I had the pleasure of photographing this family last August. What was supposed to be a  Motherhood portrait mini session in May turned into rescheduled full session. I was so happy that we had a beautiful day and location where their family has a home. From start to beginning it was utterly seamless–until I went backwards in the water with a camera in each hand. Luckily it wasn’t too deep and my cameras were safe. If you’ve shot with me before you know I can get a little overexcited and don’t always keep an eye on where I’m walking/running/etc. Totally worth it, embarassment and all. 

Summer beach sessions are quickly starting to book up. If you are interested in having a family beach portrait session like this, please reach out so we can discuss details and possible dates. I look forward to it!

    Amanda Peckham - I found you on Instagram through Mel Mahoney. I was curious how much you charge for both maternity and newborn shoots. I’m not due until October but wanted to get an idea on pricing. Thank you!

“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”

-Jacques Cousteau

When I started my photography business I never imagined being known as a ‘beach photographer’. Somehow that changed about 6  years ago when I started doing more and more after photographing a very lovely senior girl at her local beach. I was completely blown away by its beauty and started returning spring, summer and fall, year after year. I never tire of it because my clients are promised something unique from Mother Nature each and every time. No one evening looks the same. The beach landscape is ever changing as the tides wash in and create pristine, smooth sand as far as you can see to being tousled with rocks and seaweed. Always a surprise, I never know what it will be until I crest the dune and behold what is in store for myself and my clients. We have beared muggy nights, braved the cold, stood strong against tumultous tides, in awe of sunsets that left us never wanting to leave until there was no more light and moon rises that took our breath away.

Yes, it certainly does hold you in it’s wonder….

With that all said, here is a mini session from last September of prescious little Addie Rose and her adoring parents. I was lucky enough to photograph this pretty mama’s maternity session as well as their newborn session. I couldn’t wait to see Addie in person again as we had stayed in touch and I was updated with adorable photos of her throughout the spring. It was a blustery day and the wind seemed to confuse her a bit and the cold air nipped her little toes. Though we didn’t get too many smiles I am still loving these images <3 There are some new beaches that I want to explore more and feel that they would really lend themselves to a gorgeous winter beach session. I’m running a special on sessions that take place thru March 30th. Reach out to find our more info!!

It’s been a while. Five months and four days to be exact.

So how have you been? 😉

It’s been a busy spring, summer and fall which means some things were overlooked, not prioritized and left on the back burner to simmer for too long. In this case, it’s boiled over and the pot is burnt. Whoops.

I remember when blogs were IT. The go to place for you to catch up on your favorite creatives’ newest work–to soak up all the viusal and written goodness. I’m curious to know how many people actually still read blogs. With the rise in popularity of Instagram, decrease in reach of our friends and fans on Facebook, I think most would agree that the community and support over in those little squares makes you feel like you’re being heard. I can spend hours sometimes working on a blog post and wonder if anyone has even read it.


So, I’ll just pick up where I left off last….motherhood sessions. I hold them very close to my heart–especially this one. My sister and her beautiful children. <3 She tirelessly works her business while raising three incredible little humans. I’m so proud of the woman and mother she has become.

I don’t know why but for some reason these movie files were sitting in my client folder on my hard drive for 5 years. I was photographing this adorable baby girl and her mom August 2013 down in Onset, MA and decided to take some video along with stills. When they say “life sometimes just gets in the way” it couldn’t be more true.  That and the fact that unless I have a to-do list written down being on my computer I feel like I have the worst ADD ever! Have you seen that meme that says, “Men, if you want to knowwhat a woman’s mind is like, imagine a browser with 3,241 tabs open.” So true!  Right now there are 16 open on my iMac including this one 😉

Being that I am trying to reach more clients interested in motherhood sessions (did you miss my motherhood minis this month??) I decided to buckle down and create this behind the scenes look at my afternoon with Scout and her pretty mama to show you all what your session can look like. Films are always so moving for me.  I hope this makes you feel <3 and I hope that I can create something this beautiful for you very soon!

Have a fabulous long weekend!

    Fokuspoint - Really beautiful!

mother and child portraits boston bridgewater south shore south coast maOver the last eleven years I have had the pleasure of photographing so many incredible families including some magnificent mothers and their babes. During this time my love of capturing the tender bond between mother and child has become a passion. Being a mother I know just how fleeting these years really are with our children. While the days can sometimes feel thankless and exhausting I always remind myself of this adage;

The days are long, but the years are short.

I hold these Motherhood portrait sessions near and dear to my heart. The connections I’ve been honored to witness and capture for my clients have filled me up and at times left me breathless. In honor of Mother’s Day, I will be gifting a Custom Portrait Session to a deserving mom and her children.

Do you know a woman who would love portrait photography that hasn’t had time to think about herself and that would truly treasure the experience? Maybe it’s somebody who has experienced loss, someone who is selfless beyond measure with family and in charitable ways, or simply does not have the means to hire a professional photographer. Maybe she’s a single mom doing it all, a foster mom, a caretaker or somebody who has recently fell ill.

You know someone.

I will also be choosing a SECOND deserving mom for a gifted Motherhood Mini session taking place on Saturday May 5th, 2018 in Fairhaven, Massachusetts. Winner will be notified by Wednesday May 2nd so they may plan accordingly. Session value -575.
