Dandelion Wild Photography 2017 Highlights - Happy New Year - Central MA Photographer - Massachusetts Photographer

2017 Collage.JPG

2017 was an incredible year! We were finally able to pay off all of our credit card debt from building our house and we were able to complete the studio which took much longer than we had originally planned. But it's done and I can finally snuggle all the newborns and babies!

We escaped to Florida to explore Disney World for our family vacation! We welcomed our very first nephew into the world. I decided to go back to school to complete my master's degree. My in-laws moved in for over a month and then found their dream home in Florida. Jeff and Lauren came home from California to visit and stayed with us. I turned 30. We booked another trip out to California to visit them. I worked my butt off between juggling family, going back to school, my two jobs, and my children's busy schedules.

Although 2018 will force me to limit the number of sessions I'll be able to schedule, I look forward to all the craziness it's about to bring.

2017 was my year of accomplishments and achievements. This 2018, I'm not going to make any resolutions but I do plan on making it my year of health. Now that the girls are bigger and are ready for adventure we have made a list of hiking trails we would like to conquer. So our goal is to take them all on before the end.

I hope your 2017 brought you lots of love, health, and that feeling of getting things done. We all work so hard to provide for our families and ourselves that it's important to take the time to enjoy what little free time we do have.

Lots of things on our agenda already for this coming year, I'm excited, but I'm going to slow it down a bit, take in each day, and hopefully take lots of pictures! <3

Of all the wonderful things 2018 could bring, I really hope one of those things is you!

Happy New Year!

Mother's Day Mini Sessions

Mother's Day Mini Sessions will soon be in full swing! This year, Mother's Day Minis are all about family. That's what mom's love most right? So, these sessions are not limited to moms and their children; it's for mommas who want an updated family photo, a few of just her kids, a few of herself with her kids, and maybe a few of herself with the man that helped her start it all! Or maybe helped her rebuild it all, whatever dynamic your family may bring. Even bring old Fido along for the fun! Everyone knows I love my furbabies!

Whatever it is that momma wants, momma is getting! (In regards to her Mother's Day family photos anyway!) :)

Mother's Day is so special. We work so hard to make sure everyone and everything is taken care of, we deserve at least one day to be recognized for that. <3 My girls are so sweet, they want nothing more than for me to be happy at every waking second of every single day. I don't know about you, but that's just not possible for me. I'm not the happiest person when I get up in the morning...so my girls kindly wake me up with big smiles and shower me with lots of hugs and kisses before they ask me to make them breakfast...immediately...before their stomachs eat themselves.

On Mother's Day...it's like that times infinity. They want to be a part of everything that day. From the moment I wake up to the moment I go to bed. They attempt to make me breakfast, draw me beautiful pictures, pass me sweet notes, try to help me around the house, etc. Tremendous effort is evident. These girls are my world and on Mother's Day, they remind me that I'm theirs too.

These times are so fleeting. I wish they would just slow down. But they won't. And there's nothing we can do to even make a dent in the speed in which time travels.

The closest we can get to freezing time...is allowing someone to take that photo. <3

Allow me. <3

Massachusetts Newborn Photographer - Dandelion Wild Photography - Newborn Baby Girl

Oh sweet little Addy! I had a blast with this peanut! She slept like a champ so I was able to do so many poses and setups! <3 I just had to share a few more of her. She's just perfect right down to her little baby toesies! <3

She was the most perfect little girl.  She slept right on through her session and barely made a peep.  She had a few snacks in between to refuel and then she was out like a light again.

This family was so sweet! And mom is absolutely gorgeous! They were both naturals when it came to caring for their little human being.

Like they've had her for years. <3

M Family Maternity

I met up with this gorgeous family and captured Rosie's maternity photos.  At the time these were taken they were impatiently waiting to find out the gender of their baby! I love surprise genders!  I waited to find out with both of our girls and I swear the wait is worth it!

Rosie has been my best friend since we graduated high school.  Not long... ;)...but she's a better friend to me than most. Here she is with her pup and husband, Tim.  I could not have picked a better man for her.  He makes her the happiest.  Something I had always hoped for for her.

This spot is gorgeous.  I used to spend a lot of time hiking and exploring the woods.  I remember discovering this little spot back in high school.  Now every time I'm in this area, I visit it.  It's very peaceful and serene, as you can see. 

Rosie's husband and I share a favorite animal.  We both LOVE moose.  We were both hoping one would stumble out of the woods for a drink and photo bomb them, but unfortunately, that didn't happen. Maybe next time.

Ugh I can't get over all this gorgeousness.  These two were very sweet together.  Just look at them. They are absolutely madly in love.

Their little babe arrived on June 29 and they are the parents of a beautiful baby boy.  I can't wait to meet the little man.  <3
