Family Visit

Last weekend, some friends and family visited me from Arizona. We had a great time visiting Boston, Salem, and Cambridge. It was a busy weekend, but all I can remember is that we seemed to be eating the whole weekend. In addition to the restaurants we visited, we went to Trinity Church, Boston Common, Boston Public Garden, and walked the Freedom Trail. All in all, it was memorable weekend.

Apple Picking

I went apple picking for the first time and as a girl from Arizona, it was very exciting. The apples were delicious and I ate several straight from the tree. The orchard was picturesque and as there were two photography students in our group, the event naturally turned into a photo session. My friend Jay Lublang and I photographed our friends from The Sandbox Sessions, Tess and Liz. They were such good sports and we all had a wonderful time. We capped the morning off with sweet cider donuts and apple cider. It was a delicious morning!

Another ‘couples shoot’ we did for class was at the Commander’s Mansion in Watertown, MA. The venue was an absolutely beautiful location to shoot at, although the grounds were wet from recent rain. This couple I shot did not mind the damp grounds so I shot them entirely outside. They were so quirky and fun. I had such a good time photographing them.

Sweethearts: Nate + Jen

As part of our weddings module at school, we had to practice “engagement” shoots. A very nice couple was brought in for us to photograph. As a class, we walked around Waltham, MA and shot the couple in several different environments. We were able to practice not only posing and directing clients, but the technical side as well. I love the shots that I got, but I think that is mostly because the couple was so cute together.          

Brunch Shoot

For my friend Annabelle’s food blog Belle’s Best Bites, I went over for brunch and photographed the food prep. It was a delicious meal and the ingredients were fantastic to photograph as they were so bright and fresh. Plus, what brunch would be complete without a sparkling berry drink to go with the meal?

Architecture Interiors

A few weeks ago in photography class, we learned to shoot architecture interiors. As a class, we were sent to the Gore Place in Waltham, MA. The different shots we had to deliver were wide-angles, portraits and details. We could use strait exposures or HDRs. My best shots turned out to be a combination of the two. Below are some of my interiors.
