Ismae's Family||Child and Family Photography

I'm so excited to share this session.... a darling family, gorgeous evening light, and the most precocious little subject, Miss Ismae, who began the shoot with red feathers in her curls, and part-way through was convinced to switch to pigtails.  But the biggest reason this shoot fills me with joy? Seeing my dearest friend in her role of momma and partner.

Ismae's mom and I met at the age of sixteen, and have been swirling in and out of one another's orbit ever since. In high school I recall falling apart into absurd laughter on the kitchen floor, mapping out our entangled web of friendships, getting in trouble in art class, and her introducing me to some of her favorite Buddhist ideas. From prom dress shopping and summer bike rides to whole foods, from visiting her in college in Portland, Oregon, to making a care package for a beloved author*, from living as close as one room apart as roommates in Cambridgeport to mailing letters to her in Nepal, we have known one another though so many years and so many changes. She has always impressed me with her beauty and intelligence, and I hope this session shows her how radiantly I see her. For the one formerly known as "Button", thank you for entrusting me with the honor of capturing you three.

Love,

Sid Got Bigger!||Brookline, MA Baby & Family Photography

Ack! You guys! I'm back with this super adorable, sweet & fun family. But before we get to them, I gotta remind you about Sid... I photographed him as a teeny newborn peanut, and his family and I all had so much fun together they decided to upgrade to my First Year Package. Which makes me super happy, especially because, well you'll get a pretty good idea when you check out Siddharth's smile, below.....smiling-8-month-old Incidentally, Sid has the most cooperative three year old big sister that I've ever photographed. (I truly couldn't believe what a good listener she was, and in such fun spirits too! She's also a ridiculous sweetie pie, and held my hand as we crossed the street and walked to the park.)portraits-three-year-old-girl-and-baby-brother

Emmie is Six Months!||Jamaica Plain Baby and Family Photography

Can you believe that Miss Emmie is already at her six month milestone? This cutie pie and big sister Claire are a bundle of darling-ness and *energy*! (I truly am in awe of their parents for managing to organize five photos sessions in the past few years with two kiddos under the age of three! No easy feat!) Can you get over those kissable lips and adorable toes? 6 month old laying on back with her cute feet in the air

Emmie is less interested in sitting, and bypassing that to just scooch herself around (although she could balance herself for a bit!)6 month old sitting on the floor looking up sweetlyMiss Claire is looking like such a big girl, and yet,just a few short years ago..... set of individual portraits of All adults present fought diligently to get a family photo..... I used up *all* of my photographer tricks, and they both pulled out all the stops. We ended up with this as the most traditional one, but the entire series is quite the entertaining narrative.... family of four snuggling on the bedOne short, quiet moment amid the chaos.... little girl laying peacefully on the bed Also hard fought: a photo of these sisters.....

Happy Holidays to you four! I can't wait to see you again in the summer!

The parents of these cuties did one of my favorite things.... got my Year of Loveliness package for both little Emmie and her big sister Claire. With this package, I come and photograph your little one and family three times during the first year, and present you with a gorgeous heirloom album after the first birthday session. This is one of the best gifts you can give yourself, grandparents, and your tiny person! It's also a way to save a bit on your photography investment, which is, of course, always a nice thing!

I do suggest booking as soon as you've decided that I'm the photographer for you. It’s never too early to contact me about a future session – I generally schedule a few months out – 617-480-0387 or cwy@willowbabystudios.com

2016 Fall Mini Sessions! ||Boston Child & Family Photography

This fall's mini sessions brought a few new faces, and many familiar ones, who braved some fierce wind and chilly weather. The cooler the weather, the more essential the snuggling - which, in my opinion, is never a bad thing (to clarify: snuggling is always fabulous, chilly weather can decidedly be kind of a bummer). From snazzy dressed boys who claimed to be lawyers, to crazy winds that threatened everyone with long hair, to a tree stump covered in crazy orange mushrooms (nicknamed the "Trump Stump") this year's mini sessions brought many new superlatives.... including a rescheduling record of no less than 3 different dates due to the hurricane induced rain. three different fall family and sibling photosOne of the cuties below I've been photographing every year since he was a year old and the little miss in pigtails I last saw when she was ten days old. It makes me so very happy to see these kiddos grow bigger, sassier, silly and more talkative....two photos of smiling kiddosLittle goofballs, toddling twins, and mini-movie stars all showed up for their photos.three photos showing different kids smiling outdoorsSun-kissed and snuggly is the way to go, if the opportunity arises.... three photos of three different families hanging out in new england fall

To all the families that joined me this year - it's such a joy to help you get your holiday season started!

Thank you for taking part.

With love & gratitude,

Ceilidh

Things can seem overwhelming the first when one goes to order spy apps for tablet.

A very much complex choice that someone can make is between various types of smartphone spy apps. Several of companies describe theirs software as Mobile Spy Reviews. Also, view "spy app". Ordering the software can be challenging in this market. Happily, there are some of companies for you to choose where to purchase cellular phone spying applications. Undoubtedly, the list is so big. Lastly, there are many reputable companies offering cellular phone spying applications to them clients.

Connor's Cuteness||Dedham, MA Newborn & Family Photography

Here's baby Connor! A-not-so-tiny newborn with an adorable sleepy smile and the best little newborn hair whorl I've ever had the honor of photographing.newborn smiling while he sleeps

newborn yawning wideA few years ago, I took his sister's newborn photos. Now, Miss Hailey is the big kid - three years old, and settling in to her new role as big sister. three year old sister snuggling with newborn brotherLet's just say she's embracing her new role with a LOT of energy. And incredible story-telling skills! (she needed a break during the session, and it involved spinning quite a tale for myself and her parents). As for their parents? They stayed impressively calm and collected during the various photo session shenanigans. set of three photos - momma snuggling newborn son, daddy cradling his son, 3 year old yellingAges 2-4 tend to be the hardest to photograph, and when parents get (understandably) stressed about how the session is going, it tends to just rev the kids up more. But these two embraced the chaos, and we ended up with some pretty cute - yet realistic! - moments captured.

Congrats on becoming a family of four!

Fondly,

Ceilidh
