One of my favorite beautiful phenomenons of life is that it (life) just keeps getting better..for everyone.. always.  The best is yet to come ALWAYS!  Life is so rad.
Katie and her sons, Garrett and Griffin,  went through a super hard time a few years ago, and I bet there were times she wondered how she'd get through.  Fast forward just a few years, she and her new wonderful man have a brand spankin new son, Michael, and they're scheduled to be married in a year.  Life could NOT be better for these guys, and I couldn't be happier for them.  The best is yet to come, everyone.  For all of us!

Josh and Lindsey will go down as one of my all time favorite couples to work with.  I was lucky enough to photograph their wedding on Martha's Vineyard (which got published in Martha's Vineyard Weddings magazine which is always fun and cool), then I was able to go over to their beautiful new home and photograph them when they were expecting their first baby.  Recently I was really REALLY lucky and got to photograph Lindsey and Josh in their first couple days as parents to the perfect and very lucky, Vivian.   This post is both their maternity shoot and Vivian's first photo shoot.
I love this family.  They make everyone they love feel like family.  There's not a better gift to give the world.  Good luck, guys.  I love you very much.  THANK YOU!!

Marilyn was due with twins, a boy and a girl, on November 4th, 2014.  But almost four months early, Jeremiah and Elizabeth were born on July 24th, 2014 at a hospital in Boston. 
Marilyn tells me that Jeremiah was the sweetest, chillest little guy.  At not even two pounds he was pure gentle love.  Elizabeth, Lizzy, was feisty and strong, a fighter from the first breath.

Some lives are 100 years, some are 35 years, others are 12 years, and some lives are nine days long.  I do not pretend to understand it, but it is something we have to trust.  In just nine days, Jeremiah taught his strong, resilient, kind mama just how wonderful a man could be.  His life has opened his mother's heart not to break it, but to expand it infinitely in a tender, loving, gentle way.  Sometimes lives are nine days long.

Lizzy, on the other hand, is weighing in at the chub club at a whopping 7 pounds.  And if you've never seen a living chocolate chip you're about to.  Lizzy is my idol.  Well, Marilyn is, but Lizzy is the side kick all my idols have.  She's feisty and strong, determined and adorable, and her toes are wicked cute and I want to shove them all in my mouth and eat her whole.  And she already has great hair.

I hung out with Marilyn and Lizzy at the NICU at Beth Israel Hospital for a bit.  Lizzy will be coming home in a couple weeks.  I assume we'll be cheering her on in her amazing, beautiful, and long life.  Right alongside her mama.

Marilyn, it was a pleasure and an honor to be there for you and your daughter.  You are a strong, beautiful, kind soul and you are SURROUNDED by love.  The best is yet to come, my friend.  THE BEST IS YET TO COME!!!!!!  YOU ARE LOVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have had the *GREAT* pleasure of being able to photograph Abbie and Ryan in some of their happiest recent times (namely engagement and marriage!) and it I was soooo insanely stoked when they told me that Willow, their daughter, had arrived.  I love Abbie and Ryan like a mix of family and dear friends.  I could not be happier for them.. or for Willow.  She is the luckiest girl in the world destined for a life of greatness: beauty, wit, brains, and love.  Fuck ya.  That's so awesome.   Good luck, guys.  I hope to see you SOON!  I LOVE YOU!
