baby and family session details

My style of baby and family photography can best be described as authentic and documentary. My goal is to capture the personality of your child and the interactions between members of your family in a natural way.  No backdrops, generic props, forced poses or forced smiles. 

My sessions begin with some direction in terms of posing, but children are encouraged to run, play and interact rather than look at the camera and "say cheese". I find that the best and most meaningful images are captured when children are truly relaxed and having fun, not being forced to pose in a certain way or place so I will be looking to capture those in-between moments. I encourage you to incorporate favorite activities in your session to keep children engaged, bring out their true personalities and make the images more personal and meaningful. This could be a favorite stuffed animal or blanket, a snuggle in bed, a favorite book, a sport, jumping on the bed, a ride on the swing or a favorite dress up outfit.

Baby and family sessions can take place at your home, a local park, the beach or any other place that is special to you. Young babies are often most comfortable at home, surrounded by familiar things. Toddlers and older children often enjoy the opportunity to get outside where they can run and play a little more freely. The Boston Public Gardens, Larz Anderson park in Brookline, the Charlestown Navy Yard, Bird Park in Walpole, Rexhame Beach in Marshfield and the Scituate lighthouse are a few of my favorite and most frequently used outdoor locations but I am always open to exploring new places!
