Christmas Card 2017…each year I’ve tried to come up with something new and better than the year before. I wanted to do something beautiful AND clever, leaving the composited polar bear and photoshopped reindeer behind. About 5 years ago I did a retro shoot for The Measure and had this gorgeous 1964 Mercury Comet as a prop, thanks to my wonderful neighbor who was kind enough to let me use it. I knew at some point I would want to use it for a personal shoot but for the past couple of years I just couldn’t make it happen. On my way to scout a farm location I passed by this old diner, put it in my mental rolodex for a future shoot and kept driving. Knowing that I was using the car for this year’s holiday card it was a no brainer that the diner would be the perfect backdrop.  The boys’ outfits were already purchased and it was serendipitous that it all coordinated with the Star Drive-in sign.  All my anxiety about having it make sense, be clever and look great was all for naught. In my eyes, it couldn’t have turned out any better. Proud mama here! People have asked if I’m already thinking of next year’s card–YES! Yes I am! I figure I only have a handful of years that the kids will humor me with these shoots so I am going to take advantage of it as long as I can!

And the printed card…it took me two days to come up with the wording!!  Was it going to be simply “Have a good old fashioned Christmas”? Nope. Not when you have Comet, the name of one of Santa’s reindeer, to play with 😉

Until next year……

    Jennifer Smith - No words! Superb family session! Priceless moments

My uncle is a professional photographer in NY so whenit was time for me to have my senior portraits done I headed down to Long Island with my best friend to to have them taken. I look back at those photos and in comparison to how they are done now it’s almost comical just how different our approach was back then. Not to mention just how gorgeous and put together girls are today. Looking back at my huge permed hair with horrible bangs and a corderoy collared shirt buttoned up to the very top??  Cringe.  How did girls become so in tune with beauty and fashion?  There is no way they could ever look back at their high school photos and facepalm like I do.  How many of you 90’s kids rocked that Champion sweatshirt with a turtleneck underneath?  Or the pegged pants and scrunched down socks? Shudder. All kidding aside, these images are simple and beautiful.  A breath of fresh air.  If you are on the South Shore/Plymouth County area and are still looking for a senior portrait photographer please reach out anytime.  My senior portrait sessions are offered as mini sessions.  Book with a friend and I’ll give you a special deal!  Email or call anytime for details!

What I’ve come to learn and love about the beach is that everytime I go the landscape in and of itself is ever changing.  No two beach sessions look alike because of tide — how the higher water line bring up rocks or seaweed– the sunsets, clouds, light and in this case FOG!  When I drove off the exit it was sunny with beautiful fluffy white clouds.  As soon as I got about a half mile from the beach you could see the wall of fog.  This was not like the fog I had experienced the previous week which was much darker and very wet and not camera friendly.  This was like an bright etheral blanket of fog that eminated a pink hue that was sort of unworldly.  I said then that it was etheral and felt it was apropos considering that my client is a spirit medium! Even the loads of seaweed which I don’t care for imparted this stormy “swept ashore” look for her and her twins.  The shots at the end have such a timeless and mystical feel to them.

Enjoy!

xoxo

Sunsets, like childhood, are viewed with wonder. Not because they are beautiful but because they are fleeting.” – R.P. Evans

They are something that we see so often but often take our breath away like it’s the first time we are experiencing them. I’ve reveled in so many with my children that they too have become so enraptured when seeing a gorgeous showcase in the sky.  Excitedly yelling from our piano room that faces west, “Mom, you’ve GOT to see the colors of the sunset!” And we quickly jump into my car to head to the lake to take photos that will never, ever do the sky justice. And just like that, it’s gone.

I will definitely hold tight to these last days of summer.  I will enjoy every single session spent on the beach with my clients, hoping that the clouds will give way to the most beautiful backdrop one could imagine.  I spent an evening last September with this couple and their beautiful baby girl, Charlotte. I would never have guessed that the perfect cloud covering giving us a swath of lovely white light would then completely change into deep, firey tones by the end of the night.

If you are looking to book family portraits outdoors before the weather gets too cold, I have availability at the end of September as well as some October dates as well.  As I have mentioned I typically shoot on the beach til mid-October or as weather permits!  Call or email for details!

Enjoy!

xoxo
