I truly was overwhelmed by the generous response when I sent out queries regarding the Boston Mamas Have a Heart for Haiti campaign, and was doubly overwhelmed when the donations started coming in last week. To close the campaign I wanted to feature the top fundraiser, Jessica McDaniel of Boston Baby Photos -- Jessica contributed nearly $350 to the $1,850 total! Read on to learn more about Jessica’s work, as well as how she wants to continue to contribute to the Haiti effort this week.
Jessica is in her eighth year as a baby, family, and maternity photographer; her work focuses on natural, playful, in-home black and white photography. (However, if you’re a fan of color, no worries -- she shoots in color and processes to black and white so clients may choose from either option.) You can check out package pricing and more images at her website, but here are a few samples of her work.
I love natural photos where the subjects are simply captured in their element. Look how naturally happy everyone looks when they aren’t asked to look at the camera and say “cheese”:
I feel as if I immediately know the personalities of these three siblings from this shot:
And this beautiful maternity photo makes my heart ache a wee bit. Mercy.
Jessica also wants to extend her donation to the campaign. If you book a shoot and indicate that you heard about her through Boston Mamas, she will donate 10% of the session fee to Haiti via UNICEF. Simply contact Jessica by Sunday, March 7 to buy a gift certificate for a future session and be sure to mention Boston Mamas.
Thank you so much Jessica for your generous donation to the Boston Mamas Have a Heart for Haiti campaign!
