Brooklyn Maternity Session in the Heart of Cobble Hill

This past weekend the Hubs and I jumped in the car and headed down to Brooklyn to visit with our dear friends who are expecting their second baby later this summer. It was a bright and beautiful weekend and Brooklyn felt alive with people out and about enjoying the parks and gorgeous weather. Dave and I revel in any opportunity to visit Courtney & Dave in New York and I was honored to be asked to photograph such a special time in their lives. 

Courtney chose Cobble Hill, a charming area of Brooklyn filled with leafy green trees, brownstones and families milling about. We managed to sneak away from the crowds and found the perfect side street for their session. Every time we have the opportunity to visit Brooklyn I'm always struck but how small this big borough feels. Filled with neighborhood charm, families, coffee shops, people sitting on this stoops, kids riding bikes, it's know wonder why these two just love it so!

A Boston Public Garden Engagement Session

I just love these two brave souls who got up before the sun for their early morning engagement session in the Public Gardens. Living in the Boston area they wanted their engagement session to be a reflection of quintessential Boston. But anyone who knows Boston knows that this part of town is filled with tourists and locals alike later into the day. So how do you go about making the Public Gardens look empty? Begin your session at 6am ;).

I love Erica & Mark's go with the flow attitude -- they are a confident couple who are comfortable in their own skin and have a deep connection to each other. Best friends. What a joy to photograph!!

Later this year they will be tying the knot in a quintessential Bostonian wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza (sensing a theme here?) I cannot wait to photograph this sweet couple again in a place that is near and dear to their hearts!!

An Engagement Session in Boston's North End

I couldn't have been more excited to receive an email from Matt & Erika following their recent engagement this past spring. I've known Matt now for several years having had the opportunity to photograph his sister's wedding in 2012 and his brother's wedding last fall. Being able to be a part of the Tice family's life events has been a highlight as a photographer and so I was delighted to be asked by Erika & Matt to photograph their engagement!!

Matt & Erika picked the North End, where they live, as the backdrop for their engagement session. I arrived to their adorable apartment where they relaxed with champagne and cannolis, a North End staple. After enjoying some sweets, we meandered through the North End's maze of streets visiting some of Matt & Erika's favorite spots in this quaint and famous Boston neighborhood. They even managed to gobble down some slices of gooey pizza on a side alley street. If that doesn't scream North End I don't know what does!!

A Wedding In The Heart of Boston's Theatre District

Grace & Sam met while studying at MIT -- they are an incredibly smart couple. This was made clearly evident during their reception as their Best Man and Matron of Honor shared countless stories of how Grace & Sam have used their intelligence to serve others. I think that's what I love most about these two. Both very smart but also incredibly generous. Sam and Grace spend much of their free time teaching, encouraging and lifting others up -- leading by example and using their knowledge to help others.

Lovers of board games and bubble tea they chose to fill their wedding day with details that reflected their unique personalities and interests as a couple. Friends and family gathered from Boston and across the globe to celebrate with them -- the church and reception were packed with loved ones. Grace and Sam walked down the aisle to raucous cheers and HOORAYS, you could feel how loved this sweet couple is.

A Family Session at Duxbury Beach

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting Kate & James at Duxbury Beach, a place where they spend lots of time together as a family. They are lucky to live close by enough for impromtu trips after work or weekend days spent with toes in the sand. Not only did it make for a beautiful setting but it was a place they feel deeply connected too. 

With the sun beginning to rise on a June morning I met with Kate, James their their five little ones for a casual and relaxed family session on the beach. I wanted their session to feel comfortable, approachable and reflect how much love this family shares together. If there was one word I walked away with from this session, it would be love. An abundance of love.

Signature Album : Fairmont Copley Plaza Wedding

Angelica and Matthew's wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza last fall was easily one of my favorite weddings to date. Both hailing from different parts of the country, their Boston wedding was a destination celebration of sorts. Family and loved ones flew in from around the country, and world, to celebrate with them!! Boston shined throughout the wedding day from their downtown ceremony to the Duck Boats they hired to take guests around the city. 

Angelica & Matthew chose the Signature Album, our most popular album, for their first family heirloom. Beautifully bound in leather, their album was thoughtfully designed to showcase their elegant Boston wedding in the heart of the city. The black leather cover was the perfect touch!!

At Home Newborn and Family Session in Newbury

I've known Jessie and Will since high school, high school sweet hearts -- the couple everyone loved to love. Jessie was fiery and extroverted, Will, a quiet and calming force. Together they were the perfect pair and it was beautiful to watch as their love grew and matured through high school and college, engagement and marriage.

Soon their love multiplied -- First came Audrey, then Oliver then Ellis and now sweet Evelyn. What an honor it has been to bare witness to Will and Jessie's love story, from high school sweethearts to wonderful and joy filled parents. 

Thank you Jessie and Will for asking me to document such a special time in your life as you welcomed your newest addition to the family. I hope these images bring you much joy and serve as a reminder of the beautiful love you share together as a family!
