JORDAN STROBECK & BEAUTYCOUNTER


Jordan Strobeck lives in Charlestown with her husband, Geoff, and their handsome baby boy, Ford. When she isn't busy being an amazing wife and mother, she's using her infectious positivity to lead a team of 100 women with Beautycounter.  Beautycounter is a safe and high performing skincare and cosmetics line. I love Beautycounter's motto of "Safer Skincare - Clean Beauty" and its products. (Check out my favorite product here: The Vitamin C Brightening Face Oil)

I have known Jordan for over 10 years through our mothers who are dear friends (Hi Mom and Lynne!). I was so excited to take Jordan's lifestyle pictures for her online business. I had such a fun morning with her and baby Ford! 

I love working with other inspiring women, especially entrepreneurs! I hope you enjoy these photos (and the people in them) as much as I do! 

If you're interested in connecting with Jordan, she'd love to hear from you! You can reach her at jordan.strobeck@gmail.com. 


A DAY IN MAINE


... 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... 


AT HOME WITH THE MATRONIS


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!!


HICKS FAMILY


Brandy and Joe have two adorable boys, Paul and JB. They are such a FUN and sweet family! We spent our time together at Roger Williams Park, a place where they love to spend time together as family.

Paul and JB are so adorable and they kept all of us laughing the whole way through with songs and silly words. The boys' favorite stuffed animals, Luck and Ducky, even came along for the ride. You can really feel the love, realness, and positivity between this family! 

I didn't think the morning could get any better until they stepped out in their superhero t-shirts! I don't know who wore the batman mask better...


CLAIRE PARRISH POTTERY


Claire has always loved to create. Ever since she was physically able to, she was creating. From doodling as a toddler, to mastering her ceramic craft at the University of Georgia, she never doubted that she wanted to be an Artist 'when she grew up'. 

In 2015, she moved to Richmond, Virginia with her husband (hi Drew!) and started Claire Parrish Pottery. I also was living in Richmond and, thanks to our husbands working together, we became fast friends. I have loved the days that I have spent with Claire inside and outside of her studio talking about business, art, and life.

Claire's pottery is as beautiful, pure, and grounded as she is. It's been so fun to watch her grow and succeed as an artist and I love every chance I get to collaborate with her. This summer, we spent an afternoon together in her studio and I had the pleasure of documenting a little peak into the makings of her work.

CANDACE DALTON


Candace is one of those people who cannot help but be herself. I met her when we were just little kids and even back then she was who she is today:  a kind and fiercely strong friend that dedicates her life to helping others.

Today, she works with people to help them find health and peace with their mind, body and soul connection. She is a spirit medium, fitness instructor, reiki student, and an all around incredible spirit to be with. I highly recommend checking out the first installment of her most recent (must see!!) project: a video series on grief. 

As Candace launches this new video project and looks to find new ways to accomplish her life's mission, we worked together on some updated lifestyle headshots that she can use for her work. We had so much fun blasting music and dancing around her living room while making some pictures that represent her personality. I may be bias but I just LOVE them!
