family Snowball fight! {boston family photographer}

Heather comes up with great photo shoot ideas for her family sessions. You can find a few shots from last year’s Family Photo session in the wrap up gallery, where her daughters Alana and Nadia are riding bikes in their pretty dresses and showing off their soccer ball skills - also in their dresses (which makes them young women after my own heart!).

A few weeks ago I got an email from Heather saying she had this idea about having the family session in the snow; shots of them sledding and having a snowball fight, etc. We would need to wing it a bit, we both agreed, since the session depended on weather. I was in!

Weather and scheduling worked in our favor and on Saturday I went to their place and had a ball watching them have a ball…while making snowballs.

The highlight for me was when we were setting up a shot of everyone throwing the snowball in my direction and Alana claimed “I have terrible aim!” then promptly nailed me right in the face. It was pretty much perfect!




Rowan is Here! {boston Family and baby photographer}

My friend Sheila had a baby! His name is Rowan and he is a delightful, adorable little peanut. Sheila and Steve’s first child, Meera, is super fun, and I learned at my New Year’s Eve party that she’s a My Little Pony fan so we’re pretty much BFFs now.

Sheila called me to do a newborn photography session and it turned into a family photo session, including a doting uncle and grandma too! Rowan is delightful and very loved and no doubt his big sister will teach him how to be mischievous in the best way possible!

Cindy and Her Family {Boston Family Photographer}

I’m always thrilled to add a new family to my roster and Cindy, her daughter Mia, age 3, and husband Richard were no exception. Including a charming wooden puzzle into their shoot was a nice touch and I was glad they had it, along with some interesting light and bright spaces in their home. And who can resist some jumping on the bed!



•Amy & Co. {BOSTON FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER}•

As a kid, my parents would take my brother and me to a small neighborhood in Cape Cod called Tahanto, where we would spend a week or so. I was really small, so I don't remember much beyond the feeling of happiness I had being there.

Amy and I are from the same town, and her family frequently would visit the same neighborhood at the same time as us. Looking back, this was probably intentional. I remember riding bikes, and I remember wandering alone, just us kids, to a rusty-yet-enjoyable playground not to far from our cottages. I especially remember walking at night, both our families, to get ice cream. The excitement of walking in the near dark, and getting a special treat, while my brother and Amy sang a song they'd learned, maybe at school. It's on the tip of my tongue...something about gooseburgers? Pickles were involved (man, that's gonna bug me).

There was also a parade in that neighborhood in the summer which we participated in. Somewhere there exists a photo of myself and Andy, Amy's younger brother, wearing clown costumes, and another of my brother and Amy dressed as cavemen. Their costumes were made possible with seaweed and, I think, pillow cases. Apparently I remember far more than I thought of those times.

Back on track here (get on with it already, Cyd). Thanks to FB, Amy and I have been connected for a while now, and I was psyched she picked me to come and photograph the many generations of her family on the day of her mom's birthday. (click to enlarge).

 

 

• Tommy {BOSTON FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER} •

The fall brings with it leaves and cider, and lots of smiles into my lens (the holidays are great incentive for clients to get in touch)! Tommy, while he looked serious (and disgruntled) in a few of these shots, is a beautiful little man with parents who adore him and a grandma who's a champ at peek-a-boo (very helpful for family shots!).
