I'm a hopeless romantic who finds great joy in creating and capturing connection and beauty wherever I go.
Hi there! Welcome to the Christine Hazel Photography blog, a journal about my photography, life, travels, and advice. Stay a while and say hello!
Would you believe it if I told you it was raining 20 minutes before this gorgeous Mill Pond Park engagement session?! After sneaking a peek at the radar, we decided that we should continue on with the session. And, let me tell you–I’m so glad we did! As any New Englander knows, peak fall colors […]
You could say that I came home from Allison and Eric’s Arnold Arboretum engagement session ecstatic. You could also say that I came home cold! The weather truly kept us on our toes. We had a mix of sunshine, dark clouds, harsh winds, and drizzle. But we still were able to capture this important milestone […]
If anything makes me happy, it’s definitely a fall shoot! I love the vibrant oranges and reds, but during this session I discovered that I also love finding a pile of neutral leaves! I fell in love with the earthy feel of this shoot, and hopefully, you will too. ☺️ Now that Julia and Preston […]
Has anyone else already ordered their body weight in Starbucks pumpkin spice cold brews? No? Just me? Well…Fall is HERE, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! The crisp nights, sweaters, tall boots, apple crisp, pretty leaves. Ugh–what more can someone want?! This past weekend I had the honor of taking my “mini-me”, Nellie, […]
Can I just tell you–you’re in for a treat! Just wait until you see these maternity pictures! Tamarre and her family spent a Friday evening with me at the Longfellow’s Wayside Inn property in Sudbury, MA to celebrate the upcoming birth of her new baby, due in September! Many people love the Wayside Inn for […]
Before I sound too confident in myself, let’s start with a quick story. Last September, I attended my very first styled shoot. I showed up 10 minutes late, but fortunately I arrived when the planner was still going over the rules, so I didn’t miss any shooting time. At the end of her spiel, she […]
As we entered March, my sister-in-law realized that she barely had any pictures of her pregnant with her second little one…so we had to change that before it was too late! Of course, I was happy to help! The only problem was that it was BELOW FREEZING when we took these pictures. 🥶 Ryan, Jillian, […]
When it comes to planning your big day, the first few steps seem to be pretty straight forward–you find your venue, which usually helps select your date, and then you say yes to the dress. But what comes next? Of course, there are many right ways to plan your wedding, but in my opinion, picking […]
I don’t know about you, but 2019 has been a year of crazy highs and lows! I started Christine Hazel Photography in the spring, so of course, that was a high! I had so much fun this year documenting weddings, engagements, senior sessions, rehearsal dinners, and more. I’m also super grateful that I can document […]
Do you know what’s pretty cool? Cake has a place in everyone’s lives always–no exceptions. We learn about cake in high school history class; even if Marie Antoinette didn’t say, “Let them eat cake,” we all still learn about how she might have. We ooh and ahh over gorgeous wedding cakes, learn to make our […]
