Newborn baby with mother and father at session in boston, ma

So tiny.

So peaceful.

His eyes, closed. His little nose. Lips parted as he rests in his parents arms.

Welcome, Graham. You are home.

Boston Newborn Photography

It’s Boston newborn photography sessions like this that refuel me. And I am not ashamed to tell you that I need a little refueling these days.

Meeting Graham’s parents at their home was the breath of fresh year-end air that I needed. Their space exuded life: bright and vibrant colors, a love of plants, and a curious kitty.

Their first baby, a boy named Graham, came earlier that month and – per usual – lit up the room.

I love at-home newborn sessions because no two are ever alike. I don’t visit the home prior to the photography session, so when I arrive, I’m seeing a brand new location for the very first time. I love scouting the best spots for color, light and comfort. Hearing the stories of a new or growing family’s home, history and life is like reading a short story or listening to a fantastic podcast. I learn about YOU.

In doing so, I figure out how to use my camera to authentically tell your story.

Baby Graham’s grandmother is a knitter, so the house was filled with many items. I could only imagine how hard she worked on each and every one, just waiting for his arrival. Booties, a sweater, a hat. Graham will have plenty of handmade ways to keep the chilly air away this winter.hand knitted booties on baby at boston newborn photography session

And, indeed, their curious kitty made sure to protect his new friend. Don’t you wish animals could tell us what they’re thinking when a new baby arrives?

I do. You *know* it’s good.
