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!!!

Katie, Ryan and Finnigan…

These crisp December days are amazingly beautiful, the way the light lingers in the cold air just before sunset and blankets the earth with a soft buttery light, I can't get enough! I was so glad to photograph this happy family and their new little guy Finnigan. Watch out ladies he's a heart breaker, so handsome and very serious, but we managed to get some awesome smiles! Thanks guys it was great to hang with you and capture some beautiful shots!

Congratulations Carol & Jaxon!!!

What an Amazing Wedding and the perfect way to end my wedding season. Nothing is better than photographing and witnessing a friend and their true love tying the knot! Jaxon and Carol where such a pleasure to photograph, it's easy to see their love shine through. The day was rainy and crisp, but everytime we journeyed outside the sky would clear, nature was on the side of the lovebirds for sure! We even had a little sushine right before sunset, just in time for our last couple photos. Thank you Carol and Jaxon for allowing me to be part of, and photograph, your wonderful day!

Jacqueline + Seth

Check out these two Lovebirds... Turns out they've known eachother since they were school kids but they never really met until they both moved out to the West Coast! It's funny how Love weaves it's plan, it just goes to show that if it's meant to be it will be! Seth and Jacq, it was such a pleasure to hang out and find the best spots all around Lambert's Cove, thank you for being such good sports!!!

Congratulations Amanda & Penny!!!

What a gorgeous night and an amazing couple, you can't beat that combo! Amanda and Penny were a delight to photograph, their love shown through so brightly that I just had to stand back and click the shutter, they did all the rest! There is also something really amazing about very small weddings, when it is just the couple and the players who perfrom and photograph the wedding, the star of the show is the union, the commitment that marriage is all about. These moments in time, witnessing two people so in love finally join together and make the ultimate commitment to eachother, these moments are why I am a wedding photographer. Thank you Amanda & Penny for including me in such a remarkable day in your lives.
