Nicole O'Neil Photography
I get my coffee every morning at Zume's Coffeehouse in Charlestown. It has great atmosphere, great food/coffee, and great people working there. Maryellen works in the ktichen and could be one of the nicest people I've ever met. I was thrilled when she asked if I would photograph her grandchildren, Gavin and Hailey. I met them in the Charlestown Navy Yard, my favorite Charlestown spot for photos.
I could tell right away that Gavin was high energy which is why I'm glad I run photo shoots the way I do! I pulled out a ball and asked if he'd like to play with it. He threw it, kicked it and played catch with his sister and I got some great shots. Before he had a chance to get bored with it, I asked him to take a walk with me to a tree to get some pics. I then, pulled out bubbles for them to play with. I've learned it's best to keep young children busy and happy and not make them POSE too much. We had a great session and I am sharing some of my favorites here.
