“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.”

Moving on! Needham Family Photographer

This summer,  I met up with a Needham family for a session that was especially near and dear to my heart.

I have known this family of five for a long time now. Their oldest daughter has been good friends with my own daughter since they were in Kindergarten! When I heard the news that they would be relocating to the Washington, D.C. area, I knew it would be hard to say goodbye. It’s so hard to see friends leave, especially since they’ve built up such an amazing network of friends here in town.

Mom And Her Girls | Massachusetts Family Photographer

This mother and her daughters met up with me back in June at the Arnold Arboretum in Roslindale, Massachusetts, for an amazing mother/daughters photoshoot.

Solutions at Work

I first met this family back in 2012 — I was photographing an event at Solutions at Work in Cambridge (a nonprofit that offers homeless and low-income families children’s items and professional clothing for new jobs to meet their needs as they achieve self-sufficiency), and this family was there participating in the event. I noticed Lani, the older girl, right away because she was so stunning—I simply had to ask her parents if I could take pictures of this beautiful girl! Six years later, Lani has turned into a gorgeous young lady, and I had the pleasure of meeting her little sister, Lorelai, who wasn’t born yet when I first met her family.

In the six years since I first met these women, a lot has happened. Sadly, the girls’ dad passed away unexpectedly, so their mom has been bravely raising these girls without him. Even though it has been a rough road for her, I can see

Family Portraits through the Years | Massachusetts Family Photographer

I have been working with this family for the last 3 years, ever since their second daughter, Isabelle, was born! Since that time, I’ve been thrilled to watch this family grow as both of their little girls develop their own personalities and have adventures together. I look forward to their family session every year because I know it’s always going to be a treat! Mom and Dad are both professors and such interesting people, so I always enjoy talking with them—and all four of them are some of the sweetest, most laid-back people to work with, too! I always design a coffee table album for Mom every year, and I know she has a growing collection on her shelf from our sessions together.

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

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
