Phew! I am way behind on previews, but thankfully my editors here have been helping me out of the weeds! We have so many exciting things to share with you all in the coming months! In the meantime, here are just a few of the adorable babies we have been photographing lately. Last week baby M came to visit the studio. I think it was the busiest day we’ve had in a while. Baby M has two adorable older siblings (ages 3 and 22 months) and mom brought along two fabulous ladies to help with the three kids. We also had people popping into the studio (which is unusual for us) so I felt a little like my head was spinning as we started. Baby M was wide awake in the beginning of our shoot so I had Shaun push back our next session so that we could relax and have a little extra time to get the perfect shots. We managed a quick couple of shots with the older children before they headed out for lunch and then finally things all settled and mom and I got to enjoy playing with a finally-very-sleepy baby M. Once he was out he was quite the little poser! Sometimes you just need that extra half hour to make everything come together! Baby M turned out to be absolutely dreamy to photograph! It was wonderful meeting you P family, thank you for choosing us to capture this special time for you!
This little man and his family traveled all the way up from New Jersey for their newborn portraits last week. We have had many families travel up from New York and New Jersey for their newborn portraits this summer and each time I’m unsure of what to expect after baby sleeps for the long ride. It seems that each time I am pleasantly surprised and baby I was no different! Infact, baby I’s session ended up with DOUBLE the images I normally take during a newborn session. He was so sleepy and easy to pose. He rocked one set after another. I can’t wait to show you them all mom and dad. Thanks for making the trip up so we could capture this special time for you !
This little angel was such a joy to photograph! She was sweet and sleepy and had the most perfect little doll face. I traveled on location for this session and we took all of these photos right in her family’s living room. Clearly C is a little model already! By the end I didn’t want to stop photographing her because she was posing so perfectly. She even gave me a few smiles! These are just a few of my favorites. This is going to be one giant gallery! Can’t wait to show you the rest mom and dad!
It was only a few weeks ago that I met J and B for their maternity session and they were already back to the studio again this week with their new bundle of joy! Baby L was so much fun to photograph. He was the perfect poser because he loved his hands spread out under his face. He rocked every pose we tried and we were done in record time. Enjoy your preview J and B. Can’t wait to show you the rest!
This summer we ran 2 sunset mini-session specials and Monday night was the last of the two. Apparently I didn’t reference the calendar when planning the mini sessions and this past Monday was actually a FREE beach day! The beach was pretty packed when we started, but I know just where to hike to avoid the crowds (to some degree at least). Of course by sunset things were calm except for the child who ran by and STOLE my flip flops! Other than losing my favorite pair of Havaianas, the night went off without a hitch. Thank you to the many gorgeous families that came out on a very hot evening. Our next session specials are this fall’s Holiday Portrait Sessions and there are only a few spots left.
Here are just a few favorites! Until next summer :0( enjoy your previews!
This sweet baby boy came to visit us Monday morning and I had so much fun with his family. He gave us a nice sleepy period on the bean bag but by the end of the session, he wanted to be awake for the action! Luckily I had some extra binkies on hand. We were able to get some great shots even when he was awake because he always gave us a few moments in a pose before he wanted his pacifier back! The portrait with daddy is one of my new favorites and he was actually awake for that. We had something completely different in mind but I wasn’t about to try it with baby awake. Instead we opted for this shot and I’m so glad we did. Enjoy your preview N family. Can’t wait to show you the rest!
D came to the studio with her family this past winter for portraits of her two boys. Like many of my 2009 clients, I soon heard back from her with some good news. They were expecting again! This time D came down to the studio for some maternity portraits. Our summer was already jam packed so we couldn’t get her in until one week before her due date. We were nervous she wouldn’t make it for the session, but she did, and she looked amazing!! Can you believe she only has one week left?? I can’t wait to hear the good news soon!
This week I had a great time photographing the adorable A family. 2 year old M was so grown up and well behaved and 8 month old R couldn’t have been more adorable! We started at the studio for some classic portraits and then headed outdoors for some more creative shots. The boys were so easy the whole time! If only I could get smiles like that out of my two year old! Enjoy your preview A family. It was a pleasure!
Last night was the first of the two beach mini sessions we are holding this summer and I had so much fun! The weather was perfection and while I love our studio for newborn work, I adore getting outdoors for just about every other type of portrait. And sunset is absolutely the best time of day to shoot! If I didn’t have a 2 year old, I’d be booking sunset sessions every night I could! The night started with C’s senior portrait session. She’s a senior at Sutton High School in Massachusetts, a fantastic athlete, and as you can see, a gorgeous girl! She was up for anything and her friend even helped hold my reflector for me :0) Thanks N! I wish I had time to do more senior sessions because they really listen SO much better than toddlers! Enjoy your preview C
Next up was a family who I just recently had in for their newborn session. Adorable baby O is already 4 months old and they were ready for a session on the beach! I can’t believe how fast these babies are growing up around us! Baby O was so sweet and I loved having the chance to photograph her again and catch up with mom and dad. Because these were mini sessions, I was going to try to limit the previews to just one or two images, but even with just 30 minutes to shoot, I have too many favorites to choose!! Enjoy your preview!
Finally at sunset I wrapped up with an engagement session for a very fun couple. J and C will be getting married this winter in Mexico and I was thrilled to have the chance to do their engagement session on the beach. They were so easy going and playful, we have so many shots to choose from! Enjoy your preview!
