Michelle & Chad’s Engagement Session

A couple weeks ago I had a wonderful time shooting Michelle and Chad’s engagement session at beautiful Appleton Farms in Ipswich.  We had a gorgeous autumnal afternoon to walk around the property and snap away.  We will be photographing this lovely couple’s wedding next October so it was a great opportunity for us to get to know each other a little better!  As soon as I got home I started editing their photos because my baby’s due date was just a couple weeks away – and it was a good thing I worked on them then because our baby girl was born just four days later!  Congratulations to Michelle and Chad – I can’t wait to help capture many sweet moments on your wedding day!

Baby Praplaski

I’m thrilled to share of few of the images from this adorable girl’s fall photo session.  Sometimes photographing young toddlers can be challenging because they are SO active, but this sweet baby was so happy and cheerful and made my job easy.  Those eyes!!

Nguyen Mailloux Family

I had a blast taking these second birthday/family photos for my friend Marcia and her family a couple weeks ago.  What was especially fun is that their little guy (who just turned TWO!) has been my son’s buddy since they were both teeny babies.  As my son gets older, it is amazing to see his friends grow and change too.  Coincidently, Marcia and I are expecting our second babies right around the same time – in fact, our due dates are the SAME day!  I’m so glad we were able to capture these sweet photos, and I can’t wait to welcome our new babies to the crew very soon!

Volain Maternity Session

I had so much fun taking these sweet maternity photos for Claire and David.   I love doing maternity sessions because it is an amazing time to document both the physical transformations that pregnancy brings, but also the brimming excitement and love between a couple.  This little baby is certainly lucky to have parents who are SO excited to meet him!

Baby Meredith!

I’ve had the good fortune to be able to photograph some seriously adorable little ones lately.  I love the challenge of doing toddler sessions because you have to be quick, flexible, engaging, and creative – tasks that will keep any photographer on their toes!  Little Meredith was such a sweetie pie – I’m so happy to share a few of these fun photos here today.

Sherwood Family

I had such a great time taking these sweet family photos at Endicott Park in Danvers.  We got lucky with a beautiful late August evening as we strolled through the grounds of this amazing park.  Baby smiles are the BEST.
