The Santos Family

Last week I had the pleasure to photograph this beautiful family. I met Elaine about a year ago through PPAM, the Professional Photographer Association of Massachusetts and I am inspired by her commitment, confidence and will power to become not just good but great on what else she takes on as a challenge. She is a wife, a mother, a doula, and a photographer… a life of giving. But not today, today she is on the receiving side and I am happy to be able to give her this gift, the gift of Memories.

Even though we are photographers and we have a million photos of our families and everyone else, we usually don’t have professional photographs of our own families with us in it. That is now changed and I hope Elaine and her family will enjoy these images as much I enjoyed creating them.

Elaine is a birth, newborn and family photographer. She is also a Birth Doula where she provides emotional, physical and spiritual preparation for birth.
