Two grandmas and a big one year old boy

This big guy was lucky enough to have not just one but two grandmas come over during his photoshoot. What fun! I’ve loved this Baby’s First Year of photos with M – he’s grown so much (see those photos in the background in the flying-in-the-air shot? those are from his newborn and six month shoots!)

He’s just fantastic. On to another year of adventures, dude!

Catching dragonflies and ziplining

I love meeting new families! So often I get to go back and see children grow year after year – but it’s a really fun change of pace to get a chance to jump in and meet a pair of kiddos for the first time when they’re a bit older: already running around catching dragonflies and zooming along on their zipline.

So here, without further ado, is 7 1/2 year old R and 5 year old M with their super-fun parents:

 

Wonderful to meet you guys!

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!

Spring Public Garden Minishoot #2

Now these kind of shoots are SOOooo fun for me – when I haven’t seen a little one since they were teenie, and I get to see how big and amazing they’ve gotten.  I haven’t seen little L since she was mere days old.  And now she’s 20 months old, and just t0-die-for cute.

Am I right?

So wonderful to see you guys again! I can’t believe how quickly the time flew :)

They are absolutely beautiful!! You did have an adorable model to work with:)

One last post for 2012

Now this is one patient mama – she asked for a blog post a month ago and I have been just running to stand still with this crazy season of the year, but I had to get this up for her before I shut down my computer today (on my last working day of 2012! yahooeeee!).  What a fantastic family these guys are. I’ve loved getting to know them over the past couple of years.  And even better? We got grandma this time, too.  Wonderful to see you guys!

Such great photos! Ren is so adorable and you look beautiful, Naomi!

Chris Blake - December 20, 2012 - 12:21 am

Great pics! Ren is truly adorable.

Naomi - December 20, 2012 - 12:27 am

Jess, That might be the first time anyone ever referred to me as patient :) Love the photos! Thanks for getting these up before shutting down for 2012! Enjoy some well-deserved downtime!

Sarah Barringer - December 20, 2012 - 6:13 am

Super photos Naomi! Ren looks like he loved his time in the spotlight, and he could not be cuter! I love the head shots of just him- growing boy! And you and Ruth look great too. It looks like a really fun photo shoot. xo

Jill Yates - December 20, 2012 - 8:15 am

This is such a fabulous, fun picture Naomi. I can’t believe how big Ren is in his stylish jeans and Dixie just looks so calm with all the craziness! We can’t wait to see you for x-mas! xo

Mik - December 20, 2012 - 9:37 am

What great pics! Actually looks like fun was being had at a photo shoot. Ren looks great and so do you and Mom

erika Gill - December 20, 2012 - 10:53 am

Love these photos! Miss you guys!

Ruth Aoki - December 20, 2012 - 11:32 am

I loved the photos. They even look as if they were easy to take, but Ren kept you working. You did a great job and the photos of Naomi and Ren are wonderful.

Laurie Hamilton - December 21, 2012 - 5:38 am

It would be really difficult to pick just one of these shots–as a group they really catch the little guy just as he is this moment! Wonderful shots, full of the life of a two-year-old!

zoe - December 21, 2012 - 10:50 am

Super cute! what great pix!

Natalie - December 21, 2012 - 5:45 pm

Beautiful photos, beautiful family! LOVE the photos and LOVE that family!! xo

James Canavan - January 3, 2013 - 10:01 am

Barry Gale - January 3, 2013 - 10:03 am

This is one handsome kid!

Dan Boyd - January 3, 2013 - 10:05 am

Great pics. Everyone looks great!

Curls and giggles

I feel like an old lady when I keep saying things about these babies getting bigger and bigger every year – but wow. The curls on this big sister and the walking around little brother… where does the time go? Gorgeous. I love the flying in the air one, the pushing on the swing one (Dad’s expression is the best part) and the cuddling family one outside.  Really fun to see you guys!

8 months of adorable

I loved getting a chance to see E again last week – she’s perfect, all rolls and grins. We even got a chance to do a picture of her with photos of her two namesakes – one from each side of the family.  I’m having a hard time deciding which picture I like the best: the wrinkly-nose one where she’s grinning at her dad, the closeup with the long delightful eyelashes, the playing-with-mom’s hair one… or the lying on her tummy one.  I think maybe it’s the tummy one – that bum is just too fantastic.  Gorgeous girl with her lovely (inside and out) parents. :)

BTW, I’m playing with a new way to blog my favorite handful of photos from the session – is this a fun way to look at them, or should I go back to the standard list of photos that scrolls down the page?

Love, energy and sprinklers

Now about two and a half years ago I took pictures of this extraordinary big sister, but I did it at her grandma’s house, as a surprise for her parents. She’s a strong, amazing 5 year old with some special needs, and now she’s a fantastic big sister to her new brother B. I loved taking pictures at her home this time with her parents and her brother.

First we’ll introduce little B – he’s 3 months old:

And he gets a real kick out of his dad:

Speaking of dad – with Father’s Day coming up this weekend I had to include this one for you guys.  Look at that arm strength on little Miss – giving a real big strong hug.

The moment between mom and dad here was so perfect, I had to include it.  I love the way they’re looking at each other.

Now on to Miss H – with her infectious smile:

Over mama’s shoulder:

And everybody flying:

I really love this moment, too, as Mama watches H practicing her walking with Daddy:

And last but not least, the sprinkler. Nothing beats the sprinkler in the summer!  SO fun to see you guys again.

 

Natalie - June 13, 2012 - 4:59 pm

Jess the pictures look GREAT!!!! I also love the picture of Tom and I looking at each other at the park. What a perfect moment that I didn’t realize you captured. I’m glad you got Miss H’s personality in the pictures! Your amazing and look forward to doing this again!

Kim Soper - June 13, 2012 - 5:14 pm

Love these pics!

cheryl - June 13, 2012 - 6:20 pm

Absolutely Amazing Photo’s. :)

Vince - June 13, 2012 - 8:07 pm

These are awesome photos. Such a great family!

Erin H. - June 14, 2012 - 8:31 am

These pictures are beyond perfect! I know and love this family, and this series definitely catches their love and happiness!

Big brother and big sister enjoying their baby bro

I have to apologize, I have WAY too many that I love from this session.  When this mama got in touch with me, she told me about her incredible 12 and 10 year olds.  That they were wonderful big siblings to her new six month old little guy – and that she wanted to document it.  And I’m just adoring the way we did.

Loving these hands and feet:

Upside-down:

Now this one is also perhaps my favorite from the session – not sure:

We should do introductions… this lovely girl is ten:

And this handsome guy is twelve:

And this cutie is six months:

Loving that mama:

With their pup – catching some air:

Tootsies:

And a couple of classic shots – the three:

And the five:

And last but never least, I adore this from the end of the shoot, when baby D was getting tired:

How can pick which pictures to get? They are great, but then they had such great looking subjects.

Susan Kostinieris - June 1, 2012 - 10:47 am

As the Nana of these 3 great kids I feel I can still be objective about the pics. Fabulous job, you captured the essence of all. They love their new brother and that shines through in all the photos.

Ginny R. - June 1, 2012 - 1:25 pm

OMG!!! They’re all so beautiful!!!

Maureen Briggette - June 1, 2012 - 7:18 pm

Thank you Kate for sharing these photographs…we love them and you have a beautiful family (and Kay said really nice family too)!! :) Hope to see you soon.

Big sister love

You guys, this is one of those ones that would look so neat printed big up on the wall in your bedroom!  I love this sweet sweet moment.

They already have such a great time together :)

S loves to help A when he’s taking off his jammies (and apparently he loves it too):

Loved seeing you guys again!

 

Two handsome, energetic little dudes

OK, before I show you all the adorable pictures of these two guys, I had to start with the most awesome mom shot. If this doesn’t tell the story of a mom of two boys under three, I don’t know what does :)

Now back to these two handsome boys:

Whee!

Grandpa stopped by so we could make sure we got a three generations shot:

And my dad made the connection with this family for me, so I had to post this one in his honor.  I know he wishes his granddaughters took the same interest in golf as this little guy.

Wonderful to meet you guys!

Deb Murphy - November 14, 2011 - 1:49 pm

You really connected with the kids. Thank you for capturing so very special moments! We had a blast.

Fall Public Garden Mini-shoot #12

The final shoot of the 12 family mini-shoot day was a pair of twins I hadn’t seen since they were newborn sweeties, and now they’re big one year olds.  Perfect one year olds.

The light was streaming through the trees, all was right with the world :)

Except when K was told she was not allowed to eat leaves.  She did not like that rule.

But she got over it :)

Whee!

Love how K won’t stand here, and she’s cracking her mama up.  T is completely calm, showing his skills :)

Another Wheee!

And the ladies too…

Mama and her two.  Wonderful to see you guys!

 

Seo Young - October 20, 2011 - 4:58 pm

Very nicely done, Jess !! Love the pictures.

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 :)

Wheee!

Mama tickles:

Look who’s walking:

Peek!

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.

Proud Mama - September 21, 2011 - 12:37 pm

Happy birthday my amazing lil’ man!

Norma Jean - September 21, 2011 - 1:45 pm

Catherine B - September 21, 2011 - 3:08 pm
