Lisa & Shane: Boston engagement



This little blog of mine has definitely slowed down over the past few weeks. The holiday madness is over and now I am down to my last couple of weddings/shoots that I get to share with you for awhile.  It’s always so crazy to me how my life goes from full blown 5th gear craziness for the months of Sept-December and then comes to a screeching, tire squealing, rubber track leaving , smoking halt once January comes.  In about a month I will be wandering my house, unshowered, looking for a purpose in life and waiting until it is time to make dinner so I feel like I contributed to the world. It’s the same every year. I welcome these first couple of weeks of January though when I feel like I can get a handle on my life and my business and not feel like I am hanging on by a rapidly fraying rope (like I feel like in mid November, for example).  I like looking forward to all of the awesome couples that I have coming up in 2017. It’s definitely going to be a good year:)

My last engagement session of 2016 was with my Lisa and Shane.  Ummm…I’m not entirely sure that there is a sweeter, more enthusiastic, more bubbly girl in the world than my Lisa.  We “met” over the phone and even just in a phone conversation her enthusiasm for life just radiates all around her.  There is no way not to be instantly drawn to her and I thank whatever little photography Gods there are that pointed her in the direction to my website.  Lisa and Shane took a bus in from Brooklyn on the day of our shoot. Got on a bus 6am, traveled all the way here and then hopped into my car to immediately begin shooting.  I personally, would have curled up and died at the prospect of getting in front of a camera after a 5 hour bus ride but Lisa swiped on some lipstick, put on a pair of heels, looked beautiful and laughed her way through it with the most positive attitude of anyone I have ever met.  Shane was an awesome sport and it is clear why these two people are heading into forever together. They are perfect for each other.

I swear to God. It was frightening.  2017-01-06_0016 2017-01-06_0017 2017-01-06_0018 2017-01-06_0019 2017-01-06_0020 2017-01-06_0021 2017-01-06_0022 2017-01-06_0023 2017-01-06_0024The little girl in the window KILLS me. 2017-01-06_0025 2017-01-06_0026 2017-01-06_0027 2017-01-06_0028 2017-01-06_0029 2017-01-06_0030 2017-01-06_0031 2017-01-06_0032 2017-01-06_0033 2017-01-06_0034 2017-01-06_0035 2017-01-06_0036You guys are the best.
