By just looking at these pictures, you can tell that Emma is settling into her new home very well and is loving every minute of life with her mom and dad. Just check out her little smirk in the 2nd to last photo! Too. Cute.

Jessica and Brett welcomed Emma Reese to the world on June 20, 2018. I had the honor of photographing Emma in the hospital just a day after being born. It was beautiful to see Jessica and Brett  with their new little girl, so I was so excited to visit them in the South End to take photos of Emma in her new home.

Lots of love to Jessica and Brett for letting me join in on these special moments. It's been so fun to watch Emma grow and begin her life!




Welcome to the world, Emma Reese!

Emma was born on June 20, 2018 and is just as sweet as can be! In these photos, Emma was only 2 days old but wide awake - I think she didn't want to miss a moment of looking at her mom or cuddling with her dad! I love how Jessica and Brett decided not to find out the gender of their baby. It made it all that more exciting to learn that a beautiful baby GIRL was born.

We will be doing a newborn session at their home to take more pictures, but enjoy these first glimpses into Emma's life. Congratulations to Jessica and Brett on your beautiful and healthy little girl!



Little Evie made her introduction to the world in March and she is already stealing hearts everywhere she goes, including mine! She loves nothing more than to smile at her mom, Regan and her dad, Chris. Evie is loved by so many. Her outfits for this session and nursery decor were sweet gifts from family and friends! Even this session was a gift from her Auntie Colleen!

It was such a fun morning. So much fun, that Evie fell asleep on the floor at the end of the session mid-outfit change (see the last photo). Too. Cute.

Much love to you all!


Liz and Jeff just welcomed their beautiful baby boy to the world, little Jeffrey Dennis Fragala Jr. He is named after his daddy and he will be called JJ. Isn't that such a cute baby name??

I grew up with Liz in my hometown and it was so much fun to have an excuse to reunite for a day with her, her sister Kelly, and the whole Brabants family! It is already hard to remember Liz before motherhood because she, Jeff, and JJ seem like they were always meant to be. Take one look at their family pictures and you will know what I mean.

On the day of the session, Liz's parents, Donnie and Neiva, hosted many loving friends and family at their home to see JJ. JJ had us all laughing because, as you can see in the photos, it almost seemed like he started to model for us! He is such a sweet baby and did nothing but smile at all of his favorite people.

JJ... you are one LOVED little boy!


... and what a day it was!

Ever since she photographed my own wedding in 2016, I have been obsessed with Emilie of Emilie Inc. Not only is she an incredibly accomplished and talented photographer; she's a kind, inspiring, and all around cool person to get to be around. (You heard me, Emilie... you're the coolest!!). Needless to say, I was THRILLED when I got to spend a full day with her as my mentor this past summer. 

I drove up to her charming, seaside town that sits outside of Portland, ME and we set off on our adventure of a day. 

The best part was meeting the Poulin family and spending time with little Baxter and Atticus. The Poulin family just welcomed their sweet little baby Atticus. Emilie and I visited their beautiful and classic New England home to document family life with these two new brothers. Atticus is the most laid-back baby and his big brother, Baxter, loves him so much!

Here are some shots from our time with Baxter and Atticus... 


You only see the first photo in this gallery and you already know that Charlotte came into this world knowing how to strike a pose. For those that know her mom, Ariel... that isn't a surprise!

Charlotte surprised us all by arriving early and has had everyone wrapped around her fingers ever since. It's been so fun to watch her grow since that 2nd day of life. With this new family of three, their two pups, and Charlotte's many expressions... there's so much to love in these photos. 

Lots of love to you, Matronis!!
