Motherhood Sessions at The Tannery Loft | Erica

Erica from the talented floral team, Lilac and Lily joined us for the Motherhood Event hosted at the Tannery Loft early this spring. She had a specific image she hoped to create as part of her session with her two little girls. I knew immediately that this image would become the banner image of the Motherhood Sessions. I’m so thankful that Erica trusted me to capture her sweet family and the relationship she shares with each of her girls.

Motherhood Sessions at The Tannery Loft | Kristen

Earlier this spring I had the joy of capturing Kristen in her first few weeks of Motherhood as part of the Motherhood Sessions hosted at The Tannery Loft by Kadeema Rentals. It was such an honor to help Kristen celebrate this new season of her life and the relationship she shares with her little Charlie. Kristen wore a beautiful BHDLN gown that perfectly complimented the quiet and simple nature of her session. I’m so thankful Kristen trusted my vision in capturing Motherhood and for the opportunity to celebrate her new role as Mom.

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!!

Beverly At Home Newborn Session

When I saw Jes’ email pop up in my inbox I excitedly hoped it was to learn that she and Dave were expecting - and I was right!! Three years ago I had the joy of meeting Jes and Dave thanks to past clients Rob and Rachel when they invited me into their home to photograph the arrival of their son. Meeting clients for the very first time can sometimes be a little nerve wracking, especially if you haven’t had the chance to work with them before.

Crane Beach Family Portraits

Part of what I love most about this job I have as a photographer is the opportunity to follow along with families throughout the years. Being able to have the opportunity to reconnect with couples and families year after year brings so much joy to my heart. So when Diana contacted me to help celebrate her daugther's second birthday with a portrait session, I was thrilled. This little cute, Olivia, has grown up before my camera - from her adorable six month portrait session to her first birthday and now as a full blown toddler who loves to run and jump and play, it has been so fun to watch them grow together!!

On a beautiful summer evening we met at one of my favorite portrait locations, Crane Beach, for a relaxed session together. Olivia got to play in the sand, run with Daddy, snuggle up with Mom and just enjoy being together. Here are some of my faves!!

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!!

Maternity Portraits at Smith Barn at Brooksby Farm

The past few years has seen a boom in past DZP couples growing their families -- and I LOVE it!! It's such a privilege to be invited into such a special time in a couple's life and help them celebrate the milestone of a new baby with photography!! 

I was delighted when Molly emailed me earlier this year letting me know they were expecting (and due around the same time as me!) and that she wanted to celebrate the occasion with a portrait session. It feels like just yesterday we were celebrating Molly & Andrew's wedding day and here we were anticipating the arrival of their baby girl!! Congratulations you two, enjoy a few of my favorite images!!

It's hard to believe that it's been over two years since Jayme and Cory tied the knot at the beautiful Chatham Bars Inn. It was such an amazing celebration and remains one of my favorite wedding days to date!! I was thrilled when they contacted me earlier this year to let me know they were expecting a baby girl - I couldn't wait to capture them together as a family of three.

Earlier this fall I met Jayme and Cory at their beautiful home to photograph their newest addition. It was so nice to catch up and have this sweet couple in front of my camera again!! I'm so thankful for clients who trust me to capture their lives long after the wedding day!! What a joy to celebrate life's milestones with photography!!

Idyllic Fall Family Session at Wright Locke Farm

What can I say about this beautiful family?! I have had the joy of knowing Aubrey for many years now (how is that even possible?) and documenting her growing family year after year. After our session together this year, I went back and looked through the images we've taken together. It has been amazing to watch as her darling baby boy has grown into a sweet kiddo and as they welcomed their beautiful baby girl into the world. For this year's session we met at the idyllic Wright Locke Farm on a beautiful fall morning. We wandered the property as the kids explored to their hearts content. It was a joy to help them celebrate another year together with photography. I'm so grateful for the clients and families who value the importance photography and ask me to help them document the meaningful moments of life together!! Enjoy some of my faves!!

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!!

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!!

Wintry Maternity Session on Boston's North Shore

On a COLD wintry evening, the brave Kristen & Kyle agreed to trudge through freshly fallen snow -- Kristen wanted a winter wonderland type feel and I knew just the spot!! Located on Boston's North Shore but what felt like the middle of no where, my not so secret location was perfect. With hardly anyone in sight the snow was magical, the light was beautiful. I'm so grateful we had the opportunity to celebrate our dear friends and the new life they are eagerly awaiting to meet. Though it was frigid, Kyle & Kristen were troopers and we were able to create some beautiful images to share with their little one someday!!
