CAPTURING CANDID MOMENTS
My name is Aimee and I am a professional family photographer from Southeast Massachusetts. I love coffee, crafting, and a good long boat ride. I will definitely hug you when we meet and obsess over your tiny humans and dog. I first picked up a camera at 16 years old - my mother told me I could either have a camera or a sweet sixteen birthday bash. I chose the camera.
I split my time between my two passions; photography and education. I have an M.Ed. in education and work as a full time elementary school teacher. I am super lucky to work at a school that allows me to pursue my interests in the creative arts and bring that passion to my students.
LET'S TALK ABOUT KIDS & PHOTOGRAPHY
Asking kids to listen to a string of directions and then promptly follow them is hard! That means, “sit here, fold your hands, don't move, look at the stranger with the camera, and smile” isn’t going to work for very long.
I am a firm believer in play. When photographing kids and families, my priorities are safety and play - in that order. We’ll play games, go on an “adventure”, race each other, and play pretend. I most definitely will make a fool of myself in order to make your babies laugh. The goal is to capture the absolute best photos of your family - real smiles, belly laughs, authentic moments.
Let’s be real, I want to be your family photographer for all the years to come. The kids will know me (who wants a stranger taking their picture, right?) and they’ll know that they won’t be asked to sit still and look pretty.
I’m marrying my high school sweetheart in October 2020!
I’ve been known to sing (badly) instead of speaking my thoughts.
I can’t do a cartwheel and I’m definitely embarrassed by it.
I love plants but I can’t keep them alive so my place is full of fake plants from Ikea.
