Christmas Journey : Boston Children’s Photographer

The evolution of a concept. 

It’s been brewing for three, maybe four years.  It’s evolved in stages, from a flying bed care of Bert & Ernie on Sesame Street coming to fruition as my vintage wrought iron bed strung with lights in the shape of a sail.  Followed by a baby Christmas tree being pulled on a vintage wooden sled.  From a lone Christmas tree in a beautiful wooden dory in a harbor to finding a gorgeous handmade dory on Craigslist that I knew I HAD TO HAVE even just for this shoot.  This year my vision came to life. 

I’m a procrastinator by nature.  This was the very last day I could shoot to enlist the help of my husband to bring the boat down to the lake we live next to.  He was leaving on his annual heli-skiing trip  and the kids had a half day at school which meant I had enough time to prep and get them dressed before the sun went down.  Knowing how incredibly picky they are with clothing that may or may not have been a total battle!!  Of course, with my luck, this day happened to be 30 degrees and 30mph winds.  Not ideal!   However, while I did wind up rushing through it and didn’t shoot until the fun fully dipped below the tree line because the kids were too cold, I am happy with the results. 

That’s a wrap for 2015.   I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday! 


And the magical version I envisioned…
