I’m catching up on my fall Wellesley College mini session blogging and today I’m sharing this wonderful family who had lots of personality and style! My favorite part of the session was Miss E’s amazing fur coat!
Choosing a wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions you can make for your wedding (other than who you marry) and it can be stressful and overwhelming.
The photography industry is not formally regulated and there are no degrees or licenses needed to operate a business. There's also no set standard on pricing so packages can vary widely between photographers.
Christine and Kyle came up from Florida to elope in Boston and despite the cold we had the best time exploring all of the quintessential Boston spots! We started at Fan Pier in the Seaport, made a quick stop at the Boston Public Garden, and then headed to Acorn St on Beacon Hill. Afterwards we went to Fanueil Hall and Quincy Market where the giant Christmas tree and twinkly lights were the perfect backdrop.
Hooray, you’re engaged!! You have a sparkly new ring on your finger, you’re practicing saying “my fiance” instead of “my boyfriend/girlfriend” and you’re getting a flood of happy messages from family & friends.
And then the questions begin: When’s the big day? Where are you getting married? What are your colors?
Cue the frantic googling/Pinteresting/spreadsheets.
Anna and Maisom were married on October 20th, 2018 in a morning ceremony at the Wellesley College Chapel. They were easily the most laid back couple I’ve ever met. Their family and friends flew in from every corner of the earth and it was clear how loved these two are by everyone. After a beautiful ceremony (where Maisom cried through most of it!)
Thank you to all my clients/friends for another amazing year! 2018 was the best year yet and it’s all thanks to the wonderful people I got to work with. I’ve rounded up my favorite images from the year, there were lots of Wellesley College photo shoots, a few elopements in Boston, new babies, and photos of my own family!
Nadja & Pooja looked like royalty for their Wellesley College engagement session! They were so fun to work with and even practiced their posing beforehand! Nadja told me she wanted luxurious photos that captured their love.
Darian is a fellow photographer from Georgia and wanted some photos of herself and her husband Chris while they were visiting Boston. These Georgians were absolute troopers in the crazy wind we had that day and I loved sharing my beautiful city with them.
Megan and Gabe were married at Pleasant Valley Country Club in Sutton, MA on October 19, 2018. They had a beautiful outdoor ceremony in the garden in front of the country club at sunset and were surrounded by the nicest family and friends.
The Souza family met me at Wellesley College for their fall family photo session last week. The leaves are really starting to turn and the sun provided beautiful back-light through the trees. I loved mom and C’s matching boots! The kids were sweet and snugly and Chloe the dog was a great sport for photos!
The Santo family was impeccably dressed for their family photo session at Wellesley College! All 3 kids did so well and I loved the girls’ matching headbands. Leah’s yellow scarf added the perfect pop of fall color! I found a new spot to shoot where the light shines just right through the trees. There’s nothing I love more than a beautiful back lit image!
I’ve photographed the Schwartz family many times over the past few years and seeing them is always a highlight of the season! It’s been so much fun watching Miss Zoey grow and become a little person. She was the happiest little baby and now she’s a sweet and smiley 2 year old.
I met this fun family of 5 kids (yes 5) at the Grist Mill in Sudbury, MA to take their fall family photos and their enthusiasm was contagious! They range in age from 2-15 so you can imagine the mix of personalities!
If you caught my previous blog post about Style and Select you know how excited I am about family photo outfit creation. I put together a few style boards with inspiration for your next session! In order to use the service you do need an access code and your photographer has to be a paying member of the service.
I recently discovered the wonderful service that is Style & Select. It’s a website that allows you to coordinate outfits for family photos. You simply fill out the questionnaire about your family and it suggests clothing for you. You can mix and match and see how everything looks together. Best of all you can email your selections to yourself (your photographer also gets a copy) and purchase items right through the site.
My cousin, Amy, always picks out the best locations so I was excited when she suggested Lynch Park in Beverly, MA for their family photo session. The north shore park is right on the water with two beaches and a beautiful flower garden! The boys got to run all over the park and I loved spending some time with them.
The 3rd annual free photos for public safety families at Goddard Park in East Greenwich, RI was a great success! Kate Taylor of Polar Square Designs organizes the event and it remains my favorite event of the year. It's so wonderful to give these families photos of their officer in uniform and the kids are so fun fun to work with.
Here are some favorites from Finn's one year photo session at Wellesley College! They were referred to me by my cousin and we had so much fun wandering the Wellesley campus. Finn was such a sweetie and I love his light red hair and bright blue eyes!
It's always an honor when another photographer asks me to take photos for them! Michal is also a family photographer and we had so much fun at Arnold Arboretum. She knew exactly where to find good light and her kids were naturals in front of the camera!
I finally got to take photos at Wellesley College for my friend Andrea! She and her husband, Frank, are so in love with their little boy. He was awesome for his photos and let me carry him back to the car!
Sean & Lynsey had an intimate wedding at the Boston Public Garden. Their closest family watched as they read their handwritten vows to each other in front of the bridge. Lynsey's aunt officiated and it was clear how much she loves them both. After a few portraits in the park we went to Acorn Street in Beacon Hill. Even though it was still cold the flower boxes were full of beautiful blooms. Their families were so sweet and happy, they made for a perfect day!
My all time favorite roommate from college is have a baby! Naturally we had to return to UCONN to shoot their pregnancy announcement photos. It had just snowed the night before and Jonathan the school mascot looked especially handsome. We had to get a few shots in front of Gampel Pavilion, home of the incredible women & men's basketball team.
Happy proposal season! If it seems like everyone on Facebook is getting engaged that's because we are currently in prime proposal season. The joy & festivities of the holidays puts guys in the mood to get down on one knee. If you're thinking the time is right to ask the question, here are my top 7 tips for getting a yes.
I cannot believe I've never shot in Beacon Hill before, Acorn Street is the perfect place for Christmas photos! I love the old historic parts of Boston, and it's close to the Boston Public Garden too. Marcus & Katie nailed their Christmas mini session!
Another wonderful family photography session at Wellesley College! The photos of Miss O hugging her parents are my favorite <3 I love how versatile Wellesley College is for photo sessions, there are so many different locations and backdrops I can’t wait to try out!
