Liliana + Naldo | Anniversary Session in Spohr Gardens | Cape Cod, MA

Cape Cod Photographer

Liliana + Naldo reached out in early summer to recreate a photo they had done at Spohr Gardens 5 years ago when they got married. This time, they wanted to include their beautiful 2 1/2 year old daughter, Hannah.

I was so touched by the idea, that I couldn’t wait to meet them. Liliana + Naldo were coming from San Francisco for a short vacation on the Cape. I had never been to Spohr Gardens. Let me just say, this place is like a fairy tale. It’s lush with greens, flowers, and reminded me of a secret garden. Definitely a beautiful place for an intimate wedding. I was so happy to be shooting their anniversary and family session with them there. It was truly special.

The original photo L+N wanted to recreate is by Kimberly Meserve, who is now located in Miami, Florida. Her image is the one the left, and my recreation with little Hannah is on the right… what do you think?! 🙂

15 Years of Togetherness

Dear Andy,

On December 4, 2000, I asked you, my best friend, to be my boyfriend. Cocoa, long walks, thousands of miles of adventure and love have brought us 15 years of the most amazing life I could have ever asked for. Thank you for loving me unconditionally, through the tough times and the best times. I cannot imagine a life without you. You are my greatest treasure.

I love you.

xoxo,
Michele

Elise + Kaleb | Southern California | Oceanside, CA

While on vacation in SoCal, Andy and I got to trade photo sessions with Elise and her husband Kaleb. Elise is a photographer in California- so I reached out to her to see if she would want to do a session for us, and in return, Andy and I would photograph the two of them!

We were staying in Oceanside, just across the street from the beach. Every morning, Andy would wake up and run the length of the pier and along the beach. We absolutely fell in love with it and knew it would be the perfect spot for photos.

I am so excited that we had the chance to meet Elise and Kaleb. They were a real treat to hang with and I just love their love. They recently celebrated their one year anniversary in June!
