Why You hire a PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER for your FAMILY PORTRAITS


The top picture is out of the camera - the one below is edited.  Sometimes people seem to question the reason to pay for the service of a professional photographer. I hope this helps answer some of those questions.

Child Portraits on the North Shore



The session was supposed to be outside.. or at least that was my understanding but the morning was cold and mom and dad had only outfits for inside so inside it was.  Olivia, my little muse, was a wonderful as ever (even running up to hug me when she got out of the car). This year I have a small collection of dresses and she fell in love with the ruffled rose one so we just had to do some of the session in it.  I LOVE the studio... less than and hour and so many different looks!

Family Portraits in Weston




This beautiful family is one of my very first families... Miss Elina was just 10 days old when I started photographing her. I feel like I've grown up with her and her little brother. Each session, through the years, was different. I watched Elina go from a shy little toddler who only wanted mommy to a beautiful young lady who is a joy to photograph and know.  I am blessed to work with such great people.

Fall Family Portraits in Boston and The North Shore



Fall, with it's spectacular colors is an ideal time to hold a session... even in a little rain (as this session was) the season lends it's self to fun outfits and natural props like leaves!!!  the rain did eventually get the best of us at this session so we headed into the studio for a few extra portraits!

NEWBORN CHILD WORK SHOP!




These past two days I've been in NYC at a workshop run by Amy Pearsall McDaniel of Dew Drops and  Sandra Bianco of Sandra Bianco Photography. Both women who are very talented in their fields and had a lot to teach. We spent two days working with newborns - lighting, wrapping, soothing, propping up and also kids looking at styles, light and laughter.  It was a really great experience. I may have been doing this  a long time (9 years) but there is always something to learn!!!

Maternity Portraits on The North Shore



Lovely session this morning... this was take two for us. Her little boy just didn't want to leave her arms last time we tried so as we shot this time nanny was outside with him blowing bubbles. It all worked out great... just goes to show you things sometimes take a little more coordination than expected but it's worth it in the end!

Newborn portraits in Boston and the North Shore



oh boy have I been busy since I got back from vacation.. this little guy was just 7 days old and REALLY didn't want to sleep - we did manage to tire him out though and got some adorable images.
sooooooo cute!!!!!

SENIOR PORTRAITS in BOSTON AND THE NORTH SHORE


Hard to believe Katie still has a year of high school to go. She was so composed during our session.
It was great having the golden light from West Beach to set off that smile of hers. Senior portraits are so important not just for the kids but for the parents too... it marks an ending of one phase of life and the beginning of a new one.
