caroline | photographs in beacon hill and boston common

Caroline is in the process of completely rebranding her blog. Since she’ll have a shiny, new website design at the end of this month, she wanted some portraits taken, too. Everyone needs pretty photographs for their blog, right?

We decided to snap photos in Beacon Hill and Boston Common — two of my all-time favorite areas in Boston!

    Great pics, but I adore the ones with the cobbled streets and lamp-posts – gorgeous! I would love to go to Boston one day and that is how I picture it.

      Yes! That’s my favorite area. I plan on going back there this weekend to check out some of the cafes.

  • Amanda

    Is it just me or does your photography keep getting better and BETTER?!?! Great job with these Rachel! :) You’ll go far, I know you will!

    • Postcards from Rachel

      Aww, thanks! I’m trying… ha. ;)

      But I can tell I’m getting better, too. It’s all about feeling comfortable – and practicing a lot!

      • Amanda

        It’s ALL about the practice!!!!! I wish I had photo subjects to shoot! I’ll stick with landscape/travel photography until then. :) great job as always. Those bloggers in Boston are lucky!

    You’ve got some great photos, Rachel! I think she should use one of the pics of her sitting in the middle of the brick steps as a profile image. It’s so warm and cheerful- sure to draw in readers!

      I like that one, too! The colored leaves all around her add a nice pop of color.

  • Caroline
