Lukas, Marilyn and Dennis – Family Shoot in Roslindale

Ok, so I might start sounding like a broken record, but I am loving this! Seriously, people let me into their homes to shoot themselves, their children, their special moments in time and well….that’s what they hire me to do! This is a dream job, it is so natural, so fulfilling and just so ME!

A few weeks ago Maarit and I traveled to Roslindale to do a family shoot for an ex-Boston Machine Loft family from Lynn. Marilyn is a trip and it was super cool to shoot her and her family. I should note that family includes Angus, and he was there before Lukas, as child number one so to say…so I captured them all! At first I was bummed about the rain that kept us inside – we tried to take some umbrellas outside for some cool shots, but it was just raining too hard….but hey, inside worked and we rocked it!

Thanks for Marilyn, Dennis and Lukas (and Angus) for their cooperation and awesomeness for this shoot! I definitely have to come back and visit when the weather is a bit nicer in the spring and get some shots in for ya! OK — so wait, I have to say that I LOVE the family portrait on the couch, it’s my favorite. Now, I know that some might think – hey, well that’s not the type of portrait I am used to, not everybody is smiling and they aren’t all looking at the camera…BUT this is the moment, this is the REAL moment, the REAL family photo….the one that makes you want to look again, the one that makes you feel and think….and it captures the realness of this family….without words, this is why I love being a photographer…. You guys were GREAT – thanks for the opportunity to come into your home!

Here’s a little teaser!

Yakitoriya - Very inspiring iedend! Money, as a value of its own, is empty. We work as slaves, we spent most of our lives doing what we think we have to do, so that we can catch glimpses of what we really want to do in our limited spare time What a waste of time and life!

Tania & Family at Faneuil Hall – Boston

A few months ago I worked alongside a great photographer, Tania Sones, at the Golden Lamb Buttery in CT. I was the DJ at the wedding (great wedding btw) and slipped her my new business cards for my photography business. Well, she called me to take photos of her family!

Seriously, this was definitely a great opportunity, but it was also intimidating! Tania is one of the sweetest photographers I have met and she is so open and willing to share the awesome information she has regarding weddings and photography. I mean, I shouldn’t have been so intimidated, but I was. I was taking pictures of a professional photographer and her family at Faneuil Hall and they drove up, all the way from CT for this!

Tania, her mom Maria, and sons Aiden and Alex were all awesome. Maarit and I had a great time spending a few hours with them. Oh, and we found the PERFECT red door, always fun to find great doors. We heard a choir from Cornell sing some carols and took a walk down to the water and saw some boats. And all the decorations were out for Christmas, I loved it! I am so thankful for the opportunity and here are some of the images from the day. There are a bunch of great ones, hard to decide what to post…but here are just a few!

SOAR Scholarship Application – Me Ra Koh

I stumbled across an amazing opportunity a few weeks ago and just completed my application video. Me Ra Koh, a great photographer has put together the SOAR Scholarship for 2010. Three lucky women will be given an amazing learning opportunity to prepare them, and propel them into the world of professional photography.

I work full-time and have many school loans to pay off. Heading into an entirely different profession is not the easiest thing to do. There is so much knowledge to gain, and there are so many great photographers out there putting out great workshops that I would love to attend. But the money just isn’t there to do those things. I have been doing all I can to research and learn online, through books, magazines, and network as best as I can with other local professional photographers. But this SOAR Scholarship holds priceless opportunities.

Three lucky women will be mentored by some of the greatest photographers out there – Me Ra Koh, David Jay, Carey Schumacher – they will attend various workshops around the country and will have homework and assignments to help them build confidence and skills necessary to be successful as a photographer. In return for this educational experience, the women will document their journey through blogging and video blogging on a regular basis. During this 12 month journey these women will get a chance to soak in information from the best and most successful in the business. And it’s not just the technical stuff, it’s the life stuff, the real life stuff that’s important to learn as well. Seriously, I can’t put it into words what a tremendous opportunity this would be if I were awarded a scholarship.

Ok, enough from me because I could keep going on and on about it. I made a video and posted it along with my application today. The video submitted was 2 minutes long – but I had to edit it down to meet time requirements. The original take was nearly 4 minutes long. That is the version I have posted for you. My approach was to just be me. I didn’t script anything. I pushed record and just spoke from my heart. I felt that being me, being in the moment, and being absolutely candid would be the best video I could make…..I get a bit emotional, but hey, this whole journey, following my dreams to be a photographer — it IS emotional and it IS empowering and every step I take towards these dreams, I am just SO thankful I saw the light of what “could be” in my life!

Adie, Emily and Alex Family Shoot

This past weekend I had the pleasure of participating in a family photo shoot with Adeline (Adie), a two and a half year old, and her parents Emily and Alex. This would be my third family shoot in just a short time, but the FIRST with a toddler. I suspected that a wee little 2 year old might not be the most excited about paying attention to my camera and smiling for it….and well I was sort of right – these 2 year olds can be tough! I had SO much fun on this shoot though, and in the last 30 minutes Adie even got to the point where she WAS enjoying the “paparazzi” attention I was giving her! I should add that Adie was awesome, but she just had other things she was more interested in then smiling for me..and if I was in her shoes, I would have felt the same

Seriously, it was such a pleasure doing this shoot, and I have a ton of great pictures to go through…but I wanted to post a sneak peek of the little moments I captured during our time together. These are some of my favorites. I’m not sure which image will make the family holiday card, but I can’t wait to find out!

Maarit - These are breathtaking, Kristin! (I’ve been feeling a bit under-the-weather, but these made me feel so happy!)

Angela and Josey in Davis Square

I’m on a roll tonight and enjoying the time I’ve had to edit these pictures from a couple’s shoot last week. Angela is Maarit’s ex-coworker and a big fan of mine, thank you Angela! We cooked up a little something and put together a shoot for when her boyfriend Josey was in town to see The Swell Season and I have to say, it was indeed a fun time! Oh, and as an aside, Angela and Josey did meet Glen Hansard the night before – for like the hundredth time…they are apparently very good at finding his tour bus…

This was my first couple’s shoot…and well, I have to say that it is pretty much like my practice for an engagement shoot – the only thing missing was the ring! (and even though Maarit offered hers, I just didn’t think it was necessary to play the whole thing out)

Any how, so we traveled around Davis Square looking for some cool locations to click away. Props to Angela and Josie for being so patient and fun! I had a written out a note card with all the shots I wanted to try out and I was determined not to miss any! This was my chance and I was going to make Angela and Josey work…well, actually they were having a great time, so it wasn’t really work – it was definitely all play!

After the shoot we grabbed some lunch at the Joshua Tree. I hadn’t been there in ages and it was fun to catch up, eat good food and drink good beer! BTW, not sure why this place only get’s 2.5 stars on Yelp, it should get at least one more star?

I look forward to more opportunities like this one because I really enjoyed shooting a couple and working on capturing the love and the fun! Oh, and yes – here are some pictures from the day….

Maarit - Fantabulous!

November 20, 2009 - 9:17 pm

Angela - Thank you so much, Kristin. These are beautiful. I can’t wait to see them all!

Faxlee - Personally I would add The Professionals to any list of good westerns. I don’t have any soaloiogiccl or any other high-falutin’ reasons. I just like westerns and Burt Lancaster. The rest of the cast is good too.
