Mikaela & Russ – Engagement

I hope you’ll be able to tell from these photos – but this session was a DREAM. Mikaela and Russ made my job a piece of cake. They’re one of those couples that are just so incredibly comfortable to be around.

They’re in love and it shows. And it’s so beautiful.

Enjoy this little glimpse into some sweet moments these two shared during our time together!

Watch Hill – Agins Family Sunset Session

A couple of days before this family sunset session, as we were finalizing the schedule and location, Kim mentioned that she and Dan had been married at the Watch Hill Chapel and were interested in getting a few family photos there if possible. My response of course was “YES!” Well, it turned out to be a wonderful, picture-perfect evening with a quick detour for the girls to the carousel. Doesn’t get much more fun than this kind of summer beach night!

Take a look at this totally cute family!

wedding

Genviéve & Chris

A gathering including family, food from one of their favorite restaurants, an arbor they built themselves, and a whole lot of love – this one is going down in the records as the SWEETEST elopement ever.

There’s not a whole lot else to say except this: I had a hard time holding back tears throughout the entire ceremony.

As I walked to the yard I started to see in greater detail the place settings that had been crafted with care along with many other thoughtful touches put together for a night to remember. To top it all off I learned throughout the evening that Genviéve had done much of the planning and creating herself (did I mention they have an adorable little one with another one on the way?), talk about a serious super mom! As soon as I saw the way Chris looks at Genviéve I knew that this was one of those relationships that’s grown and become more cherished and treasured as life’s experiences have become more raw and real. Even though it felt like it was straight out of a fairytale it was very clear they’re real life is so much better. It’s a life full of family cheering them on, real life toddler laughs and inevitable break downs, dogs that hold a respected place in the family, and even more room in their hearts to continue down life’s road ready for everyone and everything that enters their story.

It was my pleasure to capture this moment in their lives.

Best wishes to the beautiful newlyweds!

cross-country interior design: photography project

Several weeks ago I had the amazing opportunity to spend some time taking photos of Zigmund the adorable short haired Chihuahua – nicknamed ‘Ziggy’. He is an absolute LOVE, to say the least. He’s also one of the most photogenic dogs I’ve ever met. Ziggy’s owner Annette enlisted me to help her with an amazing design project for her home in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the process of designing and updating she had a vision for one of her dining room walls and shortly after that we were introduced. The coolest part of this project, aside from hanging out with Ziggy and Annette climbing over rocks, up and down staircases, and running around on the docks in Noank, Connecticut, was seeing the project come to life. On her most recent trip to Las Vegas Annette sent me a few photos of the finished wall. I must admit, it’s surreal seeing one of my images literally larger than life and I am so overjoyed to know that she is pleased with the outcome. Pets are such precious companions and this photo certainly adds a modern and personal flare to the space.

It was a wonderful experience helping to bring life to a project across the country and a huge shoutout goes to Crystal at Freddie Ramon Interior Design for the incredible work done – I’m so excited to be able to see it in person one day! Take a look at how COOL this is, and let me know if anyone else is interested in a similar project because I’m totally up for it!DeBois-005DeBois-037DeBois-061DeBois-018DeBois-013unnamed (1)unnamed (2)unnamed
