Family Portrait Photography at the Boston Public Garden and Commonwealth Mall

Introducing the most quintessential Boston Proper young family I have photographed to date.  Sarah, Matt and baby Jackson met up with me in the Public Garden on a chilly afternoon for a family photo session.  Sometimes, babies can be difficult out in the cold – but not Jackson!  This cutie-pie smiled and giggled the whole time, giving me ample opportunities to capture his blue eyes and perfect dimples. He certainly adores both his parents who showered him with affection the whole time.  The bigger challenge was to get them to take their gaze of their son and turn toward the camera!  But I really can’t blame them – Jackson is just too adorable (we also had lots of onlookers stopping by to check out the shoot).  Sarah had brought along a great assortment of baby gear for him to model, including my favorite item, his fur-lined booties!

At the end of the session I decided to stroll with them down Commonwealth Mall – where Boston workers were just starting to put up holiday lights on the trees.  Beautiful family + setting sun + newly lit trees = the perfect Christmas card photo opp?  I think “yes” : )
