Boston Baby Photo Shoot
Little Liam was born back in July and we had originally scheduled this session to take place in the fall, to capture him at three months old. We ended up postponing this session several times almost all the way to Christmas due to family illness, a rash on Liam’s face, and other hurdles that set us back! But I loved how it worked out because with little Liam being older, he was that much more expressive. There’s such an exceptional period of motor skill growth between three and five months. Babies start having the cutest expressions and making the cutest noises, and you start to see more smiles, more laughs, and more personality. Liam was right on the edge of learning to roll over!
Charlestown Family Photography
This family lives in an older home in Charlestown with a lot of character. There was great, moody, winter light streaming through all the windows and the house is decorated beautifully. I loved the bright colors and details in the nursery especially. Also, since Mom and Dad are both writers, they had a gorgeous library area in their home. Again, that beautiful light spilled through their windows creating a stunning backdrop for family photos.
One of the things I love most about in-home family photography is how everyone can just be themselves. I loved this candid, natural image of Mom and Dad just relaxed together, interacting with Liam, with the Christmas tree in the background.
So quickly, rolling over will turn to walking. Walking will turn to running. And even as soon as next Christmas, it will be a much different energy with these three. Mom and I had talked ahead of time about keeping everything relaxed and natural. And I think that’s what these images show. Just a regular day in their lives, preserved for years to come.
Thank you so much for inviting me into your home and into your lives. I loved being able to capture your beautiful Charlestown home and Liam’s adorable smiles during this session.
