“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.”

Orchard in Bloom | Needham Maternity Photographer

Spring is the season of growing and I loved that we were able to have this sunset maternity session at a local apple orchard in full bloom!  (How apropos!) I’m so lucky to call this beautiful mama-to-be my friend and neighbor — and she makes a pretty amazing maternity model, too!  We had so much fun running around the apple orchard finding all the most amazing spots for pictures and staying until the sun dropped below the horizon.  This session truly was one of my photographer dreams come true.  Thank you Megan for being so awesome! When the sun sets all the magic happens…  😉 Cara Soulia is a Boston area maternity photographer who specializes in creating beautiful maternity portraits that celebrating the power and the beauty of the physical changes in the female body when pregnant.  Click here to see more of Cara’s work or get in touch to schedule your maternity session.  ... read more

6 fun things to do with kids in Boston in May

Although it is torrentially pouring outside my office window as I type this blog post, it is finally May and I do believe the fear of snow is behind us and there are lots of warm sunny days in the near future! As I drive around town I find myself completely distracted by all the amazing trees blooming in everyone’s yards right now (Yes, that’s me going 20 mph with my head hanging out the window). Fall is still my favorite season in Boston, but spring is definitely a close second!

If you’re like me, you’re always looking for

12 ways your school picture day could be better! | Boston school photographer

I have been taking school pictures at Boston area preschools for the last five years and in that time I have created portraits of hundreds of beautiful little people. Despite the fact I have consistently received rave reviews from parents about the children’s images, I find that school administrators still have uncertainty about switching to a new photographer or walking away from traditional big box school portrait providers.

Miles is One! | Back Bay Family Photographer

The last time I saw this family, their baby boy was just a a week old! How fun it was to come back to this awesome Back Bay apartment again to capture some new memories a full year later. I always love to see how much babies grow over their first year, but even more, I love to see how much couples transform into seasoned parents, at ease in their roles as Mom and Dad.

Here’s a fun before and after

Lila is a big sister! | Boston Family Photographer

A lot has happened since I last saw this beautiful family. They moved to a new home and welcomed a second baby girl into their family!! I was so honored that they called me again to document this very special time in their lives.
Lila was beyond excited to introduce me to her new baby sister, Adeline Olive ( have you ever heard a better name? I believe she has a future as a famous author, with a name like that!)

The pictures are absolutely wonderful. What a gift you have! The composition of some of the photos is just amazing, too.
