Until Next Year Summer...

Well as usual, summer was wayyyy too fast! I photographed a ton of great events in Downtown Somerville this year and it was tons of fun! I love talking to people enjoying out cute little downtown that I've become so proud of. Here are some of my favorite snaps from the summer!

The Downtown Somerville Alliance asked me to take some cute and unique photos for marketing use and this is my favorite one is shot! the planters on Division are new this year and I'm hoping they return next year too!

I really enjoyed phtograhed the Summer Stages on Divisoon as well. The bands they pick every year are perfect outdoor summer music and give a great sense of rlaxation and enjoyment. Although i didn't get to photograph all 6 of them, here are a few of The Rollbacks and Busse & the Vibes!

And of course we can't forget about CRUISE NIGHT! Fridays becoming the craziest night of the week as Main Street fills up with vintage cruisers and hot rods. It's really a sight to see, the car are all unique and gorgeous and they encourage getting a close up look while everyone leaves their hoods up! You can also stop by one of Main Streets many restaurants and make a night out of it!

It's June Already???

Hi everyone!

I wanted to make a post updating everyone on the crazy spring I had and let you know what's coming up! This spring has been one of my favorite yet, I announced a new Mommy & Me Mother's Day Special that lead to some really adorable photos! Here's some from two of my favorite session!

And did I mention these sessions came with the cutest photo lockets? (I probably did because I'm in love with these lockets! haha!)

I also did a bunch of Communion Sessions this spring! I love photographing kids who are making their communion because they always look so beautiful and angelic in their dresses & veils or little suits!
These photos of the lovely Ava were taken at Fiddler's Elbow Country Club! The grounds there are gorgeous and we got there just in time for the tulips!

Lastly I'm hoping to do a pet session special this summer! It's still in the works but we're looking at special sessions for your furry family members! We're even trying to get a shelter in on the action as a way to give back. The sessions would be available all summer long and be available at my studio or on location.

There's so many exciting things coming up! If you have any questions about anything going on this summer let me know! I'm always happy to talk :)

Happy Summer and see you soon!

Need the Perfect Valentine's Day Gift?

Valentine's Day is almost here! There's a lot of options for gift out there, jewelry, flowers, candy, but if you want a gift that will be unique, thoughtful, and surprising then why not give the gift of memories?

You're going to look good for your session so why not? After your session go out to dinner or lunch then even a movie or walk around town! The possibilities to make this even more special are endless!
