Family portrait session – Stoneham, MA

This little cutie pie was not short on smiles, even after she tried to eat a leaf and taste her toes (shoes). Unbeknownst to you, little one, the world is in a bit of disarray at the moment but surely, it is a happier place with you in it!

Wishing you all a healthy and happy fall/winter season!

Family portrait session (Ashley, Stefan, W, W, +W) – North Reading, MA

This session felt like a hat trick of sorts: the youngest of three brothers turning the big ONE! And I have been privileged to photograph all of these milestones for them ever since before the oldest took his first breath. And now the oldest looks out for the youngest, and the middle endearingly follows suit – they look out for him when he’s near water, hug him when he seems upset, and hold his hand when walking alongside him. Happy birthday, littlest W.

Ashley + Stefan – thank you so much for your trust over the years to document your three Ws!

Newborn session (Courtney, Chris, + crew of six) – Wakefield, MA

Definition of a sibling: Built-in friend/tormentor/trouble-maker. Someone who will tease you when it’s just you and him/her but will stand up for you to no end against the rest of the world. Someone to talk to about all the wrong/insightful/unbelievable things your parents did when they were raising you. Someone to turn to when everything seems to be going against you. Someone you can call no matter what time of night.

So, when there are SIX siblings total, what a gift to have. Courtney + Chris certainly have their hands full, but it’s clear that their hearts are even more full. Thank you, thank you for sharing your amazing family with me.

Family portrait session (Ashley, Stefan, + the three Ws) – Beverly, MA

Oh, I feel like I owe this site a bit of love after basically shutting down for about 3 months! It feels like coming up for air a bit.

But to begin, I wanted to post from my first shoot in a long time. It was SO nice to get back out there after being in lockdown from the pandemic for nearly 3 months. These three little ones were just the remedy for feeling like life was never going to be normal again. Thanks, Ashley and Stefan, for braving the big outdoors with me!

Newborn session (Lesley, Bradley, and N) – Melrose, MA

Never before have I seen a newborn smile as much as he did during our session. He also made THE most adorable sad face, the kind that’s so sad that you can’t help but make an audible “awww” when you see it. The fact is, no matter what kind of expression he was making, he was irresistibly cute. Aside from a newborn baby, Lesley and Bradley have a lot going on around them with a complete renovation of their home, two dogs that love them, and visits from family from afar.

Congratulations, Lesley and Bradley, on your beautiful baby boy! What a joy to meet you all. Wishing you lots of strong coffee and long-lasting naps for all.
