expecting their first baby just next month. They've kept the sex a surprise and I'm 100% certain it will be the best surprise of their life. Congratulations to Jill and Mike. I cannot wait to meet your sweet little love <3
Their first child, their first son, everything about this dynamic brought me back to those feelings I felt bringing home my first little boy. Man, there's nothing better. Diana absolutely killed it in the nursery, making this the most adorable and chic jungle themes I've ever seen. Can't get enough of this sweet session. Congratulations Diana and Nick! xo
My sweet friend had her beautiful baby girl back in April and watching her smitten in love with her baby girl for an hour was simply the best. Congratulations Kate and Tony! Your family is to die for and I'm blessed to know you.
I have been so behind in blogging and thought to myself, what better way to get back on the train then to share this sweet family? They welcomed their first son, Declan into their home just this past March. This little 6 week old session was the sweetest...
I was asked to witness this beautiful mama to be tell her husband that they will be expecting their first baby. I had a vision of my head of snuggles and warmth in the comfort of their home with a hand written letter to deliver to dad-to-be. When I tell you that this session came to life before my eyes, I mean every word of it. It was relaxed, real, raw and true and I am so excited to share it with you.
To these amazing parents-to-be, thank you for allowing me to capture this for you. I wish you both nothing but the best <3 xo
I think I need more three month sessions. Let me explain why. Their sweet smiles, their chub, their connection with their mama and dad, their fat thighs, their giggle, and their adorableness.
Lifestyle sessions with a 3-5 month baby is bliss. <3
Today I am sharing another sweet cake smash! Ohhhh, I fall in love with these sessions with each one I do! How could you not? Seeing a fresh 1 year old dive into a cake is simply the cutest! The best part about this one is we did it right on their families lakefront property, so this sweetheart rinsed off with a evening swim<3
We kept it really simple, stuck him in a vintage high chair and let him go to town. And the family shots afterwards... ah, I just love how they came out!

Over the weekend I had the pleasure to photograph this amazing family on their family beach! This family of four had me laughing and swooning over how well this brother and sister got along. They were so sweet and so fun to hang out with. AND THEIR DOG. Ah, I totally fell in love. I hope that this beautiful mama decks her walls with these images... everything looks even better in print<3

This month has been so wonderful, not only with my family but also professionally! I learned this month that I was accepted into the pro program at In Beauty & Chaos which is a fabulous forum and place where photographers can learn, grow, inspire and be inspired. This was such a huge goal of mine and I am so excited to have accomplished it! I'm hoping to do some fun things with it in the future<3
In addition to that great news we've just had so much fun this month. Lots of trips to Cape Cod, New Hampshire, the farm, backyard adventures and time with cousins! Here are some of my favorite highlights<3
Over the weekend I had my very first beach session in Falmouth! The weather was perfect. The sun was gorgeous and lucky me, I had the sweetest couple to photograph! I'm so excited to do more of these :)

My very best friend from college is expecting her first son in just a few weeks. Of course, so many emotions go through my head... how did we get so old and how do we have kids? is what comes to mind first...
but then I just think about how we clicked from day one and how she's one of the best women I know and how she's going to make such an incredible mother.
I can't wait to meet your sweet son. Most of all, I can't wait till you fall in love as hard as I now you're going to when you meet him<3
Enjoy these last few weeks carrying him close... xo
Oh this family... they welcomed their third son into the world just over a week ago and my GOSH is he a dream boat. Mom and I spoke and we talked about capturing just the candid, raw, unposed moments during the first days of his life. There's nothing I enjoy more than just freezing happy moments in time. This family is beautiful inside and out and I hope they look back on these images and feel nothing but joy and love<3
Congratulations to this amazing family of 5.
Maternity sessions are one of my favorite if not my ALL time favorite sessions to do. Why? So many reasons... pregnancy encompasses so much beauty, both inside and out. Lots of women are vulnerable during this time in their lives, and while vulnerable, they are the strongest they've ever been.
Being able to capture this beauty for women is beyond a treat as a mother, woman and photographer. I hope that the mamas-to-be that I work with look at these images when their babies are grown, look back and say, "I am beautiful."
Thanks for following our blog circle! If you came here from Crystal's blog then thanks!! If not, go check her out for sure! Her work is awesome and she's oh so talented.

Here's what I've been up to over the past month. A bunch of my favorites all in a blog post for you<3 Enjoy it... and when you're done be sure to go check out AnnMarie's blog post! I ALWAYS love her work. If you're not following her already- go, go go!
