I had so much fun capturing these Quincy tween siblings for their family photo session. This brother and sister are just gorgeous, and could have stepped right out of the pages of the latest designer clothing catalog. Mom has shared with me how excited they were for their photo shoot, secretly passing along that they felt like they were models. As they should! We met in downtown Wakefield at a park with a really cool bandstand and lake – a photographer’s dream for options! We quickly got to work and they had so much fun posing together. You can just tell this family has a great relationship. They had an easy air between them and readily flung their arms around each other.
The fall leaves were at peak color adding lovely yellows and oranges to our backdrop.
Right now Lauren still has the height advantage over her brother Jackson but, it won’t be long before he catches her up. I just love this connection here between them. So did mom and she ordered this back-to-back pose in a large print.
Aren’t they just gorgeous? There are definitely great genes running in this family!
I had a great time working with these two being a little older than some of my clients’ kids. Don’t get me wrong, I love the energy required for working with young children, but sometimes it’s nice to have your subjects to be fairly still for you.
Except when they’re not still…..
I really enjoy incorporating some of the more interesting parts of a location into my photos – you may recall when I used this retro gas station for a senior session here. These canons were so cool, and of course, completely appropriate to a New England family photo session.
Jackson is one of my favorite young men – he’s really into music and dancing and loves to go to concerts. He does a mean Michael Jackson impersonation.
Lauren has a great aptitude for sports – she plays on a baseball and soccer team. She loves spending time with her friends and shopping! Well, who wouldn’t?
As you can see from this small sample, we got a great variety of shots which all looked perfect in the 10×10 heirloom album I designed for them. I know for sure that Lauren and Jackson’s extended family had some lovely photography items under their tree this Christmas!

Now that the crazy Fall photography season has come to a close, gifts have been given and holiday cards received, I am excited to share with you some of the great sessions that took place this past Fall. So, let’s kick this off and what better formula for excellent Fall family photos than a great organic farm in Newton, MA that not only featured a cornfield and pumpkin patch, but also a weeping willow by a pond, rolling fields, and beautiful Fall foliage!
My clients seriously make my job easy and fun! What a great time I had with these two adorable and gorgeous girls! They were go go go and had such fun at the farm! We headed off first to the cornfield to play some games.
We pulled some silly faces and chased each other…
…we found a tractor with HUGE wheels we could sit in…
…we picked some flowers and we had piggybacks…
…and of course, they were just generally and absolutely ADORABLE!
You can’t have Fall family photos in New England without featuring a red barn! Don’t you just adore these girls? Oh we giggled, and we hugged…and we may have kept the momentum going with some chocolate M&Ms. Luckily mom came armed and prepared with wipes to hide the evidence!
This entire family just exudes love and fun! That, and unmistakable style! If mom looks familiar to you, then you are correct super sleuths! This is business owner, Karen who was featured on the very first blog post of our relaunch. Karen owns and runs the wonderful Hanu Skincare which uses only organic ingredients. I absolutely love these products and my latest obsession is the French Green Clay Mask – you may have been the recipient of this as a gift this Christmas because I love it so much! I adore repeat clients and greatly treasure the trust given to me in capturing these special family memories. Thank you, Karen and Patrick for this trust, and thank you, girls, for what is to date my most energetic and fun family session.
