Documenting Pandemic Life | Boston Lifestyle Photographer

Without clients to photograph and with all the time in the world (sort of), I’ve found myself becoming more of a documentary photographer over the last two months. Having only my own family and the mundane details of our quarantined life to photograph has been challenging. I’ve been forced to look at the world in new ways, appreciating the simplest of details and recognizing that they’re worth documenting. I’ve also been challenged in terms of shooting in various lighting conditions. As we all know, life doesn’t only happen during golden hour, so I’ve taken pictures at noon on sunny days, and outside in the rain on the grossest of March days. Though I haven’t taken photos every single day, I’ve picked up my camera several days a week. These images certainly tell the story of washing our produce, and Greyson’s affinity for rain boots, “raingo” glasses, and no pants, ha!

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.
