Anekah’s Motives

I was asked recently to do some head shots and makeup application candids for Anekah McCall’s business start up, Anekah’s Motives. She is very young but already has a maturity and artistic vision well beyond her age, where most high school kids aren’t thinking about starting a business—she is well on her way. I was glad I could help out, and we had a fun shoot at the salon she works at in Palmer, MA.

These are just a few shots from the all-day shoot. She wanted to show some before and after shots, so I set up a studio in the parlor and jumped back and forth between head shots, applications, and an outdoor shoot that got a lot of attention from the locals 😉 The little dog who came up to the girls was happy for the attention, and didn’t want to leave!

Maggie’s Senior Portraits

I love that senior portrait time happens to be in the fall, well at least Oct is the deadline and I get frantic phone calls from parents. But shooting portraits in the fall is indeed my favorite time of year to do so. Catching colors and light coming through the leaves and how that magic afternoon light seems to hang around for hours before it melts into a stunning sunset. AND I especially love to shoot for family, in this case my young cousin Maggie, who has grown up before our eyes into a beautiful young woman. We had a great session today and I wanted to share a few of my favorites.

Sara at The Crossings

Although I knew about The Crossings in Albany, NY and had been there once or twice, I really didn’t look at it as a destination location for portraits. I will be returning often to shoot here and it’s dog friendly, which is key for most family portraits, and the kids love it. I had a great shoot with my niece Sara last weekend and the weather was breezy but with beautiful light. The ducks were happy to get a few Cheerios, and one thing is for sure Sara had a good time and was off for a nap.

Family portraits

Family portraits are in full swing, and I just love it!

Ginelle and Justin

I love shooting couples that are totally in love, and with Ginelle and Justin it was clear how much they are in love with each other. I often looked up from setting my camera and they were kissing already 😉 We had a fun ATV trip up to the top of Jiminy Peak and hiked most of the way down and flushed some turkeys and saw a deer watching us during the shoot. We stopped a couple of times on the way to a lovely nearby farm in Hancock, MA and the light just got better. Looking forward to their wedding and meeting their family and friends!

Shenna’s Senior Portrait

When I was asked by my cousin Jayne if I would be willing to take her daughter’s senior portrait for her school’s album, I couldn’t say no. Jayne and her husband Dan are two of the sweetest and loving people I know, and my most vivid memory of Shenna was traveling to their home in Springfield, MA over ten years ago with my mom on a glorious spring day for Shenna’s first communion, and she was by far the cutest little girl in the class with her long curly hair and brilliant smile. Shenna has grown up to be an intelligent and beautiful young woman and if you know Jayne and Dan it’s no wonder why. We had many great shots from the shoot and her best friend Brianna came along, and was a ham on and off the camera!


Shelagh and Travis’ Engagement

We had a great engagement shoot today on the walking trails behind the Park-McCullough House in North Bennington, VT. I only wish we had more time, but the rain held off just long enough to get some great shots. Congrats to Shelagh and Travis, looking forward to the wedding next fall!
