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.

Meghan+Matthew | Engagement Session | Chelmsford MA

We are excited for Meghan and Matt’s wedding this weekend, taking place in our college stomping grounds (where Andrew and I met), Salem MA.  I met up with Meghan and Matt last week to do a fun take on an engagement session.  We met at the town hall in Chelmsford when they were picking up their marriage license.  It was of course a super chilly day, within a week of mild weather.  We took advantage of the great light in the stairwell at town hall and then they bravely posed outside for a few shots.  I kept telling them, since it is so chilly today, it means we’ll have better wedding on your wedding day!  It looks like that will be the case with less then a week till their wedding (but you can never tell how quickly the weather can change in New England).

Enjoy some of our favorites from their session!
