“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.”

Just leave it to Hemingway to perfectly describe how it feels to live in Boston in the springtime! After months of suffering through the cold weather, we have finally made it to the other side and it feels SO good!! We can open the windows and walk outside barefoot ( well, almost ) and exercise outdoors and play in the yard after dinner. Isn’t it AWESOME??read more
Over the last eight years photographing families, I have found there are certain things that work exceptionally well in helping people relax while I take their picture. One of these things is quite simply making good conversation! This can be anything from talking about where families live, where they work or what they love to do in their free time. Being a bit of a chatterbox while I’m photographing them helps people feel less nervous or awkward and this translates into the most natural images! At every photo session, I search for a topic of conversation that allows me to bond with my clients. Perhaps it is becoming a parent for the first time, or it is the decision of whether or not to raise your kids in the city, or it is simply the latest episode of Top Chef!

Having lived in Roslindale, Massachusetts for almost a decade, I am very familiar with the number one outdoor destination in the area — the Arnold Arboretum. Occupying 281 acres, there is just nothing that compares to the beauty and diversity of trees, shrubs, and plants you can find here. It is a fantastic place for a walk or hike any time of year, but my very favorite time to come is in the springtime! Everywhere you turn there are flowers blooming and it seems like every week brings something new to see. I love to come with my own family for hikes, but it also happens to make a quintessential backdrop for photos. I am so excited to highlight my favorite images from this gorgeous Arnold Arboretum family photo session!

Over the years, I have been inside countless client homes for photo sessions. I love meeting people in their personal space, seeing how they live and hearing their life stories. No two at-home sessions are ever alike, which is easily the best part of my job! I love the thrill of not knowing what to expect when I open a client’s front door and then searching for beautiful light, color, lines and texture. I thrive on the anticipation of what new treasures await me at each and every client home.
I can safely say that the treasures hidden behind this family’s front door wereread more
I always get really excited when I’m going to have a session with twins. I guess I just find families with twins fascinating, since my husband is a fraternal twin and he and his brother could not be more opposite. And I find that this is usually the case with the personalities of twins — one is always a bit more daring, the other a bit more shy, one is more serious, the other more silly. It’s like they split the personality traits right down the middle when they are in the womb!read more
I remember when my first son turned one, friends, family and even strangers suddenly started asking me when I would have another. Apparently, the first birthday is a milestone after which it is socially acceptable to start bugging parents about getting pregnant again! Personally, I couldn’t imagine having another baby right away. I was too exhausted from stressing out over every detail of my son’s life ( can you say helicopter parent?) to consider having another!! But over the years, I have photographed numerous families with two babies under two, and there are definitely some positives to this scenario!read more

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.
