Holiday Family Sessions | Boston Family Portraits

Friday, November 14th, 2008

We were blessed with awesome weather two weekends ago for the family sessions we did all day out in Franklin Park. We spent 30 minutes with each family, and I was so pleased to get such charming images in such a short timeframe. Big thanks to everyone for showing up on time and to Grace Benson for her assistance all day long.

Aside from formal family portraits during weddings, I do not consider myself a family photographer – that takes special patience and a skill set I have not yet developed! That said, the holidays do present an excuse to do some extra portraits by request. I have a few families I love to work with every year who appreciate my quirky and fun family sessions.

This is a great opportunity for me to remind you that TOMORROW is the cutoff date for most print orders for holiday 2008 delivery. Those families who are just receiving their proofs this week have until November 20 to make card and print purchases.

Wow! Feedback already:

Hey Rachel!
We LOVE our pictures…I have to tell you I wasn’t so sure how they would turn out based on Abby’s post Halloween sugar crash, but once again you captured the best parts of her, and our family. I love looking at the pictures of the 3 of us from the engagement session, the wedding, and now these…you caught our transition to a real life family on film, and I’ll forever treasure the images!

portrait swap – Ashley O’Dell | Boston wedding photographer

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

I had a great time sharing my top secret photo spot with another Boston photographer this week. Ashley O’Dell is super terrific and wonderful and we laughed a lot as we checked out the old bear cage from 1912 that is still hanging out there in the woods next to a hiking trail. Talk about hip urban decay! And I have none other than Diana and Micah, who I get to see this Sunday at the wedding, who took me out there for their engagement session last year.

We dubbed the theme of the day ‘retro’ and we brought our little analog cameras and did portraits of one another with holgas, and she had this rangefinder camera that looks like an accordion and according to an aunt does actually still work. As you can see, Ashley does retro and wonderful very, very well (proof!).

My contribution to the theme was to wear this fabulous cape. It’s one of those outer coats that’s not heavy enough to keep you warm, and not so light as to be pure vanity. So, it’s basically applicable for a total of three days out of every year. We’re in the middle of those three days right now, luckily.

one more.
