Lifestyle Family Session at Jamaica Pond | Boston Family Photographer | Joey

I was thrilled when Sarah got in touch about a session for Joey’s second birthday. I had met up with these guys the previous year, when Joey turned one, and this Lifestyle Family Session at Jamaica Pond was equally joyful. Tagging along with these guys while they hung out was heartwarming and incredibly fun. They spend a lot of time at Jamaica Pond and capturing this typical outing for them was so rewarding. It is the subtle, routine moments that bring us back and spark those feelings again: the way he holds your hand, the smoosh of his face when you kiss him, that laugh… I am so glad Sarah, Mike and Joey have a record of this day to bring back all the feelings they’ll want to hold onto. Thanks again for being so wonderful to work with guys!

Here’s Sarah, Mike & Joey’s Jamaica Pond Family Session from the previous year when he turned one!

“My heart is exploding and I’m only halfway through.

I need to take a break and come back to them before I end up in a puddle on the floor.
I love these so. freakin’. much.
As always, you did an incredible job.
Thank you,
Sarah”

Backyard Wedding in New Hampshire | New Hampshire Wedding Photographer | Brittney & Jason

Backyard weddings are my favorite. They are relaxed, intimate and focused on celebrating with those closest to you. Brittney and Jason’s Backyard Wedding in New Hampshire was all of these things and so enjoyable to document. These two are incredibly kind and their friends and family were so welcoming throughout the day. Each part of the day was genuine, natural and centered around the important union of Brittney & Jason. I want to thank them for inviting me to photograph such a special day for them – it was an absolute pleasure! Congratulation again guys!

Venue: Scott & Wendy Harrington’s Backyard!, Hair & Makeup: Portsmouth Spa (Alex & Stephanie) & Caterer: Lil’ Miss Sophie’s (Jess & Sue)

“Gina was the perfect choice for our photography! I was worried about being photographed professionally, but Gina put us right at ease and worked quickly and efficiently during the portrait session so we could get back to partying with our guests.

I was looking for someone who could capture the candid, real moments of the event in a beautiful and timeless way. Gina did just that. Our photos turned out wonderfully. I’m impressed she was able to get so many beautiful shots, even though we had a tight timeline and had to rush her at different points.

Her work speaks for itself, but her professionalism and lovely personality made the experience so positive for us. She was great at communicating in the weeks leading up to and after the wedding, and was easy to work with during the event. She’s kind, easy-going, and a pro at giving gentle direction when needed. She even stayed a few minutes later than we had scheduled to make sure we got all the shots we wanted before she left.

I hope I can hire her again for future photography shoots!

Thank you, Gina!”

Lifestyle Boston Newborn Session | Boston Newborn Photographer | Bradely & Maxwell

I met Stacey and Mike when their first born, Bradley, was a newborn so it was wonderful to document them with their second son, Maxwell, during their Lifestyle Boston Newborn Session. I came by in the morning and photographed them spending some uninterrupted time together as a family of four. They played with Bradley’s favorite trains, snuggled with Maxwell, sang and read books. I want to thank these four for inviting me into their home to preserve this fleeting time. A huge congratulations to you guys – you’re a beautiful family!

“Gina is a phenomenal photographer and true professional. She is extremely responsive, punctual, and communicates all of the necessary details before and after the shoot.

We asked Gina to take family photos of us with our toddler and newborn at our house. Working with an energetic, unpredictable two year old and a three week baby certainly has its challenges, yet Gina took it in stride and made it look easy. Her friendly, caring demeanor immediately put our whole family at ease. We felt so comfortable around her that we easily forgot that there was a camera there at times.

Gina beautifully captured real interactions and special moments between us. We now have a lovely collection of both candid and formal pictures that we will always cherish. The biggest problem we have now is selecting which photos to hang on our wall because we love them all! (…which is a great problem to have.) We could not be happier with our experience with Gina and highly recommend her!”

Fairmont Copley Plaza Wedding | Boston Wedding Photographer | Lindsay & Brett

Lindsay and Brett have big smiles and huge hearts. Documenting their Fairmont Copley Plaza Wedding was an absolute pleasure and I’m so grateful I could work with them! They got ready with a fantastic bunch of people and made their way to Old South Church for a beautiful ceremony. The joy and excitement that followed was incredible and Lindsay and Brett’s big puppy, Otis, joined them as well. They spent a few moments alone, in the heart of the city, to take it all in. I tagged along for some natural portraits then made my way back to the Fairmont Copley Plaza to document the celebrations. The ballroom was full of love and excitement and I was very impressed by the energy on the dance floor. I can’t thank these two enough for being so incredible to work with. I wish them a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness and want to congratulate them again!

Ceremony Venue: Old South Church; Reception Venue: Fairmont Copley Plaza; Videography: LMV Productions; Photo Booth: Modern Photo Booth & Co; Florist: Dana Markos Events; Lighting: Boston Event Lighting and Films; Cocktail Hour Band: John Salerno Music Productions & DJ: DJ Face Show

“Oh my!! These are incredible! I just spent hours looking at them and re- living our whole wedding! I laughed so much!!! I love love these pictures! You captured so many amazing moments!!! It’s so nice to see things that I missed throughout the night! Thank you for these great shots and for making our day so memorable.  It could not have gone any better and we owe much of it to you. Thanks for being so fun and great to work with!”

Documentary Family Session at Home | Boston Family Photographer | Molly, Geoff, Elan & Isla

These guys are my good friends and I’m so grateful we made time for their documentary family session at home. Molly and I met at Mama and Me when our little ones were a few weeks old and knowing them for nearly three years has been a godsend. On this winter morning, when I came by their home in Jamaica Plain, I brought my camera. I documented while they hung out, read books, ate breakfast and played with their Christmas presents. I love the everyday moments of family life that were captured. Thanks so much for inviting me (with camera) into your home guys – so glad we did this!
