“I’m hoping I’ll inspire others to consider investing in professional photography. How much do we spend on things that hold no real long-term value? How many of us have limited time with people we love and never have pictures of our connection? Next time you consider what to give someone, give them time with a professional photographer. If you are in Boston proper, pick Cara. She has the natural calm, improvisational nature and vision needed to capture people.”

Maya, 12 days new | Dover Massachusetts Newborn Photographer

You might recognize this gorgeous couple from their maternity session I posted a couple of weeks ago. They were expecting their first baby and didn’t know if it would be a boy or a girl. I was convinced it was a boy, but sure enough, they had a beautiful baby girl.

Welcome to the world, Maya.

life and love | arnold arboretum family photographer

The twin boys in this family attend a preschool where I take school portraits and I was honored to photograph their family last summer at one of their favorite stomping grounds (and mine!), the Arnold Arboretum.

My husband has a fraternal twin brother, so I have a soft spot for parents with twin boys. One thing that never ceases to amaze me is just how different twin personalities can be, and these sweet little boys were no exception

Charlotte & Jack | Boston Massachusetts Newborn Photographer

Meet Charlotte and Jack.  You’d never know it by looking at them now, but they weighed just over 2 pounds when they were born at 27 weeks.  After a very long and emotional couple of months, they are both finally home with their Mom & Dad, and are tipping the scales at over 12 pounds each!

expecting their first | boston maternity photographer

No matter the season, there is always a gorgeous backdrop to be found at the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain, MA.  But probably one of the most popular times of year to visit is around Mother’s Day, when the lilacs are in bloom.   Lucky for this mom, she was 36 weeks pregnant in May and we were able to take advantage of the stunning flowers.  It was t his couple’s first baby and they didn’t know what they were having. I guessed it was a boy ( spoiler alert, I was wrong…!  Newborn session coming up on the blog next)

Top 16 of 2016 | Boston Family and Newborn Photographer

I’ve spent the last few days sorting through the thousands of images I’ve made over the past last 12 months in preparation for writing my annual “best of” blog series. It is never easy to choose just a handful of favorites because there are so many that I love. But is fun to sort back and relive every session and recognize the images that speak to me the most. And once I’ve made my choices, I love to see how my favorites look together and what themes arise in my work.

As I looked through this year, I noticed the ones I loved the most were

Back Bay Newborn love| Boston Baby Photographer

Before I became a photographer, I had this notion that I wanted to be a nurse. I have an old drawing I did when I was a little girl that says, “I want to be a nurse when I grew up so I can help people.” And after I became a mom, I thought quite seriously about pursuing a career as a labor & delivery or a postpartum nurse. Like many others, my experiences with the nurses before, during and after the delivery of my three children were, quite simply, amazing. These women play such an important role at a most vulnerable time in our lives. It feels like our birth stories aren’t complete without the mention of the wonderful nurses at our side throughout. For as long as I can remember, I have longed to have a career that was as fulfilling as being a nurse.

But I had to be honest with myself — I’m

The pictures are absolutely wonderful. What a gift you have! The composition of some of the photos is just amazing, too. You even managed to incorporate little details, like Rich’s art or flowers in the background, in such a tasteful and natural way. These photos are going to be just so wonderful to have.

-Anne & Rich, Roslindale
