This guy is moving around like it’s his job. Nine months old, and nothing stops this guy. He’s just perfection, and I loved seeing him again for another shoot from his Baby’s First Year package.
You really can’t beat the daddy squishing face moments, or the super happy reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar with mama. I do love the nibbling Sophie the giraffe one, though, and my very favorite might be the one on the bed as he laughs at both his parents.
Really fun to see you guys again!
These guys were my last shoot of the day, and they were super fun. It’d been a few years since I’d seen them, and I just love it when I get to see those little guys growing up.
Wonderful to see you guys :)
Look who’s one! And she’s walking around like a little star :) These guys were my 2nd to last minishoot a couple of weeks ago, and we had such fun by the pink tulips, playing peek-a-boo behind the birch trees… she was wonderful.
So fun to meet you guys!
I haven’t seen these kiddos in a few years but I’ve been taking pictures of them since they were both perfect chubby babies. They’re both so old now! Thanks so much for coming back, I just adored seeing you guys. Minis are such a great way to reconnect with old friends :)
One quickie 4 wk old photoshoot with my extraordinary baby niece? There’s nothing more perfect. We did it last weekend, and the shoot was quick, but the girl was a dream. I am so in love with this little lady. She’s incredible. And she’s getting rolls! Eeek!
It’s so fun for me to know people first as friends and then get a chance to take their pictures – I love that. I’m lucky enough to have met many many people as clients first and then over years and years of watching their babies grow they become friends. But this one is the opposite… friends first, and now yay, getting a chance to photograph them! I’m feeling gushy today, sorry. Maybe it’s editing pictures of one of my daughter’s best friends, and one of my favorite neighbors… When I get a chance to take pictures of kids I’ve hung around with, played with… it’s just such an amazing feeling. I feel like I know the smiles so well, I just adore being able to capture them.
Thanks guys, I’m so glad you did a mini!
For this minishoot shoot we had a lot of fun with this gorgeous group of pink tulips over in the corner of the Public Garden. In color the photos are gorgeous, but there’s also something really incredible about them in b&w – the light for this 1:30pm shoot was bright and intense, and it caught the light colored tulips just right – letting them reflect light up into sweet A and her mama’s faces.
I really just adore mommy/daughter pictures. Happy (early) Mother’s Day!
So much happened in these 20 minutes, I almost don’t know where to begin. So I guess I’ll start at the end. We thought we were just about done when mama brought out the bubble machine thing, which she thought was broken… but big brother B and big sister P managed to get it working again (with just a little 8 yr old and 6 yr old elbow grease and sheer force of will, I think). So THEN they proceeded to have the best time with the bubble gun thing – and we got some of my favorite pictures from their shoot in those last five minutes.
Oh, but I also can’t forget to mention how much I love the picture of the pile the whole family with a minor meltdown happening in the middle of it all. I just love those kind of real pictures :)
I was so thrilled these guys bid on and won this session at the Ashmont Nursery School auction last month, because it’d been just exactly a year since their last session with me, and I was so excited to see big 2 year old B again. He did not disappoint – I adore the fun pictures we got. What a dream of a kiddo :) I am especially in love with this mama and B picture (what with Mother’s Day coming on Sunday – I’ve got my mind on mamas)… just super sweet.
By this point in the day it was 10:30am and the sun was continuing to feel fantastic, the little guys were showing off their skills… and these 20 minute photoshoots were flying.
This guy just turned 1! I can’t believe how quickly the year flew by – and I loved punctuating the birthday week with a photoshoot. Look at those walking skills :) I think one of my very faves is the daddy rolling onto his back and playing with G down on the ground – it was so spontaneous and sweet. That and the 2nd walking picture towards the end of the shoot, when G is walking so happily towards mama and daddy’s looking on proudly in the background.
It was such a treat to see you guys with a camera in my hand – thanks for meeting me!
So I’m not doing my normal pick a bunch of my favorite pictures and post them on the blog thing because this photo is blowing me out of the water. I adore it so much, and love that it happened super spontaneously. These fantastic, fun parents wanted to do a smoochy picture, and the rest of the clan decided to show how they really felt about the smooch. It’s one of those staged but not staged shots, and it makes me smile. I love these guys. They’re a great example of my not-always-baby photos… it’s the name of the business, but teenagers (and almost teenagers) are always “babies” to someone, after all.
Oh, and I had to show you this one in color. Every one of my photos is always delivered to my clients these days in both b&w and color. I tend to lean toward blogging the b&w because it allows the emotion to be the strongest element in the photo… and I always love the simplicity of light and dark. But the color here adds so much energy that I had to show it this way. Wonderful to see you guys, as always!
Now these kind of shoots are SOOooo fun for me – when I haven’t seen a little one since they were teenie, and I get to see how big and amazing they’ve gotten. I haven’t seen little L since she was mere days old. And now she’s 20 months old, and just t0-die-for cute.
Am I right?
So wonderful to see you guys again! I can’t believe how quickly the time flew :)
Bang for your buck – that’s what I call this. You visited the blog, thought you might get to see pictures of a gorgeous, round, happy belly, and lo and behold, you get two. How lucky are you?
My sister (belly on the right) and brother-in-law are expecting my niece to arrive momentarily (pinch me, I know, right?) and I’m finally getting the time to blog all these belly pictures. Quick before babies arrive! The fun part of this is that one of her bestest friends in the whole wide world is ALSO expecting a baby girl, just a few weeks later.
Since these two girls will inevitably be best friends and in each other’s weddings in a few decades, I was excited be the first to officially photograph them together. We also invited daddies and siblings (be they human or canine, it’s all good), and got piles of pictures of bellies, in all sorts of situations. My favorite, you ask? I think I might like big brother H holding up the bellies in the last shot. But there are loads of fun ones in here. Enjoy :)
Just setting records over here… nbd. This has got to be the biggest Boston Baby Photos picture ever. You may have even seen it on 93 if you were driving North into the city recently. For about three weeks this photo that I took of two fabulously adorable Ashmont Nursery School kiddos has been rotating through the New England Carpenter’s Training Center’s LED sign. The sign itself is 30 ft x 20 ft high – yowsa! You photo buffs will be interested to learn that the image I needed to send them was not super high res at all – this enormous, gi-huge-ic LED display supports images that are only 400 pixels wide by 600 pixels tall. In photo terms, that’s super low-res. For reference, that’s the same size as the photos here on my blog – not normally high enough resolution for print, let alone display on anything large. Isn’t that interesting? The other cool fact that photo nerds out there will appreciate? Vertically, the display only depicts every third pixel of the image – it’s just a function of the kind of LED sign it is. I just thought that was super fascinating, wanted to share.
Now here’s a shot from the side of the highway (I pulled over completely, don’t worry – and snapped this with my iPhone from a parked, safe position, I promise):
Now wait, Jess, you ask – what is that photo all about? Well, I’m glad you asked. This Saturday, one of my favorite places in the world, the Ashmont Nursery School, is holding its annual auction to benefit the school’s scholarship fund. This spring I’ve donated two of my 26 minishoots to charity, so even though I’m sold out and have a waiting list for Public Garden minishoots this spring, there’s an opportunity this Saturday to bid on the 11am Sat, 4/27 appointment plus all the high res files. In past years it’s gone for lots less than the $625 face value – you’ll likely get a deal.
Interested? You can either come to the ANS auction (see link below) or you can bid via text during the live auction (Saturday 8-8:30pm). To get in on the text bidding, email me and we’ll set it up.
More minishoot info is here.
And here’s the link to the auction itself.
