Tea with Make Way For Ducklings Sculptor

I was asked to donate a photo session to the Jewish Children and Family Service’s annual fundraiser. Having greatly appreciated the JCFS’s mothers’ groups I attended when I had a newborn, I immediately said yes. My photo session was included in a package where the winner got to meet Nancy Schon, the creator of the Make Way For Ducklings sculpture, and then have tea at The Ritz. The lucky winners brought their grand children along for this delightful afternoon downtown.

I do believe the photograph of Nancy sitting on mother duck is my FAVORITE photograph I’ve taken this year. The kids & adults played around on the ducks for a while before strolling across the Garden to the Ritz. There we had the finest tea party in Boston.  Such a treat to get to know this family and to dine with an influential artist.

4 boys

Such a treat to photograph these boys again and to see how much they’ve grown.  The parents wanted a picture of the four of them for their holiday card.  Last year, Buzz Lightyear’s spaceship happened to be instrumental in helping me capture the perfect shot.  This year, the convincing item was Mom’s empty Starbucks drink with some leftover ice . . . just enough to pacify the little one for a minute.  Below are some of the more casual shots of boys being boys.

Nina Manolson

I met Nina in 2001, when my husband and I rented their first floor apartment. Her son Kobi was 2 or 3 by then, and a few years later her daughter Ruby was born. It doesn’t surprise me to hear other people say they like being with Nina because she has good energy. She really does. And she has turned her energy and expertise into a business. Should anyone need guidance/advice on how to “feed your children well in a world that doesn’t” or a class that helps moms “prioritize their health to look and feel their very best”, contact Nina.

Nina recently made an e-book and asked me to photograph her family for the cover.  I wanted to share two fun ones of her kids goofing around in between the more posed shots.  When I first got there I had a few minutes alone in her kitchen and I was able to photograph a few of the yummy looking things laying around her kitchen, as well.  Who knew seeds and nuts and grains could look so interesting!
