|If you can make sunset work, that's fantastic! however, sometimes it doesn't happen exactly as we plan but we head out to the beach anyway. This time, we were sitting next to some very dark clouds, some far off rain, and a less then ideal sunset. The good news? we had the entire beach to OURSELVES! It couldn't have worked out any better!
I met Rachael, Graham, Juniper, and their handsome pup, Franklin at Hammonasset Beach State Park. They were adventurous enough to drive from Boston to one of my favorite beaches for their session. I still can't get over how incredible it all was.
This is definitely not the time of year to have the beach to yourself, but we did and it was perfect. It was as if we put a ginormous sand box in front of Juniper and said "now, go play". She was in her glory running around.
Graham and Rachael, you are amazing parents and Juniper is so lucky to have you! Thank you for letting me help document this part of your story together. Your story, and the album we created, are everything :)
|The best part of this engagement session was EVERYTHING! I can't tell you how much I loved hanging out with, and photographing, Alex and Dylan! They chose Cotton Hollow Preserve in Glastonbury, CT for their session. This is a favorite and very meaningful place for both of them and since they spend so much time there, trail running and biking, it was a great opportunity for me to capture them at a slower and more romantic pace. From trees, to rocks, to the peaceful sound of the running water, it was ideal.
Alex and Dylan will be married this September, and I am SO SO psyched to get another crack at them with my camera! haha! They are two of the kindest and coolest people around, and any chance I get to hang out with them, I'll take!
Alex and Dylan, you are stuck with me as a friend for life. I'll see you in September! xoxo
|I still can't believe I had the honor to photograph this wedding. I have known Mike since he was a little kid, and now, here he is, all grown up and married to the beautiful Deanna. This wedding was extra special to me and I want to thank my trusty side kick for the day, Stephen, for being his awesome self once again! The day was insanely HOT, so we took advantage of the beauty (and the AC) for formal photos inside the Church. The ceremony took place in St. Theresa Church right around the corner from where Deanna grew up and attended mass. What a beautiful place!
Once we all made our way up to the reception at The Candlewood Inn, we were able to stay cool inside with amazing entertainment by the one and only John Saville ! John always gets a packed dance floor.
As soon as the sun started to set, Mike and Deanna were up for some photos outside. Yay! Since we were on beautiful Candlewood Lake, I was hoping for photos outside. Thank you both for being so cooperative and SO GORGEOUS to photograph!
Mike and Deanna, thank you again for choosing me to photograph your wedding day. It meant the world to me. I wish you both a joy filled life together! You two are the coolest :) xoxoxoxo
Head down under the last photo for a slideshow of the wedding day. Enjoy!
|Well, now I know - energetic kids and street art are a GREAT mix! From wall to wall to wall, Molly, Ethan, and I made our way down one of the streets in SoHo finding exciting art spaces to photograph in front of. Street art and graffiti make a fantastic back drop and this sister and brother duo enhanced the coolness factor. We were looking for a love wall for Molly, but to our disappointment, someone had recently painted over it so we scoped out new places that worked perfectly. Having a passion for art, Ethan fit right into the Art Is My Healing wall. Molly looked awesome in front of everything we found!
For someone who is found photographing at the beach so much, I found these graffiti walls to be a fantastically colorful step outside my norm. Thank you to Molly, Ethan, and especially their mom, Jennifer, for introducing me to such a great location. What a blast!
I can't wait for the next time!
