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.

Walsh Family

Another family is up on the blog! This time it’s the Walsh Family!
Gorgeous and stylish are two perfect words to describe them.

We were lucky enough to have low tide at Bayview Beach, in Dennis MA.
Cape Cod Ma has many great beaches for photos but I think Mayflower Beach and Bayview Beach in Dennis are the most beautiful. Yes, I’m a little bias being from Dennis but at low tide the kids have the best little pools to play in and the view is gorgeous!

The sky didn’t disappoint either. Their theme of blue and white is a classic for cape cod and their little girl’s stripes were so adorable. As we played, they gave me the best giggles and smiles.
I also think there might be a little photographer in their future! She took a few photos of her parents and her grandma. Not bad little one!

The clouds were amazing and the rays of sun shining through felt like little blessings for our photos. Enough about our shoot… time for the photos!

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.

 

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
