More proof that the coolest people come from Canada.

Fonzie, however, is an all-American canine.

Deanna and Sarah were so good for me.

I love this shot of Sarah in front of the only tree that hadn’t gone brown.

Pretty Deanna.

Sue and Jeff were total stars.


A big thank you to the whole family for bringing the awesomeness!

Each year I try to write a post on the day before Thanksgiving detailing all that I have been thankful for in the past year. This year, however, I am crazy busy (thankful!) and somewhat behind, so I’m going to have to wait until next week to post my thoughts. Happily, however, I can apply my thankful-ness to Will and Reid, who make me smile just by existing. I’ve known them forever and while I don’t see them as often as I would like, when we got together a few weeks ago, we picked up right where we left off, which was with the both of them ruling the universe.

We got a bit of a late start, so I dragged them deep into the woods near their house where I spotted one tiny little patch of lingering light.

Even after we lost that sun, they still lit up for me.

Parents Patty and Lance moved into a new house at the beginning of this year; this great little stone building on the property was a perfect setting for some relaxed portraits. Reid was a perfect subject.

And Will (a.k.a. mini-Lance) is such a stunner.

Willing to have leaves dumped on them.

We took a whole lot of jumping photos — this one just cracks me up.

This shows that there’s still a touch of little boy in Reid.

Will’s definitely long beyond the little boy stage.

Patty, Lance, Will, and Reid — thankful doesn’t even begin to describe it.

Cindy and Jeremi had Chloé and Howie, and all was good. Somewhat slobbery, but good. Then they had Aviana, and good turned to amazing. They all live happily together in a light-filled house with views of the water. As if they needed anything else beautiful to look at.

Chloé was initially shy in front of the camera, but it wasn’t long before she found her groove.

Aviana had no problems posing for me.


Howie wanted in on the action.

Quick outfit change, and a chance to admire her fabulous self.

I love this one.

Cindy and Jeremi’s house is filled with beautiful art. Jeremi took the photograph above Aviana.

Some carpet time, playing with the dogs. Aviana is completely comfortable with the slobbering. Kindred spirits.

Trés chic, no?

At this point our models started to fade, but we popped outdoors for a quick family shot before saying goodbye. Truly a favorite from the year — a big thank you to Cindy, Jeremi, Aviana, Chloé, and Howie for welcoming me into their home!

Kathy had the winning bid for a shoot benefiting the Cohasset Education Foundation, which makes me especially happy, as I’ve been wanting to work with her kids for a long time. Meet James, Kasey, and Cate!

James lit up when I started talking about XBox.

Kasey just lit up, period.

And Cate? Those teeth just kill me. LOVE her.

On my favorite fence.

Love these shots of Kasey — she giggles at everything.


A fun sibling moment.

Thank you Kathy, for bringing your gang and for a super-fun afternoon!

This was my third shoot with Jacob, Elizabeth, and Alexa, and they just keep getting better. Buddy the dog, however, just keeps getting bigger. Last year he was brand spanking new and we laughed while he wiggled everywhere. This year it took all three kids, their dad, and a very strong rope to keep Buddy from knocking over the photographer (who: very grateful).

We got a great afternoon at the Norris Reservation in Norwell:

Jacob amazed me with how much he’d grown.

Elizabeth told me all about how much she loves school 🙂

Alexa matched the foliage with her awesome hair.

Dad John is a police officer, so he knew how to wrangle buddy into submission. Kind of.

A quick Dance Party to end the day. Thank you to Lauren and John, Jacob, Elizabeth, Alexa, and Buddy!

Lylah and Farrah giggled the heck out of their wicked chilly shoot. I adore these people.

Farrah shows 30 degrees who’s boss.

Lylah? Even bosser.

Sufficiently warmed up and ready to fly.

Happiest kids on the planet, maybe.

Most beautiful family on the planet, definitely.

John, Sheila, Lylah, Farrah: I am eternally blessed to know you all. xoxox

You might have thought we were crazy, huddling out there in the harbor on the morning of the day they were calling for sleet and snow. We were.

It was worth it, though.

Say hi to Dulaney, Elizabeth, and Carter. They braved the chilly temperatures and knocked it out for me.

Dulaney is almost 13 and has arctic blue eyes.

Elizabeth is 10 and wins the prize for Best Smile in a Wind Storm.

A few years ago when Carter was very small, he heard that it was school picture day and he wouldn’t pose for me until his mom had brought him his navy blue blazer. These days he’s a little less formal, but no less charming.

Can you tell they’re hanging on for dear life?

We took a coats-on break to warm up, and they still rocked the shot.

Stylish sisters.

I love me some hats.

A huge thank you to all three kids and mom Logan for braving the elements and bringing so much fun to the day!

I hadn’t seen Emily, Charlotte, and Caroline since Caroline was an infant, so when the three of them got out of the car on the afternoon of our shoot, I had to readjust my brain for a moment to remember that yes, Lisa, children do grow.

But not so fast, okay, please?

Emily just killed me with those eyes:

And Charlotte is just pretty, pretty, pretty:

And Caroline; seriously? Those curls?

Jumping around to stay warm:

Thank you, girls (and mom & dad!) for a super afternoon 🙂

Can we talk about how nice it is to have subjects that sit still for me? I would be happy to shoot with these girls all day. It sure doesn’t hurt that they are all spectacularly beautiful. Or that they all have the BEST freckles.

This is Abby:

This is Regan:

And this is Anna:

And this is Tracy, which is how the other three got so gorge:

The wind was yowza crazy, but we worked with it. I love this shot of Anna:

I’m so happy I caught this moment with Tracy and Abby:

Regan has the kind of eyes (and freckles!) that photographers melt over:

We were out during the last few minutes of light before the sun set, so I challenged each girl to look directly west so I could capture those catchlights.

Look at them all staying still, looking at the camera, smiling. Who knew this was even possible? Heaven.

A big thank you to all the girls for their cheerful cooperation and for helping me discover the financial possibilities of selling found golf balls!

You don’t mind if Evan drools all over the merchandise, do you? This kid loves him some pumpkins.

Happy kid.

Wagon captain.

The sweaters that Evan is wearing in these photos have been handed down through Meg’s family for generations. She was so happy that Evan could model them for us.

I don’t think I could possibly love these next two any more.

Seriously?

A big thank you to Meg and Evan for hanging out with me!
