More Fall Mini Session Favorites

Natick Mini SessionsI hosted mini sessions last weekend at one of my favorite spots in Natick! When I scheduled mini sessions for the beginning of November it never occurred to me that the temperature could be below freezing, but it was! The families who came out were all troopers, and made the best of the cold by bundling up in cute hats and jackets and making sure to get in extra family snuggles to keep warm. Thanks to all who braved the cold for making my last mini sessions of the year so enjoyable!Natick Mini Sessions Natick Fall Mini Sessions Needham Mini Sessions Wellesley Mini Sessions Sudbury Mini Sessions Newton Mini Sessions Weston Mini Sessions Dover Mini Sessions Waltham Mini Sessions Wayland Mini Sessions Sherborn Mini Sessions Boston Mini Sessions Metrowest Mini Sessions Brookline Mini Sessions Belmont Mini Sessions Framingham Mini Sessions Ashland Mini Sessions Massachusetts Mini Sessions

Spectrum Inspired Photo Session

Spectrum Inspired Photo Session

I had the most amazing time photographing this Spectrum Inspired session last week in Newton. When Emmett’s mother applied for a session, she emphasized that she wanted the photos to be about the entire family.  They are all so loving and connected, and I hope that they will treasure these images of them together doing what they love to do.

We hung out at one of Emmett’s favorite spots in the woods where he likes to collect and toss rocks. Spectrum Inspired Photo Session Spectrum Inspired Photo Session MassachusettsEmmett likes the feeling of the sand on his hands but not on his feet.

Engaging with the camera can feel like too much, the photo shoot isn’t part of the daily routine, and the sensory demands of the situation can lead to overload. I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to volunteer for Spectrum Inspired – their mission to document these children and families as they truly are, without the pressure of engaging with the photographer for traditional portraits, is beyond important. It was a gift to meet and document this beautiful family, and I hope these photos will be a gift to them.Family Portraits Autism Wellesley

Natick Family Session

Natick Family Portrait I met up with this lovely family at their home in Natick (which happens to be a few houses down from mine – I love a quick commute!) to take their portraits last week! I did a mixture of documentary and portrait photography, and think the images tell the story of this family where they are right now. Their daughter Nora is a bundle of happy enthusiasm and loved having her photo taken! Her newborn sister Lia is the cutest and smiles when her mother talks to her. I had a great time with them, and hope you enjoy looking through the photos!Natick Family Portrait Family Portrait Photographer Natick Family Portrait Photographer Newton Family Portrait Photographer Boston Family Portrait Photographer Needham Family Portrait Photographer Wellesley Family Portrait Photographer Weston Family Portrait Photographer Sudbury Family Portrait Photographer Ashland Family Portrait Photographer Wayland Family Portrait Photographer Waltham Family Portrait Photographer Dover Family Portrait Photographer Sherborn Family Portrait Photographer Brookline Family Portrait Photographer Somerville Family Portrait Photographer Arlington Family Portrait Photographer Cambridge Family Portrait Photographer Dedham

Natick Family Session

Natick Family Photo Session I met up with this lovely family in Natick this week for a portrait session. It was so fun to see them again after initially meeting them for a documentary session at their home!  I love catching up with my clients year after year, and seeing how much their kids have grown.

Many thanks to them for generously upgrading their mini session to a full session. Half of their session fee was donated to Love 4 Puerto Rico, a grassroots organization that is transporting medicine, humanitarian supplies, and physicians down to Puerto Rico. I will be donating half of all fees from full-priced sessions that take place during the month of October to this organization. Please reach out if you’d like to schedule a session and support relief efforts. Thank you!Natick Family Photo Session Family Portrait Photographer Newton Family Portrait Photographer Boston Family Portrait Photographer Needham Family Portrait Photographer Wellesley Family Portrait Photographer Weston Family Portrait Photographer Sudbury Family Portrait Photographer Wayland Family Portrait Photographer Waltham Family Portrait Photographer Cambridge Family Portrait Photographer Arlington Family Portrait Photographer Somerville Family Portrait Photographer Sherborn Family Portrait Photographer Dover

Fall Mini Session Favorites

Natick Mini SessionsThe first of my fall mini sessions were last weekend and they were amazing! I met up with families in Natick for 20 minute sessions. I photographed some familiar faces, as well as some new ones! The kids loved exploring the trails, investigating sticks and leaves, and some even wore costumes! I had the best time, and can’t wait for more mini sessions this year. I hope you enjoy this set of my favorite images from the day!

Natick Family Session

Documentary Family Photographer Natick I just loved photographing Eleanor and Catherine again! I’ve visited their home a few times for sessions, and it’s always a treat! As a mother of a boy I really enjoy watching the lives of girls unfold, and these two girls are two of my favorites. When I arrived at their house, Eleanor and Catherine were still in their pajamas, just hanging out and playing in their living room.

Wellesley Family Session

170429_Keppeler_11I had the pleasure of hosting mini sessions last weekend on the campus of Wellesley College. It was a great event, full of beautiful weather and smiling faces! I thought I’d post some of my favorite images from a single twenty minute session so you can get a sense of what mini sessions are like. This was a happy family of five with three fun sisters who enjoyed exploring the area I chose on campus. They hung out on the stairs, jumped down them, sat in the grass, and climbed up a hill. Some images I posed, and some images were taken with the girls leading the way. Their parents even joined in to get some nice family photos. I had a great time with each family I photographed, and am super happy that I decided to start offering mini sessions. I’m hoping to hold more sessions like this in the fall – I hope to see you and your family there!170429_Keppeler_16 170429_Keppeler_14 170429_Keppeler_19 170429_Keppeler_02170429_Keppeler_17 170429_Keppeler_36 170429_Keppeler_20 170429_Keppeler_31 170429_Keppeler_35 170429_Keppeler_28 170429_Keppeler_38170429_Keppeler_57 170429_Keppeler_46 170429_Keppeler_40 170429_Keppeler_52 170429_Keppeler_43170429_Keppeler_53
