The Fenton Family…

It was so great to see Abbey and Chris again and to finally meet their two adorable boys! You might remember Abbey and Chris from their Engagement Portrait and Wedding a few years back. For this fun family portrait we got to play in the cool waters at Lambert's Cove beach on a beautiful summer morning. Check out this adorable clan...

Chloe + Chris…

Check out these two gorgeous love birds and their new furry baby! I LOVE Quansoo; the light, the breeze, the path to get there; everything about Quansoo creates a perfect backdrop for a beautiful and head over heels in love couple. It was such a pleasure to photograph Chloe and Chris for their Engagement Portrait and to capture their love with photographs for them to share for years to come! I can't wait for the Big Day!!!

The Mandel Family…

It was so great to meet up with this clan again at End of The World Park in Hingham Mass. It's been some years since I photographed Kate and Chris's Wedding, I was also lucky enough to photograph their beautiful baby Olivia last Summer and to see the whole family again was awesome and rare since they are international globe trotters! Thank you guys! I hope to see you all again the next time you are together!

The MacAllister Family...

One of my all time favorite families to photograph...The MacAllister's are back for another year! I was lucky enough to photograph Jenny and Ian's wedding a number of years ago and since have been able to witness and photograph not just their beautiful babes but also Jenny's Sister's babes and Wedding and friends families! It's so amazing to watch them all grow and shine. Thank you for another great summer session Jenny and Ian, I'll see you soon!

The Doherty Family…

It was so great to see this clan again and meet their newest addition! We had fun running around a beautiful and private spot up on Lambert's Cove. I love watching couples from their wedding day and then as they turn into a family and then watching their families grow! It's the best part of what I do! Thanks for another fun shoot guys! I can't wait until next year!!!

Gabe in Nantucket!!!

Gabe is back! This time we were on Nantucket Island with the family, what a blast! I have to say that every year I look forward to photographing Gabe's portrait and seeing his Mom Wendy. It has been a bunch of years now and it is an amazing thing to watch a boy grow up year by year, I really see the difference from the last year because I see him only once a year. It is so interesting to see what has changed and even more so to see what has remained the same throughout the years about Gabe's personality, manerisms and appearance. What I've noticed throughout all the years is Gabe's loving nature and excited spirit! I can't wait to see you all again next year! Wonder where we will be for that one? Just for fun here is Gabe in 2010, 11, 12, 13, 14  Enjoy!

The Sanson Family… 

I just have to brag and say "my families" are the best families! I am so blessed to be able to meet a couple when they are engaged, witness their wedding and meet their families, and then one day meet their children and their family's children! It is amazing. When I say "my families" it's because I have had the wonderful opportunity to be with them for some of the most precious memories; I get to watch them grow; I am so lucky... AND, like I said, "my families" are the best! Just check out this awesome and adorable gang...

The Mendenhall Family…

After a few days of rescheduling with this unpredictable New England weather we finally landed a gorgeous day to explore Lambert's Cove Beach with the Mendenhall Family. I love Lambert's Cove for all the little nooks along the path to photograph, and also, of course, the raw beauty of the beach itself. It is especially fun to photograph LCB with a great big loving family as the subjects! Thank you Mendenhall's for being such great sports and braving the wind with us, you guys rocked it!

The Rogers Family…

It's so amazing to get to spend a morning with an entire family; of course it makes me miss my own family, but it is so nice to see Families together on vacation and enjoying eachother. It's also so fun to get a chance to photograph and interact with toddlers, they are always unpredictable and challenging but at the same time so adorable and amazing, it is the best feeling when you capture a genuine moment of a toddler! Check out this beautiful family and the fun morning we had at the Edgartown Light House!

Becky, James & Blue…

The only thing better than photographing love birds for their engagement session is photographing love birds and their Dog! Blue; what a sweetheart! We had fun running around on the beach, dunes and dock at Owen Park in Vineyard Haven, it was a perfect morning. Thanks Becky and James for being awesome subjects. I can't wait for the Big Day!!!
