A Family Photo Session

debra-19 During our stay in Cambridge this summer, I had the chance to catch up with my photographer friend Kristen of Kristen Joy Emack Photography.  Having always admired her personal style of portrait photography, I asked Kristen to take pictures of our family.  She accepted and invited us to a spot that she chose very carefully.  Her ease with the lens and the people in front of it shows through the realness of her approach to photography.   Here are a few images from our morning session with Kristen.  I'm so pleased with the results. debra-5

Thank you Kristen for capturing the essence of our family.


A Tribute To 2013

I was somewhat in denial of the New Year upon us, until I started looking through past blog posts and realized just how much transpired during the last 12 months.  What began as an extension of my work, the Cocoon Home Blog has become more of a personal dairy replete with  fleeting moments,  spontaneous visits,  favorite places,  culinary awakenings,  a little matchmaking,  brand new endeavors,  familiar settings  and  furry best friends.

Thanks so much for taking the journey through 2013 with me.  I wish for all to have a safe, healthy, joyful and prosperous 2014.

Happy New Year!!!

Life Lately

What's been filling up your weeks lately?
