Turkey For You and Turkey For Me

Today is Thanksgiving. I am so thankful for so much in my life. I am thankful for my job, my clients, my car, my apartment. I am thankful for my health. I am thankful for the happy chaos that is my large extended family. I am thankful for traditions and how they connect people. I am thankful and appreciative for all that I have and know that I am one of the lucky ones.

Most of all, I'm thankful for my family and just how much fun they are!

And I'm thankful for the Mr. and all of our wonderful adventures, some exotic (this is us at Gullfoss in Iceland) and some more domestic (trips to Target are ALWAYS an adventure).

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

New England Family Photography: Everything Around Me Is Little

There are little girls and then there's THIS little girl! She never ceases to amaze me with her willingness to be photographed! I can trace her history of being a ham way back to when she was only a few weeks old and we had this session. See? I told you! We had so much fun and really, we have a lot in common, not the least of which is the movie "Annie." The day of our session, we caught some late afternoon light and were able to make the most of the awesome backyard!

I love her outfit. So stylish!




This one melts my heart.


There were so many photos I could have posted, but I didn't want to overload anyone with cuteness! Looking at these photos has definitely satisfied your cuteness quotient for the day! You don't even need to look at photos of puppies or kittens - you're all full up! Soon I'll be traveling back to visit this little one when she becomes a big sister! That should shake things up a bit!

Michelle and Mike, engaged: You Shared My Crazy Ways

I wanted to make sure I posted some photos from Michelle and Mike's engagement session because they are getting married this coming Saturday! So very exciting! I met up with them in Arnold Arboretum to hang out and explore. And, of course, talk about food and movies. 'Cause that's how I roll.

We lucked out with the gorgeous fall afternoon! We made our way to the tree in the Arboretum where Mike proposed and took some photos over there.

After the Arboretum, we drove over to the bar where Michelle and Mike had their first date! It was warm and cozy and we got a corner table where we could hang out, drink good fall beer, and take just a few more photos!

I like the paparazzi-style look of these images.

Michelle and Mike, I am so excited to photograph your wedding this Saturday! We are going to have SO much fun!

Boston Baby Photography: Say Good Morning to the Night

There is no better remedy for a bad day than an adorable cutie baby girl! And this little one has got it going on - she is cute and stylish and she has kewpie doll hair! This was her third photo shoot, so she's already an experienced model in front of the camera. I photographed her in the hospital and shortly after she was born. She's about 4 months old in these photos. I'm looking forward to our upcoming holiday session!
I love the photo of Baby H with her mom. There's something very serene about it. We always have such a wonderful time hanging out together! I have a feeling we have years of photos to go, which makes me one happy photographer!

Shannon and Mike: Like A Stamp To A Letter

This is a sneak peek from one of the many engagement sessions I photographed over the past week or so. Luckily the October snow didn't get in our way!


I'm also in the process of switching my blog over to another site. As with most things website related, the work tends to be slow going because it gets put behind actually shooting and editing, but hopefully I'll stay somewhat on top of it and I can debut a new blog soon!

In other news, I was down in NYC this past week for the PhotoPlus Expo at the Javits Center. It's a huge photography trade show and you can sign up to see speakers and try out new equipment. It's a great way to touch and test new products (I think I found a few to add to my roster). The Javits Center also happens to be near one of my favorite places to eat in NYC - Manganaro's Hero Boy. When I lived in New York a million years ago, I worked right around the corner and my boss Max introduced me to their chicken parm sandwiches and arancini. Yum! Visiting NYC has definitely turned into a trip about food and drink! I also managed to schedule a visit and session with Emily and Nicolas and their newborn son! It's always wonderful to catch up with couples, and I had the added bonus of seeing their parents as well. And, to round out the trip, I got to go to a taping of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon! Justin Timberlake was the main guest and he stood about 5 feet from me. For real. And I'm not going to lie - I get starstruck. I'm pretty sure I looked like an idiot, with that wide "I'm near a celebrity" smile that I seem to get in photos. Here's the clip of the opener where Jimmy and Justin run up into the audience. Justin stops right near where I'm sitting! Eeks!

One more thing, if you haven't done so yet, head over to my facebook page and "like" me! Pretty please with sprinkles on top?

Okay, back to work!
