Featured Family Portraits


It’s featured families time! This week, our featured families are Melissa and Finn, Hales and Lianna, and Tee, Candice and Trinity. Thank you for sharing your families with us!



Melissa is one of my friends through blogging and mutual friends and all that good stuff that happens when friends of friends are discovered online and community is born. Though we’ve never met, we certainly feel like we know each other! I was thrilled when I put out the call for Featured Families and she jumped in! Melissa is a single mother by choice to her gorgeous 19 month old son, Finnigan.



Lianna and Hales shared their family with us through Instagram. Here’s a bit about their family from Lianna:

“Hales and I (Lianna) met in college at the University of Texas and moved to Boston together three years ago with our little Boston Terrier named Roswell. We’re both social workers – Hales got her MSW from Smith and Lianna is currently attending Simmons for her MBA/MSW.

We got married almost two years ago in Plymouth, MA. It’s a privilege to be able to get married for us, and Massachusetts is great for all the social supports the state has. But, our favorite thing about Boston is our home! We live at a wonderful coop with twelve other folks. We share meals, bills, housework, skills and stories. This year we took over landscaping duties from our landlord, so Hales and I get to get our hands dirty and use our new yard toys. Our house is an amazing support in everyones lives to bust through stereotypes of gender and sexuality. This photo is us playing yard dads during a beautiful Spring weekend in the city. ”
