My next photography gig

 Tomorrow I have a  photography gig. My friend's daughter will be receiving her first communion. These photos are from last year's photo shoot for another friend's daughter.

 I took some shots of the daughter with the priest and with her family. But I liked spying on the girls and boys for some candids.

It's fun to see them all dressed up in their finest dresses and veils.  All in white.

The best part is seeing them before or after the mass when they are just being themselves.

The boys are dressed up too and usually looking uncomfortable.  You know those ties are coming off the minute they leave the church.

The girls looked like little princesses. And there every move was photographed and videoed.

This is my friend's daughter, the fairest princess of them all with her lovely updo and stunning

I am hoping I  have a good vantage point inside the church. Wouldn't want to miss all those precious little moments.

Sweet photos! Love the ones with the girls giggling!
Oh what fun! I enjoyed my watching my nieces make their 1st Holy Communion. I actually remember my own like it was yesterday, it was such a big deal! Have a wonderful time!
It wouldn't be spring without First Communion. Just like Mary(OBCS) I actual remember my own too. I wore a dotted swiss dress from a little shop called the Belvedere Shop. It was very scratchy!! I have the best pictures of mine as well as my own kids.
Love your candid shots of the cute kiddies. So real and adorable.

Appleton Farms- Farm to Table and more

Friday night I rushed home from work, fed the kitties, changed my clothes and picked up my sister at her house. I couldn't wait to head up to Ipswich, MA and Appleton Farms for their farm to table dinner.  As soon as we pulled into the entrance of the property, all the tensions of the day went away.

The weather was cool, a perfect temperature for outdoor dining, live music and lawn games. What a peaceful setting.

The sign said play & have fun. I did not know how much fun we really would have.

Here's a view from the field. The tables were ready outside and there were more inside the barn.

Fences and stone walls encircled the field and property. Hay bales were set up as seating for listening to the live entertainment for the evening.

The band was named The Austin Torpedoes. They were wonderful. We really enjoyed their performance.

Lemonade was available at a self serve station. You could buy beer or wine from the Ipswich Ale Brewery Truck. Yes, the spiggots were right on …

Embracing the season-my Autumn checklist

It's the most wonderful time of the year! I am speaking of my favorite season Fall. We are in the thick of it now and it is fabulous! It's not quite peak foliage but we are getting there.

Here are my reasons to embrace Fall.

1.  Outdoor dining- Those early Fall days are even better than in Summer. Cooler temps make it more comfortable sitting in the sun and the scene is more colorful. In late Fall, I switch to sitting by fireplaces whenever I can.

2. Old graveyards- I am strangely drawn to old graveyards in the Fall. Maybe it's because most graveyards have fantasticly colorful trees and I just notice them more in Fall. Or perhaps it's the Halloween connection.

We have some very old graveyards in New England and they are definitely worth a visit.
You could even take a historic graveyard or ghost tour. There is a graveyard tour in my hometown in two weeks.

3. An Autumn Walk- What's better than an Autumn walk around your neighborhood?

I love to pick up some colorful …
