Bridgette & Mike | Olana State Historic Site: Hudson, New York - Engagement Session

If you follow my Instagram you may already know that my sister is getting married!!! While Bridgette is technically my husband’s sister, making her officially my sister-in-law, since the moment we met she’s been the sister I never had. From road tripping to Florida, watching her graduate from college, bar-hopping, hanging out and finding the best places to eat, to now watching her be the most amazing Aunt to our daughter - I simply can’t imagine life without her. And now she can’t imagine life without Mike!

By this time next year these two will officially be Mr. & Mrs. and I couldn’t be happier for them. Aside from just being thrilled to have watched their love story blossom from the very beginning, it’s also been a huge privilege to have been trusted with capturing some of the milestones along the way.

Kelly & Stephen | Lighthouse Point Park Engagement Session

We had to reschedule this session…. two times? Maybe? I felt bad every time we touched base and made the decision to call it and hold out for better weather. I mean, it’s New England and we’ve got to roll with Mother Nature’s punches, but I was crossing my fingers the day we ended up getting together that the stars would align and give these two the best weather. And align they did.

Kelly and Stephen, you guys are awesome. An absolute blast to be around and the smiles you bring out in one another are making me smiling just writing this.

Looking forward to your 2020 wedding! Thanks for asking me tell your story.

Jonathan Edwards Winery Event

You know how there’s a large part of the population who would likely tell you “I hate surprises,” when asked?

Well, I discovered that it’s because no one has been surprised with a birthday party amongst the vines at Jonathan Edwards Winery before. If everyone had experienced this kind of surprise I think we would be able to change the stigma around the dreaded word “Surprise!”.

Julie & Tom | Great River Golf Club Summer Wedding

Going into this wedding weekend I had my fingers AND toes crossed for beautiful weather for this sweet couple - and mother nature certainly did not disappoint. Between blue skies and comfortable temps for the guests to enjoy a gorgeous outdoor ceremony at Great River Golf Club, this was the kind of day couples dream about.

Julie and Tom spoke their vows in front of cherished friends and family and I’m pretty certain there wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd. Every detail was beautifully planned and as soon as the day began I could immediately tell they were both just excited to relax and enjoy the festivities.

Personal Branding | Tara with Rodan & Fields

You know when you meet someone and think - they’re just so genuine?

I think that word sums up Tara best. Full of life and grace, a beautiful spirit, fiercely compassionate with a thirst for knowledge and understanding - I’m grateful to have met her and to have had the honor of getting to know her. And especially stoked to give her images showcasing her personality, priorities and her journey in business with Rodan & Fields.

Baby Girl & The Longest Week of My Life

I remember the weekend like it just happened. My husband was, at the time, working in Hawaii. On Friday night I drove to a wedding in upstate New York (then back to Connecticut that night) and left for a family session in New Hampshire early Saturday morning, followed by another family session in CT for sunset that evening (you can see that session here - one of my faves!), and then the next day a commercial photoshoot. It was busy and I remember thinking a couple of times “I feel real weird.” Long story short, it was that weekend I realized I was pregnant. And I couldn’t tell my husband for a week.

It's a BABY!

For several weeks before we found out the gender of our precious little one, scheduled to join us sometime in early June, anytime someone would ask me if I had any inclination of what “it” was I would make the *super lame* joke, “Definitely a human?”

I feel like most people talk about dad jokes… I’m totally going to make mom jokes a thing.

James & Ashley | Waikiki, Hawai'i

I had been dreaming of a session like this since the moment we found out my husband Andrew would be working on Oahu - only problem was, I hadn’t met anyone who lived in Hawai’i yet. Minor detail, right?

Little did I know I would get to meet and photograph Ashley & James, or that we would have as much fun as we did, or that the session would end up being one of my absolute favorites ever.

Coastal Fairytale Wedding | Mystic, Connecticut

This styled shoot features a married couple madly in love at the unique venue The Meadows, tucked away like the Secret Garden in Mystic, Connecticut. The shoot was centered around the theme of my wedding packages: “Your Love is My Lighthouse.” Styling for the shoot, including design of the invitation suite and fabric accents were created by myself and a local designer.

Everything about this couple’s wedding day is focused around the belief that love doesn’t have to be extravagant, it just has to be enduring, simple and true. In a place woven with history of sea merchants and sailors tales, a modern day coastal wedding means embracing the history of the past with nautical ropes, handcrafted rose gold jewelry, and starfish on your wedding cake. Where rainy days don’t exclude you from wedding portraits on the beach, and embracing nautical doesn’t mean your dress can’t have countless layers of tulle.
