Best of 2014

I feel so fortunate to be able to compile this post, because it not only reflects the truly wonderful clients I have but gives me a snapshot of all the sessions I covered this year (Something I am proud of this year? I photographed a wedding! That's not really an area that I have had any interest in pursuing, but had so much fun working with Matt & Amy on their intimate ceremony and reception!) and an opportunity to review how things are going for me personally and maybe what needs to be tweaked and changed in my approaches and techniques for sessions heading into the New Year.  One thing is for sure - it's going to be a busy one, both personally and professionally! Wishing all of my clients and those I have yet to meet a wonderful and safe season celebrating with family and friends and greeting 2015 with HOPE.

Yuen Rhoads Family

The first time I ever met and photographed these two tots, they were a week old, calmly napping in their car seats in their apartment, while their mama, Lisa, raced around the kitchen whipping out warm croissants for me, brewing fresh coffee on the stove, and asking if there was anything I needed. Fast forward two years, and apart from their never-ending energy and ability to move at lightning speed, I still arrive to what Lisa would consider a disaster zone and I would instead call organized chaos for parents of twin toddlers. We've known this family for two years now (Kevin is credited with transforming Curt's golf game!) and even gatherings outside of a photo session are just so much fun. This was an hour and a bit of outdoor insanity in the best way, the kind of summer weather that makes you forget it was ever 100 below anything a few months ago, and a family who is gorgeous inside and out.

P:S: Lisa is a really amazing actress (we've seen her in The Putnam County Spelling Bee and Into The Woods) and you can see her performing in Sweeney Todd at The Lyric Theatre in Boston.
