Boston Family Photography .:. Catching up with Cal

Time. It flies. This cliche is especially noticeable when I see my friends' children.  These babies are entirely different, and often doubling in size, every time I visit. As children do, I suppose.  But it's still wondrous. Last week was chock full of three wonderful visits with dear friends and their stunning children.

I took advantage of Bunker Hill Day and drove north. For a lunch date, a swim and a mini portrait shoot. Last time we caught up with this little guy, it was nearly a year and a half ago.

Today he is quite the big boy, entertaining me with his marble games and showing me how he feeds his chickens while chasing them around the yard.  We cooled off with a swimming excursion to his family boathouse on Dublin Lake.

Here is Cal! Though not staying still for long, clearly growing more charming by the moment.

Boston Family Portrait .:. Three, Not A Crowd

A few Boston family portrait gems from a shoot last fall in New Hampshire.  I grew up with his mom in Dorchester. We met and became fast friends when we were toddlers ourselves.
Her little guy is getting so big! I've had the honor of photographing him since he was born two years ago.

C. pretty much had no interest in having his portrait taken, but he did want to scoot around the yard, picking up pumpkins and placing them in another spot and back again. He also ran up and began climbing around on his dad.  For a rambunctious toddler, that's about right.

Boston Wedding Photography .:. Destination New Hampshire

While these two live a few doors down from me and Sadie here in Boston, they decided to get married in the beautiful mountains of New Hampshire. Boston wedding photography goes north . . .
J. and E. were married in her hometown of Walpole, New Hampshire at the Unitarian Church.  The ladies got ready at the beautiful historic Inn at Valley Farms before heading over to the chapel in downtown Walpole where a family friend officiated.

E.'s parents hosted the celebrations at their home, which had one of the most stunning views of the season.  The entire day was flawless!  Some of my favorites here - more in the gallery section of the website.

A pretty big wedding party (the bride and groom here were respective captains of the men and women's rowing teams at Trinity College, which starts to explain the relative height of the wedding guests) and a pretty big party all around - the band shook the tent until the groom brought out his recent culinary purchase -  a hot dog steamer. So by midnight the groom and his best man were serving up hot dogs as a night caps. And yes, I indulged.

How much fun was this wedding? Can I let the picture of the groom crowd-surfing at the very end of this post explain? A couple of gorgeous goofballs, these two.

A big ups to Jennifer Matthews of Memorable Events for coordinating and Groove Authority for getting everything shakin.'
