One of the best parts of my job is that I get to witness and document families grow. Take these guys – remember when I photographed their first son Hudson coming into the world? Well now it’s about 2 1/2 years later, and baby brother Bond is now in the mix. They had me back to their townhouse in the South End to capture their life with the little guy. Of course, Hudson stole the show in my eyes! As I tell my clients, once a second child enters the mix, the newborn session often ends up being more “family” centered – less solo portraits of the baby – more action shots and candids of the entire gang. But also, I just have a thing for toddlers. They are so dynamic! That is not to say Bond isn’t a handsome newborn – no doubt about that! He seemed like a chill little guy who nicely balanced the high energy of Hudson.
So, we started at the home – shots in the nursery, parents bedroom, downstairs playing hockey, with Grandma – and then with some cookie bribery in play head out for a stroll on what turned out to be a lovely spring day.
And on that note – have a happy Memorial Day Weekend – even though it definitely does NOT feel like spring/summer!!
