Bellini Portraits » Bellini Portraits : Boston Newborn Photographer, Boston Children's Photographer, Boston Family Photographer, Boston Maternity Photographer

mother and child portraits boston bridgewater south shore south coast maOver the last eleven years I have had the pleasure of photographing so many incredible families including some magnificent mothers and their babes. During this time my love of capturing the tender bond between mother and child has become a passion. Being a mother I know just how fleeting these years really are with our children. While the days can sometimes feel thankless and exhausting I always remind myself of this adage;

The days are long, but the years are short.

I hold these Motherhood portrait sessions near and dear to my heart. The connections I’ve been honored to witness and capture for my clients have filled me up and at times left me breathless. In honor of Mother’s Day, I will be gifting a Custom Portrait Session to a deserving mom and her children.

Do you know a woman who would love portrait photography that hasn’t had time to think about herself and that would truly treasure the experience? Maybe it’s somebody who has experienced loss, someone who is selfless beyond measure with family and in charitable ways, or simply does not have the means to hire a professional photographer. Maybe she’s a single mom doing it all, a foster mom, a caretaker or somebody who has recently fell ill.

You know someone.

    source - Awesome things here. I’m very glad to look your post.
    Thanks a lot and I am looking forward to contact you.
    Will you please drop me a e-mail?

What’s the best part of Spring for you?  For me it has to be the lilacs and their incredible fragrance.  They are one of my favorite flowers–peonies being my all time fav! So to celebrate the coming of sprintgime and Mother’s Day coupled with my love of motherhood portraiture I will be offering a very special Mommy & Me mini session event on May 5th.

These motherhood sesssions will be hosted in an adorable waterfront cottage in Fairhaven, Massachuetts.  It is a combination of Anthropologie meets Urban Outfitters.  A little mid-century meets a little boho with a splash of 70’s chic. These mini sessions are for mom and baby/child and will focus closely on your loving bond and connection. 

Sessions will be 20 minutes in length and you have the option to book two back to back for a more custom experience.  As always I am happy to work very closely with you to find the *perfect* wardrobe for you and your little ones.  Kick of you shoes, we are going to get cozy!

I am sooooo excited about these and hope you are too!  This is an incredible gift for yourself. Tell your spouse or significant other that capturing this precious and ever fleeting time with your children is everything you could want this Mother’s Day. I am looking forward to seeing old faces and to meet some new faces, too!

I’m not sure why I bother with new years resolutions….

It’s February 19th and my “blogging at least once per week” has not been even remotely successful since my last on December 29th. I have so many beautiful sessions to share that i just need to buckle down and get the images prepared because I am really very excited for you to experience even a taste of what these evenings gave us.  The energy, the sunsets, the tides, the moon rises….it all just fills me up with such gratitude on so many levels.  I am jumping around quite and instead of heading back to 2016 to finish up what has yet to be journaled here, I am going to take a more recent step back to this past summer.  I photographed these girls about 4 years ago and was so happy to get the chance to see them again, more grown up, outgoing and playful.  The evening could not have been more beautiful–a welcomed change after being rained out twice prior.  I’m sharing as it’s definitely one of my favorites from 2017 and I hope you love it too!

    Kelsey - Hi! I was wondering if you offered beach photo shoots for one person (instead of family). I want lifestyle photos for my instagram, and website! I am an online health coach! The beach family photoshoot above is BEAUTIFUL, and everything I want for my photoshoot! Let me know! Thank you.

Christmas Card 2017…each year I’ve tried to come up with something new and better than the year before. I wanted to do something beautiful AND clever, leaving the composited polar bear and photoshopped reindeer behind. About 5 years ago I did a retro shoot for The Measure and had this gorgeous 1964 Mercury Comet as a prop, thanks to my wonderful neighbor who was kind enough to let me use it. I knew at some point I would want to use it for a personal shoot but for the past couple of years I just couldn’t make it happen. On my way to scout a farm location I passed by this old diner, put it in my mental rolodex for a future shoot and kept driving. Knowing that I was using the car for this year’s holiday card it was a no brainer that the diner would be the perfect backdrop.  The boys’ outfits were already purchased and it was serendipitous that it all coordinated with the Star Drive-in sign.  All my anxiety about having it make sense, be clever and look great was all for naught. In my eyes, it couldn’t have turned out any better. Proud mama here! People have asked if I’m already thinking of next year’s card–YES! Yes I am! I figure I only have a handful of years that the kids will humor me with these shoots so I am going to take advantage of it as long as I can!

And the printed card…it took me two days to come up with the wording!!  Was it going to be simply “Have a good old fashioned Christmas”? Nope. Not when you have Comet, the name of one of Santa’s reindeer, to play with 😉

Until next year……
