2016 – In Review

Oh friends. What a year it’s been. For many this has been a tumultuous year.

Oh friends. What a year it’s been. For many this has been a tumultuous year. We’ve certainly bared witness to heart ache and stormy weather this year, but after looking through what has become our favorite work related task (collecting what we feel are our strongest images from the year) we are reminded that there is a whole lot to celebrate this year too. And it’s not the pretty wedding details, but real, messy, living and breathing love. From trembling hands that ring their beloved to tiny kicks that wait to be loved and the sugar high induced tantrum that cuts the shoot short – this is life-giving work. It is our great pleasure to bear witness to our clients friends lives. To capture who, where and what you love. We are filled with gratitude to document some of the most tender, vulnerable and joy-filled events in life. The joy rubs off on us too, and for that we are eternally grateful. Let’s do this, 2017.

Fall Mini Remix

We’re back with round two of our annual family mini sessions – this time we’re focusing on our fall sessions! We’ve got a mix of families here from both Minnesota and New England. Over half of these were shot by Chuck – and we’re loving each and every shot – not that it’s hard to […]

We’ve got a mix of families here from both Minnesota and New England. Over half of these were shot by Chuck – and we’re loving each and every shot – not that it’s hard to make these sweet kids look good. We love the rich fall colors and grey skies in these photos – many people think they need a full sun shiny day for photos but the overcast fall skies provide a different look that is just as beautiful, if not more so. We anticipate many a holiday card with these photos, and have to figure out a way to get our own family on Chuck’s Mini Session roster next year because I’ll admit we’re a bit jealous! Don’t ever hesitate to reach out to learn more about our Mini Sessions. We don’t market them openly because we have such limited space, but we’re happy to include you on our e-mail announcements if you’re interested in the next round. As always, thank you to these beautiful families to allow us to document their growing families.

Katie + Phillip = Married

Is there anything better than a farm wedding? Katie and Phillip were wed on Phillip’s family’s farm in Western Mass in September and the whole day was incredibly fun. Chuck had the honor of lead shooting this wedding and we love the mix of laid back guest shots, lovey newlywed portraits and the resident chickens. […]

Chuck had the honor of lead shooting this wedding and we love the mix of laid back guest shots, lovey newlywed portraits and the resident chickens. 🙂 Katie and Phillip live in New York, so having the wedding away from the hustle and bustle was a conscious choice by the couple so that everyone could catch some fresh air and enjoy the weekend together. We think it worked beautifully and are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with them. Congratulations to Katie and Phillip, and another joy well done by Chuck!

The C Family

This session is so refreshing, isn’t it? From the darling squishy newborn baby to the older brothers who infused their own personalities into the shoot, we just love that this shoot is a real-life depiction of what life is like in a household full of small children. The C family is no stranger to our […]

The C family is no stranger to our lens – they participated in a fall mini session marathon with Chuck in Arlington, MA last fall, so when they contacted us to document their next new chapter we were honored to get them in front of the camera again. Chuck did a fantastic job (as always!) documenting this beautiful family and we hope they enjoy the photos for a long time to come. Congratulations on the beautiful new addition!

Beth + Ben = Married

Beth and Ben were married on a glorious September afternoon at the Endicott Estate in Dedham, Massachusetts. The Endicott Estate remains one of our favorite venues because it seamlessly marries the old world feel of the Boston area while remaining fresh and comfortable. We’ve said it a thousand times, but give us a Historic Estate […]

Chuck was on slate for Beth and Ben’s big day and we love the images he captured of their laid back and classy wedding. We’re over the moon for you, Beth and Ben – and so grateful you put your trust in us to document this milestone in your lives. Congratulations!

Christina + Adam = Engaged

Adam – you get an A+ for nailing the marriage proposal. I mean really – how great is this session!? Adam called us up this summer to ask if we’d photograph his proposal to his long time girlfriend, Christina, in Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood in front of one of the prettiest flower shops on the Hill. […]

I mean really – how great is this session!? Adam called us up this summer to ask if we’d photograph his proposal to his long time girlfriend, Christina, in Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood in front of one of the prettiest flower shops on the Hill. We were all over it and kept everything under wraps as we learned Adam’s plan. Chuck was there on the day-of to shoot and was able to conceal himself without Christina knowing until after Adam had popped the question. The look on her face can’t be put into words, which is exactly why having a professional photographer capture this moment is priceless. After she said yes, Adam and Christina floated on cloud nine with Chuck capturing it all around Beacon Hill and the Boston Public Garden. We’re smitten with these two and are so happy they have these photos to cherish in the coming years as they remember the day she said yes.

Baby L

Couldn’t let any more time pass before sharing some sweet photos Chuck captured of Baby L and his family on his first few days at home. It’s such a gift to capture these moments for families. Little L is nearly 6 months now (!) but his sweet squishy cheeks and soft skin are too precious […]

It’s such a gift to capture these moments for families. Little L is nearly 6 months now (!) but his sweet squishy cheeks and soft skin are too precious not to share with the world. Chuck documented this session with us and we are always so smitten with his ability to catch the little nuances during these momentous milestones. The way the pets give him the side eye – unsure of all the newness that surrounds them….the tiny fingers whose fingernails are still peeling from being submersed in fluid for 9 months….the awe and exhaustion in the eyes of new parents….these things are real and worth documenting, however transient they are at the time. But then you look at the sweet innocence and dependence of this little babe in their arms and know that it’s all worth it. Thank you for allowing us to capture your beautiful family, Katie and Anthony.
