Oh, Maddie Cakes… One of the benefits of having to go to NY for Janet & Brian’s engagement shoot is that we got to spend the weekend with Russ, Jordie, and scrumptious little Madeline. Although we’ve Skyped with them over the last several months, Maddie has grown up a lot since her visit to us in the fall. We thought it would be impossible that she’s actually gotten cuter, but we were wrong; she has. She is still so animated and happy – I could photograph her for hours. But I have to stop so I can give her kisses!
Here she is in her beautiful French dress for her pre-first birthday session:
And I had to do another collage of her amazingly cute faces… Choosing which ones made it was not easy…
More photos of Maddie Cakes to come from her shoot with cousin Noah!

Janet and Brian are getting married in Cohasset, MA this fall. While I’m in Boston a lot (for fun and work), I haven’t – well, hadn’t – yet gotten the chance to do a shoot in NYC. Luckily, this duo met and lives in the city, and it was very important to them to have engagement photos done there before their Massachusetts nuptials. Yay for a trip to NY!
We hit up many city highlights – Grand Central (would’ve been nice to have hired extras to create a bustling but unobtrusive scene instead of actual busy commuters who couldn’t have cared less about our shoot, but it was fun!), Central Park’s Bethesda Fountain, the Met (closed Mondays, hmph), the street where Janet lived when they met, their neighborhood (Tribeca) and many other little spots. We could’ve shot for days… Here are some of my favorites:
Congratulations to Janet and Brian! Thank you for a great, whirlwind NYC shoot (and for giving us a reason to take a trip to New York!), and see you in MA in October!!
I’ve been waiting to photograph Owen since before he was even born. Seeing as his parents, my sister’s friend Amy and her husband Rob, live in Washington, DC, I wasn’t sure when it would happen! Luckily, we were in Annapolis for Chris and Sarah’s wedding, so I finally got to meet and photograph beautiful, sweet, mini 4-month-old Owen, one of the cutest babies I’ve ever laid eyes on:
The boy is so edible and so loved:
Mmm, tiny feet!!

Sophia just turned 5 (happy belated birthday!), so we celebrated with a shoot to capture her gorgeousness and how grown up she is!
Of course, she had to do some twirling to show off her pretty dress!
And this pose just kills me:
Beautiful mother and daughter:

Another post from the Cleveland shoots… The weather went from cold and rainy at the beginning of the trip to hot and muggy for this session! We walked around the great nature preserve by their house and had some fun in the wilderness. Both Ari (who was having his third birthday party later that day) and Chase were a blast to photograph. Ari kept me on my toes, running after him and bargaining for some semi-still shots, and Chase just sat and smiled. Both made for fun photos!

Our good friends Chris and Sarah are officially married after an awesome wedding weekend in Annapolis, MD. Almost all of the guests came in from out of town (or out of the country!), so it was full-on vacation mode for everyone. And since people had the days leading up to the wedding to hang out and get to know each other, there was a relaxed, loving, happy vibe on wedding day – and everyone was ready to party (as is evidenced by the photos)! The wedding was held at Sarah’s grandmother’s beautiful estate on the water, they had a friend officiate (and photograph – that’s me!), Sarah’s aunt and uncle serenaded the couple, and the custom mix Chris and Sarah created for the dance party had everyone on their feet until the very last minute. All in all, a great, intimate party for two people who couldn’t be more perfectly matched.
Here are some highlights from the day…

I love this crew. After last February’s session, I was excited to photograph them again. Tommy’s all grown up now at 18 months (and crazy cute), Ava (happy belated birthday, Ava!) and Sophia are as sweet as ever, and we finally got dad Anthony in some photos! (And I am obsessed with the clothes Cassie picks out for the kids – OBSESSED.)
These three are too much… Ava laughing at something silly she drew in her diary, Sophia showing off her modeling skills in their little playhouse, and Tommy giggling at his big sisters.
A couple more of my favorite semi-candids:

He’s expecting a little sibling any day now! Kari’s staying in great shaping keeping up with this one – always on the move. I think he climbed 300 stairs during our session.
“Out of my way, guys!”:
He did pause to watch the geese and check out some rocks with his dad:
Handsome, happy boy!
Excited to meet you when you emerge, little one!
Let’s hope Nolan can sit still for me to snap a few photos with the baby…
And happy anniversary to Kari & Kevin!
