Paint night

These girls had a blast at this session, getting to paint in the park and make a mess. Who wouldn't love that? We were running late and at the end ran out of light, so we pulled their truck down into the field and used the headlights for some fun shots!  The girls didn't want me to leave and i feel the same way about them - till next time girls! Love you max, xo.

All images shot on film with Portra 400, or Ilford HP5 for black and whites.

welcome, baby k

i love photographing newborn babies.  the newness, the squishy-ness, swaddles like a burrito, mom and dad discovering their new baby together, baby feet !!, big sister adapting and helping out, pretending their dolls are their new babies. I love getting it all on camera, and being able to give the parents reminders of what those early times were like. because really, who can remember. i am still in a fog, myself.  This session is a special one to me.  We love you, baby K!

cape cod

Our annual summer family vaca with our BFFs. This time we chose the (long) drive to Cape Cod.  Despite the shark sightings (!) the beaches were absolutely beautiful, and I could have spent all day in the cool ocean water.  The kids had a blast...  catching sea life, mini golf, outdoor karaoke, evening harbor dance lessons, visiting lighthouses, but they have the best time just being together.  A fun summer 2015.. here's to next year! 

All pictures on film with a mix of stocks. Canon EOS3, and a Holga for fun :)

Montauk on film

I knew i'd have my hands full on this vacation with a 6 week old, so I took a leap and left my  digital camera at home.   Took only a 35mm film camera and a few rolls of film.  I don't have hundreds of photos to show for the trip, instead i have a handful that i love.  

This post has been another installment of the Film Mama monthly blog, so now head on over to Lauren Mitchell photography to see her post of the month!

New man in the house

Right from the start of our photo shoot, this little guy was calm and alert, looking straight at me. His mom and i agreed he is an old soul. :)  Big sis was such a cutie too, and who wouldn't love a princess room like that?  Congratulations to this beautiful family on the addition of this little man, he will be well-loved for sure! 

Field of dreams and dress up

First, i headed out incognito...with my 8+ month pregnant belly, yankee hat and sunglasses, (no one noticed me at all) to take some shots at this little guy's T-ball game where dad was the coach, and mom wanted to give him the gift of photographs with his son. Then... back to their house for some play time with little sis.  They love their dress up and had so much together at this shoot, with lots of laughter and giggles. 

party of 5

This session is near and dear to my heart, since it's not often that you get to photograph your best friend's baby, let alone her third baby!  What a lucky little man to have these two as parents and to be born with two big brothers!   Can't wait to see the special bond they share as they grow up.  I was so honored to be there to capture these special moments for them.  Love you guys. xoxo  

little man in the park

The best sessions are the ones where the families are relaxed, in love with eachother, and HAPPY.  And this session definitely fit that bill.  I first photographed this adorable little boy when he was a guest at a friend's birthday party -- I was in love with his little face and scrunchy-nose-smiley-face (the same one my own son does!) from the start.
