I haven't shot a big sporting event in what feels like ages. So when I was asked last minute to shoot a varisty boys lacrosse game I was a bit nervous. It was pouring rain all day and the game was at night. To add to the pressure, Cohasset won State Championships last year and Hingham is their rivals. Luckily for me the rain progessively slowed as the game wore on and eventually petered out. While I couldn't feel my toes by the end of the game, (note to self, get feet warmers), the rain made everything more intense and the light on the field was gorgeous. It was such an exciting game with back to back goals, returns, a build to tie within the last minutes and seconds of the game, to overtime and finally a winning goal by Cohasset within the three-minute mark of double overtime. A few of my favorite shots from the night are below, thanks for looking!

I started rock climbing when I met Ryan. I'd dabbled here and there before but never really got that serious. And then we started.
Fast forward 8 months later and I find myself in Lincoln Woods, with this crazy-wonderful human. I much prefer long routes to bouldering but Lincoln Woods is a mecca for bouldering lovers. And man is it a perfect spot! It was my first time bouldering outside of the gym. I loved being able to finally breathe some fresh air, take the time to enjoy nature but I will definetly need some more practice before I'm totally comfortable bouldering outside. By the end of the afternoon just watching Ry traverse the rocks with such ease and grace was enough for me. It was a pretty great day: warm, beauitful light, and I was outdoors with someone I love.
Added bonus to the evening, (and I have to mention this because I love good food), the unbelievable dinner he whipped up after, as usual. Tenderloin wrapped in proscutto with homemade roasted tomato risotto and kale!
SO excited for the season to really kick off and hoping to get, (on a rope), outside soon. Here are a few shots I took when I was too tuckered out to climb and my monkey-man had some extra fun:
