I’m fresh off the second-annual Inspire Boston mini-conference, a wonderful retreat-style event for photographers. It was a great few days, meeting new friends, new vendors, and hearing various perspectives on current industry topics. The event also provides an opportunity to do a shooting workshop and mentor sessions with fellow photographers. Below are some photos from my shoot with Raw Photo Design team Eric and Amber Langlois!

Definitely a bit more dramatic of a look than you’re used to seeing on my site, but I’ve actually been planning to take a model/volunteer out with me soon so I can show you some of these options. I have so much fun playing with light! It can be dramatic or natural – the above photos were actually all taken at the same time of day, with a very bright and overcast 4pm sky!

Again, I typically show a more natural look from my weddings and portraits, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not sometimes relying on additional lighting to create the scene – even outdoors. It’s important for me to know my equipment for use in any situation, particularly in the constant movement of a wedding day.

Thanks to Eric, Amber and our gorgeous model Lisa for bringing a bit of the playground to me (us) for an afternoon!

I was off on an editorial shoot in Harwich today, visiting artist Jennifer Morgan in her incredible self-built home and studio. Here’s a little peek of the yummy goodness my camera feasted on!

I love to paint myself, and I was in awe of the eco-conscious home design. I swear I get the best editorial assignments ever for my personality, and I meet some incredible Cape Codders along the way!

You’ll find many more photos, and learn about Jennifer and her home in the upcoming “cottage issue” of Cape Cod Home magazine!

A happy Monday morning to you all! We’re getting some chunky flakes here and I love it!

I’ve spent the last two weekends in rustic New England cabins… no running water, and just cozy firewood to keep us warm. Lots of exploring on nordic skis and snowshoes.

For me it has always been a favorite time of year to get out there, enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, and remember why winter isn’t the evil season everyone makes it out to be. Thanks to the friends and dogs who love to join us!

    Meghan Simone - I LOVE WINTER :) We had so much fun! Thanks Stacey for posting such a great memory. My new favorite photos!

As you may know, I’ve been doing editorial photography for Cape Cod Life Publications (that’s Cape Cod Life, and Cape Cod Home) for over a year now. I hardly have time to share these photos during the crazy summer months, but this story meant a lot to me in particular.

Not only did I photograph Green Briar Jam Kitchen in Sandwich, MA, but I also had the opportunity to write the full story for Cape Cod Home last August. My grandmother began working at the jam kitchen in the 1940s, and I spent entire days exploring and stirring the pots alongside her. The grounds are also an incredible nature center where the first Peter Rabbit stories were created, and my brother chose this site for his wedding. So it was truly wonderful to go back and chat with the staff about the old days, and smile that everything still looks very much the same!

All jams, jellies and preserves are still cooked by hand and by season. The jarring is also done on-site with the same tools Green Briar has used for over 100 years. Visit the gift shop to buy a few, or come in for a class to learn the skills yourself!

Check the Green Briar site for upcoming festivals and classes in the kitchen, or for their packed schedule of exciting Animal Room and nature education treks for your kids!

    Brittani - Such a neat story, and it’s so cool you have a personal tie to it. I love all of the blue and the fun vintage glass jars…so cool.
