The tease of warm weather this weekend has me thinking forward to Spring! I can’t wait to be out shooting in the beautiful sunlight again soon. Last spring I had a great time taking the Miller’s family portraits at Kirby’s Mill in Medford. It’s such a cute little spot that is packed full of great picture locations. I always love getting together with the Millers too! Their girls are so incredibly sweet. Their older daughter melted my heart when she took my hand to walk over to the next spot. It was such a great session full of so much family love!
I met Ainsley and her parents at Smithville Mansion for a family session and 2nd birthday portraits. We lucked out with a beautfiul day that luckily wasn’t too warm. Ainsley gave me my workout for the day running around after her but we had so much fun! I love letting toddlers play and run during our session so we can capture natural smiles and laughs! After we took Ainsley’s portraits we did some family pictures around the Smithville Mansion grounds. I love shooting there since they always keep the mansion so beautifully decorated and it didn’t disappoint for this session.
Last week the Mama-togs all got together to exchange pictures of each other with their children. As photographers we always end up behind the camera and rarely get pictures with our families so this is a great chance to focus on the moms! We met up at Boundary Creek and let the kids play while we all took time in front of the camera. I'm so happy to share my favorites of the night with you.
Ava is about to celebrate her first birthday so she came into the studio to visit me for her first birthday and cake smash session! I had so much fun planning out her session with her mom and LOVED her birthday dress. Ava's mom and I both share a love for Etsy inspired outfits and decorations. I designed a flower themed set for her birthday outfit that let Ava stand out and then we did a Wild One theme for her cake smash. I absolutely love when babies go face first into eating their cake and Ava didn't disappoint! She touched her cake a few times and then just went right in for eating it. She definitely enjoyed it!
As the snow is coming down I can't help but dream of last week when the weather gave us a beautiful 50 degree afternoon! Andrea wanted to try to do her maternity session outdoors if the weather would cooperate and we were able to do it just three days later! I met her and her family at Smithville Mansion in Easthampton for her maternity session. We had fun taking family portraits and then ending with portraits of the mama to be by herself in a gorgeous lace gown. I'm now offering gowns like the one she is wearing for all of my maternity sessions!
First off was the family portraits with big sister to be Ava. There is so much personality packed into such a little girl! She had me cracking up with her dancing, singing and playfulness.
I had the pleasure of seeing Benjamin again for his newborn session. We did a studio session this time with the whole family! Benjamin was more interested in what we were doing than sleeping so in most of his pictures he is peeking at me with one eye. He still did wonderful and we got so many portraits. Mom loves penquins so we included that in his session too.
This spring a group of momma photographers got together to swap pictures of one another and let the kids play. We met at the Burlington riverside and had some fun in the setting sun. It was a bit overcast that day but we still had a good time!
