Family Photos from Boston, MA to Sharon, MA – seven photoshoots in seven years

This is #25 in my series of Family Retrospective Videos – for more information about this project or to sign up to be added to the list of families who wants one, just let me know. I’ve been trying to make one of these a month since I started this project back in 2014. Now my queue of families who have requested one of these stretches into the middle of 2017, but if I’ve been taking photos of your family for a while, just send me a message and request one – it’ll be a nice surprise when it appears in your email someday.

Our first photoshoot was in 2009, when little Georgie was only one. I’ve been back to see the six more times since then!

So without further ado, here’s a 6 minute video of Georgianna, Beatrix and Violet’s family with photos from seven photoshoots spread over seven years:

We started back in 2005 when tiny baby Zoe was only two years old. Our next shoot was in 2008, and this time Zoe was joined by a teenie baby Aimee. Since then we’ve had six more photoshoots – lots of them in the Boston Public Garden as minishoots. So many years of fun :)

So without further ado, here’s a 6 minute video of Zoe and Aimee’s family with photos from eight photoshoots spread over eleven years:

Arlington MA Family Photographer – Big sister, little sister, adoration galore

I loved getting to see these girls three times this year! What a treat to get involved with a Baby’s First Year package with these two adorably fun sisters. I can’t believe the year flew by so quickly.

Look who’s one!

I met these guys in 2005 when Abby was three and a half and Emma was one and a half. I got to come back five more times over the next seven years to see them grow into amazing young women.

And without further ado, here’s a 4 minute video of Abby and Emma’s family with photos from six photoshoots spread over seven years:

Squishable sisters

When you have a two year old at home and you bring home a newborn, sometimes you just have to throw the two year old up in the air. It’s necessary, people. #andalsosuperfun

The sweetness that big sister A feels toward her new sister T is just palpable – I adored it…

She is pretty perfect:

The intensity of the sisterly love was pretty hilarious, actually ;)

Always wanting to squish and squeeze her… (But actually, T didn’t seem to mind a bit.)

Public Garden Fall Minishoot #5

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!

Your pictures are great, Jessica. I love the way everyone always looks so natural and not like they are posing.

Jennifer Reardon - October 20, 2015 - 9:08 pm

Gorgeous, I love your style! You captured so many fun moments.

Tricia McKenna - October 21, 2015 - 4:42 pm

so many fantastic shots!

A tiny sister joins them

I got to document this tiny girl last week when she was just eight days old. She’s a perfect four pound peanut, and her big sister is so incredibly loving and kind toward her new baby sister.

And her big canine brother is extraordinarily gentle with her too – he even let her take a nap right on him.

Seven photoshoots in ten years

This is #15 in my series of Family Retrospective Videos – for more information about this project or to sign up to be added to the list of families who wants one, click this link and scroll down the page through the previous posts back to the first or second one (where I describe it in more detail). And I’ll freely admit it – I’m four months late with this one. I promised them this one in April and I’m really posting it in August but I’m back-dating it. Hoping to do a bunch of these videos this August so I can catch up a bit. Thanks so much for your patience, guys!

I met these guys back in June of 2005 when they only had little two year old Mia in their family. I was thrilled to go back a few months later to meet Bella, and I’ve loved visited many times since then to continue to document their fun.

And without further ado, here’s a 5 minute video of Mia and Bella’s family with photos from seven photoshoots over the last ten years:

Public Garden Spring Minishoot #1

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!

Fall Public Garden Minishoot #22

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.

Two strong, fun, incredible girls

Look at these sweet girls! They’re five months old now, and they’re doing so well. They were born teenie tiny preemies, and they’ve spent these last five months being fabulous, getting stronger and grinning.

It’s always my little challenge to myself when I photograph twins to see if I can learn which twin is which during the hour I spend with a family, and then really get those names/faces into my head so that a couple of weeks later when I’m deep into editing their photos, those names look like those faces. OK, be honest… you have to tell me, did I remember right?

On the left we have Ms. J and on the right it’s V… how’d I do?

And then they’ve switched places in this one, V on the left and J on the right…

You got me on this one ;)

Ms. J…

Ms. V…

Daddy and V:

A big grin from J:

And then V enjoying her mobile:

And Daddy giving J her end-of-photoshoot bottle:

It was just wonderful to meet you! Thanks so much for having me.

And without further ado, here’s a 3 1/2 minute video of Daisy, Lila, Tess and Cece’s family with photos from seven photoshoots over the last eight years:

The ladies, a few years later

So I first met nearly 10 year old K when she was just a few months old (eek!) and then I came back and met four year old S when she was just a few months old… and a couple of weeks ago I got to come back and blow bubbles and pick blackberries and watch extraordinary Karate demonstrations with these two (much older now) lovely little ladies.

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again. I adore punctuating childhoods like this. Popping in and out – getting a chance to see what kids are up to, who they are today… it’s the best.

And without further ado, the fabulous K and S.

This one might be my favorite – I love the way S is watching how K does the move…

I also love this one – the blackberry in the middle, everybody focused on what they’re doing…

Wonderful to see you guys again!

A last burst of summer…

OK, I’m anticipating my Public Garden Minishoots this weekend, looking ahead at a wonderfully busy fall, but what better to do when fall is upon us — let’s take a few minutes remembering summer fun.  I’ve taken forever to blog this fun family that I met in July, sorry guys – I took a little blogging break this summer, but I wanted to get this posted because the colors at the beach that day were so fun.

Not to mention how fantastic these giggling girls were…

Janna Schwartz - September 25, 2013 - 10:49 pm

Thanks Jess for these treasured photos we’ll enjoy for years to come!

Three gorgeous generations of women

I’m back! So sorry for the blogging hiatus, guys – I underestimated how tough it’d be to end August and begin September without camp or childcare arranged, so I had to cut out blogging all the families I was editing in that timeframe.  Now I’m back, and if you’d like me to go back and blog your session if I missed you in the last few weeks, let me know – school has started and I’m back in the blogging game.

This photoshoot made me so happy. I have one sister, and now I have two daughters and my sister has one daughter… so this family reminded me so much of us. Last fall was a big birthday for the grandma in this family, so her daughters gifted her with a BBP photoshoot gift certificate, and we got to shoot it in mid-August. I’ll let the pictures tell the story, but suffice it to say, I ADORED this :)
