Hello there, friends. It feels a bit to strange to be posting here, in all honesty. The summer came and went, we’re on to a new season, and I have this wedding here that I shot *whispers* Memorial Day weekend.
So, I hope you all had a great Labor Day and don’t mind time traveling a bit with all the back to before summer even happened to take a peek at this beautiful day. Laura and Sean got married in the pouring rain at the beautiful Wayside Inn in Sudbury MA. It was my first time photographing there and it was just so perfectly New England. I was very lucky to have the lovely and talented (and newly engaged!) Jessica Bartlett with me to assist and second shoot, and she saved me more than once from lugging equipment through the rain. She’s a trooper, for sure!
Laura and Sean were such an easy couple to photograph. The ceremony was personal and sweet, the music was “crowd-sourced” from their guests, and these people danced. Like, I wanted to put down my camera and dance with them. I was inspired by them and their guests to really dance it up at the weddings I attended this summer, because why not?
“Celebrate, we will, because life is short but sweet for certain…”
Today I would like for you to meet sweet little Sadie. I photographed Erin and Mike’s little love about a month ago, and she is just the sweetest little thing. And tiny! Oh my goodness, now that Lily is getting big, I had forgotten just how tiny newborns are! What a difference just a few short months can make!
I met Erin and Sadie at their home, as I do with all newborn sessions, and Sadie was way too curious about this big camera thing to get sleepy for us, but we made the best of the day, and she and Erin did a great job being beautiful and sweet and cuddly. Mike joined us a little later and I was so glad to be able to get some pictures of him with his little girl, and the whole family together. I love photographing newborns, and I always make sure to get some family pictures, too. There’s nothing more beautiful than a new mom and dad holding this brand new precious life in their arms. It’s the most tiring and heart-wrenching job in the world. These tiny people just grab hold of your heart and turn your world upside down. It’s incredible.
It’s been a joy to be able to photograph Erin and Mike’s engagement, wedding, and new little one this past year. I consider myself to be a very lucky lady to be entrusted with documenting such special times in people’s lives. They are a great family, and I wish them so much happiness (and sleep)!
Sadie was sweet enough to give me a couple smiles during her shoot. Is there anything better than a baby smile?
I think we could all use some cute baby pictures this week, wouldn’t you say?
Audrey came into the world in early December, making Gina and Andrew’s a family of three. She was so incredibly teeny tiny, and even having just had a newborn myself, I was amazed by her size. She is now four months old, freshly baptized and full of personality, but looking back at these photos, I am so glad I was able to do these pictures of her. The newborn phase goes by so, so quickly. Day to day, week to week, and before you know it, they’re on to the next milestone or growth spurt.
I was able to get a couple pictures of her when she was a day old, still in the hospital, when I went for a visit, and then spent a nice Sunday morning at Gina and Andrew’s house, doing silly things like putting this teeny baby in her teeny stocking (which she did not like) and getting some pictures of her snuggling with her mommy and daddy by the Christmas tree (which she liked very much).
