The Gomes Family - Golden hour family photos at Silver Bell Farm

I feel so lucky to have kicked off my sunset mini sessions at Silver Bell Farm with this super sweet family! If you saw my last blog preview, you’ll know that these sessions started with some heavy rain. The Gomes family was actually standing out in the field with me when the rain started coming down. We all ran into the event space at the farm until the storm passed, and thankfully it did! I am so grateful that we had such beautiful light after the rain!

Marco and Leigh-Ann just had their second baby girl in September and were super excited to celebrate their new family with some photos.

They were such good sports and even in the rain I didn’t hear their littlest make a peep!

Biggest thanks to the Gomes family for being such troopers with the weather! I had so much fun photographing your little family!

Jess and Emil - Quabbin Reservoir Engagement Session

Emil proposed to his fiance Jess on a hot air balloon ride through Vermont and New Hampshire last year. Next year they’ll be married at the Salem Cross Inn! These two were a dream to photograph — adventurous, fun, and full of love for each other.

We held the session at the Quabbin Reservoir in Belchertown, Massachusetts.

Emma + Mark | Springfield, MA Wedding

Emma and Mark have been partners for many years now, and recently they decided that they wanted to be married, but without all of the hubbub of a big wedding. They chose to get eloped at Springfield City Hall in Springfield, MA on May 4, 2018.

Emma is a knitwear designer, sewer, photographer, and all around creative. She and I met at WEBS where we worked in the multimedia and photo department. Emma has been making a lot of her own clothes this year, and decided to make her own wedding dress as part of the Me Made May event this month.

She said, "I wanted something modern, not a typical wedding dress so I could wear it other times but something classic over trendy." 

I personally think it turned out so lovely and really captured her creative spirit!

We've had a pretty long winter here in western Massachusetts, and spring really did wait for their wedding day to arrive. EVERYTHING was in bloom! After their very short ceremony by Grace Ceremonies at city hall, we spent an hour at Forest Park taking photos and admiring spring at its best.

Congratulations Emma and Mark! I'm so happy for you!
