Five Reasons Why You *Need* an In-Home Photo Session

Five Reasons Why You *Need* an In-Home Photo Session

Home. The place you’ve chosen to spend the most important hours and minutes of your days, with people who matter the most. While I love photographing families outside in the gorgeous seasons we experience in Boston, in-home sessions really are a favorite. Home is where your family becomes, well, a family.

Is there anything better than the glow that is ever-present on a new parent’s face the days, weeks and early months following the birth of a child?

I *love* being a Boston newborn family photographer. I love it so much that I left a thriving corporate career (and its predictable salary) years ago to live a life fulfilled by my passion: using my training, skills and talent to capture images of babies, children, parents and families that go well beyond your standard pose-and-smile-then-point-and-click.

How gorgeous is this photo?

And, no, I’m not saying that to toot my own horn! I’m reacting to the facets of this image that are hopefully speaking to you, too.

Apples + Pumpkins + Donuts = Smiles Galore! | Boston Fall Photo Session

┬áCan you feel it? The crisp air is arriving. I’m just looking back at my portfolio of this fantastic family because I have the pleasure of seeing them again very soon. These images remind me how perfect Fall is for a Boston Fall Photo Session. Not only is the light just right, but the ever-evolving foliage offers photographers (like me!) a different scene for every single family. No two days are alike.
