Love "Rains" Supreme- Crane Estate Wedding in Ipswich MA

I'll admit, I've observed some over-the-top luxury at some of the weddings that I've photographed-- and wondered "Am I FABULOUS enough to mingle at this wedding?" But I've never wondered if I was CREATIVE enough for the crowd-- until Trish and Bill's fabulous wedding at T he Barn at the Crane Estate, in Ipswich, MA. Trish and Bill are deeply in lov...

Senior, or Supermodel? Plum Island Beach Senior Session

I love it when I'm shooting a high school senior and a supermodel shows up at the end. OK, it's never happened before, but there's a first time for everything! This is A., toward the end of her shoot. The surfboard is more than just a mere prop-- she's the real deal. It was clear to me that her athleticism is even more impressive than her jaw-drop...

Newburyport Senior Portrait- Sarah

What I love about Newburyport is that there are so many places to shoot. Sarah did not want the beach, and I love that she knew that! We found the perfect place to shoot and Sarah looks beyond lovely in all of her photos. Of course, I have my favorites, but I'm not sure I could narrow it down much farther than these. It turns out that I love shoot...

Newburyport Senior Portrait

Adam's personality will hopefully help him in life, and thank goodness, because with a face like this... JUST KIDDING! Yes, he is very handsome. But his personality is so charming that it overshadows his looks. I don't believe myself either, but it happens to be true. We shot in Newburyport for a brick and stone sort of urban thing, and then mov...

She made me channel every wise (older) woman in my family, as I kept sighing at the sheer beauty. What a joy. And after getting to know her just a little bit, I am confident saying that her most beautiful aspec...

Commercial Editorial Photography at Newburyport Olive Oil Company

Karen and Katie are the (newish) owners of the Newburyport Olive Oil Company, and the delicious new kitchen boutique next door, Port Plums. I loved spending some time with them recently, capturing some promotional imagery for their website. I've yet to mention the shop to a Newburyporter without hearing "Oooh, I love that place!" In addition to the...

Oh Baby!

With my job, I celebrate love every day. I may be photographing a dewy bride as she dances with her groom, or a mother and daughter in the store they just opened together. I ask you- is there any better way to celebrate love than capturing a newborn as she is doted upon by her dazzled family? Here is one little nugget, in the arms of her gorgeous p...

Hawthorne Hotel Weddings

The Hawthorne Hotel in Salem, Massachusetts has always been a favorite of mine. Love the history, love the Common right next door, love the ballroom. It was last weekend's snow that got me thinking about the last snowy wedding I shot there. Sigh. It's not feeling as cozy as these two made it look that night.
