Home is where the love is… | Family Photographer Massachusetts

When I receive inquiries for photo sessions, people often ask me to recommend a place to go that has a beautiful backdrop for their family pictures. And I think this request makes a lot of sense — it’s amazing to have your family’s photos taken when spring blossoms are in full bloom or fall foliage is at it’s peak.  But I have to say, over the last seven years of photographing families, the sessions at home are almost always my favorites.

This family is not a new client of mine and it’s not the first time I’ve been at their house (the first time was at the newborn session of their second daughter)  But it was the first time we spent so much time outside at their home — playing on the swingset, jumping on the trampoline, watering the flowers, chatting with the chickens ( yes you read that right — chickens!!), and just plain hanging out in the yard.  In my opinion, home is the where all the good stuff happens. Children are so comfortable in their element that their true personalities really come through.  This family chose to have an outdoor session with this me last year at the Arnold Arboretum, and is definitely a favorite of mine, but this one is a very close rival, because it is just so genuine and simple and real.

This post is bursting at the seams with images.  It is hard to narrow them down when I want to show the full story….!

It’s been a while since I’ve photographed this family… the last time, sweet little George had just been born!! Four and a half years later and look how big he’s gotten!!  I met up with this fun crew at the Arnold Arboretum in JP for a late day family session.  The light and weather were perfect and these boys showed no shortage of personality.  I met this mama just over ten years ago when we were in a Baby & Me class together and I’m so thrilled we have been able to keep in touch and that I’ve been able to photograph her family several times over the last decade!

As summer is winding down, I am sorting through hundreds of images from last year and prepping for the busy season ahead.  I realized I never blogged a few awesome families from last fall, including this one!!

This family is a long time client and they are some of my very favorite people to photograph! We were so lucky to have (more…)

I get a little nervous before every photo session. Every. Single. One. It’s not that I don’t know what I’m doing, I just want every single session to be the best one I’ve ever had and I want every client to have fun and feel relaxed and beautiful. Is that so much to ask??

When a dear friend asked me to do an extended family session for her, I was (more…)
