Belmont Child Photographer: Bright

I’m going to let you into the world of child photographers for a minute. There’s a feeling of pure joy, and excitement… not unlike that of a little kid on Christmas day, when the card in your camera contains images that simply make you giddy excited to see in your editing software. Sometimes that’s because the light came through just the right way on the one pose that mattered, sometimes it’s about getting that one pose form your head just right, and sometimes it’s because you managed to capture the natural personalities of your families just the right way. In this session, it was the latter for me, and I reveled at the ease it was to photograph these guys.[…]See more from “Belmont Child Photographer: Bright”

I really get a kick when a get to photograph family at a location they have a connection to. In this case, it just so happens that this mini session shoot took place where J works. It wasn’t why I had picked it, but it just worked out that way. As much as I hate to make someone come to work on a week-end, I think in this case it was for a good reason, and I hope he didn’t mind waking up early… again… on a week-end 😉 I met J and J through mutual friends, who I have been photographing for the past 5 years. My business has grown so much through my past client referrals. I thank[…]See more from “Belmont Mini Session Photographer: Back at school”

Belmont Family Portrait: I can totally see it!

Do you ever look at photos of yourself as a child, or maybe your own kids as babies and marvel at how many of the (current) features in the mirror were present even then? I was looking through my family portrait photos with these guys the other day. Yes, photographers get nostalgic too!, and came across a session I did with them when little M was about six months old. See, I see her face from back then and totally see the her of today in it. Don’t you? Sure, her hair is lighter, and those baby cheeks have melted, but it’s all there. E feels like she just keeps getting taller too… well, and has been bribing the tooth[…]See more from “Belmont Family Portrait: I can totally see it!”

I vividly remember the holiday photo session I had for my family when our oldest was 4 and youngest was 2. The 4 year old? Not so much into photos. A family portrait of everyone looking at the camera? Not that year! The closest we got to having all 4 of us in the frame was when my husband and I doled out Oreo cookies and we had two mini sharks going for the cream filled, round cookie goodness. The two kids together in a shot alone? Didn’t happen. Still, it was a great session, and I love every photo. Why am I bringing this up? Because as a mom on the other side of the camera, I totally get[…]See more from “Belmont Mini Session Photographer: Go with the fire hydrant”

Right before I left on my anniversary trip (more on this soon, I promise!), I met with L and her guys for an extended family photography session. I’m always curious how people hear about me and my photography work. It’s usually one of the first thing I ask when a new client reaches out. In L’s case, though, I knew… our youngest, and their oldest shared years together in the same preschool. Even though our little guy doesn’t go there anymore, he still talks about his buddy all the time. He considers him his best friend and “writes” him cards. As a matter of fact, the morning of our session, before I pulled out my camera to get started, I[…]See more from “Belmont Family Photographer: Extended Family”
