I believe in celebrating love and life. Not just on the big days, but in every day moments. The smell of fresh baked cookies reminds me of cozy afternoons at my grams house, and the sound of the ice cream truck sparks a magical feeling in my heart I never want to lose. 

Some would say family is everything to me, and they are probably right. Mornings spent curled up on the couch, snuggling, and watching movies are treasured. Heated family game nights crowded around the dinning room table, and lazy Sundays on the lake are some of my favorite memories.

I capture images to remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in creating photographs on wedding days that show the beauty and the love of the people in them.

Even with it's ups and downs, your life, your story, this adventure, it's beautiful and I can't wait to create images to show that! 

IT's NICE TO MEET YOU

I love my birthday! Getting woken up at 12:01 with my family calling to wish me the best day brings me all the joy! Even though they know we'll be sitting around a table celebrating with breakfast in just a few hours. It's not because we do something extravagant, its because it's a day I'm guaranteed to celebrate with my favorite people. PS it's on July 1st in case you were wondering. If I can't celebrate my birthday, I love celebrating other peoples birthdays. I just love birthdays in general and I don't think I will ever out grow it.

Birthdays

On a road trip to Arizona, I found my love for waffles! I also discovered my ability to find the good in every situation. Exhausted, and crying, at the bottom of the delves corkscrew (appropriately named) I looked up and saw the keeper of the canyon giving me the strength I needed to make my way back to the very top. A spontaneous trip to California taught me some of the best made memories come during the moments you can't plan for. Flying over Yosemite with my sisters was a dream I never knew I had. Our life is one big adventure where is yours taking you?

I joke she runs our life. Do you know Rosey, from the Jetsons? It's just like that except she doesn't clean.. well not yet I'm sure that feature is coming!

We are a little competitive (okay a lot competitive) when it comes to games, but it's all in fun. We have too many favorites, it just depends on who is playing. Operation, Monopoly, Cribbage, Battleship, and Labyrinth are a few we all LOVE! We are also big fans of Spoons, Cards Against Humanity, Corn Hole, Telistrations, and Salad Bowl when all our family and friends are together.

Growing up our family did not have a lot of money, but somehow every year my parents found a way to take all 6 of us (yes we are just like the Brady Bunch) camping.We drove nearly 4 hours to stay in tents and a lean-to for a week at Moosehead Lake. It was the best week of the summer, and to this day I love camping. I will admit we now stay in a camper, but the moments on the lake, and the s'mores around the campfire are the same; Nabisco graham crackers, with a perfectly golden marshmallow cooked over hot coals, and six squares of Hershey's chocolate.

Michael calls it an addiction, and my kids have my coffee order memorized... they even know my favorite baristas at Dunkin'. Luckily there is no shortage of Dunkin' locations in the area, but in a pinch lots of sugar and really good creamer will tide me over!!!

Can we agree that one of the best parts about being a grown up is that you can say, yup, today on this super ordinary day we get to eat our dessert FIRST! Yes I think asparagus is delicious, but I also think Big Licks ice cream in OOB should always be enjoyed before dinner. My favorite part about Valentines Day (other than it's the day Michael proposed!) is the chocolate covered strawberries Shaws always makes. I get about 4 dozen... don't judge, I share, but how can you not when they only have them once a year! On all the other days turtle or vanilla bean cheesecake are also great options. Clearly I just like sweet treats.

I am always in the mood to watch this show. When the them song comes on Brook and I belt it out. Back in the day Carrie and I watched it together every Thursday night. On our famous Gilmore Girl weekends we watch as many episodes as possible, while eating insane spreads of food. If it's not already clear, I was a fan before the Netflix revival. My favorite episode is, You Jump I Jump Jack. And I will forever be team Logan, because that love story is as destined as Luke and Lorelai.

Jodi Picoult is my favorite author, I love how in depth all of her stories are and that you always get different perspectives. I will say her major plot twists are gut wrenching, and I normally find my self with a box of tissues crying irrationally. I also love Audible (again Alexa controls our lives) it is one of my favorite apps. I don't have as much time, as I'd like, to sit down with a book and get lost in a good story, but with Audible I have access to so many books I can listen to while editing, or folding laundry.

Who doesn't like getting flowers? Having fresh flowers in the house always puts a smile on my face. Peonies are my favorite! I love giving flowers just as much as I like to receive them. I often get flowers for Michael just to remind him of how much he means to me. When in need of something to give, you can never go wrong with a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers.

I feel in love with photography long before I ever picked up a camera. I would sneak into my parents closet to dig out an old picnic basket my mom filled with snapshots of our lives.

There were old slightly discolored photographs, worn around the edges of my parents laughing in an unfamiliar living room. I would sit on that closet floor for hours, taking in every moment that to most seemed ordinary, but to my mom and I, they were treasures.

She would eventually find me buried in piles of pictures, scold me because I knew I was't supposed to be in there, but inevitably start telling me my favorite stories as we put each image back in the basket.

I think your images deserve to be printed, and hung on walls for years to come. Or tucked away in a picnic basket treasured for generations.
