On the topic: Family photography. I get it. You have a ton going on, not sure what to wear or if the kids will behave that late in the day. More so, will Dad even want to participate?! That’s where I come in. Being one of Boston’s leading family photographers, I come with experience, tips and tricks to make this a very pleasurable experience for you, the kids AND DAD! (Afterall, that’s what you are paying me for! Right?)
Birchwold Farm, Wrentham MA
Shout out to my younger sister for showing me this gorgeous bit of conservation land in the sweet town of Wrentham, Massachusetts. Birchwold Farm is popular amongst its neighbors, especially dog-owners. With multiple natural trails and large open fields of grass, it’s a dog’s playground!
The Vetrano Family
I first met the Vetrano Family during my 2021 Holiday Minis. I set up a simple, white winter scene in my humble studio (which at the time was in my Ashland, MA home’s empty spare room!) and the Vetrano children were simply magnetic and magical. They came in and started their session shy, yet sweet. It didn’t take long until we were tossing confetti in the air and rolling around the floor. I knew I had to have them as clients again soon.
Mom mentioned she wanted to keep in touch for family photos when the season was brighter and warmer. So, we did just that. I’m so thankful The Vetrano Family chose to work with Blush Baby Photo for their Outdoor Family Lifestyle Shoot.
A Family Session at Birchwold Farms
With all of our Outdoor Sessions, we started 1-hour prior to sunset. This allows the family ample time for candids as the sun goes down. To get the family (especially the children) warmed up, we started tucked away a vast, heroic tree. We talked a lot, asked the kids what their favorite color is, who snores louder or can make a louder “roar”—that always makes for hilarious portraits.
Outdoor sessions are for roaming and exploring. A level of excitement builds as the families get calmer, more natural with me and my prompts. There’s a sense of bonding that happens with my, their photographer and them, the client. By the end of the sessions, I usually have a few, new little best friends.
The Perfect Prompts
What’s so lovely about Birchwold Farms in Wrentham, MA is the natural trails. No matter which way you decide to go, you have your pick of tall grass, wild flowers, fields of layers to roam through and stunning tress to compose around. A outdoor lifestyle photographers dream!
Birchwold Farms provided the perfect space for children to run around their parents, swing in each other’s arms and even do the most basic childhood activity, ring around the rosey—as I snapped away, in the perfect sunlight, with the perfect family in my camera!
