The wedding of Petruvna and Hatim :: Lakeview Pavilion, Foxboro, MA

The wedding of Petruvna and Hatim started off similar to most; everyone getting ready, makeup flying around everywhere, dresses, flowers, and laughs. But that's where the similarities sort of ended. Their processional was equivalent to most reception entries. The mood was incredibly festive from the minute the groomsman walked down the isle and it escalated as the day went on. By the end of the night, the dance party was so big, I couldn't even get out on the dance floor to take pictures. I stood on a chair up front so I could get some pictures, and even my very wide angle lens couldn't get them all in. It was infections; I ended up wide awake till 3am! Their family and friends were all so kind, friendly and very easy to get into pictures, which was great because the wedding party had 27 people!

The Lakeview Pavilion was breathtaking! Every detail was taken into account, the staff was so friendly and helpful, and the location was a dream to photograph in. I hope I get back there for another wedding soon!

Congratulation Petruvna and Hatim! Thank you so much for having me as your photographer.

Happy New Year :: Boston based wedding and lifestyle photographer

Happy 2017!

The calendar flips another month and another year and it always feels like a clean slate in a way. Not sure why, but I never used to give it much thought. The New Year was just a reason to be with friends, wear glittery hats, and smooch with my love well past our bedtime. This year and those most recent, we haven't made it to midnight and I couldn't be happier about it. We wake up early, and a late night means a groggy day. I love waking early, cooking, cleaning, and feeling as if I've gotten in a full day before it's noon.

The clean slate of the new year has been important in the years since I've had my business. I feel it's important to reflect on the past year to see what I did well, what I want to do better, and then make a plan to do that. I make my plan for the new year first, then I reflect. What can I say, I work backwards.

Last year I wrote my new years blog and I was giddy with excitement about what I had in store for the new year. Looking back, the year I had blew the year I expected out of the water. The pictures below tell a story of many stories that I was incredibly lucky enough to document. I met many newborns, documented weddings, and took pictures of families just living their lives. To top it all off, most of the newborn shoots involved dogs! Seriously... weddings, kiddos, babies AND dogs!? 2016 was not so bad, but I am quite excited for 2017 and all that it has in store. Before we get a full day into 2017, I'm happy to share my favorites from this year.

Much love and health to all my friends this year. I truly hope you have begun 2017 in the best way and I thank you so much for all the opportunities you have given me as your family photographer.

To get more information on a wedding, newborn or lifestyle photography session, please contact me! I look forward to the opportunity to spend time documenting your family, and providing pictures for you to cherish in the years to come.

It's day 1 of reflecting on 2015, and what better place to begin than my first wedding of the season?
