Lexington Family Session | Boston Family Photographer

Originally scheduled for one of the rainiest Springs on record, this Lexington family session had perfect weather — low humidity, gorgeous light, and happy teens (happy teens!  can’t get much better than that!).   We went to a quiet part of this park (no teens want to run into people they know unexpectedly 😉 ) and had so much FUN.  People often expect portrait sessions with toddlers to be playful, because that’s the only way toddlers really know how to interact, but portrait sessions with teens can be playful too.  The games are different, but the goal is the same: to bring out real moments and smiles and show the love within the family.  Even better, teens often have their own ideas of what they want to do, and I always love to incorporate those — sometimes they work better than others, but it’s so important that they feel like they are an important part of the portrait process.  It goes a long way towards getting good cooperation.  With parents who are willing to be a little silly and let their teens have that kind of input also, we end up with such a good dynamic that makes the whole session go so much more smoothly than when teens are told to “just smile.”
