Long time friends and beautiful family, the Diodati’s of Haverhill asked me up to do some portraits in their home recently. So we pushed the furniture aside and I set up shop in their family room. It’s tough to get this many kids/teens/young adults to meet up for any reason, let alone having their picture taken with their siblings and parents but somehow they were able to pull it all off! I think they look great. Be sure to leave a comment and let them know what you think.

Alex, Erica, Stevie & Anthony  (aka the kids..)

The 2011 Minnechaug Boys Track season started this week and boy am I rusty track photographer!! Track is a challenging subject to shoot. The action is fast, the sun is either blinding you or casting heavy shadows and people are are always getting in the way….anyway enough excuses lol! I have a few more upcoming meets to practice at over the next few weeks.

First off Garrett Agustin in the high jump. Yep, my baby boy.


Tyler Chateauvert, javelin thrower extraordinaire…


Willy Damon putting in a huge effort in the 100 yd dash


Garrett Agustin winning his heat in the 100…


Donovan Haywood in the 100…


All of these shots were taken the Nikkor 85mm f1.4 lens.  A great and versatile lens but maybe a little too short for a messy triple track meet.  Long focal lengths are your friend when there is so many people and stuff in the shot.  See more pix of track on my Facebook page www.facebook.com/mariaagustinphotography.

We had a few potential models over to our studio a couple of weeks ago. With the new space, there was plenty of room for friends and associates Beckie, Dave and I to spread out. We had a blast!… except for when I almost almost amputated my finger on the rickety old fan that now has officially retired.  (I’m lucky the blades were plastic.  All in the name of hair motion…

For my photography peeps, these were shot with AB beauty dish (love that), really cheap knockoff strip box (still does it for me) and my fab Nikon 24-70 f2.8. 

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy…
