Emma + Noah

Saturday, December 20th, 2008

I had a fun and funny time in Honolulu with my new buddies Emma and Noah. We did a casual photo session to help build up their comp cards, and also did a few family shots. Check these out!

Check out this shot when I told everyone to make squishy faces… Noah looks unimpressed.

Ramsey and her Keepers

Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

Awhile back I had a quick mini-session with Kim, Doug, and mischievous little Ramsey in the little green space between the North End and the Boston’s financial district. Kim’s a fellow photographer, and we started off four years ago together trying to figure out what the heck to do with a speedlight.

Whenever I am trying to relax a kid and lose the cheese factor, I ask everyone to make a “very serious face.” Ramsey’s reactions to Kim and Doug are hilarious, to say the least. As you can see from the last photo, that little technique works like a charm almost every time.

I like this one best of the group shots, because it’s the perfect moment of Ramseyness. Let’s face it, the girl, like most her age, is a bit random. She alternates between playing shy and playing stage manager when someone new is around. I love the randomness of kids. They are always my favorite shots.

What a pleasure it is to photograph for friends.

and Ramsey’s little squishy smiley face when they lifted her up in the air.
Also, look at the way she looks at her daddy.)

Wingaersheek Beach | MA Family Session | Portraits by Request

Monday, November 10th, 2008

Every year I photograph just a few families together for the holidays before it gets too cold outside. The B family is one of my favorite families to photograph, and I enjoyed doing a session with the newborn twins at their new house last October. This year, we got more of the family involved, and changed to a cool Massachusetts beach location. I was astounded by the pleasant weather we experienced at Wingaersheek Beach in Gloucester. Of course it was windy by the water, and although we scheduled for the late morning to take advantage of the universally good hour for children (10-11am) we still only had a short window to photograph all four kids.

I love the images from this two-family portrait session. Each one is like a little treasure, documenting the children on that particular day with their little matching sweaters.

I have several favorite images from the session as you can see, but the one of Bret and Anya together above ranks the highest. I love to see interaction between daddies and daughters.

The G Family | Portraits by Request

I wanted to share some photos from a recent family session I did with the G family in Wisconsin. I only do family stuff by special commission — I have found that expectations from a family session vary wildly but usually end up centering upon finding the perfect, smiley ‘Christmas card shot.’ And that’s not really me – I do creative lifestyle portraiture, a day in the life of you, and intimate glimpses into the real deal. So when little Drew was checking out the light fixture in fascination while mom and dad snuggle… that’s what I love.
