I was looking forward to this session as soon as we booked it. A family in the Boston’s South End, with a one-year-old little girl. It reminded me so much of when we lived in the South End when Grace was born (we stayed there until she was two). It was awesome to have a baby in the city (aside from hauling her and all her stuff up to the third floor of our walk-up). The best thing about living in the city was that we could walk everywhere. I put in a lot of miles pushing the stroller along the brick sidewalks of our neighborhood to the market or to pick up take out. We spent many hours with her at Sparrow and Ringold Park and watching Molly run around Blackstone Square with the other dogs. So, doing this session brought me back to those days with our little city baby, and made me miss living there a whole lot.
But enough reminiscing. Let’s get to these photos from this session back in the Fall. We started out at home, because that is always a great place to start with a toddler. It gets them comfortable with me, and allows us to capture the family in their little nest.
And of course we had to make a quick trip up to the roof deck.
And then off to the park.
I love how she’s just teensy bit wobbly, but is ready to go on her own.
Such beautiful eyes. They seem like a mixture of blue and green and hazel.
Still full of smiles despite missing her nap that day!
I think she looks like her mom here!
