Cara Soulia is an on location photographer based in Needham, Massachusetts. She specializes in capturing genuine, joyful & beautiful images of babies, children & their families in the Greater Boston area.

“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.”     ~ Sarah L. Newton, MA

Hanging with the Boys | dover massachusetts family photographer

When a mutual friend introduced me to this family’s mama, it was love at first sight. Earlier this year, I was at my friend’s annual Kentucky Derby party and this beautiful lady and I happened to have on the biggest (and best, if I do say so myself) hats at the party. It was destiny that we should meet! We started chatting and one thing led to another and the following weekend I was photographing her family at the Arboretum. We were lucky that the lilacs and a few other trees were still in bloom!

I’ll just sum it up by saying: sessions like this make me giddy. These images are what happens when

fall family | Boston Family Portraits

As summer is winding down, I am sorting through hundreds of images from last year and prepping for the busy season ahead.  I realized I never blogged a few awesome families from last fall, including this one!!

This family is a long time client and they are some of my very favorite people to photograph! We were so lucky to have perfect foliage for their session, which also happened to celebrate their son Sammy’s first birthday.

A fine summer evening | Boston Family Photographer

It was a picture perfect summer evening when I met up with this family of four at the one of my very favorite locations in Boston — the Arnold Arboretum. I can always count on something blooming there and lucky for us, this family of four also happened to be wearing clothes that coordinated with the flowers! Have you ever seen a more beautiful foursome?! I had such a hard time narrowing favorites to share from this session!

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
