Local Shopping & Services We Love

Boston Baby Photos

Jessica McDaniel of Boston Baby Photos is a wonderful local photographer specializing in black and white photos of infants, toddlers and families in the home. We've had her take pictures of our children and she did a fantastic job, with lots of smiles and more cooperation than we ever get when we're trying to take pictures!

Cool Dog Productions

A local mom who does online video birth announcements as well as custom videography! Look online to see some of her exciting work.

Isabel Furie Photography

Isabel came and documented the first Great Cloth Diaper Change event we held, and did a fantastic job capturing the energy of the event. Look through the pictures on her website, and I think you'll agree that she'll be able to capture that same energy of your own family as well!

Jaime Kidston @ Coldwell Banker Realty

How many people still keep in touch with their realtor after five years, even though they never actually bought a house? Not many is our guess, which is why we really recommend Jaime. She's a local Somerville resident, knows her stuff, and could quite likely turn out to be a friend long after the papers are signed!
