Event: Heineken Party

I was lucky enough to get an invite to shoot the Heineken party at the Liberty Hotel in Boston last week and it was an absolute blast. Free beer, free music, and endless entertainment via people watching. Everyone was having a great time jamming on the dance floor and tossing back brewskis, it almost didn’t even feel like I was working!

The Heineken girls looking lovely! These ladies were troopers – on their feet all night in high heels chatting and interacting with guests.

I loved the ambience in the room as they were setting up. Eerie but beautiful at the same time. Green can sometimes be tough to pull off but Heineken does it well.

Of course I had to get some shots of the product. Heineken did everything in its power to make the evening fun, loud, and energetic – and they absolutely met their goal. Thanks for the invite guys!hein 5 hein 4

My favorite shot of the night – a perfect example of how energetic and happy the dance floor was.

Portraits: Victoria

You may recognize Victoria from her “family” shoot a few months back. I was thrilled when she asked to get some professional headshots done. She is incredibly easygoing in front of a camera and makes my job that much easier. Look how sassy and powerful she looks!

She’s already put these to good use on her Facebook and social media profiles. I’m glad she’s enjoying the shots – it’s always reassuring seeing your work being used by those involved. Thanks Victoria for another fun experience!victoria 2Check out more of our headshots: Samantha’s Senior Portrait and our Pop-Up Studio Debut.

 

Family Portraits: Bizier Family

 

I always love getting the chance to take family shots. It’s always a pleasure meeting a happy, smiling baby. Mason Bizier was no different! He was such a cool customer. His dad, Mike, was well prepared for the shoot, with fantastic props. Check out this nameplate – it’s twice the size of Mason!bizier 3

 

I LOVE this shot – makes me snicker every time. A baby in sunglasses is always funny (in a cute way) in my book.bizier 2

And one last shot of Mason fitting right in with his favorite toys, who just so happen to be his same size. Thanks Mason and Mike for a fun afternoon!

Event: Tough Mudder

I was lucky enough to know a few people that were attending the Tough Mudder at Gunstock Mountain in Gilford, NH. According to the website, Tough Mudder is a “hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle course designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie” as well as “the premiere obstacle course series in the world.” Even though I didn’t participate, I would say that is the most accurate description I could come up with. I was nervous and out of breath half the time just watching people participate.

My favorite obstacles involved extreme teamwork – carrying, pulling, throwing, fire – yep, FIRE. There were a few obstacles that I was unsure were legal for civilian use but turned out to be the most rewarding challenges for those involved. Look at these happy faces!mudder 4 mudder 3

At the end of the day, I’m positive that everyone who attended was glad they did it. In my opinion, it’s one of the most rewarding things to test how far you can push your body and see the results of a job well done. Congratulations to everyone who participated!mudder 2We are available for event photography and are happy to set up a pricing plan for you.
