Family, wedding, and maternity photography on the North Shore, MA
When I look at these photos I see so much than sweet people anticipating parenthood. I feel history unfolding, I feel the love between generations, and cycles of life in action…

I have to share what makes this photo (the one on the right in particular) so extra special to me.
First there’s the fact that this is my third shoot with Emily & Jon! I had the honor of doing their engagement shoot and incredible wedding back on 2012.
For their engagement shoot I went up to Portland, Maine in the spring and we wandered through their neighborhood park.
Practicing their first dance away from the crowds at Lynch Park on their wedding day!
A quiet moment before the party began.
But there’s event more…
That kiddo in the background? He is Emily’s nephew Emmett. I photographed him when he was in his mommy’s belly too!

And then when he was a baby,

and at Emily’s wedding,
Emily dressed and ready to go on her wedding day! See her nephew in his baby tux!
Baby was sleepy at auntie’s wedding reception.
and then when he became a wild have-to-touch-everything two year old,
and then when he became a know-it-all three year old.
Now it’s Emily and Jon’s turn and this maternity shoot is just the beginning of their family photography!
It is a gift to me to be invited into a family’s life over and over, and to celebrate their change and growth. Thank you Flowers/Gormleys—each of you so close to me heart!
Truly it is an honor to be documenting family history unfolding… The best is yet to come!
