The 228 in Sterling Wedding | April & Brian

A few months ago I received a message from April letting me know that she was getting married! It was exciting to see the day finally arrive with only a few light showers, but with a whole lot of love and warmth while celebrating April and Brian’s love during the ceremony in Lancaster and then continuing with a reception in The 228 in Sterling. I loved trying to find those early blooms of spring to incorporate them into the day. I’ve never seen a more relaxed bride and it was a pleasure to follow her throughout the day documenting these new special memories.

Approaching Motherhood

One thing I have always been an advocate for is not rushing it. Don’t rush your dreams because they need cultivation. Own where you are at and stay true to yourself. I’ve never been one to fit an expected timeline and approaching motherhood at 35 was no exception. Honestly, it wasn’t something I really felt comfortable with right up until about a year ago. Everyone has a different story for why and when they become mothers.

Backyard Maternity Session in Sparrow Bush

In February I met with Agnes, my dear friend, and her family outside during an overcast winter day. Such brave souls, going out there in the cold! Thankfully, it wasn’t as cold as it had been. Either way we had to get these images in because little Junior was going to be coming soon! I was so privileged to photograph this backyard maternity session in Sparrow Bush with Agnes. She is a beautiful soul and it shone so beautifully during our time together.

Yosemite National Park, CA

Coming to Yosemite National Park in CA again was such a wonderful highlight of our trip. We ended up staying two hours outside the park, but still came to visit a second day. These are a few of the popular spots in and around the valley that we enjoy. I would love to go back for a whole week and camp out. I want to see Mono Lake especially.

My 2019 Goals For This Blog

Deep down I think we all really do know ourselves. I have been wanting to write this post for quite some time, but it wasn’t till I knew exactly what I wanted to say that I said, “Yes! This is it.” So today, I am going to share my voice. I have been struggling for the past two years trying to figure out what I actually want to share publicly. I love story writing, sharing images, and connecting with others who take knew ideas I hadn’t even thought of from what I put out there.

Grounding Yourself For More

When I am in conversation, I have the tendency to explain a concept in a long winded way. I strongly admire my husband for his ability to say few words and hit the nail on the head. I believe it is because he is good with words. Learning a new word that defines a whole concept and being able to explain your thoughts is where it’s at. The latest simple word I’ve learned fully (I kinda knew what it was before), is the term being grounded.

Crater Lake National Park, OR

Visiting Crater Lake National Park is one of those places that really challenges your perspective of space and distance. Before arriving, everything is pretty desolate and so upon coming to the edge you are immediately put in awe. Such a deep blue! And HUGE. I couldn’t really figure out how big it was until I saw a power boat the first time we came (this was our second). We barely made it in time before dark and so the lighting was full of contrast and drama. We parked at the visitor center, so if you ever wish to see these views you’ll know where to go!

The Lallo Family - Elm Park Worcester, MA

Most of the time I photograph families in country settings, but for this shoot I had the opportunity to photograph the Lallo Family at Elm Park in Worcester, MA as my backdrop! A few years back I worked with this crew and it was so fun to see the kids getting older and having their own style. Oh, and this park had an awesome bridge to use! I love bridges for some reason. Anyway, I had a lot of fun capturing back flips, jumps, and all these beautiful faces. Enjoy!
