“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.”

Family of SIX! | Needham Family Photo Session

This wonderful family of six lives in my town, and although I had never met them in person before our session, we have a number of mutual friends. After spending time with this family, it struck me how comfortable I felt with them, and how down to earth they are — I can see why we have friends in common!  Their oldest daughter, Claire, was about to get braces, so Mom wanted to have some photos taken before that big event!  And, of course, she wanted to capture the rest of the family, too, at this time in their lives!

A Surrogate Story | Back Bay Boston Photographer

As a Boston baby photographer, I am blessed with meeting so many parents and hearing so many stories. Libby & Jeff are two of the strongest people I have ever met. Sessions like this one change your outlook on life because you see two people who have been through so much and continue to be amazingly positive and happy. Libby told me, before I met them during their Back Bay newborn session, that their baby was being delivered via surrogate. I did not know their backstory at the time, and did not realize that both of their babies were delivered via surrogate.

Soon after I arrived at their session, Libby told me she had also just been through

Welcome Baby Luca! | Boston Newborn Photography

ntroducing Baby Luca! I got to go out to Luca’s family’s home in the greater Boston area just 14 days after Luca was born.

I was particularly excited about this session, because this was my fourth time photographing this family. I was there when Luca’s big brother, James, was born and even got to do his one-year pictures! I love being around them, and I love that they value family photography, too. Because we have worked together several times, we’ve been able to recreate one special images of Mom and James together in his room from a teeny tiny baby until now.  I love to see his progression over the years!

Family Portraits at the Arnold Arboretum

This family session last October was perfectly timed at the height of the fall foliage here in Boston, and we took full advantage of that at the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts.

Scheduling a Session at the Peak of Boston Fall Foliage

A lot of clients will ask me when the best time is to schedule their fall session if they want gorgeous fall foliage. The problem is that it’s always hard to predict, because the weather can turn on us on a whim. Sometimes, the leaves turn early; sometimes, they turn late. For this family session in particular, we just happened to meet up at the absolute peak of the foliage—and I do mean the peak. Right after we met, it rained, and the leaves fell! Talk about lucky.

Mom had actually gotten in touch with me last year to ask about a family session after following me on Facebook for a while. She loved the personal photos I posted of my own children and wanted something similar. I love it when people find me on Facebook or Instagram because I post a lot of personal stories there. I think that helps people

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.
