We were looking at the forecast and my heart sank when I saw that there were going to be wind gusts of 40-50mph. Boston was going to be under a wind advisory when Michael and I were flying in for an engagement session. I’ve said it before, but WIND is almost worse than RAIN! Wind is very hard to control while rain can be combatted with a cute porch, a classic black umbrella and some Hunter boots! There isn’t a lot that you can do to control WIND and so that is why this session is so amazing! We shot this entire session in between wind gusts AND with a very high-energy puppy….
The other crazy thing was that we were shooting on a college campus and because their sweet pup is such a unique Husky-mix, everyone and their brother had to stop and say hi to him! He really was quite the campus celebrity for the two hours that we were there!! Despite the challenges, this shoot was a blast! If we are going to walk around on a chilly day with intense wind gusts, we want to be with a couple like Dan and Melanie!!!
Dan and Melanie are so relaxed, up for anything and they trusted me. It’s hard enough to feel comfortable having your pictures taken in normal situations, but these two made it easy even in the midst of a crowded campus, keeping up with a puppy and dealing with wind!
If you’ve been a long time blog follower, you may think that Melanie looks familiar and that’s because you’ve seen her on the blog before! She’s the sister of one of our past KJ Brides and it’s such an HONOR to be a part of another celebration within this family! Michael and I will be traveling up to Boston in FEBRUARY for their wedding and we’re hoping for beautiful light flurries, a fresh coat of snow but no blizzard conditions. That’s not too much to ask, right?!
We can’t wait to see these two again! And GHOST (the pup!). He’ll hopefully be present for a few wedding portraits and so I’m glad he got a chance to practice during the engagement session! :) Enjoy my favorites from this Boston shoot!
Here it is! Post one of twelve! I’m committing, once again, to blogging my favorite images each month of Everett’s first year and I’m excited about it because I know from past experience that this is truly the BEST motivation and accountability to stay on top of family editing!!
It’s hard to believe I’m writing this… my fourth birth story in four years. I’ve given birth in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Just typing that makes me tired….. and so grateful…. unbelievably grateful. These last four years have been the best and hardest of my life. We cherish being parents and welcoming a new baby is hands down the most incredible thing we have ever experienced in our 18 years together. I’m so excited to introduce you to our newest member of our family and tell you the story of how he came into this world!
Whether you’re brand new to business or have been in business for quite a while, this brand new Youtube video is for you! Michael and I, early on in our business, struggled to relinquish tasks to other professionals outside of our business. Really…. It was more of MY STRUGGLE than his.
Welcome to December’s Student Spotlight!! It’s a new month and we have new photographers to celebrate!! I’m so thankful for them and for their willingness to give of their time and share their stories!!!
This shoot was supposed to happen about a month earlier on the exact day that leftover rains from a hurricane swept through Washington. I’m so thankful we rescheduled! Our reschedule date was absolute perfection! The temperature, the glow, the locations…. it was beautiful! Tyler and Abby’s outfit choices were wonderful and the leaves were full of color and still hanging on the trees.
When Michael and I were in our early years of dating, I would go on trips with his family for Thanksgiving and summer trips to West Virginia and I spent time with his cousins! “Bri-Bri” was so little! He’s the youngest of all of the cousins and it’s crazy to think that he’s old enough to be getting MARRIED! He’s actually older than we were when we got married!! We have known Shannon for years and we were THRILLED when we heard that Brian had proposed because we always hoped that would happen!!!
