The twin boys in this family attend a preschool where I take school portraits and I was honored to photograph their family last summer at one of their favorite stomping grounds (and mine!), the Arnold Arboretum.

Earlier this year, I was at my friend’s annual Kentucky Derby party and she introduced to this family’s beautiful mama.  We both happened to have on the biggest (and best, if I do say so myself) hats at the party — it was destiny that we should meet!  We started chatting, one thing led to another, and the following weekend I was photographing her family at the Arboretum.  We were lucky that the lilacs and a few other trees were still in bloom!

Enter Alyssa and her family.  Alyssa was one of the very first people I met at our new school and she immediately made me feel at home.  Her whole family is kind, warm and down to earth.  It’s no surprise that (more…)

I was so lucky this summer to have so many gorgeous evening sessions. Now, I’m just trying to get them all blogged before the end of fall!!

About 1-2 hours before sunset is truly the best and most flattering time to have your photograph taken.. The sun is low and so warm.  It’s my absolute favorite time to be out shooting.  This particular session took place at (more…)
