How is it that its already Monday again?! The last few months have gone by super quickly, but I have a feeling that might be because of a little secret we’ve been keeping. If you’ve seen me in any insta stories lately you may have already guessed this: our family is growing this year! Baby Green (and I don’t mean the lettuce variety) will be making its arrival in June! These guys aren’t really sure what the fuss is all about but they decided it might be time to do a little light reading and find out... or maybe they already know think it’s time I did a little research so they can still get their beauty rest this summer....
Yes I’m posting yet another beach photo in the middle of the winter... but we are headed up to Rhode Island again this weekend and it got me thinking of these two and their epic Newport wedding weekend! There’s nothing like the beach in the summer and you all know the New England beaches hold a special place in my heart! . . . . #beachdaysarethebestdays #njshore #newportwedding #njphotographer #njphotography #mantalokingbeach #beachengagementphotos
Let's chat about the getting ready schedule for our #tipstuesday this week... It may seem overly cautious, but I always like to plan on having the bridal party fully dressed by an hour before go time. Yes, this means I actually want everyone fully ready to go by an hour before the time we are scheduled to leave the ceremony (or the time we need to leave for the first look). The same goes for anyone else helping the bride into her dress. Why so early? One of the biggest reasons is so that everyone is photo ready for pictures like this. Yes, your PJs are cute but something about this just feels better.

Tips Tuesday time! Another one of my most frequently asked (and most stressed over) questions is: Where should we have our session? There are so many pretty beaches, parks, and gardens in the area, BUT I always ask my clients to tell me about some of their favorite places first 💕 Where are you at your happiest? What are some of your favorite things to do as a family or as a couple? And please (!!!) don’t be afraid to dream a bit here. I’m definitely open for traveling too! Let’s chat and really talk about what might be possible. Do you travel to Cape Cod every year with your family? Then you are REALLY in luck! My bags are already packed for more Cape Cod beach days just like this one! . . . #rgptipstuesday #capecodphotographer #capecodphotography #capecodfamilyphotography #beachphotography #capecodlife #brewstermassachusetts #capecod
Are you a one book at a time person or do you have a few going at once? Between audible, the business book club selections, non-fiction reads, and the suspenseful fiction books that keep me from getting to my to do list, I’m definitely the many books at a time girl. I’m guessing this might be one of those enneagram 7 traits 🤣 At the moment I’m only working on 3 so I’m definitely up for suggestions if there’s anything you’ve loved recently! 📸 @mekinasaylor . . . . #mondaymotivation #2020books #ladybossbookclub #saylorwolfereads #hellosunshinebookclub #audible #thiscreativelife #creativeentrepreneur
And this is why I love a summer engagement session... I’ll brave the heat and humidity any day for romantic beach moments like this one. Don’t get me wrong... October’s golden light is beyond beautiful and I love the smell of spring rain and blooming lilacs... but summer will always have my heart.
