This session was unusual in a number of ways and made a pleasant change of routine. In these days of the internet and Google searches I find that most of my clients aren’t from my immediate surrounding towns. I get many clients from Boston and from towns throughout Massachusetts, and some from even further afield! These clients usually travel to my studio in West Concord above Nashoba Bakery or to one of the local parks I recommend. This family however was from my hometown in Littleton, which gave me the rare opportunity to do a newborn shoot indoors at their house.
Doing a portrait session in a house can be quite a tricky prospect, often the light is low and there is not much room to maneuver. The art of the photographer in these cases is too find the right combination of good light and uncluttered backgrounds that do not distract from the subject. In this case to add some variety a handheld flash was also used for some of the images to subtly add some extra light by ‘bouncing’ it off the walls of the room rather than pointed directly at the family to avoid any harsh shadows. This couple and their newborn made for perfect subjects, even the dog jumped in for a few shots. So it ended up being a great session and to top it all it was just a two minute drive around the corner back home again!

A splash of summer color

This session took place at one of my favorite locations, whatever time of year it is there are always settings available that produce great portraits. In this summer session there were wild flowers in the field to provide little splashes of color, which complemented the  lovely summer dress this little girl was wearing. I’m busy working on this order right now, here are some of the great images I’ve done already as I work my way through it:

This was an early spring session in the studio, this family visited with a delightful two week old newborn. We managed to get some nice interaction shots whilst baby was awake and then some serene sleeping shots after a little feed. For a change the images showcased in this blog entry are a couple of the prints ordered from the session, as a typical example of what the finished portraits look like. Shown here is a 20×10″ storyboard which is one of the studio’s most popular products. It works well with newborn portraits where face, full body, and a details shot can all be combined into a single image. The other image is a very popular 14×11″ digital matte, here the actual inside image is 11×8″ with a white border. It is hard backed with a special coating which means it can be mounted directly in a frame with no protective glass required – no more annoying reflections detracting from the portrait! One of the most satisfying parts of portrait photography is knowing these lovely images will be hanging on a wall provoking memories for years to come.

This lovely family came in to the studio for portraits to mark the traditional Korean 100th day celebration.   As it turns out the 3 month stage is a great age for baby portraits, they can often lift their head at this age and will be alert for most of the session. This 100th day turned out to be a great day for portraits!

Hopefully those hot summer days are coming… The blog has been a bit neglected recently and when going through the backlog of sessions I came across this image which made me laugh and I can’t resist sharing it! The session was actually in the fall and I will share the rest of it later this year when it is more seasonal, I love how this area allows so many different moods with the changing seasons.

Brothers in the studio

I’d taken portraits of this young boy previously as a newborn, now he brought in his new baby brother. It’s always special to capture those very first interactions between new siblings, and we also had some lovely timeless images of baby alone and mother and baby – a great session!

More outdoor goodness

Another session from last year to remind us what we can look forward to as the weather warms up – outdoors in the grass and flowers! This baby just loved sitting and playing in the grass and had a terrific brother to play and cuddle with, both were such happy children.

Newborn in Studio

Here we are into November and one thing is always the same at this time of year. I get very backdated with my blog. I’m taking a quick break from print work to post some images from a newborn session in studio. We keep our style very simple for these sessions, with minimal props. The use of a textured blanket for posing may be the only item. One of my favorite parts of these sessions is moments mother and baby share as can be seen  here.

In Studio

Just playing catch up here with some studio sessions from earlier in the Summer. Just had to blog a couple from this Saturday morning session. Such a lovely easy going family and lots of smiles from the youngest little guy!

8 Month Old In Studio

Here’s a beautiful little girl. Love the smile in the third image.  I photographed her sister at exactly at the same age @ 8 months old and it’s was a delight to see the family back in studio again. Loved  the cream dress here. Sometimes some dresses can look fussy on babies particularly if there’s lots of bows and the fabric is stiff. This one was simple in design, with soft pleated fabric to give some added texture and detail.  Perfect for portraits!
