letters to our sons

Dear Christopher,

You turned 5 this week! You have been so excited for your Birthday and to finally be 5 – that’s a whole hand! As I watched you open your presents I couldn’t help but get a little teary eyed. When people ask you how old your kids are, it still sounds like you’ve got a little guy when you say one of them is 4. Overnight, that feeling of security for me having a little guy was gone. You are my youngest, my baby, my little side kick.

I’m so thankful for your imagination. You have been playing Captain America for the past two days straight. With a mask, shield and sword you are jumping from couch cushion to floor scaring away the bad guys. Always with sword swishing sound effects. Following tradition and having Birthday pancakes you also requested Trix cereal on top. Why not? It was your Birthday after all.

Love you to the moon! mommy

Happy Birthday Christopher!!!!! You made me think that next year my baby will be five too. They grow up so fast. I think that it was a perfect breakfast so that Captain America will have all the energy needed to save the world. Great images and a beautiful letter, Kristin!

Letters to our sons

Dear Ryan and Christopher,

We are lucky to live so close to the ocean. It is by far my most favorite place to spend time with you both. You love the water, looking for shells, and chasing each other in the surf. It’s nearly impossible to get Christopher out of the water. Most times you will “fall” purposely with an in coming wave just to get the anticipation of being splashed over with. The temperature of the water makes no difference to you, it’s as if you can’t get enough. The sheer joy on your face is contagious and I can’t help but join you and play tag with the tide.      Ryan, you like to take it all in. Observing the water, looking out and trying to see beyond the horizon. I love watching you stand at the edge as you let the tide come in and wash over your feet. Almost testing or playing a game with the tide and guessing if it will reach you. You love to explore and find things that have been washed up from the bottom of the ocean. Crabs, kelp and seaweed are like a science project for you to investigate. Each of your personalities are seen so easily amongst the sound of the waves.
The beach is my happy place. A place to hang out and just be. I love that we will always have memories of being together and ridiculously happy there.

xoxo,  Mommy

Beautiful, Kristin! Your images are gorgeous and make me smile on this cold northeast morning. I might be a tiny bit jealous that you live near the ocean, but I’ll just enjoy it vicariously through you and your sweet boys!

Ridiculously gorgeous and happy images. I love looking at them and reading your letter.

Kristen - March 8, 2014 - 1:19 pm

Oh Kristin! These are just beautiful images :) And I am definitely a little jealous you live so close to the ocean! Such thoughtful words about your boys. Isn’t it interesting to see how our kids are so very different?!

Gorgeous images – the second one with the surfer in the background is amazing!! I love the beach too. You and your family are so lucky to have it as your playground, your normal. What lucky little guys!

soon to be mr & mrs

This was certainly a different session for me. I’ve never taken bridal portraits before, but when the sister of the bride is a friend of yours and gives you the confidence that “you can do it!”  What do you say? I met up with them all at the brides brother’s home for an hour. It was an honor to capture this time in their lives. To photograph the grooms expression when he first sees his bride. How the bride looks into her grooms eyes.  It was a little overwhelming and absolutely wonderful all at the same time. I’m so proud of these images, and I hope that they will cherish them always. I wish them the very best!

Ridiculously Cute

I mean really. What else should the title for this post be? Little Miss G is such a happy and good natured little girl. Her mommy told me she was a sunny side up baby and has had that disposition ever since. This was a quick little session to capture all her squishable rolls. This time in her life obviously needed to be documented. I’m so looking forward to photographing this little beauty when she turns one and starts walking, and again in the fall for the Holidays. It’s a good thing I’ll get my baby fix because it took every ounce of me not to stow her away in my camera bag as I left.
