Summer is the most popular time of the year for travelers to enjoy the sun, surf and food of Cape Cod, but I prefer the Fall. I no longer have to fight traffic, wait in long lines at restaurants or struggle to finding a spot for my chair on the beach. If you want to enjoy the cute shops, great food and walks on the beach, the fall season is for you too. I traveled to Chatham, Cape Cod, which still has the majority of their shops and restaurant opens during this time. My favorite beaches transform into a private oasis with an occasional dog walker going by. The weather can vary, but if planned well you can still enjoy a day in the 60’s, which is perfect to me.
Chatham is located at the “elbow” of the Cape Cod. If looking at any map you can see that the land actually depicts an arm and the “elbow” is exactly where Chatham falls. It was settled by the English in 1664 and became a community of fishing, whaling and shipping. Since the town is at such a critical point of navigation by sea the Chatham Lighthouse was established in 1808 by President Thomas Jefferson. You can also visit the Chatham Light and enjoy the beach that has endured many storms in its day. The historical feel of the town still exists in the architecture today. It is this historic charm that keeps me visiting several times a year and makes me appreciate its beauty all year round.

On July 1st, Holl and Lane Magazine will launch the 8th issue and I’m so excited that one of my images was chosen for the cover. The image choose was captured many months ago and I wanted to share some of the behind the scenes images of capturing the cover shot. It was around 30 degrees and my model, Eden, did such a great job managing outfit changes and direction.
I first started working with brands back in 2010 during my photography school days, and the ability to highlight a product in the studio or in a lifestyle image has always stuck with me. Reebok was one of my major clients and capturing lifestyle images of their products in-action was an amazing experience. (Reebok Work) It was that experience that shaped the way I shoot children and baby lifestyle photography today. Last week I photographed some of my toddler’s past and present toys, clothes and accessories to demonstrate my product photography, so naturally this week I wanted to highlight my lifestyle work. Check out more of my product and lifestyle photography on my website here: NBP Commercial I’m always available to discuss your photography needs for your next product launch, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s no surprise that products created for children and babies are so darn cute. Over the past three years as a mom and taking numerous families portraits, these products are always a fun detail to add to an image. I have shared so many photos of my lifestyle work that this week I wanted to share some product photography. As a disclaimer, I photographed these images for personal use and was not contracted by these companies. These toys and shoes were/are some of my toddlers favorites, so why not memorialize them.
