Skipping Town!!!

Imagine this: a beautiful house on like 30 acres of land, pool, pond/lake, the woods, not being able to see any neighbors to the left or to the right of you, peace and quiet and a not too far away distance from Boston.

New Hampshire

That’s what I will be able to enjoy for the next four days!  My husband and I will be traveling to New Hampshire. We have a couple of really close friends who recently bought a house up there and have been so gracious enough to allow us to stay for a getaway! I’m looking forward to just “being” with them since we don’t get to see them as often as we like.

We are planning a day trip to Boston. Have any of you been? What are some places that we should check out!!! Let me know.

If you’d like to follow along to see updates of where I will be at, follow me on Instagram or on Facebook. Talk to you soon!!!

I don’t even know where to begin…

I guess I can start with my reasoning for being so distant/absent. My husband lost another dear family member–his grandmother. All I have to stay is that she was a beloved woman who will be missed by many.

Another reason that I haven’t been on here lately has been the business of preparing and shooting weddings/engagement sessions. But I’m back and ready to revive the blog!

First up…a wedding that I had the honor of being in. I was a bridesmaid at Timmy and Rebecca’s wedding in June. Seeing as how I was in the wedding, I was not the photographer for day but was able to capture some shots.

It was a beautiful day!! Another thing that was also very special was that my husband performed the wedding! It was his first and he an amazing job!! Good job babe!!

The L Family {Orange/Ulster County, NY Family, Portrait Photographer}

I have been wanting to do this family’s session for the longest time now–probably since I decided that I wanted to get into photography. The reason for that is (a) I love this family. The mother and matriarch of the family is one of my closest friends and (b) They are just beautiful looking family.

So when prom season came around, the mom decided that this would be the perfect opportunity to capture both the prom night and memory of a beautiful close family. Everyone knows that prom day/night is a special event in and of itself. And for this family, it’s a joyous yet hard time, I would think, since this is the last prom that this mom will ever get to experience. Her last born baby girl is graduating High School. This made the session even more meaningful to me. I wanted to provide beautiful photos of a beautiful girl all dressed up alongside her handsome brothers and beautiful mom.

Here is the beautiful prom queen, herself. (Well I’m not actually sure if she was crowned prom queen but she is in my book)
