The Dempsey Family…

It was so nice to see this beautiful family again under sunny skies. We had fun battling a pretty strong head wind and running around Menemsha; on the beach and the Jetty as well as Dutcher Dock and Squid Row of course. The best part was all of Little Jack's smiles and his big sisters help to get those smiles to come out! Thank you guys for a wonderful portrait session. I hope to see you again next Summer!

She said Yes!

I had the pleasure of witnessing and photographing the engagement of these two love birds! I love engagement portraits and it's not often I get to photograph the actual engagement itself, it was awesome and exctiting. These two are the sweetest couple and so in love. Thank you both so much for allowing me to be a part of such an incredible moment!

Vineyard Haven Family Fun…

We had a blast with the Tatro's and their extended family at Owen Park in Vineyard Haven. It was a beautiful Sunny Summer day with lots of smiles and fun with Cousins. Thank you guys for being so great and easy to work with! I hope to see you all again next year!

Jack, Ella, Pearl, Mom & Dad…

Another great family portrait with this sweet little clan! Normally it's tough to get a great shot, where everyone is smiling, of any young family let alone a family of five. That's not the case with this bunch of smiling faces however! We had a great time trompsing around the yard on a beautiful Sunny Summer morning. Thank you Ella and Jack for being wonderful assistants when I needed help getting Pearl to smile. I can't wait until next Summer to see how much you all have grown and have another fun Summer morning together!

A Menemsha Summer Portrait…

Okay, Okay, CUTEST LITTLE BOYS EVER! I couldn't get enough of them especially with their adorable little hats on! This portrait was a pleasure to shoot, and of course wrangling two little boys isn't always easy, but when you get those great shots it makes it that much more enjoyable! Thank you guys for being such sports and having such an adorable family!

Love Birds take the plunge!

I had a blast photographing these two love birds around the Light House in Edgartown, they are absolutely adorable together and I cannot wait to photograph their Wedding! They sealed the deal at the end of our session by "taking the plunge" together off of a local Edgartown dock and into the beautiful blue water. You guys are awesome! Thank so much for being so fun to photograph!!!

Menemsha Family Portrait…

Family time in Menemsha! I love photographing family portraits in Menemsha; so many awesome little vignettes and backdrops; lobsters, docks, the beach, shells, fishing boats... what more could you ask for? It also helped that this bunch was so fun to photograph and such awesome subjects; you might recognize them from our last family portrait; what a great family! Thank you guys for another awesome photoshoot! I hope to see you all again next year.

Stonewall Beach Portrait…

I had a blast in Chilmark photographing this great family. It's so fun to watch the children and the families grow with each Summer's portrait session. I love when families make a tradition of portraits and I am able to get to know them better with each passing year. Thank you all for a wonderful morning and being such great subjects! Until next time... I can't wait! :)

Beautiful Family…

You might recognize this adorable family from our previous family portraits and the wedding that started it all. I have had the pleasure of capturing their love grow into a wonderful family. These two little boys have quite the personalities and the 4 of us had a blast in the yard and then on the beach, we even got to have some big family fun and catch some shots of the newlyweds in the family. I can't wait to take photos of their little ones; hint, hint, lol. But seriously; It was a great day and I am a very lucky Gal! Thank you guys for allowing me to capture these awesome moments for you and your family! I can't wait until next year!!!

Brothers…

First off, I gotta say, I love this family; these boys are just so adorable and are the sweetest Brothers to eachother. They remind me of my little brothers when they were small; so much love and kinship between them. This cute clan showed me around Sheriffs Meadow sanctuary in Edgartown last week. The founder of the sanctuary and Sheriif's Meadow Foundtaion is non other than the youngest of this little clan's namesake! We had a blast running around on the paths and bridges that give way to beautiful vistas of ponds and the Atlantic beyond. What a great spot to photograph an awesome family! Thanks guys, I hope to see you all again next year!!!

Congratulations Mandy & Rob!!!

This pair of love birds was a pure delight to get to know and photograph, the love between them shined bright enough to clear the rainy skies and let the sun shine down on all of their guests before it set on their wedding day. It was a pleasure to witness and be part of such a wonderful day in their lives! Thank you Rob and Mandy for choosing me to be your photographer and share such a momentus event. I can't wait to see you two Love birds again; perhaps with a new addition in years to come.

Meet Peanut…

Well, almost! Remember Noodles? Noodles is now the adorable Abigail; patiently awaiting the arrival of her little Sibling known for now as "Peanut", aka baby bump. It was so great to see these two Love birds again in such an exciting time; awaiting their little peanut, surrounded by family and the loveliest of all; Abigail. I can't wait to meet Peanut next summer, under our Sunny Vineyard Skies.

Beth, Billy, West and Abe!

Not only was this family absolutely adorable but their home was picture perfect for family photos! I couldn't have asked for better. Just look at these little brothers; simply the cutest ever! Abe made his debut as a very happy, and a ham of a One year old, and just as photogenic is his big brother West! Thank you so much Terry for getting us all together for this wonderful photo shoot, I had a blast and it seems the whole family did too! I hope to see you all again soon!
