I hope the title says its all. This famous Bear baby – his name is Barrett but his family call him Bear..how fitting, I  photographed January 2010 and was featured the cover of baystateparent Magazine turned one this past January and also won Gold at a national parenting publications competition for cover photography and design.

I was away in Chicago this past week to surprise and celebrate one my sisters for her birthday when I got a message on my facebook business page from the Editor of baystateparent. I was so surprised and thrilled to have one of my images featured on the cover for their Gold winner at the Parenting Publications of America annual editorial and design competition. Bear was just about 2 weeks old when I photographed him in this adorable bear hat which was chosen to be on the cover for their Baby Gaga March 2010 baby issue.   He was so snuggly and sweet during his session ; this is still one of my favorite newborn photographs.  Those of you who have visited my studio will recognize this image that is hanging huge on my wall. 🙂

Fast forward to this January and Bear turned One!  Boy has he changed…he is such a big boy and almost looks like his big sister twin.  He is still as cute as can be.  Here is the cover from last March 2010 and here are some recent photographs from his in home session with his big sister Alex who is now 2.  A little birdie has told me that Bear and Alex will become big a brother and sister this summer.  Stay tuned to meet their new baby later this summer.

A big thank you to Lauren and Craig for allowing baystateparent to feature their son on the cover last year and a thank you to baysateparent ( Carrie and Paula) for choosing this image for their cover.  Also a big Congratulations to baystateparent magazine and their state for all 17 awards they won!  Well deserved awards!
