This location never fails me.  Belmont Habitat is a gorgeous place for scenic photos set against woods and meadow.  This mom and I lucked out on a frosty, foggy morning in early December for me to photograph her beautiful daughter and son, Layla and Jack (and dog Ellie too!).  It was a secret Christmas present for dad, who I know for a fact really liked what he received!

It’s been way too long since I have done a blog post, dear friends, but I have a few winter specials to share over the next week or so.  Starting today with a special Valentine’s Day engagement photo session (yes, it was held on the actual holiday!).

Meet Brianna and Will.  They appear oh-so-Bostonian (nailing the whole preppy, Ivy-league – one with the appropriate degree – look , and I was v impressed with the incorporation of crimson even into their wardrobe!).  But this couple hails from Fargo, North Dakota!  The two met while on college spring break back in their home city, and spent most of their relationship long distance until the past few years, spent here in Boston/Cambridge.  Self-proclaimed nerds, these two decided they wanted some of their photos to reflect their time spent pouring over books.  So we came up with a plan that incorporated Beacon Hill for a backdrop of quintessential Boston, a warm-up/outfit change at Peet’s Coffee, and then a trip across the Commons to Brattle Book Shop where we may have gotten into a little trouble.  Totally all worth it… ; )

Brianna and Will were very easy-going, engaged in their photo session and one-another and me.  It was too easy of a shoot, felt more like hanging out and getting to know a cool and interesting couple than work!  They marry in late summer back home at an aviation museum (cool, right?) and then are moving to DC.  Boston will miss you, B and W, but hopefully these photos will bring back fond memories of our cold but lovely city : )PINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPIN

Another former Nobles classmate and another gorgeous family! Astrid hired me to photograph her adorable children, husband, brother and parents at her newly acquired horse-farm in Dover. It was perfect fall evening, crisp and stunning. The festive attire glowed as did mischievous smiles and play. A perfect collection for the holidays!PINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPINPIN
