I just spent three weeks in Chile by myself.  Well, I went by myself, but I don’t remember ever being alone.  It was the trip of a lifetime.  If someone told me it was going to be this good, I’d never have believed them.  New friends around every corner, hysterical laughing for three weeks, love, adventure… everything I could have hoped for. 
Here are just a few of my favorite shots from the trip.

Look who finally made it!  All of two weeks late, here’s new and perfect Sophie. She wanted to make sure everyone was ready.  Especially her big brother who happens to be a boxer, Tyson.
She’s here. She’s precious.  We’re grateful.
Enjoy.

There was one spot of light in the middle of Sophie’s new room.  And who more deserving of a spotlight?

Add this to the list of miracles:  Baby Sam!  I photographed Maureen last month when she was perfectly pregnant.  It was so wonderful to return a month later and to meet Sam.
Here is one photograph from her maternity shoot and a few from Sam’s debut.
Enjoy.

When a snow storm was due to hit during our shoot, Patricia and her family thought it was perfect timing.  I totally agree.  We headed over to Larz Anderson Park in Brookline and had a great time.  Sledding, snow ball fights, and record low temperatures.  Must be winter in Boston.
enjoy.
