The Boston Public Garden Maternity Session Cara Soulia Photography

Late last October, I had the opportunity to create some beautiful maternity portraits for this sweet couple in Beacon Hill and at the Boston Public Garden!  Sarah and Justin are first-time expecting parents and I was so excited to capture this special time for them.

Beacon Hill Maternity Session

Sarah and Justin are so excited to be first-time parents; But what’s even more exciting is that they’re expecting twin boys! It was important to Sarah that the images from their session be natural and relaxed.  I can completely relate to this request!  It can feel awkward to be in the front of the camera sometimes. I like to give plenty of direction during sessions to help people feel as relaxed as possible!

Since it was October, we wanted to be sure to capture some fall colors and of course a little bit of Boston in the background. We decided to visit Acorn Street in Beacon Hill, which happens to be one of the most photographed streets in America! There is nothing more picturesque than the red brick buildings, cobblestones and all of the greenery that surround the homes here.  After Acorn Street, we headed down to the Boston Public Garden. You can’t get much more ‘Boston’ than these two locations!

Justin & Sarah were so sweet together, and it is always so fun for me to witness relationships like this.  They were so comfortable, easily making each other smile and laugh the whole time we were together. I could tell they are a really great team and will be wonderful parents to their baby boys.

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!

No matter the season, there is always a gorgeous backdrop to be found at the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain, MA.  But probably one of the most popular times of year to visit is around Mother’s Day, when the lilacs are in bloom.   Lucky for this mom, she was 36 weeks pregnant in May and we were able to take advantage of the stunning flowers.  It was this couple’s first baby and (more…)
