North Shore Newborn Photography | At Home Newborn Session

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 :)

North Shore Family Photography | At Home Newborn Session

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.

Massachusetts Newborn Photographer | At Home Newborn Session

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.

Cozy At Home Newborn Session on Film

Today is a classic New England snow day!! With the snow coming in we're hunkered down with cookies baked, the fireplace roaring and hot cocoa ready to go. It's also the perfect day to share Pat & Liz's cozy and cuddly family session from earlier this January. You may remember these two from their beautiful summer wedding at Curtis farm almost five years ago!! It hard to believe that!! I still remember their incredible day and I feel so lucky to have been invited to photograph the next phase of their lives together!!

If you haven't guessed, New England is cold during the winter months so when it came time for locations for a newborn session, home seemed like the best choice. Liz and Pat's home is beautifully decorated with thoughtful touches throughout, especially the nursery. It was the perfect backdrop!! We spent a lovely morning together, reminiscing and admiring their sweet, adorable baby boy. 

Pat and Liz are the perfect clients -- they trusted me with whatever suggestions I had to make this session meaningful. I was able to stretch my creative muscles shooting part of the session on film. That combination of freedom of creativity and a trusting relationship with my clients sets my artistic soul ablaze. Thank you Pat & Liz, enjoy some of my favorite images!!

The Best of 2016 : Portraits

Yesterday I kicked off the Best of 2016 series with my favorite floral designs of the year. Today I'm continuing the series with my favorite portrait images of 2016!! My portrait work has slowly evolved over the years as past clients have begun to grow their families and celebrate anniversaries. What started as something I did on the side of weddings, has developed into an integral part of my business. 

Having the opportunity to be invited into the homes and lives of my clients to capture the big and small moments of life is an incredible honor and I deeply value the relationships that have been cultivated as a result. My portrait work has become something incredibly meaningful to me and I hope it has brought great joy to the clients who have trusted me to capture their lives. 

Enjoy some of my favorite portrait images of 2016!!

At Home Newborn Session on Boston's North Shore

As their family has grown, I've been honored to photograph the Policano Family from first baby to now their second. It's been a joy to watch as they've become parents to two darling baby girls. Courtney is one of my oldest and dearest friends -- being able to document this time in life for their family has given me immense joy!!

Courtney is a dream client who trusts my vision (even when it involves overly large floral crowns for babies ;)). I love the creative freedom that brings - I am so appreciative as their photographer to be trusted in that way to document such an important time in their life. 

Earlier this month, we transformed our home into a natural light studio (our house has amazing light!) to photograph their newest addition, Seneca!! Her big sister Emmeline did such a great job sitting for the camera and Seneca stayed asleep just long enough for us to place her in a bed of florals!! Enjoy some of my favorite images from their at home newborn session on Boston's North Shore!!

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!
