I loved spending time with this beautiful family in their Concord, MA home for their in home family portraits! In home sessions are some of my most favorite, as they allow moments of intimacy and authenticity that don’t always happen when we meet at a local park. We spent the session reading her favorite story books, stacking blocks, and documenting special snuggles as a family. I can’t wait to share more when the black and white film scans return!

I recently had the incredible honor of photographing this beautiful maternity session for a mother of twins on the way. It was so special in and of itself, but her story and her years of waiting made it that much more meaningful.

It was more than 5 years ago that I met Mary. She was leaving her corporate job to pursue her larger than life dream of working with expecting mothers- she wanted to become educated and specialized in every niche of motherhood from doula services, to lactation consulting, to planning the perfect baby shower.

I watched her first hand guide my close friend through her first birth experience, and I have never seen anyone more perfectly fitted to do so. It was 5 years ago that I photographed head shots for her to use on her new website she was planning, and dream life she was building, and 5 years ago that we sat in my favorite New Haven coffee shop where she told me she wanted so much to have a baby of her own, but until that happened she would pour herself into the new families of others. That she would do everything she could to help mothers be mothers, as she waited to be one herself.

She’s the kind of woman that you meet and instantly know what a gift it was to spend time with her because she’s just that incredible, and you sit & hope that all the good in her rubs just a little off on you.

It was 5 years ago that she told me as a brand new photographer, that she wanted to book her maternity session, even though she wasn’t expecting yet, because she knew she wanted me to photograph her when it did happen, and jokingly teased that she knew my prices would just increase as my business grew so she thought she should book then. As a brand new photographer I was floored by her faith in me.

Year..after year began to go by. Hoping. Another year. I prayed. She kept hope. Another year. More hoping. More praying. More than 5 years. And then…I got the text. “Remember when I booked that maternity session 5 years ago?” …I cried.

She is expecting TWINS this winter, and we FINALLY planned together her dream maternity session on the beach in Madison, Connecticut. The wind was cold, but you would never know it from the joy we all felt during that hour on the sand. 

What a beautiful gift. Here are a few of my favorite black & white portraits from her maternity session, photographed with both digital and medium format film.

The sweetest of black & white film scans landed in my inbox last night and I could just melt over this one!

Two special things to share about why I love this image:

(1) I love that it was photographed in their home, in the rocking chair of the brand new nursery they thoughtfully designed for their baby girl. Years, and even decades from now this mama can look at very this photograph and remember all of the moments spent snuggled in this very corner as their baby girl grew.

(2) She decided to have me come when their baby girl was a few months old, instead of of a couple weeks. Now I adore a brand new baby and the photographs that are taken in the very beginning, but don’t feel locked into that, or feel like you missed photographs as meaningful as this one just because you weren’t quite ready. I love when my clients work together with me so we can figure out the best fitting session time for their new family- and this one was so perfect!

I can’t wait to share more from this in-home session!!!
