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….

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…

A baby brother for M… Cleopatra Photography – Boston Mass Newborn Photography

ok, so lets just start by saying what an amazing set of friends E has! They (the girls from her work) contacted me asking about gift certificates for their GF who was about to have a baby “any day now”. I was super excited to be a part of such an awesome gift! ahhh so adoreable! and you all know I love my newborn sessions!

Sure enough she did have that baby within a week, she contacted me and here we are… Meet Mr. W.

he was a precious little guy! not  4 lbs little but… little… he was WIDE awake for the majority of the session… but when we got him as relaxed as can be….

he finally gave in and gave up the goods!!!!

I love my job.. have I mentioned that before???? 😉

So anyways… this was an adoreable family… they had an amzing yard, and an awesome old school camaro. I’m always up for anything, so yeah….we used that too!!

I will never forget Mr. M…. He was just such a ham in the most amazing way! I mean at every turn, he was showing me just how good he was at “modeling”.

But it was all so natural…. he genuinely wanted to laugh and jump and play… and he wasn’t scared of me or the camera and all my crazy antics getting him to laugh

and interact with his new “gift”,  baby brother W….

I love the images of them together… I could have snapped all day with these two…

Thank you K and E for inviting me into your home, and introducing me to your amazing boys…. I hope to see you again in the future! Best of Luck!!!

ok everyone…enjoy a piece of their memories…
