Menemsha Family Portrait!

It was so wonderful to see the Jackson - Linder Family again. I was lucky enough to photograph Pam and Nick's Baby shower over the winter season before this little cutie pie was born. Meeting him and seeing the family again on the Island was such a treat! Thank you Anne for making it all happen! I'm in love with this little beauty boy!

Abel's Hill Family Portrait...

The Finkelsteins are back for another great portrait Session on Abel's Hills. It was a picturesque evening on the beach. We had a cloudy stormy sky, a quick shower and an amazing sunset to work with as our backdrop for a beautiful family. Thank you guys for another great portrait session, and of course the ferry across Abel's pond!

Lighthouse Family Portrait...

You might recognize this adorable family from last Summer. Their little girl has grown so much and was the sweetest, smiliest little peach that I photographed all summer! Mostly due to her Uncle, "the baby wrangler", who helped make her smile the entire time. Thank you guys for a lovely morning at the Edgartown Lighthouse, I hope to see you all again next Summer!

We had a great shoot out on Tashmoo in Vineyard Haven, Tashmoo is one of my favorite spots on the Island, and getting there is not for the faint of heart; which makes it all the better.

Emma...

It's that time of year again when our future leaders are gearing up for their final year of High School. Emma, her Mom, and I had an awesome Senior Portrait shoot in Aquinnah on Moshup Beach. The overcast skies where perfect to bring out the colors in the Clay Cliffs and Emma's eyes. I love capturing the beauty, confidence and grace that exudes from teenagers when they're given the opportunity to bare it. Emma, thanks for being a wonderful subject, I had a blast working with you!

The Boccaccio's 2017!

The Boccaccio's and I had a blast running around on South Beach in Edgartown. Luckily we spent some time on the sand path and in the dunes because as soon as the littlest member of the family saw the Ocean he went straight for it! He's a fish for sure! It was such a pleasure working with you guys again again this year, and we managed to get some awesome photos before the wave dive! hehehe.
