Arlington MA Family Photographer

I met up with this fun family at a park near their home in Arlington early one morning in the Fall. This particular morning was chilly and a little wet – but that didn’t stop these two young boys from running around and playing as we walked in the park. As one would expect with boys – Aidan and Gavin were full of energy and quickly ran ahead to look at the ducks and race each other. I certainly got my exercise that morning! Julie had set up the family portrait session as a gift to her in-laws, and I’m sure they were thrilled for images of their grandkids!

During family sessions I love to take candid images of the family just being themselves – walking, snuggling, and laughing. I took Aidan and Gavin one at a time and went on a walk around the bend to get some individual portraits as well. Doesn’t Gavin have the most gorgeous blue eyes?! Julie had told me they were blue on the phone when we talked, but wow- when he grows up he is going to have all the girls crushing on him with those baby blues for sure!

Aidan is a little older at and has such a wonderful sense of humor – he was telling jokes near the end of our session and keeping the family in stitches :)

My favorite images are always of people laughing – those carefree, eyes closed, toothy, belly laughs are the best! Luckily with boys 5 and 8 they had plenty of jokes for me- even if some of them didn’t have a punch line ;)

Happy family portrait MA


Julie and Jesse – thank you for trusting me to capture these images of your family- I had so much fun at your session!

Looking for a family photographer in the Boston area? I love capturing families large and small for a fun portrait session! Let’s have a picnic, play lawn games, set up a tea party or show me around your favorite hang out spot in Cambridge, Boston, Arlington, Belmont, Waltham or beyond. Sessions make great gifts too – Mother’s Day is May 12th!

Antique Romance : MA Styled Wedding Shoot

While I’m on a roll posting images from last Summer, let me share a bit about my collaboration with talented floral designer (and one my besties!) Navya from The Little Flower Cottage on a styled wedding shoot. As soon as I took these images I was in love with the details and couldn’t wait to share – but- I held off blogging because the images were selected to be featured on popular wedding blog Ruffled. Of course, I waited too long to share!

Navya has amazing style and most of the pieces in the shoot came from her personal collection – her house is like an adorable antique shop! Our shoot is filled with cream, blush and amber tones, mixed metals and warm light – perfect to celebrate an Indian Summer wedding. Plus, I got to eat photograph colorful and yummy macarons- can’t go wrong with sweets and diamonds…You can read more about the styling details over on Ruffled but I wanted to share some my favorite images with you – and a couple behind the scenes instagram snaps courtesy of Kate from Domestikated Life.


So much fun and I can’t wait to share our most recent styled shoot!
