The twin boys in this family attend a preschool where I take school portraits and I was honored to photograph their family last summer at one of their favorite stomping grounds (and mine!), the Arnold Arboretum.

My husband has a fraternal twin brother, so I have a soft spot for parents with twin boys.  One thing that never ceases to amaze me is just how different twin personalities can be, and these sweet little boys were no exception. (more…)

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…)

From the moment I met them, I was struck by the energy and happiness that radiates from this family. I couldn’t help but be swept up in their joy—it was contagious.

This was my first time photographing a family with (more…)

It was a hot and sunny evening in June when I met up with this family of four at the Arnold Arboretum in Roslindale.  The last time I saw them was a full year ago at their home, just after second baby was born.  It was so much fun to see them again and to see how much their girls have grown!

I’ll just sum it up by saying: sessions like this make me giddy.  These images are what happens when (more…)
