Meet Jackson… Cleopatra Photography {Newborns} Newborn photography Boston Massachusetts and Newborn Photography by Ashley Nardello

Hello everyone! SOOOO here I am with Mr. Jackson. aka Jax as I like to call him…

If you follow me regularly you know that I usually don’t name my babies.. after much consideration I thought… why not? I am not using any last names or identifying personal info.

After all, I am trying to give you all a personal look at my work and in to my life.

You know me, you know my kids, and now you will also “know” my clients.

So having moved back to the Boston area recently, I have been able to reconnect with people who are people I haven’t seen in yeaaarrrrs  (a decade plus)

Jackson’s Mommy and I know each other from High school, Good old Marlboro High. She is actually really good friends with my sister – in – law and they have kept in touch all these years! Not to mention my husband used to play baseball with her husband and have known each other since they were pitcher and catcher…

It’s so crazy being back for all of those reasons! Before we  know it Jackson will be 2 and Giovanni will be 4,  and they will be playing together growing up… continuing on like Nick and Chris.

So When Renee contacted me about having pics done of their little guy, I was so happy to oblige.

Jackson came into this world with a bang being born after an emergency C-section… according to mommy the nurses called him “lucky” … I’d say so….  having a knot in the umbilical cord and having it wrapped around his neck… lets just say that it made for an eventful arrival said mommy…

let me tell you Jackson is a fighter! He made me and mommy and daddy work for the goods! but we got them…

ok so here we go!

When I got to their house the first thing I noticed was that they had a wheel barrel in the back yard that said Jackson on it! it helps to be observant hehehe…

so being that the high today was 65 degrees… I had some reservations about having him outside… but he did great.

Enjoy the time I spent with Jackson…

mommy kept calling me his girlfriend lol… We laughed so hard because it was hilarious how he couldn’t take his eyes off of me… lol this little observant guy definitely has a place in my heart!

Renee and Nick congrats on the birth of your little man…

here are some of his images from today…

The S family at Lakes Park! Cleopatra Photography {Connected} Fort Myers and Naples Family Photography

Hi Everyone!

The day of the super bowl,

(with my husband nagging about time!!!!)

I ran out and met the S family at Lakes Park for a mini session! What a great time! Little Miss E is growing so quickly.

I was really happy when her mommy contacted me for this family session…

Miss E is already 19 months! Hard to believe that the last time I saw her, she was just 7 days old! WOW

Anyhow… enjoy a few pics from their day!

This “Modern Family” Photography at Lakes Park In Fort Myers – Cleopatra Photography {Families} Fort Myers Family Photography

Hello everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday and is relaxing! The holidays are draining! BUT! I must say I love the memories they create… moments…. pieces of our history..

So the day after x-mas I headed out bright and early to get these shots taken for the B family at Lakes Park!

What an awesome group… full of laughs, and knew how to make a joke and take one! Some of this group was from the Boston area WOOT WOOT!!! Either way they made me feel like old friends 10 minutes into the session…

Enjoy their day at Lakes Park…

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!! From Cleopatra Photography 2011….

Wow what a day… I have been crazy busy, so sorry this is just getting up now,

Today, was a great day. There isn’t anything better in the world than looking down at my two kids covered in toys… enjoying their innocent christmas morning. Forgetting about everything in the world to just have fun.

We all need that. Fun. We also need love, we need friends and we need our families…

After losing someone really close to me this month, that has really begun to sink in… more  than ever… we all say it, but you never think it will happen to someone you know… tragedy that is…

I will hug my kids tighter, I will never leave without giving my husband a hug and kiss, and each goodbye will last that much longer.

I miss everyone that’s far away today terribly…

I’m lucky I have these smiles…. they make me feel like I’m “home” no matter where my head rests.

Enjoy my babies xmas pictures…

Merry Christmas Everyone…

Well, After K contacted me saying she had 18 people for family photos she wanted done… and in that 18 there was a set of triplets… I was so excited! My first set of triplets!

I Got to Sanibel and as soon as the crew arrived we were off… So easy to photograph! I know I know… 18 people! and they all were great…

All the kids had their own personalities and they shine through in the images!!!!… shy at first.. they all warmed up quickly.
