Last weekend I was lucky enough to photograph the wonderful B Family. Mom wanted a rustic country barn-feel to the session so we headed out to the Myrick Center. It was super cold that day, but in-between running for jackets and warm hugs, we managed to get some incredible shots. I really could have photographed them all day because they were so easy to work with and fabulous! I had a hard time narrowing down which images to put up here because I love them all. I know the mom is keeping these pictures a surprise for the holiday, but I hope she loves them all too!
Last Sunday I had the pleasure of walking around Longwood Gardens and photographing yet another lovely family. The two little boys, Connor and Evan, are adorable and look at their fabulous outfits! Mom sure knows how to coordinate clothes!! I love these colors! Connor definitely kept me on my toes and loved climbing and playing hide and seek in the trees.
This past weekend I had the pleasure of photographing another lovely family. I had talked with the mother, Betsy, a couple months prior and discussed setting up a time for a family session but she was a bit busy prepping for her younger sister's beautiful wedding. Once she had a plan, we settled on a late October session, after the wedding, and it turned out to be the perfect time! The colors are gorgeous now and it was still warm enough out not to worry about too many layers. We met at a nearby park where, as you can see, the beautiful colors just reflected off the water and it made for some great pictures. The morning light was so soft and warm also. Little Evelyn and Vivian, and of course their parents, were so great and fun to work with! Evelyn, being 2 (almost 3!), certainly kept me on my toes! And poor Vivian was just getting her first teeth in, so she didn't want to be away from mom. (You can read all about it on mom's fun-to-read blog: How to Succeed In Parenting Without Really Trying). But, because it's my job, we still managed some awesome family photos!
There's a reason why it's called the golden hour, just look at this gorgeous sun! I love shooting in the mornings when the sun is just coming up or in the evenings when it is just going down. No harsh shadows, just beautiful golden light. Add in 3 adorable boys and their fabulous parents, and it makes for one perfect photo shoot! Jamie and Sean may have their hands full with 3 energetic, yet sweet and adorable boys, but they were great during our session and so much fun! I'm sure these will be portraits their family will treasure for years to come.
Despite Saturday being cold, this family warmed my heart. Little Nora, who I photographed as a newborn, and her older brother are simply sweet and adorable! I visited them in their neck of the woods at Krupp Park. There was a little creek, a bridge, and some walking paths, just enough perfect spots to get in some perfect fall family portraits!
On Monday I had little Emily to my studio for her (almost!) 4 month old milestone session, the age of finding hands and tummy time mini push-ups. She was nice enough to bring her older siblings and mom along too! Being the third child, mom wanted to do something special just for her, so Emily is now on my Watch Me Grow plan. She didn't make the newborn session, so we modified it. Emily is such an adorable chunk! She was already trying to get herself into the sitting position when I had her on her back, a clear indication that she ready to keep up with her older sister and brother!
After Saturday's wonderful time at Longwood, I was twice blessed with another fabulous family and session there again on Sunday. This time, with 2 year old Carter and his parents. I have been wanting to take pictures in the field there for a while and was so happy when they were up for it. The colors they wore coordinated so well and the morning sun was just at the right spot. Little Carter is absolutely adorable. He may not have liked the camera, but I still managed to get some looks and smiles! And, the truck book I brought plus the blue lollipop mom had were just what he needed! Gotta be prepared with kids!
Blake isn't always very willing to get in front of the camera. In fact, he usually just runs away. But, thankfully all I had to do was tell him we were going outside to "play" and he could have a lollipop, and he sat still long enough to let me take his picture. I loved every minute of it! He has the most stunning blue eyes, which really sparkle in the sun. These are some pictures I took in our backyard on the 4th of July. It's no Longwood Gardens, but it's great for outdoor pictures with its ivy, archways, stone walls, and plethora of greenery.
