I am so excited to share this photo session of baby Benjamin taken downtown in Boston’s Fenway district. Remember these intimate maternity photos from the Esplanade last summer? Well that bump is now an 8 month old beautiful baby boy, Benjamin! Mom and dad are clearly enamored by B, and these images illustrate why I love this age to photograph. Chubby, curious, wide-eyed, but not usually quite mobile yet. The best!
We decided to start the photo shoot at their current apartment in Fenway (made sure to include the soccer ball from the maternity session). We then took a walk to the nearby Fens where Mom used to walk to often, trying to encourage labor. The trees were blooming – it was beautiful, even if cloudy! We eventually got kicked out by the angry mama goose.
The session ended at good old Fenway Park. This photo destination is always fun, with the bold green and red colors. So geared towards family too. I got in the mood and sang “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” to get Baby B’s attention.
A bittersweet end – this kind family is headed back to their real home of Rio, Brazil in a couple months. I’ll miss them, but am happy for all the extended family members that get to enjoy the deserved company of this cutie-pie.
