Simmons Family Sneak Peek!

This past Sunday I had the most fun with the Simmons family!  This was my second trip to the Arboretum that week, and man, did we have a blast!  This is one of favorites of all the kids together.  I'm almost done editing and will be posting so many more from this shoot, can't wait for you to see them!

Thanks to Octavia, Sean, Kobi and Keisha for rocking this session!

Autumn is an absolutely beautiful time for outdoor portraits, especially when the leaves allow for some extra natural props for the kids to play with.  As much as running around in the leaves with little ones is a blast, this time of year is great for couple sessions as well.  The changing leaves represent the beauty, as well as the necessity of change and growth throughout each year.  And who doesn't love to be dressed up nice a cozy in light coats with scarves without being stuck in the snow!  

This past Tuesday, I had the pleasure of photographing a great old friend and his girlfriend for their almost-two-year-anniversary!  Dave and I went to high school and college together and I've known Liz for a couple years as well.  We went to the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain, MA (if you look back to very early blog posts you will see some photos of my dancer friend Angie posed in the changing leaves of this same location 3 years ago!).  The Arboretum is the most beautiful, versitile landscape ever! You could wander around for days, never passing the same tree twice - perfect for photoshoots! Anyway, let's get to the good stuff - here is Dave & Liz, enjoy some of my favorites from our afternoon in the chilly November weather!

Of course we have to end on a silly one - here the happy couple is clicking their heels at the same time!  If only we had brought balloons and then it'd look like they were floating away together!  Love it!

Thanks again Dave and Liz, you guys made my job so easy and are great models!

"I don't want people who want to dance, I want people who have to dance." ~George Balanchine

I've been meaning to update my blog more often, things have just started getting pretty busy for the upcoming Holiday season!  I have had a bunch of shoots the last couple weeks and can't wait to show you some great photos! Most recently, I had a shoot last night, and I am so excited about the photos I had to put up some favorites!  My friends Angie and Guerreiro are both skilled dancers and capoeira students.  We have done photos before, but I think this particular shoot is one of the best! Their connection, attitude and overall awesomeness truly shine through in these photos. 

Check back later this week for more rockin' sessions!
