Boston Newborn Photographers always love to get an email with a subject line like this: I’m expecting again!
I was simply thrilled to hear from one of my West Roxbury clients a few months ago that she was due with Baby Number 3!
You know how when you meet someone on a professional basis and you just instantly like them? You enjoy your work, of course, and (in the case of being a newborn photographer anyway) you spend even more time creating and refining the product that you’re delivering to them?
That’s this family for me. These images are true keepsakes and I know this family will treasure them forever.
I love this couple so much, and I am amazed at how far they have come since we met just over three years ago. Read on to find out why.

Frankie (Frances), joined twin siblings Charlotte & Jack in November. She was just about five weeks old when I visited for our photo session. She was alert for much of the session which was great because there was a lot of love being showered upon her by her parents, brother and sister.
Five week old babies still tire easily though, which means we were able to get a nice mix of images, both awake and asleep.
Isn’t she beautiful, all swaddled and sleeping soundly?
Seeing Frankie’s parents handle the birth of their third child in stride was no surprise to me because they are such down to earth, relaxed people.
I was so impressed with them during our first session together, when Charlotte and Jack were newborns. You wouldn’t have known from looking at them, but the twins were born very premature at just 27 weeks. The path from birth to home was long the first time around, but mom and dad made it through with smiles on their faces.
This time, things went a lot more smoothly.
I love working with this family because they really value the role that authentic photography plays in creating their family memories. Mom and Dad committed to my special Birth to Birthday package, which includes three sessions (view their 6 month session and 12 month session) as well as a gorgeous coffee table album of highlights from their first year.
I can’t help but think that Frankie is creating yet another new chapter for this fun and loving crew. Check out some candid moments that happened during this session.
I love how they feel very natural and true to life with three little kids!

The holiday season brings gifts in all shapes and sizes, but this special family received one of very best presents. Not one, but TWO boys! I was so happy to meet up with them at their home just outside Boston, MA for some photos of their twin newborn boys.
It was an unseasonably warm afternoon in October when I met up with this family in Hull, MA for their family portrait session. Mom and I were both worried it would be too cold for a beach session, but the weather turned out to be amazing. The sky and sunset were exquisite. We all felt so lucky to have such perfect weather for their beach session in Boston.
I always get really excited when I’m going to have a session with twins. I guess I just find families with twins fascinating, since my husband is a fraternal twin and he and his brother could not be more opposite. And I find that this is usually the case with the personalities of twins — one is always a bit more daring, the other a bit more shy, one is more serious, the other more silly. It’s like they split the personality traits right down the middle when they are in the womb!
Katie and Madison were no exception to this rule — Katie (in turquoise) was a bit more reserved when I first arrived, while Maddie (in purple) went right to work showing me all the toys, dancing on dad’s feet, climbing the walls (literally!) and jumping off the sofa! This mom and dad sure do have their hands full with two under two, but they truly made it look easy.
Katie warmed up quickly and was soon showing me her big beautiful smile. I love her brown eyes…. and those cheeks!!
This just screams real life to me.. 🙂
Who needs to workout when you have these two to carry around!?
All great photo sessions end with kisses… !

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!! (more…)
