FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How many images will I receive?  Each session is unique, so I don't set a number of images you will receive. An average session will usually yield approximately 10 images.

What should we wear? I suggest that you wear coordinating, but not necessarily matching colors. Shirts with graphic designs, logos or sayings are not advised. Choosing a color palate of 3-4 colors works well. Keep in mind the farm is very GREEN. Colors like maroon, plum, navy, grey work well. Wearing red (as seen above), can work well and gives an additional Christmas feel. Feel free to bring accessories like hats, scarves, or mittens. Usually, having some people in solid colors works well so that it's not a sea of patterns. Please do not wear a solid black top, as it makes for a "floating head" effect. Let me know if you need more help with figuring out what to wear. Here's a great blog post on the topic from Click it Up a Notch.

Can we bring our dog? Yes! Well behaved dogs are allowed on the farm, on leash only.

Will you have a "set"? I do bring a simple set for a few posed photos. My style tends to lean more towards lifestyle shots- I love capturing you interacting with your children!

What's the farm like? It's beautiful! It is a family owned, working Christmas tree farm. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Crane Beach Family Photos: The Annese Family

Late this summer, I met up with the Annese family at Crane Beach in Ipswich. It was fun to see the children again- they've grown so much since I saw them for their holiday photos last year! For beach mini sessions, I like to do some casual posed photos at the beginning, and then let the kids play. It makes for a relaxed family photo session, and tends to capture some sweet moments!

Crane Beach Family Photos: The Colellas

The Colellas are an incredibly kind family. Their son, Carlo, is so smart and has a great sense of humor! We had so much fun together at Crane Beach in Ipswich. Being a mom, I know family photo sessions can be stressful; I'm there to help alleviate the stress and make things fun!

The Kochicks

Kim and I met when our daughters were in dance together. We would wait in a small, alley like room for an hour and talk with each other and the other moms. We've kept in touch since then, and I was excited when she booked a beach mini session with me. Crane Beach in Ipswich is a beautiful spot for a family photo session. Great seeing you, Kim and family!

Colby and Antares

When Devan contacted me to photograph her horses, I was so excited. I rode horses as a child, but haven't been around them much since. We started with Colby, a sweet 18 year old horse, 16.2 hands tall. Then, Devan brought out 1,600 pound, 18 hand Atares. Wow! Such strength! It was sweet to see Devan and her boyfriend, Josh, interact with these beautiful animals. Do you have a special pet you'd like included in your photo session? Just let me know!

If you're on Boston's North Shore and need someone to care for your dogs or horses, I encourage you to contact Devan's Canine and Equine Servces

Old Orchard Beach

Every year, my family spends a few days at Old Orchard Beach with my college roommate and her family. Coffee on the porch, days on the beach, late night talks, and our children becoming friends. It's a tradition we all cherish! This year, we decided to do a family photo shoot to the mix. This place is so special to this family; it was fun being able to capture some of that for them.

Tim & Lizzi

Tim and Lizzi started dating over ten years ago when they met in Switzerland. Their love is so sweet. You just need to see Tim look at Lizzi to know he is totally head over heels in love with her. They got married at a private property in Beverly, Massachusetts, next to the salt marsh. Rolling green hills, plants in bloom, and beautiful vistas... simply breathtaking! While the sun didn't come out for us, the rain did hold off, and the day was simply beautiful.

Tim and Lizzi, I wish you a long and happy life together! Thank you for the honor of capturing your wedding day. 

*special thanks to Kalvin Reynolds, who assisted me in photographing their wedding day

Eros

I'm a dog person. I always have been. So, you can imagine my delight when Melissa contacted me to do a welcome puppy photo session! At only 9 weeks old, this Bernese Mountain Dog really rocked the camera. It was very sweet to see his humans dote on him. Welcome to the world, sweet Eros! You have a fantastic home.
