I’ve photographed the Schwartz family many times over the past few years and seeing them is always a highlight of the season! It’s been so much fun watching Miss Zoey grow and become a little person. She was the happiest little baby and now she’s a sweet and smiley 2 year old.
I met this fun family of 5 kids (yes 5) at the Grist Mill in Sudbury, MA to take their fall family photos and their enthusiasm was contagious! They range in age from 2-15 so you can imagine the mix of personalities!
If you caught my previous blog post about Style and Select you know how excited I am about family photo outfit creation. I put together a few style boards with inspiration for your next session! In order to use the service you do need an access code and your photographer has to be a paying member of the service.
I recently discovered the wonderful service that is Style & Select. It’s a website that allows you to coordinate outfits for family photos. You simply fill out the questionnaire about your family and it suggests clothing for you. You can mix and match and see how everything looks together. Best of all you can email your selections to yourself (your photographer also gets a copy) and purchase items right through the site.
My cousin, Amy, always picks out the best locations so I was excited when she suggested Lynch Park in Beverly, MA for their family photo session. The north shore park is right on the water with two beaches and a beautiful flower garden! The boys got to run all over the park and I loved spending some time with them.
The 3rd annual free photos for public safety families at Goddard Park in East Greenwich, RI was a great success! Kate Taylor of Polar Square Designs organizes the event and it remains my favorite event of the year. It's so wonderful to give these families photos of their officer in uniform and the kids are so fun fun to work with.
Here are some favorites from Finn's one year photo session at Wellesley College! They were referred to me by my cousin and we had so much fun wandering the Wellesley campus. Finn was such a sweetie and I love his light red hair and bright blue eyes!
It's always an honor when another photographer asks me to take photos for them! Michal is also a family photographer and we had so much fun at Arnold Arboretum. She knew exactly where to find good light and her kids were naturals in front of the camera!
I finally got to take photos at Wellesley College for my friend Andrea! She and her husband, Frank, are so in love with their little boy. He was awesome for his photos and let me carry him back to the car!
Sean & Lynsey had an intimate wedding at the Boston Public Garden. Their closest family watched as they read their handwritten vows to each other in front of the bridge. Lynsey's aunt officiated and it was clear how much she loves them both. After a few portraits in the park we went to Acorn Street in Beacon Hill. Even though it was still cold the flower boxes were full of beautiful blooms. Their families were so sweet and happy, they made for a perfect day!
My all time favorite roommate from college is have a baby! Naturally we had to return to UCONN to shoot their pregnancy announcement photos. It had just snowed the night before and Jonathan the school mascot looked especially handsome. We had to get a few shots in front of Gampel Pavilion, home of the incredible women & men's basketball team.
Happy proposal season! If it seems like everyone on Facebook is getting engaged that's because we are currently in prime proposal season. The joy & festivities of the holidays puts guys in the mood to get down on one knee. If you're thinking the time is right to ask the question, here are my top 7 tips for getting a yes.
I cannot believe I've never shot in Beacon Hill before, Acorn Street is the perfect place for Christmas photos! I love the old historic parts of Boston, and it's close to the Boston Public Garden too. Marcus & Katie nailed their Christmas mini session!
Another wonderful family photography session at Wellesley College! The photos of Miss O hugging her parents are my favorite <3 I love how versatile Wellesley College is for photo sessions, there are so many different locations and backdrops I can’t wait to try out!
Baby O had his one year photos and cake smash at Wellesley College a few weeks ago. He wasn't so sure about the family photo part but once the cake came out he started DANCING in his seat! I've never seen a baby so excited about cake but I can definitely relate to him!
This wonderful family nailed the outfit game at their Wellesley family photo session! Even Cujo the dog participated, he was quite enthusiastic about family photos! I love how quick and easy mini sessions are for my clients. They're a low stress way to get updated family photos and the kids have fun with it too.
When planning a photo session, 99% of the time it's the mom's that reach out to me. So I was pleasantly surprised when Jeff contacted me to schedule a photo shoot! We planned to shoot at Wellesley College and luckily we still had some beautiful foliage.
I used to work with Gabe in the emergency room in Framingham so I was excited when he and his fiance Megan asked me to photograph their wedding next year! We did their engagement photos at Old Stone Church in West Boylston right when the foliage was at it's peak.
