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!

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…)

Seventeen photoshoots in eight years

This is #9 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).

What fun it’s been watching these two grow from teenie babies into fun, adventurous children. Our first photoshoot was in 2006, and I’ve been able to go back and see them a couple of times each year since then.

And without further ado, here’s a 5 1/2 minute video of Grayson and Helena’s family with photos from seventeen photoshoots over the last eight years:

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:

Mama holding V, Daddy with 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:

(Hint: Start playing the video, and then click on the little gear thing that takes you to “Settings” in the bottom right corner of the video. Choose 720p to make the slideshow play in high-definition. You can also choose “Full Screen” down there in that corner of the video too.)

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!

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:

Catching dragonflies and ziplining

I love meeting new families! So often I get to go back and see children grow year after year – but it’s a really fun change of pace to get a chance to jump in and meet a pair of kiddos for the first time when they’re a bit older: already running around catching dragonflies and zooming along on their zipline.

So here, without further ado, is 7 1/2 year old R and 5 year old M with their super-fun parents:

 

Wonderful to meet you guys!
