2009 Newton North Senior Portrait Sessions - Book Online!
Want your senior portrait to look amazing?
Blemishes? Not a problem! I re-touch all portraits free of charge. My sessions take place outside in the park at Newton City Hall. Sessions are super laid back, quick and easy. The following afternoon your photos will appear on this website in a password protected album. Once you've chosen your favorite picture I will hand deliver it to the Newtonian by their October deadline.

An Afternoon with Christopher and Katie
I would like to introduce you to two of the cutest kids that I have ever photographed (who aren't directly related to me!) Meet Christopher and Katie, 2 and 5 respectively. We spent the afternoon goofing around in their backyard and then at the local park.

This is Chris - I love his flip up hair style!
And Katie - Isn't she an angel here?
Smelling the wild flowers.
He is such a happy kid!
I love this one of Katie running towards me - exactly 5 seconds before she tackled me to the ground!
I was on the other side of the teeter totter thing - about to fall off with my camera in hand!
That's all - just a few favorites :)

Boston A Year in the life - A book party for Bill Brett
If you are from Boston, I probably don't need to tell you who Bill Brett is. With a 40 year career as a photographer at the Boston Globe, Brett has become a legend in this tight-knit city. His photographic chronicle of Boston and it's most influential citizens is like no other. Bill Brett has literally seen it all. Last night I attended a party in honor of his new book, Boston A Year in the Life.
Developer Joseph Fallon hosted the party at Fan Pier on the South Boston Waterfront.
A line of admirers and friends waited as Brett signed every last book. The line extended outside the tent for over three hours.

Carol Beggy (center) is a former colleague of Brett's at the Globe. Beggy wrote the text to the book.
Brett's daughter and accomplished photographer Kerry Brett.
It was a beautiful evening on the waterfront.
Bob Lobel and Mary Richardson.
While the Drop Kick Murphy's played inside the tent, a fireboat graced the Waterfront in honor of Brett.
It was quite nice!
Sally and Terry Kelly of Norwell.
I didn't come to the party to work but people kept posing for me! Perhaps they thought I was filling in for party lines.
The photo to the right is of Brett at the Boston Marathon finish line, camera in hand!

Boston A Year in the Life took place between the 2007 and 2008 Boston Marathons. One picture, every day in between.
Brett delivered a touching speech about his love for Boston.
Bill Brett and friend Kai Leigh Harriott.
There were signed prints of Brett's photographs being auctioned off the end of the night to benefit Camp Harbor View.

Unfortunately, I was outbid for this photo, taken on July 4th, 2007 of a Sailor saluting the flag. I STILL WANT ONE!
Luckily I was able to win the bid for my second favorite print, the sunset over Boylston St, taken on November 2nd, 2007.

Many thanks to Mark Garfinkel for taking this photo of Bill & I.
Ever since I first picked up a camera I have always marveled over the work of a Globe photographer named "Bill Brett". Before I even knew his story I made up my mind that this guy had the coolest job in the world. Thanks for being such an inspiration Bill!

Mikey's Boston Magazine Shoot with angela coppola
A couple months ago Boston Magazine had a photoshoot of the Red Sox kids at Fenway Park with photographer Angela Coppola. These behind-the-scenes photos were not allowed online until the spread ran in their August Best of Boston issue.

I love this shot of Mikey - he looks like a model for J.Crew toddler.
Mikey spent his pre-shoot down time running around the ballpark as usual.
Me & Mikey.
Enza & Mikey.
The wardrobe for these 12 kids was out of this world - racks and racks of brand new designer clothing!
Movie star treatment.
Check out the kicks!
Making his way to the bright lights.
Mikey walked the green grass wearing a Kingsley Pirate hoodie; Neige Liberty button-down and Lester Harry's Penguin Jeans.
Mikey's shot also included Peyton Magadan and Trevor Wakefield.
Proud parents and photography genious Angela Coppola.

The shot was perfectly choreographed and I think the kids looked so great together! This was a shot I snapped while watching.
Coppola's final photos appeared in Boston Magazine's August issue shown here pages 57-59. Click Here to see more photos.

I had a lot of fun tagging along to this shoot. Coppola's photos came out phenomenal and I found them to be very inspiring!
After the shoot, Kevin took Mikey down to the clubhouse to hang out.
Just enough time for a quick lesson!
