Newborn Bliss...

Another beautiful Baby boy for us all to gush over! I was lucky enough to photograph his parents and big brother a few years back at their beautiful Autumn Vineyard wedding in Edgartown. It's such a blessing to then get asked to come and photograph the little life this family created in his first weeks of life! And what a cutie pie!!! Thank you guys, it was wonderful to see you all!

TAYLOR + ROB

This was such a fun engagement shoot! First off I've known this beauty since she was a wee one and I'm so excited to see her and her man so happy together. Rob and Taylor, you guys are the sweetest couple. I love your playful goofiness and amazing commitment to stone cold serious faces. Though we were literally caught in a wind storm we managed to create some beautiful and hillarious shots together. Although I have to say, hands down, the PJ pic is my fav. Love you both and congratulations on getting hitched!

XOXOXO ♥ Kristen

Congratulations Chrissy & Sidenil!!!

I'm so lucky to witness this wonderful union between one of my great Island friends and her new Hubby! It might have been a cold and blustery day on the Vineyard but the warmth of love was all around these two as they said I do. It snowed throughout the day, which I think has to be luckier than rain, but Chrissy and Sidenil still let me take them out to the bluff for some great couple portraits. Thank you both for allowing me to photograph such a special day in your life together! Check out these two love birds...

Newborn Shane...

I had the great pleasure of photographing this little Man's Mama only a few weeks before he was born. We had a wonderful Natural light shoot in his nursery. It was so fun to come back a few weeks later to see the Nursery all set up and this amazing little person out in our world. It's a wonderful thing to witness a friend become a mother and a couple become a family! Congratulations you three, you make an adorable family! ♥ Kristen

Newborn Maddox...

Okay, I might be biased but, come on, how frickin' beautiful is this little man? The apple didn't fall far from the trees ;) I was so excited to capture these moments of Maddox, they are only this little for such a very short time. Since having my own little Newborn i am sooo in love with Newborn and Maternity portraits! It's my new favorite. Enjoy! ♥ Kristen


And Handsome Big Brother Wyatt too...

The Phillips-House Family 2018

For the Phillips-House Family Portrait this year we had a wonderful time at the Beach Plum Inn where a "few" years back now Amy and Joe tied the knot! It was so nice to walk around the grounds with their beautiful boy and reminisce about their wedding day, the evening light couldn't have been more dreamy! Thank you guys for another great portrait session, I'm so glad we were able to connect and shoot at the Beach Plum Inn! I hope to see you again next Summer!!!

The Chmielewski Family 2018!

It was such an incredible end to a very hot Summer on Marth'as Vineyard! We squeezed in a great family portrait Session at the Edgartown Lighthouse just before Labor Day with this adorable family whom I know you'll recognize from the last 2 years. Their little girl get's smarter and cuter every time I see her! And thanks to her Uncle she also always looks fabulous for their Family Portraits! Thank you guys for another great photo session, I can't wait until next year!

The Dempsey Family 2018...

Last Year when I photographed the Dempsey Family in Vineyard Haven, they were almost ready to have their third child, this Summer I got to meet the little guy and Oh my goodness do these parents make cute babies!!! I enjoy photographing families so much, not just because we get to run around on the beach and have fun playing but also because I get to witness and capture them growing and changing, it is such a wonderful thing! I actually had the pleasure of photographing Patrick & Amanda's Wedding years back on the Allen Farm during quite an intense and beautiful stormy day! Their oldest was an adorable little girl at the time, I just can't believe what a beauty she has grown to be! Jack, their middle one is such a hoot; I'm thinking potential comedian actor! I loved all of his expressions so much I just had to make a collage! I can't wait until next Summer when their littlest one will be running around too! Thank you all for another wonderful Portrait Session!!!

I had the pleasure of photographing Becky & Lou's Wedding in Aquinnah a few years back and since then I've been lucky enough to photograph their growing family since Sammy, their absolutely adorable little boy, came along. Now they are expecting their second baby and I just can't wait until next Summer's portrait to meet and photograph him or her as the newest addition to the Family! Thank you all for another fun portrait session!!!

Chatham Family Portrait

It was so great to see the Mandel Clan again and meet their new additions this Summer on the Cape! I first met this great family at the Mandel-DeSantis wedding of Kate and Chris, who are now an adorable family of 4! I've had the pleasure of photographing the Mandel Family every few years since the wedding, it's so awesome watching their Family grow and capturing all the love that they've created. Thank you all so much for allowing me to photograph your family, it's such a pleasure!

Gabe 2018!!!

It's the 9th year of photographing this young man's portrait session, and it's always a pleasure! We have photographed it all over NE and this year we were back on the Vineyard. We went to Squibnocket to check out the new bridge, what a great spot and a beatiful morning! Gabe is such a sport and so is his Mama! We even went over to Alley's to get some fun porch shots and some "local flavor" in our photos. It was so good to see you all again, as usual! We joked about how I will photograph Gabe until he's out of High School and then one day maybe even his wedding! How amazing would that be, and what a fun photo journey to post about. Stay tuned for next year's photos!

The Doherty Family 2018

The Doherty Family is back for their 2018 Family Portrait Session and this year we walked down to the beach. This family is utterly adorable and such a pleasure to photograph. It also happens to be Julie & Brian's 10 year Wedding Anniversary which I had the pleasure of photographing. It is always amazing watching couples blossum into families and then seeing each child grow. We added a new addtion to our portrait session this year; Henry! Another wicked cute baby; you two make stunning children! I know I've said this before but, once my baby is born I will be asking Julie and Brian for parenting advice!!! I can't wait to see you all again next Summer!!!
