This is Gus. He'll crack you up with his beard pulling, happy, giggly ways. And his parents? Well, they are pretty awesome, too.
Stick with me on this. Everything turns out ok.
I’m driving. The Ted Williams tunnel. Sunday afternoon traffic. My husband Steve in the passenger seat. Pippa in her car seat, checking out the lights coasting by.
Suddenly, we all flew forward. We had been hit from behind by a car that was doing 80mph. It felt like driving on ice, car slipping left and right. I can’t remember a few seconds but then I was back, Steve calling 9-11.
We were in an accident without answers. The who’s and why’s, we’ll never really know. Only that the state trooper told us, "the other driver had a medical emergency” and we had zero injuries.
Moments like this make you adjust your view on the world. You remember to see things more clearly. Appreciate the little things.
And think: We. Were. So. Lucky.
How does this tie into my work?
Looking back at my year of photographs from 2017, every wedding and family shoot left a mark on me. Had me thinking a little deeper. I departed every session with the thoughts, hopes of my couples drifting into my mind. The speeches. The looks. The quick gestures. I left buzzing from the excitement and the joy and the happy tears.
Often, I have a hard time getting to sleep at night after shoots. Thinking about the good stuff in life.
And always thinking: I. Am. So. Lucky.
Thank you to each and everyone one of my clients.
with Love, from Katie
I may have laughed just as much as a I clicked my shutter during my time with Katie and Matt the other week. I love their sense of humor and Leo certainly helped to keep the good times going. I am so happy for these two as their family grows!
Jess, Chris, Sidney and I met up the other week for some photos on their favorite beach. With some feet in the waves, hands in the sand and perfect evening light, we captured a some photos of this special space and time in their lives.
One of the best things about being a photographer is that you get a small glimpse into people's lives. Having the chance to visit Chloe at home with her parents, Cole and Kiera, was one of those times. Seeing my friends with their baby, all smiles and love, it's clear that Chloe has made her mark on her parents' hearts. Lots of love to these three! Also, Cole and Kierra are amazing photographers!

One of my favorite things about being a photographer is staying in touch with clients. I get the biggest thrill hearing how their lives evolve through the years, seeing their families grow and remembering the people from their wedding day. So, I was delighted with Liz and Adam invited me to their home to photograph their new baby boy, Landon, who is absolutely perfect.
