How to Style Your Little Guy | Tips from a Boston Child Photographer

Selecting clothing for your session, part two, and this time its all about your little guy. Again, working with layers and subtle pattern I’ve put together a casual but trendy look, I know from experience with my 4 year old nephew that little boys don’t want to get dressed up and stand around, they want to play, and this outfit certainly reflects that. Layer a lightly patterned oxford with a knit vest and a nice warm (and adorable!) jacket with a cool wooly collar. Add jeans and some converse sneaks and you have the perfect outfit for romping around outside and being a boy. This look was mostly pulled from Gap, except for the blue vest which is from The Children’s Place.


Alternatively, I’d love to see the jeans and sneakers with a white tee and blazer and maybe a loose tie in some shots for a bit of punch. The options are endless, and in individual portraits I love when the outfit has an unexpected quirk :)

Style Alert | Tips from a Boston Portrait Photographer

“What Should I Wear?” is a question I hear a lot. Of course, you know the basic rules – you can’t go wrong with solids, something simple – but its always fun to liven things up a bit. Clothing is a big way to inject personality into your portraits. Seeing that I don’t have any children of my own to shop for and I love thinking up cute outfits that would look awesome in portraits, I thought I’d share a few style tips on the blog :)First, let’s start simple. Dressing for one. I am a big fan of textures, layers and color, and this look combines all three – and bonus, once we get moving around and your little one gets warm, we have a layer to take off and create a refreshed look. Pair a simple colorful shirt with a ruffled cardigan, denim skirt and some crazy tights for a bit of fun. Finish off the look with a neutral boot, and a pop of color in the hair and viola – a modern, memorable, and fun look for your little princess! I pulled all these pieces from The Children’s Place fall line – one stop shopping.


Check back for my takes on styling your little guy, and pulling together a coordinating family look (without resorting to white shirts and jeans!).

Triplets First Birthday | Boston Event Photographer

Saturday I had to opportunity to assist my friend Paula for a triplets first birthday shoot. The party was held at the Four Seasons in Boston, with guests enjoying brunch and traditional Korean celebrations for a Tol. Caden, Caleb, and Cara were adorable dressed up in several outfits, including beautiful Korean dress.

This is my favorite from the day, I love that little face peaking out over mom’s shoulder!
The food looked delectable, even I wanted to try the sushi (and I’m the pickiest eater). I tried the Korean rainbow colored steamed rice cake, mujigae-ddeok.
Their grandfather prayed over each of them.
Following tradition, the children participated in a Toljabee Event. A bowl was filled with items such as rice, money and rope, representing plentiful eating, wealth, and longevity. Then the triplets picked up an item that attracts him or her and the child’s future is predicted according to the what he or she grabs. I thought this was so interesting, so I researched a little online and found out that Korean parents usually place the items that they want the child to choose near to the edge of the bowl – that would explain why Sang (a dentist) put a dentist’s tool in the front of the bowl! All three children picked the dentist’s tool which was funny for everyone.
The table upfront had a gorgeous first birthday cake, and the family cut the cake together.
Happy First Birthday to the triplets!
