Well, it's been a LONG time. Life got in the way last year and I wasn't keeping up with blogging, but I am hoping to blog as many older sessions as I can get to and share the great clients I've had over the last 8 months (wow). But, now, a recent adorable newborn session.
One of my great clients from west of the city referred her friend to me when she wanted newborn photos. I arrived at their beautiful home on a sunny Sunday morning. Little J's parents are awesome. They were obviously over the moon in love with J and each other. I know, I always say my clients are awesome, but it's always true!
We did their session at 20 days new since he was born early and was a tiny little guy. He proved to be a fantastic little client. We got so many great shots as he stayed sleepy and even got not one, but multiple smiles! Enjoy!
I had seen this family around town, but met them when I went to check out their house and plan our session. Again, I get such amazing clients! The day of the session, we were doing family shots first, so while mom and dad finished getting ready, big sister, H and I hung out. I felt like I was talking to someone my own age. She is smart and BEAUTIFUL ! I mean beautiful (good luck, mom and dad!). Well, you'll see below. How could she not be though? The whole family is good looking. I think the first photo makes the list of my top favorite family photos of all time. I also loved how gentle and sweet H was with her baby brother. He wasn't very happy to just sleep and pose, but we got into a rhythm after a while. Enjoy!!
D's mom is one of my closest friends which is why I can say, he definitely has his mom's attitude (love you Jen). He has a strong personality and certainly decides when and if he wants to cooperate. :) He's adorable and so smart and happy (despite what the 2nd and 3rd pics below show). He was not psyched about his shoot back in November and he absolutely did not want to smile and cooperate at first. But, after a while, we got that cute smile and had a lot of fun. It's hard to believe he was born 10 weeks early and so tiny, giving us a little scare(see first image). Enjoy!
I was referred to this family by two other great clients. H was 6 months old and they hadn't had any professional shots yet. We ended up with a beautiful afternoon the day after Thanksgiving. I met them at their house in Quincy and we did some shots in the yard and the nursery. Little H is very smiley and happy and his parents, like my other client parents, were wonderful! Enjoy!
I've known Colleen for a long time. We used to live one street away from each other and worked at the same place for a while. I was excited she wanted me to photograph her second child for his newborn shoot. We had a great shoot and big brother got some pics too. Can't wait to see these adorable brothers again! Enjoy!

First, can we just talk about how I photograph gorgeous families? I mean seriously. From mom and dad to every child, the families are beautiful! This family is no exception! I first met this family at some events around town and have now known them for over a year. They were planning a session for the Fall and then they won a gift certificate at the Charlestown Mother's Association Gala. We met at the Bunker Hill Monument (one of the favorite locations in Charlestown) on a nice fall afternoon. The temps were warm and all went smooth. Sure, little miss was a little feisty and would decide she no longer wanted to be invovled at times. But, a little side chat with her and the promise of a lollipop helped me coax her back to that adorable smile! And little Mr. Oh my, how cute!! Enjoy!
I met little J and his parents at their house in Charlestown in early November. They are such great people and he is super adorable! We did a few pics on their front steps and then made our way to the Monument and the Training Field. J has the best smile (especially with those few tiny teeth) and was so happy the entire time. He also makes the funniest little face where he scrunches up his nose. Oh, and talk about a gorgeous family! Well, you'll see below. Enjoy!
The B family contacted me for a shoot and I just happened to have a last minute opening for them. I'm glad I did because the weather was great and little N was adorable! Oh, and another "Small world" moment. N's mom went to my high school in NEW HAMPSHIRE and graduated two years before me and now lives in Charlestown. I love all the connections. Anyway, we started with some shots of him in his Halloween costume. Have you ever seen a cuter lobster??
N didn't really want to be put down. He was about 9 months and was happy to laugh and smile at me...as long as his parents were holding him. That didn't affect us getting some great shots of him. Such a happy baby! Enjoy!
I met T and his parents at Powder House Park in Somerville on a beautiful Fall morning. They are friends with my cousins and I found out that day, that T's grandparents are good friends with my uncle. Small world! T was dressed in the most adorable outfit. He is a happy, smiley baby and was at that perfect age where he could sit but not really move yet. Enjoy!
I know many of N's family members and his parents received some gift certificates toward a newborn shoot (becoming a popular shower gift!). He was tiny and adorable. Dad is a cop, so we made sure to incorporate that! He also had a little onesie made for the Cafe his grandparents own, which was big on him, but of course, we made sure to use it! He was nice and sleepy and was super easy to pose, making for a smooth session. The last picture is perhaps my favorite. You'll see why. ENJOY!
