Fall Mini Remix

We’re back with round two of our annual family mini sessions – this time we’re focusing on our fall sessions! We’ve got a mix of families here from both Minnesota and New England. Over half of these were shot by Chuck – and we’re loving each and every shot – not that it’s hard to […]

We’ve got a mix of families here from both Minnesota and New England. Over half of these were shot by Chuck – and we’re loving each and every shot – not that it’s hard to make these sweet kids look good. We love the rich fall colors and grey skies in these photos – many people think they need a full sun shiny day for photos but the overcast fall skies provide a different look that is just as beautiful, if not more so. We anticipate many a holiday card with these photos, and have to figure out a way to get our own family on Chuck’s Mini Session roster next year because I’ll admit we’re a bit jealous! Don’t ever hesitate to reach out to learn more about our Mini Sessions. We don’t market them openly because we have such limited space, but we’re happy to include you on our e-mail announcements if you’re interested in the next round. As always, thank you to these beautiful families to allow us to document their growing families.

The C Family

This session is so refreshing, isn’t it? From the darling squishy newborn baby to the older brothers who infused their own personalities into the shoot, we just love that this shoot is a real-life depiction of what life is like in a household full of small children. The C family is no stranger to our […]

The C family is no stranger to our lens – they participated in a fall mini session marathon with Chuck in Arlington, MA last fall, so when they contacted us to document their next new chapter we were honored to get them in front of the camera again. Chuck did a fantastic job (as always!) documenting this beautiful family and we hope they enjoy the photos for a long time to come. Congratulations on the beautiful new addition!

Summer Family Session Remix

It’s hard to believe that not only is summer a distant memory, but FALL is quickly fading as well. Something we’ve loved as our business has grown has been the growth of the family photo portion of our business. It’s only natural that as our wedding clients settle into their new stages that they are […]

Something we’ve loved as our business has grown has been the growth of the family photo portion of our business. It’s only natural that as our wedding clients settle into their new stages that they are adding love to their life with pets and children. The family mini session has become quite popular in the photography world – and for good reason. It’s a fast and affordable way to document your family’s growth from year to year. We’ve come to hold two family mini session marathons here on Summer Street – one in the summer and one in the fall. We just completed our fall rendition of our mini sessions, but our blog has been a bit…delayed….as of late – so today we’re sharing our summer rendition of the Mini Session remix. Photographing kids and families always keeps us on our toes, and we’ve loved exploring how to best capture each family dynamic and child – even if they prefer to run away from the camera rather than toward. There’s something unpolished about this body of work that we’re building but that feels right. Childhood (and hey – life!) is not about pressed khaki’s and white shirts on the beach. It’s the runny noses, bear hugs, scrapes and kisses from Mom and Dad – all these little things add up to a really beautiful conglomeration of what raising kids is like. And someday we hope parents look back at these moments and think of just how sweet and small their kids were, as well as the expansive amounts of energy it takes to keep up with them. After all, life is lived between the pretty and perfect photos, and that’s the way it’s supposed to be.

Baby L

Couldn’t let any more time pass before sharing some sweet photos Chuck captured of Baby L and his family on his first few days at home. It’s such a gift to capture these moments for families. Little L is nearly 6 months now (!) but his sweet squishy cheeks and soft skin are too precious […]

It’s such a gift to capture these moments for families. Little L is nearly 6 months now (!) but his sweet squishy cheeks and soft skin are too precious not to share with the world. Chuck documented this session with us and we are always so smitten with his ability to catch the little nuances during these momentous milestones. The way the pets give him the side eye – unsure of all the newness that surrounds them….the tiny fingers whose fingernails are still peeling from being submersed in fluid for 9 months….the awe and exhaustion in the eyes of new parents….these things are real and worth documenting, however transient they are at the time. But then you look at the sweet innocence and dependence of this little babe in their arms and know that it’s all worth it. Thank you for allowing us to capture your beautiful family, Katie and Anthony.

The S Family

In a world where time seems to fly faster than any of us can keep up with, there are two things that slow us down: birth and death. While we honor and respect the end of life process, our work has focused on many beginnings for people: new relationships, new marriages, new life. And while […]

While we honor and respect the end of life process, our work has focused on many beginnings for people: new relationships, new marriages, new life. And while both seasons of life teach us many things, we’ve found great joy in our work where life and love are expanding.  It was without question then – when the S family reached out to ask us to document their growing family this summer as they welcomed a little girl into their lives that we were honored. It’s clear that baby L seems to have found her place among this joyful trio, now happily a team of four. Chuck documented this session for us, and we are smitten with the results. Even among the happy chaos of a busy toddler flying around there is still a quiet dependency and bond developing within this family as they meet the needs of sweet little L. She’s a lucky little peach, and we were glad to have the privilege of meeting these four during this special season of their lives.

Baby K

This post makes us so happy! Jessica and Shaunt were married during our early early days as a business, and were one of the first couples to see potential in our work. We’ve all come a long way since those days, but their wedding at The Commanders Mansion in Watertown remains one of our favorites […]

Jessica and Shaunt were married during our early early days as a business, and were one of the first couples to see potential in our work. We’ve all come a long way since those days, but their wedding at The Commanders Mansion in Watertown remains one of our favorites still. Jessica and Shaunt are a fantastic pair, and through their five years of marriage have had a heck of a ride. At their lowest, Jessica almost lost her life to a serious brain aneurysm. With the gift of modern medicine and a whole lot of love from Shaunt, their rescue dogs and their loving family and friends, she’s made a full recovery and their newest accomplishment just blossomed into life: baby K. They welcomed a daughter into the world in June and asked us to document some of the early days for their memories. Chuck photographed this sweet family in their (envy-inducing) home which is brimming with love and life. It’s so great to see such a deserving pair hold this kind of happiness in their arms. Congratulations Jessica + Shaunt!

The S Family

We’ve got the sweetest family session to share with you today. The S family came into the studio to celebrate the arrival of their newest member with some updated family shots.

If there is one thing I learned, it’s that these two kiddos are lucky to have their loving, thoughtful and kind parents to lead their way through the years. What a gift. It fills our hearts to document these memories for families like the S Family, and we are honored to photograph this new chapter in their lives.
