I absolutely adore this family! Super sweet and adorable kids, very cool parents. We had a great time in the park talking about typical kid stuff like....boogers. Enjoy this sampling from our portrait session in an unexpected location.
Molly Kate and her parents joined me at a local park for an afternoon portrait session. I absolutely love how well her funny little personality came through in these portraits.
Just before Baby O arrived and filled Amanda's life with much more joy, I was able to capture a few sweet maternity portraits at her home and a local beach. Shortly after, I was welcomed back to meet their new cutie and capture her newborn portraits.
From my family to yours! Wishing you a happy holiday season!
Stephanie + Brandon were married on a spectacular fall day at the Kelley Chapel located behind the Old Yarmouth Inn on Cape Cod. The chapel provided the perfect setting for their intimate celebration with close family and friends. After exchanging vows we took advantage of the chapel grounds for portraits with guests. A short walk away, the party continued in a bright private room lined with windows. Once the flower girl opened the dance floor, family and friends dined and danced the night away. Congratulations to Stephanie + Brandon! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!

I love working with the families in this neighborhood! I'm already looking forward to next year!
The last set of images from this fall's private mini sessions on the cranberry bog:
This post features a portion of the mini sessions I offered to a local neighborhood. These families live in a new development that was built around cranberry bogs. This year I chose to explore the many options around those bogs to create a beautiful fall backdrop.
I had the pleasure of working with so many awesome families this fall. From mini sessions on a cranberry bog to portrait sessions at a private farm (complete with goats!!) I was able to capture some adorable kids and the parents who love them.
Below is part one of three separate blog posts highlighting all of the 2015 fall family portraits.
This past summer, Jon proposed to Tiffany at their favorite beach, The Spit. They selected the same location for their engagement session. One especially warm October afternoon, we trekked out over the boardwalk and through the marsh grass to the beach. They will be married next June, overlooking the The Spit.
Erica + David were married on August 7th at The Lighthouse Inn in West Dennis. They had perfect weather for their seaside ceremony surrounded by close friends and family. Their floral arrangements were created by Flowers by Mary in Orleans and the boutonnieres were purchased on Etsy.
A few images from Erica + David's special day...
It seemed fitting that Tom suggested Powder Point Bridge and Duxbury Beach for their engagement session after hearing how he met Stefanie. Tom grew up in Massachusetts and Powder Point Bridge was a favorite fishing spot for him and his dad. While living in Colorado, Stefanie and Tom found each other through a dating website with ties to the ocean and fishing (which shall remain nameless since they refuse to pay for the wedding!) ; )
Stefanie and Tom are one of those couples that obviously have a blast together and I can't wait for their July 2016 wedding at Ocean Edge Resort!
Laura + Matt are energetic, spirited and head-over-heels in love with each other. They were all smiles and laughter during their small ceremony at Laura's family vacation home. We selected a lovely location at the back of the property, under the shade of a giant tree with the marsh grass, roses and river as their backdrop. After the ceremony, the three of us spent some time alone, capturing candids and portraits of the newlyweds in a place where Laura spent many of her childhood summers. We then ventured out on scenic back roads through South Yarmouth and Harwich to the Chatham Bars Inn for their brunch reception and portraits on the grounds and private beach.
I am so incredibly happy to have been a part of Laura + Matt's day. I wish them a lifetime of happiness & love. I hope that we cross paths again on their next family vacation to Cape Cod.
Recently, Amanda asked if I would be able to capture a new headshot for her. She explained that her current headshot on her website was a selfie! I actually had to go back and look. Of course I agreed and we ended up with great afternoon light to showcase her makeup artistry in her own portraits.

On a quiet Sunday morning, I wandered the streets of Boston's North End with Steph + Brandon. We found some deserted alleyways, a favorite pastry shop and the perfect perch overlooking the harbor. All provided a perfect backdrop for their engagement photos. I'm looking forward to seeing what's in store for their autumn Cape Cod wedding.
