Pam and Dave’s Family Portrait | Jules Ko Photography | Boston

I photographed a friend’s baby shower and compiled the images into an album.  Then the friend’s husband who’s also a good friend, took that album and took it to work, and showed it to his boss.  His boss then hired me to photograph their eldest daughter’s Bat Mitzvah.  But since the Bat Mizvah was a year away, we had plenty of time to do a family portrait.  Pam, the mom and my friend’s boss, also expressed that her younger daughters, twins, hadn’t had any formal portraits taken since they were very little.

So last winter (yes, this is a long overdue), I visited Pam and Dave’s home and met 3 very precocious, and welcoming girls in the midst of beautiful winter afternoon.  Twins K & S were 9 years old at the time, and allowed me to capture some candids before the facial expressions started flowing.

The two very distinct fashion statements between K & S.

Jodi and Gary’s Winter Family Portrait | Jules Ko Photography

How about a winter session in the middle of the summer to refresh you?

This session is really, long overdue, this took place at the beginning of this year.  Jodi and Gary’s family currently live in Costa Rica, but they used to be prominent members in Cambridge, as the pastoral family at my church.  They actually left for Costa Rica as I was marrying into the church, so I didn’t have the pleasure to get to know them, but this session 2 years later was such a treat.  Not only were EVERY member of the family sweet, and generous to me, they were/are so sweet to one another, I was truly in awe.

While they were visiting Massachusetts, it was time to get their family portrait done.  And to visit one of their favorite places in Boston, the Arnold Arboretum, with snow in the background was an added treat for their friends back in Costa Rica to see.

The many expressions of their angelic faces!

Jackie’s Bridal Session | Jules Ko Photography

Wedding days are so packed and scheduled to every minute, with many loved ones wanting to spend time with the bride and groom, there might even be a traffic delay or a weather glitch.  When all that and more adds up, even a long wedding day will pass by in a blur for the bride and groom.  Bridal sessions (known also as re-shoot-, or trash-the-dress session) are a photo session that takes place at a date later than your wedding.  It can be a day after, or it can be a month to a year after.  All it takes is the bride (and groom if he’d like in a suit) with her wedding dress, and a beautiful location.  It’s a photo session in wedding attire when the bride and groom are rested, have a little more time on their hands, may want a location different then their wedding day (urban vs. nature), or may even want a shorter, simpler dress then the actual wedding gown.  With a bridal session, we can have more fun, and not worry about wrinkling the dress, or try a glam pose or two.  In the case below, former bride, and fellow photographer Jackie had a blast trying out bolder fashion accessories to her wedding gown.  A big thanks to the Linden Place, RI for the beautiful location, and John LaRoche for Blue Guava for the fabulous bouquets.  For the previews sneak peeks, see here.

Oh, bird cage veil, why did you become so trendy after my wedding day?  =) Jackie has a ballet background, so it was so fun to incorporate bridal attire with the other ultimate feminine symbol of ballet slippers.
