Hello

Jordan & Zach: Crane Beach Late Summer Engagement Session

arrow

Couples

Photos are one of the most important and tangible ways to preserve the sweetest moments of life. For many couples, the first photos together are taken sometime in college or the years that follow. They can eventually look back and say that they walked alongside each other for 50, 60, or even 70 years. But […]

Adrienne & Dan: Appleton Farms Engagement Session

Couples

Adrienne and Dan are the textbook definition of a storybook couple. Their Appleton Farms engagement session was sweet as can be. After a long heat wave, Ipswich graced us with a mild evening and the loveliest breeze, the earliest wisps of fall. We had the grounds to ourselves, perfect for dancing among the wildflowers and […]

Mary & Matt: North Shore Summer Engagement Session

Portraits

Mary and Matt’s North Shore Summer Engagement session was magical. While planning their session, Mary shared that she dreamt of a unique coastal location with tall grass and a pretty view. My mind immediately went to one of my favorite picnic date spots in Essex, Massachusetts. It is a perennial favorite of Dillon and I, […]

Portraits

Liz and Tim’s Crane Beach summer engagement session filled my heart right up to the brim. They exude the kind of warmth and joy that leaves you feeling so encouraged from the moment you meet them. I met Liz virtually earlier this year and loved her right away, but this was my first time meeting […]

Montgomery Family: New Hampshire Spring Family Session

arrow

Portraits

“My card is full!” I looked over at Tommy and Kaelyn mid-pose during their New Hampshire spring family session, “That has never happened before!” I added, reaching into my bag for a new memory card. In all the sessions I’ve ever photographed, I’ve never filled a card by halfway through a session! The Montgomery family […]

Portraits

I am so excited to share this Back Bay spring engagement session with you today! This was my second time photographing engagement portraits on Commonwealth Ave this year and let me tell you, springtime in Boston is magical. Add a sunny, 75-degree evening and it gets even better. Carol and Jon have called Boston home […]

Kayla & Brian: Crane Beach Spring Engagement Session

Couples

I am so excited to share today’s classic Crane Beach spring engagement session. Kayla and Brian are *the* epitome of a classic New England couple. He’s from the Cape, and she’s from a Connecticut town that could easily neighbor Stars Hollow. He proposed at Brant Point, an iconic Nantucket Lighthouse (Dillon and I celebrated our […]

Boston Public Garden Winter Engagement Session

arrow

Portraits

It was a quiet February afternoon on the day of Hilary and Matt’s Public Garden winter engagement session. I had just parked and was walking through Copley when a few snowflakes landed on my lashes. We were meeting on the Beacon Hill side, at the very spot where they were engaged in November. They are […]

The Goodspeed Family: New England Farmhouse Family Session

Portraits

Oh friends, today’s post is a really good one! This New England farmhouse family session was one of my favorite snippets of October. The prettiest foliage dotted the drive to their home and the sun was sparkling through the trees. As if that was not picturesque enough, the sky was the perfect blue. And the […]

Concord Massachusetts Portrait Session

Portraits

October is such a magical time. Katlyn Rose’s Concord Massachusetts portrait session took place on the most perfect fall morning. The air was crisp, but not too cold. We were up before the world woke up and it felt like we had the whole town to ourselves. We began Katlyn Rose’s session on Main Street […]
