This little girls first birthday was around the corner and grandmother thought it would be nice to surprise mom and dad with a portrait. I love the simplicity of the white backdrop and adorable sunflower hat. Her eyes say it all in this first photograph.
Here is a session I did in early spring. Winter is much longer here in Boston but you can still manage to get some artistic portraits during an outdoor session. I love the warmth of the colors in this portrait of this grandmother with her daughter and two granddaughters. I think it is so important to document the generations of family. We headed inside to the studio to capture a few more images.
I photographed this family for their Fresh 48 Session. A few days later we brought them into the studio to photograph the newborn session. I just love how big brother holds his baby sister so gently. Dad is from Texas so we tried to incorporate his cowboy boots into the newborn session. I don’t normally allow dogs but I have been photographing this family for a while now and have gotten to know Enzo very well. I think he did a pretty good job posing for the camera.
This adorable little girl just had celebrated her first birthday this weekend! Mom was planning an amazing party and wanted to use the images of cake smash session to help decorate for the party. We did a similar set up for big sister when she first turned one. We asked her to join in for a few cute sibling portraits. I just love how her blue eyes pop against the pink icing and backdrop! We started the session with some beautiful light and airy portraits of mom and grandma and then focused on the girls.
Mom and dad wanted to document their baby girls first christening with a portrait of her in this beautiful white dress. I thought it would be nice to add some pop of color with this red and yellow tulips. Big brother also came along to get some sibling photographs. It’s hard to believe a couple of years ago we took his first christening portrait. Now he is old enough to show off some of his dance moves!
I had the pleasure of photographing one of my clients in the hospital after she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. This type of photography is more of a documentary style and captures the candid moments. It’s called a “Fresh 48” session. Such precious moments, especially when big brother arrived to meet his baby sister for the first time. He brought her a birthday present and he even sang happy birthday to her! I documented him holding her for the first time. I wish I had known about Fresh 48 sessions when we were pregnant. These images taken in the hospital will always bring this family back to the special day when their baby girl was born. You can schedule me to come to the hospital within the first 48 hours of the baby being born. This will be an add-on option for my newborn clients.
This little girl is celebrating her first birthday. Her mother wanted an enchanted whimsical theme for her portrait session. She came with a variety of beautiful tutus and wings and we provided the magic! We added some sparkles which completes the fairy tale effect. We also enjoyed taking some portraits with her favorite stuffed animal. Towards the end we captured some candid portraits of mom and her playing a game of tickle. A lot of families like to do a cake smash for their child’s first year portrait session but it is not necessary.
Maternity sessions are a wonderful way to capture the beauty of life and pregnancy. Some people like to do them outdoors and others in the studio. February can be a tricky time to do a maternity session outdoors especially living in Boston. We deiced to do a studio session and went with a light and airy feel with the high key portraits of moms belly. I was so happy that she brought her son to the photography session. He really enjoyed playing with his hot wheel cars on mom’s tummy! It made for the perfect hill… A moment I am sure they will look back on and laugh. I just photographed this families Fresh 48 session in Beverly hospital. We wanted to capture brother meeting his sister for the first time. I am looking forward to having them back in the studio for their newborn session later this week!
