Two years old |Boston Children’s Photographer

I photographed this family almost exactly one year ago in exactly the same place.  Despite the circumstances being the same, the toddler is very different! My what a year can do when you are under 24 months old!  This adorable little guy is a bundle of curiosity and independence and all things boy.  A happy, fun and sweet little (almost) two year old.  Exactly how he should be.

7 months old | NH Family Photographer

I just love this age. The gummy smiles, the bright eyes and the chubby legs.  It’s adorable. And this little munchkin has it all. So much expression and personality for such a little package.  She’s got my heart and it’s no secret that she has her mom and dad’s heart too!

Baby Ella | NH Newborn Photographer

Baby Ella is number three in this charming family.  She is adorable and completely loved by her big (but still little) brothers. She is kissed from head to toe and welcomed with open arms. I always love the energy of newborn portraits when there are other siblings.  It’s perfectly chaotic and genuinely sweet.

Baby Elliot | NH Newborn Photographer

What is is about newborns that is so captivating?  It’s almost impossible to resist looking at them and to  study their incredible little features.  Especially when you’re the lucky new parent!  I know I spent many hours just staring at my sleeping babies, willing myself to commit their amazing faces to memory.

Sweet little Elliot was just 6 days old when I photographed her. She is a miraculous little bundle of joy and so loved by her parents and their golden retriever, Angus.  This is truly a love filled home and I am looking forward to watching Elliot grow and to see more of her little personality shine. But for now, she can just stay this way. Because she’s pretty perfect already.

Family of Five

While in Chicago I had the chance to photograph my brother in law Andy, his wife Sarah, and their their adorable family.  Could these kids be any cuter?  I think not.  Cuinn is that delicious age of 9 months.  He has two teeth and the most contagious smile.  I was glad to get my baby fix with him! His fluffy little head reminded me so much of my babies at that age.  Sheamus is two and  just a couple weeks younger than Bea, although they couldn’t be any more different.  He is truly a boy in every way and it’s amazing to watch him play so intensely with trucks and trains and anything that has wheels.  Nell is four and was such a great friend to Atticus while we were there.  I never get tired of looking at her deep brown eyes.  Sigh.  She is so full of personality and has always seemed like an old soul to me.  I love watching her grow.

These kids are so lucky to have the parents that they do.  Andy and Sarah are doing an incredible job raising them.  They take them to so many places and let them experience so many things.  I am honored to call them all my family and wish we lived closer together.
