Today, I’m super excited to share photos of one ridiculously adorable babe (with an amazing name!), Hendrik. This little dude sneakily learned not just to sit, but also to *crawl* before his first photo session, which ensured all the grownups were kept on their toes, continuously scooching him back on the bed. (Not exactly what his momma and I had planned when we discussed his session. It’s like babies don’t care about what the grownups want, or something 😉 )
I’m feeling a bit giddy to share Miss Leah’s newborn session with you…. partially, because, well, she is a perfect new little human (and I got to spend a good part of a day last week cooing and rocking her to sleep)…..
…and partially because I absolutely adore her family, who I met a few years ago when Leah’s big sister had her own newborn session. When I asked how big sister Vanessa was adapting to her new role, the answer was, “Fine! As long as we introduce Leah as *her* baby.” [Read more…]
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.

I could count up the amount of times I’ve photographed this family, but I’d rather spend the time telling you about how much I adore them. A few years ago, I met them when Sullivan was just a sleepy, smiley little newborn with his own mini guitar. And now, Estelle is here, and has transformed them into the fabulous quad below…..

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….. [Read more…]
Hi Everyone! Here’s a brand new little guy for you to meet……. it’s Milo!
95% of the time I talk to pregnant or brand-new mommas about their little one’s newborn session, they say something to me like, “But I don’t have to be in the photos, right?”No. Of course you don’t. But I am 100% sure that despite how exhausted, and physically not photogenic you may feel, I will be able to capture your beauty following the most miraculous thing your body has ever done: grow a brand new person!

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?
