Sailabrate good times! Newport celebration photographer

It was the middle of summer and a beautiful summer day at that.   My honey and I were on our way to Newport, Rhode Island, so that I could photograph the 10th anniversary sailabration of the RE/MAX River’s Edge office.  Our friends, Michelle Cartwright and Todd Mosher, the broker/owners of the office, hosted what was a fantastic event and they (and their staff, no doubt!) left no stone unturned!

It all began seaside and under the sunny sky with cocktails, chilled shrimp and my personal favorite, oysters on the halfshell.  Yum.    Next, the big and beautiful Aurora came sailing up to the dock, inviting all the partyers aboard for a two hour tour of Newport Harbor.  So much fun, so much beauty.

So wait, there’s more…dining under the tent was a treat, with chicken and lobster and steamers, oh my!  We laughed, we danced, we answered trivia and some won prizes.   Everyone left with a pretty little bottle of prosecco dressed in ribbon and banners.  Such a fantastic little detail that captured the true spirit of the celebration.

It was a great event as evidenced by the smiles…..  here is a collection of my favorite images.

yarmouth, maine family photographer | a special celebration

turning 90 and surrounded by love

I met this woman years ago at a Seadogs baseball game that was also a fundraising event for ALS.   From the first time we said hello, I really really liked her.  You know how that happens … that instant connection and that instant fondness.   I photographed a family wedding for her not too long after we met, and as the years went by, every now and again we’d touch base.  This last time we communicated it was about photographing her and her extended family in celebration of her  sweet mother’s 90th birthday.  90!!  How wonderful is that???  The party would be held on the fourth of July in her mom’s backyard.

It was a delight to spend an hour with these folks and be a part of a very special birthday for a very lovely lady.

The advantage of being 90 is that there are a lot of people to love.
