Six photoshoots in five years

This is #8 in my series of Family Retrospective Videos – for more information about this project or to sign up to be added to the list of families who wants one, click this link and scroll down the page through the previous posts back to the first or second one (where I describe it in more detail).

I got to meet these guys five years ago because their cousins had been doing photos with me for a few years already at that point, and they wanted in on the fun. I’ve adored watching them grow.

And without further ado, here’s a 3 1/2 minute video of Brady, Nora and Finn’s family with photos from six photoshoots over the last five years:

Seven photoshoots in the last decade

I met this wonderful family ten summers ago, before I was a mama, when I’d been a baby photographer for just one year. They’ve grown up with Boston Baby Photos. What fun!

And without further ado, here’s a 3 1/2 minute video of Eliza, Joseph and Patrick’s family with photos from seven photoshoots over the last ten years:

Four of ’em, daring to be true

Around the holidays last year one of my sister’s best high school friends called me and said that she wanted to give a group photoshoot to three of her friends from high school who’d all had babies in the last few years. I got excited right then – couldn’t wait to make this one happen; and this past Sunday it did.

Nothing beats four little mini-Miltonites playing in the water.

This one reminds me of their mamas in the dining hall not too long ago.

 

So in age order, we had… Ms. J

Mr. G:

Ms. J:

And Mr. M:

Rock band.

So much fun! Love love love.

8 month old fun

These guys got a gift certificate for a photoshoot from their baby’s fabulous godparents, and I was so excited to come document this little 8 month old guy and his kitty at home last weekend. What a perfect little dude.

Kitty friend.

Nothing beats a little applesauce.

And your favorite and mine… Sophie made an appearance!

Wonderful to meet you guys!

The third two year old brother

This is the third time I’ve visited these guys, and we always do it when one of the brothers turns two. What a fun tradition! I love punctuating childhoods like this. What fabulous crew.

Wonderful to see you guys! Hope we can keep up the every-two-years tradition! Easier to have me come back for everybody’s eight year old pictures than to keep adding two year olds to the family ;)

Chris Brown - July 8, 2014 - 2:19 pm

Wow, what fabulous pictures. They really capture the boys and their spirits wonderfully, just like the photographer did with Colin and then, Owen. Great family.

Kerry - July 8, 2014 - 2:23 pm

Jess is amazing with children and these photos are the proof! Thank you for another successful session.

Chrissy - July 8, 2014 - 2:31 pm

Wow, I always love seeing pictures of these boys! And all the pictures I see are wonderful! Looks like it was a fun day with a super fun family!

Christina - July 8, 2014 - 8:49 pm

Amazing pictures again of this beautiful family ;).

Kristen - July 9, 2014 - 6:25 pm

Great pictures of the Brown Boys.

Brian - July 9, 2014 - 6:26 pm

The boys look great.

Cathy - July 9, 2014 - 6:27 pm

The pictures of the boys are wonderful.

Twins in their tutus

You know, the thing is, if you’re 15 months old, and you have a tutu, there’s really no reason not to wear it. These ladies were on the same page about it. And I did what I always do with one year old twins – I took too many pictures and adore all of them way too much. The expressions on these girls’ faces were just fantastic, moment to moment.

Right?

Thank you for having me visit three times this year! I love Baby’s First Year packages, because I really get to know these little ones as they grow. It sure doesn’t feel like it’s been a year, that’s for sure. Happy Birthday (a little late) girlies!

 

A black cat and a brown dog. Perfection.

These guys booked a minishoot this spring but then had some schedule conflicts (I actually can’t even remember what happened – I feel like maybe there was a kiddo illness in there, or some yucky weather event… it’s all a blur this time of year) but as we tried and tried to reschedule it became clear that it’d make lots of sense to upgrade to an in home shoot instead.

So I was thrilled to join them at their home this past weekend for the final pictures at their Massachusetts home — they’re moving momentarily to Wisconsin! The movers were coming just two days after we did this shoot (what a mellow mama to let us do pictures in the house mere days before they packed everything! I’d be so stressed out…) and it was so much fun to go with the kids to their rooms to play a bit and document their favorite places and spaces and things.

I am always in love with a good, juicy dog licking picture:

And not to be outdone – a perfect kitty smooch picture:

Mustaches made of sister hair, of course:

Shooting hoops in the bedroom…

J is an amazing gymnast; she showed me so many tricks:

Boy’s best friend begging to join the outdoor fun:

And of course, last but not least, the requisite cheesehead shots :)

Just wonderful to see you guys! Have a fantastic move, best of luck with everything :)

13 days old and check out that grin

Look at these eyes, don’t you just love them? This little guy was 13 days old the other day when I came over for some pictures, and he was just a dream.

And I have to admit I always love a newborn smile – this one was perfection.

Six months old and just so squeezable

I am so honored to have been able to document this little guy at six months old. His parents got a photoshoot gift certificate from dad’s sister when mama was still pregnant, and they decided to wait and do the shoot at six months. What a fun age!

This little guy just loved his toes:

0936

And his rice cereal :)

0786

And look at those twinkling eyes and that smile!

0754

He just loves his daddy…

0712

And mama kisses are perfect, always.

0920

0763

Even Chase, their first baby, did a little posing.

0793

Just love Chase in the back of this one.

0838

And a headshot for Mr. C in case he ever needs to do any modeling…

0977

Silly daddy…

0848

There’s something so quiet and sweet about this profile one.

0761

Aunt Meg, giver of photoshoots and cuddles :)

0955

And when tiredness (or was it an incoming tooth?) overtook him, a quiet moment with mama helped.

0867

I just adored seeing you guys and meeting J – he’s just amazing! xo

Six photoshoots in seven years

And without further ado, here’s a 3 minute video of Jack, Andrew and Jamie’s family with photos from six photoshoots over the last seven years:

Fuzzy-headed freedom baby

This guy has had his fair share of time in the hospital these first six months of his life, but he didn’t even mention it in our photoshoot. He was an absolute dream. His parents call him Freedom Baby, and he’s exactly that these days: free to just wiggle around and be a big six month old boy! Look at those great strong legs :)

He was just absolutely fantastic.

 

Open heart surgery conquered!

I was so thrilled to go back and see this wonderful cutie pie last week. You’d never believe this guy had open heart surgery just nine weeks before this photoshoot. I mean, he’s amazing! He’s a complete hero, and also an absolutely gorgeous, bouncing, happy-as-can-be six month old guy. Here he is, in all his fun-loving, six month old glory!

ONE!

One year ago today I had the most amazing experience of my life: I got to be in the room with my baby sister and her fabulous husband while she pushed a person into the world. And what a person. Words are not really my thing – I never feel like I’m telling a story right, like I’m doing it justice. (Pictures, as you might guess, are more my thing.) Suffice it to say the addition of this person into my life, my kids’ lives, our family’s life – it’s been the best thing I could ever imagine. Welcome to ONE, little sweet girl.

She’s off and running.

Oh, but wait, the eyelashes?? Check ’em out. Insanity.

Hunkered down with Arkansan Daddy in the homeland:

Pondering the Pacific.

xoxox and many MOOOOORRRRE!
