At Home Lifestyle Newborn Session | Annabel

I first had the opportunity to photograph Elissa and Scott for their Estate at Moraine Farm wedding. It was an absolutely joy to work with this sweet and generous couple so I was equally delighted to be asked to photograph the arrival of their sweet baby girl Annabel.

Boston Newborn Photos, At Home

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!!

The Best of Portraits 2017

Welcome to 2018!! One of my favorite ways to start the new year is to reflect on the year past and gather together my favorite images from the last 12 months. I'm reminded again of how much I love this "job", being invited into my clients' lives and documenting the precious milestones of life. (You can view the Best of 2016 here.) Pulling together my favorite images of the year is no easy task -- how can I choose? Each image feels so dear to me. I remember exactly where I was and what was happening in that moment. Joyful, quiet, intimate, happy, reflective, emotive, connected moments. Every time I clicked the shutter I have the opportunity to capture these moments in time for my clients. It feels so dear indeed. 

To kick of the Best of Series I'm sharing some of my favorite portrait images of 2017!! I was happy this year to include film into nearly all my portrait sessions which was a creative add for me. My clients seemed to love that and I thoroughly enjoyed stretching my skill in film. I've got a long way to go, but I'm proud of how it tied together, nearly seamlessly, with my digital work!! 

So let's get to the images shall we?! I was pleased to be invited back into the lives of my dear past wedding clients as they expanded their families this year... how lovely to see these lovely families growing!! Here's to 2017 and celebrating the big and small moments of life!!

New England At Home Maternity Session

It seems just like yesterday we were celebrating with Rick and Stephanie for their Fourth of July wedding (you can see all the pretty here). And in just a few short weeks they'll be welcoming their first baby into the world, starting a new adventure together as a family of three.

This past March we spent a rainy spring morning at Rick and Stephanie's home (in the same place where I photographed Steph as she got ready for her wedding day!) to photograph this special time in their life.

I never take for granted that couple's continue to invite me into their lives long after the wedding day. It's a joy to celebrate with them as their lives grow and change. Rick and Stephanie thank you for asking me to capture this time as you wait for your little one to arrive!!

At Home Family Session in Boston's South End

Diana and Ankur welcomed their darling baby girl Olivia into the world earlier this year. Being the Holidays and the start of a new year just around the corner, they wanted to celebrate their family of three with a portrait session in their home. 

On a chilly December afternoon we snuggled up in Olivia's nursery, a beautiful ode to all things pink, grey and cream. Olivia bounced in her crib, snuggled in her father's arms and giggled at the silly sounds Mom would make to get her to smile. It was lovely time and I feel so thankful to have had the opportunity to meet and photograph this beautiful family. 

At home sessions are some of my favorite to photograph. Clean, bring space where my clients can feel comfortable and relaxed. They are a mix of lifestyle and posed portraiture. But most important they focus on the deep connection my clients have to each other. And when I can capture that on my camera -- well that's the good stuff. 

Thank you Diana & Ankur for welcoming me to your home!! Gosh those baby cheeks, they are the best!! Enjoy some of my favorite images!!

Fall Inspired Maternity Session

Paul & Emma are expecting their first child this Christmas and I was delighted to photograph their maternity session amongst the beautiful foliage earlier this fall. Paul and Emma are past DZP clients (view their wedding & engagement session), so being able to help them celebrate this incredible time of life is a huge honor. This down to earth couple are taking this new adventure in stride and cannot wait to welcome a soccer playing baby boy into this world ;)!! Until then, they are soaking up this time together, eagerly anticipating the arrival of their son. On a unseasonably warm fall day we met at Minute Man National Historical Park and explored the open fields that encompass this beautiful place. 

Emma and Paul, I am beyond thrilled for you both and this new adventure you are embarking on together!! Enjoy my favorites from your beautiful maternity session!!

Fall Anniversary Session at Willowdale Estate

Emily & Dan chose to celebrate their belated first anniversary with an anniversary session at Willowdale Estate on Boston's North Shore. I loved having the opportunity to re-connect with this sweet couple who tied the knot last summer. We roamed the beautiful grounds, enjoyed the glorious fall weather and reminisced about their beautiful wedding day on the South Shore (how was that over a year ago?!)

Emily & Dan have such great style -- a cozy outfit to cuddle up in and a tailored dressed up look to celebrate in style!

I'm always thrilled to be asked to photograph past clients. Being able to be a part of their lives, to celebrate the milestones of marriage through the art of photography, is something I am incredibly grateful for. 

Thank you Emily & Dan for asking me to help you celebrate your first anniversary!! Enjoy some of my favorite images!!

A Portrait Special Just For You!

Can you believe that there is only two weeks left in 2011? Where has this year gone?! I could swear to you that April was just last month, but then you'd probably think I was crazy. Each month pasted faster than the next and at times I felt like I was just spinning as the year marched forward! It's been such a wonderful year that at times I wished time would move into slow motion, so that I could truly enjoy each moment. But despite my best attempts a new year is upon us and I'm definitely looking forward to what it will bring! Part of that excitement includes an announcement on all Life Captured sessions. Life Captured sessions are what I call all portrait sessions, as my goal is to capture your life and who you are in a relaxed, natural and real way! From family portraits to head shots to maternity portraits to just everyday sessions, I want to photograph your life! I had the priviledge of working with some great families and people this past year and I had so much fun working on these sessions that I wanted to do even more this year! And I wanted to give you the opportunity to get in on the fun with a limited time discount on on all sessions!

Life Captured sessions are regularly priced at $350 but for a limited time I am offering a special rate on these sessions for ... drum roll please ... $250 (excluding sales tax)! That's a $100 savings! Each session includes a 1 hour at a location of your choosing (up to 45 minutes from Boston) and also includes your high resolution images digital images. Each Life Captured session will be hosted in an online gallery which you can share with friends and family and can also purchase prints directly from.

I'm so excited to offer this special to you but you have to hurry! There are only 10 slots available at this discounted rate and once they are gone, they are gone! Now is a great time to book your Spring or Summer session at this special rate! Heck, if you're feeling adventurous why not book a session for this winter?! All Life Captured sessions must be booked by January 20, when this special ends.

Here's to a New Year! And while we might not be able to slow down time, we can have the images that capture our life in moments!
