Quick Family Shoot

On a cold, but bright December day we did a quick Christmas card shoot in Boston Garden. B wasn’t feeling the cold, but was such a trooper! He is going to be a great big brother!

Wedding Joy!

On a very warm Saturday in July, I had the privilege of shooting a gorgeous wedding in Dorchester. I learned so much about Vietnamese wedding traditions and got to witness so much joy. It was so tough to pick my favorite photos from this lovely day! Congratulations, Anh and Hoa!

Dear Family

Thankfully this year it was not as bitterly cold as our shoot last fall! I always love this annual photo shoot with this wonderful family! How hilarious is C? I could not stop cracking up as I took her photo!

Beautiful Wedding.

I grew up babysitting E and her sisters through high school and college and was so excited when she contacted me to shoot her wedding. I can’t fully express what a sweet and beautiful day this was. L and E’s love, joy, and kindness were apparent in every moment!

An Afternoon at the Acton Discovery Museum

Even though I lived 5 minutes away from this museum for many years, I had never been. They have expanded over the past few years and I had a great time exploring the inside and outside the museum with this sweet family. It has been so much fun to see how much these little guys have grown between photoshoots.

I had trouble picking photos from our style shoot, so I included a bunch below. We had a fun afternoon highlighting the many facets of Lainey's businesses!

End of the Season Shoot

I'm a teacher and a photographer, so my free hours to update this blog are limited.  Christmas Break is the perfect time to catch up on 9 months of photo shoots! Here are some of my favorites.

We'll start with the H family.  This is our 6th year of family photos in November. (Check out how this sweet family has grown over the years here, here, and here.)  This year, our "fall" photo shoot felt a bit more wintery, but the girls were such great sports even on this very chilly day! I'm looking forward to year 7 :-)!

A Visit to Boston

 I've worked with M before, and love how she is so thoughtful about planning and capturing special moments (see here). So when she told me her mom was in town for an extended visit, we both agreed a mother-daughter photo shoot was in order. We had a great time wandering and exploring the Boston Common, and the connection and sense of fun these two share was so evident.   

Happy First Birthday!

It's been a year of Baby B!  This boy has grown so much before our eyes, and he has a large community of aunties and uncles to love and celebrate him this year (see here for a throwback). He's certainly the most adorable #squadbaby of all! It was a wonderful wild rumpus of a party!

Fall

One of the joys of being a photographer is that my work becomes a chance to connect with more and more friends and neighbors, as each client brings me into their extended family.  This family is no exception.  I met D and K while shooting D's sister's wedding, just a few short months before J's impending arrival was announced. It was great to spend part of a glorious fall afternoon with them running, playing, and highlighting Mr. J's personality.
