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…

The wait for baby Liv… Cleopatra Photography {maternity} Central Mass and Boston Lifestyle maternity photography and Berlin Orchards Maternity Photography by Ashley Nardello

Lets Kick this day off with an adorable session with Donna and Jeff!

So cute , so in love and so ready for baby Olivia to be here…

We met bright and early and OMG cooollld… at Berlin Farms for some shots in the apple orchards there!

I chose the apple orchards for them because I thought that the idea of a seed beginning the life of an apple is similar to a woman being pregnant

I wanted to use the orchards as a form of symbolism…

A BABY… beginning from “nothing” and growing into an amazing miracle that is a baby

An APPLE… beginning as a seed growing into a beautiful fruit… you get the idea…

They were all for it and off we went…

hiking in her heeled boots this mama to be gets an A++ for effort and for getting up the orchard hills!! oh and props to the home-made name flags made by Donna! you go girl… way to bring something special into the photo shoot!

I am so excited to meet baby Olivia and cant wait to get her on these floors! you’ll see what floors later… 😉

enjoy my time with Donna, Jeff and Baby Olivia….

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…
