Have You Chosen Your Annual ‘Moment in Time’?

Have You Chosen Your Annual ‘Moment in Time’?

You’d never know it by the weather, but October is here — which means November (and December!) are right around the corner. I’m just going to say it: It’s time to think about your Boston Holiday Card Photos.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I always have my camera in my hand. I’m always aiming to freeze time. I desperately want to snag the images that capture a family (including mine!) in their essence: the personal moments of joy, silliness, rest, love or comfort.

I take my ambition to capture those soulful moments with me to every single family photo session. Can I capture the moment that will freeze time for you, just that one day, one glance, one laugh?

My clients use their images in many ways. I’ve helped create stunning albums, gallery walls, framed images for desks, and perhaps the most popular: The Annual Holiday Card.

Read on to see some of my favorite images that adorned my clients’ holiday cards over the years.

Sibling Sister Love. Such a gorgeous family and great day for a session at Lars Anderson Park in Brookline. I love the age range of these girls. A year later, they’ll look so different. So grateful we stopped time just for this moment.

Sweet Goodbye. I love and miss this once-from-Needham family so much. With an impending move to Washington, D.C., they sought a series of keepsakes that would allow them to remember their Needham home. Nothing fancy. Barefoot. Casual. I wrote all about their story on the blog.

That giggle, right? I remember when this family showed me their holiday card. The theme was Joy. While the boys certainly look happy, I think the real joy was felt by their parents. They received so many compliments!

Classic, right? Nothing makes opening up the nightly pile of cards more fun than the one that offers humor and the honesty of #reallife. Sandwiched between his bawling sisters, this sweet boy was doing all he could to smile for the friendly photographer (I was laughing, of course!).

No words for these gorgeous girls running through the wildflowers as their parents chill in the background. Perfect.

I always chuckle when I see this fun family from Newton. I’ve had the pleasure of photographing them for close to ten years! Every time the boys are getting bigger and bigger. I find myself cheering on their mom, the lone female in the home!  Of course, she is fantastic.

And, lastly, my holiday card: The Soulia Family 2018. Like you, I haven’t chosen our image for 2019 yet, but my camera is ready for my family and yours.

Get in touch to schedule a session before the holidays arrive.

Arnold Arboretum Family Session Cara Soulia Photography

In the Spring of 2017, I got to photograph this wonderful mother and daughter in a gorgeous, flower filled photo session at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston, MA.  I can’t believe it’s been six years already since the first time I met and photographed these two!

This is actually the fourth time I’ve photographed this mother and daughter and every time it is so much fun!  They have such a special bond and are not afraid to show it.  Sarah and her daughter are so easy going and natural in front of the camera and they’re always truly a joy to work with.

The Arnold Arboretum is a National Historic Landmark located in Boston’s Emerald Necklace and this place really BLOOMS in the Springtime and I always jump at the chance to do photo shoots here.  Even on a busy day at the arboretum, it doesn’t feel crowded.  There are acres and acres of beautiful space and we can always find a private place to walk and take photos.

This family of four were such troopers, meeting up with me early in the morning the day after Halloween!  Not only that, but it was also the day after daylight savings – which messes up everyone’s sleep, and it was soooo chilly outside.  But, when I showed up super early in the morning at their house, everyone was (more…)
