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!!!

Baby Bump Love...

It was such a pleasure to photograph these two Love Birds out on Makonikey last week! They are expecting their first little bundle of joy late this Summer and so excited! I have to say that it was extra wonderful for me to photograph their Maternity Portrait because I too am expecting my first in Autumn, it just brought a whole new special life to the art, knowing what it's like to be "expecting". Thank you both for choosing me to capture such an exciting and wondrous time in your lives!

Congratulations Ashley & Mark!!!

What an amazing weekend of Love, Friends & Family to celebrate the Marriage of this Gorgeous Couple, Ashley & Mark. Within a picturesque Barn, nestled into the rolling hills of Chilmark, we heard countless stories of the wonderful friendships and love Ashley and Mark have created within their lives thus far while dining on lobster and Chilmark Chocolates. It was a beautiful night only to be topped by the Wedding Day in Historic Edgartown. These Love Birds spoke their vows in the Whaling Church to the sound of rain on the brick sidewalks, before enjoying a festive cocktail hour at the Fisher House with a traditional Chinese Lion Dance performance. We ended the night on the harbor, in the Edgartown Yacht Club, where we Dined and Danced the night away! Thank you Ashley and Mark for being so wonderful and including me in capturing your amazing day! I wish you all the happiness that life can bring!
