Tag Archives: 20 minute mini
I’ve had a handful of calls recently about maternity photoshoots (yay for summer babies!) and in more than one of the conversations with the mamas-to-be, we got talking about how maternity photos are just so gorgeous, but when you’re hoping to do photos after your baby is born as well, sometimes it’s hard to justify the expense of doing maternity photos. So then I started thinking – what if I offered a maternity minishoot at home? We could just do a quick little 20 minutes… get loads of pictures…
Lo and behold… my at home maternity minishoot was born
Look how well we did!
20 minutes of beautiful moments – remembering this time in their lives. Don’t you think it was SO worth it? And they get a free framed 8×10 print as part of the package.
Which photo should they choose?
(Oh, if you’re curious, I have lots more information about my new at home 20 minute maternity minishoots on this new page of my website.)
In the 20 minutes we got to be indoors and outdoors, two outfits (it was easy to change because she was at home)… just a really sweet way to remember this time before they became a family of three.
Thank you guys so much for letting me pop over and document you guys at our little maternity minishoot. I’m really excited to meet this sweet new babe in July.
This is exciting, you guys. I’m swapping out my vendor for my photobooks and I think you’re going to really dig these new books. Here’s the photobooks page on the (new! improved!) BBP website with all the information/pricing.
Of course I can always make you one of the old style of books to match the books you’ve been making with me for years, but new stuff is fun so I want you to check these out.
Look how elegant. Linen covered. Imprinted with your title.
Wait, what’s the Annual Plan? (Two shoots within a nine month period, one at home and one as a minishoot on location somewhere. My Annual Plan #2 and #4 come with one of these books included.)
The layouts for the new books are awesome, and they lay flat so I can make photos spread across two pages (yes, this is COOOOOOOOL).
More info about the Annual Plan is here, and all the coffeetable book details are here.
I met these guys at Turner’s Pond a few weeks ago and I keep meaning to blog their session – so sorry for the delay! I just adore Turner’s as a minishoot location – not only because it’s close to where I live, but also because the backdrop is just perfection for minis. Parking is easy and it really couldn’t be more beautiful, any time of year.
But without further ado… here’s Ms. A and her fantastic parents:
I met the biggest sister in this family when she was just one, back in early 2005, when I’d only been a professional photographer for two years. And now she’s almost a TEENAGER too…
I’ve loved seeing these guys throughout the years as they’ve grown.
This gorgeous older brother here was one of my first photoshoots from the fall of 2003 – he was six months old when I met him and I’d only been doing photography professionally for about half of a year at that point. He was divine and adorable back then, and still is. His beautiful sister blows me away as well. I love these guys so much for support over the years! So many photoshoots and so much fun watching them grow.
You know, I take pictures of a lot of teenagers because I’ve been doing what I do for twelve years now, which means tons of the original “babies” of Boston Baby Photos are heading into their teens now. I love seeing all those kids every year as they grow. But you know what else is really fun? Meeting new families who have teenagers! I love the fun of meeting new people, and we can relax and have fun right away with older kids.
That was the case with these guys – their elder daughter is thirteen and their younger is ten, and the most important thing for these guys was making sure we got great photos with their parents.
That we can do! But first we needed to grab a photo of these cute parents.
Thanks so much for coming to meet me for a minishoot in the Public Garden. I loved getting to know you guys.
These fall minishoots are flying by! I’ve shot 13 families so far in the Public Garden, and there’s about that many more left to shoot – so much family fun to document :)
Wonderful to see these guys again, especially because I hadn’t yet meet their newest addition. Fabulous, fun sisters!
I met these guys in the Public Garden for a minishoot back in April – this was their eleventh (!!) photoshoot with me in the last ten years. We met back in March of 2005 for their big girl A’s one year old photoshoot. That doesn’t make me feel old or anything, don’t worry.
And I just LOVE seeing families grow. These minishoots are a great way to keep up the rhythm of photos – and guess what, peeps – I have openings in Saturday, May 9th’s minishoot! I never have openings, this is big news – so if you have any interest in grabbing a spot in my last 2015 spring Public Garden Minishoot (my next mini will be in late Sept/early Oct there), check out the open times at this link.
But without further ado, here are these three cuties:
Wonderful to see you guys, as always. Yay for a decade of photos!
Woo-hoo! We did it, guys, we made it through Boston’s ridiculousness yet again. Well done, peeps. And as a prize for all of us, we got yesterday and Saturday’s weather. Yay!
Saturday was divine in the Public Garden for my first of two minishoot days this spring. (More info about joining me for the May 9th one is at this link.) These guys started me off with a bang for the 9am session. I loved seeing them so much. Had to show you the color shots in the blog today because I need some color in my day, and the sun was just so delicious and bright for us. Not to mention I’m just so excited that we’re back to doing outdoor photos with something other than white in the background.
I’ve been photographing these two since they were mere babes. Taller every year, I tell ya!
A bit of a throwback post here, but we may as well. It’s so cold and snowy out there today it’s nice to think about those warmer fall days. I’ve been photographing these three girls since they were each teenie tiny newborn girlies, and I just adore seeing how they’re growing.
Really fun to see you guys as always!
Look at these twinkling eyes! I loved meeting this guy for the first time at my late October Public Garden Minishoot – he and his mama had such fun playing together in the trees and the leaves there. I love it when we’re able to document a soon-t0-be older sibling – it’s a time of life when there’s so much change about to happen… I love being able to spend some time focusing on #1 for a bit. (But maybe that’s just me, speaking as a first child – hehe…)
I’ve been taking photographs of these two since they were little teenie newborns – what cuties!
I love what a great time they have together and with their mama:
This fall I shot 26 families over the course of two days in the Boston Public Garden, and I’m realizing this is one of the first few that I’ve blogged for you guys. Sorry the blog is a little sparse these days, I’m only blogging and Facebook-album-ing on request, which means there are fewer posts going up.
But here are two amazing older kiddos. I took photos of them when they were babies, and now they done gone and growed up on me :) I loved getting a chance to see them again, it always makes me happy to pop back into children’s lives for a glimpse now and again.
And the colors in the Public Garden during my minishoot days this fall were AMAZING, so I had to blog this in color for you.
See what I mean?
A few of these just cracked me up. The brother creeping up…
Post head-bonk – OW!
Wonderful to see you guys again, thanks so much for meeting up with me!
You may have noticed an air of sadness in faces around Boston this week. That’s because five amazing people are leaving on Saturday, headed to their next adventure. They’ve graced Dorchester with their kindness, their energy, their love and their smiles for many years now, and it’s time for them to move on to the next big thing.
I didn’t blog many (any?) of my spring minishoots this year – (I’ve been working on – eek, coming soon! – a redesign of the BBP website and it’s been gobbling up my blogging time), but these guys met me in the Public Garden in late May for photos, and I adored running around and playing with them there. I normally blog in b&w (and always provide everyone all their photos in both b&w and color), but this shoot needed to be blogged in color. I’m sure you can see why. These five were just bursting with COLOR.
We love you! Y’all come back now, you hear?
Big hugs, guys.
