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.  Look how big Miles has gotten!! (more…)

I know it’s hard to believe, but not everyone is thrilled to get in front of a camera. This can be especially true for active young boys who have about a million things they’d rather do than sit for a photo session. I recently photographed a friend and her family, and as we prepped for the shoot, she worried out loud that her sons might not be the most cooperative subjects.

One of the challenges–and joys!–of being a family photographer is easing reluctant kids (and sometimes parents!) into the session, making them feel comfortable, helping them open up, and then capturing the unique traits that shine through. Like my friend’s older son’s sweet sensitivity, and her younger son’s precocious, silly side. (more…)
