Well don't you think the historic beauty of Boston's Back Bay is the perfect place to document a family history, too? That, and the weather on this November day couldn't have been better for this Boston Family Reunion Photoshoot.
About Family Reunion Photoshoots
I call multi-generation shoots "Family Reunion" photoshoots. Since most families like to own all the high-res JPG files after the session with these kinds of photoshoots, the JPG files are included in these session packages. Families can then make photobooks or prints or whatever they'd like with the files after the session.
Boston Family Reunion Photoshoot
This photoshoot is a happy tradition, two years in the making. Last fall, when M was only 3 months-old, her grandmother called and asked if I could come do photos when her son and his family visited from the west coast. I was delighted to return this November to behold madame M, now a big girl of 15 months...
Of course, we started with the star of the show, Ms. M with her mama, and then seated between her aunt and her daddy (before she insisted they leave, since the hearth is really *her* spot.
And then of course her grandparents. I think they are quite fond of one another...
But the whole reason for this family reunion photoshoot was to get a multi-generational photo. Ms. M had other priorities at first...
...but she eventually got into it. She got some Mama/Daddy time, too:
And these guys didn't even require funny faces for their photos 😉
That shot just above here with M and her grandparents is one of my absolute faves. I just love how happy she is there! Well, they're all pretty happy, actually...
Auntie smiles 🙂
And when we'd had enough fun on the roof deck, we headed down to the Commonwealth Ave Mall for some runaround time. Whether she was with her aunt or her parents, she adored her fall playtime.
It's hard to imagine that just a year ago, this little lady was just a teenie babe.
And then we headed back upstairs - and what's more fun to someone who's newly awesome at stairs than her grandparents' 5th floor apartment? Nothing! Wheeeee up we go!
