Holly Cow - I won. THANK YOU so much everyone! I'm so honored and proud to be this years winner of the Best Photographer!  I am lucky to work with so many wonderful families! 

Family Portraits on the North Shore of Boston

Beautiful, fun session today with these lovely ladies. 7,9 & 11... close to my heart as I was one of 3 girls (i was in the middle). They were so sweet and so happy to run around, jump off rocks and generally listen to their mother (and me). It resulted in a great session with loads of wonderful images that I'm sure mom will look back on for YEARS to come!

Family portraits north of BOSTON

LOVE this shot... we were supposed to have an outdoor session with this gang but the weather wasn't cooperating. I do love having a studio so we don't have to put things off. Mom really wanted this shot - the boys without shirts and baby girl being adored.  The boys were great and baby girl was having a blast dancing to the music we had playing. What a fun family to work with!!

Here are a few cuties from the last few sessions. Once again I find that I'm so caught up in sessions that I don't have time to blog!  Anyway, newborns are becoming so much more fun these days!
These two little ones slept right away and let us play and do all sorts of great things!!
I wasn't sure about getting the purple backdrop but it seems to be very popular!!

Newborn portraits on the North Shore of Boston

OMG how adorable is THIS???  Myles is 7 days old BUT was born weighing in at almost 10 lbs - the little champ!  He was also 2 weeks late so we were a bit afraid he wouldn't do all the newborn things he was supposed to.... like SLEEP!  He did poo a lot ;-) but that's okay because after a lot to eat and a lot of mom and dad love he finally drifted off to sleep and we were able to get some wonderful images to celebrate his new life!!

Maternity Portraits on the North Shore and in Boston

As you all know - maternity is one of my FAV things to photography.. I love the sensual nature of the portraits and the glow the women have. Melissa was a wonderful client today!

children's portraits in Boston and on the North Shore

Ayla - my muse. I've been photographing her since she was in her mom's tummy. Last year her image won the international print competition.  She is always a joy to photography and this year it got more fun.  At 4, she is spunkier than ever!

maternity portraits on the North Shore

One of the most fun things about shooting maternity is the opportunity to experiment.  I'm starting to work with fans and fabric and am so fortunate that the type of women I have coming to the studio are adventurous, open, creative and fun.

Newborn Portraits in Boston and on the North Shore

Ahhhhhh isn't Dominic adorable?  When is mom called me to schedule he was already 10 days old and I was a bit worried... 15 days at our session?? hmmmmm. I try to do all newborn sessions between 5 - 10 days. This is the best time for a newborn session - they've figured out how to nurse but haven't started cluster feeding yet so they are perfect for sleeping!  How would Dominic be? Would we be able to get him to sleep? Would he be super fussy? Would this end up a marathon 4 hour session?   Questions, yes, concerns, no. 

Well, he was a dream. He did take a while to fall asleep but we got there in the end - mom and dad called me a baby whisperer ;-)    That's a nice compliment.  The session was just shy of 2 hours and we got some amazing images. I'm so happy to work with just wonderful people. Newborn sessions are always special.

I hear some people talk about choosing a photographer because they are willing to travel, or they are will give them a 4 hour session. Spector Photographer will always travel to where ever you are and if 4 hours is needed then 4 hours is needed. Those should be givens with any photographer. I have two things to say about this however. First, if a photographer NEEDS 4 hours for a newborn session then maybe they aren't as skilled or experienced in handling newborns. Second, I am very happy to come to the home of a family but I do try to explain the advantages of being in the studio where there is a controlled environment for heat and light, lots of backdrops, baskets, wraps etc...   That said choosing your photographer is SO VERY important. You need to be comfortable with them and happy with results. I hope I give you all this and more!
