A Day to Remember / Metrowest Family Photo Session https://www.claudiaphotography.com/blog/2020/1/a-day-to-remember-/-metrowest-family-photo-session This session with a family I have been photographing for many years happened last summer at Cochituate State Park in Natick. I love this park for many reasons, the muted colors of the lake contrasting so beautifully with the colorful boats. And the woods, adding a lush of green and gorgeous filtered light through the trees.

Shiny Happy Kids / Wellesley Family Photography https://www.claudiaphotography.com/blog/2015/10/shiny-happy-kids Sometimes it's impossible to pose kids and that's OK.

Children Studio Photography Boston MA https://www.claudiaphotography.com/blog/2015/2/-children-studio-photography-boston-ma Looking through old images I found these ones of my son when he was 5 years old. I was trying to create a holiday card and wanted him to pose in my studio with wings. He was uncooperative so I told him to bring a toy. He brought an electronic bug that he built with his dad the day before. That is what he is holding in one of the images. He is 10 now and I don't think I can make him wear wings!

Beautiful Hanson / Photos at the Farm https://www.claudiaphotography.com/blog/2014/10/beautiful-hansons-/-photos-at-the-farm Last Saturday we enjoyed the perfect farm day: foggy, cloudy, crisp and very colorful at Hanson's Farm in Framingham, MA. They have the most beautiful pumpkin patch I have ever seen and still lots of colorful flowers. But let's the images speak for themselves:

Last Days of Summer / Portrait Photography https://www.claudiaphotography.com/blog/2014/9/last-days-of-summer-/-portrait-photography It's challenging to blog in September and October. It's my busiest season, but I do feel grateful that so many families entrust their memories to me. This session was done only last week at the Wayside Inn in Sudbury. This was my second session with this family. The first one was exactly one year ago when this gorgeous little girl was only 1 week old.

The Colors of India / Wedding Photography https://www.claudiaphotography.com/blog/2014/5/the-colors-of-india Srikanth and Swati married in India and had their wedding reception in Massachusetts surrounded by family and friends.

The Visit / Framingham Fine Art Photographer https://www.claudiaphotography.com/blog/2014/3/-Part-II These photographs were part of a personal project I started this past spring. One of my favorite composers Loreena McKennitt writes “I have long considered the creative impulse to be a visit – a thing of grace, perhaps not commanded or owned so much as awaited, prepared for. A thing, also, of mystery.” These photographs endeavor to explore some of that mystery.

A Farewell to Autumn / Portrait Photographer https://www.claudiaphotography.com/blog/2013/11/-Portrait-Photographer This is my latest session at the Natick Organic Farm and probably the last one of the year in this gorgeous spot since fall is coming to an end. We were lucky with a warm and sunny day. The kids enjoyed the animals, especially the farm cat. I love the image of the siblings by the barn. The sun was hitting the front of my lens which created an old fashioned soft and washed look. Enjoy this preview!

Three Generations / Sudbury Family Photography https://www.claudiaphotography.com/blog/2013/10/-Sudbury-Family-Photography The Wayside Inn in Sudbury is a great place for family photography. We had this session this past weekend. The colors were vibrant. I think the purples and blues go very well with the foliage. The first image was taken in the garden next to the restaurant and the others were done at the Grist Mill.

Farm Fresh Session / Lifestyle Photographer https://www.claudiaphotography.com/blog/2013/9/-Natick-MA-3 Lately, I have been having lots of family sessions at the Natick Organic Farm in South Natick, MA. These sessions are a lot of fun for the children as they get to see all the animals of the farm being fed by the farmers and also being released from their cages where they have spent the night. Soon they forget about the camera and I get lots of smiles and fun gestures. This is the first farm post. I hope you enjoy the images!

Baby Girl / Spring Photography in Boston https://www.claudiaphotography.com/blog/2012/5/-Spring-Photography-Sudbury-MA This little girl just didn’t stop smiling throughout the session. She loved the flowers, the lake, and the trees. It was by far one of the easiest photography sessions of the season. I love the light blue tutu against the green foliage. Enjoy the preview.

Beautiful Boy / Boston Children Photographer https://www.claudiaphotography.com/blog/2012/5/-Boston-Children-Photographer Another session with this beautiful and happy little boy with very expressive eyes. His parents were celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary on the day of the session. We headed to the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain for these images. I particularly love the image of him sitting in a basket, next to that old huge tree. These are just some favorites.

Outdoor Family Photographer / Natick MA https://www.claudiaphotography.com/blog/2011/12/-Natick-MA These siblings had a great time at Cochituate State Park for their holiday pictures. Mom decided to use primary colors and I think that was a great idea. I love how the colors work with the greens and earth colors of autumn.

Boston Wedding Photography https://www.claudiaphotography.com/blog/2011/10/Boston-Wedding-Photography Andrea and Taylor’s love story started in 2004 when they met at a party at the skydiving club where they were members. They had a beautiful October wedding on the Charles river at the Harry Parker Boathouse in Brighton. They finished the ceremony in great style, the groom piloting a rowboat on the river with his new wife, who wore black silk gloves and held an embroidery parasol. Enjoy this mini-preview!
