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!
When I say I’m feeling pretty jazzy about this Fan Pier Park engagement session, you may wonder exactly what I mean. 😂 Let me set the stage for you. Since we were on the water next to Boston Harbor, the conditions were naturally windy. Add in chilly temperatures and the impending threat of rain. And […]
After watching my own flowers fail to bloom and reading reports of blighted cherry blossoms in New England, I admit I was nervous for this Boston blossom engagement session. Fortunately, my time with Yan and Adam couldn’t have been more perfect! I met Yan and Adam at Harvard’s Arnold Arboretum for their engagement session. They […]
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 […]
