Back to School – Boston Family Photographer

I had the most fun tonight shooting this absolutely adorable family.  This shoot actually had a theme….not sure you can tell from the desk, apples, and easel, but it was Back to School!  I will be having more of these themed shoots soon, so keep your eye on the blog and Fan my Facebook Page for updates.

We had a lot of fun and the kids were really into the shoot which just makes my job easy!  Tracey, thank you so much for allowing me to shoot your lovely family!  It was such a pleasure meeting you all.

A Hot Summer Evening – Boston Family Photographer

I had the pleasure of shooting this stunningly beautiful family last weekend.  We had planned the shoot over a month in advance and we somehow managed to pick one of the hottest evenings here in Massachusetts.  The heat was no match for this family.  They were lively and fun and super sweet….not to mention stunningly beautiful.
