Bonnie Baker

At the First Parish Art Gallery - September 14, 2007 - October 19, 2007

About the Artist:

Bonnie Baker, an award winning photographer based in Concord, MA, specializes in children's and family portraiture. Known for her enthusiasm and ability to connect with her young clients, Bonnie aims to create images that capture the beauty and personality of children, from their first days when they're just grasping for your finger, through the many wondrous stages of childhood.

A member of the Professional Photographers of America, the Professional Photographers Association of New England, and the Professional Photographers of Massachusetts, Bonnie graduated from Stanford University in 1993 having earned her Bachelor's degree in engineering and product design. She has been photographing children, families, pets, weddings and other events professionally since then.

When photographing children, Bonnie strives to capture each child's unique beauty and personality on film. When asked to describe her style, a recent client stated, "She was so patient with our son and took the time to get to know him. She really encouraged him to be himself."

As a member of the Professional Photographers of Massachusetts, Bonnie has won numerous awards for her work in children's portraiture, weddings, and landscapes. The awards she has won range from blue and red ribbons for wedding albums and portraits to the prestigious Kodak Gallery Award and the Fuji Masterpiece Award.

About the Mary Jo Rines Gallery At First Parish

The Gallery At First Parish opened September 17, 2000.

On September 13, 2011, the Standing Committee voted to name the Gallery in honor of its founder,
Mary Jo Rines, who died on September 4, 2011. A special exhibit of Mary Jo’s work was on display

Its purpose, as described by the founders:

The mission of The Gallery At First Parish is to add another dimension
to the spiritual fabric of our lives by exhibiting the work of visual artists
who seek to contribute to a deeper understanding of the human condition.

The Gallery is intended to be a service to the parish, the artist and the wider community.

It is open to the public without charge 9 AM – 4 PM weekdays, and 9 AM – 12:30 PM Sundays.
