Two little guys getting a kick out of each other

Before I show you all the photos where these two brothers had a total blast together, I had to show you this one, which is just about my favorite one from the whole shoot. Just perfect.

And I’m sorry to go back to more artsy pictures, but don’t you LOVE this of the boys begging mama for a snack from the fridge? I just love their cute little legs and mom’s fabulous boots all together…

One more artsy one and I’ll stop – but LOOK at these boys under the table. C’mon now with the cuteness.

Lovely family portraits. The boys are simply gorgeous.

Fall Public Garden Minishoot #18

Look at these twinkling eyes! I loved meeting this guy for the first time at my late October Public Garden Minishoot – he and his mama had such fun playing together in the trees and the leaves there. I love it when we’re able to document a soon-t0-be older sibling – it’s a time of life when there’s so much change about to happen… I love being able to spend some time focusing on #1 for a bit. (But maybe that’s just me, speaking as a first child – hehe…)

Fall Public Garden Minishoot #23

This fall I shot 26 families over the course of two days in the Boston Public Garden, and I’m realizing this is one of the first few that I’ve blogged for you guys. Sorry the blog is a little sparse these days, I’m only blogging and Facebook-album-ing on request, which means there are fewer posts going up.

But here are two amazing older kiddos. I took photos of them when they were babies, and now they done gone and growed up on me :) I loved getting a chance to see them again, it always makes me happy to pop back into children’s lives for a glimpse now and again.

And the colors in the Public Garden during my minishoot days this fall were AMAZING, so I had to blog this in color for you.

See what I mean?

A few of these just cracked me up. The brother creeping up…

Post head-bonk – OW!

Wonderful to see you guys again, thanks so much for meeting up with me!

 

Rachel - November 7, 2014 - 3:05 pm

These are beautiful, Jess! You really captured who they are. <3

Smiles from a boy and his pup

What fun to see these guys again! And gotta love a little Indian summer in late October (this was about 10 days ago when it was 70 degrees out – you know, the usual – late October hose weather…)

Sue Aoki - November 3, 2014 - 10:44 pm

These are the best yet!!!

Hlee - November 4, 2014 - 8:48 am

Ruth Aoki - November 6, 2014 - 9:59 am

He is growing so fast. He certainly loves the water. These are fabulous pictures. I marvel at how she can catch him in the moment.

I can’t believe it’s that time of year. They are just smashing. Captures the love and spirit of your family. And Dixie is quite the model!

Trains, trains, trains

Fun game! If you see the smallest brother in the photo, you can play a fun little game of find the train :) He was in the mood to hold on to Thomas the Tank Engine during the photos, and why not? He’s holding on tight to him in every single photo.

I adore this of the three of them most of all:

Wonderful to see you guys as always! I feel like we need to update your family retrospective video to include these. Or we’ll just think of these as the first installment in the next video we can make for you guys in a few more years. ;)

 

Two strong, fun, incredible girls

Look at these sweet girls! They’re five months old now, and they’re doing so well. They were born teenie tiny preemies, and they’ve spent these last five months being fabulous, getting stronger and grinning.

It’s always my little challenge to myself when I photograph twins to see if I can learn which twin is which during the hour I spend with a family, and then really get those names/faces into my head so that a couple of weeks later when I’m deep into editing their photos, those names look like those faces. OK, be honest… you have to tell me, did I remember right?

On the left we have Ms. J and on the right it’s V… how’d I do?

And then they’ve switched places in this one, V on the left and J on the right…

You got me on this one ;)

Ms. J…

Ms. V…

Daddy and V:

A big grin from J:

And then V enjoying her mobile:

And Daddy giving J her end-of-photoshoot bottle:

It was just wonderful to meet you! Thanks so much for having me.

This incredible boy

This is always one of my favorite photoshoots of the year. I know I’m not supposed to have favorites, but I’ve been seeing sweet J since he was 15 months old – just months after his heart transplant, and we’ve done one shoot a year since then, so this was his eighth shoot. And what an eight year old! He’s got a ton of energy, still loves the swings, cracks his parents up with his antics, and is doing really well with school. He’s mastered the stairs in his new house, and is just an all-around amazing kid. I always leave with a huge smile on my face after spending time with these guys.

Wonderful to see you and sweet old Rocky as always!

Six photoshoots in five years

This is #8 in my series of Family Retrospective Videos – for more information about this project or to sign up to be added to the list of families who wants one, click this link and scroll down the page through the previous posts back to the first or second one (where I describe it in more detail).

I got to meet these guys five years ago because their cousins had been doing photos with me for a few years already at that point, and they wanted in on the fun. I’ve adored watching them grow.

And without further ado, here’s a 3 1/2 minute video of Brady, Nora and Finn’s family with photos from six photoshoots over the last five years:

Meetcha at the beach!

Met these three cuties at their beach house a week or two ago – and we had such a fantastic time. And I had to post these in color. I know you guys have heard me tell my color vs. b&w story a zillion times (if you haven’t it’s about 3/4 of the way down this page), but this be bright beachy photoshoot just screamed color to me.

These boys have such fun together – I always love the energy and fun vibe at their house. I loved getting a chance to hang out with them while they splashed in the waves.

Even though it was high tide, we still found ways to have fun and play.

Really fun to hang out with you guys as always!

Seven photoshoots in the last decade

I met this wonderful family ten summers ago, before I was a mama, when I’d been a baby photographer for just one year. They’ve grown up with Boston Baby Photos. What fun!

And without further ado, here’s a 3 1/2 minute video of Eliza, Joseph and Patrick’s family with photos from seven photoshoots over the last ten years:
