my little guy… is 2. Cleopatra Photography {Cleopatra’s Heart} Boston Mass two year old children photographer Ashley Nardello

This little boy came into my life, and changed it forever… he forever will steal my heart with his smile…. I cant help but smile at him… even when he is being bad… its almost too cute to believe…

He is a talker. He speaks in full sentences and has for months already… He sings He dances, he plays the drums…

He is my little man… my Puffin.. my G… my G-man… my Vanni… my Guy-Guy…. he is my heart.

Two years have flown by… I remember looking at him when he came out and thinking… wow… here he is… I have wanted you my whole entire life, and here you are.

One day all of the nights, and time I spend away from my kids will be worth the effort. That thought defines me, and I have never been more serious about anything.

I had an amazing day with my little guy… we played and laughed and spent time outside enjoying the fall weather… he loved his cake and tacos!

enjoy a few snapshots of Giovanni…

Baby Gi-Gi ‘s fall photography session – Cleopatra Photography {children} Boston and Central Mass Children’s Photography at Moore State Park by Ashley Nardello

I am in love with all things fall. The crsip air, wearing sweaters, the leaves changing, the hot cocoa and the smell of fires burning in the neighborhood, are all just a few reasons why…oh and Pumkpin white chocolate latte I love you!

anyways… I was excited we had a really warm day to take some pictures at the park… it was kind of windy yes… but by the end of the session the sweaters were coming off…

I met Baby Giana and her mommy and daddy at the park bright and early and off we went! I noticed a long walkway/trail covered in leaves that offered an awesome view full of bright yellow highlights…

A typical two year old Little Gi Gi made me work for these smiles! but she did amazing! A lot happens in a short amount of time=)

I love the pic of her throwing the leaves and also the pouty black and white image…

Thank you Becky for contacting me I hope we get to see each other soon!

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…

Where have you been!? Cleopatra Photography update! Central Massachusetts Photography

oh my goshhhhhh! So I just wrote a super long blog post, went to save it and BOOM.. something went wrong, and here I am with no draft!

URGGG… so anyways, here is a recap of the last post!

ok so how I have missed blogging! I just went on a little hiatus trying to get my family ready.. ready for what?

 

Oh a cross-country move that’s all!

YUP we did it! we finally made the move and are here back home (about 30 miles south of Boston)

It’s funny how when your younger you want to leave home, and as you age, no place feels like “home”

After being gone for ten years…we were done, and it was definitely time for a change.

I learned so much over the past ten years. I suffered so many hardships, and yet I REFUSE TO GIVE UP.

I have changed my life so much in the past 6 months its crazy! I started cross-fit and love it… yup I drank the kool-aid… To anyone who puts down the style or technique… don’t be ignorant!!! you can talk to me when you come to my gym…

There is no Pilates, yoga or zumba there… oh and no mirrors….sorry. 🙂 I kid…

anyways

I have lost 35 pounds since January… and almost 70# since I had my son. I feel like a whole new person…I am grateful very grateful… I did this for me, not because I wanted to make someone else happy… it was time for a change and I did it.

Earlier this year, I lost something that I thought meant the world to me, and its funny how now 6 months with it gone… I realized how I didn’t lose it at all.. I left it behind.

So here is to new beginnings…

I have had tons going on, and lots of photos to post during these past 90 days, but I am not going to blog each session separately… I know, I know…

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!

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..

The J Family’s day at the Naples Train Depot – Cleopatra Photography – {Family} Naples, Fort Myers and Estero Florida Family Photography

Hi everyone!!!! here I am with a look at a session from Last weekend with the J family! They did great! I even had baby E holding my hand over Mommy’s at one point! which according to mommy… “never happens”

Considering this was the first time I was shooting at the Train Depot I was pleasantly surprised! There was lots of color and variety! My gosh if you ask me a lot of these old historic places need new photos and websites! Because you’d never know how cool the place is without seeing it!

Since Mommy and Daddy are from New England we hit is off right away and the day was a great success!

enjoy your sneak peek J family! and I hope to hear from you soon!

I Abs love the next image!
