Colin – Age 2!

Web-0905

Little mister Colin & his family were one of my first clients for his first birthday last summer and I was so excited to be able to capture the start of his second year.

We had such a fun, relaxed shoot! I brought a few toys & some bubbles, and we played with those for a bit, but Colin was far more interested in a bike leaning up against the shed in his grandma’s back yard. So his dad pulled the bike out & mom held him on the seat and the smile that spread across Colin’s face was UNBEATABLE. I love this so so much, when families are casual and kids can be themselves, and just having fun is the focus of the shoot. Every smile is just the joy of the day. Thanks to Esther, Rachel, Ari & Colin for another great shoot!

Borderland State Park

Last Friday I had a family shoot in Sharon, MA and since I have explored nearby parks lately, I looked up the nearest one for me to check out afterwards – and it was Borderland!

It’s a beautiful park, clearly well-maintained, with marked pathways & plenty of open space to wander. I took the “swamp path” down to¬†the lake where there was a ton of overhead tree covering – no sunburns for me!

It would be a great place for portraits or an engagement session. Landscaped archways, small decks overlooking the lake, the architecture of the Ames Mansion, and areas of nice filtered natural light.

It was a great way to start the 4th of July weekend. I’m already planning a trip back for a round of disc golf. ūüôā

Some photos from my walk. I was a little pre-occupied with the vegetation and capturing some close-up details.

Family Session @ Plymouth Beach

On a gorgeous night in June, I headed down to Plymouth Beach to photograph this lovely group of people! This was my first beach session and I have to say I was lucky to have a laid back family who was very patient while I wrangled with direct sunlight and shadows in the early evening to try and get the best shots. It ended up being a great shoot & I had a blast capturing happy shots of the three boys, who were so great about being photographed, and their beautiful families.

I love how striking the black & white photos from this shoot came out!

Middlesex Fells Reservation

Medford, MA – This was a fun one! This is a regular stop for my sister and her two pups, but was totally new to me. We visited for a walk/hike on a very over-cast Saturday, spending more than 2 hours wandering the grounds. I’ve been really savoring any time spent outside lately, and this walk in particular felt almost therapeutic!

The Fells features heavily wooded areas, as wells as open fields and water (not for swimming, it’s a water supply). After walking all around, we stopped and sat by the water and watched some baby ducks. A great way to spend a Saturday!
