Family portrait session (Diana, Seth, & H) – Wellesley, MA

Those eyes. Oh my goodness. I can’t even stand it. Those sweet eyes paired with his sweet smile and the charming handsaw – yes, I said handsaw. This little guy arrived with his very own (toy) saw and was determined to cut down a tree before the session ended. He was less interested in the fact that he’ll soon be a big brother; a concept far too abstract for him in the moment. But soon enough, he will be able to show all of the woodworking tools to a new little playmate.

Diana and Seth, congratulations on your new little bundle-to-be! What happy news!

Family portrait session (Kathleen, Matt, P, + J) – Wakefield, MA

Whenever these kiddos cross our house, I smile, whether they are walking, biking, scooting, running – their cute little faces brighten up our neighborhood like no other. Take a look for yourself and you’ll see why. There is a joy in their eyes and a sparkle in their hearts, that warms the street. How thankful I am to have such great company so close by.

Kathleen and Matt, thank you so much for sharing these smiles with me!

Family portrait session (Shavawn, Chris, + kiddos) – Winchester, MA

About 8 months ago, I was in their living room photographing little H who was celebrating his first birthday. The world, since then, has been turned upside down but these kids seem no worse for the wear. They are as cute as ever and seem, for the most part, happily unaware of all the changes that have taken place this year. Hopefully, this won’t even be a memory for them as they get older!

Shavawn and Chris, thanks so much for continuing to trust me to capture these small moments. Sweet big sister never fails to make me have a good chuckle with an outtake keeper!

Family portrait session (Sarah, Mike, W, + V) – Wellesley, MA

With all the open fields + expansive green spaces, these two were running like Forrest Gump – all over the place + back again. They found the simple joy in just running without a destination, without an ulterior motive – just the feeling of being free + having space to roam. The touchingly sweet innocence of it all was so refreshing.

Sarah + Mike – the year wouldn’t feel complete without seeing your smiling faces! Thank you for sharing your beautiful littles with me once again.

Family portrait session (Ashley, Stefan, W, W, +W) – North Reading, MA

This session felt like a hat trick of sorts: the youngest of three brothers turning the big ONE! And I have been privileged to photograph all of these milestones for them ever since before the oldest took his first breath. And now the oldest looks out for the youngest, and the middle endearingly follows suit – they look out for him when he’s near water, hug him when he seems upset, and hold his hand when walking alongside him. Happy birthday, littlest W.

Ashley + Stefan – thank you so much for your trust over the years to document your three Ws!
