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.

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!

Sassatelli Family

Hi, everyone!

Oh how I just adore the family I’m blogging about today. I’m lucky enough to say I’ve been photographing the Sassatelli family for 6 years now! I truly can’t believe how much their daughter has grown and changed since I first met them.   (below is only one year ago)


Andrea is 6 years old and she reads like a champ. Most of the time you’ll find her reading or creating something amazing out of stuff around the house.

And, it goes without saying, Jeanette and John have become my friends over the time we’ve worked together. It’s hard to not become friends with someone like Jeanette, she’s a beautiful person, smart and a great friend. Dad and husband, John, is just as great. He’s an engineer and plays the bagpipes around their home all the time.

When Jeanette called me to take their photos again, I couldn’t stop smiling the rest of the day.

And as for the day of the shoot, I had so much fun! They had a pretty great time, too.

“Spring is gorgeous when the leaves are starting to blossom and the weather finally gets warm,” says Jeannette.

Okay, enough text. Check out the wonderful Sassatelli family!

 

Love Yourself in Pictures

If you can’t remember the last time you loved photos of yourself… then now is the time to book a new session. I am your personal cheerleader and I will show you all the beauty of you in our session. We’ll laugh, we’ll play and in the end you’ll ooh and ahhh at your photos.

2 upMorin2Bookings are limited, as sessions fill up quickly. Have you seen your friends photos from their vacations? The groups of photos on the beach that are larger than life on their walls? Jealous? You don’t have to be. A photograph in your home is like a mini escape. You walk by, catch a glimpse of the moment and you’ll remember all of the best parts (or worst). Photographs are powerful and when you love yourself in them, they do wonders to boost your self esteem, even on your worst days.

Let me show you how you can make your home a self empowering castle for your every day life. Contact me today!

March and More…. Thank You

Wow, January 8th was the last time I posted? been a long time. Lots of things have happened and more growing still is happening…

First and foremost I need to thank everyone that made the Boudoir Marathon a success!
The location was a stunning Mansion in Falmouth and I owe the biggest Thank you to Judy Shaw for lending it to me.
The lighting was perfect, the rooms were amazing and the photos came out stunning!

I had a great time, learned a lot about what I would do differently next time, and enjoyed each and every beautiful woman!!

Next, I am getting ready to teach a photography class to Realtors TOMORROW! Can you believe it? It’s been over a year since I taught photography to anyone, and I’m refreshing my memory with staging and using point and shoot cameras but I’m really excited. I can’t wait!

Also, I have two new assistants, ready and excited to start working with all of 2013 clients. They are great and will be introduced at a later date. Combining minds around photography has always been one of the best parts about the business. The creativity that comes out of talking, playing and working together is amazing and always helps me to continue to do more. Offer more. and just laugh more.

Bookings into the 2013 season for Weddings and Portraits are well on their way. One of my most recent bookings is for June with Abby and Jason. Just listening to their wedding plans has me SO excited for summer. A combination of Old cars, yard games, and a beautiful location… It’s going to be so much fun. They always have me smiling when I leave a meeting with them!

Let’s see… anything else? Oh Yes! The Flash Drives are ordered! No more Cd’s (unless you’re buying only a few digital files). But Weddings are all Flash drives now. Safer, cleaner, and easier to use on most computers and devices. I’ll post photos once they arrive.

I am also a new member to PPOCC Professional Photographers of Cape Cod. http://www.ppocc.org/ppocc/index.php
This is a big deal for me because it’s getting to be around more like-minded professionals that put their clients first! I can’t wait to attend the first meeting.

I truly feel blessed to be back home on Cape Cod and working in the best profession.
I will attempt to blog a little bit more… but wedding season is starting in March for Michelle Kaye Photography which usually makes it a busy time…

So Don’t miss a moment, call me today to make sure we have your photography investment on the calendar.

All The Best!
Michelle
