On the Go | Brookline Family Portraits

I’ve been photographing this sweet boy and his family since he was a newborn baby. I love to see them every year, because there are so many changes since the time before. These Brookline family portraits took place at Larz Anderson Park in September of 2017.  Spencer was three and boy was he ON THE GO!

Can you see the look in his eyes here — he’s totally checking something out that he needs to explore.

And then sometimes they just need to be free. Because wouldn’t it be great to have all that energy and will to explore the world around you! This series cracks me up. He’s so happy!

Kids, especially this age, need to have the pressure off for the photo session to go well. Here, we have space for beautiful portraits, but also a place for diversion and FUN!Boston Family Portraits_0016.jpg

No session is complete without a couple of snuggles from mom.
