The last time I saw this family, they had just welcomed their first baby boy into the family.  I loved Mom & Dad immediately because they told me they met through their mutual love of singing.  I have a soft spot for singers, since I used to do a fair amount of singing in college ( now I’m restricted to the kitchen, my car and the shower… someday maybe I’ll hit the stage again..#bucketlist)

Anyway, I was thrilled when I got an email from Ali telling me she was (more…)

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you might remember Charlotte & Jack — two of the most beautiful and amazing twins ever.  The first time I photographed them, they had just come home from the hospital, after having been born early at just 27 weeks!  Their parents were just settling into life with babies and getting the hang of juggling everything that comes with raising twins.

The clock is ticking… only a couple more days until the kids are out of school for the summer!!  Although June is already half over, I thought it would be better late than never to post about some things to do this month (continuing my “Boston Adventures with Kids” series).

The forecast did not look good the morning of this family’s photo session, but grandma was visiting from Canada and we really wanted to include her in the photos so we did not reschedule.  At the last second, I told Mom, “Worst case scenario:  bring the umbrellas!” And boy, am I glad I did.

Everything started out clear and we were lucky to have the gorgeous orange flowers blossoming in the background.  I love how all these (more…)

5 ways you can help your kids deal with pet loss

5 ways you can help your kids deal with pet loss

We recently had to euthanize our 15 year old cat Riley.   He was a rescue cat from Boston’s Animal Care and Control Shelter in Roslindale and was (IMO) one of the best cats on the planet.  We got him right after we were married so he was with us through all the ups and downs of having three children over the last decade!  He was sweet and loyal and soft and cuddly and we will all miss him so much!
