Milton, MA Yoga Photo Shoot at Houghton's Pond {w/ Theresa Laham}

One of my favorite parts of my job is that I am privileged to meet and connect with so many wonderful people. My community of yoga teachers and friends grows and grows each year and includes the kindest, most endearing, beautiful people. And featured in this blog post, Theresa Laham, is one of those amazing people. She is so incredibly kind and has the most infectious beautiful smile. I absolutely love photographing her! You may remember Theresa from my blog post last year highlighting some of the Universal Power Yoga Teacher Trainees at their Bird Park mini sessions. Theresa reached out to have a full shoot and this time we chose one of my favorite hidden gems, Houghton's Pond in Milton, MA, so that we could capture the beautiful water and fall foliage. I had such a great time and I am so excited to share these previews with you!

Join me in congratulating Theresa on completing her 200 hour teacher training this weekend!

Milton, MA Photo Shoot Outdoors {w/ Mary Keohane}

I could not be more excited to share previews from my yoga photo shoot with Mary Keohane. Earlier this week, Mary and I met in her gorgeous backyard to capture some yoga photography for her small business. Let me tell you, her backyard is just as lovely as she is. Complete with a stone structure, beautiful trees, and a brand new gorgeous pathway full of growing greenery, I was in a photographer's dream. It's truly a sacred space to photograph and I am sure that is not just from it's pure beauty but more so mainly to do with the woman and family cultivating it. Mary and I chatted about her classes and teachings and how she likes to create spaces for small groups to really become a community. In her classes, she provides a safe and supportive environment for her students to explore and grow; and, she makes sure that each student feels they are getting personalized attention. From working with Mary just this one time so far, I can tell you that she is a completely beautiful person inside and out, with an authentic, nurturing and inspiring energy. I cannot wait to get to one of her yoga classes myself!

You can find Mary teaching at The Center at Westwoods, the Milton Art Center, and the Milton Public Library.

Milton, MA Yoga Photo Shoot At Houghton's Pond {W/ Mary O'Toole - The Light Within Wellness}

After shooting at Houghton's Pond just last week, I was over the moon excited when Mary O'Toole, owner of The Light Within Wellness, was interested in photographing her yoga session in the beautiful space as well. I swear it is magical. And, I am amazed that we were able to find completely new and unique areas of the park to utilize. Mary was wonderful to work with and I was in awe of how certain areas of the space called to her. Her intuition and ability to ground herself in each of the spaces we shot was quite mesmerizing.

Mary loves helping others connect with their inner light and tuning into their energy. She helps her students connect to their inner wisdom and knowledge and trust their own guidance. She offers yoga retreats in beautiful Ireland, her home country. For more information, visit her website, The Light Within Wellness.

Canton, MA Wedding at Blue Hills Country Club {Jessica + Richard}

I first met Jessica at a yoga class I photographed at Universal Power Yoga and I was thrilled when she contacted me with the news that she was engaged to Richard. I met the two of them for a consult and had such a great time learning all about them, how they fell in love and all of the details of their Blue Hill Country Club wedding. Their engagement session was romantic and fun by the boats at the Milton Yacht Club and Jessica's engagement ring glimmered like crazy set on some natural lavender we found growing by the water. {It was the best smelling wedding ring shot I've ever taken.}

There was a slight drizzle on their wedding day that kept us inside. The overcast skies cast such a gorgeous light that I found myself pulled to the windows for many photographs to take advantage of the romantic lighting that the day provided. After getting ready, Jessica and Richard had cards delivered to each other and I couldn't help but get covered in goosebumps as they read their cards aloud. Their ceremony was filled with love and support; my favorite part was when the pastor asked all members of their congregation to come forward for a group blessing, each placing a hand on the bride or groom. The love was palpable.

The rest of the wedding day went off without a hitch. The reception room was stunning with everything a deep purple palate from the chair bows to the floral centerpieces and cake topper. I loved seeing guests sign the engagement session guest book that we designed together. By the end of the night it was so full of written blessings that there was barely any white space left at all. It's clear these two have a lot of people who love them dearly.

Here's a huge shout out to all of the vendors that made this day possible!

Boston, MA Yoga Photo Shoot in the Arboretum {Danae Laura}

I had such a great time working with Danae Laura at our fall yoga photo shoot in the Arboretum. The best part about shooting at the Arboretum is that the trees and scenery are constantly changing with the season so each session there is completely unique. For this session, Danae and I both immediately noticed the light coming through a group of trees that was just stunning. We started there and almost as if we had ESP, we both gravitated towards the same areas in the park. We utilized a gorgeous yellow tree that amazingly had not yet lost its leafs and some gorgeous green areas. At the end, Danae also spotted a low tree branch that looked as though it was made as a platform for some yoga poses. It was truly a stunning shoot. Take a peak!

Milton, MA Engagement Session at The Milton Yacht Club {Jessica + Richard}

I'm excited to share with you Jessica and Richard's engagement session at the Milton Yacht Club. I absolutely love when couples bring new locations to my attention and this one was absolutely perfect. There were secluded walkways, beautiful boats, a private dock, and a quaint little boat house for our adventures. To top it all off, the couple knew of a beautiful green field not too far away where there was a clear view of the city skyline. I've chosen my favorites to share with you all today! Take a look!


Jessica and Richard, I am so excited to be photographing your wedding this November!

Boston, MA Wedding at City Hall {Lee + Pat}

Lee and Pat got married last weekend at Boston City Hall and I feel so honored that I was able to be a part of their big day. They were looking for something very simple and low-key, so I met them {along with many loving family members and friends} outside Boston City Hall to photograph them after their service and stayed for some family portraits.  A wedding day should be all about what the bride and groom are looking for and that doesn't necessarily mean a big 8 or 10 hour photography session. For them it was all about getting the key people surrounding them that day so that's exactly what we did!

I met Lee right after graduating from yoga teacher training in 2011. She was actually the first person to hire me to teach yoga at Beacon Hill Athletic Clubs, at the Brighton location she managed. I taught at her location for two years because it was an amazing community to be a part of. Lee introduced me to her sister, Alex, by purchasing her a surprise engagement shoot! I then photographed Alex and Nick's beautiful Maine wedding last year. It's incredible to be a part of a family for more than one wedding. {Jay, wink, wink, you're next.}

Take a look at some of the portraits we captured last weekend!

A huge shout out to all of the vendors who made the day such a success!

Winthrop, MA Engagement Session {Caitlin + Matt}

A session like this one makes you fall in love with love.

I absolutely adored photographing Caitlin and Matt for their engagement session earlier this month. We started out at their home in Winthrop, MA to photograph one of their favorite pastimes, cooking together. Their newly renovated kitchen is simply amazing and totally unique; and, of course, they were super adorable prepping dinner together in it. We then headed out to the waterfront to photograph the two of them where Matt proposed. Caitlin asked me if Matt could bring along his motorcycle for the session and of course I said yes! The two of them were total rockstars posing and having fun on the motorcycle. I absolutely loved it! The sunset was dreamy and the skyline was clear and beautiful.  Take a look.
