Arlington MA Home Newborn Session – the most perfect cheeks!

This sweet love has the most delicious cheeks ever – I just adore them. As I was working on these last night I started using my new BBP-only Instagram to give sneak peeks, bit by bit. It was really fun. If you’re an instagram person, follow @bostonbabyphotos to see what I’m up to, more real-time than ever before. I’ve also become something of an insane #tbt person, so if you follow, your feed might have some fun throwbacks on Thursdays. :)

We started with this one, which I just love for so many reasons. The back of Miss S’s hair, her adorable little neck roll, and then of course there are her parents’ expressions.

Then we moved along to this peek – there is nothing in the world like baby fingers:

And of course you guys know I love a newborn smile. When paired with a mama smile? Even better.

And then we had to introduce those eyes… and of course her perfect cheeks. Staring adoringly at daddy:

The expression here just gets me, and the belly roll… delicious.

And would you believe this little lady is only eight weeks old? Look how she holds her head up!

And then of course there comes the moment when exhaustion sets in, and you have to rest on daddy’s shoulder:

Eyelashes and grins

This guy has the best eyelashes and most infectious smile ever. I met him six months ago at my last Jimmy Fund Benefit Studio Day, (here he is in September with his lighter summer hair), and he’s such a pleasure.

And here’s R – I love his fingers in this shot, all intertwined…

See what I mean about the eyelashes?

And I had to include this one – I feel like six months ago he was still such a little guy, and here he looks like he’s four going on eleven…

An oldie but a goodie

A few years ago I used to do photos in Janie & Jack and Pottery Barn Kids stores, and I still hear from the wonderful families I met doing this. Over the years people have contacted me to ask if they could buy copies of the photos I shot in the stores, and I’ve always had to stay no since the company who hired me sold the photos to the clients directly. But now it’s gotten to be so long ago that I shot these photos that the company I worked for doesn’t have the files anymore, so when someone contacted me today asking about photos I shot back in March of 2005, I got to go back and look at them… Ah-DOR-able! What a cutie this little one was!

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.
