At the very beginning of the year I had the incredible opportunity to attend the first ever Halide workshop hosted by friend and fellow New England wedding film photographer Beth LaDuca. I have admired her work for years and have worked with her several times for our own family photos (check out some of our beautiful maternity images here!!)Read More

Beautiful Nour was born earlier this spring and on a warm April afternoon I had the pleasure of capturing her newborn session just days after entering the world. Her parents Younes & Alyssa were married two short years ago, you can view their gorgeous wedding here. It was a joy to be invited back into their lives to help them document and savor this time of life together.
Sweet Nour, what a delight you are to your Mom and Dad!! My favorite moment of your session was when you pooped while being held by Dad which resulted in the funniest reaction. I love watching as new parents get to know their little one, dirty diapers and all :)Read More
I was honored to be asked by Rachel and her family to capture their little one earlier this spring. How sweet it was to be invited into their home to document this incredible time of life. Big brother excitedly bounced from room to room occasionally stopping to check in on his brand new sister who stayed happily wrapped up in Mom’s arms.
It is magical to capture these first few days of life for a little one and to watch as Mom and Dad get to know the newest member of the family. I’m so grateful for a job that allows me this unique perspective and the joy it is to capture this season of life for a family.Read More
One of the greatest joys I have had this year as a photographer has been being invited to document the new stages of life for previous clients. While I have always photographed newborn & family photography, this year I have found a renewed joy and purpose in this work and it was been wonderful to capture these seasons of life for some amazing families!!
Andy & Liz were married four years ago (you can view their gorgeous Turner Hill wedding here) and just recently welcomed their beautiful baby girl into the world. I had the honor of visiting them at home and capturing them together, in all the newness and joy that they were experience as first time parents.Read More
As Mamas, how often do we get the chance to be in pictures with our kids? Ofter we’re the ones chasing, directing and gathering, trying to get our family into the best frame possible. Working behind the camera, rarely present in the image. The Motherhood Sessions have been created to change all that - to give Mamas in any stage the opportunity to be PRESENT, celebrated and documented with the ones they love.

This wedding season was probably one of the most rainiest I have ever photographed. Every weekend it seemed the forecast called for rain. When YQ & John’s wedding day approached, the last wedding of my season, I had fingers crossed that we wouldn’t see a drop of rain. And guess what happened? IT RAINED!! Thankfully the weather gave us just enough breaks throughout the day to capture some of their images outside, including an epic First Look on the rooftop of the Mandarin Oriental hotel. Take note of how blustery it was. Their poor wedding party was such troopers, braving the cold, windy day to take advantage of the foliage in the Boston Public Gardens.Read More
ISLA IS ONE!!! I can hardly believe I am writing this!! In fact she’s almost 13 months…. This year has been nuts - in the best and craziest ways. Since this will be the last post in my Baby’s First Year series, I thought I’d take this opportunity to share more in depth some of the details about Isla’s first year.Read More
Rachael & Matt chose the beautiful Crane Estate for their wedding earlier this fall. As the sun slowly set on the Grande Allée, surrounded by their family and friends, they said their vows. Guests sipped on cocktails and hot cider on the back porch as the candles lit the evening. Their bridal party were a vision in creams, blues and grays. It was their own version of a perfect fairytale…Read More

On a beautiful fall Saturday, Kaitlyn prepared for her wedding day in her childhood home. Accompanied by her parents and sister, it was a quiet and relaxed setting - pictures of Doug and Kaitlyn filled the home along with many precious memories.

Yup, it happened… I missed sharing a month in Isla’s First Year. Navigating two kids, running a business and surviving the fall (the craziest time of year for wedding vendors) it was bound to happen. So I thought I’ll just combine the two and give you a two month recap!!Read More
I not so secretly love sunrise engagement sessions - there is just something magical about watching the sun rise above the horizon as soft, golden light blankets the earth. The air is quiet, the world is still, in short it is a peaceful way to start the day!! I was delighted that Hayley & James loved the idea of a sunrise session for their beach engagement. So on a warm summer morning we met at Good Harbor and enjoyed exploring the near empty beach together.

From the moment Liz & Andy reached out asking if I was available to photograph their wedding day, I knew that it was going to be special. When we met this past spring for their engagement session, it confirmed to me just how amazing these two are. Full of life, Liz & Andy are charismatic people who instantly make you feel at ease and welcomed in their presence. They are two people who have found their match in each other, a perfect fit.
With deep family ties to the Falmouth area, Liz and Andy transformed a family home into their dream wedding venue. They held a casual beach ceremony for close family and friends then partied the night away under the tent in the backyard. Liz thought of every detail, personalizing the experience for their guests. It was a day full of meaning, love and LOTS of dancing!! Enjoy some of my favorites!!Read More
Laney & Austin love being near the water, it’s their happy place. When it came to planning their engagement session we knew that it had to be a location on the water. One of my favorite places, both personally and as a photographer, is Crane Beach in Ipswich - a beautiful beach made of soft white sand and gorgeous green dunes. The stunning locale spoke to their ocean loving hearts and was the perfect backdrop of their summer engagement. Enjoy some of my favorites!!Read More
Emily & Ricky’s wedding day started with white, puffy clouds but by the time we arrived to their First Look things started to change. The sky turned a dark grey/blue and lightning cracked across the sky off in the distance. In between rain drops and claps of thunder Emily & Ricky braved the elements with smiles and laughter — enjoying every minute they spent together with their wedding party. By the time portraits were over, the skies opened up and a deluge of rain really began…
But despite the weather they were determined to embrace the day. For example, Emily really had wanted pictures down by the water front but the rain continued to pour down. Instead of giving up, Emily gladly picked up her dress, grabbed an umbrella and sipped on their signature cocktail waterside for portraits. Their guests enjoyed cocktail hour under the tent and then when the rain finally let up, they headed out onto the patio for one of the most incredible sunsets we have ever seen at a wedding. Truly, it’s not what happens on your wedding day - but the attitude you have that matters most.
It was a joy to celebrate alongside Emily & Ricky and I am thrilled to be sharing my favorite images from their incredible day — truly it was a honor to be a part of their celebration!!Read More
Engaged on the Charles River, Abby & Joe wanted their engagement session to reflect the city that they love and joy they share together. On a beautiful early summer morning we visited some of their favorite spots around downtown, laughed together and enjoyed the near empty city streets. Sunrise sessions are some of my faves, there’s just something unique about experiencing the beginning of the day together and capturing the first light of the day with my couples!! And who could beat the smiles of these two? What a joy to capture their love, enjoy some of my favorites!!Read More
Overlooking the Mansion on Turner Hill, Maggie got ready at her parents’ home, a place filled with meaning and memories for the Bride. White puffy clouds filled the bright summer sky and the heat of the July warmed the air. It was a quintessential New England summer day, just what Maggie & Jack envisioned for their wedding (albeit maybe not the humidity)!! With a quick ride down the hill, Maggie and Jack where ready to start their celebration. With their ceremony held in the garden and their reception under the tent in the courtyard, it was a perfect event from start to finish. Enjoy some of my favorites!!Read More
