Noel Herbal Skincare | Somerville Small Business | Creative Entrepreneur Lifestyle Portrait & Product Photography

Noel Herbal Skincare, based in Somerville, MA, was founded by Shannon Curtis who has been an esthetician for over 15 years! Shannon and I first connected through a Facebook group where she shared that she had some big dreams for her business, and she was working on learning how to brand and promote her work. I have always been fascinated by branding, and Shannon and I connected over the value of visual imagery when it comes to upleveling the overall perception of small businesses

This environmental portrait session we did together created the perfect imagery for Shannon’s website, Instagram, online shop, emails, and more. Anywhere you market yourself, you can use your custom photography!

Nick + Kristen | Woodsy Belmont Summer Maternity Session | Boston and New England Portrait Photography

Nick + Kristen | Woodsy Belmont Summer Maternity Session | Boston and New England Portrait Photography

Maternity sessions are always a treat! It’s heartwarming to see new soon-to-be parents on the verge of BIG changes—Exciting, scary, but ultimately a new phase of life that they wouldn’t trade for the world. 

Kristen and Nick were the epitome of this! Ultimately, they seemed so ready for their new baby girl, and ready to take on any challenge that came their way, because they’re the ultimate team. It really was completely MY honor to be able to spend time with these two and document their love. They are so caring, supportive, hilarious, and never hesitate to compliment the heck out of each other! Let me tell you, you can never give too many compliments to your spouse (in my opinion anyway)!

These two live in Framingham, and wanted to have their session in the Greater Boston area in a location with lots of greenery. Locations with variety are like gold to me, and I managed to find this lovely spot with an open field, tons of ivy and trees, TWO stone staircases and a stone wall, and gorgeous spots to catch the sunset peeking through the trees! So much variety for nature lovers!

Katelyn + Joe | Summer Sunset Lake Quannapowitt Wakefield Engagement Session | Boston and New England Wedding Photography

Katelyn and Joe are high school sweethearts and have lived in Wakefield for years! They started dating on the night of Katelyn’s senior prom (SO cute) and the Wakefield High tradition is for the students to walk around the common by Lake Quannapowitt in their gowns and tuxes for the town to see and send them off. So, we incorporated all kinds of pretty areas and town landmarks near the lake into their session to commemorate the beginnings of their relationship! AND, we did it during the “golden hour”—Usually sunrise or sunset, and in this case, sunset—So all their photos have a dreamy, golden color. Golden hour sessions are my favorite, and you’ll see why once you start scrolling!
