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?!

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!

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!

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!

Andover Newborn Photography – Baby brother

I first met this family last fall, at their MATERNITY SESSION. The girls were playful, loving, happy – and very excited to meet their baby brother! It’s always so helpful to get to know older siblings before a newborn session. Bringing a new baby home can be a major adjustment for a family, and I love being a familiar, friendly face for the big kids.

On this snowy morning, we snuggled, played, and eventually got baby brother to sleep. Even the dog got in on the love!

Of course, we had to snap a few shots for their Christmas card!

Billerica Family Photographer – Big love

I first photographed this loving, happy, brave family a few years ago when they were a family of 7. Since then, they’ve added three more adorable children to their clan, and it looks like life has only gotten better!
Each time I spend time with these kids, I’m struck by their compassion and empathy. Several of them have special needs, and it’s incredible how instinctively they help each other out. I also love watching how independent and strong each of them is – no doubt a result of their supportive and empowering parents.

Methuen Baby Photographer – Falling leaves

This winter has been filled with snow days, family movies, snuggles, cooking, games, and books. After an insanely busy (and wonderful) fall, I allowed myself to relish the quiet season. I didn’t blog, I didn’t give my website the overhaul it needs, I didn’t do a bit of advertising or marketing…and it was simply wonderful. But, after a few months of actually sitting on the couch in the evening instead of at my computer, I’m ready to dive back in and get to work! I have lots of Spring sessions coming up when the snow eventually melts, so I thought I should finally finish up blogging the last of my fall sessions!

This little lady came to play on a gorgeous, colorful, fall day, and was fascinated by all of the bright leaves that fell around her! It was a bit chilly, but all it took were a few snuggles with mom to bring back that infectious smile. Methuen baby photographer

How we kept busy…

…during the epic snow of 2015.

We finally gave the boys a “big boy room”! The last time I decorated this room was when I was 7 months pregnant with my first baby – about 7 years ago! Since then, it’s served as a nursery for two sweet boys, and became a Lego playroom for the past year or so. Of course, the boys still needed to sleep in there, so walking across the room (and over piles of Legos) to tuck them in was a bit of a challenge. I loved decorating my DAUGHTER’S ROOM while I was pregnant with her, and the boys were long overdue for an update! While the snow fell this month, we moved the Legos into the basement play area and spent many hours creating a room that inspired creativity, encouraged curiosity, and made reading luxurious. The best part of the project was that boys were involved in almost every step! I think my favorite memory from this whole venture was the photo shoot we held for their favorite Lego creations. They spent the morning building, then I helped them photograph their projects, print out some photos, and hang them above their art desk. So much fun!

Everyone’s favorite spot in the room is the “reading nest” by the window – it’s so comfy that I sneak in here to read sometimes too! The print hanging on the wall here was made using images that we took while looking through the microscope on yet another snow day.

And here’s the whole room!

Since this project wasn’t originally going to be this massive, I didn’t think to take any “before” photos. You can get an idea of what we were working with from this snap, though.

2014 In Review

As we say goodbye to 2014 and enter the new year, I thought it would be fun to put together a compilation of (I think) ALL of the amazing people I’ve photographed this year! It was incredibly hard to narrow down the images, but I’m so glad I took the time to do it. This slideshow makes me thankful to have had the chance to work with so many different, unique, amazing people. 2014 was by far the best year yet for Sarah Jordan Photography, and it’s all thanks to your love and support! Happy New Year, everyone!

Holiday mini sessions – A Winter Wonderland

I’ve been sitting on this post for awhile – but I think it’s finally safe to blog some of my 2014 HOLIDAY MINIS! This year’s sessions were filled with laughter, snow, hot cocoa, and lots of candy canes! We all had so much fun that it actually felt like more of a party than a photo shoot. Of course, I did take a LOT of photos, but it still didn’t really seem like work. I loved seeing the children’s eyes light up when they entered the winter wonderland we created at SMOLAK FARMS! It was so magical that my own kids actually asked if they could come play in it after my sessions were over :)

American Girl – Smolak Farms Breakfast

When I had my first baby boy 6 1/2 years ago, I entered a world of trucks, ninjas and superheros that was completely foreign to me. Over time, and with the addition of another energetic little guy, I got more comfortable with all the things that come with being a boy mom. I learned the name of every kind of truck, got almost as excited about construction sites as they did, and I came to accept the dirt, noise, and general chaos that filled my life. Then I had a daughter. A daughter who loves dolls, dresses, and sparkles.

I still enjoy the rough-and-tumble adventures I get to take with my boys, but also appreciate balancing things out a bit with manicures, shopping trips and quiet, gentle snuggles every once in awhile.

Yesterday, my mother, daughter and I attended a decadent American Girl breakfast at Smolak Farms. We enjoyed homemade quiche, donuts, scones, hot chocolate, cider, and treat after treat as we worked on crafts and played games. I was a little unsure if my daughter would be too young to participate in all of the festivities, but she was just enthralled by her surroundings, and loved being around the “big kids”.

(To be clear, the boys were invited to come with me to the breakfast too, but declined the invitation when they realized that they wouldn’t be allowed to drive a tractor at the farm.)

Boston Family Photographer – He’s a trooper!

I’ve been photographing this beautiful family since before I officially opened the doors of Sarah Jordan Photography. I’ve watched Mom and Dad grow from fun, goofy college kids into fun, goofy (but also responsible, loving, and amazing) parents! I’ve often joked that they are the easiest family ever to photograph; they are super photogenic, their kids are quick to smile, and everyone is so used to snuggling and playing together that it just comes naturally during our sessions. I guess all of that talk had to catch up with me at some point…

This year, big brother came down with an awful case of croup literally ON THE WAY to their session. He emerged from the car with a big frown, and things just got worse as the afternoon progressed. For perhaps the first time ever, I had to work REALLY hard to elicit a smile from this usually easygoing, talkative little boy. But you know, that’s just the way things go sometimes! We were all there and ready, so we decided to give it a go and see how things turned out.

The good news is that he’s now all better, and I don’t think you can even tell how sick he was from these photos :) I’m pretty sure that I captured every single time he smiled during our session. See – it all works out in the end!

North Andover Child Photographer – Superwoman

This girl! Oh, how I love her! I’ve had the pleasure of photographing her every 6 months since she was born, and she just gets sweeter and more adorable with each session. She also gets faster! I chased her around for quite some time a few weeks ago, and captured images of her playing, laughing, and loving life.

And just look at that costume! Isn’t it awesome?! I loved how she embraced the role of Superwoman with such enthusiasm – flying through the air with her cape blowing behind her in the wind.
