Early Fall Family Session

Boston family photographer

Heather is one of my fellow NICU nurses and she and her family are also some of the most beautiful people ever! They are a fun bunch to photograph so I was super excited when Heather contacted me to do their family session! Little Alden has more energy than most toddlers I know and I was almost out of breath by the end of their session from chasing after him! You must check out his adorable little sneakers! I think they gave him a little extra speed, or at least that’s what I’m telling myself…ha. He is seriously such a cutie and I could just squeeze him!

We decided to do their family session in early Fall at World’s End in Hingham, MA since it is one of the most beautiful places in MA, in my opinion. It has rolling hills, open spaces, beautiful tree lined paths, and even an ocean backdrop in some spots. Pretty much everything you’d ever want for a perfect family photo shoot.

Heather informed me that they had tried but had not ever been able to get a family photo where Alden was smiling so that became my mission for the day. I think we succeeded!

lifestyle family photographyA lot of my sessions start out with posed family photos and then I break it down into images of the children with each parent and do a few different combinations, but kids get bored after a little while, so you really have to change things up and make it fun too. After I get a few “formal” family photos, my family sessions tend to turn into a more lifestyle feel. I’ll usually ask you what gets your child to laugh and then I have you do that. In this case, Alden loved being thrown into the air by his parents, so that’s exactly what we did! He was beyond thrilled!

I’ve found that I love the “in between” shots the most. These are the moments where I love to catch a cute interaction between two family members like this one (above) of Heather and Alden.

Newton Family Photography Session

Newton family photography

You don’t have to find a fancy location to get beautiful photos of your kids. We ended up choosing to do this family’s session on the grounds of the Newton Public Library and we learned all you really need is an adorable family, some open space, and some good light!

After all, photography literally means “writing with light.”

This session was such a fun one, and one of my favorites from this past Fall. This was a Newton family photography session with three of the sweetest girls I have ever met. They range from 15 months old to 7 years old and they each had their own awesome personality to share. These three sisters bring fun and energy wherever they go!

They were filled with energy and spunk and we had a wonderful time playing around the Winnie the Pooh sculptures at the Newton Free Library and exploring the beautiful surrounding spaces. The youngest definitely kept her parents running! If you know anything about 15 month olds, you’ll know they are usually so excited about their new found walking/running skills and they love to use these new skills. Well, that’s just what their youngest was doing! Every second she got, she was on the move! And usually going in the opposite direction of everyone else!

Now onto the photos:

Boston Newborn Session

Boston newborn photography

10 day old baby Alice traveled all the way from Norfolk with her lovely parents and adorable 2 year old big brother for her newborn session. I was thrilled when they booked their Boston newborn session with me since they were a referral from one of my clients that I just adore. I pretty much knew they were going to be a sweet family and boy, was I right!

First of all, check out this adorable baby yawn! Newton newborn photography

Alice is oh so pretty in pink!

I always try my best to capture a sweet newborn smile for the parents. There are subtle signs that babies give when they are in a deep enough sleep to flash these quick but oh so adorable smiles. Here’s one from Alice’s session! Success!

I captured a bunch of images of Alice wide awake but my goal is to also get photos of the baby all curled up and it’s ideal if they are asleep for these shots. My studio is nice and toasty, ready to make anyone who enters quite sleepy. For newborn sessions, I keep my studio at 82 degrees to help keep new babies comfortable. Newborns can get cold easily, especially when undressed, so the 82 degrees feels wonderful to them! If I’m not sweating while I’m photographing their session, then it’s not warm enough for the baby!

Will is ONE :: Sudbury One Year Old Session

Happy 1st Birthday Sweet Will!

 

Boston baby photographyThis is adorable Will! I photographed him as a newborn (newborn session here) and I just can’t believe he’s already almost one year old! He is such a smiley guy and I just can’t stand his cuteness! We decided to do his Sudbury one year old session at the beautiful, picturesque Wayside Inn. The colorful fall leaves were at their peak and the late afternoon light was delicious and absolutely perfect for this sweet family session!

Newton Newborn Session:: Lizzy

Newton newborn baby photography

Lizzy is the smiliest newborn baby I’ve ever met! She was four weeks old at her session and such a sweetheart! She was so interested in the camera and literally followed the camera around with her beautiful eyes the entire time…until she fell asleep! Her parents and grandmother are just as lovely as Lizzy too. A session from heaven in my eyes! They came into my studio in Newton for Lizzy’s newborn session.

Here she is wide awake and curiously looking into my lens!

Yawn! Starting to get a little sleepy…sleepy baby

She was tough to get to sleep. She wasn’t really into the idea and was much more interested in staring at the camera but after she nursed with mom for a bit, she was out like a light for the rest of the session!

Lizzy’s newborn session was back in the fall. When Lizzy and her family arrived at the studio, I was in the middle up picking up freshly fallen autumn leaves to use for this image!

During all my Newton newborn sessions, and also at the in-home lifestyle sessions, I make sure to get some family photos and some of each parent holding their new baby. I love how sweet this photo is of father and daughter connecting.

6 month old session :: baby Avery

Newton baby photographer

I was excited to meet this family for their son’s 6 month old session and they were just awesome! Plus, I love photographing babies at this age. 6 months old is the absolute best because they are so happy and social at this age, some are even sitting up on their own! And parents are usually pretty excited at all the new milestones their child has met and want to document them! I’ve also decided that this kid is the happiest baby there ever was. I’m not kidding, this sweet, six month old baby was just smiles throughout his ENTIRE session. Which of course, made my job super easy! He is also so stinkin’ cute which helped too!

East Bridgewater Newborn Photography Session :: Benson

Newton Newborn Photography

I had the pleasure of traveling to East Bridgewater to photograph this beautiful newborn baby boy, Benson! Unfortunately the traveling occurred the morning after a bunch of snow (like every single week this past winter) which made it a slower but very pretty drive. It was worth every minute on the road once I met this little cutie! Oh my, he is absolutely adorable!

Newton Newborn Photography :: William

 

Newton Newborn Photography

You are going to LOVE this little guy! He is such an alert baby with the most beautiful eyes! Plus he has a couple of pretty awesome parents.

Natural Newborn Photos Newton

Baby photography NewtonMother baby photos are so special. A lot of moms (me being one of them) are the ones taking the photos of their children and are rarely in the photos. But it’s so so important to be in some of these photos. Your children will want to see you in the photographs with them. Newborn images are, in my opinion, the most important of all since newborn babies change so much over the first few weeks of life. They will never be this tiny or sleepy again. This little guy doesn’t look so sleepy at the moment though, does he?

Father son pictures are special too!

Child portraits at Bird Park in Walpole

two brothers in Bird Park It has been a ridiculously long time since I’ve written a blog post. 2014 was a crazy busy year and when the craziness slowed down a little, instead of catching up on blog posts, I found myself either lazing around the house, shoveling way too much snow  (ugh!!) or cooking some pretty elaborate dinners! When you have a dauntingly long list of things to do, sometimes it’s better just to do nothing (said the biggest procrastinator in the world)!

I’m looking back over 2014 and will be posting some of my favorite sessions. These two boys are the sweetest and the shoot was so fun! They were both running around full speed! Then would stop to ask me to watch how high they could jump! Ha! I wish I had that much energy. young boy smiling little boy in sunny field

We found this beautiful little field on the edge of Bird Park and the light was just perfectly delicious!

It was easy to see that these brothers really love each other.

What a fun day this was! Looking at the beautiful surroundings in these images with not one speck of snow in sight is making today just…painful! Come on Spring…show yourself!! When I say this, I’m writing for every New Englander…we are beyond ready for you to arrive! Speaking of arrivals, this blog post is so late, that their new little sister, who was months from her due date at the time of this session, has now been born! She is an absolutely adorable baby and I will be posting her newborn session photos soon, so stay tuned for those!
