Dan + Melanie | Engaged

  • Boston University

We were looking at the forecast and my heart sank when I saw that there were going to be wind gusts of 40-50mph. Boston was going to be under a wind advisory when Michael and I were flying in for an engagement session. I’ve said it before, but WIND is almost worse than RAIN! Wind is very hard to control while rain can be combatted with a cute porch, a classic black umbrella and some Hunter boots! There isn’t a lot that you can do to control WIND and so that is why this session is so amazing! We shot this entire session in between wind gusts AND with a very high-energy puppy….

Graham’s Fifth Month

This is my favorite turning point during the first year of development. The fifth month is when my baby starts feeling like a BABY and less like a newborn. He started doing so many amazing things in a matter weeks. It seemed like everyday I would notice something new and fun about him. Graham is our more chill child…. but he also has a habit of panicking. It sounds like a contradiction, right? He’s so observant and relaxed but when he does decide to get upset, it sounds like he’s hyper-ventilating! Evy would SHRIEK and he has a PANIC cry. I don’t think either type of cry is pleasant but it’s so interesting to see how different our kids are in the small and the big ways.
