Photos are so revealing. Both Gavin and baby Tyler were irresistible to watch and so fabulous to photograph. They both had this glow of happiness and love in their eyes. And then I meet their parents and grandparents and yes… the apple does not fall far from the tree. What a lovely family you are. Thanks for allowing me to capture you in all your beauty and playfulness.
Defining Gravity was presented by modern dance company, She-figured Dance, as a benefit to support The Somarela Fund www.somarela.com. The fundraiser helped Somarela in their efforts to support (educate, clothe, vaccinate, teach, feed, and care) for HIV infected orphans in Botswana. (The site gives lots of information if you are looking for more.) The dancers involved were Claire Baione, Julie Caranddo, Jennifer Guercio, Jil Matrisciano, Quinn Morton, Daryl Owens, and Maggie Sarmiento.
All the way from Alberta, this tight knit Canadian family traveled across the boarder to Martha’s Vineyard to connect and unwind. I was very impressed with Danielle’s coordinating ability to get 1 infant, 3 toddlers, 8 kids and 8 adults cleaned up and in visually integrated colors all by 9:30 a.m to Edgartown from Katama. These Northerners were fabulous and I appreciated their athletic ability in helping my assistant Alex with getting the sun out of each others eyes. – Thanks guys!

Ceremony: Old Whaling Church
Martha’s Vineyard has long been a popular retreat for artists, and this June two young film-makers came to the island to get married. Jasmine and Damien fell in love while making the indie musical Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench, which became a runaway success, meeting rave reviews and screening at many independent film festivals, including the island’s own Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival.
Jasmine and Damien tied the knot at a gorgeous weekend ceremony in Edgartown at the Old Whaling Church. Rebecca Miller of North Tabor Farm in Chilmark supplied the flowers, a romantic late spring mix of lisianthus and lavender. Pictures of the happy couple are featured in the current issue of Martha’s Vineyard Weddings.
