Some cozy portraits of Roxanne at home, relaxed, unposed and natural. Just the way lifestyle photo sessions should be!
Flashback to a perfect fall day with the perfect guy, exploring nature. Featuring outfits by L.L.Bean.
This summer I had the privilege of photographing Adrianna and her baby boy Owen while we visited Owen at the hospital, and then again once he was finally home after a long wait. Owen is a preemie and was born at 35 weeks, and I have been so totally amazed at Adrianna's strength and grace as she navigates this challenge with her new family.
Strength doesn't always mean putting on a brave face - strength is asking for help, it is waking up at 2AM to make sure your baby has milk and driving 30 minutes to the hospital multiple times a day to cuddle and feed, it is riding each wave as it comes and putting this tiny persons needs before your own over and over again.
I don't want to pretend to understand an experience I've never been through, but watching friends grow into such incredible mothers has showed me motherhood can be darkness and light, heartbreak and joy, all at once. And seeing this family home, finally together, makes it worth every difficult moment.
As an adventurous portrait photographer, I’m always willing to explore my environment and push boundaries to get the shot. But with the way things are with ticks in these beautiful long grasses, I generally shy away from suggesting locations where deer ticks will be present and never pressure my subjects to risk exposure to tick bites. With that said, Nicole was in the mood to risk it and it was totally worth it for these ethereal portraits we were able to capture as the sun was setting over the field.
I’m always excited to partner with other local creatives on styled shoots, but this one was especially close to my heart. As someone who strives to incorporate cruelty free, clean beauty products with minimal packaging into my own routine, this best friend shoot celebrating GLO Beauty products at Warehouse XI was SO much fun!

Powder Point Bridge in Duxbury has a special place in my heart, so when Jillienne suggested we shoot her lifestyle portrait session there I was so excited! It was a beautiful, windy day. We explored the beach in her red truck, ran around barefoot and watched the tide coming in from the shore. Coastal beach sessions can be so much more than posing in front of the ocean, and places like Duxbury Beach offer so many alternative locations to take portraits. It’s safe to say that this is a top 10 spot for portrait sessions in Massachusetts!
