Family Portraits at Lush Belmont Habitat, MA

Super excited to share these images of one my dearest client and her family from earlier this summer (well, June, which was really a late spring for us this year!).  Adorable Emma has grown up so much from just a year ago (check out their shoot from last year).  She has become more expressive, hamming it up for the camera (I LOVE her attitude rocking the sunglasses!), but also truly allowing herself to explore nature at the lush grounds of Belmont Habitat.  I am frankly somewhat surprised that these photos actually take place outside Boston, because they almost feel Southern and swampy (somewhat due to there was foreboding weather at one point).  We were all surprised and happy when the sun poked out when playing in the meadows, where Emma found her own special “Emma sized tree”.

Habitat was an amazing place to photograph this curious and smart family (scientist Dad) not only because of its diverse terrain (woods, pond, meadows, gardens, farm animals, etc), but also because Emma will be going to nursery school there in the fall.  Not a bad place to start learning at!
