A well deserved congratulations goes out to this young couple. You may recognize the bride-to-be because she is my wedding and office assistant Melinda. I met Chris, her fiance for the first time and am so happy because he’s a really sweet gentle kind of guy, or at least with her. He’s probably a lot more tough when he’s on the football field. I also want to wish a whole hearted good luck to Chris. He’s waiting for the NFL draft, as an upcoming prospect.
This first shot is titled Tying the Knot. It’s a good example of my mode of working. I like my photography to be artistic with creative meanings behind them. This is also part of a greater body of work that I’m putting together. It consists of engagement sessions in Boston Hot Spots. This time we shot in the historic North End.
You may notice in the second shot, the couple is standing between a strong and compelling statue of Paul Revere spreading his message on a midnight ride, and an old church steeple. I felt it an appropriate metaphor for the shot. Also don’t forget…. spring is coming, schedule your own engagement session today.

Our traveling studio just had another photo shoot. Our shooting space was a little tight but we were still able to get two locations to shoot in. I was really happy about the flowers for the background, they looked really great with the red vase and green table. This beautiful little baby is 5 months old now. Her and her Mom were very charming and a pleasure to photograph. Here are my favorites from the shoot.

Our Traveling Studio is back at it again. We are currently in the process of creating a new website designed strictly for portraits. In this process I’ve been talking with a lot of Moms and Dads about their experiences in portrait studios. What I’ve learned is that our Traveling Studio allows us to make sure we get a good photo. How do we do it? Well, it’s not magic.
1. Children are often most comfortable at their home, this allows us a better chance to get that winning smile.
2. There’s no waiting in line like you would at a portrait studio in the mall or Babies-R-Us. We can come to your home after the baby’s nap or when is most convenient for you.
3. Flexibility. If for some reason the baby didn’t sleep well that night or didn’t nap that morning, you can always call us and push the time of the portrait session back an hour or two.
4. The backgrounds are unique. We bring with us standard backgrounds that you’ll find at a portrait studio but usually prefer to use the natural setting of your home. The background in the second photo, is simply the blanket from the crib bedding. These photos are examples of what it can look like.
The bottom line is that we will make sure you get a great photo of your child.

We’re back! Our trip to the Bay area was awesome. It was so nice to get away from the winter wind, and back just in time for St. Patrick’s day. While on the left coast, I photographed baby Chase’s 2nd birthday party at the Fire station. Even though the kids loved it, I think the parents liked it more : ) Here are the photo highlights.
