rain, rain, you can stay | Family Photographer in Needham MA

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

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!
