The Blog


Karolina was one of the first friends I made once I became a mom. Her son Nicholas and my boy Calder are just a few short months apart, and in those long early days of new motherhood, I spent many mornings in her kitchen, guzzling coffee and discussing strollers and preschools and diapers (and plenty of afternoons guzzling wine and discussing how ridiculous it was that we were worried about strollers and preschools and diapers…). Her daughter Natalia was the very first newborn I ever photographed. Her husband Greg is one of the nicest guys I know. I was so happy to send an afternoon with this beautiful, grown-up (!!!) family one afternoon a few weeks ago, and we had a really good time. I had been chatting with some other photographers that I was weary of yet another photoshoot at the beach; I had done so many in the previous weeks that I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to come up with something unique, but Greg and the kids solved that for me the moment they decided that it was perfectly acceptable to jump off of the rocks fully clothed. Mission accomplished.

My heart is full and I am thrilled to share these with you. Happy 14th Anniversary to Karolina and Greg — I’m so lucky to know you all! xo

It’s been a few years since I’ve photographed Mary Fran and her awesome family, but I follow their adventures regularly here in town. I’m particularly fond of Mary Fran’s daily Facebook musings on returning to the work force with a position at a startup with a bunch of 20-somethings. Her three kids are enough to keep her and husband Jon young, though, and we were lucky enough on this beautiful afternoon to be joined by grandparents, which always makes things fun! Such a wonderful evening climbing rocks and splashing in the water at Sandy Cove. Thank you to Mary Fran, Jon, Tommy, Allie, and Drew for being such a great group!

Continuing along with my big blog catch-up from the fall, I bring you more autumn sunshine goodness in the form of these two awesome people. Seriously, could Sadie’s hair be any more fabulous for fall? And Dylan is no longer the little guy that used to battle over trains with Calder. He’s a full-on young man. Their mom Kristina likes to have them pose together in affectionate sibling ways, but you can see how Sadie feels about that these days 😉 Instead, we captured some amazing light and very authentic images. I love this gang!

It’s been fairly quiet here on the blog since just before the holidays; typically I like to blog my sessions shortly after they happen, but once we get into September and October, the backlog starts to grow, and certain late-in-the-year shoots get put on hold until things slow down in January. The benefit of this is that today, this day where they are predicting “life-threatening” wind chill, we can look at some gorgeous photos from warmer, sunnier days with brilliant landscape and lovely people.

I’ve been photographing Patty and her family since the boys were little, but this is the first year that they’ve had a dog; Bode made it very clear from the beginning that the shoot was really all about him, and that the humans were just props. Beautiful props, but still. He managed to appear in over 60% of the images I took that day, whether he was supposed to or not. It’s all good, though, because look at him. He’s a model! And a well-loved member of this amazing family. So, without further ado, I present Bode’s family: Lance, Patty, Will, and Reid. Don’t they all seem lit from within?

Two of my favorite kids from one of my favorite families: This shoot is always a lot of fun. I actually take lots and lots of photos of Gunnar and Lisel throughout the year — their mother Helena is one of my closest fiends, they are great friends with Calder, and we spend a lot of time at their house near Sandy Cove, climbing the rocks and strolling the beach. I am still holding out for the day when they take me with them on their annual trip to Sweden so that I can photograph them there;) This year, however, we did something a little different, but it doesn’t matter. I could shoot these kids anywhere — the light always seems to find them and wrap them in gold. I love how these came out, and I am so glad Helena jumped in for a few at the end! xoxox

It’s no secret that I love to photograph people with red hair. Something about the way the sunlight picks up all those subtle shades and shimmers of color just makes me so happy. I mean no disrespect to all of my differently-hair-colored clients, but when the leaves start to change, I am thrilled when I get redheads in front of my lens! I met up with Kimberly and her family last week down near the Cohasset Sailing Club so that we could take advantage of the awesome foliage, and I definitely got my fill of that beautiful hair. I absolutely love the way this family interacts with each other — Lily and Charlotte could not be sweeter, and check out the shot of Charlotte totally photobombing the picture of her parents! I was so happy that Kimberly let me take some individual shots of her and when I posted one of them on Facebook the day after the shoot, it pretty much broke the Internet. Moms — you need to be photographed!!

Gorgeous light, gorgeous family, wonderful friends. Enjoy!!

I love it when friends come together to their senior shoots. Especially when they make each other giggle. These BFFs brought out the best in each other and spent most of the shoot laughing, even when I made them climb into a potentially bee-infested tangle of thorns. Which: ART. Say hello to Morgan and Becca, and watch them shine 🙂


How stunning is Morgan??


I am so in love with the way Becca scrunches up her nose when she laughs…

Oh Katie and Jay. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways:

• I love that we watched football during our first meeting
• I love that you met me in three feet of snow for our first engagement shoot
• I love that you adore your rescue dog more than life
• I love that you post a photo of the sunrise view from your house every day
• I love that you had a parade party for St. Patricks Day and welcomed me and my gang
• I love that we got kicked out of the Scituate yacht club together during our summer engagement shoot and you didn’t even bat an eye
• I love that you wore Sperrys to your First Look
• I love that your fancy wedding shoes were SO BLINGED OUT
• I love that your families are so important to you and that they were such a big part of your day
• I love that Jay’s parents have a shady back yard!
• I love that you had a bishop marry you and that you got a papal blessing
• I love that the bishop forgot to have you exchange rings, so you got to do your first kiss twice 😉
• I love that you didn’t stress when your bus never showed up
• I love that you made it a point to feed your friends well and hang out with them so much during the middle of your wedding day
• I love that you bought Max a tie and made sure that we did photographs with him

• I love that you love each other so much that photographing you is easy

And finally…

• I love that you chose me to be your wedding photographer so that I could share this amazing day with you. What a huge blessing. I am so happy to call you friends!

Seriously? I am gaga over these shoes. And the flowers were GORGEOUS.


How fun it is that Ann Hathaway photobombed this?


Max. Max and His Tie. Katie and Max and His Tie.


I thought it was so great how all of the bridesmaids just fell into this sassy position while they were watching the formals.


Um…hello beautiful.


One of the most important photos of the day.

It’s possible that I’m still exhausted from this session, which was over a week ago. This is an energetic bunch! It’s shoots like this, though, that make me so happy that I get to do what I do. Four boys, rocks and trees to climb, lots of space to run, and a beautiful day — that’s the way summer should be.

Enjoy Aydin and Eren and their cousins Caleb and Sam, and don’t feel bad if you need to make a nap afterwards 😉

There’s not much that makes me happier than when clients come to me year after year for their family photos. One thing that does beat that, though, is when a client who has moved AWAY — all the way to Washington DC — makes a point to schedule a session while she’s back in town to visit. Sarah has been a loyal client since her kids, Ned and Charlotte, were little (see a few former shoots here and here). They are not so little any more, and in that crazy way that kids seem to grow several feet when you haven’t seen them in a while, Ned and Charlotte both showed up looking like teenagers. They are just as much fun as ever, and we had a really great time running around down by the Cohasset Sailing Club. Charlotte’s dress had elephants, which might be the coolest thing I’ve seen all year.

We even recreated an image from their very first shoot:

The family has since gone back to their new home in Maryland, but I’m so glad I got a chance to see them and I look forward to next time!
