This beautiful mama who is also a fellow photographer with SO much talent reached out for a motherhood session just two months after her second baby girl was born. I was so excited to meet her and her girls and completely smitten by all their adorableness. Best news? We shoot again in September, with dad, too... and I am so excited to spend some more time with them. For now though, she's got a whole bunch of photographs to print of just herself and her beautiful babies. I can't think of anything better to treat yourself to <3
Sweet Lydia graced this beautiful family of four early this month and made this beauty a big sister! The last time I saw this adorable family was when Emme, now 2, was a newborn. So happy to be invited back into their home to capture all the snuggles saved up for their new baby girl. Congratulations Beth & Kyle!
The importance of a Mama & Me session. I've touched on it before, several times... but I feel like if it was really received well, if it was driven home the way I think it should be, more people would be booking sessions like these.
When I get inquiries from mothers who want me to come into their home and document the love they have for their children, I melt. Really though, I think it's the most incredible thing for a mother to value this amazing time so much to hire a photographer to document it before it passes. Too often I hear from mother's "I wish I had a photograph like that of me and my babies." or "I'm always behind the camera, never in front of it with them." Change that. Once a year, once every other year, whenever you see fit, change it. Make it happen.
Don't regret what you can so easily change. You're the most important person, soul, heart, thing, being in your children's life... but for how long? When does that change? The thought is daunting, so why not make sure you capture the time when YOU were all that they adored, why not document all of your joy & hard work. Treat yourself to the gift of photographs with your children. If it's not one of your most prized possessions now, it will be later. Freeze the best days of your life, even if it's just for a second.
These moments are everything. Family is everything. Don't let it pass too quick without documenting it, if not for yourself, for your children. <3
Danielle is the owner of a wildly successful home decor shop in Boston, MA called Neatly Nested Decor.
Her style is impeccable and naturally her home was straight out of a magazine.
I had the pleasure to photograph their announcement that they were expecting back in the winter on the streets of Boston. They grabbed some coffees from Starbucks and appropriately labeled them "Mom" and "Dad", that session was of course blogged, you can find it here.
I knew I would be coming back to spend time with her in a few months for a maternity session and then again after to welcome her sweet baby. Danielle had envisioned an at home maternity session followed by a walk in Castle Park in Boston. It couldn't have been better.
This mama is stunning, and I am honored to capture this amazing time in her life. We will meet her baby next month in June. xo
I can't even explain how sweet and amazing this family is. They welcomed their sweet baby boy, Forest, into the world just 3 short weeks ago. He is beyond precious. His sweet big sister totally stole my heart, too. I told them I'm totally down to babysit, any day of the week. I'm putting it in writing. Maybe they'll take me up on it one day?
Enjoy all of the sweetness and congratulations to the new family of four. From experience, it's a really great number<3
Over the weekend I had the pleasure to photograph this amazing family on their family beach! This family of four had me laughing and swooning over how well this brother and sister got along. They were so sweet and so fun to hang out with. AND THEIR DOG. Ah, I totally fell in love. I hope that this beautiful mama decks her walls with these images... everything looks even better in print<3
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
