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.

North Andover Kids Photographer – Action packed

Sometimes, lots of planning before a session is really helpful. The family and I can come up with ideas for activities to do during the session, emotions we want to capture, and special items we want to incorporate into the photos.
But more often than not, we get to a session and the kids have an entirely different plan. They don’t want to read the books we’ve brought or the hot chocolate we made, and instead they want to run through the fields and pick wildflowers for their mom. And that’s absolutely fine with me! During this family session, we did do some of the things we had planned, but they were very brief. It turns out that all we really needed was wide open space, some flowers and leaves! The kids had a blast, and I certainly got my exercise for the day. Perfection!
