Prospect Hill Park Engagement Photos | Monica & Paul

Today, I’m excited to share a sneak peek from Monica and Paul’s laughter-filled Prospect Park engagement photos from this past weekend. Read more about their story and enjoy a few favorites from their engagement session.

Because their engagement session began with their adorable Frenchie, Bruce, I have to start with him first.

They were surprised that Bruce was on his best behavior and had photos taken with ease.

I always have at least one attention-getting trick up my sleeve whenever we had pups to the mix, and I’m not sure if it was my trick or if Bruce came to the session that day pose ready.

Oh my goodness! Just wait until you see his adorable tuxedo and bowtie.

Everyone who knows Monica and Paul, know that Bruce is an important part of their lives, and it was only fitting that he have a photo on their save-the-dates.

I mentioned that their session was laughter-filled, and it was just that, from start to finish.

When we met a few weeks ago at the studio, I knew that they were hands down a fun couple as they shared many, many moments of laughter together.

They can’t pinpoint exactly when they first met. Monica knew Paul as just the older brother of one of her friends that she’s known since she was little.

While attending the 25th birthday party of a friend, Paul was there, and he thought Monica was cute. He convinced that friend to have another party and to invite that cute girl, Monica.

They have been inseparable since they started dating, and in 2017, just before she started Graduate School, Paul proposed to Monica and she said yes!

This past weekend was cold, but they had smiles on their faces the entire time for their Prospect Hill park engagement photos.

They danced and laughed, came up with a secret hand-shake and laughed, and they nailed a fun pose several times and laughed. I can not wait to see if that fun pose lands on their save-the-dates.

Monica and Paul, you two have the best sense of humor, and are an absolute joy together! I look forward to photographing all of the fun and beautiful moments on your wedding day in October!

Snowy Boston Public Gardens Engagement Session | Alyssa & Dave

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of spending a snowy afternoon with Alyssa and Dave for their snowy Boston Public Gardens engagement session. You’d never know that it was freezing out because their warm smiles never left their faces. I’m so excited to share a few favorites from their session and more about their story.

Alyssa and Dave met two years ago for dinner at what has now become their favorite restaurant hands-down.

That dinner date lasted five and a half hours with never an awkward silence between them. They both left knowing that they were meant to be.

Alyssa said she told her mom, yup, I’m marrying him!

I think we can call that love at first sight, but for them, it would have been married at first sight, but they didn’t want to scare their families.

When I asked them how did they both leave their first date knowing that they’d found the one, Dave described it has inexplicable and that is what makes their love story even more special!

Their snowy Boston Public Gardens Engagement session photos will forever be special because they also chose the location where Dave proposed and Alyssa said yes!

On the afternoon of their engagement session, ice skaters and hockey players enjoyed the frozen pond, visitors shuffled in and out throughout the gardens, snow flurries fell and they had
the best smiles on their faces the entire time.

We ended their engagement session just before a mix of rain and snow began to fall amongst the beautiful lights that line Commonwealth Ave. with leading lines that made for a great composition. I think that photo might be the favorite for their Save-the-Dates.

Alyssa and Dave, I had the best time with you two and I can’t wait to celebrate with you in August-YAY! The weather will be a bit different, but I know those warm smiles on your faces will be present all day! I’m so happy for you two!! xo, Shawon

Here are a few favorites from their snowy Boston Public Gardens engagement photos!

Black Rock Country Club Wedding | Kelli + Jeff

Happy New Year! We are three days into the new year, and I am elated as I had the honor of ringing in the new year in a most memorable way at Kelli and Jeff’s Black Rock Country Club wedding! Their day was overflowing with love, joy, and beautiful anticipation as they celebrated their special day with their family and friends. Enjoy more about their story, their wedding and a few favorites from their day!

It was amazing to witness the love that Kelli and Jeff have for each other. Every part of the day held heartwarming anticipation.

They’ve known ever since their first date over two years ago that they had found the one, their friends and family knew when they saw them together that they had found the one, and on Monday, as they stood to say their vows the smiles on everyone’s face and the loved that filled the ceremony was an essence of great happiness for Kelli and Jeff because indeed they had found the one.

To know them is to love them and that sentiment was echoed throughout the day.

The start of their Black Rock Country Club wedding day…

We started their day with the wedding party getting ready at a Quincy hotel and spending time with Kelli and her bridesmaids and the two beaming moms first. After giving big hello hugs and saying hi to everyone, I started, as always, with the details and all of the something specials. One of Kelli’s something specials was a beautiful gold brooch that belonged to her Nanie in memory of her that adorned her bouquet. Love!!!

Their day was especially thoughtful, caring, kind, and fun which are only a few words to describe both Kelli and Jeff.

Morning preparations with the ladies were filled with navy PJs, pom-pom slippers, mimosa toasts, exhilarating laughter, a photo teaser sent to Jeff (great idea from Kelli’s mom), opening gifts and soon getting the gorgeous bride into her gown for a special first look with her dad. Love!!!

Before getting Kelli into her gown, I went to see Jeff and his party for a few getting ready photos and to capture him opening his gift from his lovely bride. He was especially calm on the outside, but he expressed that he couldn’t wait to see Kelli. Reading her words made him smile the widest smile, and made the anticipation of seeing her even greater.

We traveled to Black Rock Country Club for their first look, wedding party photos, and family photos with their parents.

Jeff’s anticipation to see Kelli had been building all morning and soon it would be time for their first look. The smile on his face was the best. He could not wait to see her. She had a special surprise for him. He knew that she wasn’t wearing a veil, but what he did not know was that she’d be wearing a beautiful lace cape to add to her stunning gown that everyone agreed was perfect for her.

The moment had come, and their first look was so beautiful!! The anticipation, the way in which they looked at each other, their smiles, and the numerous times Jeff walked circles around his lovely bride to take in all of her beauty was indelible.

Clouds filled the sky, but these two brought all of the sunshine to their day!!

Their evening ceremony was held at St. Agatha’s Church in Milton, MA. Kelli’s childhood priest, who’s known her since she was four, officiated their ceremony. His reaction to seeing Kelli at the altar was priceless. Before he began, he told her that she was absolutely beautiful.

Everyone was so happy for them, and the joy as they walked back down the aisle to celebrate their marriage was adoring.

The day could not have been more perfect for their New Year’s Eve wedding, and I’m sure that it will be remembered as an amazing celebration for everyone that was there.

Kelli and Jeff, it was an absolute joy to be with you on your wedding day! I have loved getting to know you over this past year, and I will be cheering for you always! Sending big hugs your way and I hope that you have the BEST honeymoon in Thailand! xo, Shawon

Here are a few favorites from their Black Rock Country Club wedding day!

A Luxury Portrait Experience | Shawon Davis Portraits | Medway, MA

New things are brewing at the studio as the New Year is only a few days away. One of those new things is a Luxury Portrait Experience! Read more…

A story that I began writing in 2012 is ready to be shared and told.

I believe each woman is distinctive and powerful in her own skin. I believe that she sews a story into existence with her actions and words. It is a resilient tapestry, threaded with strength. It is a collection of the battles she has fought and the love stories she has written with the world around her. Every day, whether she feels it or not, she is sewing a story that deserves to be remembered and celebrated.

Without evening knowing you, I know you deserve to feel beautiful in your own skin. You deserve a day to be pampered and treasured.

In the craziness of life, I know we forget that sometimes. We lose sight of the person in the mirror and we forget to delight, or even value, that person. I created these sessions so you and I could take a big step back and remember the person in the mirror. That person matters and I hope you never forget it.

This Luxury Portrait Experience is a day for YOU!

Your shoot is customized from start to finish! That includes a personal consultation with help designing your wardrobe, professional hair and makeup right here at the studio, and a fully guided photoshoot that will flatter you in every way.

It is such a fun experience! You will wish that you’d done it sooner!

You are bold, brave, beautiful, courageous, magnetic, powerful, loved and amazing! I hope you never forget it.

I can’t wait to experience this day with you!

Celebrating Seven Years in Business!

Many good things happened this month, and celebrating seven years in business was one of them!

Seven years ago, I decided to take the leap. I had no idea what was ahead. All I knew was that I’d discovered an amazing little box that let light in and allowed me to show others the light that I see in their relationships as couples, families, and beautiful individuals.

I wasn’t looking for it all. It found me.

These past seven years have been nothing short of AMAZING. I have been incredibly blessed to get to know some of the sweetest couples, share their stories, and be present for them on one of the most special days of their lives to photograph the candid, the in between, and relationships of family and friends that they hold dear.

There have been many days that I felt like giving up, days that I thought I’d never fill my calendar and days that I had no idea what I was doing.

For a long time, I felt that I was just a mom with a camera as I allowed side eyes and what people thought, or what I thought they thought, to creep in.

But deep down inside I knew that there was something greater.

Yes, I am a mom with a camera who understand and values fleeting time, I didn’t have a photographer for my wedding day so I value and show up with everything to give for every one of my couples on their wedding day, I value relationships and those that have played a pivotal role in my life. Every single time I pick up my camera, through my lens I see as a mom, a wife, a daughter, a granddaughter, a friend, a sister, and a strong woman.

My dad gave me the BEST advice when I decided after six months of getting a new camera, that I wanted to start a business and become a photographer.

He told me not to wait for anyone to tell me who I was. If I wanted to become a photographer, then go, do, and become.

It has taken time, hard work, lessons to learn, aligning and realigning my why with my values and goals, and the becoming never stops because you never stop growing.

Thank YOU immensely for the honor to be part of your wedding days and special celebrations of life.

I’m SO excited for all to come as I continue to photograph love and joy on the weekends, and photograph life-changing shoots that empower and inspire at the studio during the week.

Thank YOU for being a part of this incredible seven-year journey that can’t stop won’t stop.

Cheers to celebrating seven years in business! The best is yet to come!

More about my journey below with Part I and Part II.

I thought I would be a history teacher. That was my dream. I got married, became a mom, homeschooled my kids for 10 years, and realized memories were slipping away from me too quickly. I picked up a camera and started documenting my loved ones like crazy. I watched my life change-these photos were a gift to others. They grew our family roots deeper. I ended up making history myself.
