Dedham MA Family of Twins Photographer – Star Wars, and can I get a HEY-OH?

All hail the amazingly creative cousin who’s a whiz with the knitting and crochet needles! Everybody say HEY-O!

All hail the sister and bro-in-law who are just a few WEEKS away from making it to their twins’ first birthday. Everybody say HEY-O!

And all hail a weekend of costumes – because nothing, nothing beats Halloween weekend when you take pictures of children for a living.

So I’m going to have to dedicate this post to a family of Star Wars nuts who are near and dear to my heart. I’ll share some additional costumed cuties on the blog as well, but I’m gonna focus on one team of three cuties who made me smile a lot today. I mean, we’ve got eleven month old E going as Snow Warrior Leia. And her twin brother J? Yup, I think you’re picking up what I’m putting down. He’s going as X-Wing Fighter Pilot Luke. Obvi. I mean, guys, they’re twins. Get it? And we’re talking a three year old big sister who INSISTED on being Darth Vadar. Because that’s how they roll.

And then, once they’d decided on their costumes, in swept the magical cousin who wields her knitting needle (a.k.a. light saber… <– see what I did there?) with incredible skill, and they were off and running.

All this combined meant we got this:jjehalloween_ellieblog

But wait! That’s not all!

Because it’s Halloween weekend! I have to show you more. Sometimes on this kind of weekend you just run into a fairy princess:

See, it’s just the best weekend. The twins agree. New hats #ftw!

Scituate MA Family Photographer – K&C go crazy

So their mom was bummed when I showed up and they’d already set up the bounce house for this guy’s 3rd birthday party. She was worried about it being an eyesore in the photos. Never! We must enjoy! Time to BOUNCE!

BBP at Hyde Park Pediatrics

I love hanging my photos in Boston area pediatricians’ offices. You guys can be my eyes out there – when you go see your pediatrician, peek in the Newborn Waiting Room. Do they have great artwork in there? Do they want me to put together a proposal to improve their newborn waiting room walls? Dudes, that’s what I DO! Find me a pediatrician who wants a new wall display, I’ll give you a free photoshoot. Win, win.

Last winter I began a project to hang artwork on the walls of the Newborn Waiting Room area at Hyde Park Pediatrics, and after many months of planning, photo selection, printing and hanging, the display looks fantastic.

If you’re a patient over there, peek your head into the newborn waiting room and check out all those cute Boston Baby Photos faces!

Here’s the left side of the wall:

And here’s the right side (although the center color photo isn’t mine):

Edit: Here are some straight-on shots, in case you have a hard time seeing the adorableness…

Fab, right?

 

Arlington MA Home Newborn Session – the most perfect cheeks!

This sweet love has the most delicious cheeks ever – I just adore them. As I was working on these last night I started using my new BBP-only Instagram to give sneak peeks, bit by bit. It was really fun. If you’re an instagram person, follow @bostonbabyphotos to see what I’m up to, more real-time than ever before. I’ve also become something of an insane #tbt person, so if you follow, your feed might have some fun throwbacks on Thursdays. :)

We started with this one, which I just love for so many reasons. The back of Miss S’s hair, her adorable little neck roll, and then of course there are her parents’ expressions.

Then we moved along to this peek – there is nothing in the world like baby fingers:

And of course you guys know I love a newborn smile. When paired with a mama smile? Even better.

And then we had to introduce those eyes… and of course her perfect cheeks. Staring adoringly at daddy:

The expression here just gets me, and the belly roll… delicious.

And would you believe this little lady is only eight weeks old? Look how she holds her head up!

And then of course there comes the moment when exhaustion sets in, and you have to rest on daddy’s shoulder:
