The Silk Road Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma // Koussevitzky Music Shed – Tanglewood // Lenox, Massachusetts

For the first time in a VERY long time, my eldest and myself had some much needed Mama/Son time. It was a weekend excursion that I had planned months ago, a trip to Tanglewood in Lenox to see the elusive Yo-Yo Ma and his Silk Road Ensemble. My kiddo has always had an appreciation for the music of Yo-Yo Ma and it was a dream come true (for this mama to make it possible) for him to see and hear him perform.  I had an intuition that he (my kiddo) would take the experience of seeing this live performance, and it would run wild within his being for a long time to come, and perhaps inspire him in ways he won’t realize for some time. What an overwhelming joy to see such a young person watching a listening to the beauty of the music before us all that night. It was a very powerful and deeply moving experience, and having never been to Tanglewood before I was even more grateful to have shared this first experience with my child. Not only was the music magical, but so were the grounds! Here are a few shots from our time in Lenox and at Tanglewood. (notice the sweet i-heart-u note by my boy, as well as the portrait he took of his mama!). I am so very very grateful to be this kiddos Mama!!!

Massachusetts Family Photographer – What Keeps Me Dreaming

The words: gratitude, and devotion, do not even come close to expressing the emotion that my children stir up within me. I’m unable to articulate with words the deep driving force of love that stems from my heart and soul, that in every moment digs ever deeper into my being, this deepest well of love, the never ending passion, the always forging on. It’s the rhythm of motherhood and it always beats, it never stops.

I LOVE my children and I LOVE what I do. Everyday I wake up deeply immersed in the knowing that this life is a gift, and that I am truly blessed.

I don’t often post images of my sweet little people. The truth is, they are what keeps me dreaming and feeling deeply driven to work VERY hard to keep this mother ship growing.

And so, I want to share something with you.

Not that long ago the following images were captured. These images that I share with you were taken by both of my children! Each taking turns photographing “Mama” with one or the other. What follows is a really sweet result, and a little look into the connection that I have with my children.

Engagement Party at The Sheraton Framingham // Kayta & George

Katya & George.

These two have been together for 11 years! Over the course of the night, it was so very clear to me, how true deep love between two kindred souls can last. Katya & George are high school sweethearts (truly), and this night, the night of their engagement party was a REALLY big deal.

The tradition, the family and friends, the energy and the excitement for this beautiful couple was felt in every gorgeous LIVE drum beats and lyrics of the music that night. As their photographer it was hard not to get caught up in the drumming and join in the dance.

Thank you Katya & George, it was truly an honor to have been asked to capture such a special time in your lives!

Mabrook! & Much Love.
