One of my very favorite families, now in my 8th year of capturing memories for them! I just love watching them grow and mature behind my lens ♡
I have known Madi since before she was born, and she was the cutest little flower girl at our wedding ♡ And now *blink* she's unbelievably entering her senior year of high school! She has grown into a stunningly beautiful young woman, full of so much talent and poise, and I was honored to capture these photos for her! Love you Madi & fam ♡
In between these adventurous kiddos finding lots of fun stuff to climb during our session, we got lots of smiles, hugs, and moments to soak in the beauty of this breathtaking state park ♡
This family brought IT! I adored their stunning choice of outfits with a combo of rich, autumn tones, soft neutrals and eye-catching textures and patterns. So pretty! And pretty doesn't even begin to describe these gorgeous girls...they were so full of personality too and it really shone through the lens, I'm in love with these images! ♡
Lucky number SEVEN! I had the honor of capturing this gorgeous family for the seventh year in a row, I say this each year, but I have honestly loved documenting them each fall and seeing how much they change and grow. I truly look forward to their session every year, we had a lot of laughs (and a few tears) at this one but it was without a doubt memorable ♡
If I could describe little Oliver in just one word, it would have to be...delicious! He was everything and more that I love about newborns...sweet as can be, cute as a button, and oh so perfectly plump, and his lil' belly was just soooo squish-able too ♡ His mom, dad, and big sis Audrey are truly blessed!
Meet Olivia, 10 days new. She was so pretty in pink accents and ivory lace! I took her brother Grayson's newborn photos almost 3 years ago and it's always such an honor to photograph siblings ♡
I recently had the honor of capturing this beautiful extended family at Rocky Neck State Park. I absolutely loved the beach glass tones they chose to wear, they really suited the setting perfectly! ♡
Meet Clare, 9 days new! She is without a doubt the epitome of sugar and spice and everything nice...such a beautiful and sweet little one. It was touching to watch her daddy play his guitar for her, she was literally mesmerized by the music, I'm so honored to have been able to capture such a special moment ♡

Little Ethan is without a doubt a big blessing and a dream come true for his parents. Words cannot express how thrilled I am for my good friend, Melissa, to realize her dream of becoming a mother. She is already an amazing mom - a total natural - and Ethan is SO incredibly loved. You cannot help but fall in love with him - he was an absolute sweetheart and I can't wait to share more photos as he grows! ♡
Who says you can't hit the beach in the fall? Hole-in-the-Wall Beach was the perfect mix of autumn foliage and stunning water views. I had so much fun capturing this insanely adorable family! And I am obsessed with the golden hour light we got at the end ♡
Melissa and I have been friends since our junior year of high school, and I am over the moon excited for her to become a mom! Despite the gloomy skies during our session, she was positively glowing! I cannot wait to meet her sweet little one in a few short weeks and of course capture alllll the newborn cuteness!! ♡
Another year of memories with this gorgeous family! It has been amazing watching them grow over the years (I think this might be my 5th year of photographing them)! Plus, they are so much fun to work with! ♡
This was my second year capturing memories for this beautiful family, and golden hour light did not disappoint :-) I have done dozens of sessions at Harkness over the years, but never before in front of this old white barn/shed that caught our eye...it was the perfect backdrop though for these handsome boys and their dark blues ♡ I love finding new things!
I don't normally shoot mid-day because the light can be very harsh, but sometimes I will accommodate a family while there is still seasonal tree cover to coincide with nap schedules for very little ones. While shooting at golden hour is ideal and what most photographers strive for, it's not always feasible. Golden hour light is still without question my favorite, but I have to admit, I kind of love the warm, late summer glow the bright light gives these! ♡
