Josh's Bar Mitzvah - Sheraton Needham Hotel

A few weeks ago Bob from Robert Ruscansky Photography and I took a short drive to the Sheraton Hotel in Needham for Josh's Bar Mitzvah celebration. We arrived early to snap a few details before the party started.
I might mention the decorations more than once, but the guitar centerpiece with Josh's name... awesome. I want one. What a fantastic way to be welcomed to your party.
The airbrush artist painted custom T-shirts for Josh's guests based upon their individual requests. A pretty cool parting gift if you ask me.
For the guest of honor.
And then in an instant the party was in full swing...
Look at that synchronization! It's almost like the guests practiced in advance.
Josh's little sister led the blessing. She had such a great voice. It was quite possibly the cutest thing ever.
After the important stuff there was more games, more dancing, and plenty of silliness.
I'm a big fan of the green stuffed guitar, matching shades and hat.
Dad dancing with the kids...
Never forget the shutter shades. Never.
I hope you have a wonderful Friday. And don't forget your shutter shades... it's supposed to be sunny today.

Crane Estates Seaside Wedding Show

On April 17th, a friend and I traveled to The Crane Estate in Ipswich to check out their wedding show and see Anita from Viva Amore. If you're still looking for that perfect dress, Viva Amore is a wonderful place to go. Their boutique is adorable, their dresses are affordable, and they're eco-friendly! You can't lose.

I thought their display was beautiful...
The gown and veil on the staircase caught the attention of The Wicked Local and got a nod in their article about the event. I believe the words they used were "Simply elegant."

I happen to agree with them, but I'll let you decide for yourself.

Michele's Senior Portraits

Over spring break my sister came to visit me in Boston for some good old fashioned family time. And since she's graduating this summer I had to take a few senior portraits while she was here. More portraits are coming in a few weeks, but here's a teaser for now.
P.S. - It's not too late you book your senior portrait session. Email or call me to schedule your session. I promise you won't regret it!

Hannah & the Moose

One of the things I love about Boston is it's thriving music scene. With all the colleges in town there is tons of young musical talent. On Sunday I met up with some of that talent, a band by the name of Hannah and the Moose, for a fun shoot throughout the city. We started in Harvard Square and worked our way into Boston, making sure to take advantage of the scenery along the way.
I can't decide if this shot in the Gardens is my favorite...

Or if I like the colored light in this shot better.
This was the "Entourage" shot...
Thank you Sam, Hannah, Steve, Danny and Moose for a fun afternoon in the city!
