Autumn 2009

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

This is the first day of autumn! There are only 94 days until Christmas. (Can you believe it?)  This means that it’s time to start planning family portraits so your cards and prints will be available in plenty of time for the holiday season.

Our autumn portrait promo is here! Mini sessions are our most affordable and efficient option for getting that perfect brag-worthy image to use in holiday greetings, as gifts, or to update the family portrait on your desk at work. Let’s leverage the incredible colors of New England’s autumn while they are in full glory!

The details:

  • Nonrefundable session fee of $125 is for our time and talent.
  • Proof gallery with about 15-20 images from the mini-session.

  • These sessions are for everyone!
    • families
    • couples
    • pets (no guarantees!!)
    • headshots
    • Be creative… wear your wedding dress if you want some quick artsy shots in the autumn leaves! Bring your violin if you’re a musician. Bring your kids for a playful leaf fight!

The day my camera broke.

It has happened before – Canon 5Ds are notorious for having a particular mirror come “unstuck” during use. The last time was in February 2008 right before our wedding when I was in San Francisco photographing an engagement session. The usual jokes about “we broke your camera… for real!” do apply, but those are usually reserved for grandpas as wedding guests flirting with the photographer.

Anyway, I was in Jamaica Plain MA with Brittany and Mike and their new adorable Linus (what kind of dog again guys?) on a BEAUTIFUL perfect Sunday afternoon. We were about 10 minutes into the session when aforementioned camera broke. Luckily, I was able to do a few more images with Brittany’s Canon rebel before rescheduling to complete the shoot on another day.

Portrait Swap | Megan | Jamaica Plain, MA

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

I’ve been into portrait swaps lately, because photographers often don’t have enough quality photos of themselves and their families. Megan of Perspectives Photography asked me to help document her pregnancy, and so we agreed to do a sort of hip urban maternity session. We met up at Hi-Lo Foods in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts and utilized their colorful murals and aisles for some shots. Then we walked around the surrounding few blocks for some more street shots.

I love doing maternity portraits. I think pregnant women are so beautiful!
