Now that I’ve passed the ten year mark as a Boston Family Photographer, I’m relishing in the wonderful relationships that have grown over the last decade. When I left my finance career to become a full-time photographer, I wasn’t thinking about how my life – and the lives of my clients – would evolve in the years ahead. But now I’m witnessing families expand, newborns become middle schoolers, kids becoming teens and teens leaving home. And what did the pandemic create? Many, many more grandparents and Boston Extended Family Photography opportunities. And every single one is so amazing!
Boston Extended Family Photography
I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Erin Kim, a neighbor and mom in Needham as well as the energy behind her blog: The Momming Worker, where Erin very candidly (and humorously!) shares her experiences and her “work-life choices”. Erin’s daughter, Lottie, became a celebrity (in my mind) during my time leading The Front Steps Project, as an image of her bawling in Erin’s arms during their front steps photo session was used by media outlets across the country. (We could all relate, Lottie!)
How thrilled was I when Erin put me in touch with her dad when he was looking for someone to photograph his 50th Wedding Anniversary party this summer?
The Kim/Tobin family has a long relationship with the Boston Harbor Hotel. They’ve hosted many family events and celebrations with the property, known as a Best of Boston destination, over the years.
The hotel organized a gorgeous and very personal event specifically for the immediate family. Guests included the family’s three daughters, their spouses and 8 cousins!
Food, love, fun and more. I loved being a fly on the wall and taking images of this beautiful family as they marked a significant milestone.
Most people hire photographers for large events, like weddings and religious celebrations. I don’t photograph large events. But, smaller intimate ones, like family celebrations, anniversaries, birthdays and more are absolutely on my list. And if you’re already my client, who better to capture your most important moments than someone who knows your family?
I’m here to make sure your treasured images authentically tell the story and bonds of your extended family. Trust me.
