Young Mr. C… he has a million different expressions, each sweeter than the next. We had the pleasure of photographing him towards the end of the summer when the grass was a deep green. As we bring winter to a close, it felt timely to share these images of this little guy, who brightens the room.
We started the session at the Wellesley Public Library, because Mr. C loves books. There were also toys to play with.
Taking a break from the fun.
His special look for his mom.
Then we ventured outside the Wellesley Town Hall. With a fresh green backdrop and a comfortable spot under a tree, we played some more.
I love these cheeks.
Storytime was enjoyed outside more than in.
He is so inquisitive; he wanted to explore the park.
When he wasn’t enjoying his favorite toys.
Probably my favorite smile (though it is really hard to pick one). I just love the twinkle in his eyes.
Want more of Mr. C? Can’t blame you there. Check out his slideshow.
Junior is growing up and his family is simply growing. He has a new sister now. Of course, that meant a great chance to document his family and the ways it is changing. We joined them for a Sunday morning at their home.
First off, meet our superhero. Very serious.
He can wrestle them (or hug them).
And he can fly.
He loves being with his family.
He watches over his little sister (or at least that’s what I like to call it).
She’s a cute little gal.
And sweet coy smiles.
A few more… did I mention that Junior didn’t really like to sit still? Yup, not so much. His dad was having fun playing with him.
A recurring look on his face. Hilarious!

On a recent trip to California, we had the pleasure of meeting up with a couple of our past wedding clients who now have a one year old. We absolutely LOVE getting to see Allegro families grow and getting to meet the next generation. This little guy was an absolute doll. He has beautiful blue eyes like his mom and loves playing with his dad. I am so glad we had this chance to get together at a beautiful little park.
The ball is a favorite toy for sure.
Flying with daddy.
He loves being in his red wagon.
Especially standing up. Oh my!
"When can I climb this, momma?"
And of course, we captured a few more traditional portraits. I especially love when mom and dad are in the photos. I know most parents want photos of their children, but years from now, the value of the photos will increase, because the children will want these photos of them with their parents.
And one last fun one as our little buddy considers what mischief he can cause next.
Hugs to the whole family and thank you so much for inviting us to capture these images for you!

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing the creative ladies of SD Events. Their team was growing and changing and that called for a new set of photos for this talented crew. So please allow me to introduce…
Tasha Bracken, the founder of SD Events, she not only has vision, but she is extraordinarily calm and organized. When I work with her, I know that my job will be that much easier because she has everything covered.
Next, please meet Ivy Finn. Ivy is the newest member of the team and is known for her unexpected ideas and her enthusiasm. She has created parties from fantistically fun bar and bat mitzvahs to sophisticated charity events.
And finally, Jessica Feroli. Jess is a talented event producer as well as keeping the office in tip-top shape. She loves all of the do-it-yourself projects that go along with event planning and brings her skills to the table with imagination.
If you are looking for a planner for your next event, I would highly recommend giving these ladies a call. They are based outside Boston and have worked around the world. They will wow you with their knowledge and inspired ideas!
Just to give you a taste of the excitement they can bring to an event, check out their studio. I love this space. It’s chic and modern and bold. Simply beautiful!
Love this San Jose family. Their older boy is full of energy and so engaging and his new baby brother is all about cuteness. We met up with them about a month after the little guy was born. We had a warm sunny California day. Their home and yard were the perfect backdrops for the portrait session.
Or trying at least.
One more bit of fun. Anything for an orange.

Last spring, we celebrated this young woman’s graduation with a portrait session on the MIT campus, her new alma mater. She was embarking on a grand adventure, moving across the country to a new job and it just felt right to commemorate her time here in the Boston area. She is a bright, beautiful young woman with the world ahead of her. We wish her all the best in her journey!
For this family, change was part of their DNA. First the couple added their beautiful baby boy to the mix. Then they moved into a new home in Belmont, which they had custom designed. So when all of the changes were complete, it was time to have their portraits made in their new home.
The home offers amazingly beautiful light from oversized windows. We, of course, took advantage of that.
A few tidbits… hands.
This little guy is a big ham. Such cuteness.
Smiles for his mom.
I wonder what he is thinking.
Smiles with his dad.
The many faces of our boy.
Mom and dad are into really cool old cars. It’s important to pass on the love.
Not so sure.
One last image… one of my faves. Weighing the baby.
I really can’t get enough of this little guy and his parents. We had so much fun hanging out, celebrating all their new adventures.
Coming together to celebrate a very special birthday, grandma’s 75th, this family wanted to document the three generations in a beautiful portrait. They were having lunch at the Boston Ritz and we figured it would be the perfect place to meet. Plus we had hoped to go to the Commons or the Public Gardens if the weather cooperated. Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate, but fortunately the Ritz did. The staff gave us access to their event spaces so we would have some privacy for the portraits. Window light added the beautiful glow. But all of the warmth definitively comes from this family.
To kick things off, the birthday girl…
Love this one.
Total hams. They had been asking to do this for the whole session and we were thrilled for them to finish it off with their daring feat.

Thrilled to share a few photos from a fall family portrait session. We absolutely adore this crew. You can feel their warmth, their playfulness and their enjoyment spending time together. For their portraits, we focused on the ways in which they interact. I hope you will enjoy the hugs, the laughter, the joy of the trampoline, and the freedom of a bike ride. I am pleased to introduce one of our favorite Wellesley families.

The thing about being a photographer is that it is all too easy to miss documenting your own life. And even more challenging to create photos of you with your family. We knew we wanted photos with our Giant Schnauzer Max (we have tons of images of him, and tons of him with each of us, but very few with him and both Dave and I). We also knew we were not alone in needing photos with our beloved canine baby. Amy Hawkes of Click Imagery is a supremely talented photographer in the Boston area, and she has a fabulous furkid, Jaxon. So we proposed a trade.
Amy and Jax, all smiles.
Love how Jaxon looks up at Amy. So expectant and attentive.
Amy has a great sense of humor. This one absolutely captures the amusement in her relationship with Jaxon.
Jaxon is a ball dog. And for those of you who have ball dogs, you understand the intensity involved.
Communicating about the ball.
A simple portrait of Amy’s best friend.
Dave was fascinated with Jax’s squirrel like tail. (I imagine this was because Max didn’t have one, but I can’t be sure.)
We left the cover of the trees for the warmth of the grasses. Jaxon has beautiful bright brown eyes.
Another thing about Amy, she’s a competitive runner and triathlete. So she and Jax often enjoy jogging together.
Oh and a super cute High 5 trick.
One last image, I think this is Dave’s favorite from the whole furkid session. So funny and whimsical.
Many thanks to Amy and Jaxon for spending the afternoon with us in Wellesley and being such great models. We love you guys!
