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,

Mini-Minis||Boston Child and Family Photography Mini-Sessions

Okay!  I can't really say enough happy things about last Saturday's mini sessions. The fabulous Erica, owner of the kid's boutique Wild Child in Arlington Center, kindly agreed to host me, my big ol' lighting kit, and a whole bunch of adorable kiddos and families.

Fair warning: I use accolades such as "cute"and "adorable" a lot. You're welcome to imagine me clapping or squealing as I introduce each kiddo. It would be pretty accurate ;-)

I had such a fun day, catching up with some lovely families I've previously photographed, and meeting some new cutie-patooties. One sweetpea that I first met as a super sleepy newborn is now almost 2 years old, and.... well... take a peek below.... boston-family-photography-03See the dashing fellow below in the suspenders? I was called to take photos for the first time when he was just a teeny little newborn. Four sessions later, and this trio continues to blow my mind with how much they rock each shoot!boston-family-photography-04The next silly kiddo is six, and she is so much fun. It wasn't hard to figure out where she gets in from - her parents kept being so goofy - especially dad - while she was having her picture taken, and cracking her up.boston-children-photography-02I met the duo below when little dude wasn't even sitting up yet. And now? Look at those goofy siblings with their darling curls.....boston-family-photography-01The handsome pants below? That smiley guy was just crawling when I last saw him, and now he is a proud big brother of little sister that wins a baby-hair award.boston-family-photography-02These goofballs were so giggly and fun, as are their parents, who snuck into a couple photos too, in all their grinning glory. (Seriously, the whole family has such amazing smiles!)boston-family-photography-05Ackkkk! This duo! I met these identical boys as tiny newborns, and now they are sitting, standing and generally not staying still or in the same place as one another for longer than a few seconds! At nine months, photographing them proved much mor challenging... luckily their clever momma brought some backup/wrangling assistance in the form of their doting grandpa. arlington-twin-photographyFirst time I had the pleasure of meeting this cutie below. She was...skeptical... about being in photos alone, but between her momma's soothing and her daddy singing sweet and silly songs, we managed to convince her to share some smiles. boston-baby-photography-02Another big brother below, whom I saw last as a barely walking little dude years ago! He is now quite the stylish five year old, having picked out his awesome blue frames himself. His 2 year old sister has an awesome toothy little grin, and also expertly rocked the flower crown. boston-family-photography-06 Goodness! Then there's these two! Again, I met big sister many minis ago, and now she is big sistering like a champ. It's so much fun for me to see these kiddos get bigger!boston-children-photography-01 Oh goodness. Are you ready for this little lady? Her smirk is out of this world, and looking at the photo of her sitting on the wood box with her little legs swinging down just about blows the cuteness meter for me.boston-toddler-photography-01

P.S. Monday confession: Self-promoting is *hard* for me! But I LOVE hanging out with your kiddos and being silly and goofy all the while taking photos of them. And I do realize that the only way for you to know that I could be the perfect photographer for your family is by doing the self-promoting thing. So, yeah. That was.... awkward. I'll keep practicing ;-)

Jen, Phil, Holden & Annabel Lee

 

In honor of Mother's Day, I'm going to start out right here:

And then move straight into this photo, because I think it is just the sweetest moment, and as a mom myself, it makes me swoon :-)

And gorgeous little sister, being all sweet and cute:

Such a happy looking family -

Happy Mother's Day, Jen!  Enjoy your sneak peek!

Kelly, Chris, Lily & McKenna

Let me just start with this:

Words can't describe how happy this photo makes me!  Miss Lily is absurdly cute, no?

Not to mention incredibly photogenic.  So I'm actually putting two photos of her in this sneak peek, because I can't help myself:

But enough about big sisters, for the moment!  Check out the adorable McKenna, and dad Chris.  That is a happy looking duo there, wouldn't you say?

(sidenote: McKenna is one of the original Willow Babies - as always, it blows my mind seeing how much she's grown:

Annnnd, back to Lily, but this time with beautiful Momma Kelly:

No Mini sneak peek would be complete without a family shot.  So here it is - basically the first photo of their shoot.  My dear and gorgeous neighbors know how to get things done!

Kate, Billy, Claire & Helen

When lovely Momma Kate contacted me for a mini shoot, I didn't know just how darling a family I was about to meet.  Check out this gorgeous group:

Little sister Helen was sweet as can be....

...while Big Sister Claire really tried to trick me with her initial toddler sass.  Before the shoot ended, however, I managed to

discover quite a fun and playful little girl.

And then there was this amazing sister moment, which is officially one of my new favorite photographs.

Thank you, Kate, for finding me and giving me the opportunity to photograph you and your lovely brood!  Enjoy your sneak peek!

Jason, Sam, Griffin & Felicity

This family had *serious* energy!  With tiny little Miss Felicity a mere 5 weeks old, I was very impressed that this quad had the organization and desire to partake in a family photo shoot.  I had the pleasure of photographing them on a beautiful spring day.  It's easy to see that they didn't stay in one place for long.

 

A small, quiet reprieve for mommy-baby time.

(There was literal bribery involved in this photo.  (Tiny chocolate cookies - Momma Sam was quite prepared!)

Enjoy your sneak peek, Jason & Sam!

Dan, Tiffany, and their Little Ladies

I've really been enjoying to get to know this adorable family over the past few months, and I was beyond thrilled when they decided to sign up for one of my mini shoots.  We lucked out and had a gorgeous morning for playing and running around in the sunshine.  It was tough to pick which favorites for this sneak peek - they provided so many great moments for me to document!

Here's Talia, in one of her slowest-paced moments of our morning:

And here's the sweet little Miss Ellie, with her beautiful momma!

And with her adoring dada:

And the whole gang, a bit sideways, but miraculously all in one spot!

I had such a great time taking photos with you four - I can't wait to share the rest with you!
