vintage sailboat

It’s a session like this that fills me up and literally makes my heart skip a beat.  When two creative minds come together it can produce breathtaking results.  As such, when Mariah Gale, a local photographer, contacted me last summer to photograph her I was a) instantly flattered that she thought of me and b) really excited about where we could take this shoot.  The theme was “vintage sailboat” and after many ideas fluttering back and forth over email and exchanges shared through Pinterest, the shoot began to take shape.  Unfortunately, a hurricane in the forecast had other plans for us and the boats were taken out of the marina and the shoot postponed.  Fast forward 10 months and we rescheduled the shoot on her birthday–as she couldn’t think of another better way to spend it.  The weather was divine, the location spectacular, and with the help of super stylist, Caitlin Murphy, the look was beautifully brought to fruition.  Mariah was insanely good in front of the camera.  I didn’t shut up the entire time about how amazing she was.  And least I forget her dashing man, Dan, who undoubtedly played the part to a “T”.   Thank you for making this so incredible!!  xoxo
