Sheraton Wakefield

When I was planning my next set of mini sessions I thought for sure that by 11/20 we would need to be inside so I chose the Sheraton lobby for my location.  This place really is perfect since there is a tree decorated for christmasy photos but we can also easily go outside for natural light photos.

Here is session #1!  5 year old twins...couldn't be easier!

Tupper Manor Family Session

At a fundraising auction, this family was the lucky winner of a session with me!

Jamie and Frank's Wedding | Chocksett Inn, Sterling, MA

For some reason this post has given me such a hard time.  I can't seem to get all the images I want to share to align properly.  I know a lot of people have already viewed it in a not so pretty state and I feel so bad about that.  Rather than spend hours trying to fix it I'm just embedding a slideshow of all of my favorite images from the wedding which is more than I would have shared in a normal blog post so I guess you win in the end :-)

So let's try my commentary one more time...

I remember when I got the call confirming that Jamie and Frank wanted me to be their photographer.  I was on a playground with my kids during the fall of 2010.  As usual the wedding date seemed so far away!  At least I got to do their engagement session to tide me over.

November 5th was a beautiful day considering the are had been hit with a devastating snow storm a week prior.  The damage from this storm was worse than anything I had ever seen.  The amount of large trees and branches that were down was mind boggling.  Luckily the Chocksett Inn was up and running and was able to host a lovely and elegant wedding.

What I loved the most was how this family made me feel like a part of the family.  There is nothing nicer than that.  Now I can't wait for babies!!!

Appleton Farm | Ipswich, MA

This session is still one of my favorites.  You know, where all of my other sessions are a 10 this is a 10.5.

the legitimate fox hunt that went by us with about 20 hound dogs and easily 100 know, the usual.  Just a normal day at Appleton Farm

I'm not sure what mom ended up using for a holiday card but this would have been one of my top picks

I can't wait to see this family again!!

Frost Farm | Derry New Hampshire

This little man made me work really hard.  Kids are usually shy in the beginning but I almost always win them over in the end.  This was not the case this day.  He just didn't like me.  So I kept my distance and put my 70-200 to good use.

Mom is expecting baby number 2 so we used this time to get some maternity shots as well.
