Dos Studios: Blog en-us (C) Dos Studios (Dos Studios) Thu, 15 Dec 2016 02:05:00 GMT Thu, 15 Dec 2016 02:05:00 GMT Dos Studios: Blog 80 120 it's the most wonderful time of the year December is a month that I slow down photography to focus on my family and really enjoy the holiday season, volunteer at both of my kid's schools, and celebrate my son's birthday (I'm sure we will have some birthday pictures taken later this week). It doesn't mean that I put my camera away but I am more deliberate in what and when I shoot.  This shot was on my 2016 personal photography bucket list (Inspired by Sholanda at Chubby Cheek Photography in TX) and I'm just in love with it.  Making some magic this year.

a session so close to my heart Sometimes you have one of those incredibly special sessions.  The ones that just aren't for the annual photo but the ones that hold an even more special meaning to them.  My sweet friend Kristen asked for one of these incredibly special sessions and this one hits all of the "feels".  Not only was this session so close to my heart but all the stars aligned - the light was perfect, the location was perfect, these kiddos are the sweetest... I couldn't have asked for more.

I was honored that she trusted me to take these pictures for her, to help tell her story and honor all of her children.  She also trusted me enough to let me pick the most random off the side of the road location during golden hour (the time of day which is most magical).

Thank you Kristen.  Thank you for being a beautiful, kind and thoughtful momma and friend.

chicken shoot love that I can call this momma and say "what do you think about this?" and she helps make it happen! Doesn't hurt that Mr. Torrey is one of my BEST models! :)

Next year plan on seeing a lot more stylized shoots - they are already being dreamt up!

a sweet backyard session This beautiful family belongs to one of my oldest friends Jess.  When I say oldest I don't mean it in the literal way but in the way that I have known her since I was 3 years old.  You see, we grown up 2 houses away from another and both of our parents still live in those houses.  Jess has since moved away but she was home for her brothers wedding so we decided to get some updated family pictures. 

I don't know how she does it, but she makes mommin' 4 kids look easy peasy! (I have trouble mommin' 2!)  All of these were taken in her childhood backyard.  I always tell people we can make beautiful pictures anywhere including their backyards so I was so excited that this is where we stayed! Next time I'm coming to visit you Jess and we will take some beach pictures on Cape Cod! :)

A fall family session in CT! We had so many great days this fall!  I was lucky enough to head down to CT to photograph some of my favorite families there too one weekend!  I love the S family.  Mr. S and I worked together for many years and Mrs. S and I were pregnant at the same time for both of our kids so you can imagine all the stories that we have been able to share (plus we are both Portuguese families!).  It was so fun being able to catch up with them and see how much Cameron and Abby have grown up!

a sampeling of fall minis Fall minis are usually the start of holiday cards... so you are only getting a tiny sampling of what went down this fall as some are still a secret for holiday cards and gifts :)

this year we lucked out with an awesome day at Forest Park

Wall art I was inspired by a pin on pinterest I saw and knew something similar had to hang in Mallory's room.  If you know Mallory, you know that this fits her personality perfectly!  It is sized 12x12 and if you want to order one head on over here to have it printed for yourself!

Chicopee Comp Senior session eeekkk I love getting to take senior pictures - check out this beauty!  Sloan and I had so much fun at her session which was at Mt. Holyoke College in South Hadley.  The campus is beautiful and it was a perfect night to walk around and have a session! Here are just some of my favorites.  She's going to have a hard time choosing which to put in the yearbook!

little lady Check out the stunning S family! Pam is another momma that I have known forever!  It is so much fun taking pictures of friends and their families that I have grown up playing with in my neighborhood! Pam drove all the way from Boston to have me photograph her family and I'm so glad she did.  It was so great getting to meet the Mr. and her little lady Julia.

Pam - you have an absolutely stunning family xoxo.

sweet baby girl I was so excited to photograph sweet Riley.  I have known her momma for a long time now and seeing my beautiful friend turn into this amazing momma was just so exciting to me.  Erica & Billy, enjoy your sweet girl.  I can't wait until the next time I get to snuggle her again
