LA Maternity Photographer – Culver City baby

This session was extra special for me, because that’s my gorgeous little sister and her husband, preparing to welcome my newest nephew into the world :) We had a lovely evening walking around their neighborhood in Culver City, CA, trying to incorporate as many of their favorite spots as possible. We strolled downtown, played in the fountain, passed by Culver Studios, visited city hall, and even stopped by their local market for a few shots.

Culver City was an awesome way to capture significant landmarks near their home, but the beach also holds a special place in their hearts. So once we had thoroughly trekked through Culver, we headed to the ocean for sunset. The clouds were ominous at first, but the sun peeked out for just enough time for us to get some beautiful beachy shots. In fact, I think the clouds only made these photos more beautiful!

Salem Photographer – Picking Daisies

My son was actually the one who first asked to stop by the side of the road and pick some daisies. But my daughter was the only child willing to have her photo taken :)

Spring mini-sessions – Little girl, big ideas

This little lady has a mind of her own. She knows exactly what she wants and how she wants it! She is strong, determined, persistent – and I’m sure she is destined for great things :) I have the privilege of photographing her every few months, so it’s been a blast watching her grow! She seems to get faster with every session!

Andover Family Photographer – Catching up

It was so much fun to catch up with this energetic family again this Spring for a mini-session! The girls have grown so much since their LAST SESSION, and we had a blast playing in the flowers and around the beautiful gardens. We were only together for 30 minutes, but there were so many laughs that we captured tons of smiles!

Andover Maternity Photographer – Flower power

This maternity mini was full of laughter, love, and lots of flowers! As much as I enjoy photographing kids and babies, it’s sometimes very relaxing and..well…FUN to work with expectant mamas – especially when they trust me enough to go with the flow and try all of my crazy ideas :)

Orchard Photo Session – Sunset in the flowers

I fell in love with this gorgeous location as soon as I spotted it! The flowers, the light, that cute tree branch at just the perfect height to sit in…Just add a glowing mom and her babies, and you have all the makings of a beautiful mini-session! The trees will be blooming for a few more days, so contact me ASAP if you’d like a session with your own family.

Why I love albums (and you will, too!)

It all started when I ran out of wall space in my home. As a photographer, I understand the importance of printing my own family’s photos, and displaying them around the house. But I take a lot of pictures. I mean, a LOT. And I love so many that it’s virtually impossible to choose which ones to display and which to leave on a hard drive somewhere. Each photo captures an emotion, a nuance, a look, a moment in time that I’ll never get back – and I wanted to be able to look at and enjoy each and every one, without having to pick and choose. So, I started creating albums.

I have albums everywhere. I have albums filled with photos of my everyday life, albums with styled session images, and albums of simple snapshots. There are albums in my kid’s rooms, and albums stacked at arm’s reach in the family room. And WE LOOK AT THEM. All the time. My kids often choose to leaf though old albums in lieu of bedtime stories at night, and we laugh and talk about the memories they hold. It makes me so happy to see my photos being enjoyed and appreciated on a daily basis.

That got me thinking – if I appreciate albums that much, then my clients would probably love them too. While a canvas on the wall can display a favorite image from a photo session, what happens to all of those other “in between” shots that capture the little things that define a family? Mom snuggling her babies…a spontaneous hug…Dad giving his son a piggyback ride. All of these images tell a story, and they belong TOGETHER.

And that’s how I made the decision to include an heirloom quality 10×10 photo album with each and every full session that I do. The feedback I’ve received has been overwhelmingly positive. In the past, people have let their images sit on a USB in a drawer somewhere, with the intention of eventually printing them…someday. Now, I do all of the work, and families can enjoy the images easily and often. And that makes me very, very happy.

I’ll be blogging album images more often in the future. For now, here is a newborn album that I recently delivered. It was so beautiful that I was almost sad to see it go!

Spring Mini Session – Sitting pretty

When we first started planning this beautiful baby girl’s spring mini session, we never imagined that it would still be so cold at the end of April! She was a trooper, though. You’d never know that it was windy and freezing as we enjoyed the gorgeous spring landscape.
And that flower crown! Isn’t it spectacular?! Mom bought it from THE WOOLY POSSUM on Etsy (check her out on FACEBOOK, too!).
I love being able to follow little ones as they grow through the first year. Just look how much she’s grown since her NEWBORN SESSION! These mini’s are a perfect way to capture all of the major milestones – sitting, crawling, standing, and – eventually – walking!

Merrimack Valley Photographer – Spring beauty

It’s just not Spring until this magical field of crocus and daffodils blooms! The colors, the warmer temps, the sweet evening light – it’s all pretty spectacular.

A few nights ago, I brought my own family to enjoy the field of color. First, I spent some time capturing my daughter’s two-year-old photos, complete with a tea party and wagon ride for her friends!

Then, we were able to grab a few shots of the rest of the family (with some help from my amazingly patient friend Casey). I LOOOOOOVE that first one of my hubby and his little girl – I think it’s going to have to end up in a frame somewhere!

Nyack Maternity Photographer – Worth the wait!

Most maternity sessions are mini-sessions, typically reserved as an add-on to a newborn session. We spend about 20-30 minutes capturing a few images of the baby bump and parents-to-be, and enjoy getting to know each other before the baby arrives.

When these parents-to-be told me that they were expecting a baby girl in May, however, I knew we needed to make it a full session. They have been waiting for this moment for a very long time, and are now savoring every second of pregnancy! They also happen to be two of the sweetest, kindest, most generous, loving people I know, and I couldn’t be happier to do this for them!
The evening of our session was perfection. It was one of the first warm Spring days of the season, the sun was shining, and Mom was glowing. First, we headed to a “natural” setting in a beautiful wooded area. I LOVED that flowing dress – doesn’t it make her look like a goddess?!

Nyack Maternity Photographer

Then we headed to downtown Nyack, NY at sunset. Although the spring flowers weren’t yet blooming in the ground, we found these bright yellow blossoms in a pot by one of the shops, and I love the pop of color it added to our images!

Good luck to you both! I can’t wait to meet your new little one next month!

LA Maternity Photographer – a new nephew!

My sister is having a baby! I’ll have a new nephew next August, and I am over the moon excited about it. She may live on the other side of the country, but I hope to see that baby boy as often as possible – so you may notice more travel sessions available in LA over the next few years 😉

This past weekend, we threw the parents-to-be a “You are my Sunshine” baby shower back east, and it was so much fun!

LA maternity photographer

My daughter was very intrigued by the celebration and the idea of a new cousin. She even appointed herself as the official gift-giver! It will be so interesting to see how they interact when the baby is finally born.

It may have been freezing outside, but we spent about 30 seconds grabbing a couple of maternity pics at the end of the day. Aren’t they so sweet?! I still can’t get used to seeing my little sister with a baby belly!

Merrimack Valley Newborn Photographer – Embrace the chaos!

As I went through this family’s newborn images, I realized that I never blogged their maternity mini-session! I know I’ve said it before, but I just love how adding a maternity mini to a newborn sessions allows us to meet, talk, and get excited together before the baby is even born.
Merrimack Valley Maternity Photographer

On the morning I first met this little guy, I was impressed by how calm the household was – especially the three older siblings! They all enjoyed holding and snuggling their little brother, and mom and dad were so obviously in love with their kiddos. Of course, there was certainly some craziness at times, but nobody seemed particularly bothered by it. I suppose that’s the only way to successfully parent a big family! Embrace the chaos :)

Tewksbury Newborn Photographer – Never too late!

I often receive emails from concerned parents who are worried that they waited too long to do newborn photos. The truth is that sometimes it’s actually BETTER to schedule photos for around 6-8 weeks old instead of right away. Why? Parents are more relaxed and comfortable with their new roles, breastfeeding mothers have settled into a nursing routine, and the baby is more alert. Of course, there are tradeoffs – the baby is less likely to fall into a deep sleep, and has typically filled out a bit from the newborn stage. But the bottom line is that it’s never too late to photograph a baby!
*One note – it’s still important to schedule a newborn/baby session while you’re still pregnant in order to ensure a spot on my calendar!

This happy girl was wide awake for most of the session, but we were able to soothe her into a little nap towards the end. And she even flashed a few smiles! I can’t wait to see how much she’s grown in a few months for her milestone mini-session!

Waltham Newborn Photographer – Big love

When we started planning out this newborn session, Mom was a little concerned that their home wasn’t big or bright enough to use for a session. Well, I think these images are proof that even small spaces can be beautiful! Just look at all that love! My favorite part of the session was when their doggie got into the pics :) He was so sweet and curious – already a fantastic big brother!
