violet and pearls : boston baby portraits

When I was a little girl my grandmother used to call me Precious Pearl. The name came to be because there was  a doll called Poor Pitiful Pearl. I’ve been told that I used to mostly walk around with a grumpy look on my face. I don’t doubt it. Many of the photos I’ve seen of me show that little scrunched up face underneath my oh-so stylish bowl cut, and my arms crossed across my chest with a “don’t mess with me” look. She loved me no matter my grumpy face or not so the “Poor Pitiful” part was dropped for “Precious”.  She passed away when I was in college back in 1996.  I can still remember her voice.  There are smells that can bring me right back to her kitchen in Tequesta, Florida.  One of my favorite pictures of her is one I took in high school, sitting at my kitchen table in Vermont, looking at me lovingly, no doubt in my mind saying “Precious Pearl” to herself. 

Meet Violet.

I did a shoot with her big brother four years ago.  I loved it so much then and still do to this day.  Unlike the last shoot he wanted ZERO to do with this session.  There were a lot of tears but he did finally come around at the end.  And I got a smile from him, even though he tried his best to *never* give in!  This gave me lots of time to focus on Violet and the interaction between her and her mother.  There is something so pure and raw about a mother’s love for her children.  Motherhood photography is something that I hold near and dear to my heart.  I feel fulfilled when I am lucky enough to be witness to these moments.  Mom wanted to incorporate some of her own pearls for this shoot and I love the feminine, opalescent strands draping over her beautiful baby skin.

I would LOVE to capture these precious moments with you and your little ones!  If you are interested in setting up a mommy and me session or incorporating all your loved ones for a family portraits I would love to speak with you!
