Make Room for the Fur Babies

If you follow this blog regularly, you’re well-aware that I spend a significant amount of my professional time photographing newborns and families in the Boston area. I strive to be a fun family Boston photographer, and sometimes, thanks to an extra family member tagging along, it’s pretty hard for me to fail.

Oh yes, I’m talking about that baby no one really thinks about when they’re planning a family photo session, but who, of course, everyone wants to include when the day comes. The Fur Baby!

Family pets are simply adorable (in photos). I love the top image of this post so much. The pup is bigger than the toddler! Look at how she daintily holds his big leash. What a sweetie pie the pup is….sitting and posing for my camera.

For sure, typical pets like dogs and cats find their way into my sessions, but these young ladies offered me a surprise: chickens! We couldn’t resist bringing a handful of feed over to them. I love the little burst of red in this image.

As usual with my sessions, less can be more. I want to photograph your family in your real life. While we’ll always snag some fantastic posed images, my goal is to capture your family being themselves. So if your toddler drops food to the family dog during snack time, so be it. Now we know why he’s lingering nearby. Turns out it’s not because he dreams of being on film.

This kitty isn’t totally convinced that he wants to participate in my session, but his preschool owner is making sure he stays. So there you go.

Capturing an image of a young boy expressing his true love for the family pet is so heartwarming to me. This pup definitely had something else besides the hug on this mind though, right?

But indeed, I’m here for all of you. Your whole family. Adults, children, and more. I do think this little guy appreciated being center stage in one of the images.

Whether you’re planning a newborn session, family session or an extended family session, trust that I’m there to ensure you get the images that cement memories of that very day. This very moment in your life. If your fur baby (or babies!) are part of the picture (no pun intended!), bring them along. I promise they’ll smile.

I always love to see returning clients, but I was a little more excited than normal to visit Charlotte & Jack for their one year session this past December!  You might remember from reading my blog last year that these very special twins were born at just 27 weeks!  I met them for the first time when they had just come home after being in the hospital for several months.  But now they look just like any other one year olds —  they are healthy and beautiful and have the most adorably chunky baby cheeks that you’ve ever seen!!  And they’ve changed so much since their 6 month session, when they were just sitting up — now they are on the move, crawling and almost walking!!

The majority of my clients have babies or young children so it was a wonderful change of pace to photograph this amazing family of six ( plus pup makes seven!).  I’m simply in awe of parents that have more than three kids!  I know how hard it can be juggle everything and these guys make it look easy.  It was obvious from the moment they stepped out of the car that they are (more…)

When I arrived at this family’s home, they told me right away that their sweet bundle had been awake nearly the whole night before.  They were exhausted.  And boy could I relate to their pain.  Having just had a baby myself five months ago, the memories of those first days home from the hospital with a new baby are extremely fresh in my mind.

The sleep deprivation is brutal and it feels like it will never end.  Friends, family, doctors, nurses and strangers on the street all give their advice and remind you that newborns have their days and nights backwards, and that you should sleep when baby sleeps, blah blah blah!!  But really, it’s just not that easy to (more…)

What’s it like to have an at home family photo session with me on a Saturday afternoon?  Well, it’s a lot like just hanging out with your family at home on a Saturday afternoon!  Maybe minus the walking around in your pajamas in slippers…. although this is certainly not against the rules!

I loved hanging out with this awesome family of four exploring legos, playing with their dog and just capturing who they are right at this time in their lives. (more…)
