Cartwheels, Piggyback Rides, and Tickles | Newton Family Photographer

I can’t look at this session without smiling. I’ve photographed both these girls as newborns and it was wonderful to see them so grown up, and so full of energy. Mom and dad totally goofed around with them to capture these fun loving images.  Sometimes families aren’t sure what to do at photo sessions.  With kids, I find just playing around with them elicits genuine smiles.  No one wants to sit around and smile for an hour at a camera. You know your kids best so play chase, give some piggy rides and focus on your kid(s), phone free for an hour. They’ll love it, I swear.

December Blog Circle | Boston Family Photographer

The holiday season is upon us and thus begins the time of year where we navigate the holidays.  We are raising the kids Jewish but we do celebrate Christmas at my family’s house. The allure of Christmas is strong and once the holiday lights are up and the kids start seeing trees up at other people’s homes the questions start rolling in.  My four year old once asked me if I was “Christmas” because Grandma and PapPap are “Christmas.”

Last year, Hanukkah and Christmas overlapped so we were able to share the lighting of the candles with my family.  Below is a photo from one of the eight nights and it just sums up how it went. It is my favorite holiday photo.  I’d give you the back story but there is so much going on and you can probably makeup your own stories from the expressions on everyone’s faces.

I’m part of a blog circle with some incredibly talented photographers where we share one photo along with some thoughts.  Please take a moment and continue to Jessie Nelson’s page.
