Mini Sessions available whenever!

We want to capture you & your families memories and we understand not everyone has the budget to do a full portrait session.  We’ve decided to offer the option of booking a mini session WHENEVER you want!  We typically schedule a full day of mini sessions at a designated location a few times a year.  We’ve had several inquires asking when we were going to do our spring mini sessions, but due to our schedules we have had a hard time finding day where we could schedule a full day of them.

Contact us to book your mini session now!  Weekends in April & May are mostly booked, but weekdays are definitely available.  Mini sessions are 30 minutes long and are shot on location at any location you want within the Greater Lowell Area.  Sessions booked outside of the Greater Lowell Area will incur a small travel fee.  If you aren’t sure where to have your session just ask us, we have lots of ideas for locations.

Sessions are $75, this covers the 30 minute session.  Prints and Products can be purchased a la carte after the session.  Contact us for more information on the products we offer & too book your session today!

Best of 2011 Engagements

Coming up with a best of post has been really tough.  Drew picked his faves and then I went through and selected my faves.  I think we had the intention of selecting just one photo from each engagement session, but then I realized I couldn’t do that (Drew thinks he could, but I argued that I didn’t want to eliminate some of the images).  So here are some of our fave couple shots from this past year!  Enjoy

The first few are from Jill+Victor’s engagement session in New Hampshire. We headed up to a bed and breakfast that Jill’s mom often likes to stay at.  Jill and Victor were married this past May at Flag Hill Winery (you’ll see more of them in our Best of Weddings!)
This next group of photos are from Steph+Chris’ engagement session at Amherst MA (these images are all from UMASS, but we also spent some time downtown).  This is my baby brother so it was really difficult to narrow the images down.  They will be getting married this coming May.  (Drew would like me to add in that this is his favorite image)
Next up we have Melanie+Dan’s engagement session in Lowell MA.  We loved shooting in this parking garage!  We’ll be shooting their wedding at the Danversport Yacht club this April.For this one we headed down to Fall River (where Drew grew up) for Megan & Alan’s session.  This park is tucked right along the edge of the river in Fall River (right near the battleship).  Megan & Alan haven’t sent a date yet, but we look forward to capturing their wedding day when it happens!Next up is Ashley & Derek’s engagement session at the beach in Hampton NH.  They have loved going up to hang out at the beach for many years so it seemed like a perfect location for their session.  It was overcast at first, but then this amazing sunset happened when the sun came below the cloud cover.  Ashley & Derek were married this past August at the Methuen Music Hall with the reception at the Granite Rose.  Megan & Marc will be getting married this March.  I actually realized that their entire session never hit the blog, so keep an eye out for their full session on the blog in the coming weeks!  We shot their session in Hopedale close to where they live.  Duncan their dog was the star of many of the images.  Megan and Marc will be getting married this March.Nicole & Greg had their session in Worcester.  They live down in Connecticut and were down with meeting us in Worcester for their session.  My sister use to live in Worcester so I am pretty familiar with the city.  We shot these at the train station right downtown.  Their wedding took place this September in Connecticut at the Webb Barn at the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum.  Here’s another wedding that I just realized hasn’t hit the blog yet :( Drew says I should blame having a 3 year old.
Finally these last two images are from some mini sessions we did for the Holidays.  You’ll be seeing more of the lovely people in this first image as we shoot Carla & John’s full engagement session sometime this spring or summer as well as after we shoot their wedding this coming October.We end with this image of Amanda & Chris and their adorable little dog Lily.  They haven’t set a date yet but we hope to be able to capture their special day when it happens!

 

Best Friend Session | Parlee Farms Tyngsboro

I had a fun time hanging out with these 3 beautiful young ladies back in the Fall.  It was a unseasonably warm day and felt more like summer.  The girls were great and worked it out despite the heat.  The session was a gift for Lext (the lovely Brunette in the middle of the first set of images) and she decided to bring along 2 of her best friends.  I think this is such a great idea for a tween/teen girl that you don’t know what to get for her.  Her Aunt and I went to high school together and she approached me with the idea.  It was such a fun session idea and I look forward to shooting more best friend sessions!  The girls wanted to bring some sort of fun Prop.  Lexi’s Aunt found these glasses while out shopping.  I thought they were perfect (obviously!)

Thanks for a great session Girls!  :) Amanda
