Tues July 27 at 8:47pm - Getaway

This weekend we took our first kid-free vacation since becoming parents. Below are some photos from our stay at the Portland Harbor Hotel.

Family Photography at Tufts

We had a blast shooting with Lyndsay, Thomas, and little Chloe. Isn't she the definition of adorable? Our toddler knows Chloe from the local Fit4Mom workout class. Trying to help, Henry called out "CHEESE!" whenever I lifted the camera.

Tues May 12 at 7:05am - The New Guy

This weekend I picked up Canon's newest lens, the 50mm f/1.8 STM. With a smooth Stepper Motor focusing system, a metal mount, and seven rounded aperture blades, this guy is my favorite "nifty fifty."

Mon May 11 at 9:29pm - In Memoriam

"...Terraced thousands died, shaking scythes at cannon. / The hillside blushed, soaked in our broken wave. / They buried us without shroud or coffin / And in August the barley grew up out of the grave."  - Seamus Heaney

Sun May 10 at 10:44am - Mother's Day

Has it really been a year since my last post? I have the best excuses: we moved, had a baby, and survived the snowiest winter in Boston history. The credit of course goes entirely to my wife Ruth who has blessed and inspired me every day, and none more than that November morning when she handed me a little boy. When he looked up at me I saw something in his eyes that changed me forever...Then this morning he ate his first solid food (avocado), and I was reminded that eating a new food is an awful lot like parenthood. It's strange and messy and wonderful.

Coastal Wedding August 2013

I was honored to help Nicole Baas Photography with an August wedding in coastal Massachusetts. Lovely weather and a reception on the Salisbury Beach pavilion made for some great beach photos. I liked the ice cream stand and the ocean breeze catching the bride's veil. But I still can't get over those angelic flower girls.
