The fall is a popular time for kids and family portraits! Take a look at one of my favorite subjects…. I just love taking her picture. Here she wasn’t exactly cooperating but the light from the window makes a gorgeous shot and sometimes looking away from the camera makes a portrait interesting.
A few shots of my adorable great niece while she and her mom were visiting last week. She was busy coloring so I thought I’d snap a few quick shots of her while she was being still. Notice what happens when a 2 year old thinks they are supposed to “say cheese.” They really don’t get the point! My son tried explaining to her “cheese isn’t about yelling the word, it’s for you to make a nice smile.” Still so adorable even when she’s yelling out “cheese!” 🙂
On Saturday, we attended the baptism of of our dear friends’ new baby grandson. It was a perfect, beautiful day to drive to Boston and celebrate with our friends. The ceremony was lovely and of course the baby is absolutely adorable and incredibly precious. Events like these always make me so thankful for wonderful friends and family. Here are some shots from the ceremony. We wish little Alfred Anthony a long, healthy, wonderful life.
And happy birthday to his namesake, Anthony Ryan, who was so special to each of our family members. We will have you in our hearts forever.
I recently had the opportunity to photograph my friend’s daughter and husband, who are expecting their first baby next month. It was fun photographing her all around the city of Boston and photographing them both on a beach just north of Boston. The morning on the beach didn’t have the sunrise we had hoped for, but the gray skies lent themselves well to black and white images. I think she looks gorgeous, actually they both do, but I love that big belly!
Is my 2 front teeth!! Isn’t it just the cutest when kids lose their front teeth? It is such a sweet but fleeting time and I love to capture photos of it! Luckily I had a willing subject who stood right where I wanted, in front of my tree, and smiled too!
I had such a lovely afternoon photographing my friends daughter! My class on posing has taught me a lot, with much more to learn because there certainly is a lot to it. My ‘model’ was more than willing and cooperative, plus she is hilarious! But it does take a lot to know what will look good through the camera and then there’s trying to explain what you want them to do! I loved this afternoon with her and hope to continue having many more sessions with happy kids!!
Yesterday I took some photos of two of my favorite subjects… my niece and her daughter. It was fun taking these and I love the backlighting!
I love taking pictures of adorable little kids. I mean really, what little kid isn’t adorable??For some reason the antique look was appealing to me for these pictures… she looks so old fashioned in her little dress and bare feet!!
What an incredible season our high school football team had! Ranked number 1 in the state and number 11 in the tri-state area (by MSG Varsity) and with an offense considered the best in the state, the expectations for our team were sky high. Our players and coaches were amazing in every way, from athletic ability to teamwork and spirit; they demonstrated what it means to be a great team.
Our regular season was extraordinary in every way. We won every regular season game, with an average score of 51-17 for the regular season. The team was 9-0 and clinched the conference championship on Thanksgiving Day. What a great day that was!! Smiles and cheering were all around, with awards presented and a bucket of Gatorade dumped over the coach in celebration.
Headed into the state championships we were favored and expectations were high. We won the quarterfinal game and were faced with another powerhouse team in the semis. Our boys played their hearts out in that great game. The game was close but unfortunately we did not win, an upset that was tough to take. I hope that the players, though, do not keep only this loss in their hearts and memories when they look back on their remarkable season. There are so many great times to remember and be proud of, which is what the season was about. I hope all of the players and coaches remember this season as an amazing achievement by a team to be proud of. Everyone on our team demonstrated a team spirit at all times on the field, from working their hardest to supporting and rooting for each other at every turn.
Being on the field taking pictures, I was lucky to be up close to the amazing athleticism demonstrated by our players. I just had to share some of the photos from the last game, which capture just a tiny glimpse of the effort demonstrated by our boys since September. Leaving that field for the last time was difficult, extremely so, particularly for seniors and their parents. I hope everyone associated with the team has a warm feeling about an incredible season filled with great memories. Wrecker Pride!
What fun we had last week having a few mini-photo shoots at a family gathering. I just love taking photos of children and families. Especially on a beautiful Autumn day and with fun subjects too! Let me know and I’ll take photos of you and your family… it’s that time of year!! 🙂
