I love twins!  And I know what you are thinking – “Well of course you do, Wendy, because you are a twin yourself.”  Um, yeah, you’re point?  🙂

Anyway, back to these two cuties.  When I first met them last year for a holiday card shoot they were spirited and fun 3 year olds.  Fast forward to this summer and they are even MORE spirited and MORE fun 3.5+ year olds (those half years really do make a difference)!  All Mom wanted were some nice updated photos of her boys…for a few minutes there it seemed the boys had different ideas.  See below:

But I know how to play tag.  Not just any tag – FREEZE tag.  And here a little secret – I RULE at hide-and-go-seek.  But when all of those games fail, playing “let’s hide from MOM!” will always result in candid photos of two spirited and fun twin boys as they were when they were 3.5+ years old…The kind that Mom will look back on and smile.

I swear that I have the nicest, happiest clients out there and the Braun family is no exception.  Do you ever meet people and feel like you already “know” them?  That was how I felt with the Brauns.  Instead of “Hi, I’m Wendy, nice to meet you” I felt more like “Hey, how’s it going?  It’s been too long!” was a more appropriate greeting.

It is so nice when people gather to slow down and enjoy time together and the Braun family vacation on the Cape (and their photo session) was all about that.   A perfect sunny day on a pretty beach with a wonderful family – the perfect way to kick off the summer (for them and me!)!  And yes, I said “kickoff.”  This session was in June!  Since then EGP has been all over the beaches of Mass for photo sessions so check back to the blog often to see more!

One thing I love about a person is when no matter how much time passes you can always “pick up where you left off” as if you had just seen each other yesterday… and then catch up on all the happenings (read: gossip) in between.  And that was how it was when I met with Sara a month or so ago to talk about photographing her wedding.  We were so busy talking and laughing that her fiancé Andrew (who rocks by the way) had to basically pull the plug on us!

I am so excited to photograph their wedding next year because A) Sara and I share the same sense of humor so I think every aspect of working with her is going to be a blast, B) she and Andrew are just great (individually and together!) and C) between them they have three awesome kids who are non-stop fun. 

A few weeks ago we packed in a save-the-date, engagement and family session all in one down in Newport, RI where Sara & Andrew went on their 2nd date.  It was a perfect summer evening, the kids were all smiles, and no one got hurt…though it was a close call when Sara forgot she was wearing heels!

Looking so forward to the wedding!

I love dogs.  I grew up with dogs and cannot wait for the day when having a dog will fit into my life again.  I have always felt that a dog is a part of a family and when Lisa contacted me about photographing her family I was ecstatic!

Meet Penny, Hazel & Tally.  These furry creatures totally rocked.  It was one of those sessions where I was having so much fun I didn’t want it to end.  We chased, romped, pounced, cuddled, fetched, smiled…and then we chased, romped, pounced, cuddled, fetched and smiled some more!  You can tell that they are so well loved and cared for – a perfect little family!

At this photo shoot last week the location was so crowded…and it was so hot…and it was so windy…and it was getting so late for the girls…but honestly – it was SO perfect. 

The session was a birthday present for Mom from Dad and the priority was lots of belly shots, some family photos of the four of them before the next bambino arrives and then a few of the girls.  I think we covered it all and then some! 

My kind of family shot:

Only about 10 days away from her due date and Kellie looks AMAZING!

And once Ella warmed up to me (and was promised ice cream!), she became quite the perfect little model –  adorable.  

So great to see all of you guys!  I can’t wait to hear the news on the next baby Walgreen!

And I know that I am really far behind in blogs and promise to catch up in the coming weeks but I wanted to get these up before Kellie’s due date…which is like….right now.  🙂  Thank you to all of my clients for being so patient!

Kerri and Christine are best friends from their Babson College days and each is expecting her first child due just weeks apart.  When Kerri talked  with me about doing a joint maternity photo session with Christine I absolutely LOVED the idea.  As a twin, I appreciate the desire to share things and experience life together and believe the same goes with friendships.  When you are happy, excited, having fun, etc. you want to share it.  And as a photographer, I think it is just fantastic that they wanted to document it together too!

Someday I imagine their boys will look at these photos and say to each other “Hey look! We knew each other before we were born!”  Well, maybe they won’t say it out loud but I think they will be thinking that…when they go to college together….Babson College… 🙂 

Thank you, ladies, for inviting me to share and capture this special time in your lives.  It was a beautiful way to spend the evening.

Yesterday I headed out to the Brimfield Antiques Show for one of my absolute favorite events of the year.  I tell ya, it is a good thing I live in a 700 square foot condo – otherwise I would be one of those who show up with a U-Haul truck to pile in all of items I fall in love with!  Someday when I have a studio it will be completely decked out with Brimfield goods.  I swear. I swear. I swear.

Every year I hit up the tent of a guy who sells mirrors, frames and shelves made out of antique barn wood and tin.  I love this stuff (Wendy=slightly obsessed).   It reminded me that I wanted to share the wall display I did in my own home with some of the frames and a mirror.   I absolutely love it when clients get creative with their photos and display them as art.  There are so many fun and funky ways to enjoy your photographs that fit with the aesthetic of you home.  Why just save them on your computer???  Be on the lookout for some client collections here soon! 

PS That is me, waving “HI!” to all of you!  And yes, I know that I need to put something on top of that wine cabinet to fill the space between it and the frames.  Don’t judge.

Between eating and sleeping and teething and crawling what 10 month old really has time for me to take pictures of them anyway?  And so it goes…During our session last month, after some super cute Superman and Pooh Bear shots, Locke decided that dinnertime was the priority (I can’t blame him – dinnertime is generally my priority too).  

I knew we didn’t get as many photos with Dad as we would have liked so we rescheduled another time to get more pictures.  And boy I am glad we did!  I think we chose the most beautiful day Mother Nature has given us this Spring and we were able to get lots of shots outside with Dad, with a Duckie hat and a few more with Mom too!  Don’t you love it when a plan comes together?

What is a mini session? Mini sessions are short and sweet photo shoots (~45 minutes).  It is a wonderful way to capture of a few great moments with your child and family as an alternative to a full custom session that requires more time and investment.

When are the mini sessions being held? Eleanor Grace Photography will be conducting special “Mommy & Me” mini sessions from Wednesday, April 13th until Wednesday, May 4th, 2011.

What do you get? This year’s “Mommy & Me” mini sessions include a 45-minute on-location photo session, one 5×7 print of your favorite image, a high-resolution file of that print (sent right to your inbox!) and 10% off additional a la carte items.  You will receive a link to a private online gallery where you can view your finished images (typically 10-15 images for a mini session) so you can select your prints.

Hey Dads!  This is a great gift idea!  HINT! HINT! A Mommy & Me mini photo session is a fabulous gift idea!  If you want your baby mama to think you are a rockstar this year book a session for her!  Just as great – buy a gift certificate for her to use after Mother’s Day.

The fine print: The Mommy & Me mini session package is priced at $195.  Since this is for Mom, she needs to be in all of the pictures!   This is also a great opportunity for maternity photos as well.  All sessions are by appointment only.  Payment is due prior to shooting.  No additional session fee.  No minimum order.  Additional prints, canvases, albums and high-resolution digital negatives are available for purchase as add-ons.  This offer is only good until May 4th, 2011.

When is Mother’s Day this year? Mother’s Day is May 8th this year – so mark your calendars, Dads!  🙂
