“I wanna walk and not run, I wanna skip and not fall, I wanna look at the horizon, and not see a building standing tall."

- “Cowboy take me away” by the Dixie Chicks

I thought that title was appropriate for a post including some vacation pictures. :) I started by going down the Cape for a few days with Pete and his wonderful family. We had a relaxing couple of days on the beach. We also played a lot of baseball with Brendan the future MVP.

If that doesn’t say pitch me the ball NOW, I don’t know what does. ;)

Then Faith and I had a great time photographing Liz and Craig’s engagement pictures. After we did some beach stuff I thought it would be nice to see what downtown had to offer. We got one great shot and then got in trouble for shooting on the street. Oops!

Thanks guys, we are so excited for your wedding!

Next up was Pete and my little get away to Vermont. It is so BEAUTIFUL up there! Even though while up there I got a cold, we were still able to enjoy canoeing and the sunsets.
This week, I also had the pleasure of photographing Alex for her sweet sixteen. What a great model!

That's it for now. I am going back down the Cape again this weekend until Monday. Enjoy your Labor Day!

What can always put a smile on my face?

I wanted to share one picture from my visit with my beautiful god-daughter. She is quite the character! :)

Live in Love...

I am really feeling the love this summer. Most of my shoots lately have been engagement, weddings or just couple wanting some fun summer images. Even I dragged Pete to have our pictures taken by my super talented friend Jaime (we did a little trade, today I am photographing her and her boyfriend…SO EXCITED!) I guess that’s why they call it summer love! :)

Last week I photographed my friend Jovee and her girlfriend Chrissy. I have to say I love the feeling I get from couples like them, they are so playful and fun. Plus they were totally willing to do what I thought would look cool… “Trust me, getting soaked in the waterfall that people are not supposed to go in is totally cool.”

This past weekend was Pete’s cousins wedding, where I for the first time was the guest at a wedding. I am not very good at being the guest. Gorgeous bride + Handsome groom = a very jealous Dorie. I did end up snapping a few shots though.

See, aren’t they such a GORGEOUS couple?

This week I was also able to photograph these two future heartbreakers. I think boys in general are just so funny, maybe that is my baby brothers doing. Anyway, these little guys were so much fun, jumping, running and releasing balloons.

Look at those eyes!!

Thanks Mom for letting me photograph them.

Lastly, just a note, I will be on a much needed mini-vacation from Saturday 8/18 through Tuesday 8/21. I will e out of town and most likely not have access to internet or my voicemail. Any e-mails or calls will be returned when I get back on Wednesday.
Enjoy this weekend, and savor the last tastes of summer. I know I will!!

Mcflurries all around!!!!

Well, it has been a little while since I have updated, so there are lots of new pictures and stories.

Let’s start with last week, my good friend Julie’s niece was going to be up from out west for a couple days and she asked if I could take a few shots. Look at how beautiful she is! She has the cutest smile, and her giggle will make you giggle too!

Next up are my friends Paulette and Matt. When Matt told me a few weeks ago that him and Paulette were getting married the first thing I said (after congrats of course!) was “Can I shoot your wedding?” :) They are such a fun, loving couple. I am really excited to be able to capture their special day! Last weekend we had a great time doing their engagement photos.

Last weekend was also Courtney and Paul's wedding. I only have one to share because I am still working on them:It was such a fun wedding! Thanks again for letting Faith and I come along!

Last is Pete’s adorable nephew Brendan. I have been photographing him since he was born and this past week he turned two. He is such a funny little guy. He loves to say “I found it!” and “Brendan throws like Papelbon” Would you expect any less from a Boston toddler?
Look how big he is! :)

Well that’s it for now. I am going to be the guest at a wedding for the first time tomorrow. I will still have pictures to share I am sure.

Enjoy the weather!
