Robert + Genevieve + Phoenix || Boston Commons Holiday Card Portrait Session || Boston, MA

We perhaps waited till it was too cold in Boston for this shoot (whoops!) and the cold definitely pushed us indoors.  But it was great to spend time with Genevieve -- a close friend from my sister's University of Florida days.  Somehow the Floridians have ended up in the coldest of cities, but Phoenix's happy smile (and grumpy tears) were more than enough to make it all worth it (and keep us laughing).  On the technical side it was a little tough -- the apartment where we shot the Christmas tree pics was not well lit at all and it took some maneuvering to try to suck up as much light as we could.  But Phoenix with that hat and those lights -- c'mon!  Again, he made it all worth it.

 

Juve + Chris + Elyse || Family Portrait Session || New York, NY

Imagine that you are casually flipping through a J Crew catalog and come across the most perfectly coordinated family in what quickly becomes your Fall blazer must haves.  You chuckle to yourself thinking "no family could ever look this put together" -- finding some comfort in the fact that no such perfection could exist in the real world. Well ... sorry to burst your bubble, such perfection actually exists (lol). It was a privilege to capture some shots of this family. If you look closely, in almost every picture where either parent is not looking at each other or the camera, they are looking away at Elyse.  She's quite the charmer and this darling shoot was an absolute blast.
