Details | October

One of my favorite parts about being a photographer is silently observing all that surrounds us. I love to look at all the little details that make our lives whole and capture them with my camera.

At the end of each month I will post a monthly wrap-up called “Details”, where you will find my detail inspired shots taken throughout the month.

Octobers are bittersweet. Fall in New England is the reason I could never leave. All year I daydream of these sweet, brisk mornings filled with glowing light and vibrant colors. Then it hits you. In the course of one short month, we turn from summer to winter. Winter, while beautiful in its own right, brings the short days I could do without. These colors though. They make the transition worth it.

3 Labs and a Wedding

While rain from hurricane Matthew made its way up the east coast, it held off just long enough for Lindsey and Denise’s big day. The recent cool night air seemed to have turned the leaves overnight to create the perfect colorful setting for this New England fall wedding.

The girls have been hard at work prepping Spruce Brook Farm for this day and their back yard shined brightly with freshly planted mums. I instantly fell in love with the gorgeous farm tables adorned with everything fall: burlap runners, hand tied napkins, maple leaves, gourds, and mason jars filled with apples. Each and every detail had been thoughtfully crafted and placed—from the hot cocoa and s’more packs to the hand painted directional signs.

What’s a gorgeous farm wedding without the faithful farm dogs? Madi, Mox and Mayson made their appearance complete with doggie go-pros, much to the guests’ delight.

One word to describe this wedding: fun. What a happy, vibrant group of people. These two are so well loved.

A lovely wedding for a lovely couple. Congratulations, Lindsey and Denise. And thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for trusting and believing in me to document your day. The best is indeed, yet to come. Cheers!

18 months | Ana

My sweet, silly, persistent, stubborn little girl has reached that momentous half birthday: 18 months.

Where did the last year and a half go?

I seriously, have no idea. To say the last 18 months have been a challenge is an understatement. But this face? This little face makes all the hard work, late nights and early mornings worth it.

And this girl? This girl is going to move mountains.

Class of 2017 | Emily

Fall was in full swing this Saturday in New England, with the leaves reaching their brightest colors. One minute it feels like summer, the next, we wake up to painted landscapes and brisk morning air. I am always amazed at how quickly autumn comes in, then out, and wish for it to stay just a bit longer.

Needless to say, it was a perfect afternoon to spend soaking in the last light with Emily and her pony. Calloway may not have been the most enthusiastic equine model, but these two were so adorable together—slobber and all. Plus, Emily nailed it with these gorgeous shots!

Thank you, Emily, for braving the thorn bushes and laughing alongside me. Best of luck with your senior year! #classof2017

Caturday

It’s #caturday! My favorite day of the week. Why? Because today I get to share my cat obsession with the world. So, can we talk a minute about how obsessed I am with this cat?

Obsessed.

Seven is one of my all-time favorite cats. He’s really more like a little clown in a fur suit that purrs. I think I have problems…

Enjoy your caturday friends!

Paul & Lisa

These two. Seriously, how cute are they?

Sunday was a perfect blustery fall day here in New England. Bright, moody clouds filled the sky, with on and off drizzle threatening to turn into rain. Cancel? Reschedule? Of course not! I love this weather. It makes for perfect photos, especially for a beach shoot. Although not bright and sunny, we get to skip the harsh shadows and hard light. A photographer’s dream—what could be more perfect!

Paul and Lisa are a very special couple. Their laughter is infectious and can bring you to tears. But not only are they funny, enthusiastic, sweet and kind—they are family. What could be more special than being able to take part in such an important event for these two. I seriously can not wait for their wedding next fall, and until then, I will leave you with these.
