Look-alike sibs

I met this little cutie in the spring of 2005 at one of my photoshoots at the Pottery Barn Kids store (yes, my backdrop, lights and I were all squished in there within the cute kids furniture), and his grin was just infectious.

And he didn’t mind time on his tummy at all :)

Then last week, at my Jimmy Fund Studio Day (1pm appointment), I met his little sister. She was a fabulously chubby pleasure too!

Leg rolls, arm rolls… all the very best.

I lurrrrve expressive baby eyebrows.

And little pointed toes, the wrinkle of folded skin around the wrist… sigh…

I love dimples

my Jimmy Fund Studio Day 11:30am appointment:

This little guy has three older brothers, but mom brought him in for my Jimmy Fund Studio day all by himself. I love this shot with mom’s cool zebra shoes and her bright green shirt, not to mention the best rolls and squishy legs…

See what I mean about the dimples?

Next to dimples, I also just adore arm rolls. I guess I’m in the right line of work.

So proud of being able to hold up his own head :)

And last but not least, I just love all the skin textures in this one.

Fun with her new brother

So I’ve known little H since she was just a few weeks old – her mom and I met in a mom’s group (our girls are almost the same age), and she came to my Jimmy Fund Studio Day last spring and gave me her gorgeous smile then:

And then she showed me her halloween costume this past October when she was just about 2 yrs old:

My Jimmy Fund Studio Day 11:00am appointment:

And now look at her. Isn’t she adorable?

And this time she introduced me to her perfect-cheeked little brother:

They even got some cuddles in.

And baby brother got to show me his Red Sox pride. Love it!

Fall in March?

This fun family and I had the best time playing outside on Wednesday – they were tossing leaves around and playing with bubbles… and yes, it’s March… very weird weather day. But we’ll take it! These guys were super fun (as mom’s brother was just a few weeks ago), (and as her wonderful sister, who started the whole family thing, has been over many years of photos), and I can’t wait to keep working on the photos.


9544, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

All three girls and their bubbles. I love little K’s pursed lips in this one:


9494, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And I had to show you this tickle-fest moment… couldn’t resist.


9236, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And the big sister, the beautiful miss K… she turned to me here, and gave me her winning smile. A heartbreaker in the making!


9503, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And the middle sister, the beautiful miss C – enjoying her bubbles. I love her t-shirt in this one for some reason, and the way her arm is outstretched. The bubble is pretty fabulous too.


9465, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And the littler miss K, also beautiful in her favorite dress ups. Can you just see how much fun she’s having in her huge grin? I’ll finish up these photos for you by the end of next week. We got tons of great ones, I can’t wait to show you!

Eyelashes and grins

This guy has the best eyelashes and most infectious smile ever. I met him six months ago at my last Jimmy Fund Benefit Studio Day, (here he is in September with his lighter summer hair), and he’s such a pleasure.

And reclining in the chair…

Jimmy Fund Studio Day, my 10:30am appointment:
And here’s R – I love his fingers in this shot, all intertwined…


9512, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

See what I mean about the eyelashes?


9510, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And I had to include this one – I feel like six months ago he was still such a little guy, and here he looks like he’s four going on eleven…

A boy and his Wii

I met T and his big sister M last summer, and then T has come to my last two Jimmy Fund Studio Days. Here’s a shot from last summer when they took a bit of time to read in the back yard. I love the way the light reflects on the book up into their faces in this one.

Then last fall T enjoyed a little fun with my trusty Thomas train…

Jimmy Fund Studio Day, my 10:00am appointment:
And then here’s T from last week, holding his beloved Wii. He takes it everywhere. I love capturing little things like that in photos. I think he’ll probably stop carrying it around eventually :), and then later these’ll be fun photos to have.

What a handsome guy.

Mother’s Day photos are hard

I’ve been working on my newsletter today, hunting around for a cool photo site of the month… I thought it’d be great if it could have a Mother’s Day theme, since the April newsletter gets people thinking about Mother’s Day in May. Then I found this, which I’ve seen before, but it makes me laugh out loud every time I see it.

I guess getting a great photo of the boys together is still hard even when they’re older:

OK, back to work. I just had to share.

This video is hilarious! Hadn’t heard of Barats and Bareta but since watching this, have been telling everybody to check out their website. Thanks for sharing & great blog!

M&M – gorgeous-o

Jimmy Fund Studio Day, my 9:30am appointment:

A year and a half ago, I met M at one of my first Jimmy Fund Studio Days – and this shot of her back with it’s perfect dimples is one of my favorites ever. I love love love it. This time she brought her brother (the littler of the two M’s), and you’ve got to see how alike they look…


1215, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

So this is the front of big sister M, from the Sept ’06 shoot:

And this is from last week, little brother M – with a great pursed expression… makes me laugh every time I look at it… But don’t his eyes look just like his sister’s eyes in the photo above?

And big girl M sharing her snack with her brother.

Getting a squeeze from mom…

And speaking of great pursed lip expressions – how great is this? Of course we got lots of great smiley pictures too, but these ones are more fun :) I’ll have all the rest of the photos ready for you guys by 4/8!

Oh my goodness! These are adorable!! You are such an amazing photographer. I gave you a tired baby, a coughing toddler unwilling to look or smile at the camera, patterned clothes, disheveled hair… and you give me brilliance!!! Thank you. I’m so excited to see the rest!

The cuties just keep on coming!

Jimmy Fund Studio Day, my 9:00am appointment:

So I’m finally beginning to blog about the Jimmy Fund Studio Day. It was a week ago, and we raised over $800 for the Jimmy Fund. Thank you all! I’m going to be slowly working on the photos over the next couple of weeks, with a goal of getting all of them all finished for everyone by two weeks from today (4/8). I’ll be going through one shoot at a time, in chronological order. So this first one is my 9am from the studio day, and I have to post a zillion background shots for this one because I’ve been taking pictures of his sisters for years. Bear with me (scroll down) to get to his pictures. This one is from one of the first sessions I had at the Janie & Jack store with his sister back in the spring of ’05. Isn’t she perfect?

Then, a year later, her beautiful sister arrived:

And then that fall, in ’06, I got to see the sisters again, first little miss:

And the gorgeous big sister:

And then finally we get to this year’s photo – the little man, loving the Thomas the Tank Engine. Aren’t his toes to die for, and the splayed out fingers just fantastic? The tongue kills me, too.


9250c, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

This one reminds me of that “Kilroy Was Here” graffiti from WWII… peeking over the edge like this. Only MUCH cuter :)


9267, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Yum.


9257, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And last but not least, I do love the crying face. So sad, but so wonderful all at once. Thanks to this family for sharing your cuties with me over and over again! I’ll send you an email when all the photos are ready in about 2 weeks.

The best hair family

It’s hard to tell in black and white, but these boys have by far the best red, thick, curly, gorgeous hair ever – I love it. I met them about a year ago, before their sister was born, and I’ve been back a couple of times since then. They’re really fun together.


9051, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Little miss B, with the cutest little tongue poking out…


9119, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And here’s J, with his devilish smile :)


9041, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And the rakishly handsome mr. S, with the best curls around.


9030, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And this from just after the little B was born – I love this sleepy moment.

See what I mean about the best hair ever? This is one from my first shoot with these guys last year, before their sister arrived.

the SteveSongs cutie pie

My friend Steve is the best best children’s singer ever. I’ve known him since college, and watched his meteoric rise into that world – he’s a veritable Pied Piper, and his music is fun for adults too… If you don’t know his music, check out his website and go to his next show – you won’t be disappointed. He and his fantastic wife Lori welcomed a gorgeous boy last October, and as an early first Mother’s Day present, Steve had me come in and take pictures yesterday.

Doesn’t he look like he knows exactly what I’m doing here?

5 months old and loving the window. I love that little grin!

An oldie but a goodie

A few years ago I used to do photos in Janie & Jack and Pottery Barn Kids stores, and I still hear from the wonderful families I met doing this. Over the years people have contacted me to ask if they could buy copies of the photos I shot in the stores, and I’ve always had to stay no since the company who hired me sold the photos to the clients directly. But now it’s gotten to be so long ago that I shot these photos that the company I worked for doesn’t have the files anymore, so when someone contacted me today asking about photos I shot back in March of 2005, I got to go back and look at them… Ah-DOR-able! What a cutie this little one was!

I can only imagine how gorgeous this little one is as a three year old now!

One year old today

I met a gorgeous little girl yesterday, and today’s her first birthday. Happy Birthday, little T! It was great to get to play with you!

My favorite part of this one is the way their hands are intertwined – it captures such a neat time… I remember when my daughter held me this way :)

And look at those eyes!
