Little Angel – Boston Newborn Photographer

Well, here is the latest little angel that I was so fortunate to photograph last week.  She was so sweet and such a delight to work with.  Not much fussing or crying and pretty much slept through the entire session!  She let me shoot a couple adorable set ups and I couldn’t believe how fast the time had flown.

Love your soft processing on these and that little baby is so SWEET! Beautiful work.

Sasha - April 12, 2011 - 1:43 pm

Oh my god, these are PRECIOUS. Those close ups on the eyelashes and mouth are TO DIE FOR! Any chance you need an assistant? A naked baby wrangler?

Sweet Baby Boy – Boston Newborn Photographer

I had the privileged of photographing this lovely NYC family this weekend.  This is their first baby and he couldn’t have been more sweet and adorable.  It was fun working with them.  They were game for all my crazy ideas and we basically turned the apartment upside down to make room for my set ups.  In the end, I would say it was worth it.  We decided to do a combination of posed and lifestyle portraits.  Below is a peek at some of the wonderful moments we were able to capture.  Shai and Liz, thank you so much for inviting me into your home.  It was an honor to spend the day with you and your new family.

Valentine Studio Session – Boston Children’s Photographer

Well, after a long and wonderful holiday pause, I am back with some big news and a new session. Over the holidays, I spent my time not only with friends and family, but also working on an exciting project. I am happy to announce that I now have a studio in West Concord! Some wonderful artist space came available in the Old Bradford Mill in West Concord. It is located behind the Quilter’s Way shop and directly across the street from the West Concord Five and Ten on Bradford St. It is a terrific location with lots of potential for outdoor urban shots in the spring, summer and fall. Not to mention that is also right behind the Rideout Playground! The Mill’s new owners are making steady progress on the renovations of the mill buildings. My studio is located in the last building to be renovated so it still looks a bit rustic on the outside. But not to worry, I have spent several months renovating my space (new floors, paint, decorations). It has high ceilings, exposed beams and huge windows for lots of natural light! I can’t wait to share photos of the space once it is completed.

In the meantime, I would like to share with you my first session in my new studio loft. Her mom and I decided on a Valentine theme with a couple outfit changes. I always love shooting Miss S. She is incredibly photogenic and so much fun to work with. Thanks again Sasha for everything!

Beautiful Boston Family – Boston Family Photographer

Last weekend I had the pleasure of shooting this beautiful family from Boston.  We braved the VERY chilly and windy weather to shoot in my favorite Concord location.  Luckily, the fall colors were still on display and made a perfect backdrop for the day.  Laurie and Brian, thank you for hanging in the there with me.  I know it was so chilly but I am happy we were able to shoot in spite of it.  And I hope you’ve had a good laugh at my expense over the dock/water “incident”.
