Rachel + Josh + Elijah + Max :: Boston Family Portraits

So I’m sitting on a plane flight back from Toronto 3 nights ago (yes, my travel schedule has remained at warp speed) and I’m editing this family session. I realize at some point that I am grinning from ear to ear, listening to Van Morrison or some such and thinking that my life really doesn’t suck. I have the best (and most patient) clients in the world and this family was no exception.

Meet Rachel and her lovely family. I’ve known Rachel since I started teaching with her 6 years ago (seriously Rachel, can you believe that it has been SIX YEARS?!?!). I photographed Rachel and Josh when they first got engaged, and then photographed their first little one, Elijah, when he was a newborn, and then this time around I photographed their newest addition, baby Max. It really was supposed to be a session for Max, but when your family is this fun they have to join in on the pics too. So, without prolonging this post any longer, here is Rachel’s family session!

 

Meet baby Max!

Maybe my favorite shot of the day. Rachel, here are all your boys. ;)

I realized after I looked at the old post of their first family session that I have a shot just like this one of Josh and E too. ;)

Ha…I felt that this summed up the day. Love that Elijah is still content on being the center of attention. ;)

Rachel really wanted this shot because we had one of Elijah on the red ottoman. Kind of perfect…no?!?!
