Colorful, Stylish and Adventurous Foliage Outdoor Family Photo Session at Wellesley College | Family Portrait Photography by Zahar Raskin | Wellesley Family Photography by RaskinStudio | Wellesley, MA | www.raskinstudio.com
When life sends you lemons, use them to make some awesome lemonade, which is what we did when our original photo session date at beautiful Welleley College Campus got rained out. We rescheduled for the next non-rainy day, and it definitely did not disappoint. Braving some chilly morning weather, we were able to take advantage of the morning "golden hour" in addition to close to peak foliage conditions. What else can a photographer wish during a fall session in New England!! Needless to say that baby J. was all smiles, which just made the whole session into a small and fun filled adventure :) Dear Elizabeth and Alex, thank you very much for choosing RaskinStudio to document your beautiful family second year in a row! It is with great pleasure I would like to share a few sneak peak images from your colorful and stylish family session.

Even though the day started out with a bad weather forecast, it quickly turned into an amazing wedding celebration!!! We met up with this beautiful couple at picturesque LongWharf area by Boston Harbor and New England Aquarium.

Fun and Stylish Bar Mitzvah at Harvard University Hillel | Portrait Photography by Zahar Raskin | www.raskinstudio.com | Cambridge, MA
To say that this Fun and Stylish Bar Mitzvah celebration was just fun, would be an understatement!! Prior to having a beautiful Bar Mitzvah ceremony for their two sons at Harvard Hillel, I met the whole family for a casual lifestyle portrait session next to Harvard Business School. The weather was beautiful and as a result we were rewarded with some classic and candid style portraits as we walked around, slowly making our way to Harvard Hillel. We proceeded with taking some more formal pictures with extended family outside of Harvard Hillel, and I am happy to say that everyone was all smiles and ready for pictures. The ceremony itself was beautiful and took place on the second floor of Hillel house.
