Category Archives: with big brother or sister
Just a couple of years ago I was taking photos of this big two year old girl for her Baby’s First Year series… so imagine how excited I was to hear that she’s going to be a big sister. Her mama told me that she loves to snuggle, so we knew we had to document that before her little sibling arrives…
And document we did!
This photo just melts me. Absolutely melts me.
See you in a few short weeks when baby makes four!
How many babies, Jo? How many?
I love her left hand here – seems like she’s expressing some additional thoughts about the upcoming changes in her life (even if only subconsciously?). It’s gonna be pretty fabulous, kiddo.
Big sister took a minute to tell the babies a little secret here:
And look out, kid, or someone might tickle you…
And we know you know how to tickle right back:
Love this crew of five more than I can explain.
I know, I know, I always blog my b&w pictures – but I always show everybody all their photos in both color and b&w… and sometimes a photoshoot just blows my mind with its color. Usually it happens with older children, when we’ve been outdoors and running… and this 4 year old dude is no exception. I’ve been taking his pictures since he was mere weeks old – can’t believe he’s FOUR!
I love going where families love to go – these guys live in Scituate by the water, so we were able to start at home, play in the sprinkler and around the yard, and then head over to the beach for some quick lighthouse / beach fun pictures. I don’t consider myself a typical beach photographer – we get different kinds of playing pictures at the beach, not so posey… but the blue sky that day (a week or so ago) just made me so happy. I think it did the same for 4 yr old K and his hermit crab friends. Can’t wait to meet your new little one in a few short months!
Bang for your buck – that’s what I call this. You visited the blog, thought you might get to see pictures of a gorgeous, round, happy belly, and lo and behold, you get two. How lucky are you?
My sister (belly on the right) and brother-in-law are expecting my niece to arrive momentarily (pinch me, I know, right?) and I’m finally getting the time to blog all these belly pictures. Quick before babies arrive! The fun part of this is that one of her bestest friends in the whole wide world is ALSO expecting a baby girl, just a few weeks later.
Since these two girls will inevitably be best friends and in each other’s weddings in a few decades, I was excited be the first to officially photograph them together. We also invited daddies and siblings (be they human or canine, it’s all good), and got piles of pictures of bellies, in all sorts of situations. My favorite, you ask? I think I might like big brother H holding up the bellies in the last shot. But there are loads of fun ones in here. Enjoy :)
You know what’s fun? Showing up at a family’s home after I’ve done maternity pictures for them, and getting to meet the little person who’d been inside that belly. Even cooler? When I get to do it again a second time. I got to visit with 20 month old E this past weekend because his baby sister is arriving soon, and I’d taken pictures of his mama’s belly when he was in there, too. Super cool.
There are so many here that I love – when he lifts his shirt to show us his belly… (we seem to be discussing bellies a lot around here, wanna see mine?), his kiss with his mama, his hand and his feet and his hugs on her belly… the list goes on. Enjoy :)
Wonderful to see you guys again!
It’s been just about two years since I saw this little South End cutie for his (maternity and then) newborn pictures. And now I got to come back and visit for some more belly pictures of his pretty mama and fun daddy, quick before they move out of their place. Can’t wait to meet #2!
There’s something added into this classic shot… wonder if you can spy it…
Love that tongue :)
Such a pleasure to run around with you guys – thanks for having me visit. See you in a few weeks! Yay!
These two little girls are waiting, waiting, waiting soooo patiently for their little sister or brother to arrive. And I’m going to try a blog post with a lot fewer words. Let’s see how this goes. I feel like the pictures tell enough of a story…
Wait, but just one more thing. Isn’t this a neat family shot, and do you believe Ali (mom) is due in 3 weeks, but still lifting 3 year old L high in the sky? Putting the rest of us to shame, girlie!
These guys were my 3rd Public Garden mini-shoot last Sunday, and I didn’t even know mom was pregnant before we met up there… so exciting! She looked incredible, and big boy B was adorable and ready to have a great time running his little 16 month old legs around the Garden.
The weeping willows tickle the nose when you nuzzle up to them, you know. The things you only figure out when you’re a toddler…
Tickle those toes!

Congratulations again on your impending arrival, guys!

Three years ago, I took pictures of this little guy in his pretty mama’s belly, and it was so much fun for me to get to see them again, but this time to celebrate his little brother or sister’s impending arrival. Love this tender moment:
A PERFECT circle. No joke. No Photoshop trickery here.
Asking baby questions:
A cuddle for mama:
Handsome, handsome boy.
Pretty mama by the window:
All hands on deck!
Love the wedding photo in the background. Looks like this should be titled “The Story of a Family”
Sweet baby smooches:
And lastly, palming the basketball belly. Wonderful to share this time with you guys again, thanks so much for calling!

This big handsome boy loved showing me his skills with a crayon this past weekend:
And giving his dog some love. I adore this pup’s expression here. It’s so patient, but yet so knowing… As if he’s saying, “Really, guys? Really?” Reminds me of a photo I took a few years back of my little girl and our cat.
He took a bit of time playing stickers with his momma:
And then we went for a walk. I love the light through the trees here:
Played a bit of t-ball:
Doesn’t mom look gorgeous here?
Big boy J was so obliging to turn and show me his nice smile while he ran :)
Giving mom some love:
It was really great to meet you guys!

I love it when families I’ve known for a while let me come back and experience a pregnancy through pictures. I started taking pictures of big five year old A when she was just a year old, and got to do teenie baby pictures of two 1/2 year old R when she was just a little one… and now I got to get excited with the family as they await #3:
I love this of the three cuties:
And the two big girls:
The whole crew. Wonderful to see you guys again – best of luck with the new arrival, I can’t wait to meet him/her! :)
I met these guys about a year ago when we did A’s first photoshoot when she was just about a year old. And then they moved to Philly :( But then they planned a visit and we got to do photos again! Can’t wait to meet #2 when they visit again next year.
All your photos will be ready in the next few days. It was great seeing you guys last Friday and I can’t wait to show you all the fun shots. It was definitely worth the early drive!
