family portrait in boston, ma {part II}

This is the second of three (maybe four) segments from my recent trip to Belmont, MA (which is just outside of Boston).

In my last post, you saw some photos that Diane had hired me to take of her sister’s family.   Later that same day, Diane’s dear mom hired me to photograph Diane and her gang.  We hit the road to find a new location… and landed at the luscious Harvard Square.  So without further ado, here are some of my favorites of Diane, Tom, Abby, Maddie, Henry, and Phoebe.


I was loving the Weeks Footbridge in Harvard Square, as our backdrop.  It is quite charming.  I love the bridge’s character (aka signs of age) that accompany it’s fantastic views of the Charles River down below.

See how beautiful this is.


I love the antique look I get from the Pioneer Woman’s Vintage Photoshop Action.

Family_2009_021I love this shot… it pairs great with the image above, but is so abstract on it’s own.

Family_2009_020I’m also quite keen on these next two shots.  This is a family full of teens, and they have such a great time together!


Love you guys…
