Among the Flowers | Boston Portrait Photographer

The gardens at the Stevens Coolidge Place in North Andover are just so beautiful. While it’s a drive from Boston, it’s well worth it if a client is looking for a magical garden setting. It’s been well worth the season pass I purchase to do photo sessions there — especially in September. This family happens to live in the area and they knew what a gem of a spot it is. And so perfect to photograph little Julia as she frolicked and explored the property.
