Springfield, MA / Forest Park / Sheila & Marquis Engagement Session

Sheila & Marquis came to me through a referral site I use on the internet called Thumbtack.  It was a true blessing to meet them both because they honestly give me the best laughs possible and are such a sweet couple.  I truly can’t wait for the wedding.  They also bring Sheila’s dad to all the meetings we have had and he was my light helper at our recent engagement session.  Thanks Dad for working with me! You were a trouper.  And to Sheila’s sister and boyfriend, you helped as well carrying “my stuff”.  Thank you , thank you!!! I hope you all had fun as well and learned a thing or two:)

Sturbridge, MA / Old Sturbridge Village / Engagement Session Katie & Drew

Katie & Drew set up their engagement session for April 27th assuming it would be bright , colorful and warm.  Isn’t it warm in almost May in New England? Our date was a little on the cool side with minimal color due to the late spring this year.  We chose a location that color wouldn’t make a huge difference.  Kate and Drew picked Old Sturbridge Village which is a personal favorite of mine.  I was so excited to photograph in a place I loved with a wonderful couple.  We spent a couple hours walking around the village and stopping to play and create when the mood struck us.  Katie and Drew danced in the field, chopped wood and even recreated a famous country classic image.  They ended in a favorite building of Drew’s with wonderful window light. A truly romantic spot to end our day! Drew’s grandmother worked in the village so this location was a perfect choice to tell their love story.  They were an amazing couple to photograph with such spunk and vitality and obviously very much in love.  It was pure pleasure working with them.  I can’t wait for the wedding.2014-04-28_0001IMG_0004IMG_00242014-04-28_0003IMG_0206IMG_0066IMG_0078IMG_0048IMG_0046IMG_00442014-04-28_0001IMG_0096BIMG_01062014-04-28_0007IMG_0195IMG_0196IMG_0197IMG_00422014-04-28_0009IMG_0207IMG_0221CIMG_0211IMG_0218IMG_3965

A Mix of Glamour & Boudoir Photography

I was recently asked to photograph a bridal boudoir session.  It seems to be an up and coming trend in wedding photography.  As always, I replied absolutely, yes,  to photograph in a manner which was relatively new to me.  I am always looking for ways to experiment with light, different styles of photography and various subjects.  This was just another one of those opportunities to do just that. I thoroughly enjoy photographing women.  I love the feeling of empowerment they gain from looking and feeling beautiful in their images.  It does my heart glad to be able to offer my art in this manner.IMG_0045-EditCIMG_0029CIMG_0080HBCIMG_0059-EditBW2014-04-10_0002IMG_0126CIMG_0082IMG_0036B
