|We did it again!
Let me sum it up by saying - Nantucket + bubbles + Amy, Brett, and Tate = another incredible photo session!
From the moment I met Tate years ago, I knew his interest in learning was off the charts! This boy is smart! Another reason I love seeing him every year - I always learn something. He's curious and that makes me curious. So this time I brought bubbles. Great big giant bubbles! the ones that create amazing shapes and colors. Watching Tate make so many great bubbles thrilled me. The bubble session was a hit!
Since our first few sessions involved beachy landscapes with sand, waves, and lots of jumping in the water, we took a different path this time. We met at the UMass Boston Field Station and explored our way out to the tip with it's gorgeous view of the water. Spectacular!
Amy, Brett, and Tate - you did it again! I can't wait to see the next cool place you think up for this year! xoxo

|Dreaming of Nantucket's beaches on this snowy day.
As I'm watching the snow fall outside my window, my mind is wandering back to the warm sand and sunshine I experienced when I was photographing Koren, Jacob, and Charlotte at Steps Beach on Nantucket. What a contrast to today's weather!
I am so appreciative that I have had the opportunity to photograph this wonderful family over the years in such a magnificent place. Steps Beach has become our tradition. One that I most definitely look forward to each year.
Watching Charlotte laughing and running on the sand makes me so happy. Each year that she grows becomes more of a test for Jacob as he swings her around. It's so important to capture these times because swinging and piggy backs become much harder with each passing year. Jacob is always up for the challenge though :)
Koren, Jacob, and Charlotte I can't thank you enough for letting me photograph you in this amazing location. I can't wait for the next one! xoxo
|I knew as soon as I walked into their home and saw their beautiful smiles, I was in for a treat.
Roland, Ronnie, Olivia, and their little dog Lilly, were so kind, so gorgeous, and just so lovely together. We had their photo session in their backyard surrounded by hydrangeas and lush green coloring. It was perfect.
With a great mix of sophisticated and silly, we were off to a good start! It was such a joy to photograph this family in their own backyard. They were instantly comfortable and at ease in front of my camera. They definitely knew how to have fun and their affection for each other came through in every photo.
In the busy-ness of our daily lives, it's easy to forget the importance of quietly being together, uninterrupted, having fun, all while transforming those moments into forever memories.
Thank you Ronnie, Roland, and Olivia for inviting me along to capture these memories for you!

|Who has seen Wadsworth Falls right after a BIG storm?! well, I have, and it's wild!
I had the opportunity to photograph Marianne, Martin, Catherine, Fiona, and Bridget at Wadsworth Falls when the water was stronger than I'd ever seen it. It was crazy and beautiful all at the same time and I couldn't have asked for a more fun and adventurous family as this one.
I still can't believe we had just met. It was like hanging out with old friends who happened to like to dance in the water. It was all I could do to stop myself from jumping in with them. I will keep the silliest and most fun photos for the family but trust me, it was incredible.
Martin and Marianne, thank you for sharing your family with me. It was an honor to be in your presence and be able to give you these memories that will last you a lifetime.

|I had the pleasure of photographing Kristen, Josh, and their three sons, Ben, Oliver, and Trevor at one of my favorite places - Hammonasset State Park in Madison. I always feel like I'm going home when I get to do a session there. It's just so beautiful, even on an overcast day like we had.
Since Ben is set to graduate High School this year, this was an extra special session. We were capturing more than just family photos, we were celebrating a family being together, without any distractions. I'm such a sentimental softy when it comes to family being present together.
Even though teen-age boys can be somewhat shy at first, these three brothers rose to the occasion, got silly and had fun! That's what it's all about.
Thank you Kristen and Josh for sharing your family with me. I know that your album will be treasured for years to come!
