briana + taylor

briana + taylor are simply two of my favorite little girls and they got all posed and pretty for their annual holiday portrait.  this is my second year photographing these ladies and what natural models!  they had lots of giggles and poses to share so made my job super easy.

some of my readers requested details on my camera set-up so for those interested, see below.  the portraits were naturally lit by a huge window in their toy room.

camera - nikon d600
lens:  50mm f/1.4
ISO:  400
aperture:  f/4 (set on aperture priority with 1/3 stop over-exposed)
post-processing:  radlab effects, my own special recipe which i named "christmas coolness"

into the woods

wandered through the woods in western MA.  stumbled upon a hunk in grey cashmere and his family who guided me along a secret path to garnet rock.  oak, maple and birch leaves covered the forest floor  and crunched beneath our steps.  sun filtered through the stand of bare branches.

i love fall.

sitting at the top of garnet rock

happy birthday, petey!  i love you.

betty + steve engagement shoot

meet betty and steve.  they love each other.  they love to travel.  and they love whimsy.  

the location is rockefeller state park in upstate new york.  i put together a fall-inspired bouquet for the shoot that was muted but incorporated the elements + colors of the season.  we couldn't have picked a better day for the pictures.  actually, it was a perfect fall day.

the north shore

some pictures taken last february in the north shore of boston.  the landscape was absolutely surreal but the temperature was brutally frigid.
