Rose Family at the Beach

Hi again, Peeps!

Let me stop for a second to tell you that I am seriously the luckiest photographer in the world. My clients are always so amazing to work with. That’s true of my session with the Rosi family, too!

I met up with them this summer at their home in Dennis and the weather was perfect for photo-taking. It was warm and sunny, with an impeding storm over the ocean, giving us very moody clouds in the distance. While the weather was fine, it was the Rosi family that made this shoot such a joy.

“Our favorite parts were the candid moments playing with the kids or enjoying the sunset and chatting.,” says Tina Rosi.

As you can see from the comments above and the photos below, this family is not only photogenic, but also a close-knit group who clearly love spending time together. They are lucky to have each other and enjoy spending as much time together as possible.

See below for some teasers from our session!

Current Quarterly at the Cape Cod Airfield

Good Morning Fall!

I have been chomping at the bit to share with you the photos from this amazing collaboration that I was lucky to be apart of.

Back in September I was approached by Amanda from the Current Quarterly and Shift, and asked if I would help with her fall season photoshoot for their quarter magazine. I was beyond excited, especially after we learned of her ideas and inspirations. Not to mention the other artists I would get to work with.

So without further ado… here is the gorgeous Fiona Murphy at the Cape Cod Airfield with Hair by Kate Scott of Hair & Lifestyle Design, Makeup by Andrea Kooharian-Simpson, Clothes by  Homegrowntrades, Stylings by Amanda Converse from Shift and Photography by Me, Michelle Kaye Photography.

McCarthy Family

Next up is the fantastic McCarthy Family.

As I drove into the parking lot, I spotted the numerous group of family members all dressed to the nines in white and navy, and a little bit of Red, White and Blue.
See if you can spot the red Cowgirl boots! Love them.

I met up with them at Seagull Beach at West Yarmouth, MA and the weather was perfect for photo-taking. A gentle breeze rustled the tall beach grass with soft puffy clouds floated over the water. The sun set behind the grass, gently brushing the sky with amazing pinks, purples and blues.  While the weather was fine, it was the McCarthy family that made this shoot such a treat.

The kids ages range from 2 years old all the way to 13 years  old. They even brought adorable Scally Caps from the grandparents trip to Ireland in April.

This is their 11th year for their family reunion on Cape Cod and I could tell they are a close-knit group who clearly love spending time together. I enjoyed being included in their play time.

 

Maldoon pups

I had the pleasure of capturing a friend’s four legged kids a few weeks ago. The weather was extremely hot and we were able to play and get great photos before it started to rain.

In a small location in Onset, MA, we walked all four legged kids to an overgrown dirt road. It was a great setting for these cute pups. They play there all the time and knew it well.

Sweet and beautiful German Shepards.

These puppies have such a strong bond with each other and with their dad, John. I adored watching him play and seeing them run and listen.

Kelly Family

Welcome guys and gals!

The fourth of July, holiday weekend brought with it many splendid events, including an amazing  session with the Kelly family. Large family portraits sometimes bring with it a need for being loud and trying to get everyone to listen. That did not happen with this incredible family. The kids were well behaved and adorable as ever! Playing with them was one of the highlights of my holiday.

Due to high winds we needed to change plans from the open beach to the Harwich Overlook, at Whychmere Harbor . I love shooting at the Harwich Overlook  because the clouds never disappoint and it’s a classic cape cod landscape. Beautiful boats and the gorgeous ocean.

For our shoot, the Kelly’s wore a mix of blues, whites and coral. Such a great choice even for a change in our location. I love how the coral pops but it all mixes together so nicely. A great choice.

It truly was an amazing photo shoot. And if any of you are considering a family session or are prepping for an upcoming session, consider contacting me today to get your family session booked before we fill up!

Okay, on to pictures of the Kelly family!

Rennie Family

Hi Everyone! How was your Fourth of July? A great weekend was had by all on my small sandy spot on Cape Cod.

I recently had a super fun session with the Rennie family. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I truly have the best clients ever! This family was no exception, either. This family played around and joked, with me and around me, making me feel like I was with my own sisters.

We met at Grays Beach in Yarmouth Port. We had to move the date because mother nature had made other plans on us. It was meant to be, however, as the sky was gorgeous for our shoot night.

I loved shooting at Grays Beach because there are rocks on the side, a great spot for kids or adults to sit/stand on. Gorgeous green marsh to one side with the ocean on the other. Sand and a long boardwalk make this spot a great location with various looks.

For our shoot, the Rennie’s brought a couple college t-shirts, where the daughter’s were attending.  I thought it was a cute touch and a really great way to keep a moment in history. When they look back they’ll be able to have a beautiful visual of where they were at that time in their history.

It truly was an amazing photo shoot.

Okay, on to pictures of the Rennie family!
