If I didn’t know any better, I would think this adorable family is strolling the shores of South Florida. Au contraire! This Southie Beach is right down the street from their townhome in South Boston and I am uber jealous that this is literally their “backyard”.
This Mama and I go way back to my pre-kid days where we used to work together at Longwood Events. I left the company in 2014 after I gave birth to my first son and shortly after began my family photography business. Fast forward 6 years and Amanda has a one year old and is killing it at event sales AND motherhood.
We began their family session in their Southie neighborhood in front of their adorable townhome. A few family snuggles on the front steps never hurt anyone. I also love how personal a front stoop picture is. Your front stoop is unique to your family and there’s something so classic about that photograph.
After some giggles and tickles on the front steps, we strolled down their adorable South Boston street and headed towards their local park. If you’re ever worried about a one year old’s ability to handle themselves at bedtime for a family photo session- incorporate a beach! Seagulls, sand, and water. What more could a child want?
In my opinion, no one would ever know that this was a tiny neighborhood beach in Southie and not a gorgeous beach in a touristy location. How does one do that? My three major tips are:
I could continue posting pictures of this beautiful family all day but I’ll leave you with the attack of the seagulls!
"To say that I love each one would be cliche and a total understatement, but seriously... She nailed it. Being a photographer myself, I am very picky and searched dozens of photographers before coming back to lyndsay and booking her and I am so glad I did. I can't even remember the last time I hired a photographer and was this in love with the images and unable to pick just a few favorites. Thank you, lyndsay, for making the photo session easy (with 3 kids), fun and providing this mama memories for a lifetime.”
"Our images are so special and really captured our joy and the sweet personality of our little girl. Lyndsay did a great job going beyond the typical posed shots and making our photos feel authentic. We will treasure them forever."

"We have done multiple sessions (family and newborn) and we’re so happy with the results. Lyndsay makes you feel comfortable and is able to truly capture the moment. We will have her prints hung in our house for years to come."

"We've done it all - newborn, maternity, cake smash, family photos - and every single time we are amazed by the quality of the end product. Lyndsay captures beautiful moments that we will treasure forever!"
