Congratulations Witney & Matt!!!

It was such a joy to photograph the wedding of Witney and Matt, I could tell straight away that their love and friendship was the most important aspect of the day for them; to share that with their friends and family and to celebrate their love. We also had an absolutely beautiful Vineyard day and what a setting too; quaint Edgartown and the EYC. Everyone had a wonderful time and I don’t think I saw Witney or Matt without a smile on their faces all day long! Thank you all for letting me capture such a wonderful moment in your lives!!! Witney & Matt, I wish you love, friendship, gratitude and health in your marriage!

The Chmielewski Family 2019

The Chmielewski Family is back for another awesome Summer Family Portrait on MV and in our favorite spot!!! This year they had their cutest new addition in tow, Xander! He is so adorable and smiley, what a doll this little guy is, I shouldn't be surprised after getting to know his big sister Lauren over the past few years; she's not just super cute but super smart too! Thank you all for another great portrait session with your family, as always it was so nice to see you all!

The Wolozin Family 2019

Get ready for literally my longest Family blog post EVER! I just had to do it for this post, I left out a bunch of our traditional family must have shots "in loo" of the ones that really portray this family at it's finest. I love you guys! Seriously, and my mom wants to be adopted by you, which would make me kin by proxy, and you're the most fun photo shoot I have all year, every year! So here's to the wonderfully wacky, beautifully boisterous, honestly loving, and seriously cool Wolozin, and extended, Family and their latest and greatest addition Max!!!

The Kuehn & Hong Family 2019

Family is an amazing and cooperative effort of trust, love, compassion, co-inhabiting, compromise, and joy. It has many challenges as well as many unique and beautiful qualities when all of the individual personalities mesh with each other. After having my Son Northwilder I realized more than ever just how important family is, how sacred and intimate it is. Here is a great example of a beautiful family working together and loving each other, sharing the burdens and the joys that come with everyday life. Alice and Brant, the last time I saw you you had just joined your two families together in saying "I do", look at what you have created! An entirely new and wonderful and big beautiful family! Congratulations to you all, it was a pleasure to capture some of the love that you share.

The Dempsey Family 2019

The first time I photographed Patrick and Amanda was their wedding day on a blustery hurricane of a day on the Allen Farm, it was beautiful and so romantic. I captured a moment just as Amanda was done getting ready. She was holding Tabor's hand in the hallway of the old farm house, Tabor at the time was just a toddler, and they were both so beautiful holding on to each other with the quiet light coming in through the window next to them. Those two turned into these five and now they are a crazy beautiful family and Tabor starts Highschool this fall! It's so amazing to watch families grow and change and become, I am so blessed and so honored that my families choose me to document this amazing journey for them! Thank you Guys, it means so much to me!

The Joiner Family 2019

With Marlow, little Mac and a new baby on the way Chelsea and Grant sure do have their hands full of adorableness! The first time I photographed these two love birds we hiked Great Rock Bite with their two pups Molly & Mac, it was fun and a great little hike, since then I've had the pleasure of photographing Marlow and watching her grow! This year Mac was back as well as Chelsea's baby bump! I can't wait to meet the newest addition to this fun family and take another adventure hike with everyone! Good luck in the months to come and Happy Birth Happy Baby Happy Mama blessings!!!

The Linder Family 2019

It was such a pleasure to see these three again this Summer, and of course Grandma & Grandpa too! We couldn't catch eachother on the Island becasue we decided to go on vacation on the same week, so they were on Island and I was in Maine! LOL but we managed to squeeze in this great shoot Monday morning in Norwell, Ma at The Jackson Family home. I'm so excited for all of you and I can't wait to meet the newest addition to the family next Summer!!! Thanks for being awesome, as usual!

The Wolff family 2019

It's the Wolff Family and we're back to our favorite Portrait spot! Sheriffs Meadow in historic Edgartown, it's such a beautiful walk meandering through the woods with breaks to lookout over ponds and Ocean. We even had some Swans photo bomb us! The light in August, especially on this trail, is just remarkable and this year we went for an evening portrait, I think it's our best one yet! Thank you Wolff Clan for being always fun and kind, I look forward to your Family portrait so much every Summer!

The Tatro Family 2019

This year for the Tatro's Portrait we stole away to a little known gem of a landscape in Edgartown, I love this spot and the light couldn't have been better! The Tatro's are so sweet and some of my most laid back subjects, it is always a pleasure to photograph their family portrait! I especially loved Rachel's hair this year, as I too recently went "red", so fun! You guys were great as usual and it was so nice to see you all again!!!

The Littleton & Kimi Family 2019

What a fun morning photo shoot on Lamberts Cove Beach! We had a blast wrangling these 4 beautiful kiddos and acting like clowns to get them to smile for my camera, as you can see from these fun shots it was totally worth it! It was so great to see you all again this Summer and spend the morning on Lambert's Cove Beach with you! You were some pretty cool customers for having 4 tiny kiddos at the shoot! I hope to see you all again next Summer!

The Doherty Family 2019!

You will definitely recognize this adorable family! I have been photographing them since Big Brother Jack was just a Baby, but it all started with Brian and Julie's Wedding on the Vineyard a "few" years back. 😉 They are the cutest! Seriously! I love you guys!!!

Chrissy & Daniel's Edgartown Maternity Portrait...

You might recognize these two happy Love Birds from their engagement portrait back in 2016. I was lucky enough to be there snapping pics when Daniel popped the question and Chrissy said Yes! Well, an "I DO" and a few summers later and here we are with a baby on the way! I'm so excited for you both and I can't wait to meet your little peanut! I hope I get to post the first Frick Family Portrait up here on the blog next Summer!!!

Burke Family Portrait

The Burke Family Portrait was a blast, it was raining cats and dogs outside but we still managed to have fun and capture a bunch of great shots. This clan was so fun and easy going! Thank you all so much for being so great to photograph. I hope you all come back again next Summer!!!

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!

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
