Don’t get me wrong, I love a serene open field and a good city arboretum family session. Today I want to chat about why my city clients should consider a city walking tour for their family session.
To me, a walking photography session is one where we begin at your Boston home (or a specific starting point) and move throughout a route with no specific destination. A walking tour allows us to meander along and take advantage of many different backdrops. If one area is too crowded or has bad light, we move on to the next. This type of session is particularly great for parents of active kids as it continually provides new stimulation!
Do you feel like your city apartment or condo is too small for an entire session? This is the session for you! We can begin in your Boston home (because what is more personal than a front stoop picture?) and then head out walking from there. Best of both worlds!
Are you worried about your 5 and under kiddo participating happily in your family photos? Fear not. This is the best type of session for potentially cranky right-at-bedtime kids. Fresh air, an adventure, plenty to look at. We can follow their lead and leave or stay longer at each spot as needed.
Are you the type of client who has a hard time committing to a photo location each year? Not sure if you want forest, field, urban or water? The nice thing about a walking session is that you can get a little of many of these items. Many walking routes will include a park for foliage or flowers, an urban feel, and even the Boston coast!
If you’re lucky enough to live in the city, we will create a route that ends at your doorstep. Parents of young kids know that there is nothing better than ending a post-bedtime adventure WITHOUT the inevitable bedtime car nap.
Do you have a child who sometimes feels overwhelmed when they step outside their comfort zone? Let’s go on your favorite walking tour of your ‘hood. The one they know well that leads to their favorite park or ice cream shop. Nothing warms up an easily overwhelmed kid like being in a familiar spot.
"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!"
