Can we all agree that fall, and Halloween, are the best? This fall we had a ton of fun with Augie, now almost 21 months, at Craven Farm, picking out pumpkins, playing on trucks and tractors, visiting animals, and enjoying the weather. His BFF Logan makes an appearance in these photos, too – Logan and his family are moving just a few blocks away from us and I am so excited that these boys will be growing up together!
At 21 months, Augie talks up a storm. His comprehension and vocabulary astound me! His loves remain trucks (really, anything with wheels), books, balls, and stuffed animals. He loves his music class and a kids gymnastics class, but is equally happy driving cars around our house.
For Halloween, my sister made him an owl costume. It is the most beautiful thing ever and August was adorable in it. He spent the whole day saying, “Whoo whooooo,” “trick-or-treat,” “happy Halloween,” and “búho costume!” (Búho is Spanish for owl.) Halloween also gave us the opportunity to sport a family costume with Tyler as the tree, me as the nest, and Augs as our little búho – and we have a little family announcement to make, as well, about what’s in momma owl’s nest these days … scroll to the bottom of the post to find out!
As a family photographer, I get a lot of questions from clients about where their photo shoots should take place. While a super-picturesque location can provide an amazing backdrop, sometimes the best place for photos can be found while simply strolling around your own neighborhood. For Bennett’s 18 month and fall family photos, we stuck close to home, walking around Seattle’s Capitol Hill, and ended up in his very own living room. The results are fantastic! Happy 18 months, Bennett. You are a lover of leaves and apples, books and blocks, and your “surprise” face is absolutely adorable!

What is better than playing in fall leaves? It sure looks like fun, doesn’t it? Sisters Sarah and Katie enjoyed an autumn romp last November and I was there to partake in the laughter. You’ve seen these two before, when Sarah was just a weensy baby – it’s crazy how time flies!
November can be chilly, so we spent some time inside, as well:
Thanks for having me back to play, girls! Hope to see you again soon!
Let’s go back to a lovely late fall day in Harvard Yard, one of my favorite places to shoot in Cambridge … Max and family were up for some laughs, some rugby-ball tossing, and lots of fun! Max looks ready to enroll, don’t you think?
I got to photograph Max and family at the very beginning of my photo career, and, as always, I’m floored by how much he’s grown! Check out Max two years ago.

Earlier this fall I had a wonderful time with James and Kim at their Bedford Village Inn wedding up in New Hampshire. What a beautiful place!

See their engagement session!

It was the magic hour and the wonderful Sean and Melissa trekked out to the gorgeous Medford Fells with me for their equally magical engagement session! It was a fairly chilly autumn day, but Melissa braved it in a lovely sleeveless dress, and we warmed up a bit as we hiked around, so it wasn’t too uncomfortable! The Fells are amazing – really lovely, especially in the fall, and they made the perfect backdrop for these lovebirds. Congrats on your engagement, friends!
I am excited to share my brother- and sister-in-law’s wedding! It was a wonderful weekend in New Hampshire and everything was just beautiful. It was such a pleasure to welcome Michelle into the family! She worked so hard on all the gorgeous details and they all came out so well. Some of my favorite moments of the day were Michelle getting ready with all her lovely lady attendants, the ceremony processional with bubbles, the enthusiastic wedding party, the Williams brothers’ impromptu song/speech, a high-five post cake cutting, Michelle’s mom’s reaction to the father-daughter dance, and the Middlebury College tradition of stripping off shirts whenever you hear Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” – that really brought me back! So many good memories. Without further ado … Michelle and Evan!
