Say Hello Little Miss Melanie!
A day in the life of this adorable little lady… is full of laughter, adventure and play. I can’t think of a better way to spend the afternoon than in the park, blowing bubbles, picking flowers and discovering the scientific elements (she keeps those blocks in her purse), So cute!
With mom and dad behind her there’s nothing she can’t do!
(Well except for frolic barefoot, because she has to show off those pretty little sandals with that adorable purse!)
Mom and dad are so very proud!!!
I couldn’t resist this next image, my absolute favorites, as she played peek-a-boo through the bench!
Who can resist this face!
I had to chase her to get these last few images, while the clever little lady laughed at me as I rolled around on the grass with her!
Thank you Miss Melanie for a lovely morning adventure!
The skies were brooding with colors of gray and blue in anticipation of flurries hesitant to fall to the ground. I’m pretty sure mother nature was just waiting to make sure Janine & Matt got to the church safely and all the guests made it to the reception… There is nothing quite like a majestic winter wedding and of course I’m biased as Janine picked my favorite colors for her wedding. I’m loving the red wedding!!!
While the gentleman were at the hotel getting ready, the girls were all bustling away at Janines’ family home. I can not tell you how overjoyed I was to see such a beautiful family attend to every single detail of her wedding and involve so much family tradition.
Such a classic beauty! Matt, you are a very lucky man.
Then we were off to St Francis of Assisi in Swansea, MA.
And here she comes!
I loved going through the images and seeing everyone’s expressions as if they waited forever for the moment above.
By the way, that stunning red winter bridal cape was handmade as a wedding gift for Janine by her mom. Just beautiful.
I love watching the way he makes her laugh…
After the church we left for the State House in Rhode Island. It was so windy and chilly but we got some of these fantastically fun shots before heading over to the reception.
All Janine wanted for her wedding day to see a little bit of snow!
Reception time at Spring Valley Country Club! More red, I just love it. Almost as much as those winter wedding boots Janine was rocking!
Janine and Matt, Congratulations on such a beautiful day with your fantastic families and wonderful friends.
I have to say your wedding was filled with so much tradition, love, and excitement that it was simply a pleasure to be there capturing every moment of it. I wish the best for the both of you and may you live every single day of your lives happier than the first one together!
Many Thanks to the amazing people who helped put everything together so beautifully and elegantly for Janine and Matt.
I also have to say a special thank you to my amazing and talented friend and second shooter Jeff Newcum . He got so many magnificent moments of Matt and the guys getting ready. Not only did he get those captures of some gorgeous details and extra moments, he is also responsible for enhancing what mother nature did not.
So thank you so much!
Today I’m ecstatic to share some images of a lovely young lady that I had the pleasure of photographing recently. Lauren is a Senior this year at Silver Lake Regional High of Kingston, MA and is wonderfully fortunate to have an amazing family property beach side in Westport, MA. Once we met up, her father explained to me just a fraction of the history of this great place with it’s vast curving beach line, exquisite terraced garden and my personal favorite
- the remnants of the previous mansion on the eroded beach giving depth and character to the shore line.
Lauren is a dynamic young woman. Her gentle demeanor paired with her confidence and poise truly shine through in the images below. A striking young woman with eyes as blue as the ocean, she reminded me of the beauty and complexity of the Nereids roaming the beaches, written about in Greek Mythology.
I couldn’t have picked a more suitable location for her senior portraits!
I love how the images below of Lauren walking through the seagrass towards the beach exemplify the contrast between the sweet and elegant side of her flowing into the vivacity of the following rugged and furrowed images.
Lauren I wish you a fantastic senior year and know you have a remarkable future ahead of you! It was my pleasure to capture your senior portraits.
