On an early winter afternoon I was met with sunny smiles from the fun loving Dooling family at their home just outside of Boston. Retired Boston Celtics player Keyon Dooling and wife Natosha Dooling are the busy parents of four beautiful children and owners of Sportsality online sports magazine (check them out on Facebook.) Despite the freezing temperatures, the children rallied and we had a blast outside. Running, jumping, and snuggling with Dad in between shots kept everyone warm. When we had enough of the cold, we went inside, and created a little snow magic! Upon leaving Keyon said that it was their “most fun photo shoot ever” – exactly what I was aiming for!
Wow, the months have just flown by since I last uploaded to my blog. So grateful for all my fabulous clients who keep me so busy all the time that I can just about manage Facebook, never mind about the blog and website.. There is always something new and exciting to photograph each day. Thank you for looking and enjoy!

What an incredible weekend of glorious weather. I’ve been shooting every night on different beaches and this was the last shot tonight. I am looking forward to Autumn but the warm nights and soft air have been delightful.
I had the pleasure of photographing the Gillis family at Plimouth Plantation on a night that saw summer slipping away late in the day and a snap in the air that matched the spring in six year old Nathan’s step. Smiling from ear to ear – what could be more adorable than a young boy so full of joy? And then there is beautiful preteen Anna with her gorgeous blue eyes and sweet nature. Thanks Erin and Noah for letting me share the night with your family. Enjoy!
Beautiful night on a Cape Cod beach with a family I have had the pleasure of photographing and watch grow for the past seven years. Lucky Me!

I LOVE doing this shot! Can’t you just hear the squeal of laughter!
Meet Addie and Nathan! Addie is a sweet and charming eight year old with a twinkle in her eye and great fashion sense. Hopefully we will see her performing in Summer Stock Theater next year in Plymouth. Nathan is six and I was reminded every second of our time together of how much I love what I do. Nathan has Cockayne Syndrome (see below). We all worked together to get a smile from Nathan and when he smiled he lit up my heart.
Cockayne Syndrome (CS) is a rare genetic disorder characterized by poor growth, premature aging, microcephaly, sensitivity to sunlight and developmental delays just to name a few. These children have a shorten life span due to the multiple complex medical issues (average of 4 – 7 years). There are only 200-300 children in the world with this rare genetic syndrome.

Sweet, funny, smart & charming… those are the first words that come to mind when I think of three year old Isaac! I don’t think he will be a heartbreaker – no way – the whole world is going to fall in love with him!
