Storybook in Real Life

One of my favorite things to do with my daughter is go to the library. We've been trekking there weekly since she was about 6 months old. It was there that I was introduced to the charming book, "Make Way for Ducklings". At the time we were living in sunny AZ and I wasn't familiar at all with Boston's beautiful Public Gardens and Commons. This trip allowed that book to come to life for us: I even brought a copy of the book and we read it over and over: on the "T", in the park, and even on the duckling statue.

What a gorgeous setting fitting for this beautiful family. I don't think I've ever seen a cuter little "duckling" than this guy. He placed in a contest I did last fall and I was so excited to finally get to photograph him and his sweet parents. I'm pretty sure I'm getting a canvas wrap of one of these for my office...can you guess which one? Thanks so much "C" family - it was such a pleasure working with you!

okay the photo where you picture the back of the boy looking onto his parents in the distance - is by far my FAVORITE picture I have EVER seen - keep that in mind if we ever can arrange a time for you to take our family photos!

Great Boston sessions! This one is my favorite! I'm thinking of lots of ideas for a Boston shoot and am very excited. I also love the one of the boy watching his parents in the distance. Amazing.
