First communion beauty

(Yikes, just noticed that this is my 400th blog post.  Feels like yesterday I started doing this.  Just last month I had my 900th shoot, and now the blog’s getting full of posts, too.  Love it.)

This lovely lady is celebrating her First Communion next weekend, so she put her dress on for me the other day and we grabbed some photos.  First, my #1 favorite shot with her sweet mama:

And this is kinda neat with her rosary beads:

A pretty profile:

And wait, you have to see this dress.  The sash and the flowers at the bottom are this amazing lilac color… incredible.

Twinkley-eyed girl:

With her big brother:

This one’s storybook-level cute:

With her pop:

And as the twins’ big sister (by a year) we had to recreate a shot they’d done back when the twins were babies…

And last but not least, doesn’t Ms. A looks like a model here?

Matching girls

These sweet sisters sported some fantastic matching sailor dresses for their photoshoot last weekend, but in this shot I love how they match in so many other ways – the tilting heads, the smiling eyes, the shape of their mouths… incredible likeness.

Big sister M played on the swings – love the eyelashes here:

A pretty smile before jumping to Daddy:

Unbridled joy as she climbs her favorite part of the swingset:

Big sister M kept leaning over to whisper in little sister J’s ear – I loved their connection, so amazing to see :)

Peek-a-boo!

With their mama and daddy looking on:

Love the light reflecting in J’s face here, as her hair blows in the wind:

Wonderful to see you guys again, thanks for having me out!

Amazing!!! All three girls look great! You too, Rick.

Monica - April 30, 2010 - 1:24 pm

Wonderful pictures, can’t get over how much the girls have grown. What a great looking family.

Bonnie - May 4, 2010 - 11:57 am

Bruce - May 21, 2010 - 1:06 pm

The last shot of the family is really a keeper! The happiness is contagious.

Brother-o-mine

Nothing beats a mom and her baby shot, in my mind.  Nothing.

Do you believe big brother C with his little 10 week old brother here?  They see us pinching those sweet cheeks all the time, it’s hard for them not to do it, too.  Luckily little C doesn’t seem to mind.

And when you have the coolest mobile in the world in your room, sometimes you just want to gaze up at it together:

Taking some time with bro’s toes:

A belly tickle:

And the adoration here, as little C stares at big C…. Not to mention the eyelashes! Fantastic.

A mama snuggle/attack:

Big boy holding up his head!  Done with tummy time for today, thank you very much.

Three generations together:

Grandma and her boys:

Love this fat little hand shot, grabbed it as he snoozed at the end of the shoot…

Jorge L> Obando Jr - May 5, 2010 - 9:48 am

The pics are great, Connor and Chase look so happy, see u soon!!!

Lollipopalooza

Phewf! My 13th and final shoot of the April 11th Public Garden charity fundraiser mini-shoot day was with these two cuties.

First of all I have to just say that little brother T in the background here looks so much like his dad (whom I’ve known for 20+ yrs) that it’s eerie!  And T’s adoration of big bro F as he dives for a runaway bubble in this shot makes me happy – so very sweet.

And a shot from behind, always adorable.  Think the Janie & Jack clothing line needs any advertising shots (that’s the tag on the back of the shirts)?

This is the lollipopalooza I refer to in the title of this post.  How incredible are, #1, F (on the left)’s eyelashes, and #2, these two gorgeous boys and their smiling, lollipopped faces?

A quick grandma shot at the end of the session:

And lastly, a mama tackle.

jane mattson - April 27, 2010 - 9:49 pm

Great black and white of the boys–you really captured their specialness!

Rock and roll! (and a twinkling pond)

For these guys I have to start with one of the last shots we got – the kids doing their “ROCK AND ROLL!” pose, making their parents crack up even though they can’t see them…

And then go to the other end of the mood spectrum and show you this one… as the pond twinkles and big sister L tosses some food to the ducks.  Isn’t the shape of her hand as it comes down from the toss beautiful here? That and her right toe, up a bit in the back?

Just one more crazy family pic, because I love them:

And a bunny ears classic:

Mama and her baby boy, looking lovely by the pond:

And last of all, a great shot of the whole crew in the willow tree. Great to see you guys again!

Andrea - April 28, 2010 - 9:17 am

Thanks Jess. Another great shoot! I am so pleased. You got some really good ones considering how distracting the ducks in the pond were. Haha. You always make us feel so comfortal. Thanks again!

Heather Gadon - April 28, 2010 - 1:35 pm

Andrea – I love these pictures. The family one is a nice shot and the ones with Dave/Luci and you/Lincoln are really sweet. I can’t wait to see more of them.

Lucille - April 29, 2010 - 10:06 am

Andrea, The pictures are great!!! You all look so beautiful. I could see the Willow Tree as your Christmas Card. You can’t take a bad picture. Your father has to be proud.

These two have such fun

These guys were in the 11th spot of the day on my charity fundraiser Public Garden family mini-shoot day, and they were incredible.  It was fun for me to meet a new family – and these two kids have such a great time together.  That and the sun peeking through the 3pm trees here is awesome:

Aren’t they a good looking crew?

Tickling the neck:

And I love love this one of dad and his big boy:

Such wonderful grins here, and mom and dad in the background here are the best.

Share this on Facebook.

3 giggling shots and then one wise-eyed pair

I’ve been taking pictures of these guys since big brother G was only six months old, so it was fun to meet them in a new spot (the Boston Public Garden on 4/11 for my all-day charity mini-shoot day).  Look at these perfect grins:

Dimpled, smiling boy:

Giggly sweet girl:

And last of all, a non-traditional shot of the two kiddos as they look at me quizzically – don’t they both seem so wise here?  Wonderful as always to see you guys! Thanks for coming out.

Share this on Facebook.

Grumble, grumble… (kidding)

These two were insanely good at playing together and being subjects of awesome pictures.  So good that at one point I had to pose them as uncooperative subjects.  This picture seemed so unlike them, but it still kinda cracks me up.

They came with their mom for a 20 minute mini-session in the Public Garden on 4/11, and Mom asked me to just take pictures of the boys.  We slipped her into one shot at the end, though, you’ll see :)

Jumping together:

Their expressions here as they play with the bubbles are perfect – little T’s (on the right) lips out in a funny pout:

And a classic cutie shot:

And last, the sweetest mama hug.

sabrina - April 23, 2010 - 5:00 pm

Oh my goodness, these pictures of the boys are absolutely adorable! The pictures really capture their personalities. Adorable!

Susan - April 23, 2010 - 5:07 pm

These are awesome!! Love the one of them jumping and the one with mom!

Nichole - April 23, 2010 - 5:22 pm

Shell, these are of course GORGEOUS! Love how crisp the black and white is!

Betty (Mammie) - April 23, 2010 - 5:40 pm

I was there when these were taken – and they are even better than I remembered. Brought tears to my eyes – it so captures them and their individual personalities!!

Colleen - April 23, 2010 - 5:50 pm

Well of course you know I am biased when it comes to Jess . . . you can’t go wrong but these are so freaking cute! Of course she did have incredibly cute subjects!

Colleen - April 23, 2010 - 5:51 pm

Love these – they definitely show their personalities and I love that one of the three of you!

Denise moore - April 23, 2010 - 5:59 pm

Michelle, these photos are just gorgeous! My fave-the one of you and the boys!! made me want to cry!

Cathie - April 26, 2010 - 7:53 am

The boys pictures are awsome! I love the pouting one…The came out adoreable! I love the one of all 3 of you, such a loving picture!

Kristen gallagher - April 30, 2010 - 11:02 pm

Amazing pictures. I like the ones with Mom the best. Someday you’ll be so glad you have those pics Michelle. Beautiful boys and great pics.

christine - April 30, 2010 - 11:20 pm

Love the pictures!!!The boys look incredible in each one!!! love the bubble picture!!!!! Christine : )

Group hug

I know the classic family shot has everybody looking at the camera and smiling, but sometimes there’s a different kind of photo that steals my heart.  This is one of them – of my 1pm family from the Public Garden mini session on the 11th.  LOVE each and every one of these expressions.

But the classic shot has something going for it, too… Even baby K has a sweet smirk in this one:

A toss in the air from Dad:

And this next one needs to be printed big.  It tells such a story, places these girls in time, at a particular age… They’re growing up so fast (maybe I’m projecting – my girls are the same age difference, and my girls are growing up too fast!), and I love this as mom and dad look lovingly at their ladies.

Andrea Dugan - April 27, 2010 - 9:34 pm

What amazing pictures. Jess does such a great job. What a beautiful family. I am glad we are related. Haha.

Wahoo! Jump, baby :)

So these guys decided to just do kid pictures at their 11:30am Public Garden mini-session on the 11th – and the kids had a great time together.  I love little sister N giggling at her brothers’ antics here:

Aren’t they a handsome crew?

Yup.  Still adorable, crazy faces and all.

Zip!

Loved seeing you guys – so glad you made it!

First shot, last shot

I so often find that the first shot I take is a real keeper, something neat… but even more often, it’s the last one.  Here’s an example of a last shot that I love, love, love.  These three finished up their family photoshoot and headed to the water to peek at what was going on down there.

This one was one of the first few – see? Another keeper.

Or this one…? ;)

Now Mom and Dad in this family set me a challenge – something I don’t think I’ve been asked to do before.  They have bunches of photos of their kids together, but not many of the two of them, and even fewer of the two of them highlighted in a photo where their kids are also part of the shot.  So we had our shoot’s goal: a shot of mom and dad where the parents are highlighted, but the kids are in it, in the background almost…  I like this one, with their sweet hairbows…

Or this one – with a giggly foursome in the background.  You guys are adorable!

Bridget Dujardin - April 22, 2010 - 8:59 am

Maureen Connolly - April 22, 2010 - 9:09 am

Great pictures!!! We are another family that has thousands of pictures of the kids and a rare mom and/or dad sighting among the collection.

Joelle Dujardin - April 22, 2010 - 9:14 am

I love these photos! Everyone looks so relaxed, and the setting is great.

Loretta Berry - April 22, 2010 - 9:16 am

I think I like the one of you and Phil in the forefront and the girls with Joanna in the background.. Also like the B&W format….but the first one of the 3 girls looking in to the pond is special too! Enjoy

moe berry - April 22, 2010 - 9:18 am

FAVS:#1..One on the bench with all (but not looking like monkeys). #2 You and Philip in the foreground..kids in the back. #3. You,Phil and kids (standing).

Beth Anish - April 22, 2010 - 11:01 am

I love #’s 1, 2 and 5! What beautiful pics!! It’s a gorgeous setting, the family looks great, and I love the black and white.

Mom/Grammy - April 22, 2010 - 11:12 am

I like #’s 1,2 and 5.Even without seeing their faces{and noting later their hair}, I can tell Ailish is on the left in photo#1.She is closer to the water{more daring} and Jess captured all that,too.
Great pictures!!!

Mom/Grammy - April 22, 2010 - 11:12 am

Dana - April 22, 2010 - 11:22 am

Awesome photos! My favorite is the one of the two adults together with 4 silly kids in the background.

Anne - April 22, 2010 - 12:15 pm

I cannot even say how much I love the last picture – with you and Philip the center of the family and those lovely girls completing it. #2 is a wonderful family shot – how you ever got such sweet smiles on everyone at once is beyond me. :) Thanks for sharing!

Danielle - April 22, 2010 - 3:07 pm

I love #1 and #5. What a beautiful picture of Bridget & Philip with the kids and Joanna in the background. Its a keeper. Great location too :)

Jean-Paul - April 22, 2010 - 4:36 pm

I like picture 5, then 2, than 1. In that particular order. They are great!

Adrienne - April 22, 2010 - 8:03 pm

Bridget – it’s been too long, but great to see everyone is so happy! I like the last one the best… and the second one with you all on the park bench. Maybe we’ll see you in person this summer…

Jen Devlin - April 23, 2010 - 12:11 am

Precious!!! Loved them all, especially # 1 and #5. Embarrassed to even think how long its been since I’ve seen you and the kids in real life. Must get together next time I’m in town. Shoud be in June, Barb should be hatching just about then!

julianne - April 23, 2010 - 12:12 am

I agree with Jean~Paul about the order, but they are really all fantastic. All six of you look so happy!!

Nicole - April 24, 2010 - 8:55 pm

GREAT PIC… THE NICEST FAMILY EVER!

Lisa Wiedersheim - April 26, 2010 - 7:52 am

Bridget…all of them are great…I liove the one of the back of the 3 girls looking at the pond…but any family photo with the 6 of you is a great choice! Thanks for sharing…I was a way for a few days so didn’t get the link until today…Hope all is well with you! love, Lisa

Mara - April 29, 2010 - 1:57 pm

I love all the pictures but the the last picture is special. She captured perfectly a beautiful loving family.

Zooming around the Garden

This was my fourth mini-shoot on the 11th in the Public Garden – and these three were awesome.  Don’t you adore 3 year old L’s expression as he races his big brother and sister?

If you look quickly, this one almost looks like these guys are wading in the pond, doesn’t it? I don’t think their smiles would be quite so relaxed if they were.  It was 10:30am and there was still a bit of a chill in the air :)

Three cuties in a tree:

Cool dude, borrowing dad’s shades.

They genuinely had fun together, even when their sister squeezed them tight:

It was such fun seeing you guys, thanks for coming out for pictures, and thanks for supporting Ashmont Nursery School.

Stefani - April 22, 2010 - 11:50 am

Could this family be any cuter? The smiles of the children are amazing, they actually make you smile just from looking at the pictures. These pcitures show the love, care, and bond this family shares. This is what family is all about!

Carrie - April 22, 2010 - 2:04 pm

I love ALL of these photos–can see them hung in different size frames going up a staircase or in a hallway. It helps that the Harris family is simply beautiful! Such relaxed and happy smiles–even the posed shots look natural and loving.
My two favorites: #1–family shot in front of the pond and 2. the very last picture with Mom and daughter dancing and the boys jumping on Dad. Amazing!

Personal Project: four people, twelve times (third time)

Can I really post to my blog from my phone? We shall see.

Just got back from a wonderful week in SF visiting family. You know you love your family when it still constitutes a wonderful trip even though it included two trips to the emergency room (all is fine, my almost 1yr old’s scary fever is no longer scary) and a last minute (seriously, as we took the exit for “departures” at SFO) car barf…

But all that is neither here nor there. For now, here’s my third family pic in the annual (take one pic of the whole fam each month) project. Not sure how this one’ll look – had a friend snap it with my phone. I know, I know, I’m a consummate pro.
;)

How are you guys doing with this? Anybody else making the attempt out there?

Daddy and his girls

This Daddy and I have known each other for… oh no, seriously? (as I count on my fingers) this can’t be right.  23 years? What am I, filing for social security or something?  Well, we’ve been friends since middle school, and now he has a gaggle (well, three) beautiful, awesome girls making up his family.  This one’s my favorite, as the girls begin a chicken fight, unbeknownst to their parents…

They were my 10am family for the Public Garden shoot a few weekends ago, and I love the family shots we got.

This one should be printed huge and hung in the front hall or something…

Swing!

Handsome crew:

It was great to see you guys as always, thanks for the fun shoot!

These pics are great! Beautiful family, and I agree – a few of these need to be printed huge and hung!

Gorgeous, gorgeous family and beautiful photos! Love the pop of the print skirts/the shot from the back. What a fun day it looks like they had.

Thanks for the post. Jess does a great job catching my girls when I’m not looking.

You are a beautiful family and the pictures really capture that.

Awesome photos, Dre. The whole family looks great. I hope we can get together soon. It’s been too long.

Two lovely ladies at the Public Garden

This marks the first of a dozen or so Public Garden sessions from last weekend that I’ll be blogging over the next couple of weeks.  Sunday was such an incredible day for photos, I had such a great time getting photos of all these families playing together in the gorgeous Garden. This first mama and her daughter met me bright and early, at 9am, and the Garden was relatively deserted.  It was also still a bit chilly, but they were troopers.  I love this, by the water:

Beautiful big girl R, complete with funky flower headband:

Mama and her sweet on the Make Way for Ducklings statue together:

A little running around, Hancock tower in the background:

Flying in the air:

A girlie hug:

And lastly, some giggles by the gorgeous flowers.  Wonderful to see you guys!

I love some giggles by the gorgeous flowers.

You both are so beautiful. So hard to choose a favorite, they are all my favorites, the one with Ruby and the duck is very sweet and the two of you on the park bench is cuddly cute also!

Lisa - April 27, 2010 - 10:36 pm

Somehow these pictures capture your wonderful spirits — you two bring out the best in nature, because you have the best natures!

I really like the pictures with the duck. Also like the pics by the flowering tree.

There is nothing more beautiful than a Mother’s love for her child! That’s what I see in these wonderful photos.

Meg - April 28, 2010 - 6:36 am

eileen fabiano - April 29, 2010 - 8:58 pm

They are all terrific shots; I especially like the one of Barbara hugging Ruby…it’s the close up so there isn’t as much of the lovely Boston backdrop, but with these two beauties, who needs a skyline!!

Marianne Duggan - May 4, 2010 - 9:53 am

You both are simply gorgeous!!!!!
