Jordan Anthony

Jill Mac Newborn, Uncategorized

Hi there! I haven’t blogged in a while, so I figured I’d return with a post about the newest member of the Bates family, Jordan Anthony.

I first met this little guy a little over a week ago at Beth Israel Hospital when he decided he wanted to be 3 1/2 weeks early! Fast forward to a week later; I got to spend my morning with this little peanut after he had settled in at home. Jordan was so excited to get his photos taken, he did not sleep a wink for the whole 2 hours I was there.

Oh, and then there is Penny! Penny is Nick and Colleen’s sweet 1 year old rescue pup. She followed me all around the house and had her eyes on her new baby brother the whole time.

Nick and Colleen – you two make parenting look easy!

Dario + Kristen

Jill Mac Engagement

Meet Dario and Kristen! They are getting married on NYE ? at the beautiful Salem Waterfront Hotel, and it can’t come soon enough. We went back and forth for weeks deciding where the perfect spot would be to take engagement photos. Kristen decided on Rowes Wharf, and although a little chilly, we couldn’t have wished for a better day.

We started off at the gazebo in the back of the Boston Harbor Hotel and the light was beautiful. To make this session even more exciting, Kristen and Dario brought their own champagne glasses ?and champagne ?! They are beautiful Waterford Crystal glasses engraved with their names on it, which was a gift from Kristens mother.

Although it was cold, these two were troopers running around Rowes Wharf with me and taking all kinds of photos; we joked that they could create an album with just their engagement photos.

To end our day, we stopped at the Pasta Beach Boston for a drink, where we chatted about their big day. Seriously, I cannot wait!! ?

Kellin James

Yesterday I got to spend my morning with sweet Kellin James. You all already know how much I love when families want to incorporate their pups in their family photos. Where ever Kellin went, Ruger followed and I didn’t mind one bit.

Congratulations Dani & John, your baby boy is so perfect

“First I’ll check my my baby brother, then I’m ready to pose for my treat”
I cannot get over his eyes, I just love them!
Kellin was over his photoshoot towards the end, but as soon as his Momma held him he calmed right down.

Brian + Amanda

Jill Mac Wedding

On the 3rd of February, right before the Patriots beat the Rams in the Superbowl, Amanda + Brian tied the knot with close family and friends at Rosarias in Saugus, MA.

I love intimate ceremonies, you can truly feel all the love in the room.


Theres something about Father + Daughter’s throughout the wedding day that just get me every time. I love witnessing the love a Father has for his daughter when he is giving her away.

I met Amanda during puppy training class 2 years ago with my crazy pup, Layla. When we found out we lived one street over from each other we instantly started having puppy play dates, although sometimes Layla was a little too hyper for Jada.

Here she is! Isn’t Jada just the cutest ever? I’m obsessed.

When Amanda + Brian asked my husband and I to photograph and DJ their wedding we were ecstatic. It truly is an honor when friends ask me to photograph one of the biggest days of their lives. You two have something special and it clearly shows.
