M&S – five years running!

What big girls! I’ve been taking photos of M and S since the first year I started my business, and they’re getting so big! Always gorgeous, always fun… see below to see the girls through the years. The other fun idea that they had is that they don’t send out Christmas cards – they always send out Valentine’s Day cards, which gives us all a bit more time during the busy holiday season. Thanks for all the fantastic moments, guys!

And last year, in 2006, we had to do a little karaoke, of course.

J&M have a holiday giggle

These two were no stranger to the giggles… they didn’t stop for almost the whole time!

What a gorgeous boy.

And what a smile from Miss M.

Last fall, I had my first shoot with these wonderfully sweet kidlets. The handsome Mr. J:

And the Divine Miss M, last fall on a swing.

Those last exciting few weeks

A and B got this photoshoot as a present from a bunch of their friends, and we get to do one after the baby’s born too. They were such a sweet couple, I loved spending time with them. Expecting the first baby is such a fantastic time – so exciting. I can’t wait to meet their new little person!

Here’s beautiful A alone. I love the lines of this one, the round belly within the more angular triangle. And there’s so much to think about with the first baby… I like the moment, too.

Tag, you’re it!

These three guys were fantastic. We had a cold day, but they decided to go coatless anyway, which I think looked great. We had to move and groove to stay warm, but that was OK – it made it even more fun.

More wiggles:

Here’s O, back in the spring of ’06, when she came in to one of my store photoshoots at Janie & Jack with her younger brother. The way her eyes look here are the whole reason I love shooting studio style once in a while. Gorgeous.

Here’s her brother on that same day in the spring of ’06, enjoying Thomas the Tank Engine the way only a teething boy can. (Thomas was disinfected between each child, don’t worry!)

Two fabulous grins

I’ve been taking pictures of T since he was just a little guy, and it’s so fun to see him playing with M now! Just after she was born we did a shoot, and T was so amazing with her… just such a gentle, sweet brother, I loved it. I’ll post one from that shoot below. And then before that we’d done one last xmas when mom was pregnant with M, and we had lots of fun playing outside. Going back and seeing how families grow and change is one of the best best best parts of doing what I do.

When M was just 5 weeks old, and T was 3, earlier this year, I got to come meet her for her first photoshoot. I can’t say it enough – I love love taking pictures of big siblings with their new baby brothers and sisters. Their interactions are just so amazing. T was so gentle and sweet with his new sister.

And this is from last xmas, back in 2006, when M was still in her mom’s belly, we played outside a bit. I always have such fun with these guys.


295, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And can’t forget T, back in the day at the Janie & Jack store photoshoot in Spring ’05 in my silver washtub with that yellow rubber duck. His little curls behind his ear and those lashes… you can see how much M already looks like him – I love it!

Handsome and pensive

Ooh this guy is just too much. We did a holiday photoshoot last year, when he was just 8 weeks old, and now he had even more hair and more smiles for me. To die for!

And what’s better than a good giggle with mom? Nothing.

And this was last year, when J was only 8 weeks old! I know – incredible, right? He looks so wise, and that head of hair is amazing. What a cutie pie.

What a perfect little guy

Little P was a total dream. I mean, how could he not be? Look at those eyes. We started out inside by the xmas tree…


2963, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

We went outside with this great sled that P’s mom and dad found at a garage sale. So retro – and he had a blast zipping around the back yard in it. He’s got this great expression he makes for the camera, it cracked me up.

Here’s P earlier this year – totally perfect, cuddled in mom’s arms, when he was only 8 weeks old.

Who’s cuter than N in a skirt in the snow?

My two year old has been the same way this season – a little apprehensive about the snow. But what fun to capture that feeling… next winter they’ll be crazily making snow angels. I’ve been taking pictures of N since she was just a few weeks old, and I always have such fun seeing how she’s grown.


2897, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Here’s N at her baptism in 2006 – taking a moment’s break with her mom.


017, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And when N was just 4 weeks old, back in 2005 – this is one of my all time favorites – here’s N at her first photoshoot. I love the way they’re looking at each other.

Double the fun

C and A were just a treat at their photoshoot! Gorgeous giggles right at the end, while their mom and dad did a little crazy dancing to help me out. And before that we had some really sweet moments in front of the tree.

Whatcha reading?

I met these guys (as I met so many great families) at the Janie & Jack/ Pottery Barn Kids photoshoots when they were just tiny little cuties back in March of ’06. Look at those eyes! Just adorable. And only a few weeks old here.

Who’s got the best dimples? You do!

I love a good mirror shot – and with a cutie like G in the reflection, we couldn’t go wrong. What a grin! I’ve been taking pictures of G since he was a wee one, too… I’ll post some older shots below.


2276, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And we can’t forget the family’s first baby.


2253, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

I came out for G’s first bday this summer, and he enjoyed some pasta with red sauce… you really can’t beat the messy face pictures, I just love them. And do you believe what a little guy he looks like, just six months ago?


3765, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And G came to my March ’06 Jimmy Fund Studio Day for his 9 month old pictures – I’m so glad he did! I love seeing how much he changes each time.


642, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And then three months before that, when he was just a leetle 6 mo old guy, we did these shots at his house. Love that grin, even back then!

Big girls!

We played inside, we played outside… we had a great time. A & K have grown so much since last year, when K was just a tiny new arrival. And this year, K looks so much like A did a few years ago, it’s so neat!


2073, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And then last year, when K was just 3 weeks old, sleeping on her mom’s shoulder. A two year old A checks her out. Another one of my all-time faves.

And then here’s A in 2005, at only 8 1/2 months old. Doesn’t she look like her sister? Gorgeous – the both of them :)

Big squeeze

These guys were such good sports – we zipped outside in the snow for a couple of shots, and they decided to brave the cold, but a good hug kept them warm. I love how long E’s hair has gotten since last year!


1857, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

I swear, E looks just like a Gap model in this getup, doesn’t she? I love it.


1746, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And then last year, here’s E watching her mom waving from outside the window :)


789, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And when E was just a little munchkin, we met back at the Janie & Jack photoshoots I used to do at the Natick Mall. Wasn’t she gorgeous, even then?

Holiday wishes

Doesn’t J look like she’s making an xmas wish? I love the faraway look in her eye. I know I keep saying this, but she’s gotten so big since the last time I took her picture, back in April! Her sister S is below…


1159, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

I’m a total sucker for eyelash pictures – I adore them. And S has such great ones, I love this moment — it’s so quiet.

Here are the beauties together, back in early April.

I almost forgot to include an oldie but a goodie – here’s S at her Janie & Jack photoshoot back in the Spring of ’05, trying on mom’s glasses. :) For more info on this “studio style” photography, see info about my bi-annual Jimmy Fund Studio Days here.

Outside and inside time

Even with a chill in the air, we got outside for a few shots with the whole fam playing. This cutie loved being tossed around.


0214, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Inside, quiet time is such a wonderful time to capture. I love getting a chance to do inside and outside pictures – getting a chance to see different sides a little one is the best way to do it, I think.

Lila Guide Launch Party

This past weekend I was the LilaGuide.com Launch Party’s photographer at Together in Motion in Arlington. It was a fun event, with goodie bags for all. The LilaGuide.com is an online resource for moms; a “word-of-mouth survival guide for Boston”.

The kids all had a blast running around in Together in Motion‘s indoor playspace (it’s a great place to play if you’re near Arlington!).
