on the road and on location in Massachusetts

Memorial Day weekend saw me on the road to Massachusetts for some special sessions. I grew up in Scituate, MA, in a lovely seaside town with a harbor and a lighthouse that was just right down the street from my house. I had a wonderful time meeting several old friends from high school and meeting their daughters...having a gorgeous photo session in the golden afternoon light... as well as meeting some new friends at Balmy Acres Stable in Middleboro for an all-day session with families, adults, kids, horses, dogs, a bull and even a pet turkey! We were all brought together again through Facebook in a cool way...

What I most remember about Ellen back in high school was that she was always laughing! And that hadn't changed one bit

 And..we have another thing in common as she has also adopted two girls from China!
Tess and Claire are a "virtual twins" at age 7...but adopted some 4 years apart.

Carly and I hiked way out to the end of the jetty for these shots....I couldn't remember actually doing this 30 years ago let alone climbing over the rocks wearing Birkenstocks and carrying a large camera bag! The photos were totally worth it...

I love this candid moment between Carly and her mom, Beth

I had such a blast shooting at Balmy Acres Stable on Saturday...what a beautiful farm! Gorgeous deep green ferns in the forest and tall meadow grass with wildflowers...made for amazing settings for the horses (and dogs, and turkey!)

 This is Angela, the owner, and her family...with their pet turkey who just had to get into the shot!

 Karen and her family, with Spyder, the horse who could even bow on command
 One of my favorite shots of the day..Miss Grey...
Maria has two horses as well as these three dogs!

 Alyson and her blue-eyed mare Cameo

Rita and can just feel the bond between them here, can't you?

 Sheila and Reba

and mighty dog, Max. I love this photo--he is definitely smiling for the camera!
