Timothy - Newborn Session - Central MA Newborn Photographer - Massachusetts Newborn Photographer - Dandelion Wild Photography

Baby Timothy is one of the cutest little strawberry blonds to ever grace my studio. He didn’t have much competition but still. He’s my first little almost full blown redhead and that was pretty exciting because if you know me, you know how much I love my red heads. If you have read hair, you bet your butt I’m going to touch it. And I don’t even care if you get mad or think it’s weird because it’s totally worth it. Check out mom’s gorgeous locks. Yep. Jealous!!!! And I may have pretended it was out of place so I could just give it a little toss one more time. It’s gorg. Ugh. In my next life I’m coming back as a redhead. If there is a God or God’s I hope you hear this request. I’ve been pretty darn good in this life…so I can’t see why not.

Now I didn’t hit the genetic jackpot as I’m one of those blondies turned brunette now I pay a bunch of money to make it blond again but I don’t maintain it so I just say it’s balayage and then I’m trendy and not just cheap or lazy. :)

I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting lately, and I’m so done with social media. I’m like…done done. It’s way too much to maintain and like…no one sees my posts. I’m so much more motivated writing a little blip about your sweet family on my website and then you can share it on social media if you so choose. I’m just not into it anymore. I’m not sure what happened. But I have no interest. I think it was a combination of wasting time and being annoyed and worried all the time because I saw and knew too much. Now that I’m ignorant and have a ton more time…life is a lot less stressful. I think what I’m going to do is just run my website. I don’t even care if I get like 10 clients a year. I’d be happy if I just had one of you to come see me once in awhile to update your family photo. I love this job. And I love the simple life. I want both. And I can have both if I do it right! :)

When you receive your gallery you will also receive a link to your blog post. Share if you will! I’d love it. It won’t be like this blog post. It will be all about your session and how perfect you all are. Because you are. Exactly the way you are. And so many things make you special and I’ll highlight those things. And all your Facebook friends will agree and hopefully love your images as much as we do and inquire. :)

If not, oh well. I tried. You tried. And that’s all I ask.

In the mean time…Lets just all oooo and ahhhh over how adorable this brand new family of three is.

Mother's Day Mini Sessions

Mother's Day Mini Sessions will soon be in full swing! This year, Mother's Day Minis are all about family. That's what mom's love most right? So, these sessions are not limited to moms and their children; it's for mommas who want an updated family photo, a few of just her kids, a few of herself with her kids, and maybe a few of herself with the man that helped her start it all! Or maybe helped her rebuild it all, whatever dynamic your family may bring. Even bring old Fido along for the fun! Everyone knows I love my furbabies!

Whatever it is that momma wants, momma is getting! (In regards to her Mother's Day family photos anyway!) :)

Mother's Day is so special. We work so hard to make sure everyone and everything is taken care of, we deserve at least one day to be recognized for that. <3 My girls are so sweet, they want nothing more than for me to be happy at every waking second of every single day. I don't know about you, but that's just not possible for me. I'm not the happiest person when I get up in the morning...so my girls kindly wake me up with big smiles and shower me with lots of hugs and kisses before they ask me to make them breakfast...immediately...before their stomachs eat themselves.

On Mother's Day...it's like that times infinity. They want to be a part of everything that day. From the moment I wake up to the moment I go to bed. They attempt to make me breakfast, draw me beautiful pictures, pass me sweet notes, try to help me around the house, etc. Tremendous effort is evident. These girls are my world and on Mother's Day, they remind me that I'm theirs too.

These times are so fleeting. I wish they would just slow down. But they won't. And there's nothing we can do to even make a dent in the speed in which time travels.

The closest we can get to freezing time...is allowing someone to take that photo. <3

Allow me. <3

Christmas Tree Farm Mini Session - Massachusetts Photographer - Family Photography MA - Holiday

Often times I get requests to show more of a certain session. I don't like to share too many images from a session because I want it to be a surprise for the family receiving them. Often times, I'm too busy to go back to a session to post more. But since I have a little extra time on my hands, here's a little more from one of the Christmas Tree Farm sessions I offered this year.

I can't even tell you how many times these kids told each other and their parents that they loved them, because I lost count. They were oh so sweet and very well behaved. We ran through the Christmas Tree Farm on that chilly afternoon. Up and down the rows of trees. It was beautiful and this family just added the warmth.

That little peanut in the middle came earlier this year to celebrate her first birthday! I can't believe how big she has gotten. She is so lucky to have such loving big brothers!

I gotta share last year's Christmas photo with this years...

She is certainly one very loved little girl. And big brother sure has a very determined way of showing his love for her. <3

M Family Maternity

I met up with this gorgeous family and captured Rosie's maternity photos.  At the time these were taken they were impatiently waiting to find out the gender of their baby! I love surprise genders!  I waited to find out with both of our girls and I swear the wait is worth it!

Rosie has been my best friend since we graduated high school.  Not long... ;)...but she's a better friend to me than most. Here she is with her pup and husband, Tim.  I could not have picked a better man for her.  He makes her the happiest.  Something I had always hoped for for her.

This spot is gorgeous.  I used to spend a lot of time hiking and exploring the woods.  I remember discovering this little spot back in high school.  Now every time I'm in this area, I visit it.  It's very peaceful and serene, as you can see. 

Rosie's husband and I share a favorite animal.  We both LOVE moose.  We were both hoping one would stumble out of the woods for a drink and photo bomb them, but unfortunately, that didn't happen. Maybe next time.

Ugh I can't get over all this gorgeousness.  These two were very sweet together.  Just look at them. They are absolutely madly in love.

Their little babe arrived on June 29 and they are the parents of a beautiful baby boy.  I can't wait to meet the little man.  <3
