Belmont Family Session | Boston Family Photographer

Pretty much every Boston family photographer is ready for spring and summer and wildflowers! Actually, my favorite season for outdoor sessions is spring. Most photographers and families seem to love fall, but there’s nothing better to me than beautiful blossoms after 4 months of staring at barren wasteland, hahaha.

In any case, here’s a session from last summer at my absolute favorite location in the area. It was HOTTTT and humid, but this family embraced the sweat and never complained. We all had so much fun cracking poop jokes and getting these two boys engaged. Whatever it takes for photos, I say!

Initially I was a bit nervous for this session because one of these two lovely moms is a photographer herself, but I was also so flattered as they drove two hours on a weeknight to meet with me <3. There were just so many things I loved about the session, including mom’s dress. As a sidenote, if you’re looking for wardrobe guidance before your session, I can help! I now have a subscription to an online styling service called Honeytree Style & Select.
