Here’s a moment of honesty: Sometimes, when I have 5 family sessions in one weekend, I forget details. I know where I’m supposed to be and what time I’m supposed to be there, but I may forget the amount/ages of children I’m about to go photograph. Let’s just say that happened. So when I got to the Armbrester’s house early last Sunday morning, it was the BEST MORNING EVER. Because, LOOK:

Russ was SO ready for the start of his modeling career. Tom was a little wary of the idea.

The first time I met Sloan, she was still in her mamma’s belly. The second time she was two weeks old. Then she was six months. And NOW before my eyes/camera, she has grow into a gorgeous, smiley-but-cautious, dimple-faced ONE year old! She’s quite amazing, and I can prove it:

PROVED IT. Love them. <3

The last time I photographed this gorgeous family, their littlest lovie was just a few weeks old! We had a great morning exploring Wellesley College and finding all the good spots for fall family photos. Luckily there was still some foliage out for us! Take a peek at my favorites from their session.

Big sis Dahlia was a funny as ever. I heard all about her Elsa Halloween costume and all the other Elsa and Olaf costumes she saw out on Halloween. She even recited some of her favorite lines of the movie to me:)

Schwartz family, you are so fun!:)Hope you love your sneak peek. <3 S

Some of my best, most favorite photos from Fall 2013 were from the sweet Moran family’s Tufts session! They recently moved to the ‘burbs, and invited me over to capture some real life, real time, real happy photos in their new backyard. I was so excited! I often say that I love in-home sessions, but backyard sessions miiiiight become a thing, too.

Little Ry is big now! And big sis Claire is hilarious as ever! The first thing they showed me was their swing set, which is an ideal session prop:)Take a look!

This is just one of Claire’s many adorable faces. She’s a little actress!

Their new house came with a little house and Ry has claimed it. It’s his favorite place to be. Once he went in, it took a lot of bribing for him to come back out!

The ‘woods’, as the kiddo call it, had the most perfect evening sunshine. I drove through sprinkles and dark clouds, but the sun decided to shine just for the M fam!

Both of these photos were Claire’s ideas! (She’s good.)

And exchange went down, from Dad to Ryan, and Ryan back to Dad: “You’re handsome!” “No, you’re handsome!” on and on. :D
