Meet Baby Evie!

I'm so happy for my friends A + J who recently had a beautiful baby girl, Evie. I loved capturing this gorgeous little baby girl with a full head of hair and the rosiest cheeks.

A + J are one of my favorite couples to photograph, as we're always in tears laughing!  Here are a few teasers of darling Evie being fed, burped and kissed so that she falls asleep sweetly in the arms of her loving parents...

Allow me to introduce you to the lovely, warm, fun-loving, cheerful and beautiful Lewis Family, who I had the honor of photographing in Cohasset this past weekend.

I met Suzanne, one third of the Just Us Gals, at this event and was excited to meet her mom, sister and boyfriend as well as the latest edition to the family: French bulldog puppy Pierre, who is just the cutest lil' guy!

Photographed at the end of summer while the grass was still green, the water still sparkling, and the shade of the trees telling stories that would make Autumn jealous....

Sounding like something out of Harry Potter, with the 2 1/2 Park Sq address, L.J Peretti's is a new discovery, for me, but an institution in Boston, having been in the city for over 140 years and has seen the likes of Bing Crosby, Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau.

Alan and Ginnie, who I introduced to you before in Amsterdam, were visiting with us in Boston last week, and Ginnie stumbled upon L.J Peretti's on one of her walks and wanted to take Alan (a pipe smoker and tobacco connoisseur) there.

Naturally, I wouldn't miss seeing a new (to me) place in Boston. I felt like I was in a Diagon Alley world!

Where the tabacco gives an earthy-ness to the air and the lingering puffs of smoke hover lazily above. Where a smartly dressed man smokes a cigar in the afternoon, sitting on a leather chair that is both sturdy and familiar. Where tins of tobacco and hand-made briar pipes line the walls and cigar boxes blanket every last inch of the counter.

The star of the show, though, are the brass scales. As classic as you can get! 

I'm not a smoker, but after stepping into this historic society, I wanted to be a part of its world...and of course, anything with a "Co." in its name is a friend of mine!

When in Delhi, it is only fitting to visit Rajghat, the memorial site of Mahatma Gandhi.

The black marble slab marks the cremation site, while an eternal flame burns in a glass box and the words "Hai Ram" (Oh God) in Hindi are inscribed on the front. Words which are thought to have been Gandhi's last.

For both young and old, tourists and locals, it is a popular site of meditation, worship and respect.
