Sweet little L | Newborn Session

L slept like a champ his entire session, I think Auntie Kate was helping me out! We go way back with this family. We shot Jen+Ian’s wedding in 2011, our dear friend Kate was Jen’s Maid of Honor and obviously couldn’t shoot their wedding. Kate would have shot this session, but Kate passed away last year in an awful car accident that broke all our hearts. I was happy to take over in Kate’s absence, and brought along some of her props (that Andrew & I inherited).  I snuggled this little guy extra tightly for Auntie Kate.

Below are some of my favorites from the session. lachlan_0001 lachlan_0002 lachlan_0003 lachlan_0004lachlan_0005 lachlan_0006 lachlan_0007 lachlan_0008 lachlan_0009 lachlan_0010 lachlan_0011 lachlan_0012 lachlan_0013 lachlan_0014 lachlan_0015 lachlan_0016 lachlan_0017 lachlan_0018 lachlan_0019 lachlan_0020 lachlan_0021 lachlan_0022 lachlan_0023

Walsh Family | Lifestyle Newborn Session

I spent some time recently with one of my favorite families to photograph!  Erin+Matt were one of our first maternity sessions and then since then I’ve shot their first son’s newborn sessions & many family sessions.  This past Fall I shot the maternity session and a couple weeks ago it was time to meet their second sweet little boy.  Erin loves interior design so I knew their house would be lovely to shoot in, it did not disappoint.

Little tidbit that I just loved, their oldest son loves Star Wars, so throughout the shoot him and I were talking all about it.  I had a Jabba the Hutt action figure help “hold” my camera for a couple of the family shots ;)

Enjoy some of my favorites from their lifestyle newborn/family session.

Meghan+Matthew | Salem Waterfront Hotel | Wedding

We spent a sunny day in March with this sweet couple in Salem, MA (Where Andrew and I met when we were both at Salem State).  We love the chance to shoot in Salem as there are so many lovely venues in the area.  This wedding the ceremony was at the Immaculate Conception Church with the reception just a quick walk at the Salem Waterfront Hotel.  Below are some of our favorite images from the day!

meg+matt_0001 It was a lovely day in March, not too chilly, so the girls walked from the hotel to the church.  meg+matt_0002 meg+matt_0003 While waiting for the ceremony to start one of the flower girls (who was Meghan’s niece) was a little pouty.  I thought it was a cute moment.  The bride was telling her that she couldn’t wait for her wedding day so she could pay her back and be pouty.  meg+matt_0004 meg+matt_0061meg+matt_0005meg+matt_0006 meg+matt_0007meg+matt_0008I absolutely love this image from the ceremony.  Immaculate Conception is such a pretty church, very light and airy.

meg+matt_0088Thank you so much for letting us capture your wedding day!  It was a day filled with love and you are such a sweet couple.  We wish you many years of happiness together.
