Children + Toddlers

Crabapple Photography is Boston’s Children Photographer

One of the great things about toddler and child portrait photography is that it is a wonderful way to capture the changes in your child throughout the years. Whether it’s sweet toddler photos showing that they’re not quite a baby, not quite a big kid. Or photos of them starting kindergarten and beyond. You’ll love getting to watch your children grow and change in these portraits.

Toddler Photographer

Before I had kids of my own I had no clear idea of what the toddler phase encompassed including when it began, or when it ended. All I knew of the phase were the echoes in the back of my mind that it would be a horrible time. When my twin girls turned one year old (that’s them in the tee pee in this gallery!), I was told they were officially “toddlers.” That was fast!

And as I lived through the toddler years, certainly there were tantrums and hard times, but I’ve learned to truly love this age of imagination, exploration and exploding communication skills. The best feeling in the world is when a tiny human, who you’ve loved from before they were born and for whom you’ve sacrificed more than you can remember, runs up to you, gives you a squeeze and tells you that they love you in their sweet voice. My heart just exploded into 4 billion pieces just thinking about it!

Whether your toddler is one year old, two years old or three years old, this is an age you do not want to forgot. Be sure to capture your child’s portrait at this stage.

Child Portrait Photographer

My twin daughters are officially passed all baby and all toddler phases. I have elementary age children. It can be a hard pill to swallow sometimes! But the truth is, they are still very young and still in a period of rapid growth and change. I have to remind myself that one day I will look back at these years as I do their babyhood and toddlerhood: that it was truly fleeting. They will not be this way for much longer, soon the teenage years and young adulthood will be upon us.

I put together a blog post on why 4 year old portrait sessions are fun and included some tips on what to expect and how to get the most out of your session. But the fun doesn’t stop at four years old! I photograph children all the way up through teenager hood.

Portraits Make Great Gifts

And as an added benefit to these portrait sessions, they make great wall art and gift options. Especially for certain family members who have everything and are difficult to shop for! Whether you’re looking for framed artwork or canvases for your own home, a custom album as a keepsake, or smaller gift ideas, we’ve got you covered!
