Blemishes? Not a problem! I re-touch all portraits free of charge. My sessions take place outside in the park at Newton City Hall. Sessions are super laid back, quick and easy. The following afternoon your photos will appear on this website in a password protected album. Once you've chosen your favorite picture I will hand deliver it to the Newtonian by their October deadline.
I would like to introduce you to two of the cutest kids that I have ever photographed (who aren't directly related to me!) Meet Christopher and Katie, 2 and 5 respectively. We spent the afternoon goofing around in their backyard and then at the local park.
This is Chris - I love his flip up hair style!
And Katie - Isn't she an angel here?
Smelling the wild flowers.
He is such a happy kid!
I love this one of Katie running towards me - exactly 5 seconds before she tackled me to the ground!
I was on the other side of the teeter totter thing - about to fall off with my camera in hand!
If you are from Boston, I probably don't need to tell you who Bill Brett is. With a 40 year career as a photographer at the Boston Globe, Brett has become a legend in this tight-knit city. His photographic chronicle of Boston and it's most influential citizens is like no other. Bill Brett has literally seen it all. Last night I attended a party in honor of his new book, Boston A Year in the Life.
Developer Joseph Fallon hosted the party at Fan Pier on the South Boston Waterfront.
A line of admirers and friends waited as Brett signed every last book. The line extended outside the tent for over three hours.
Carol Beggy (center) is a former colleague of Brett's at the Globe. Beggy wrote the text to the book.
Brett's daughter and accomplished photographer Kerry Brett.
It was a beautiful evening on the waterfront.

While the Drop Kick Murphy's played inside the tent, a fireboat graced the Waterfront in honor of Brett.
It was quite nice!

I didn't come to the party to work but people kept posing for me! Perhaps they thought I was filling in for party lines.
The photo to the right is of Brett at the Boston Marathon finish line, camera in hand!
Boston A Year in the Life took place between the 2007 and 2008 Boston Marathons. One picture, every day in between.
Brett delivered a touching speech about his love for Boston.
Ever since I first picked up a camera I have always marveled over the work of a Globe photographer named "Bill Brett". Before I even knew his story I made up my mind that this guy had the coolest job in the world. Thanks for being such an inspiration Bill!

A couple months ago Boston Magazine had a photoshoot of the Red Sox kids at Fenway Park with photographer Angela Coppola. These behind-the-scenes photos were not allowed online until the spread ran in their August Best of Boston issue.
I love this shot of Mikey - he looks like a model for J.Crew toddler.
Mikey spent his pre-shoot down time running around the ballpark as usual.
Me & Mikey.
Enza & Mikey.
The wardrobe for these 12 kids was out of this world - racks and racks of brand new designer clothing!
