Wedding Venue

I have been hired to photograph the wedding of Denise and Jim on Wednesday, August 3 which will be taking place at Stage Neck Inn, York Maine.  I took a drive to scope out the location and took some "sneak peak" photos of the area.

Barrington Rhode Island

I had a wonderful and fun family photo shoot in Barrington Rhode Island this morning.
It consisted of Pauline and Gene, with their blended family of 8 adult children and 14 grandchildren. 
A total of 30 people all together. Everyone was so wonderful and welcoming.
 I think I am now part of this huge family.  Here are a few fun photos that I took along their waterfront property before the official shoot began, And one of the entire clan!!

2011 Reid's Ride

This is the third year that I have volunteered my photography services to the Reid Sacco Foundation by being the photographer at the finish line at the 7th Annual Reid's Ride.

 Reid's Ride 28-mile Bike-a-thon is a fun and rewarding way to support clinical and scientific research into finding more and better treatments -- and someday a cure -- for the cancers that predominantly strike Adolescents and Young Adults.   Cyclists of all ages and abilities pedal their way from Lynnfield to Cape Ann in what is the primary fund-raising event for the Reid Sacco Memorial Foundation.

Reid Sacco passed away in April 2005, at the age of 20, after a two-year battle with sarcoma.  In his short life, he inspired and touched an incredible number of people with his courage, perseverance, ambition, hope, humor, intelligence, humility, generosity, and kindness.

Driven by his inspiration, Reid's family is carrying this dream forward to give to others, in the form a non-profit charitable foundation that will support scholarship and research.   The foundation has been set up  in Reid's honor, to make sure that other young adults like Reid will never need to abandon their dreams of college and a long, healthy life ahead.   The Foundation supports research programs that aspire to conquer cancers like the one that took Reid's life.
