{{.Get In The Shot!}}

After a crazy year of self doubt, and self discovery, of learning and growing, I’ve realized that I don’t get in the shot enough. I’ve made it my mission to just jump in. I want to make sure that my loved ones have something to hold on to, proof of my existence..

And with that, I handed my camera over to first our dad, then my Love, so they could snap a few pictures of my sisters and I, and even a couple with my mini human. I love these girls! One day, I’m going to get all FIVE of my sisters and all of our kiddos together for a photo shoot.. One day..

{{.Rainy Days are SO MUCH FUN.}}

Another perk of being a VIP client, is that if ever I need to create an advertisement, I offer my VIPs the first pick! I mentioned on Thursday that the weather was going to be perfect for a “Rainy Day” session, and that I wanted to start advertising on Facebook for it. I posted in the VIP facebook group that I wanted to do the shoot. One of my favorite little families said they’d LOVE to! * yay *

We met at 10:30a on Friday morning at the park. Mom and I chatted a little bit, and then we got right to playing! I’ve been photographing these mini humans for over two years now, and I’m so excited I get to watch them grow. When we meet up, I already know that E will be full of smiles and giggles, and S will want to run around. I knew that I wanted to show them the waterfall, but to do that I would have to take them through an area that snapping turtles use for laying eggs. I told the mini’s that there might be snapping turtles around, and S was a little nervous about being snapped, so I even pinky promised him I would never let that happen.

We had so much fun playing and exploring that before we knew it, we had been playing for almost an hour and a half! I just love when I get to have days like that!

{{.Finally working through some editing.}}

Over the holidays, personal pictures get neglected all across the nation by hard working photographers. It’s fun to play catch up in January! 😉

This one is of my Love and my Mini Human. She’s adventurous and loves to climb and play. He just lets her, but he’s always there to catch her if she falls. I just love them! This is on the bike path near our house, and while it’s slightly grainy, I love it anyways. This was such a great moment from October 29, 2015.

{{.Sisters in the Fall.}}

I met with these two lovely ladies while I was shooting my Santa promotions at the always lovely, Mill Villages Park. They’re sisters. They were full of giggles and fun all for their whole mini session. It was lovely. I wish I had pictures like these of my sisters and I. To me, there’s no bond quite like the one that siblings share. I hope these ladies cherish these pictures for years to come.

{{.Beach House 2015.}}

This year has been a rocky one in my life. There were some not so good things, but there was a lot of time to be introspective, and time to really push myself. At the beginning of the summer, I made a promise to myself to visit the ocean more. After a cloudy afternoon, a sunset with some friends, and a sunrise with my second shooter, I took my Love, my Mini Human, and her cousin, Nephew 1 to Sandy Point. It’s probably going to be the last time we visit until next year, so it was a little bittersweet.

Someone has been building driftwood structures. We found them back when we went to the beach the first time this summer in July. This particular one was not yet built, but it was started by the time I went back the second time. The third time, it was pretty sturdy looking. This last time though, it was a little home for us for the day. It was amazing.

I’ve always felt the happiest at the side of the ocean. Hearing waves crashing and seabirds calling out, is music to my ears.  Getting to share it with people I love makes it even better. Knowing that it’s a national wildlife refuge makes it one of my favorite places I’ve ever been.

{{.Brothers in the Backyard.}}

Golden hour is typically the hour (or two) leading up to sunset. It’s particularly appealing because the sun is closer to the horizon, making it’s light softer and more romantic while giving everything a beautiful golden glow.
What was going to be a golden hour baby shoot turned into a golden hour brother shoot. I just adore these two mini humans. They’re my nephews, Nephew 2 & Nephew 6.  Nephew 6 is just starting to walk. He’s still a little unsure of taking more than a handful of steps, but I feel certain that he’ll be running before we know it!

{{.Breezy Picnic Grounds & Water Slides.}}

This week, my mom wanted to do something fun together one last time before the summer ends, so we went to Breezy Picnic Grounds & Water Slides. All the pictures you see in the collage were taken in the first 2 hours we were there, after that, I was having so much fun I didn’t pick up my camera for the rest of the day!! For me, that’s pretty amazing. I’m *always* behind the camera! For anyone that wants to go, they’re located in Douglas, MA.

We brought our own food, and bought ice cream before we left. It was delicious! They have picnic tables along the lake and a really nice sandy beach. Lots of room for the mini humans to run and play, but the ones from our family didn’t want to leave the water. There are 3 slides, 2 of which you can ride with your 2-4 year olds on (or go solo), and the 3rd id just for a single rider at a time (so kids 5+ can go on, but not 2-4). The staff was so friendly, and so weren’t the ducks!

It was such a great day!! Thinking about visiting? Check out their website here, and their facebook page here! Want to do a beach session of your own? Check out beach session information here!

{{.Baby J’s Smash Cake Session.}}

Use your “Mini Session for ANY reason” for a smash cake! That’s what Baby J’s mommy did! He was NOT  interested in being sticky, but as soon as he tasted the frosting, he was into it.. For about 5 minutes! His mommy did a great job on the cake and he enjoyed it so much.   Happy first birthday Baby J!!
