The Blog

I closed my eyes and put this on repeat — over and over — until I could pretend I was passing through a spiritual barrier; pretend that I could, by some force of logic, fix it. The past weekend’s sugar overload added a pernicious, monkey-mind undercurrent, but I let the voice penetrate, permeate, untangle the mess of inscrutability I can’t seem to find a way out of, and for a few precious minutes, I didn’t care so much.

I like this live version better than the official video, (even though they both feature the amazing Hannah Peel), but to really get the full effect, you need to download the mp3 and turn all the lights off. Get some angst. It builds up slow, comes in with energy at about 4:30, and then drips with all his pain at 5:22. A friend of mine saw him sing this live in a parking lot after a show one night, and she said there wasn’t a dry eye. David Ford is simply amazing.

Charlie’s mom Laurie told me that they had been doing some pilates to make sure that Charlie would be able to sit up for her 6-month shoot. I’d say they did a pretty good job, wouldn’t you?

This is Charlie’s third time in front of my camera (see her other sessions here and here) and she has perfected her model gaze. Keeping the mystery alive.

CHUB!

Outside for a little bedrock surfing and wearing of the fancy bonnet:

Thanks to Laurie and Dave for providing sound effects and blowing bubbles. Charlie is SUCH a great baby. Can’t wait to see you again this summer!

Remember Evan? He burst onto the scene a little before Christmas, and according to his mom and dad, he has yet to take a nap. He was wide-eyed and game for anything during our shoot last week. Check out the lid. Don’t you think he should be holding court from the corner stool in some bar in Southie?

I love kids at this age — they’re all smiles and googly eyes and they can’t really go anywhere.

Meg and Brian wanted to include Bella, their adorable French Bulldog, in some of the shots. She was happy to oblige.

Gorgeous family:

The peepers on this kid are astounding.

Tune in again in a few months when Evan and Bella get their own show. Thanks to Meg and Brian for being super awesome and letting me hang out for the afternoon!

I love it when Ryan climbs into my head and writes songs just for me.

Paige is ONE. And she knows EXACTLY how to do it.

This is my fourth time photographing this little nugget (you can see her other shoots here, here,and here. I go absolutely Frootloopies when I get a request to do a First Year Package as it is such a joy to watch these babies go from brand new to walking in what seems like a heartbeat. Paige had mastered her feet only a week before this shoot, but she was motoring all over the place like a pro.

Paige and her family just moved into a gorgeous new house, and Paige has already staked out her spot by the front window so she can keep tabs on the neighborhood:

Let’s make Margaritas!

Just for a minute, I let myself miss those cute little baby details. Then I remembered diapers.

undefined

Look! I have goose poop!

Julie and Joe were totally game for going outside into the mud. LOVE them.

I’m sad to see Paige’s first year come to an end, but I feel so blessed to have been a part of it. A giant thank you to the whole family for welcoming me in and for hanging my photos all over the house!
