I'm Jessica McDaniel, and May 2017 marked my 14th anniversary photographing babies and their families all around Boston.

Three summers ago I met tiny little M on Nantucket, when my old friend Gabriel Frasca and his incredible wife Amanda Lydon invited me over the deck of Straight Wharf (their restaurant on the island).  M was only 7 weeks old then:

Now she’s a big girl of 3 and a half, and she has a handsome little 1 1/2 year old brother.  Nothing really beats being able to come back to families years later and see how kids grow.  I know I say it over and over again, so forgive me, but it really is amazing.

This photoshoot was a present for their grandmother, so we got some fun playing-with-Nonna pictures, of course:

And getting the braids:

Coloring with Nonna:

Wonderful to see you guys again!  Hope to get to Nantucket this summer!

    I love "getting the braids" the most or maybe the "eskimo kiss. Perhaps, I like "family tickle" the most...

    Love, laughter, fun, joy and a great amount of tenderness, makes life in this family a treasure. I think Marin is teaching Henry, "that good clothes open all doors". I'd love to be a fly on the wall listening to the happiness.
