my new england portrait.

In early 2009, I stumbled on the blog of a photographer named Kate Headley. She was the only photographer I even considered using for our DC wedding. When she shot our big day in 2010, I knew we were in incredibly capable {and talented} hands. After our wedding, Kate and I never stopped chatting. I'm so lucky to now call her a close friend. When Kate booked a wedding in Connecticut, we plotted a little rendez-vous. We ended up in the quaint town of Stonington, Connecticut, where we spent the perfect late-summer afternoon. Kate kindly snapped some photos along the way...



Over the years, Kate and I have had a few other fun shoots. {You can see those here + here.} I'm not the most comfortable lady in front of the camera, but with Kate behind it, I somehow loosen up. She gets me to belly laugh and "pose" like a pro.



We even wandered over to the boatyard for a few photos by the fishing boats and lobster pots. 
New England at its finest.

Many thanks to Kate Headley for these fun photos--and for setting aside a few hours for me every time she's in New England. You can see a few more photos from this shoot on Kate's blog here

I would ask if you wanted more outfit photos, but it would require me finding another photographer I trust half as much as Kate ;) See you tomorrow for another round of #FridaysFancies! xoxo {av}

  2. Really nice to see a picture of you. Do that more often! Yes we need more outfit photos. But I know how hard it is. Many times my "killer" outfits can't be photographed because I have no photographer
