Belmont, MA First Birthday Session | Boston Family Photographer

[pp_gallery id=”3875″ style-id=”__full-size-images__”]

Do you know what the best best best thing about being a family photographer is??? Seeing kiddos grow up right before your eyes (or camera lens??)! It literally seems like just yesterday that I was groggily heading over to this family’s home for baby B’s newborn session. I was pretty sleep-deprived because I had a one-month old myself! This little lady was actually the first newborn I shot post-pregnancy, and fortunately for me, she was a breeze to photograph.

Now here we are a year later! For her first birthday session, we headed to my favorite places for family photography sessions in the ‘burbs of Boston. There was a lot of backward hand-waving, blowing kisses, and eating cake like a CHAMP! Happy birthday, baby girl <3.


Oh hey! I’m Melissa, a Boston family & newborn photographer, but I like to refer to myself as a toddler-whispering, child-taming, photographic ninja.
