Max, Michael & Ari – 5/16/10

Let me give you a little back story to these three lovely kids.  When I first started dating Danielle (up in New Hampshire), she was a babysitter extraordinaire. Every Friday she would babysit Michael & Ari during the day and pick up Max from the school bus in the afternoon. So every time I went up to NH to visit, I would drive straight to the Friedman’s home and babysit with Danielle. It was a blast! Max, Michael & Ari were so energetic and fun to hang out with. I say ‘hang out’ because lets face it, I wasn’t there to babysit!  I was there to play, it was Dani’s job to babysit and make sure everyone stayed safe and sound.

Before I drive off down memory lane, fast forward and we’re reunited with the three of them again.  Although they have grown significantly they still possess that same lovable charm we were drawn to a few years back. We took some family portraits, went to play mini golf, and took a quick stop on Main Street to cap off our day with them. It was sad to leave them again, but now we have some pictures to remind us of them!

Joanna & Jake 05/08/10

Today was a fun and productive day. The Reflections Photography Crew (Mikey, Kristen, Dani and I  :) ) had an early morning meeting (delicious NY bagels for breakfast) before we met Nicole & Mike up in Tarry Town, NY to do a venue walk-through with them to plan out their wedding. Later in the afternoon, we had an e-session out in Glen Cove, NY.  Joanna (who happens to be my cousin) came upon the pictures we took of Donielle & Kyle out at the Jersey Shore and asked if we’d be willing to do an engagement session with her and Jake (her fiance’) and of course we were happy to do it.

I had a lot of fun planning this shoot because it involved a train ride, something I had been wanting to do for a while, and a cool old church. We got to the train station early and it was completely empty, just as I had hoped it would be. We had both time and space on our side, so I did my best to take full advantage. The whole shoot was going really well, until I got caught up in the picture taking and forgot what stop we were supposed to get off at and ended up some place I was not planning to be. Whoops. I’m thankful that I was with my cousin  because I would have felt extra awkward if it were someone else!  Thankfully Dani was waiting in the car at the train stop (the one we were supposed to get off) so she came and scooped us up. Traveling by car we went to the old church and finished up the shoot at Burger King, but not for food. :-)

Kelly & Tim- 04/10/2010

I had never been so excited to shoot an engagement session as I was today, and it was for two reasons: First, I was able to take photos of Kelly (my friend who helped me to court Dani and make her my wife) and her fiance Tim. Second, Boston is beautiful. Combining these two for me equals sheer excitement and joy. The whole shoot was incredibly fun, and the love and emotion between Kelly & Tim was really vivid.

I have not spent much time in the city of Boston before so picking a good place to take pictures was kind of tricky. However, with Tim’s helpful suggestions and the aid of Google Maps we found a great little street that led us right to Esplanade Park which runs along the Charles River. It was a fantastic setting to capture the love between two people who happen to hold a very special place in my heart. Enjoy.
