Love Birds take the plunge!

I had a blast photographing these two love birds around the Light House in Edgartown, they are absolutely adorable together and I cannot wait to photograph their Wedding! They sealed the deal at the end of our session by "taking the plunge" together off of a local Edgartown dock and into the beautiful blue water. You guys are awesome! Thank so much for being so fun to photograph!!!

Menemsha Family Portrait…

Family time in Menemsha! I love photographing family portraits in Menemsha; so many awesome little vignettes and backdrops; lobsters, docks, the beach, shells, fishing boats... what more could you ask for? It also helped that this bunch was so fun to photograph and such awesome subjects; you might recognize them from our last family portrait; what a great family! Thank you guys for another awesome photoshoot! I hope to see you all again next year.

Stonewall Beach Portrait…

I had a blast in Chilmark photographing this great family. It's so fun to watch the children and the families grow with each Summer's portrait session. I love when families make a tradition of portraits and I am able to get to know them better with each passing year. Thank you all for a wonderful morning and being such great subjects! Until next time... I can't wait! :)

Beautiful Family…

You might recognize this adorable family from our previous family portraits and the wedding that started it all. I have had the pleasure of capturing their love grow into a wonderful family. These two little boys have quite the personalities and the 4 of us had a blast in the yard and then on the beach, we even got to have some big family fun and catch some shots of the newlyweds in the family. I can't wait to take photos of their little ones; hint, hint, lol. But seriously; It was a great day and I am a very lucky Gal! Thank you guys for allowing me to capture these awesome moments for you and your family! I can't wait until next year!!!

First off, I gotta say, I love this family; these boys are just so adorable and are the sweetest Brothers to eachother. They remind me of my little brothers when they were small; so much love and kinship between them. This cute clan showed me around Sheriffs Meadow sanctuary in Edgartown last week. The founder of the sanctuary and Sheriif's Meadow Foundtaion is non other than the youngest of this little clan's namesake! We had a blast running around on the paths and bridges that give way to beautiful vistas of ponds and the Atlantic beyond. What a great spot to photograph an awesome family! Thanks guys, I hope to see you all again next year!!!

Congratulations Mandy & Rob!!!

This pair of love birds was a pure delight to get to know and photograph, the love between them shined bright enough to clear the rainy skies and let the sun shine down on all of their guests before it set on their wedding day. It was a pleasure to witness and be part of such a wonderful day in their lives! Thank you Rob and Mandy for choosing me to be your photographer and share such a momentus event. I can't wait to see you two Love birds again; perhaps with a new addition in years to come.

Meet Peanut…

Well, almost! Remember Noodles? Noodles is now the adorable Abigail; patiently awaiting the arrival of her little Sibling known for now as "Peanut", aka baby bump. It was so great to see these two Love birds again in such an exciting time; awaiting their little peanut, surrounded by family and the loveliest of all; Abigail. I can't wait to meet Peanut next summer, under our Sunny Vineyard Skies.




The Stearns family…

You might remember this great looking bunch from the past few years of family portraits. It is always a blast and a pleasure to hang out and take pictures with the Stearns! I hope to see you guys soon!!! Scott & Al; come down to Nola!

Beth, Billy, West and Abe!

Not only was this family absolutely adorable but their home was picture perfect for family photos! I couldn't have asked for better. Just look at these little brothers; simply the cutest ever! Abe made his debut as a very happy, and a ham of a One year old, and just as photogenic is his big brother West! Thank you so much Terry for getting us all together for this wonderful photo shoot, I had a blast and it seems the whole family did too! I hope to see you all again soon!

Newborn Sofi…

Just look at this beautiful baby girl. I love love love Newborn portraits, and this portrait with Sofi and her parents was no exception. Have you ever seen a newborn that held her self up? This cutie patootie knows what she wants and is strong enough to get it! Watch out Mom and Dad, good thing she's a sweetheart.  ;)  Here she is; Sofi...

Congratulations Sara & James!!!

These two gorgeous love birds wed on a glorious fall day in Hyannis port. Surrounded by family and friends they laughed and loved and said "I do". Once happily married Sara and James danced and feasted along with their guests to their hearts content, what a great day and a beautiful couple! I am so glad that I was able to be a part of such a wonderful day!!!

Congratulations Katheleen & John!!!

Last week's storm might have forced us all to change our plans and stay inside, but no matter how much the wind howled and the rain fell it couldn't keep these two love birds from saying "I Do" and committing their lives and love to one another. With only the most important people as witnesses these two love birds got married, not on the beach in front of the light house but in their own home in front of a beautiful painting of the lighthouse, it was perfect. Thank you Katheleen and John for allowing us to photograph your most amazing of moments!

Congratulations Jacqueline & Seth!!!

 These two love birds are a perfect pair, and they proved it this past weekend in their grace of overcoming the forces of nature and a complete change of plans to create one of the most memorable and beautiful weddings I have witnessed! Surrounded by love, friends and family, Jacqueline and Seth promised to be each other's shelter in love and life while the wind whipped over us in our own unique ceremonial shelter on Edgartown Harbor. When you have Love and support from loved ones around you the weather is nothing but a fun challenge, and for a photographer; a romantic backdrop. You might recognize J & S from their engagement portrait we did out on Lambert's Cove about a year ago; they're even more adorable now! Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of such a wonderful day and celebration of love. I hope to see you both again soon.

Three's Company!

That's right; three is better than one so why not a three family photo session! We had a blast playing at the beach and dock at Owen Park in Vineyard Haven, and it was so wonderful to see the Reynold's and the Solo's again with their new additions! I hope to see you all again next year!!!

Congratulations Sarah & Taylor!!!

I can't express enough how amazing it is to photograph two people in love on their wedding day, it's phenomenal, I am so lucky! Sarah and Taylor brought tears to my eyes at their first look with their affection for one another and their excitement and almost disbelief at the thought of marrying one another. It was a beautiful wedding day surrounded by love, family and friends! Thank you so much Sarah & Taylor for letting me be a part of your day, and to the Ives family; it was so great to see you all again!
