Eloise - In home Newborn Session

Victoria and Abe were gifted an in-home newborn session at their baby shower over the summer. I was so excited to meet little Eloise when she arrived.

We spent the morning in their nursery and bedroom. Their home was such a beautiful space to work in and it really had perfect light. Eloise was happy in her mom and dad’s arms through the whole session.

It was such a pleasure to meet Eloise and to capture the earliest days of this happy family’s story. Thank you Abe and Victoria, for sharing your home and for letting me capture such a special time!

Penelope Jane - Western Massachusetts Newborn Lifestyle Session

massachusettsnewbornphotographer-12.jpg

Little Penelope Jane was born on August 30, 2019 to her loving parents Thom and Cassandra. Last week they had me over to their home to photograph their new family of four.

It’s funny how easy it is to forget how tiny new babies are. When Cassie came down the stairs holding Penelope I couldn’t believe how little she was!

I also couldn’t believe how well tempered she was. In between feedings Penelope was so relaxed and content with just laying on her back and daydreaming. Thom and Cassie are both deep thinkers and I couldn’t help but see those qualities unfolding in Penelope as I photographed her. She has some really intense deep thought expressions for an infant. It’s pretty cute.

Thom and Cassie hired me to photograph their wedding last year so it was great to catch up with them and be able to capture this next phase of their lives together. They’re a solid team and little Penelope and Orion are so lucky to have them as parents! Congrats to all of you!

Embracing the Chaos - Family Session with the Jackson Four

Each summer the Jackson family travels from Hong Kong to visit their family in New England, which is where I get to see them at our annual family session. This was the 4th year that I’ve worked with them, and I’ve come to expect that each session will be a wildly different adventure than the last.

When we first met, they had two children and Joy was pregnant with her third baby, Oliver. At last year’s session, Oliver had turned 2 years old and Joy was pregnant with another baby boy!

At this session, Evander had just turned one and we celebrated with a fun cake smash at their Airbnb in Northampton. Evander was not a fan of being messy but we photographed it anyway because he was still cute when he was sad and covered in frosting. Don’t believe me? Click here to see the pictures and decide for yourself.

See? Told ya. Pretty cute.

Then WE ALL got cleaned up and headed out to Child’s Park in Northampton for some family photos. Evander was much happier in this field of flowers than he was in the cake moment.

One thing that I admire so much about this family is how willing they are to embrace the madness that comes with having 4 kids - a madness that people like me in the 2-kid club will likely never have to experience at such an intensity. There is running and climbing, waiting, rushing, boo-boos, boogies, wrestling matches, outfit changes, and of course there are many tears and emotions to be dealt with as well.

Chris and Joy’s ability to just roll with all of it certainly defines their family and I think it really shows in their photos. This is real life with 4 kids. They will want to remember all of it, even the hard stuff, because there is an odd charm in the not so good moments too.

I love the tradition of photographing this wild bunch and I can’t wait to see them again next year! Safe travels Jackson 4!

Happy Birthday Evander! Photos from his Fourth of July Cake Smash

Evander turned 1 on the fourth of July so we celebrated with a cake smash!

Joelene from Theme Cakes by Joelene made him a vanilla cake with red, white and blue frosting.

It was delicious.

Sadly, little Evander was not a fan of the photoshoot.

He got pretty upset.

When he is mad, he is still cute.

The end.

NEW! Products for your newborn session!

If you are anything like me, you will likely end up with a phone full of photos of your new baby just moments after he/she enters this world. Be prepared for that sweet little face to dominate every device you and your immediate family owns for the next 18 years. The biggest challenge is then printing the best moments and figuring out how to store or display them.

If you decide to book a Newborn Lifestyle Session with me, you will have many options for how to keep your images stored after the session. In addition to prints, I am now so happy to offer a few keepsakes to display and remember your little one so the images aren’t forgotten.

Beautifully simple from start to finish, my Newborn Album is one ultimate album for every family. With a one-piece linen wraparound cover design, custom embossing on the cover, and sturdy paper options, this high quality album full of your most cherished memories will last a lifetime.

You may also add a custom-made maple USB/box combo. Inside the box is a custom 8GB USB stick loaded with all of the high resolution photos from the session. Your image is printed directly onto the wood surfaces of the USB drive and the memory stick, so the natural grain of the wood will peak through your image.

This is a great way to keep all of the photos from the session safe. The box is sturdy and can be kept on a shelf in a nursery as well.

These items can be added on to any session at the time of booking or after the photos are delivered.

The Almeida Family - Family Photo Session at Fountain Park in Wilbraham, Massachusetts

Chris and Jennifer booked me for a family photo session at Fountain Park in Wilbraham, Massachusetts this spring to capture their new family. Since becoming a family of four they have been so busy that they haven’t had a chance to have photos taken. I was so excited that they reached out to me for their first official photos!

Before they booked this session with me I had only driven by Fountain park and never stopped to explore the space. It was a really fun location for photos with a ton of variety. There are some really neat structures to explore and a big red barn that can be reserved for weddings and private functions.

We had so much fun running around the fields and picking daffodils. Summer and Lincoln are the cutest little kiddos ever and I could have spent the whole day exploring with them!

Chris and Jennifer, thanks so much for choosing me to capture your fun family! I can’t wait for the next session!

Let me capture the fun!

Newborn Lifestyle Session in Ludlow, MA - Charlie

massachusetts family photographer-14.jpg

Last month I had the privilege of photographing this little peanut for a newborn session at home with his parents, Christina and Travis. Christina was given a gift certificate for this session at her shower over the winter and I’ve been so excited to meet all of them!

Charlie’s name was inspired by a trip that Christina and Travis had taken to Boston after staying at the historic Omni Hotel, which is rumored to be haunted by the ghost of Charles Dickens. It also happens to be a common name on Travis’ side of the family.

Travis is Native American and he and Christina wanted to include some elements of that history into this session. We played with many of the dream catchers they had decorating the walls of their home. Turns out they make great mobiles!

Charlie was the squishiest, most snuggly baby and oddly had a lot of personality for being so new to the world. He’d already earned many nicknames from his parents including, my favorite, “Charlie-bones”. Apparently he really enjoyed the newest Bone Thugs documentary on Netflix.

Savannah - Spring photos at Small Ones Farm in Amherst, Massachusetts

amherst_ma_photographer-4.jpg

I photographed Savannah 4 years ago when she was only a few weeks old and every year since then I’ve been fortunate to photograph her at a session!

She was so eager to explore the apple orchard at Small Ones Farm during my Spring Mini sessions and I was happy to follow her with my camera.

I loved seeing how much she’s grown since our last session and I can’t wait to see what new things she’ll be up to next year! Here she is with her sweet mom Erika, who joined her for a few photos at the session.
