He’s a mover and a shaker

This guy is moving around like it’s his job.  Nine months old, and nothing stops this guy.  He’s just perfection, and I loved seeing him again for another shoot from his Baby’s First Year package.

You really can’t beat the daddy squishing face moments, or the super happy reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar with mama.  I do love the nibbling Sophie the giraffe one, though, and my very favorite might be the one on the bed as he laughs at both his parents.

Really fun to see you guys again!

Such a classic Boston one year old photo shoot

I love shoots like this one! We got to go walking around the North End and grabbed so many classic Boston shots in the process. Without looking at the tags at the bottom of the post, how many Boston landmarks can you spot?

Oh wait, but first, let me introduce you to our little birthday boy star of the show.  Mr. C – with his raised eyebrow here, enjoying a puff snack before we headed out:

Look at those big steps :)


Mama tickles:

Look who’s walking:


And after our walk, we came home to a Grandpa…

and Grandma visit!

Look who’s UNO!  Happy birthday, sweet boy :)  So honored to document the actual day.

My little brother is hiLARious

This is one of my FAVORITE pictures I’ve ever taken. Love. Love. Love.

Met these cuties last weekend, when what was supposed to be a rainy day cleared up for us and allowed us to play both inside and outside.

Inside we got to do fun things like play on the bed…

Play the piano…

Chat with bear friends…

And color some princess books.

Big grins inside:

And big grins outside:

And of course we had to play on the swings a bit outside.

Wonderful to meet you guys, thanks for having me come out!

Beautiful pictures. Well done!

Rolls, rolls, rolls, and even a DIMPLE!

Last Tuesday, just when I thought all I needed to get through the day were some squishy arm and leg rolls, this little ball of awesome showed up and killed me with his dimple. Come ON now with the cuteness.

Now I won’t bore you with my color commentary, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.  Let me just say… delicious.

Wonderful to see you guys!

Absurdly cute! Nice work, all around… baby, photographs, the whole package. I’m a big-time fan. :)

Jean diapers and ONE!

This handsome guy is turning one this week, so we had to take pictures to commemorate the occasion. I got to see him when he was just super tiny for his newborn pictures, and again when he was six months old – and now look at him!

His mom got those hilarious jean diapers Huggies or someone is making these days, and they made for some great shots :)

Mama and her sweet boy – I love this one:

The water table is his favorite place – his expression can’t be beat:


And they got him a cupcake for the birthday, love these three in a row, telling the story of the experience a bit…

Awesome to see you guys again!

Sisters again!

It feels like it’s been a while since I took pictures of sisters (I’ve been in brothers mode for a few weeks), and I have to say I adored these guys last weekend.  Even though it was a rainy New England spring day, we had loads of fun playing inside.  Little sister O was born when big sister H was just a week shy of being 2 years old, so even though they’re not “two under two” anymore, they can still have membership in my elite club :)

This one cracks me up to no end.

This next shot just hollers mama with her two sweethearts to me – as O goes up in the air and H rolls around on the couch.  The energy in the whole picture is just so cool.

Don’t  you love O’s hand on H’s cheek?

More energy…


Loved getting to know you guys!

Kathleen - July 6, 2011 - 4:41 pm

Oh, my! As the mother of two little girls, I have a soft spot for sister shots. The pic of O looking up at H as they are hugging is priceless. Your girls will love looking back at these pictures when they are older and fighting over who used up all the hairspray.

Karen - July 7, 2011 - 12:55 pm

These are adorable – you’ve got some super-cute kids!! The one w/ Hannah crawling after Olivia is my fav.

What a gorgeous, wide open smile

Don’t you just love how this little sweetheart opens her mouth so wide to smile for us?  With her cute little tongue peeking out?

Having some fun with Dad:

And then, wait, not so sure about what Dad just suggested…

Love this, with mama looking on…

We got to pop outside at the end of the shoot — a girlie and her mama again:

Great phots, well done!

Fantastic expressions

And  for me, of all the fantastic expressions, this one takes the cake – eyebrow raise/splayed fingers and extra arm/leg rolls and all :)

But actually, the whole shoot was full of awesome expressions:

See what I mean?

But J seemed nonplussed when presented with Dad’s tongue…

But he was easily won over.

I just love this pensive profile:

WIth his lovely mama:

And then some knuckle dimples…

His mom’s necklace was his favorite:

It was wonderful to meet you guys, thanks so much for having me out!

Tennille - May 4, 2011 - 12:55 pm

Great pics! Love baby J’s expressions.

Devouring Goodnight Moon

I mean, sometimes books are just so good, I know – I totally DEVOUR them too. For sweet 7 month old girl L, Margaret Wise Brown’s Goodnight Moon is one of those books.

Isn’t she a beauty?

Shhh, daddy!

Love the tongue here :)


Great getting to know you guys!

5 months old and loving carrots

Even though we didn’t do the pureed carrots until late in the photoshoot, I have to post them first because I LOVE these pictures.  Big boy C adores his carrots, grabbing the spoon away from his mama with gusto each time :)

Mmm… and the eyelashes? Awesome.

Knuckle dimples in the background…

A real Jumperoo fan:

And mama tells me this is a signature face from Mr. C, with tongue.

Jen, it was fantastic to see you again and meet you for real.  Thanks so much for having me out.

Sistery Valentines

I got to go see these two beauties a couple of weeks ago, but it was a big secret and I wasn’t allowed to post anything on here until now, because it was a present for their dad.

When big sister B was about little sister P’s age, we took a very similar shot of her nibbling on her dress. :)  The toes in the bottom corner are the best part of this one.

Ahh, the wrist rolls.

Smooching the toes.

Look at those eyelashes!

Mama and her girls.

Beautiful B.

Baby, you’re a FIREWORK!

So wonderful to see you guys!

First comes love, then comes marriage…

People ask me if I’ve ever shot a wedding, and I tell them I’ve only done a few of them, and that babies are more my thing.  But whenever they ask, I think of this incredible couple – my husband Evan’s best friend since he was two and Sash was born, FORTY YEARS AGO yesterday. (Happy belated, Sash!)

I shot their wedding back in 2007…

their first son’s newborn pictures in 2008, then his 7 month and 14 month old pictures… and then newborn pictures for his perfect sister last summer, and now a couple of weeks ago… her six month pictures.

But first – look what that wonderful marriage a few years ago brought us :)

Isn’t she lovely?


Not sure which thumb-sucking picture I like better.  This one?

Or this one?

The similarity between this next pair of photos is pretty cool. It’s an old pic of H at 7 months on the left, and one from this shoot of L at 6 months on the right.


20 tiny toes…

Loved spending time with you guys as always.

Two blondies

If memory serves (and Kristen, correct me if I’m wrong) in 1986, these cuties’ fun blonde mama and I were in a critically acclaimed elementary school production of Sound of Music together. Now it’s 25 (???!!!) years later and I got a chance to meet her fun blonde munchkins last weekend.  It was wonderful from start to finish.

Moments of crazy,

mixed with quiet…

Love this – check HIM out :)

LOVED seeing you again! Keep in touch :)

Big happy sis, leetle sweet brudda

Favorite, favorite, favorite!  I love this one so much.

But this one’s pretty great too.

Wait, wait, I actually love this one a lot too.

The curls on big sister aren’t to be believed.

And the grins on little brother are pretty fantastic too.

These two are really close in age – less than 2 years apart.  So although when we did these photos big girl K was (just barely) 2, I’m sneaking them into my two under two category for this blog post, because I know what a challenge it is for parents who have children that close in age, and it’s fun to see photos of other families who’ve done the same.

Great to see you guys again!

A not-so fearsome foursome

This is one family who knows how to have fun together:

And when baby M had a sad time, all three of the boys were so concerned with making her feel better…

The eldest:

One sweet twin outside:

One sweet twin inside:

And beautiful baby M:


Wonderful to see you guys as always!
