You know this family by now, if you’ve been following my blog for any length of time. Their wedding was my first wedding ever, and I’ve since seen them many more times to photograph their family as it grows. We were meeting for this session to commemorate their newest daughter turning one! I’m a fan of outdoor family photos, so we waited until we had a beautiful morning for them. We began their session initially at their home to do some photos in Colette’s room, which you may remember from her newborn or six month photos. (My daughter was watching me plan this blog post, and hasn’t stopped asking for the hearts on Colette’s wall for her own room!) Once we did that, we headed outside to enjoy the pretty light and warm weather. We walked around a bit and let the girls play and explore – something you’ve heard from me before also. I love letting little kids’ personalities come through in photos, and find the best way to achieve that is to let them do what they’re interested in. So we looked for rocks, threw some leaves at each other, and practiced our animal noises.

Below are just a few of my favorites from their outdoor family session, enjoy!

Oh, this senior session. The one I’ve looked back on hundreds of times, and thought “I can’t WAIT to blog this, I have to get to it asap”. And then, life. Now it’s May. And one of my favorite sessions ever has been stuck on my computer since last August. Granted, we sold/bought homes like the week after I shot this, but still. No excuse. Now that it’s springtime, and sweet Julia is about to graduate, I HAVE to share these. I can’t wait for you to see them. Julia is just a beautiful person. She’s lovely. She carries on long conversations with old moms of young kids when she doesn’t have to, and humors me and all of my lame jokes and questions about high school. She carries herself with such grace, and there is no way I was even a tenth as mature as she is when I was in high school.

When we were discussing her session initially, I told Julia I wanted to go somewhere that was important to her for photos. We decided on a local spot that she (and I, but not at the same time) has been to a million times. Forest, water, cool fallen trees to balance on – I love it here. She also showed me some of the amazing places I hadn’t ventured to yet, and yes, I ran from a lot of flying bugs. She’s tougher than I am too. We also decided sunset would be perfect, and we headed to another new favorite spot of mine to capture the sunset. The sun decided to hide behind the clouds, but the soft, diffused light was just as beautiful with all of the summer flowers.

Below are just some of my favorites from Julia’s senior session, I hope you enjoy them. And Julia, you’re one of a kind. Thank you for being wonderful!

I love home newborn sessions. Probably a good thing, seeing as I don’t work in a studio! I just love meeting families at their home, and getting a true sense of their style and lifestyle. It’s also especially important for me with newborn sessions, so mom is as comfortable as possible. I warn my clients that I will probably be moving things around in their home, decluttering, and setting a simple stage for their photos – I promise I put it all back. 🙂 I met this lovely family at their home in Boston last year (I know, I know. There are still so many more…), and met the sweetest addition to their family, baby Oliver. He slept through most of our session, even when we braved the November chill outside. We included their fabulously patient family dog in photos also, which I also love. Wait until you see those photos! Some of my favorites. Below are a few of my favorites, enjoy!

This little munchkin turns one this week, and I can’t even believe it. One! Already! I say the same about my own kids, so I don’t know why I’m surprised every time I turn around and they’re older. My buddy K here unfortunately lives many thousands of miles away from me, so I don’t get to see her or her parents nearly as much as I’d like. Not yet anyway. I’m still working on my master plan to move to the west coast without anyone around here noticing. I can commute back and forth, yes?

I was lucky enough to get to see K twice last year. When I made my plans to visit this past February, the only thing I planned on/asked for while I was there was to go make some beach photos with K and her parents. I rarely get to even be at the beach, never mind bring a camera there at sunset with some of my favorite people. So we set out about an hour and a half before my little camera app told me sunset would be happening, to see what we could do. I usually do 2 hours before sunset here, but count on less time for little kids and shorter attention spans. Plus, sun setting over the water means crazy beautiful skies once the sun is gone, with still decent ambient light. Below are some of my favorites…it was so difficult narrowing this down. I could have posted all of their beach photos easily. I’m weak for that west coast light!

I met up with this sweet family way too long ago to admit to, on an overcast (and super windy!) day for their family photos. The lush green backgrounds in their photos have me so excited for spring and the months ahead. I’m over all of the bare trees and brown grass, let’s go buds and leaves! They had recently added another little boy to their lovely family, and big brother was so attentive and sweet with him. We walked a shorter loop around one of my favorite locations, taking some time out for hide and seek and chase. It’s always great to give little kids a break from the camera to just be kids – some of my favorite images are often created during those times. Below are a few of my favorite images from their morning photo session.
