Because I got to document the pregnancy and first moments of Zara's life after her birth, it was especially lovely to be invited back six weeks or so later for newborn portraits. Typically, newborn photos are taken within the first week, but I loved working with this squishy and expressive little girl and her parents. So much love. So much sweetness. So much hair, haha.
Due to a sick older brother and having to reschedule her pregnancy intimates, we ended up having this portrait session when I was already on-call for the birth of the wee one inside Tasha's belly AND she was already past her due date. I just love how calm and at peace she seemed in spite of everything, including Micah and River, her two little boys full of energy bouncing all around. This just goes to show that it is never really too late to book a maternity session and at the very least, you'll get an hour or two of quiet respite from daily life while I take photos of you alone. This family is the definition of adorable. Love them.
Kelley and Scott tied the knot (hey, that rhymes) at their parents' beautiful home in Plymouth. The day was wonderful from the moment I walked in the door and was offered a cup of coffee by an excited and anxious bride keeping busy preparing plates of fresh fruit and cheese for all the ladies. The ceremony was full of laughs thanks to Charlie LeDuff officiating, and there were a few tears from the vows the couple had prepared for themselves. Rain cleared in time for a dry backyard wedding and reception. Even Shaq made an appearance, expertly hidden amongst the trees by Mom so he could bear witness to the nuptials.
