Big squeeze

These guys were such good sports – we zipped outside in the snow for a couple of shots, and they decided to brave the cold, but a good hug kept them warm. I love how long E’s hair has gotten since last year!

I swear, E looks just like a Gap model in this getup, doesn’t she? I love it.

And then last year, here’s E watching her mom waving from outside the window :)

And when E was just a little munchkin, we met back at the Janie & Jack photoshoots I used to do at the Natick Mall. Wasn’t she gorgeous, even then?

Holiday wishes

Doesn’t J look like she’s making an xmas wish? I love the faraway look in her eye. I know I keep saying this, but she’s gotten so big since the last time I took her picture, back in April! Her sister S is below…

I’m a total sucker for eyelash pictures – I adore them. And S has such great ones, I love this moment — it’s so quiet.

Here are the beauties together, back in early April.

I almost forgot to include an oldie but a goodie – here’s S at her Janie & Jack photoshoot back in the Spring of ’05, trying on mom’s glasses. :) For more info on this “studio style” photography, see info about my bi-annual Jimmy Fund Studio Days here.

Outside and inside time

Even with a chill in the air, we got outside for a few shots with the whole fam playing. This cutie loved being tossed around.

Inside, quiet time is such a wonderful time to capture. I love getting a chance to do inside and outside pictures – getting a chance to see different sides a little one is the best way to do it, I think.

Lila Guide Launch Party

This past weekend I was the LilaGuide.com Launch Party’s photographer at Together in Motion in Arlington. It was a fun event, with goodie bags for all. The LilaGuide.com is an online resource for moms; a “word-of-mouth survival guide for Boston”.

The kids all had a blast running around in Together in Motion‘s indoor playspace (it’s a great place to play if you’re near Arlington!).

Gorgeous boy

When I got to A’s house, he had just had a nice warm bath and was getting toweled off – I had to grab a quick shot before he got dressed. Too much!

Then we got to go outside and play (and Mom and Dad went back a bit to let A have a little quiet time with me). Look at his pensive gaze.

Two new brothers, and some puppy love

C was such a sweet big brother to his two tiny (5 week old) brothers. I do love the humor of this shot, though – the expression on Mom’s face as one of the boys did what boys do is pretty priceless (notice her wet hand and pant leg).

This was back in the fall of 2006, when C was just 11 months old. I love his huge smile and spikey hair.

Now this one was from this week’s session – and only true dog lovers can understand. It’s just a dog-lover thing to do: let your pup give your new babe some love, too. We got a photo of this little guy’s older brother with S the dog just a few years ago, too – see below.

And this is big brother C, back in 2005 (he was only 10 weeks old) at his first photoshoot with his beloved pup, S.

Nice smiles!

I took pictures of the gorgeous smiler on the right a few years back at one of my Pottery Barn photoshoots, and then her cutie pie brother came to my Jimmy Fund benefit day last fall… and now I finally got them together. This was a chilly one, but they were sports when I snuck over and grabbed their hats off their heads for this shot. Thanks for grinning at me, guys :)

Nothing beats run-around time.

Here’s a shot from A’s Jimmy Fund studio session this past fall. More info about studio sessions (I just do them 2x a year, to benefit the Jimmy Fund) can be found here.

And here’s big sister A, back in the fall of 2005. This one was one of the Pottery Barn Kids photoshoots I used to do. I stopped doing them because I don’t have time anymore, but it used to be a great way to get to know new families! Exhausting days, but wonderful people, and adorable kidlets.

3 years of adorable

I have so much fun with these guys, every time. And now that J’s gotten so big (see below for earler photos with them) we were really able to have some fun. But the fact is, these guys are just adorable, adorable, adorable.

It was September of ’06 when I got to meet E’s little brother, J. We also spent some time playing frisbee outside. I love the light and the way these guys are standing in this one. Really simple, but for some reason I just love it.

We did have some quality time with just E and J together. J looks like he’s really loving it. ;)

Back in the fall of ’04, when she was 16 months old, I got to take some more photos of E. I just love her smile so much – it’s infectious. I can’t look at this picture without smiling.

Back when E was just 10 months old (an age I just love for photos!) in the summer of 2004, I met her for her first photoshoot. I forgot about this shot – I love it… her perfect little mouth… And now it’s fun to know J, and see how much he looks like she did.
