Beautiful Baby Portraits in Boston and the North Shore

" Thank you so much for today. It was amazing!  This was so special to me, something I've been waiting for and looking forward to for a long time. You were fantastic.  I can't wait to see the pictures! "

That's a quote from super happy mom after she saw this sneak peek from our session today. Baby Ava was amazing. She's 6 months old but the little puppet came a bit early and spent 84 days in the NICU.  Look how amazing she is now! Not a cry from her during the session - and she only pooped on mom once ;-) 

Sometimes things don't go as planned, sometimes our dreams take a little longer to be realized. I think it's wonderful that Amy and Jamie choose a portrait session to celebrate this amazing little girl's entry into the world!

Adorable baby portraits in Boston and the North Shore

" Wow Jacquie, I LOVE that picture!!  Thank you so much for being so great today - he is normally so shy around strangers and doesn't like taking pictures but something about your personality made him comfortable and happy today.  I can't wait to see the rest of the photos!  
So glad Caroline recommended you.  We will definitely be referring our friends too.  Thanks!!  Talk to you soon."

So this was mom's response when she got her Sneak Peek FB post.   LOVE it when my families are so happy. Such a great session - I LOVE this age, LOVE working on location in people's homes and LOVE adorable babies!!!

He's adorable!! Will was born 7 days ago and look how good big brother James is. I was really impressed with James. For a 3 year old he was perfect. He was gentle and cooperative and funny.
No wining, crying, or refusal to pose. It's not always this easy to get two little ones' to work together but I think these two are off to a good start!!

Professional Portriats on the North Shore and Boston

I love these shots of Kristin. She was so nervous when she arrived. She HATES having her picture taken! It was great though. Kristin brought samples of work she'd see of other professional portraits and wanted to make sure she didn't end up with something to 'corporate'. She wanted soft, sexy but approachable.  Not only was she beautiful to photography but she's a really nice and funny person too!!

If you are questioning your professional image but 'hate to be in front of the camera' RELAX!! It can be a fun and rewarding experience!

so, I just wanted to share Krisin's comments after see saw her portfolio:

" I am so impressed with these!  ...  How many do I get?  I’d like to have about 5 of these.  I am so impressed.  I HATE myself in pictures but you really captured some of me that I like. "

so, while I've been MIA I have been busy... I had the studio totally renovated!! It was amazing the transformation from a dark, low ceiling space that was clumsy to work in to this bright, big, open studio. A new window went in to create a natural light shoot area, the low ceiling is gone, back drops are hung on the wall so silly stands don't get in the way of little feet! I bought some beautiful antique doors and enclosed the bathroom! A bed now for babies (and boudoir but that's another posting). I'm SO excited to use this new space... it's a dream to work in!!


okay so I have a VERY GOOD excuse for not posting for SOOOOOOOO long. Blogger blocked me!
Not sure why but I haven't been able to get on until today. Very frustrating and I'm sorry but I'M BACK so yay!!  here is a little promotion I put together for all you mamas expecting soon....

Enjoy and HAPPY SPRING (I'm sure it's just around the corner!!)

  10 % off your session when you mention this post!

If you are considering investing in a professional portrait session but are not sure whether it's really 'worth' it. Please read the follow letter I received from a family of mine.... it may help you decide.

 When I think back on when Keiran was born, I regret not having purchased a Watch Me Grow package.  At that time, I figured we'd splurge on some nice photos once and that after that mall portrait studios would be fine.  Of course, that was until I saw how you captured Keiran and our family.  There is really no comparison.  When I saw those first proofs, OMG, I just stared at them for hours!  I remember, I had recently gone back to work, so I should have been busy, but I must have spent that entire week looking at those pictures over and over again.  I knew they were precious images that I'd want to be able to remember for the rest of my life.  When we placed our first order, I wondered if a photo book was really practical.  But I can't begin to count the times we've spent looking over those books.  They are well loved.  And don't even get me started on the wall portraits!!  They are my treasures!

Maternity Portraits in Boston and the North Shore

So I have a frustration I need to get out.... WHY WHY WHY do moms-to-be feel they are not attractive when they are expecting? I hear so many beautiful women say to me 'oh, I could never do that.. I look terrible right now?' REALLY?? are you sure?  I think maternity photography is amazing. I think the bodies and the bellies very sensual and the emotions are overwhelming. It is a perfect and magical time to create portraits - works of art that will stand as testimony to the 9 months you spent creating a life (your baby). Moms you are beautiful ... let me show you!

Here is what mom had to say after viewing her portfolio...

"Wow Jacquie! I have always felt that your pictures capture something I can't normally put into words and in so many of these I can see exactly what I'm feeling becoming a mom again. This pregnancy I feel so beautiful for what my body can do, confident, and connected to life in a different way. I feel fearless but anxious and of course a bit nervous but everyday proud to carry this little life. I love that I can look at your pictures and see my emotions reflected. Thank you so much for this photo shoot. It's hard to explain to people just how important becoming a mom is to me. More importantly, it's not always easy to remember everything I feel in the moment, right now. But, I have your pictures to show my babies for the rest of their lives. Your pictures tell a story of change and of love that I might not otherwise remember so clearly. 
Thank you,
