Wayland Newborn Session

Newborn Photography Wayland

It was an absolute thrill to meet little Calliope at her home in Wayland this weekend. Her parents are Shannon & Jim, and I photographed their engagement session at their home a few years back. It was great to see them, and so fun to see their house again, now home to a new baby!Newborn Photography Wayland Documentary Family Photographer MA Documentary Family Photographer MassachusettsShannon & Jim are amazing parents. You can tell by the way Callie looks at them with such love in her eyes.Documentary Family Photographer Metrowest Documentary Family Photographer Natick Documentary Family Photographer NewtonIt was a big day for the family! Callie was given the go-ahead from her doctor to try rice cereal, so she tried it for the first time while I was there to document it!Documentary Family Photographer Boston Documentary Family Photographer Needham Documentary Family Photographer Wellesley Documentary Family Photographer Weston Documentary Family Photographer WaylandAt first she wasn’t so sure about it, but eventually she decided that she liked the spoon, and then the cereal! I love these photos of the family because they really bring me back to being a first time parent and how exciting every single thing was! I remember my son trying solids for the first time and how we watched in anticipation to see what he thought! And I remember the look of pure happiness on his face that accompanied his first bite, and how he just couldn’t get enough.Documentary Family Photographer SudburyI did, however, forget about the messy faces. I have to admit I’m happy to be beyond that phase!Documentary Family Photographer Waltham Documentary Family Photographer Cambridge Documentary Family Photographer Arlington Documentary Family Photographer SomervilleCallie skipped her nap the morning of the session, so she was pretty sleepy while I was there.Documentary Family Photographer Brookline Documentary Family Photographer Sherborn Documentary Family Photographer Dover Family Portrait Photographer MAI’d forgotten about the glasses-grabbing phase as well, which luckily for me was short-lived!Family Portrait Photographer Massachusetts Family Portrait Photographer Metrowest Family Portrait Photographer Natick Family Portrait Photographer NewtonHow cute is she!!?Family Portrait Photographer BostonI love the look on Callie’s face in this photo.Family Portrait Photographer Needham Family Portrait Photographer WellesleyCallie likes to bounce with her parents.

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.

Boston Newborn Session

Documentary Newborn PhotoI visited with Margot for her documentary newborn session at her home in Boston when she was just seventeen days old! She is the most adorable and perfect little nugget. Her parents are past clients and it was so great to see them again, and to see how happy they are. Margot is a very lucky girl to have these two as parents!

Malden Family Session

I met up with the fabulous Fiona and her parents this past weekend for their documentary family session at their home in Malden.

Fiona turns ONE this week! She is the sweetest thing – she is super good natured, friendly, and does lots of cool things! She has perfected an amazing fish face, enjoys checking out that other baby in the mirror, and loves to play “Where’s Fiona?” She’s also determined to walk! I had a great time seeing her parents again (I photographed their wedding!), and am so glad I got to personally experience all of the cuteness that is Fiona!Documentary Family Photographer Malden Documentary Family Photographer Malden Documentary Family Photographer MA Documentary Family Photographer Massachusetts Documentary Family Photographer Metrowest Documentary Family Photographer Natick Documentary Family Photographer Newton Documentary Family Photographer Boston Documentary Family Photographer Needham Documentary Family Photographer Wellesley Documentary Family Photographer Weston Documentary Family Photographer WaylandDocumentary Family Photographer Ashland Documentary Family Photographer Worcester Documentary Family Photographer Waltham Documentary Family Photographer Cambridge Documentary Family Photographer Arlington Documentary Family Photographer Somerville Documentary Family Photographer Brookline Documentary Family Photographer Sherborn Documentary Family Photographer Dover Documentary Family Photographer Dedham Family Portrait Photographer Metrowest 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 Wayland Family Portrait Photographer Sherborn

Favorite Moments From 2016

In reflecting on 2016, I can say with certainty that the work highlight for me was having clients be open to documentary family sessions. I’d been thinking about doing this for a while, but could never quite find the focus or time to start a new branch of my business. My resolution for the year was to make it happen, and I’m so happy that it did!

Documentary Family SessionsThis type of photography is a rebellion against the current climate of displaying curated family photos on social media. It’s a celebration of the day to day moments that make up childhood. It highlights relationships and connections. It reminds parents that they love and work hard. It encourages them to think about the big picture – raising happy kids. All of the kids I visited were happy. They were delightful, sweet, giving, and fun.

I didn’t know that my work could make me feel so happy. I didn’t know that my heart could feel so full. Being welcomed into these families has been an honor and a privilege, and I am beyond thankful that they let me into their homes and their lives. I’m proud of the work I did, and humbled by the connections I made.

And with that I give you some my favorite moments from 2016!

Waltham Family Session

This lovely family moved into their new home in Arlington this week. Before they did, and while they were in the midst of packing, they asked me to come to their house in Waltham to take family photos of them before they moved. I thought it was a great idea, and was very honored to be given the task of documenting Clara & Ellie’s first home for them. Waltham Family PhotoWe took some photos in the back yard first.
