Southie Maternity Portraits

What a privilege to watch this family grow!  We did both the maternity session and the newborn portrait shoot right at their home, taking advantage of the cozy nursery and the excited pets.  I so enjoyed working with the Villanovas to tell this piece of their family story and am I honored to have been asked to take their Boston family photos.

Southie Newborn Portraits at Home

This little guy came into the world healthy and ready to take on everything - expect perhaps this adorable crochet lion costume.  He wasn't having any of this. He was however, much happier to snuggle into dad and mom

A wonderful family and one that I am happy to know - and call neighbors!


Double Mother's Day | Boston Family Portraits

Two of my favorite brides of all time, these beautiful new moms welcomed their daughter last week.  Strong and healthy, she weighed in at 10 pounds and six ounces.  This little girl was already nearly holding her own head up and aiming to crawl. We quickly assessed that our initial ideas of a curled up baby in a blanket were not going to be realized.  

i went to their home, where they were recuperating, taking family leave and learning their new routines.  This is a beautiful moment to document, as they learn how to be family.  

The dog wasn't quite sure what to make of these changes, so she stayed curled up in her own bed.  

NEWBORN PORTRAIT DETAILS

I usually pack a macro lens, so I get get in quite close to capture the tiny hands, little feet, those adorable baby fat rolls and their perfect little faces.  Q was learning how to self soothe, her thumb eventually finding its way into her mouth.  

After a quick tour to scout light, I set up a small space to work. Newborns are usually quite small - natural light studios can be created in small corners.  Here's the nursery

I always want to harness as much natural light as possible.  Even on a grey day the light coming in through windows. 

ENVIRONMENTAL FAMILY PORTRAITS

With a new child, as you start to find the rhythms of your new life, environmental portraits tell the story of this new chapter.  In my location family portrait sessions, I capture what's happening that day.  Like feeding, changing, and giant sneezes.  It's all part of the real love story of your family. 

Welcome to Earth, little Q!  We are so glad to have you.  Blessed with two amazing moms to guide you, you are one blessed little girl. 


Boston Newborn Portrait .:. Baby Girl Bohan

Here are a few gems from a Boston newborn portrait shoot.  This little lady's mother and I met in seventh grade, became fast friends and had six years of (thankfully pre-facebook) shenanigans at Boston Latin School.  Sometimes I cannot believe how much has happened since we first met, but then again I can.
I got a text early one morning last summer that the anticipated baby girl had arrived, and early.  I grabbed my camera and took the red line straight to Mass General Hospital.  She was born a little early, by C section and is completely heathy.  Here she is nestled in with her mother during the first hours of life. With one eye open, she greeted the world.

Such a pipsqueak! Macro lenses aren't just for ring shots.
