Pregnancy Portrait Ideas Boston Maternity Photographers

Personally, I believe that the months waiting for your beloved child to be born are some of the most precious moments of your life. You are glowing with the budding life as well as your love for them, and that shines through in my stunning work as a maternity photographer Boston trusts. One of my greatest loves and passions is capturing the love between mother, father, and the baby on the way, and that is evidenced by the heartwarming photographs that I produce for Boston families.

I often choose locations to shoot in, such as a park that offers both natural and manmade beauties for the parents-to-be to pose on and around. This includes things like sparkling bodies of water and sprawling trees as well as structures like a beautiful footbridge or a bench. With the perfect location chosen for my shoot, I like to start off with a few shots of the happy couple together. I take shots that are cute and endearing, such as the couple snuggling up together by a lake and enjoying the time spent laughing in each other’s arms. We will also take a few casual and candid photos of the two smiling at each other, as well as some posed shots that look great in a frame.

I enjoy taking photos that include a few props that remind one of the baby to come. Usually, this means tiny shoes that your unborn beloved will soon fit into. Shoes can go in the foreground with the parents in the background. The shoes can also be held beside the mother’s tummy or each of the parents holding one shoe. There are a number of ways to incorporate an appropriately colored pair of shoes into your photos that you may choose to use as a birth announcement!

Another cute idea I like to incorporate is using the ultrasound photograph of your unborn baby. Mother and father can each hold a corner, or they can gently press it to the mother’s belly for an adorable peek into the life within.

Taking shots of the mother alone I find imperative. She is carrying a life inside of her and should be honored for it. I enjoy taking photos of her caressing her tummy that holds the child and looking down at the unborn baby endearingly. A mother’s love is unsurpassed and showing that in my photos is a privilege I do not take for granted.

While we are thinking about solo photos with the mother, it is important that we do not forget the importance of a father’s love. Shots of the father kissing or touching the baby bump, or otherwise being sweet and loving toward the mother and baby are important and precious.

There is no greater gift than that of bringing a new life into the world to shower with love and guiding it to grow. Let me capture the moments leading up to this when you contact my maternity photographer Boston service at PHONE/EMAIL today.

    Alaska: 7 days at The Last Frontier

    Visiting Alaska had always been on the bucket list for my wife and I.  So last week we embarked the last cruise of the year to Alaska on the Crown Princess ship.  The ship departed from Seattle on a beautiful sunny day, I was told don’t get used to it.  Seattle is normally a rainy city.  Must be my lucky day to capture a photo of Mount Rainier.

     

    20160910_alaska_1000__2mt715820160910_alaska_1000__2mt716120160910_alaska_1001__tam664920160910_alaska_1002__tam6653

     

    Sunrise photos of Alaska is definitely something worth waking up for.  Although it is much easier if you are jet lag like we are from Boston.  There are no better way to start a day than watching the soaring sun rise into the sky.  However, the sun quickly hide behind the clouds for the rest of the day.  

     

    20160912_alaska_1003__tam6674 20160912_alaska_1004__tam668020160912_alaska_1005__2mt718520160912_alaska_1006__tam668920160912_alaska_1007__2mt719520160912_alaska_1008__tam671520160912_alaska_1009__tam675720160912_alaska_1010__2mt7221

     

    At the first port of call Juneau we booked a helicopter ride to the glacier.  It was a 15 minute helicopter ride to the top of the glacier.  The helicopter landed on top of the glacier and we walked on what feels like a different planet.  A planet with cracks and holes in the ground that can extend 100 feet deep into the ground.  The water from the moving stream taste nothing like bottled “glacier water”, it tasted like enhanced water.  

     

    20160912_alaska_1011__tam679520160912_alaska_1012__2mt727020160912_alaska_2001__tam684620160912_alaska_1013__tam685420160912_alaska_1014__tam685620160912_alaska_1015__tam6869

     

    Back to earth we stopped by Tracy’s King Crab Shack.  The soup was amazing and the crab was very fresh.  The waiter that brought us our food has a very unique sense of humor.  If you are in Juneau for any reason, this place is a must. 

     

    20160912_alaska_1016__2mt7308

     

    Excursion #2 in Juneau.  After the crab shack I was tired and almost wanted to skip the dog sledding.  But I’m glad I stuck with it.  If you are a dog person, this excursion should be on your bucket list.  These dogs love their job, and they are proud of themselves.  Our Musher and guide were both great people, they love their dogs and it shows.  Although the ride is a short one, I got to play with some of the pups before leaving the camp.  

     

    20160912_alaska_1000__tam699820160912_alaska_1017__tam692120160912_alaska_1018__tam695120160912_alaska_1019__tam698820160912_alaska_1021__tam7040

     

    Alaska is famous for its wild life.  And during this trip we got to experience some of the wild Alaska that we came to see.  Bald Eagle, Brown Bear, Whales, Seal Lions were only some of the wild life that we saw.  One of the highlight of the trip was a Humpback Whales Jumping out of the water, it was a scene that I will never forget.   Kudos to our bus driver in Haines who made a last minute turnaround to see the bear one last chance.  

     

    20160913_alaska_1022__tam710420160913_alaska_1023__tam712920160913_alaska_1024__tam718020160913_alaska_1025__2mt734320160913_alaska_1026__tam726120160913_alaska_1027__tam7329

     

     

    20160914_alaska_1041__tam785420160914_alaska_1042__tam7854

    The highlight on the ship is probably visiting Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve.  This is the place where if you have someone imagine what Alaska was like, this would be their first thought.  And the actual scene was no different.  Every mountain is as picturesque as the last.  It was magical when a piece of the glacier collapsed.  You can hear the crowd from the ship roar like a rock star has entered the stage.  Although during most of our trip it was cloudy, for some reason when we entered this National Park the Sun decided to come out and shine on the mountain like it was welcoming us.  

    20160914_alaska_1028__2mt752220160914_alaska_1029__2mt754720160914_alaska_1030__2mt756320160914_alaska_1031__2mt759020160914_alaska_1032__tam767220160914_alaska_1033__tam7689

    As we started to departed the picturesque National Park, there were still plenty of beautiful scenery to capture.   

    20160914_alaska_1035__2mt768520160914_alaska_1036__tam775820160914_alaska_1037__tam776220160914_alaska_1038__2mt772420160914_alaska_1039__2mt774320160914_alaska_1040__2mt7842

    At Ketchikan due to weather being too rough, our fishing excursion was cancelled.  Instead of that we joined a plane ride tour.  Alaska from above looks like a different place.  Something smaller, something more vulnerable.  The hole on the last photo is a air hole, turn it around to allow air comes in.  It came in handy when I got a little motion sickness.     

    20160915_alaska_1043__tam786020160915_alaska_1044__tam793120160915_alaska_1045__tam803120160915_alaska_1046__tam8064

    What made this trip memorable were the people that we met on the ship.  Ray from the photo class.  Jeremy, Brandon, Miranda, Randy and Antoinette from happy hour.  Curtis and Kaitlan from Utah, let me know how you are doing with your Dog days Pet Pampering, send me photos of cute puppies!  Steve and Josie which we always bump into each other.  Darren and Charleene our dinner mate.  Rich from MA, we’ll be in touch.  Judith!  I never got Judith’s contact information, if you see this please send me an email to say hi.  Donna, hope you and your sisters had a good time.  Chris from photo class.  Sean and Taylor that we met in Haines, the trip was definitely more memorable because of you two, thank you for showing us around in Seattle.  Pat, Paul, Dave and Karen from the plane ride, it made what can be a bad motion sickness more bearable.  To Cindy and Steve from breakfast, I think I finally remembered your names.

      Wedding Proposal at Fan Pier Boston

      Wedding Proposal at Fan Pier Boston

      Surprise Engagement Photography • Boston Propose Ideas

      Engagement photography is a relatively new trend in the world of photography, but I myself have much experience as a proposal photographer Boston clients have grown to love and trust. There is nothing more exciting than your big wedding day–except perhaps the day that you get asked to marry your loved one. Many photographs are taken to capture your love at the wedding ceremony, but what about photos of the moment that started it all?

      mat-tam-photography-wedding-proposal-fan-pier

      When I begin my engagement photo shoots, I like to start off by staying hidden from sight, snapping a few photos of the couple doing normal things like taking selfies or talking quietly together. Then, the transformation unfolds as the groom-to-be goes down on one knee and asks the woman of his life to be his forever. This also provides me an opportunity to catch her initial reaction to the big question, which is one of my favorite things to shoot!

      mat-tam-photography-wedding-proposal-boston-fan-pier

      mat-tam-photography-wedding-proposal-photography-fan-pierThere are often many shots taken of the first time the engagement ring slides onto the finger of the happy woman, and the delight on her face cannot be overlooked. The process is completed with a loving kiss of which I also take a few photographs before I decide it is time to make my presence known.

      mat-tam-photography-wedding-proposal-surprise-fan-pier

      After congratulating the couple, I enjoy taking a couple of posed shots in the location where they got engaged. Memories can fade over time and be difficult to recall, but not when there are photos like these to remind you of the moment every day. Then, we move on to a few locations around town where I allow them to be themselves before the camera to truly capture their everyday happiness.

      Ring shots are important. I take a few of the hand that wears the ring posed on the back of the man she loves or against a nice backdrop, along with the ring still in the box it came in. The bride-to-be has her solo photo taken a few times where she also can clearly display the ring.

      One of the best parts of the process is asking the proposing party beforehand if they plan on throwing any sort of engagement party after the proposal. If they say yes, I hurry to the location to beat them there so that when the woman comes out, surprised by the love and by the amount of people there, I am waiting to capture her reaction. Not only that, but I make sure to get many shots of the newly engaged with their ecstatic family members so that they can look back on this moment and see how proud and happy their loved ones are. One of the greatest joys as a proposal photographer Boston families turn to is seeing the elation on their faces.

        Extended Family Portrait Session Bedford

        Family Photography Bedford

        Extended Family Photos North Shore Photographer

        Through my many years as a photographer, I have become a family photographer Boston clients have grown to love. They recognize my work as masterful, wholesome and fun. I strive to deliver photos that are as beautiful as they are touching, making my photographs beloved keepsakes that can be cherished by the whole family for years to come. It is my belief that family is perhaps the most important thing in a person’s life, and capturing that on film is my greatest passion.

         

        In order to truly tie in the family dynamic as one unique whole, I like to get together with my clients before the big day and discuss some of the finer details with them. Oftentimes, this includes the colors they will wear. I like for the colors to complement each other as it makes for stunning photos, and in some cases, I like the colors to match. Different shades of blues or greens or reds are versatile options. I will also choose a background and props that complement the color scheme, such as a grassy field or a nice warm blanket in similar colors.

         

        With the colors selected, it is then time to perform my job and be the family photographer Boston families know and love. First, I enjoy taking group shots of the entire family together. This not only solidifies that family dynamic, but it allows me to capture in one or more shots, several generations of the same family which I find to be an extraordinary sight to behold. From there, I break the family into different segments. I will have the children photographed with grandmother and grandfather, or mother and father with their children, the siblings together, and so on.

         

        I like to especially focus on the children, as they are often the light of the rest of the family’s life. Focusing on the older children first allows them to just be themselves in front of the camera without the watchful eye of the other family members. This is where we get their cheeky smiles and devious smirks; twinkles in their eyes or their toothy grins as they laugh and play. Then, we involve any younger children, such as infants, and let them do the same atop a soft blanket. I love capturing their innocent smiles mid-laugh or the way they curiously reach for the items in nature that are around them.

         

        Finally, I let the children be photographed with their parents. Sometimes this means both children with both parents. Other times, I like to separate them and let each parent have a child, as a child’s relationship with one parent in particular will come out nicely. There is a special bond between father and child, as well as mother and child, and this is something unique that I try to capture on film.

         

        The possibilities are endless when it comes to family photography, and I enjoy mixing and matching them all. If you have interest in my Boston family photography services, you can reach me by PHONE/EMAIL to discuss the details of your family portraits.

          Maternity Photos at Stoneham Middlesex Fells Reservation

          Boston Maternity Portrait Session

          Maternity Portrait Photography • Stoneham Middlesex Fells Reservation

          Your pregnancy is a very intimate and personal time. It is also a time filled with immense love for your growing child–a love that knows no bounds or faults, even before the precious baby is born. I strive to provide maternity photography Boston mothers feel comfortable partaking in, and this is evidenced by my delicate pregnancy photos that make the mother feel at home.

          I like to start this type of photo session by focusing on the mother by asking her beforehand to wear a stunning white dress of her choosing. Whatever she arrives in will be perfect, as the color white displays purity, and with this in mind, I hope to capture the purity of the love between mother and child. Then, I gently fasten a bow around her middle. This bow is the classic color blue, or the traditional color of pink, depending on the gender of the child. After a few shots of her with the bow, I opt to bring the father into the picture.

          Before the shoot, I also ask him to wear a shirt that matches the gender of the baby, thus, the bow. In these introduction pictures, the couple is pictured holding up balloons in blue that say underneath them the gender of the child. In this case, the balloon says, “boy.” With a few pictures of the balloons under my belt, we move on to intimate pregnancy photos, ones that show the father bent down to carefully kiss the mother’s growing belly. This shows the father’s love for the child.

          We resume with photos of the two of them together in the sunny, green forest. The natural beauty of their surroundings provides a stunning backdrop in which to take my photos. Often, as a Boston portrait photographer, I like to use natural, outdoor settings in a way that compliment the subjects of my photos. This way the setting does not detract from the family at hand. I add in a banner that the couple holds between them. The blue banner holds the happiest statement: It’s a boy! A few shots of them looking into the camera while holding the banner are followed by them gazing lovingly into each others eyes.

          I do enjoy taking traditional shots as well. These include images of the mother-to-be gently caressing and holding onto her tummy with delight in her eyes as she conveys her thrill regarding the life inside of her. She is pictured on a grassy, sunlit path in the woods, and her smile is as bright as the sunshine around her.

          Finally, I include a casual photograph of the happy couple together. No instructed posing goes into this shot. Instead, I simply let them be themselves and stand before me as the elated couple that they are, and their smiles truly speak one thousand words.

          If you would like to partake in this maternity photography Boston mothers have grown to love, I am happy to oblige! Let me use my experience as a Boston portrait photographer to provide you with keepsakes you will look back on forever. Contact me at PHONE/EMAIL for more information.
