While I knew that Jill was expecting, it was a bit of surprise that she was back in Maine for Miss Abby’s birth after living in another state for a bit. Thanks to the magic of social media, we were able to quickly connect and I shot a few photos while mom and babe were still in the hospital. Fast forward a week or so and Jill brought the whole family to the studio for Abigail’s newborn session. We definitely hoped for a great sibling shot with her big brother, but he definitely had other ideas. So enjoy his quick appearance in this sneak peek, because it’s the ONLY shot he made it into!  Abigail was a bit more cooperative, but definitely made me work for it too!

When we bought our house a little more than ten years ago, I never would’ve guessed that we would be blessed with neighbors who would so quickly become more like family. Which of course also means that it was hard to imagine their teenage boys growing up and having babies of their own just a week or so apart! Well, that very thing happened and I couldn’t have been more excited to gift each baby girl with their very first photo session. First up is Violet’s sneak peek; a perfect model for her session at just four days old.

Two years ago I met a tiny little girl named Lux during one of my hospital visits. She and her parents quickly became some of my favorite clients to have in the studio, so I was so excited when I found out Lux was going to have a baby sister. Lux was one of the easiest newborns I have ever photographed. Baby sister Mila definitely had other ideas. She much preferred to be awake and would rather eat than pose;) A lot of patience and a bit of swaddling and rocking and we managed to get some beautiful shots<3

Izzi’s Lele had a very important session need. Miss Izzi NEEDED her photo taken in this fantastic dress her Memere had made. But in order for this to happen, we had a few obstacles to overcome.

1. The session had to be inside…and soon.

2. Izzi HATES photo shoots.

3. Izzi does NOT like dressing up (and I think all this tulle makes her a little crazy).

The solutions actually came fairly easy.

1. New studio backdrop was ordered and we squeezed Izzi in just a couple hours before heading to NewYork for Thanksgiving.

2. Papi HATES his photo taken too, but appeased Izzi and jumped in a few shots.

3. Skittles for breakfast and Izzi will dress up in whatever you want!

 

Here are a few favorites<3

When Katie and I decided on a date to schedule her family session after a ridiculously warm October, we had no idea that this would turn out to be the coldest day of the year so far!  Thankfully, this family is full of troopers and totally pulled through. Of course, we worked as quickly as possible and I couldn’t have been happier to spend this short time with them. Katie’s family is always happy and just a joy to be around. Thank you guys for making a very chilly morning so fun!

I first met Kassondra about ten years ago when she volunteered as a junior coach when we first started our rec cheering program. She was then and still is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. She always has a smile on her face and is always willing to go out of her way to make people happy. This was again evident during her engagement session when we crossed paths with one of her students. I couldn’t help but smile as Kassondra strayed from Tony and I to scoot to the level of a little boy who was quite confused to see his teacher in a different setting, just to say “Hi” and that she hoped he was having a great day.  This session was also the first I had met Tony, but it didn’t take long to realize that he is most definitely Kassondra’s perfect match.  Tony is quiet and laid back and equally as kind as Kassondra.

Tony and Kassondra, thank you so much for asking me to photograph your wedding next fall! I cannot wait<3

Now that we finally have power and life is returning back to normal after last week’s crazy storm, I can finally share the sneak peek of Kai’s one year session!  I have had so much fun getting to know Kai and his wonderful parents over the past year. I love how sweet and creative Serena and Corey are and there’s no doubt in my mind that Kai’s little personality fits perfectly with theirs.

Thank you guys for coming out and for making such a fantastic smash cake! Not to mention making a kid who REALLY knows how to smash his cake;)  Enjoy the preview!

After having the opportunity to photograph Josh and Tuesdae’s wedding four years ago, life clearly has had it’s way of keeping us on separate paths since this was my first time meeting little Nolan! All three boys pretty much thought that anything would’ve been better than family pictures, but we worked through their stubbornness and got some great shots anyway;)

Josh and Tuesdae, thank you for asking me to shoot these for you. Enjoy your sneak peek!

After a year since our last session, I was excited to spend a little time with this sweet family again. It was so fun to see how much the boys have grown and changed in just a year. And thanks to an amazingly warm fall, we certainly had the perfect weather the day of our session!

Eric and Erica, thank you again for asking me to capture another session for you guys. You are truly the best <3

I am so happy to be able to say that Kelly is one of my dearest friends. And since I am so lucky to have her in my life, it means I am also super lucky to love the whole rest of her family too<3 So, when last minute opportunities arose to squeeze in a family session, we looked at our schedules and just made it work. We seriously had less than 30 minutes to make this work, and we did it beautifully!
