Stephanie and Dave met through mutual friends just about a year before the day of their wedding.  From the start, they pretty much knew they were meant for each other (minus those few awkward hugs/handshakes in the beginning:)) Stephanie and Dave have so much fun together and their fall wedding was a perfect reflection of that. It was such a pleasure to photograph their intimate wedding at the Sherborn Inn!

A week before the wedding the forecast said snow! We were all kind of (really?) worried, but knew we would make it work. The day came and it was definitely chilly, but no snow to be seen! Thank the Lord for a lovely fall day.:)

Steph got ready in one of the Sherborn’s gorgeous rooms, with her sister, mom and closest friends there to help. I love this reaction once the dress was on!

Stephanie and Dave chose to see each other before their ceremony. They walked towards each other smiling the biggest smiles and it was the sweetest.

Then we snatched up the last minutes of late fall light for portraits! These are some of my favorites!

Leaves, gourds and pumpkins galore! The Inn has such a classic New England feel, it really is a perfect venue for an intimate wedding.

The ceremony was a beautiful start to their marriage. God-honoring and personal, funny and heartfelt. I may have teared up a few times.

Little Jack Man! He’s growing! At our last session he was just two weeks old and he slept through the majority of our session. This time he was all smiles mixed with a little curiousness. And totally adorable.

I love when I get to photograph families in their natural habitats. I mean, their homes.:)We started the Lavana’s session in their backyard with a cozy flannel blanket and mid-afternoon sun. Once we all got a little too chilly, we moved inside and I learned about Jack’s intense love of gates and books.

Enjoy these favorites from Jack’s one year session!

I met up with this gorgeous family on a fall afternoon at Hopkinton State Park. This was my first session with them and they rocked it! Perfect pops of color and two little girlies who were SO excited to explore the area and pick the best photo spots. Thanks Shelton Family for being wonderful and fun!

The lake backdrop and setting autumn sun made me happy. And also made some great photos.

I had the opportunity to photograph the wonderful Rainville family in their own backyard a couple weekends ago. I got to their house and was immediately blown away by their gorgeous home and adorable children. The kiddos showed me around their backyard, from the fire-pit-filled-patio, to their fish pond, to their favorite hill/woods to explore. It was awesome and I absolutely LOVE how the photos turned out!!

Time and time again, yelling “tickle fight!” proves to be my secret weapon to an adorable photo. Now you know.

The whole family! The sweetest. The light was on point that evening.
