Here’s A, giving herself a little cool-off…

And the handsome Mr. A:

And this cracked me up. I was trying to get a picture with the lollipops out of their mouths, so I said – “Put your lollies in the air!”, but Miss A heard “Put your lollies in your hair!” Luckily their parents are the best sports ever and they got a big laugh out of the sticky mess that ensued. Sorry guys! Adorable pictures, sorry about the snarls. The rest of the pics will be ready by the end of the week.

Four cousins and a hose

I am such a huge fan of the perfect belly on 15 month old E on the right… also his “I’m not so sure about this hose thing” face:

Here are the four cousins in a nice row, from left to right, A, who’s 15 months old, E, who’s almost 2, and then A, who’s 5 years old and last but not least, M, who’s 3 years old.

Don’t they make a handsome group?

Brothers A and A, giving a nice squeeze:

And M and E – getting the giggles. It was fun seeing you guys last Friday – your photos will all be ready by the middle of next week.

Cheerios and giggles

Meet beautiful little 16 month old S. It was ten days ago now that I took her pictures, and her family’s been very patient! A sweet little this little clasped hand one:

Mommy was playing a game with the curtain here:

What a great excited face:

Bouncing on Mom’s lap:

I love kitty looking out the window in the background here:

And when we had a bit of a meltdown towards the end of the shoot, the magic of Cheerios saved the day:


6524, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

What a little lady! She has such a great expression in this one, as she daintily takes another Cheerio.

Thanks for a great photoshoot, the rest of your photos will be ready ASAP.

12 hours old

I have to start by saying I’m sorry to the six families who are waiting for their photos to be posted right now – but I had to jump the line for this little guy. He was born this morning, and because his parents are our very best family friends, after we visited them in the hospital I needed to blog his pictures right away.

This is the first time (since my own little munchkin) that I’ve photographed anyone who was mere hours old, instead of days. And he truly is just perfect. I am in love already – as are his wonderful mom and dad:

A little toe kiss:

He’s already got a personality:

Counting ten perfect fingers and toes:

Some daddy time (with mommy in the background):


7727, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

This is my husband holding the little guy, with his best friend (and new dad) looking on. Could they ever have imagined this when they were taking baths together at age 2 and 4?

Getting a mommy kiss:

And last but not least, the whole family’s hands. It was an honor to meet you tonight, little guy. xox

Two handsome boys

I’ve been taking pictures of J and L since J was just a chubby bald baby – now he’s such a big boy! I love this sweet moment with the two of them. It’s not often that you can get a two year old and a four year old to relax together, but when it works, it really works.


5913, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Often times I get a chance to capture kids with their beloved nannies – this was one of those times. Dad was a big help making crazy faces behind me for this one, can you tell?


5942, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.


5873, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

We got a zillion photos of this fun family being crazy and laughing, but the few quiet ones like this were so different and cool… I love it. You’d never know mom is expecting her third boy this fall!

And at the end of the shoot, a jump in the pool was necessary. The rest of your photos will be ready ASAP, guys!

Two pugs and a gorgeous girl

Do you believe how sweet this little 5 month old cutie’s hand is on her pup’s back? They were so good with her during the shoot… looking out the window together:


5755, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Even played a game of “pull my finger” with little K:


5664, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

I just adore K’s expression here, with her little hands clasped:


5646, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And you know you’re a mom when this “bomb’s away” moment makes you smile/cringe with the memory:


5628, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

K’s pretty mom did this funny thing with her hands that made for the best giggles!


5701, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And speaking of pretty girls:


5681, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Can you believe the light light blue eyes?


5622, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

As I was packing up the camera bag, after K had had her bottle and her mom put it down on the couch… I had to get just one more “baby” photo.

Doesn’t he look like he’s just finished an afternoon snack?

It was great meeting you guys a few weeks ago – your photos will be ready ASAP! (To other waiting families, I’m still running about 2 weeks behind on the blogging, sorry everybody!)


5765, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Oh, and P.S. – I forgot to mention that this family hired me because they’d seen this old photo of cutie M with her pug from years ago… Doncha just love pugs?

A cutie, plus a few ouchies

I met this 8 month old beauty when she was 8 weeks old, and she’s come a long way since then! These photos are from a little over two weeks ago now – so thanks for your patience, guys. Obviously the girlie is still gorgeous:


5511, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

But she’s gotten some teeth — ouch:


5434, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Getting an outside giggle (with Long Wharf in the background):


5521, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And some of her expressions (OK, all of them) were fantastic.

Considering her options:

Devouring his books

7 and 1/2 month old C loved reading his “Where the Wild Things Are” book so much that he literally devoured it during his photoshoot:

Love the belly:

And on the edge of the tub, enjoying a soft tub toy:

And of course some mushed food:

And some of it ended up on his face:

Handsome boy:

New family photos

See, I wouldn’t have thought of this aspect of adoption – but it makes so much sense…

This sweet family had fun family photos all over their house showing their older three children, but when they adopted T, they realized they needed to update the picture frames with their new family. I’m so glad they did, because it meant I got to spend some time with them.


4932, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

We had a great time snapping shots around their gorgeous yard:


4883, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

I should introduce the eldest, the handsome 16 year old G, for whom, (and this doesn’t make me feel old or anything) I used to babysit when I was a teenager:


4953, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And another handsome guy, A, who is almost 14:


4970, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

A mother-daughter shot with the beautiful M, who’s 11 years old:


5007, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And the third handsome guy – 7 year old T – the newest addition to the family:

It was fun seeing you guys a few weeks ago… all your photos will be ready ASAP!

Overalls on a sweet boy

I went to business school with J’s beautiful mom – and I had a great time meeting her family a few weekends ago. (Yes, I’m a few weeks behind on the blog posts, sorry… took some time off around 4th of july.)

I love this sweet shot with their pup – and the fact that he’s licking dad right on the mouth cracks me up.


4719, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Here’s handsome J:


4537, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And I love this scrunched up nose face:


4658, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Playing with Mom:


4758, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Peekaboo!


4817, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And there’s just something about this one I love… it’s so tender… so sweet. The comparison of the two shoulders – just directly across from each other… but one is so tiny. Also just love the fat little fingers.


4652, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

It was great to see you guys – all your photos will be ready ASAP!


4727, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Look at my crazy sister!

I love this shot, where little brother C is pointing at big sister K – it looks like he’s telling us she’s hilarious:


4332, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

I met big sister K when she was little brother C’s age – and I loved coming back to see what a big girl she’s become. It’s always so fun for me to see kids years later – I love to see the way their smiles stay the same.


4471, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Here’s miss K, getting tossed in the air:


4439, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And you just can’t beat these thighs:

And one last one of the two cuties together. Your pics will be ready ASAP! Thanks for your patience, guys :)

Father’s Day piece on CBS Early Show

I’ve been taking pictures of Eric and Julie Mangini’s family since they lived here in Boston and Eric was a Patriots coach. Now he’s in NY, coaching the Jets, and they remain one of my most fabulous clients ever. I love their family – every time I take pictures for them, they’re always so welcoming and wonderful. I can’t say enough nice things about them.

We had (what I think was) my 7th photoshoot with their family this past weekend at their cape house, and Julie showed me a wonderful piece that CBS’ Early Show did on Eric and his dad, Carmine, back from around Father’s Day. It’s posted on YouTube, so I can link to it here, but I should warn you that the audio sync doesn’t play well with the video at all for some reason. The cool part for me is that they used tons of pictures I’ve taken at their photoshoots over the years in the piece. I took all the family shots that appear as the narrator is talking – isn’t that fun? Thanks for sharing the link, Eric and Julie – and this summer’s pictures will be ready for you in a couple of weeks!

Music and laughter were the themes of the day

Last weekend I spent Sunday morning with these guys and had loads of fun. They both got the giggles on the swings, which I loved. It’s almost hard to shoot when kids are laughing this hard because I start to giggle, the camera starts to shake… but it’s worth it.


4077, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

I should introduce big sister E:


4110, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And little sister M:

Mom played some fantastic blues piano with the girls:


3966, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Then the girls showed their parents their skills:


3942, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And E even brought out her guitar to add to the tunes:


3955, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And M got a tickle from her sister as she rode her rocking horse.


3900, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And brace yourself – this is, by far, the funniest picture I’ve taken in a long time. I love it. It could be captioned so many ways, I’m thinking I’m going to leave it uncaptioned because it tells such a great story on its own.


4189, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And last but not least – the sweet foursome. It was great meeting you guys. I’ll have all your pictures ready for you early this week!

A new baby to join the big crew

This lovely grandma called me last week to see if I happened to have any times available over the weekend for photos. Her whole family was going to be in town, and she wanted to get all sorts of photos of them. I’d had a cancellation, which meant I got to come to her house on Saturday. Here’s her newest grandson, 8 day old B – with his beautiful mom.


3838, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Here’s the whole crew:


3624, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

Here’s a close-up of the youngest member of the family – only 8 days old, and so alert here at the party:


3854, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And you know me, I have a thing for toes:


3872, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And cousin M – those chubby cheeks can’t be beat!


3551, originally uploaded by Boston Baby Photos.

And the four generations together – so sweet. It was great meeting you all. I’ll have your photos ready for you as soon as I can. Happy 4th!
