Autumn Sessions | The Whitaker Bennetts
You can certainly tell the holidays are here on our blog. Why? Not because there are bunches of cute family sessions with dashes of red here and there, but because of the beautiful faces looking right in my lens. I have this obsession with getting children to actually look at the camera for their portraits. I don't mind if they are serious or smiling or saying CHRISTMAS TREE! I just want to see their faces. There is always time for candid portraits. But for now we want to share faces. Faces that change too quickly and faces that live too far away. So when you send out your Holiday cards know they are cherished and worth every minute of work and preparation.

I love this family. Marika and Jonathan come to my mind often when I think of caring, patient parents. And they are so stinkin' stylish I could cry! Thank you guys for having me photograph your family and get ready for a beautiful collection of candid moments that I did not feature here:)

Warm holiday wishes,

Parker | Senior Portraits
Parker is one stylish kid. And he was ready to work the camera. It was a fun time walking around the Back Bay and into the Public Garden for his Senior Portrait Session with him and his mom Linda. Mothers and sons... If I even consider my little boy being a senior in high school I get weepy!

Best wishes Parker! Thank you Linda for having me photograph this special time.

Moriah | Senior Portrait Session
Moriah is just the cutest and I love how carefree and into the shoot she was. I photographed her brother Jordan's Senior Portraits a couple of years ago. So I was thrilled that the whole family could come along for a family portrait too.
Enjoy this sneak peak. Much more on it's way shortly!

Jillian and Stephen have the cutest little baby boy. Smiling and happy, we had an easy job of getting Cameron into pictures. And the weather has been so good. I don't ever remember such a pretty autumn!
Thank you Jillian and Stephen for inviting me to photograph your beautiful family. There is more to come shortly!

Family Reunion at Ketcham Farm
Happy Thanksgiving! I am excited to share Part I of our sessions at the Carlson Family's horse farm today, when families gather to give thanks. Our family went to NJ to photograph and enjoy their splendid horse farm. We had four shoots over the weekend and I have so much more to share, including baby Savannah's 1st portrait session, Haley and her horses and the fine art landscapes. For now I am going to go grab a mimosa and enjoy this beautiful Thanksgiving Day!
We wish you all a restful day and the comforts of a good meal with family and friends.

Nina and Michael| Married!
As we get ready to enjoy a meal with friends and family this week I am compelled to share as many fun family memories on the blog as I can.
Introducing Nina and Michael! They were married on Halloween weekend in Gloucester and celebrated at the Cruiseport. It was a blustery cold day, and our wishes to shoot seaside were blown away, but that didn't stop anyone from having fun. And that is what it is all about!
Nina and Michael get ready to see the rest because they are coming soon:)

Fall Family Sessions | The McDonnells and Friends
Mimi and Louise are best friends and they are each others 1st sons godmothers as well. So a tandem photo session was a perfect idea. They are like family, and their four little boys are adorable together. I wanted to share so many more, because there were amazing candid moments too. But that will have to be a surprise for Mimi and Louise to see. I am scurrying to share this post because tomorrow is the kick off of Mimi's Holiday Trunk Show featuring Pears and Bears. She is my hook up for the beautiful clothing I save for portraits of our own children. And many of the clothes in these photos. So I am thrilled to share these with her in time.
With holiday shopping underway can I be the first to say Happy Holidays!?
