This sweet boy got a sister

What a loving big 2 1/2 year old brother!

He just loved playing with her:

I love the sun pattern on the pillow here, and her perfect rolls and hands clasped under her chin :)

Such a handsome dude:

Had to grab a pic of just mama and her munchkins:

Daddy and his big boy got some time to check out the trash truck…

And Mama got some sweet girl time:

Wonderful to see you guys in your new (ok, maybe not so new anymore…) place!

Beautiful pictures of a gorgeous family! You must be very happy with how great everyone looks!

I don’t know this family but I simple HAVE to say: That dress is gorgeous. Simply beautiful. I love my two boys but that dress is the kind of thing that makes me so grateful to have a little niece to spoil. Truly lovely dress. Oh and kids and pictures too ;) Everything is beautiful.


Three plus one, perfecto

This is one of those super awesome fun families I’ve been photographing since their big girls were just teenie, diapered cuties.  Now everybody’s getting so big, even Mr. B is two now — wow.

And as a bonus this time we got a cousin visit, this little cutie joined us for playtime:

Some individual shots of everybody:

And I love the energy in this one – so much going on (mama sisters in back)…

The boys having a pow-wow over bubbles:

Big girl bubble, beautiful gaze:

And a proud big girl with a bubble of her own:

Oh, wait, one last cute face from this sweetheart – known as “fish-face”, I think?

Best expressions… pursed lips, 3 out of 4 :)

Great to see you guys!

Sisters again!

It feels like it’s been a while since I took pictures of sisters (I’ve been in brothers mode for a few weeks), and I have to say I adored these guys last weekend.  Even though it was a rainy New England spring day, we had loads of fun playing inside.  Little sister O was born when big sister H was just a week shy of being 2 years old, so even though they’re not “two under two” anymore, they can still have membership in my elite club :)

This one cracks me up to no end.

This next shot just hollers mama with her two sweethearts to me – as O goes up in the air and H rolls around on the couch.  The energy in the whole picture is just so cool.

Don’t  you love O’s hand on H’s cheek?

More energy…


Loved getting to know you guys!

Receives these photos just before fathers day. What a way to start the day! They are just so much fun to be around. Sometimes you just wish they would stay this young forever.We are so lucky to be part of such a beautiful family.

Leigh Janczak - July 6, 2011 - 12:22 pm

Two beautiful girls for two beautiful parents!
What treasures, all of them!

Beautiful pictures of two very beautiful little girls!

Janna - July 6, 2011 - 4:16 pm

These are by far the two cutest little girls I’ve ever seen!

Kathleen - July 6, 2011 - 4:41 pm

Oh, my! As the mother of two little girls, I have a soft spot for sister shots. The pic of O looking up at H as they are hugging is priceless. Your girls will love looking back at these pictures when they are older and fighting over who used up all the hairspray.

Karen - July 7, 2011 - 12:55 pm

These are adorable – you’ve got some super-cute kids!! The one w/ Hannah crawling after Olivia is my fav.

Two gorgeous boys under two

I met these handsome boys two weekends ago, big 22 month old brother P, and little three week old brother N; and I was so impressed by how much attention P was lavishing on N.  I can only imagine the buddies they’re going to become in the next few years. It’s so exciting for me to get to see the beginning of a relationship like theirs :)

They’ve joined the ranks with many other fantastic families in my two-under-two club.  When I get to do a two-under-two shoot I am always excited for the challenge and ready to roll with it.  Never know what’s going to happen!  These guys were just wonderful.  I think this was my favorite moment, though:

Except maybe when P wanted to share his car with N:

We even got a moment of a smile from little N!

This one is just such a sweet art shot with his little hand hiding his face, I had to share…

Building a block tower with Daddy:

It was such a pleasure meeting you guys!


Brothers, just beginning

When I first arrived to see these two brothers last weekend, almost 3 month old Z was exhausted.  But that meant we got this picture, which I am just in love with… (avoiding ending my sentence with a preposition by using ellipses… my middle school grammar teacher would be horrified)

But then when he perked up, big (almost 3 year old) brother J insisted on sharing his favorite Fire Truck book:

A few of just the big man first, as he concentrates 0n his car:

Leaping into a pile of pillows:

Or tossing a friend into the fray:

And now, introducing Z:

Daddy, look at ME :)

Great to see you guys again!

Beautiful photos of a beautiful family. I love that they are so natural and are of little ones doing what little ones do. Those are the moments that will make you smile when they are all grown up.

Handsome brothers and their new baby sister

This seating arrangement was the brothers’ idea – isn’t it great?  Little sister T loved it too :)  Biggest brother A is eleven, middle brother N is eight (turning nine very soon) and new sister T was just six weeks old when we took these pictures a couple of weeks ago.

She gets loads of love from the boys.

Much cuddling and playing…

She won’t want for attention in her family, I bet!

Smiling with her pretty mama:

And Daddy making it all better:

It was wonderful meeting you all, thank you for having me!

THX for sharing

There’s just something about two

I made a collage of Annie pictures when she was two – and I look at it framed over my desk almost every day.  I adore two years old.  There’s something magical, hilarious, brilliant, squishy and so lovable about two.

My big girl Annie was a beauty back then (she’s five and a half now) – here’s her collage from 2007:

And now for my Sadie girl’s 2 year old collage. I love you, my sweet.  Thank you for making me laugh every day.

A lady joins the boys

It’s been a few years since I saw these guys – and since I saw them they’ve added a lovely lady to their brood.

She’s such a fun addition.

Don’t get me wrong, the boys still have a blast just the two of them…

But it’s fun to see how much they crack her up, too.

Sometimes everyone doesn’t quite jump at the same time.  But that’s OK, because this is pretty fantastic, too…

So fun to see you guys!

This Grandmother loves every photo…

Willard Farnham - August 1, 2011 - 9:08 pm

Great pictures… them all

A few years later, a few degrees warmer

Back in the winter of 2008, I took pictures of these guys for the first time.  It was snowy out, everyone was chilly – but absolutely adorable – of course.  Now here we are starting up the summer of 2011 – YAY JUNE!! – and I got to come back and play with these guys again.

In that same little windowseat we used a few years ago – but now look how big!


Double wheeeee

Love how A is all bright and glowing in her dress as she swings into a patch of sunlight here:

Wonderful to see you guys again!
